DES MOINES, Iowa (April 12, 2018) – On Tuesday, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill into law in effect prohibiting so-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to help enforce some federal immigration laws.

I don’t always throw out or follow conspiracy theories, but what better way to get grassroots conservatives to support more and more centralized power than this? Run the borders like a sieve for years. Have a Republican president grant amnesty for millions. Continue running the borders like a sieve. Start putting the blame for the…
