Best-Selling Author Todd Starnes: Liberal
Mayors to Let Illegals Run Wild in the Streets
Starnes New Book, ‘The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great
Again’ is a Common-Sense Guide for Americans to Reclaim the Culture
NEW YORK—The debate over sanctuary cities continues, with many questioning how the leaders of these cities could possibly choose to protect those in the country illegally over their own residents.
Among them is Fox News commentator and best-selling author Todd Starnes, author of the new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again” (www.DeplorablesBook.com). In his column today, Starnes details how the nation’s “sanctuary” mayors have American blood on their hands.
“In 2015, Kate Steinle was gunned down by an illegal alien in San Francisco—a sanctuary city,” Starnes wrote. “The man charged with her murder was a seven-time felon who had been deported five times. Five times. There was an immigration hold on the suspect, meaning the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement wanted to come get him and ship him out of the country. But San Francisco authorities set the man free. Just a few months later, Steinle was dead.
“Steinle’s blood is not only on the hands of her killer, it’s also on the hands of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee,” Starnes continued. “It’s beyond belief that liberal mayors are allowing illegal aliens to run wild in the streets of American cities, terrorizing law-abiding citizens.”
Therefore, Starnes added, Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vow to punish sanctuary cities is welcome news. On Monday, he announced plans to withhold from any city that harbors illegals billions in federal funding. “Not only do these policies endanger lives of every American, just last May, the Department of Justice inspector general found that these policies also violate federal law,” Sessions said. “The president has rightly said disregard for law must end.”
Added Starnes, “I believe the Trump Administration should go a step further. If an illegal commits a felony crime in a sanctuary city—the mayor of that city should also face criminal charges—from harboring fugitives to aiding and abetting.”
Mayor Lee defiantly declared Monday on Twitter that “#SanctuaryCities are safer, more productive, healthier places to live.”
Tell that to Kate Steinle’s family.
Starnes is inviting those who want to join the fight to restore traditional American values to read his new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again,” which is jam-packed with Starnes’ signature wit, as well as common sense and practical advice, outlining the obvious war on faith in business, education, media and even the military.
Published by Frontline (an imprint of Charisma House), “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again” has hit several best-seller lists, including the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s (ECPA) Christian Bestsellers and Christian Non-Fiction Bestsellers lists for March 2017, as well as lists from USA Today, Publishers Weekly and the Conservative Book Club. The book has also been ranked as a best-seller by Amazon. In addition, hundreds are attending Starnes’ book signings at churches and bookstores across the nation.
Starnes has been at Fox News Radio for more than a decade. His daily commentary is heard on hundreds of radio stations, and his syndicated column is read by millions. He is a frequent contributor on many Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network programs. Social science researcher George Barna also included Starnes as one of the top media influencers for Evangelical Christians in the 2016 presidential election.
