During a town hall meeting in Cudahy, California, a black Trump supporter unleashed her anger on the concept of ‘sanctuary cities’ saying they’re “racist” and praising God for President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the unlawful practice.
The woman explained that jobs are being taken by illegal immigrants, leaving Americans in the black community out in the cold.
Watch her full statement below
Via the Conservative Tribune:
“Again, the black community has literally been destroyed by racist illegal immigration and we’re not going to have it. When my people do a crime, they get three strikes. Your people do a crime, they get amnesty, they get benefits and they’re not paying taxes,” she continued, as the crowd cheered.
“Thank God for Trump, thank God for Sessions — and you should be ashamed of yourselves, how dare you?” she said.
It wasn’t pure rage on her part either, as the woman cited IRS regulations which allow taxpayers to claim dependents in Mexico while she was unable to claim family members benefits for those who suffered in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Arguing with facts. Have to love it.
President Trump addressed these issues on the campaign trail, saying “one of the greatest betrayals” of the black community “has been the issue of immigration.”
“Illegal immigration violates the civil rights of African-Americans,” he said. “No group has been more economically-harmed by decades of illegal immigration than low-income African-American workers.”
Peter Kirsanow, a commissioner on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission agrees, having told a Senate panel in March that “Unequivocally, the wages and employment levels of black Americans are disproportionately adversely affected by illegal immigration.”
No wonder the black community, and particularly this woman, are so angry over ‘sanctuary city’ policies. Illegal actions and criminality should not be rewarded. Americans in every community should be.
