These 21 Sanctuary Cities Announce Plan To Turn Illegals Into Citizens…

Written by  TFPP Writer

Twenty-one cities, many of them sanctuary cities, have pledged to make 1 million immigrants American citizens by the end of 2017.

The “Naturalize NOW!” campaign, which includes liberal and progressive groups and elected officials, is aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from deportation under the Trump administration.

President Trump is not against legal immigration, but has promised to crack down on illegal residency in the U.S., especially of criminals.

The initiative heralded the mayors of the cities in joining the national effort.

The cities include: Atlanta, GA; Boston, MA; Cleveland, OH; Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Dayton, OH; Jersey City, NJ; Knoxville, TN; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; Miami-Dade County, FL; Montgomery County, MD; Paterson, NJ; Pittsburgh, PA; New York City, NY; Salt Lake County, UT; San Francisco, CA; Seattle; South Gate, CA & Tucson, AZ.

Many are sanctuary cities and counties.

Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and other progressive elected officials have joined in the path to citizenship effort.

“We celebrate our independence on July 4, and honor the values of freedom, justice, unity, and equality that make us who we are,” Garcetti said.

According to Naturalize NOW!, more immigrants than ever have applied for U.S. citizenship, a spike coming at a time when the Trump administration is warning all illegal immigrants about deportation.

Where are all the legal immigrants past and present that had to jump through hoops, paying thousands in fees and waiting YEARS to be allowed to immigrate to this country? They should be out there demonstrating and screaming bloody murder at these city officials that want to give a free pass to the millions of illegals! If anything they should demand refunds. Paterson NJ is a ghetto hellhole to begin with but full of illegals. The Federal gov't should charge these cities with contempt of the law and have the officials arrested and the cities under Federal control.

There's nothing wrong with LEGAL immigration, although we should thoroughly vet them. But what bothers me is it seems these cities which are WELL aware of the requirements for LEGAL immigrants to become citizens MUST be planning for ways to falsify documents so as to get ILLEGAL immigrants naturalized.

If so, we should deal very harshly with any officials participating in such a scheme, up to and including mayors and governors.

This headline is click bait. Cities cannot grant citizenship. That process is reserved to the Federal government.

You're right per Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, naturalization is the sole province of the federal government. I've the feeling these progressive and dare I say subversive cities are planning on finding ways to provide false documents to enable ILLEGAL residents obtain citizenship.

send them all back and the people who help them if they love them so much

The cities, counties and states do not have the power to naturalize. That is a federal power. An empty threat.

why do people not think? Usually it is the progressives that don't. There is a pathway to citizenship already,,,,if you come here legally and are not a criminal. Close the borders and deport all illegals
they are just criminals. Perhaps America should do what other countries do when others come over illegally. REMEMBER.,....the US of America had a Marine in mexico's prison system awhile back...REMEMBER>?????

These are the cities that ICE needs to hit fast and hard!!!

If the Feds begin raiding the fields, businesses and thousands of apartments occupied by illegal aliens it will make no difference how they try to hide. Find them, charge them and deport them.

So how much is this going to cost the working American people? 1 million people with probably more than 1/2 that do not learn to speak English, though they live here, can't find jobs, and if they do they are taking a job that an American needs, how many of these kids are going to be on free lunch, free medical, free phones. Why are so many wanting to provide for ILLEGAL immigrants but not willing to help our poorer cities or provide care for Americans that are living in poverty. We should not be spending money on any immigrants until every American has a descent living.

just like the minimum wage...this is another socialist agenda that does nothing but keep the democrat plantations in-check for future votes that promote large central government dependency, high unemployment...and a lower and weaker standards of what the law is.this also keeps the economy below 2%...and raises set asides and freebies that falsely benefits some...while the majority pay the bills....and now you know why I voted for trump and will help build the wall.....

Sadly though, the immigration office is very pro immigrant and is probably staffed by liberals. Example: A man is divorcing his non-citizen wife who spends more time in her own country than US (violation of temp. green card), only has one supporting affidavit (requires two) and the immigration office still bends over backwards trying to keep her here. Fortunately, she had already left and they couldn't contact her. Trump needs to clean out that swamp too.

Doesn't it take years and years to be a citizen? These people did not want to become citizens, so the states are forcing them. It doesn't make them patriotic. Do we want that ? Meanwhile, the government can kick them out. After all, the government is in charge of immigration, not the states. They can find out the release dates of the criminals, and be there.

They plan on doing it with YOUR TAX DOLLARS
Enough is Enough
DEPORT these PEOPLE
ASAP

SO DISGUSTED with these People
If they have enough MONIES to support Illegal Immigrants
YOUR TAX DOLLARS
Then, they need to cut the Taxes of Law Abiding citizens in their cities/towns/states
Also the federal Government needs to cut back on monies given to them and pay down the national debt.
More Liberal/Leftistl crap
DEPORT THESE PEOPLE
End DACA

I swear...the liberal mind just keeps degenerating into further lunacy...how far do they have to go, before the rest of the country decides they are a danger to their selves' and others...geez!

LOL - let these Liberal Democrap anti-American communist/socialist stooges attempt their little ploy. Last I heard in order to become a "citizen" in this country it had to be authorized by the Federal Government - they and they alone are the only ones who can issue a "green card" - so, no matter what these states do or say, unless the Feds grant them citizenship - it ain't gonna happen.

If these Libtards are so hell fired intent on violating our laws and our Constitution, then when they round up all these illegals - throw all the Libtards in with them and revoke their citizenship as American citizens as well. I feel that should be more than apropos!

Sanctuary cities need to get their act going. How many criminals will they let in too. Do they even know which ones are criminals?

Gonna have to tighten up the laws. If you come here illegally-- YOU CAN NEVER, EVER be a citizen! And.. If found here illegally you should have all assets seized/forfeited.. There must be consequences.. These 2 are basic common sense. If found in the act of a further crime I am fine with a death penalty. There must be consequences.. The aforementioned are entirely in the control of the perpetrator. And we are being mocked and ridiculed for mere common sense, while theft of our Nation is viewed as sport.
There might be a need for 'aiding and abetting of illegals' laws as well with similar consequences..

There they go again...Why do these clowns in these cities think they are given immigration law jurisdiction as though they were their won country...Maybe the law should put it's foot down and promise the perps of this scam they will go to prison for impersonating the Federal Government....?

These mayors are unfit for office as they disrespect the LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES.

Americans do not oppose LEGAL immigration. We do oppose violating OUR LAWS, OUR SOVEREIGNTY, and invading OUR COUNTRY. Respect OUR laws. Our laws are the most lenient in the world regarding LEGAL IMMIGRATION.

Trump is exactly right in REFUSING ALL WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, ETC. FOR ALL IMMIGRANTS, LEGAL AND ILLEGAL FOR 5 YEARS.

OUR social systems were set up for Americans who paid into the system and later hit a rough spot. They are to be a 'hand up' NOT a handout or a way of life.

IMO: it's sort of like a marriage ceremony performed by Manny down at the bar. With Joey the drunk standing in as best man - and that girl "round-heels Sue" as the maid of honor..
