California Vows Not To Pay Taxes If Trump Cuts Federal Funding To Sanctuary Cities

One of Donald Trump’s first executive order was to cut off funding to sanctuary cities. These are cities that offer a safe home for immigrants without the fear of deportation. This is considered by National legal experts unconstitutional. It violates the 10th amendment which states that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the United States Constitution. All remaining powers are reserved for the states or the people.

Trump’s attempt to take power from the state and ultimately run his dictatorship will not happen, as states like California will not allow it.

California has decided to fight back and will stop paying taxes if Trump cuts federal funding over sanctuary cities. San Francisco’s CBS affiliate reports that the federal government only spends 78 cents in California for every tax dollar sent from that state to Washington.

“California could very well become an organized non-payer,” said Willie Brown, Jr, a former speaker of the state Assembly in an interview recorded Friday for KPIX 5’s Sunday morning news. “They could recommend non-compliance with the federal tax code.”

Two of California’s largest recipient cities San Francisco and Los Angeles together receive over $500 million dollars in federal funding annually, but California is one of the few states that pay more taxes than the federal funding they receive.

This means bad news for Washington D.C. as it will limit Trump’s capacity to spend money in order to harm America as federal coffers suffer.
