Trump: ‘Our cities should not be sanctuaries for criminals’

President Trump didn’t mince words when he doubled down on the importance of putting an end to America’s “sanctuary cities.”

“You know, the jail stuff is wonderful, but we have to pay for it, right? But these are killers. These are people that are sadists in many cases,” Trump told a cheering crowd on Friday.

Fox News reported that 4,000 MS-13 members were charged in 2017, and while prison is a good place to start for violent illegal alien criminals, President Trump would rather let their native countries pay for their incarcerations.

“We don’t want them. They are getting out of here. Our cities should not be sanctuaries for criminals. They should be sanctuaries for Americans.”

Trump highlighted his “America First” agenda and emphasized that keeping Americans safe should be top priority.

“It is our duty to serve the hardworking citizens of our country who raise our families, cherish our values, salute our flag, and make this land our home. These are the citizens you represent and these are the citizens you courageously protect. By the way, you are great people. You are incredible people. Just so you understand, you’re a great people doing an incredible job.”

President Trump’s comments come after an immigrant who came to America via “chain migration” tried to blow up innocent Americans near NYC’s Time Square on Monday.

Trump and many Republicans have called for an end to chain migration, that essentially welcomes family members of immigrants who made it to America, with zero-to-little vetting.

“All of us gathered here today share a common goal,” Trump said. “We want every child to be able to walk safely home from school and we want every mother and father to know that their children will be secure when they tuck them in at night. No family should have to worry about bullets flying through windows or gangs recruiting on street corners.”

The President also reiterated the urgent call to end America’s dangerous “immigrant lottery” system that randomly gives migrants from across the world U.S. citizenship.

“They have a lottery. You pick people. You think the country is giving us their best people? No. What kind of a system is that. They come in by a lottery. They give us their worst people, they put them in a bin, but in his hand when he is picking him is really the worst of the worst.

“Congratulations, you are going to the United States, okay. What a system, lottery system. We are calling for Congress to end chain migration, and to end the Visa lottery system and replace it with a merit-based system of immigration.”
