Politicians who support sanctuary cities are doing it for the voters they would gain by doing so, country musician Charlie Daniels wrote on CNS News.

"It is so obvious that what the politicians who support sanctuary for illegal aliens are doing: for one reason and one reason alone, they smell a voting base, and once it is installed, it would represent an unbeatable majority, keeping progressives in power ad infinitum," Daniels wrote.

"There is a price to be paid for such recklessness, a price of social upheaval," Daniels said, adding that a "community of criminals" will become emboldened and the sanctuary areas such as California would drain tax money away, "making it necessary to cut social services to people who won't understand why."

Daniels pointed out that he supports states' rights, "but there are certain laws that have to be universally obeyed by all if there is to be truly united country."

For example, Daniels said, segregation was a states' rights issue, and "states' rights can go extremely amuck."

"Will we live under a uniform set of laws that govern the major policies of all states or will certain states and cities be able to thumb their noses at the rest of us and go their own way?" Daniels wrote.

Texas and more than a dozen other states that have Republican governors expressed their support Monday for President Donald Trump's administration's lawsuit over California's so-called sanctuary laws that protect people who are in the U.S. illegally.
