Philadelphia had emerged as one of the largest thorns in the Trump administration’s side. It wore its sanctuary reputation like a badge of honor, and its leaders, including Kenney and District Attorney Larry Krasner, continued to find ways to outmaneuver ICE’s enforcement efforts.
Like their sanctuary laws are not enough now they are ready to open supervised drug injection sites.
The nation’s first supervised drug injection site will open next week in South Philadelphia, the site’s operators said Tuesday within hours of a federal judge’s entering a final ruling that the proposed facility would not violate federal law.
The project was spearheaded by the nonprofit group Safehouse, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Other Sanctuary cities have also been contemplating opening such sites where addicts can shoot up heroin or other illegal drugs under medical supervision. Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is backing such a facility while San Francisco is also interested. Proponents argue that the sites are a form of “harm reduction” while opponents say they perpetuate addiction.
The District Attorney Larry Krasner tweeted:
Once again, for the folks who can’t see or hear past their Trumpian egos:
Harm reduction SAVES LIVES.

PEOPLE get involved ASAP! Go to your state representatives and do research before voting for them. This to me is common sense. These people don’t care about these addicts. They are getting funding from the state which is probably going in their pockets for other things!
