See Samantha Bee Blast Trump's Threat to Defund Sanctuary Cities

"That's right liberals, states' rights! They're not just for racists anymore"

Samantha Bee struck back at Donald Trump's executive order threatening to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities on 'Full Frontal.'

Samantha Bee struck down President Trump's executive order to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities on Wednesday's Full Frontal.

Sanctuary cities, where undocumented immigrants can live without fear of sudden deportation, are not the anarchic, crime-infested wastelands Fox News talking heads make them out to be, Bee said. Rather, their crime rates tend to be lower than nonsanctuary cities, thanks in part to the compassionate approach adopted by many mayors, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. "Before he was tragically swallowed by a xenophobic howler monkey," said Bee. 

Bee noted that numerous mayors of sanctuary cities are thwarting Trump's executive order by promising to continue protecting undocumented immigrants. "That's right liberals, states' rights!" Bee exclaimed. "They're not just for racists anymore."
