Sanctuary City Standoff

Two days ago, AG Jeff Sessions put sanctuary cities on notice--comply with Federal laws on illegal immigration or face being cut off from Department of Justice funding assistance.

 In response, the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle, initiated a lawsuit against the White House.

Other sanctuary city mayors followed-up with their own see-you-in-court threats.

A coworker and I were talking the other day about how much we use to love Seattle.  We considered it our favorite American metropolitan area.

Not anymore.

Now I only venture up to the People's Democratic Republic of Seattle for specific events at a single locations--not to do any sort of aimless walkabouts.

Proclaiming a metropolitan area a "welcoming city," (Newspeak for sanctuary city), is just one symptom plaguing our urban centers.

Derek Hunter wrote about bearing witness as our cities die.  He hopes we may be able to turn things around, at least in some cities.

I might be too pessimistic, but I'm not so sure.  It would take voting out all the leftists in city offices to begin such a venture, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
