Liberal pro-sanctuary city mayors conducted a boycott of a scheduled meeting with President Trump, and were immediately called out for their stunt.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors saw over 100 mayors show up, while just a few – those who are so emotionally distraught over the Trump Administration’s effort to crackdown on illegal immigration – decided not to go.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was at the forefront of the boycott, a sad attempt at getting the far-left base to pay attention to their feeble efforts to stop the President.
“I will NOT be attending today’s meeting at the White House,” de Blasio proudly boasted, citing Trump’s supposed renewed “racist assault on our immigrant communities.”
I will NOT be attending today’s meeting at the White House after @realDonaldTrump’s Department of Justice decided to renew their racist assault on our immigrant communities. It doesn’t make us safer and it violates America’s core values.

Actually, comrade, cracking down on illegal immigration DOES make Americans safer and PROMOTES America’s core values of law and order.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu joined in on the boycott saying, “I cannot in good conscience as President of the United States Conference of Mayors go to a meeting under false pretenses.”
“Unfortunately, the Trump administration’s decision to threaten mayors and demonize immigrants yet again – and use cities as political props in the process – has made this meeting untenable,” he added.
The Democrat mayors are up in arms over the fact that the Department of Justice announced that it will subpoena up to 23 ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions if they don’t offer proof they are complying federal immigration law.

President Trump wasted no time in blasting those mayors who decided not to join the meeting, saying they, like their entire party, have chosen to side with illegal immigrants over law-abiding Americans.
“My administration is committed to protecting innocent Americans,” Trump told those in attendance, “and the mayors who choose to boycott this event put the needs of criminal illegal immigrants over law-abiding Americans.”
President Trump jokes about sanctuary city no-show mayors at a White House meeting, saying that "the mayors who chose to boycott this event have put the needs of illegal immigrants over those of law-abiding citizens."

That’s not a joke, NBC.
President Trump proceeded to call out sanctuary cities, defining them as “the best friend of gangs and cartels like MS-13.”
Don’t forget Kate Steinle’s murderer. You know, the way liberals who back sanctuary cities and/or states have. They were a best friend to him as well.
Still, as the President pointed out, most mayors showed up to the event.
“Let me tell you the vast majority of people showed up … Because the vast majority believe in safety of your cities,” he said.
As do the vast majority of Americans.
