Jindal: Sanctuary City Mayors Should Be Arrested
The Louisiana governor and 2016 presidential hopeful continues his anti-immigrant posture.
During an interview with Boston Herald Radio, Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal said that mayors of “sanctuary cities” that don’t report undocumented immigrants to the federal government should be arrested.
“Should a mayor of a sanctuary city who ignores federal law be arrested?” Jindal was asked after he referred to those mayors as “partners-in-crime.”
“Absolutely,” he responded. “I would hold them as an accomplice, make them criminally culpable.”
“I’d also make them civilly liable so that families, victim’s families could sue,” he continued. “Especially if the prosecutors aren’t taking action or the mayor’s not changing their ways, I’d allow the families to go to court to sue them civilly as well to recover damages.”
