One of Donald Trump’s key campaign promises was to crack down on ridiculously lenient “sanctuary cities,” which are breeding grounds for crime, rape, and drugs. Well, it looks like Trump is keeping his promises.
Just recently a major liberal sanctuary city fell to its knees, much to the chagrin of social justice warriors and #BLM activists all around the country. Conservatives have long understood that sanctuary cities are simply inviting crime into the USA, and they’re prioritizing foreigners over our very own people.
California, New York, and other liberal states have been filed with sanctuary cities ever since the Obama administration seized power. Unfortunately, they’ve let in tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, given them benefits, and sheltered them from the law—all using your own tax dollars.
Not anymore, though. A major city in Florida has just conceded defeat, marking a landmark shift in the country’s response to Donald Trump’s presidency. For months, sanctuary cities were resistant to complying with federal rules and regulations, but no more. Miami has fallen, and like the first domino it will set off a chain reaction for all the other liberal cities to follow suit.
Miami Herald reports:
For the first time since it began extending the detentions of local inmates sought for deportation, Miami-Dade County received word from Washington that it won’t be treated as a community giving “sanctuary” to immigration violators.
An Aug. 4 letter to Mayor Carlos Gimenez from the Justice Department said “there was no evidence” Miami-Dade was out of compliance with an immigration provision of a federal police grant worth about $480,000 this year to the county.
Shortly after President Donald Trump took office promising an immigration crackdown, Gimenez reversed a 2013 county policy and ordered Miami-Dade jails to begin honoring requests by immigration officers to extend the detentions of people in local custody who are also being sought for possible deportation.
Miami-Dade is the only large jurisdiction known to have made that kind of change, which the County Commission endorsed in February. As a result, it has been assumed Miami-Dade would be shielded from any loss of federal funds the Trump administration engineered as part of a broader effort to punish communities not cooperating on immigration detentions.
While conservatives across the nation have rejoiced, many of the county’s locals have labeled the Cuban-born mayor as a traitor. They claim that Miami has a long history of inviting new immigrants with open arms, and claim that the mayor is betraying their heritage.
Despite this, Miami-Dade leaders have stood strong—they have not redacted their statements nor their policies. These changes come in response to a letter that the Trump administration sent in April, warning about compliance with federal rules requiring cooperation with immigration officials.

The county responded to this letter with complete and utter transparency, setting an example for the other liberal cities across the nation. While this may not seem significant, it’s the first step in ending the liberal chokehold over this nation’s immigration policies.
Donald Trump must keep pressuring sanctuary cities to end their ridiculous anti-American policies, and so far it seems that he’s doing a great job. It won’t be long until San Diego, San Francisco, and even the liberal fortress of Los Angeles will have fallen. If Trump keeps up with this pace of winning, it won’t be long before we make America great again.
