Why Are You Funding Sanctuary Cities?The problems associated with illegal immigration are not confined to the border states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, which is why Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Penn.), has unveiled the Mobilization Against Sanctuary Cities (MASC) Act that would crack down on more than 100 cities whose elected officials have willfully chosen to not enforce by withholding all federal funding from them as long as their sanctuary policies are in place.
Rep. Barletta has asked the Congressional Research Service to compile a comprehensive list of sanctuary cities and calculate how many federal taxpayer dollars each receives.
"My intention is to face illegal immigration head on. My bill makes sure that sanctuary cities no longer get federal money as long as federal officials ignore federal law."

The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons reports that in Stockton, Calif., in 2003, 70 percent of the 2,300 infants born in San Joaquin General Hospital's maternity ward were infants whose parents are illegal immigrants.

Now they account for more than 50 percent.
In New York, "The closure of St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan sparks fear about the impact on the remaining hospitals; hospital employees and advocates in Queens say they continue to struggle with the effects of three hospital closures. The overcrowding problem, they say, is exacerbated by a growing immigrant population," according to the Wall Street Journal.
