If you missed it…perhaps one of the most impactful moments of CPAC last year was when Sheriff Clarke, a rising star among conservatives, stated that sanctuary cities are one of America’s most dangerous threats.
Clarke walked directly to the stage, and read from a copy of U.S. Code 1324, titled ‘Bringing in and harboring certain aliens’ arguing President Trump can use this law to bring them ALL down.
The law reads:
Any person…knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.
In addition, Clarke quoted another section of the code that puts sanctuary cities on the wrong side of the law:
…encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law;
“I’m telling you right now folks,” Clarke shouted, “you charge one mayor, one governor, one council president that adopts these laws, this stuff is going to end right away.”
