Law to Punish Purveyors of Lawless Sanctuary Cities

Timothy Birdnow

A House Bill to jail officials who protect illegal aliens.

"Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita’s bill is one of the most aggressive pieces of legislation to date aimed at sanctuary city policies, going beyond the Justice Department’s threat to cut off grants to those jurisdictions.

"Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with,” Rokita told Fox News. "Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the law refuse to do so.”

His "Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act” would hold state and local lawmakers criminally responsible for refusing to comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts. The Republican’s bill would subject violators to a $1 million fine and up to five years in prison if they are convicted."

End excerpt.

This is in response to the murder and subsequent acquittal of the illegal alien killer of Katie Steinle.

Rokita is right; politicians don't get to pick and choose what laws to obey. The fact is, the only reason we have a government is to uphold the rule of law and to protect the individual. It is not supposed to be there for social justice, or to give us free stuff. It's very reason for existing is to create laws to keep us safe from predators, foreign and domestic. If certain politicians simply disobey the rule of law for their own political profit then we may as well not have a government at all. A lawless government is just about worse than anarchy. Look at Venezuela, or North Korea. The worst nations in history - the Soviet union or Nazi Germany - became so because there were people willing to dismiss the rule of law in favor of the desires of men.

How about Mugabe in Zimbabwe? His overthrow of the rule of law turned that country from the most prosperous in Africa into one of the poorest, most violent hell holes on Earth.

Sanctuary cities will ultimately do the same for America. Those who promote them can and should be punished, nay, must be.
