Stopping The Trump Terror – Take Their Money Away (VIDEO)

California is currently studying ways to fight against President Donald Trump’s most recent push to defund sanctuary cities, according to Occupy Democrats. The definition of a sanctuary city is:

“A municipality that has adopted a policy of protecting illegal immigrants by not prosecuting them for violating federal immigration laws in the country in which they are now living.”

Cities like New York and Los Angeles might do this because they recognize the diverse talents that immigrants bring to the country, and the economic benefits of their workforce and taxes.

A study from the Atlantic in 2014 noted that California is one of the few states that receives a negative return on investment when comparing the benefits it receives from the federal government versus the taxes it pays.

However, Donald Trump wants to bully cities into ousting illegal immigrants as soon as possible, and cities not as large or prosperous as L.A. or New York might not be able to survive without federal funding if he decides to pull it over this issue.

However, as long as it is able, experts in California have threatened to stop paying taxes if Donald Trump nixes federal funding over sanctuary city status. The bold move is indicative of two things:

  1. Cities’ commitment to not rolling over while the Trump Administration attempts to bulldoze protection for immigrants; and
  2. Donald Trump will eventually be isolated from everyone and everything in the world.

He has already isolated himself from almost every other nation on earth that is just plain disgusted with us right now, and soon he will isolate himself from even the states that he governs. Willie Brown, a former speaker of the state Assembly said in an interview for KPIX 5’s Sunday Morning News:

“California could very well become an organized non-payer. They could recommend non-compliance with the federal tax code.”

Other states may begin to take California’s lead and rebel, not only against a president who enacts harmful and bigoted policies, but one who admits that he himself does not pay taxes. Hitting them where it hurts — their pocketbooks — just might work.
