Obama Threatens To Veto Bill That Would Stop Federal Funds To ‘Sanctuary Cities’


Barack Obama has promised to veto House Resolution 3009, Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act. Never, has the country seen a president so reluctant to do his job and enforce the laws currently on the books, as this bill would do.

H.R.3009 has received tremendous support from around the country after the slaying of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal alien who had been deported five times in the past. Steinle is another victim added to the list of tragedies committed at the hands of illegal aliens who are given safe havens from prosecution in Sanctuary Cities. H.R.3009 is hoped to remedy the thwarting of the law by such cities.

A summary of the law can be found on Congress’ website and states that the law,

“…Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to make a state or local subdivision ineligible for state criminal alien assistance program funding if it: (1) has in effect any law, policy, or procedure prohibiting or restricting communication with the Immigration and Naturalization Service or other government entity regarding an individual’s citizenship or immigration status; or (2) prohibits state or local law enforcement officials from gathering information regarding an individual’s citizenship or immigration status.”

This essentially says that Sanctuary Cities will not get federal funding to assist them with detaining, and processing illegal aliens that they find as long as they continue to refuse to cooperate with authorities who are just trying to enforce the law to keep everyone safe.

Barack Obama has used a similar method to further his ideology of “desegregating” America by withholding federal funding to communities with white populations greater than 50% of their total populations through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Though the methods used in H.R.3009 are consistent with the Administration’s subtle way of nudging people into the direction it wants them to go, Obama seems to have a problem with the purpose of the resolution that would attempt to put an end to sanctuary cities. Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that he has a problem with following the law, both throughout his life when he was a member of the Choom Gang, and during his presidency when he openly circumvented the Constitution with the use of executive orders.

In a statement from the Office of Management and Budget, the Obama Administration claims that it would stand against H.R. 3009 on the grounds that it,

                “…Threatens the civil rights of all Americans by authorizing State and local officials to collect information regarding any private citizen’s immigration status, at any time, for any reason, and without justification.”

It is interesting that the administration is so concerned with the privacy of a citizen’s immigration status, when that same administration is currently collecting information on a massive scale against every private citizen within the United States. Through the NSA and a twisting of the meaning of the Patriot Act, the Obama Administration has collected every phone call in the country. Even the primary author of the Patriot Act, Jim Sensenbrenner has said the Administration is, “…relying on an unbounded interpretation of the act that Congress never intended.”

The Administration has lied about the extent of the data collection, been caught in the lie, lied about all of the terrorist plots that they stopped through the unlawful wire taps, and then got caught lying again. An old saying comes to mind, “A liar is never believed, even when they are telling the truth.”

At least, when Barack Obama vetoes H.R.3009, he will remain consistent with his administration’s actions and seeming beliefs that thwarting and breaking the laws are positive traits.
