Democrats are expressing outrage over the administration's push Monday to punish so-called "sanctuary cities" for blocking federal authorities from seizing illegal criminals for deportation.
"This administration not only is trying to bully law enforcement and make them ICE agents, but they're trying to bully immigrant families. This is not who we are as a country," declared Democratic Party chief Tom Perez.
But unstated is that former President Obama instituted similar policies almost a year ago when he bowed to House GOP pressure and had his Justice Department announce that some federal funding to the sanctuaries would be cut off if those jurisdictions didn't help Immigration and Customs Enforcement's enforcement and removal agents.
When the Obama administration set out to punish the cities, they were given a wide birth from Democrats who said little in opposition.
The Texas lawmaker who pressured for the change noted today that in his move, Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions was enforcing the Obama policies.
In a statement, Rep. John Culberson said:
"As the chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Subcommittee on Appropriations, I am committed to providing resources to our law enforcement officials and restoring the rule of law in our country. Last year, I persuaded Attorney General Loretta Lynch to change the Department of Justice's policy so that sanctuary jurisdictions are no longer eligible to receive federal law enforcement grants going forward.
"Today, Attorney General Sessions reaffirmed the administration's pledge that cities who receive our hard-earned tax dollars must be in compliance with federal immigration law, and I will continue to conduct the necessary oversight to ensure that jurisdictions who protect criminal illegal aliens do not receive federal law enforcement grant money."

it sounds like the Deep State is getting nervous. Politico’s Nahal Toosi and Andrew Restuccia report that some federal bureaucrats are “panicked” by articles in Breitbart News and other conservative sites shining a light on Obama administration holdovers.From Politico:
Conservative news outlets, including one with links to a top White House official, are singling out individual career government employees for criticism, suggesting in articles that certain staffers will not be sufficiently loyal to President Donald Trump by virtue of their work under former President Barack Obama.
The articles — which have appeared in Breitbart News, the Conservative Review and other outlets — have alarmed veteran officials in both parties as well as current executive branch staffers. They say the stories are adding to tensions between career staffers and political appointees as they begin to implement Trump’s agenda, and they worry that the stories could inspire Trump to try purging federal agencies of perceived enemies.
The claims posted on the conservative sites include allegations of anti-Israel and pro-Iran bias against staffers at institutions such as the State Department and the National Security Council. Breitbart News, whose former executive chairman Steve Bannon is now Trump’s chief strategist, has even published lists of workers that the president should fire.

MS-13 gang member Tommy Alvarado-Ventura, who was previously deported four times to El Salvador, was arrested Wednesday in Hempstead, Long Island after he allegedly sexually assaulted a 2-year-old girl, stabbed a young woman multiple times outside a bar, and then stabbed his girlfriend multiple times, according to the Nassau County Polic Department. Alvarado-Ventura also reportedly has a lengthy cirminal rap sheet, according to local news reports in New York.
"This is, in 28 years, probably the most heinous criminal act I've ever seen," Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter told CBS New York. "It really is nauseating."

Potential ‘smoking gun’ might prove Obama admin spied on Trump, FBI wiretapped Trump Tower In Search Of ‘Russian Mobster?
Federal agents spied on what they described as an “international money laundering, sports gambling and extortion ring” that operated out of unit 63A in Trump Tower between 2011 and 2013, ABC News reported Tuesday. The surveillance resulted in more than 30 indictments in April 2013.
The ultimate target of the FBI operation was Alimzhan Tursunovich Tokhtakhounov, also known as “Taiwanchik,” suspected of bringing into the US more than $50 million in profits from illegal gambling. The money came from Russia, Ukraine and other countries, and was laundered through shell companies and banks based in Cyprus, Mike Gaeta, the lead agent in the FBI probe, told ABC in 2014.
President Trump said he felt “vindicated somewhat” by the information revealed by Rep. Nunes, while his detractors point out that Nunes admitte the surveillance he saw was legal, but “troubling.”

Illinois will never forget former President Barack Obama, whose presidential library will be housed in Chicago. But exactly how to remember him has become a thorny issue.
On Tuesday, Illinois lawmakers rejected a proposal to make Aug. 4, Obama’s birthday, a legal holiday in the state.
The Illinois House ended up with 54 votes in favor of the proposal, six votes short of the number needed to send the measure to the state’s Senate.
