Spicer Reiterates White House Statement on Sanctuary Cities and Doesn’t Mince Words: Blood on Their Hands!

On Wednesday White House press secretary Sean Spicer reiterated a statement he’d made the day before that sanctuary cities “have the blood of dead Americans on their hands.”

A federal judge, sitting a few miles away from where Kate Steinly was killed by an illegal immigrant, struck down President Donald Trump’s executive order that would defund sanctuary jurisdictions that offer illegal immigrants a safe haven from federal authorities.

“Today, the rule of law suffered another blow, as an unelected judge unilaterally rewrote immigration policy for our Nation,” Spicer’s statement read. “This case is yet one more example of egregious overreach by a single, unelected district judge. Today’s ruling undermines faith in our legal system and raises serious questions about circuit shopping.”

The statement also indicated that the administration will take all legal avenues necessary to defend its order, including an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it expects to prevail.

Although Spicer’s words were more measured while appearing on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” his message was very much the same.

Fox News host Bill Hemmer asked Spicer on what grounds does he expect an appellate court to reverse the district court’s ruling.

“On the same grounds as the court ruled,” Spicer replied. “Ironically, the court agreed with the president’s interpretation of the authorities that he has given under U.S. Code. Where they differed is the interpretation of the intent of it which is outside of what they should be looking at. The U.S. Code makes it clear this president has the full authority to do what’s necessary to protect this country and to present grant money in a way he sees fit. The idea that any judge or any jurisdiction would not be wanting to help make sure that we can protect our citizens runs counter to what we should be looking for as citizens and laws supporting to do.”

He also indicated that an appeal is definitely in the works:

“I think as it goes through the Supreme Court, they will rule that the president was well within his legal right to do this,” Spicer added. “I think anybody that’s got a basic understanding of the Constitution and a basic reading of U.S. code would come to the same conclusion.”
