Responding to the latest warnings by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Department of Justice funds will be withheld from sanctuary cities, Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday he will fight efforts by the Trump administration to take away federal funding needed for law enforcement in Los Angeles. Garcetti said that such actions would be unconstitutional, adding that the city’s policies are “designed to keep our residents safe.” “Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people,” he said. “We will fight to protect the safety and dignity of all Angelenos, and we will work closely with our representatives in Congress to make sure that Los Angeles does not go without federal resources that help protect millions of people every day.”The way this is shaping up, it's sure to add more impetus to the growing Calexit movement. California has already sided with the sanctuary cities, and is even considering making the entire state a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Funny how liberals, who think their ideology is universal, keep proving that demographics is destiny without realizing it.
