Thanks to a little noticed action of Texas congressman John Culberson taken last July, President-Elect Trump will able to cut off federal law enforcement funding to nine sanctuary cities, plus the entire state of California, immediately upon taking the oath of office.

Brenda Walker of Vdare explains:

Because of the foresight of a Texas Congressman, President Trump will be able to end certain funding to the largest sanctuary cities plus the entire state of California on his first day as President. Working quietly, Culberson convinced the existing Justice Department to certify those cities as non-compliant with federal law, thereby making them vulnerable to loss of money from Washington.

With great foresight, the congressman, as he explained to Eric Shawn of Fox News (video embedded below):

Ö using existing law and the power of the purse, I have seen to it that the top 10 sanctuary cities in America have already been certified as violating existing federal law and therefore everything is pre-positioned for these 10 cities ó including Chicago, New York, the entire state of California ó they will lose all their federal law enforcement money, if President Trump chooses to, the president can cut off their money at noon on January 20th of 2017. If they do not change their sanctuary policies and hand over criminal illegal aliens in their custody to be deported, their days of receiving federal law enforcement money are over.

SHAWN: Obviously this is something that the Obama administration has not agreed with.

CULBERSON: In fact I, as chairman of the subcommittee in charge of all the money for the Department of Justice, I quietly persuaded Attorney General Loretta Lynch to implement this new policy this past July seventh, so itís already done. I did it as subcommittee chairman using existing law and the influence of the power of the purse that the founding fathers so wisely entrusted to Congress. I did it quietly and and thoughtfully, and I didnít embarrass anybody so itís already done, pre-positioned.

SHAWN: Iím sorry ó pre-positioned but hasnít gone into action?

CULBERSON: Attorney General Lynch has already notified every city and state in the country that unless they cooperate 100 percent of the time with requests for immigration information about criminal aliens in local custody, then those local jurisdictions lose all their federal law enforcement money. Thatís already up on the Department of Justice website. It has been official policy since July seventh. I just didnít make any noise about it because the purpose of this election ó America wants us to get it done, to get the job done, so Iíve taken care of it the job is done and President Trump can now cut off their money at noon on January 20th because itís been policy.

so much of what Obama did was through EO's and Presidential Memoranda that the Obama legacy, [apart from ACA] will fall within a week!

....if DT holds true to his word.

Obama set up an entire web address to showcase the EO's and PM's !!!

I'll wait and see of course, but color me skeptical since this is totally out of character (i.e. acting in the American interest) for the boy president's (in)Justice Dept. In other words, there's gotta be a catch.

Note this has been "official policy" since July 7th. Has it been enforced? There's your catch.

Yup. They expected that they could point to the web site and pretend they were doing something about illegal aliens.

A different outcome was expected for the election
