Time to Disenfranchise Sanctuary Cities and States

I’ve come to the conclusion Democrats have contempt for Americans and the republic in general.  Their advocacy for illegal aliens and sanctuary cities is a slap in the face to every law-abiding citizen in the country.  Any state that aides and abets this invasion should be sanctioned and the offending jurisdictions should be disenfranchised of congressional delegation and electoral college votes.

The 14th Amendment was established to protect American citizens of their rights and privileges.  There are people in this country actively undermining those rights and privileges by advocating an open borders policy.  This advocacy is a form of insurrection and rebellion.  Those advocates should be denied the privilege of office and vote.  Sections Two and Three have set a precedent for disenfranchisement.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Section 3.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

However, Section 5 states that Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.  

Maybe its time the states force their hand.
