The Sanctuary City Precedent is the Gift That Keeps on Giving

The left started it and I have written more than once that conservatives would take up the precedent. Ever since leftwing areas of the country started declaring themselves sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants, it was obvious the right would respond. In Virginia, there has been a move to declare certain cities and counties sanctuaries from state backed anti-gun legislation. Enough actually declared themselves sanctuaries that it helped undermine some of the more radical anti-gun proposals in the Virginia legislature.

Now, in California, one city has declared itself a sanctuary city against the lockdown. The mayor of Atwater, CA, is refusing to shutter businesses and churches to comply with Governor Newsom’s lockdown orders. Progressives are enraged, but all the mayor and local community are doing is using progressive precedent. The left really has no reason but to cheer on the expansion of their precedents.
