Letter body: 

LAWLESS CITY: To declare your city a sanctuary city is to declare your city a lawless city. Politicians will pick and choose what laws to enforce or ignore. Ignoring federal laws will have local consequences in increases in crimes and an influx of undesirable people looking for a hiding place. Even terrorists will seek a lawless sanctuary city.

The federal government has a responsibility to enforce our laws and that should include cutting funding to lawless sanctuary cities. It should then increase U.S. Marshals in those cities to enforce the law and keep us safe.
