CA City to Use Taxpayer Money for Illegal Immigrants' Legal Defense
There's outrage over a new plan by the city of Sacramento to allocate up to $300,000 to set up a legal defense fund for illegal immigrants and refugees.
Mayor Darrell Steinberg emphasized that the plan, approved by the city council last week, is not intended to help criminals.
"This is not about protecting people who have been accused of or who have committed serious crime," he said.
The money would help those whose legal status may be challenged by the Trump administration.
Todd Starnes reacted on "Fox & Friends" this morning, explaining that about 10 percent of the capital city's population are undocumented immigrants.
He noted that a local Republican argued the money could instead be used to help homeless people who are in the country legally.
"It's the idea that there is one set of rules for law-abiding Americans and another set of rules for the illegal aliens," he said, arguing that people coming into a country illegally used to be called an "invasion."
