Miami-Dade Will No Longer Protect Illegal Immigrants

Carlos Gimenez, the mayor of Miami-Dade County, ordered all county jails in his jurisdiction to begin complying with federal immigration authorities after President Donald Trump signed an executive order threatening to strip sanctuary counties and cities of federal funding if they do not cooperate.

“In light of the provisions of the Executive Order,” Gimenez said in a letter to the corrections department, “I direct you and your staff to honor all immigration detainer requests received from the Department of Homeland Security.”

Miami-Dade has refused to detain inmates for ICE since 2013, but the county’s position was based on economics, not ideology. They chose not to comply because the federal government would not fully reimburse them for the cost of keeping the inmates in jail.

From the Miami Herald:

Last year, the county declined to hold some 100 inmates wanted by the feds. Keeping them in local jails would have cost about $52,000 — a relative drop in the bucket for a county with a total annual budget of $7 billion.

In contrast, the county’s 2017 budget shows it’s counting on receiving some $355 million in federal funds — money that subsidizes elderly services, beds for the homeless, police officers and other government expenses.

Gimenez said it came down to fiscal common sense. “I want to make sure we don’t put in jeopardy the millions of funds we get from the federal government for a $52,000 issue,” he said.

President Trump wasted no time praising Miami-Dade for the decision. “Miami-Dade Mayor drops sanctuary policy,” he wrote on Twitter. “Right decision. Strong!”

Imagine that. President Obama “tried” to get these sanctuary cities to cooperate with federal immigration agents for eight years without success. Trump, meanwhile, has been president for only a week and he’s already making progress. Of course, it helps that Trump is actually interested in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws and isn’t just making a show of it to appease moderates.

Once the rubber meets the road, we’re likely to see more of these sanctuary cities reconsider their policies. Some will be defiant, no doubt, but many will choose federal funding over a nonsensical, illegal decree. And once illegal immigrants begin swarming into the cities that remain sanctuaries, residents there may have a change of heart.

This was one of the top issues of Trump’s campaign, and he is well on his way to living up to his promises.

    One down…….how many to go?

    • MidnightDStroyer

      Far too many. Even if only one remains, it’s too many to be in direct violation of Immigration Law.

    • Mamacat

      a lot of them.. I think we have a little over 300 .. or at least 300… not sure the exact number.. but ONE sanctuary city in this country is ONE TOO MANY!!

      Trump isn’t using a big stick as much as he’s really just taking away the carrot.
      😉

      • Mamacat

        He is enforcing the laws.. GREAT idea… should have been done years ago but our politicians through the years, have failed the country and the citizens… illegal aliens should NEVER have been allowed to remain in the country … they should NEVER have been rewarded with free handouts for breaking our laws.. this has done nothing but encouraged more and more of them to flood this country… when the illegal aliens enter our country, the citizens pay the price in more ways than one.. Thank God we have a president who actually wants to enforce our laws and put a stop to it.

        • Askjrsk

          Slaves. They haven’t been leaders but good slaves.

        • Jim Norris

          Illegals in ca. with driver’s licenses are the demonic party new slaves… They will do what they are told to for fear of being deported…

          These are not citizens, they are not friends and they do not belong here and are not welcome!!!

          Get the FK OUT!!! Get in line, get your papers and come back legally, otherwise you are the enemy!!!

          Wanted Any Illegal!!! 5000$ REWARD upon deportation…

          • Mamacat

            I just heard something on the news this morning.. they haven’t said much yet, but people coming here will need to show they can financially take care of themselves…
            when that gets out, you can bet the liberals will protest that too…that has been a requirement for years… but our government has ignored the laws… Thank God we have a president who intends on enforcing our laws…. and actually working FOR the citizens and the country and not against us…

      • Askjrsk

        PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP is brilliant. These morons will take decades to get what he is doing today.

        • AHRIMAN RISING

          Askjrsk,
          I don’t know, you might be giving the morons more credit than they deserve. After all, they’re morons. Unless they are suddenly imbued with insight and intelligence, they will never get what is happening now. How do you make someone who thinks President Trumps’ motivation is simply to keep people out of the country see and understand that his first priority, one stated in the oath of office he recently swore to uphold, is to assure the safety and welfare of the citizens already living legally in this country? For most, you can’t, that concept is beyond their grasp. Compounding that is the basic fact that no matter what President Trump tries to accomplish for our country, there will always be those who will refuse to acknowledge his efforts and accomplishments.

          • Askjrsk

            You are probably right. Soros pays professional protesters $5,000.00 a month according to Craigslist advertisments. California has over 800,000 illegal drivers licences. Estimates at this point in Calls alone up to five million illegal democratic votes. That’s illegals, dead people voting, over voting, pets voting . Investigation will tell us exact numbers. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP is most interested in California and New York popular votes. We know every state that there is some voter fraud.
            HILLARY people still are stuck way back at how could they be so blindsided that she lost. It wasn’t blind sided at all it was fake news we now know. GO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP!

      Amen.

      • willr3

        Mostly they are protesting because they have no marketable skill sets, and George Soros Open Society will pay these brainless idiots to stand there and hold a sign up and shout and chant along with the likes of the criminal Bill Ayers and lzzard Warren. there’s no reasoning or brain work involved and you get $15.00/hr. We need an Attorney General to go after Soros like Russia and Hungary did. They shut him down in those countries for disrupting the Government

          Patience my friend, as the saying goes ” All good things come to those who wait “. Jeff Sessions has a message for George Soros, to be delivered right after his confirmation as AG.
          You notice how long it took Trump to remove the interim AG? The man isn’t even bothering to take names, they fuck up- they’re gone.

          • Vincent Mancini

            Thank you President Trump. God Bless you. Keep up the good work.

  • Keep up the good work Trump! Next, San Francisco is a tourist trap, and I am sure the Mayor will NOT comply with the Trump order, STRIP THEIR FUNDING!!!

    • David in MA

      Arrest the mayor for failure to stand with law and jeopardize national security.
      (Jeopardizing national security, would that be considered treason?)

      • river

        Those mayors are abetting and harboring criminals and illegals that are threats to Americans and law in other states. Martial law is a sure fired fix, in short order.

        • David in MA

          Martial Law is not the answer, it effects the innocent as well as the guilty and in today’s climate, once put in place may never go away. Arrest those in authority, such as the mayor, for not obeying law., to me, is the answer.

          • river

            Martial law sends a message to the seditious state and it’s populace who disregard law, which CA has done for decades now. They want secession, too bad, if they get it, wont last long, federal troops will close the seditionists down as a security threat to Americans.

          • Askjrsk

            Brilliant

          • Jim Norris

            Throw the book at them!!! Make an example of them give them the maximum law allows…

            There is no society without laws and no country without boarders…

          • Vincent Mancini

            No truer words spoken.

          • AHRIMAN RISING

            David,
            While declaring Martial Law is indeed a bold step, it might very well be the only action capable of bringing the national situation into manageable parameters. Arresting mayors, or other civic leaders, without control over the mob, makes martyrs of those arrested without gaining control over their followers. Back in the late sixties during the protests over our involvement in Vietnam the government attempted to do what you suggest and we ended up with a group referred to as the Chicago 8 ( if I’m not mistaken on the number ). What was happening out in the streets then makes what is happening now look like a tea party. The confrontations ultimately led to the tragedy at Kent State, another campus no one knew anything about until 4 students were gunned down there by National Guard troops.

        • Askjrsk

          Yes

      • Sheila Vucci

        Yes.

        Not in S.F. David, there it is kneeling to strike a blow for the rainbow. If it’s not too much to dream about, it is conjectured that North Korea has a launch vehicle capable of reaching the western U.S. with a nuclear warhead.

        Fedup,
        MEXIFORNIA is already “going through the motions” to seceded from the “Union” I say LET THEM GO. One more state FULL of bleeding heart liberals and communists. (and of course SCUMOCRAT “voters”)
        Just one less State to “bail out” when they go under.

        • AHRIMAN RISING

          Pappy,
          There is no love lost between myself, and the population of California that desires to secede from the union. However, giving the land to those people is totally unacceptable. I did my basic training at Ft. Ord, followed by A.I.T. at the Presidio on Monterey. I’ve also been back out there to visit my step daughter who was stationed at Beale A.F.B.
          The bottom line is the land is beautiful, and those wishing to make it their own country are totally undeserving of it. The asswipes can ask Canada or Mexico ( where a good percentage of Cali residents are from anyway ) for land they can call their own. But we keep the land.

          • pappy450

            I can certainly understand where you are coming from, BUT the “inhabitants” of this “beautiful” land have basically turned it into a craphole full of illegals and bleeding heart communist liberals. I am surprised that the as much as the “liberals” DETEST the military, they would ever let anything to do with them to even remain there. (more than likely just using the servicemen and Women for the MONEY they spend in the area.) I can understand though where you are coming from, because I live in the COMMUNIST STATE of N.Y. (close to Fort Drum) We have a governor that is an asshole just like the fool in Mexifornia, and I have heard he is “proposing” the same CRAP. I guess it IS true LIBERALISM IS A DISEASE (and should be eradicated)

        “Hired protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement have started a #CutTheCheck hashtag and held a sit-in at the offices for the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now
        (ACORN) in Missouri after the group allegedly stopped paying them.
        FrontPage Magazine reports that Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to demonstrate in Ferguson. Last week, hired protesters who haven’t been paid held a sit-in at MORE’s offices and posted a demand letter online.”

        From that marxist, libTURD site, snopes…..”WHAT’S TRUE: A grantmaking network

  • SouthernPatriot

    Trump is shaking up the leftist mayors who chose consciously to violate federal law, despite all the federal funds they receive from the taxpayer. Trump promised LAW & ORDER, and is delivering it. Have you ever heard of any U.S. president that began fulfilling his campaign promises immediately upon being sworn into the office and continuing every day since.

    Obama promised the most transparent administration in history, but like he did almost daily, Obama lied. Trump is delivering on a transparent administration. He tell us what he will do, why he is doing it, what benefit it will bring for America, then signs it into law and does it!

It is disgusting that this country holds illegal aliens above the laws and above the citizens… It is refreshing we have a president who respects the laws and will enforce them… ALL law enforcement should be working together to enforce the immigration laws… the federal agents are NOT on the 911 calls that go out when a crime has been committed by anyone.. it is the local law who answers these calls, they should be working with the federal agents… We have a better chance of getting illegal immigration under control when they ALL work together…

    The best part is Miami-Dade’s illegals will migrate to the other sanctuary cities. Then as a few more relent under financial pressures, they will again migrate.
    Soon all illegals will be in just a few cities where the burden of losing federal funds and the cost of paying for the illegals’ freebie benefits will completely break them.
    These cities will also experience a huge rise in violent crime.
    Last but not least, since majority of illegals will now be more condensed, it will be easier to gather them up and sort them for proper processing ….. right out of the US!!!

    Thank you Mr. President Trump!!!

  • AHRIMAN RISING

    If we cut funding to CA we would have an extra $300 billion per year to spend on a the most magnificent wall the world has ever seen.

  • Miami-Dade’s Mayor Gimenez, a Republican, who openly and proudly declares he voted for Hillary Clinton, possibly made this declaration as a reality check.

  • Over the weekend, there has been endless hysteria by the liberal
    media about President Donald Trump’s Executive Order limiting
    immigration from certain countries which have ties to terror.
    Incorrectly referred to by the biased media as a “Muslim ban,” it’s
    simply limiting immigration from countries chosen by Barack Obama and Congress as a security threat.

    In 2015, Congress passed – and Barack Obama signed – the Visa Waiver
    Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act, listing the
    countries affected by President Trump’s Executive Order.

    Nowhere does this ban mention “Muslims.”

    The order makes a reasonable requirement that refugees must be
    delayed entry by 120 days while this vetting process improves. It also
    caps refugee admissions to 50,000 per year, roughly the number that
    entered America during a typical year of President George W. Bush’s
    administration.

    Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people from other nations
    traveled into the United States. But there is a real threat that some
    individuals posing as refugees have links to terrorism, which is why
    they cannot be allowed into the country without proper vetting.

    This hardly looks like a “ban” at all, and the numbers speak for themselves:

    In 2002, the United States admitted only 27,131 refugees.
    It admitted fewer than 50,000 in 2003, 2006, and 2007. As for President
    Obama, he was slightly more generous than President Bush, but his
    refugee cap from 2013 to 2015 was a mere 70,000, and in 2011 and 2012 he
    admitted barely more than 50,000 refugees himself. The bottom line is
    that Trump is improving security screening and intends to admit refugees
    at close to the average rate of the 15 years before Obama’s dramatic
    expansion in 2016. Obama’s expansion was a departure from recent norms,
    not Trump’s contraction.

    But throughout this process, liberals have claimed that Trump
    wouldn’t be able to work with foreign leaders. Apparently, his tough
    Tweets aren’t diplomatic. They must have forgotten that President Obama,
    who spent years as a “community organizer,” had no foreign policy
    experience.

    But guess what? President Trump has already worked out a deal with a key leader in the Middle East. This is a big deal!

    Why would they protect them anyway? Illegal is Illegal. I think I`m going to go to some Liberals houses and start destroying the property. Hell, If people can come in this country illegally, then why can`t I break the law ?

    • AHRIMAN RISING

      We should. All we have to do is claim membership in ” CAIRN “, if I have the initials right. Then we just inform the authorities that we answer to a higher power and are not subject to the laws of the United States. At least this is what the allah sucking sodomite from Texas is claiming.

    Well Miami Fort Lauderdale sounds like a grand and safe place to visit. More so than San Francisco, Los Angeles New York and Chicago.

  • TPS12

    We have immigration laws and we want them enforced. If cities decide to defy those laws they need to suffer the consequences and explain to their Taxpaying citizens why they as elected politicians will break the law in favor of non citizens and or illegals. If they all agree they won’t mind paying the bill and losing Fed funds.

    Forget OBAMAS Fun-dumb-mental changes y’all, m,a,g,a,. Trump is doing a great job. Bye bye parasites

  • Shelly Shannon

    This is good news. I’m glad to know there is a smart Mayor in florida who is willing to put his county and it’s citizens first. Thank you Mayor Gimenez.

    • AHRIMAN RISING

      Actually, I can see why this is gaining support amongst locals. It was in the early sixties and my father was stationed on Homestead A.F.B. when he took us out to the flight line and we watched the very first plane load of refugees from Cuba land. Since that time I have watched how those making it to this country, especially South Dade, have adopted the principles that the United States stands for, and these people are now some of the United States most ardent supporters. They are as disgusted with what some people are trying to now turn our nation into as the rest of us.

      • Shelly Shannon

        I don’t disagree with everything you say. I do think there are people that have come here with the best of intentions, and they have assimilated and grown to love what America stands for. However, I do believe that elected officials have an obligation to protect all their law abiding citizens. They have an obligation to follow the federal laws that pertain to illegals that commit heinous crimes. By protecting illegal criminals they not only put their law abiding citizens at risk, but they are putting out the message that they are above the law. As American citizens we are punnished for our crimes, but illegal criminals should be deported.

  • sooperimpoze

    Real Americans see this as a real problem. It’s festered for way too long. Illegals and their advocates have made quite the mess. Chaos must be turned to order. As a North Cali native it’s so sad to see the liberal progressive mess in So Cal bleed into the North.

    • AHRIMAN RISING

      It’s like the spread of gangrene. If the infected part is not cut out, the disease spreads until it kills the host. This is what is happening in our country now. I can understand how this could have started in South Cali., but how this took hold in the upper Midwest has got me baffled.

  • kassa1

    Good for this guy I give him many kudos as he works for the American people and that is his job to protect them not illegals

  • Mercy Mary

    Thank you Mr Gimenez, the mayor of Dade County for following the law at the same time protecting the American people. Mr President keep going you are doing a great job.

  • Gary Von Neida

    Go Donald!!! Now I just turned off the Local News in Palm Springs as the story was about the City(??) ??? thinking of becoming a sanctuary city—-UNBELIEVABLE!!! Uncanny
    then again the hotel industry here in love with illegal labor. I think an investigation over illegal voting here should commence post haste. NO FEDERAL FUNDS FOR PALM SPRINGS should They defy the Laws of Our Country.

  • Vivian Mcdorman

    i used to love living there but don’t think i would any more with the over run of illegals, time to crack down and send them back. make our country great again!!

  • APB

    DEFUND ALL OF THESE STATES AND CITIES AND HAVE AG SESSIONS INDICT, TRY AND CONVICT ANYONE WHO VIOLATES THE LAWS.
    It is a Felony for any illegal in the USA and anyone giving aide and comfort is also guilty of promoting violating the laws of the USA.
    Wow if we did that do you realize how many demorats in the house, senate, governs, legislatures would be decimated.
    Yes sir TRUMP do your stuff.
    And TRUMP stop feeling sorry for that bitch Hillary and her cheating huisband who was eyeing your wife like a wolf in heat and that kid of theirs.
    Try them all for High Treason and once convicted simple is no life in jail, deserted island or do what France did…off with their heads…and yes this includes Obama and Moochie Michael Michelle our 1st tarnny bitch.

    • AHRIMAN RISING

      APB,

      Enjoyed your comment, especially the ” decimated ” part. That term is taken from ancient Roman times, and refers to the practice used then of having a disgraced legion form ranks, and every tenth soldier made to kneel and were then executed by sword thrust down through the neck. To be able to restore that actual punishment now, and employ it amongst the Democrat members of our House and Senate, would definitely be worth televising. Imagine that instead of Lady GaGa as the Super Bowl halftime show.

  • randy jackson

    To continue the flow of free cash from DC, these sanctuary cities (one by-one) will cave.
    Glory hallelujah.

    Protecting illegals is a crime unto itself. It is called aiding and abetting.

    • Herb Branch

      Yes, it is facilitating a protection for illegal intruders and any additional crimes they commit. It is like being the driver in the getaway car or truck. You are not stopping the criminal or his activity, you are facilitating his escape from capture and incarceration, unless done with a gun to your head. That applies to all elected officials defying the immigration laws of the USA. In so doing they have violated their oath of office, which presumes upholding the Constitution of the US (and all laws duly and properly established under that Constitution).

        The biggest most confusing thing to me is the fact that people arrive here in the United States and then what!? They claim to love our country and just know that when they arrive their lives will instantly be changed and their hearts will be full of the great American dream however, they do nothing! (most, not all)
        I imagine myself in that situation and I know that first I’d want to learn the language rather than struggle along in daily life without understanding how to accomplish the simplest daily tasks! And second, I would have to learn the laws of the land! God forbid I break the law in my beautiful new nation! And, of course while learning the laws I would be led naturally to the next step – learning everything I can about the U.S. Government.
        While taking all of these steps after arriving in the
        U.S. I would simultaneously be working on gaining my Citizenship!
        So, this process that I describe seems so apparently vital that I can not understand why or how, for generations immigrants have arrived on U.S. soil and first: don’t want to do these things, and second: they’ve been allowed to ignore these necessary steps!!
        I don’t get it! Has it been a sort of progressive thing?
        Did we ever have a policy of informing new arrivals of what to do, how to do it or why they need to do these things!? Or had it been simply “welcome to America and good luck, the welfare line starts right over there” !!??
        If history does in fact repeat itself we need to come up with a new plan! And I pray that our President has the correct new plan, one that includes our protection as we as having morals and virtue and human compassion – you know, what Jesus would do.
        And of course, what a well ran two party Government would do.
        God Bless President Trump, the United States and mankind.

    Kinda like herding cattle get them together and push them where you want’em . That would be Mexico !!

  • Herb Branch

    President Trump is a successful business executive who is used to making practical decisions that actually work in real constructive projects. Why do such decisions work? They are based in the realities of normal human behavior. So, the contractors and companies he has in the past hired to do legitimate and proper work, meeting safety and structural requirements, and meeting budget and timeline standards.

    His buildings always pass code requirements, they don’t fall down, have constant equipment breakdowns, and they are “better than average!” What is there not to like? That is his lifelong behavior. Why change what works properly, satisfies his customers and always succeeds?

    Some people discover what makes the most practical sense in real life for most people. Some others, who may be unrealistic dreamers, seem to become Left-wing politicians chasing imagined Utopias (that will always fail). It has been long said and often said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different outcome (than what actually does result from such efforts).” President Donald Trump does not think that way. He knows what works and what is most likely to fail. He has a $10 billion net worth track record of success to prove his case!

    In comparison, former preisdent Obama had no real executive experience whatever prior to his 2008 election and elevation to the Presidency of the US. His management style and practical effect on American life proved that he had not been prepared for such authority or power. Nearly everything became more broken and dysfunctional.

    • AHRIMAN RISING

      Herb,

      As far as what you say about obama’s lack of managerial skills goes, I have to disagree. It wasn’t a lack of skill he brought to the table, but a desire to deliberately fuck this nation up. A plan that would have continued with the Clinton Presidency. The unforeseen election of Donald Trump threw a wrench into that, which is why ‘bamaboy tried to push the shit he did through before the transfer of power actually took place.

  • dk1xley

    Just recently it was revealed rhat Obama was going to allow illegals from Australia to enter the United States. Donald Trump has been President for nearly 2 weeks, and look at all the good he has done. God bless America!
