Rep Gutierrez Tells CNN Sanctuary Cities Are Actually ‘Fourth Amendment Cities’

Published by

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) told CNN’s Chris Cuomo this morning that so-called “Sanctuary Cities” are actually “Fourth Amendment Cities.”

“Here’s how I see it — yeah, they call them sanctuary cities. What I would say, Chris, is they’re Fourth Amendment cities.”

Watch courtesy of CNN:

“The DEA, the FBI, the ATF — they get warrants right? They go and pick people up.

“What [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] — which is another federal law enforcement agency — does is it wants to have people detained and wants the city of Chicago to go after people without any probable cause being submitted before the court and without a warrant.

“If you supply a warrant to the city of Chicago, we will absolutely honor that warrant. But you’ve got to get a warrant.”

Gutierrez is right. The Fourth Amendment says in language even a Republican should be able to understand,

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

This is not what the Trump administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions want to hear. Sessions actually said on Monday that the Constitution makes our nation less safe:

“Such policies cannot continue. They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the streets.”

According to Sessions, cities that stand by the United States Constitution cannot have federal money, certainly a bizarre and unreasonable stance for an administration to take, given the president’s vow to defend and support that Constitution.
