New York City is a sanctuary city that defies U.S. immigration enforcement laws, protects illegal immigrants from deportation, and limits local cooperation with federal enforcement officers.

Exactly. But what would they have to say that's worth reading if they don't cherry pick and then twist a topic?


What is the conflict????

After  reading all the posts and also reading what the Ca, Governor wanst  to do. I am not sure that I happen to agree with what it being said.

Ifeels to me that many now are acting like Trump.

Not using common sense, and going oberboard.   We all need to recognize the Rule of Law and not divert from it.

We have blame Trump for doing that , and now we seem to fall on the same premise?

Be careful. Democrats. that may backfire.

There is the fact that we all need health care. but we also need to recognize that people that are not in this country legally should not have the same benefits as the immigrants that do.

 If we go overboard on this concept we wil be doing what Trump is doing now. NOt   applying  the Rule of Law. 

A country witn no laws disregarding or Party will not be a successful country. 
There is the inmediate need to fix the immigration issue. and that most include all of the undocumented people in this country now.

 the ones that have overstayed their visas, the stufdents that have dropped out., the workerr with the work visas that have expired, and the people in the southern border that want to come it to work and other to scape violence.

That should take precedent before we start with thrwoing the baby and the bassinet. we need to keep calm, and think.

De Blasio announced several proposals which seem to follow the way Norway structures its society and the only thing the right sees is that the occasional undocumented immigrant might get some help too? 

 

He said they would provide health care to anyone who showed up.  How is that different from what happens in emergency rooms? 

 

Conservatives are a weird bunch.

Where does this money come from? I hope N. Y. does not plan to take any more from employers.

   Does not a State have a right to serve it's own constitutents?    Without the whining and fearmongering - access to affordable healthcare for everything  is a very good thing.      What some won't want is anything that appears to threaten their own self-worth, because if everyone has access to affordable healthcare, that is one less thing that they can say, See, I'm better than "those people".   

     Reminder:  an undocumented immigrant is a world class journalist, they win awards and sell millions of books...so the scream ( from Breitbart) makes the assumption that all undocumented immigrants are poor, disheveled individuals...   The screamers are pushing an stereotype that is invalid.   

PRO-LIFE is Affordable Healthcare for ALL .

Well  it seems that  Trump's  inability to govern, is now emboldening    very liberal concepts.  and I don't think that is  the right approach to the Health Care Issue.

 We need to become intelligent and put thru a real comprehensive immigration policies. and stop the anger and lack of common sense that is growing out of frustration for this Administration.

We all need to keep our heads in  our place and see how we can assure that government really governs. 

There is no doubt that Trumps needs to go. one way or another. Things are getting too much out of hand and that will never be  good for the country.
