NYC and L.A. Mayors Learn Nothing, Promise to Continue as Sanctuary Cities

There was a lot of talk a few years back about the Republicans becoming a "regionalized party". Democrats were supposed to take over the map, relegating the GOP to little patches of red. Here is the county electoral map from Tuesday:


Both Republican and Democrat elites can make up whatever reasons they want for what got that map so red, but the disparity between what the public is told America believes about illegal immigration and what America actually believes has a lot to do with it.

De Blasio and Garcetti are obviously preserving their own provincial political futures, but they are painting themselves into corners on opposite ends of the country to do so. These corners may not become red any time in the near future, but then nobody was betting on Pennsylvania to go Republican in the election at this time last week.
