An African-American Trump supporter captured on video at a town hall meeting vehemently slammed sanctuary cities as a racist assault on the black community.
“Sanctuary cities are racist—black communities have been destroyed by illegal immigration,” the woman asserted, adding that the situation called for a “second civil rights movement.”
“I’m not going anywhere,” the woman said. “Sanctuary cities are racist, all the jobs are going to illegals….that is wrong, you’re not going to be allowed to get away with it….the black community has been destroyed by racist illegal immigration and we’re not gonna have it.”
“When my people do a crime, they get three strikes, your people do a crime, they get amnesty, they get benefits and they’re not paying taxes,” she added.
“Thank God for Trump, thank God for Sessions, and you should be ashamed of yourselves. How dare you?” the woman said, questioning why illegals were permitted to claim benefits for people living in Mexico, while members of her own family struggled in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
President Trump has threatened to cease federal funding of so-called “sanctuary cities” that prevent law enforcement from apprehending illegal aliens. Polls show that 56 percent of Hispanics support Trump’s policy of deporting criminal illegal aliens.
Trump’s pledge to reform inner cities and return jobs that illegals have taken away from African Americans contributed to his outperformance of previous Republican presidential candidates.
Trump bested Romney’s share of the black vote by 7 points, and also surpassed Romney with Latinos by an 8-point margin.
Polls found that 58.5 percent of Hispanic voters supported Trump’s immigration policy compared to 32.9 percent who backed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s policy.
