Fred Thompson recently posted his position on the illegal immigration issue. A short excerpt shows another reason to support him.
End Sanctuary Cities by cutting off discretionary federal grant funds as appropriate to any community that, by law, ordinance, executive order, or other formal policy directs its public officials not to comply with the provisions of 8 USC 1373 and 8 USC 1644, which prohibit any state or local government from restricting in any way communications with the Department of Homeland Security regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of an alien in the United States.Sanctuary cities and states that grant in-state tuition to illegals just drive me nuts. If my son decides to go to the University of Maryland, he will have to pay out-of-state fees. If we were illegals, he would not.
Deny discretionary Federal education grants as appropriate to public universities that violate federal law by offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens without also offering identical benefits to United States citizens, regardless of whether or not they live in the state, as required by 8 USC 1623.
Deny discretionary Federal grants as appropriate to states and local governments that violate federal law by offering public benefits to illegal aliens, as prohibited by 8 USC 1621(a).
That is insane. It's got to stop. That's another reason I'm with Fred.
