"NYPD reportedly defies sanctuary city status..."

"...after alerting ICE on illegal immigrants' court dates"
The NYPD’s process of verifying warrants against a defendant includes contacting relevant law enforcement agencies, including ICE, which alerts agents to an illegal immigrant’s upcoming court date, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

New York City has vowed to only alert immigration officials if an illegal immigrant is accused of a violent crime.
Meanwhile in Congress...
Despite President Trump’s request for more than $1 billion to fund the Mexican border wall this year, GOP leaders are expected to exclude the money in the spending bill being prepared to keep the government open beyond April 28.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says the choice is pragmatic and the money will come later.
Is the GOP going wobbly again?

Yes.

As expected.

Trump has to enforce it or his Presidency is over.

If he loses the support of the anti-immigrant nationalistic right he will lose everything.

Only Ryan.

Also the fact he's already bought and paid for.

If, as Breitbart contends, there's an IdiotCare replacement with the blessing of the Freedom Caucus ready to go, Ryan's going to look very silly.

PS My guess is New York's finest is about fed up with Mayor Wilhelm and is taking Sessions at his word.

He's already taking bids and never forget most of the Cabinet departments involved have baskets of discretionary funding.

Sorry ed but there is a disturbing trend going on. The Syria bombing. The move to intervene in
Korea. The failure to end Obamacare. The blocking of spending for the Wall.

Trump needs to be true to his nationalistic base. If he does not he will lose everything.

Ryan needs to check with his boss, Tom Donohue, for instructions.

Sanctuary cities (coming to a large crooked state near you soon) only extend sanctuary so far. They totally turn inconvenient people over to ICE and who's going to check them on that?

Jeez $1 Billion is like a dime to one of us and Ryan can't squeeze out of something else? They Beltway crowd is trying to run out the clock on Trump.

Every day that goes by he is losing momentum. His mandate is dissipating. He needs to get back on track in a big way.

I am not ed. I know when President Trump is going wrong. Dropping Bannon and the nationalist will spell his doom.

We're doomed.

Can Ryan be deported?

IdiotCare was backing out of a bad bill, and blocking the spending is Ryan's doing and, as Ampersan noted, Ryan needs to check with his boss, Tom Donohue, for instructions.

As for Korea, we haven't "intervened". The Norks are making all kinds of noises about detonating a nucular weapon and Trump does what any American President would do (last I looked, no shots have been fired).

As I said, there's plenty in discretionary funds in Cabinet department budgets and Trump can us that.

PS Good one, Rabel.

McMasters is calling for at the very least 10,000 troops in Syria. As Steve Bannon has said they want to start another Iraq war.
