Hillary Clinton’s VP Called Out For Saying Sanctuary Cities Don’t Exist
Shockingly, CNN’s Chris Cuomo called out Hillary Clinton’s VP Tim Kaine for claiming sanctuary cities are a “phantom.”
KAINE: When Donald Trump kind of goes after these phantom sanctuary cities and talks about how bad they are, basically what he’s going after is police chiefs. And I trust police chiefs in terms of knowing what should be done to keep their communities safer and police departments and mayors a lot more than I trust Donald Trump.
CUOMO: But why do you say phantom? You know that there are places that refuse to cooperate with ICE [Immigrations and Customs Enforcement] and they have their assembly of different reasons for why they do it, but sanctuary cities are real. They exist. They’re not phantom. And a lot of people believe that you have those people being rewarded for not working hand in hand with ICE.
Kaine’s comments come on the heel of Donald Trump speaking of “Angel Moms” during his immigration speech.
TRUMP: I’m going to ask all of the Angel Moms to come join me on the stage right now. These are amazing women. These are amazing people.
The Angel Moms weren’t well received by some “journalists.”
Tweet: Trump surrounded on Phoenix stage by “Angel Moms” who say their kids were murdered by illegal immigrants. This is pretty much a hate rally.
Tweet: What the hell is going on? These Trump brought on stage are like a hate group.
Tweet: This is incitement against immigrants. Painting them all as potential murders. Cut the feed.
Kaine’s denial isn’t surprising given how hard Harry Reid fought to stop a bill that would defund sanctuary cities.
TED CRUZ: I would note, it is sad that the Democratic leader chooses to stand with violent criminal illegal aliens instead of the American citizens. But even sadder is that he impugns legal immigrants. And for the Democratic leader to cynically suggest that somehow immigrants should be lumped into the same bucket with murderers and rapists demonstrates the cynicism of the modern Democratic party. The Democratic leader suggested that locking up aggravated felons is somehow disrespectful to immigrants. With all respect, as the son of an immigrant, I believe that immigrants that come here legally who aren’t criminals should be treated markedly different from murderers and rapists and yet the Democratic Party chooses to stand with the murderers and rapists and violent criminals.
