PHILADELPHIA (CBS) ó It will be a busy day for Donald Trump, especially if he sticks to the plan for his first day in office that he announced in Gettysburg just before the election.

He promised to take five immediate actions, one of which is intended to have a big impact on Philadelphia.

Item three on Donald Trumpís to-do list for today was: cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.

ďI mean, he canít. He canít just take money away. Thatís a legislative process,Ē said Mayor Jim Kenney.

Mayor Jim "Banana Nose" Kenney doesnít seem too worried, since the president doesnít actually have the power to simply cancel funding, and since the courts have ruled that Congress, which does have the power to disburse or withhold funds, cannot cut funding across the board. :rolleyes:

ďThere has to be a nexus shown between the sanctuary city condition and the money theyíre claiming to take away,Ē Kenney said. :rolleyes:

Kenney says Philadelphia will not change its policy of not cooperating with federal officials in detaining illegal immigrants for deportation. :mad: :mad: :mad:

He believes, contrary to Trumpís arguments, the policy has made Philadelphia safer by increasing trust in police. :confused:

There are some 40 major cities with the same policy. :mad:
