Officials In “Sanctuary Cities” Could Face Jail time Under the Trump Administration


By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

The United States’ Justice Department is contemplating criminally charging state and local officials who implement and or enforce policies that protect the rights of people classified as illegal immigrants.

This would mean that Mayors and governors and even local law enforcement who refuse to comply with federal immigration laws could face possible jail time.

Earlier this month, Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and customs enforcement said:

“We gotta take ( Sanctuary Cities) to court , and we gotta start charging some politicians with crimes”.

In post racial America, another African-American house of God was set on fire in St. Louis , the fifth church in ten days. This time the
New Life Missionary Baptist Church.

According to , St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson, the fire was set on the door and the damage to the building was minimal.

The last outbreak of arson attacks on black churches happened days after The Dylann Roof, Charleston AME Church massacre this summer , seven black churches were burned down by suspected white supremacists, also in ten days.

Pastor David Briggs told local fox2now:

“I have forgiven them. I don’t want the communities to be angry. I don’t want the churches to be angry, because it is in these moments that our character is tested”.

FROM THE GUTTER TO THE PROMISELAND:(POEM)

THE GUTTER IS WHERE I STAND, THE PROMISE LAND IS WHERE I STRIVE TO BE

WITH A MIND FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS

THAT I WANT TO MAKE REAL AND NOT JUST FANTASY

MY FOREFATHERS MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., MALCOLM X, KWAME NKRUMAH AND JERRY RAWLINGS, DECADES AGO FOUGHT FOR MY PEOPLE AND ME

BUT ALL I SEE IN THE STREETS IS THUGGERY AND GREED

EVEN IF I CAN’T SAVE ALL MY PEOPLE

I WILL MAKE SURE MY FOUR FATHERS DREAMS LIVE THROUGH ME

WE HAVE COME FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE, THE COLONIAL MASTER’S HOUSE, THE CRACKHOUSE AND NOW THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

AND STILL I GET PROFILED BY COPS AND SECURITY WHEN I LEAVE MY HOUSE

EVEN THOUGH I WORK SMART AND STUDY LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL SPARTAN, YET SOCIETY STILL LOOKS AT ME JUST LIKE ANOTHER TRAYVON MARTIN

JUST LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BLACK MAN TO SHOOT, WALKING WHILE BLACK I GUESS WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE!image
