De Blasio: NYC Will Resist Any Deportation Plans
“Anything we see as a threat to New Yorkers we will confront,” he insisted.
Trump's immigration plan is one of those perceived threats. The president-elect's proposal to subject illegal immigrants to deportation is apparently still part of the plan, according to his official website.
“We are not going to sacrifice a half million people who live among us,” he said. “We’re not going to tear families apart. We will do everything we know how to do to resist that.”The liberal New York mayor is one of several leaders who will undoubtedly try to resist the newly elected president and his policies, considering he made more than a few enemies during the 2016 campaign with his non-PC behavior.
Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, however, urged Americans to come together and support their new president.
