On Wednesday, January 25, Donald Trump signed an executive order withholding Federal aid to “Sanctuary” cities such as Philadelphia. The next day, as Republicans met in Philadelphia to set their legislative agenda for the upcoming year, the people of Philadelphia, protesting in the shadow of William Penn atop City Hall, took to the streets to protest the President’s order, and The Democratic View as there (see video below). Philadelphia was founded by Quakers as a Sanctuary City. It will always be one. The President can’t unilaterally renege on the founding principles of this great country.
This is democracy. We, the People, decide.
