(Mar. 20, 2018) — On Tuesday afternoon, The Daily Signal broadcasted live on Facebook a meeting among law-enforcers, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, members of Congress, and President Trump to discuss the self-declared “sanctuary” jurisdictions in states and cities aimed at protecting illegal aliens from arrest and/or deportation.

A link to the live feed as of 2:52 EDT is here:

The roundtable began at approximately 2:00 p.m. EDT and ended just before 3:00.

Also in attendance was DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who said that the “rule of law” is at stake in light of “lives being taken each day” because of illegal-alien activity throughout the country.

Sheriff Justin Smith told Trump that “your leadership is greatly appreciated.”

Mary Ann Mendoza, whose adult son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was killed by a vehicular accident caused by an intoxicated illegal alien, was present and recognized by Trump and others.

At 2:55, Trump pledged that “We’re gonna get there” and that “law and order and safety” would prevail, which had been one of his campaign promises.

Other media outlets also provided live coverage.

  1. The Democrats aren’t concerned about the illegal aliens any more than you and me. It is about using emotion while you break the Constitutional Law to get these people here for illegal and free votes on the Democratic ticket while illegally using taxpayer funds to get the votes. You are her either legally or illegally and all the theatrics aren’t going to change the laws, we have borders and citizenship and there are legal and illegal status as given by law. It is all a scam to get entitlement votes for cushy public trustee jobs for deadbeat leaders that have no talent to perform in those jobs but they know how to cash a paycheck. California and other states should arrest the public servants that are breaking the law and bring all states back to Constitutional law. These people are endangering the public while breaking the law for their own financial gain and criminal activity requires arrest and removal of these criminal trustees. Period

  2. I’d like to know why AG Sessions hasn’t simply enforced 8 USC 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens.
    (a) Criminal penalties
    (A) Any person who—
    (i) knowing that a person is an alien, brings to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien;
    (ii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law;
    (iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;
    (iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or
