It’s “disgusting” that Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney would dance to celebrate a court decision allowing “dangerous criminals to roam free” in his city, the White House said Thursday.

On Wednesday, Kenney’s Chief of Staff Steve Preston tweeted video of the mayor dancing in celebration of a judge’s ruling that the Trump Administration could not deny the city federal funding as punishment for Philadelphia’s sanctuary city policies protecting illegal aliens from arrest and deportation.

“Many people in Philadelphia have been killed, raped or assaulted at the hands of criminal illegal aliens, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley declared in a statement responding to the video.

Mayor Kenney shouldn’t be celebrating a ruling that allows dangerous criminal illegal aliens to “prey on innocent families and children,” Gidley said:

"It’s disgusting the mayor would dance in celebration of a lawless decision that allows these dangerous criminals to roam free in Philadelphia communities and prey on innocent families and children.

“Democrats’ Sanctuary City policy is reckless, dangerous and protects criminals, not law abiding American citizens.”
