Look Out, Sanctuary City Leaders! Homeland Security Prepares to Make Arrests...
The tougher the federal government is against illegals, the softer blue states become. Their mushy underbelly consists of sanctuary cities who refuse to enforce the law (see Oregon Judge Helps Illegal Criminal Escape ICE Agents. Yes, Really...). That's not going to fly anymore. Apparently Homeland Security is planning to dish out some ass kicking. Look out, leftist buttocks:
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department asked federal prosecutors ... if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect ... restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.
[U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom] Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.
It's about time. Sanctuary cities provide sanctuary to criminals. American people? Meh. No such solace for the taxpayers. For you flagrant immigration abusers, we say #TimesUp
Sanctuary cities wouldn't even be a thing in the first place if it weren't for these officials who're one step removed from knuckle-dragging primates. They're like Harambe, only with far less charm. More penchants for flinging innocent people into a zoo wall (see OF COURSE: Liberal Judge Appointed by Obama Blocks Trump's Sanctuary City Order). Remember, the entire illegal lovefest is happening without the consent of the people leftist politicians are supposed to be governing. And protecting. This is progressive compassion in action.
In fact, if Democrats truly want "A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future," they should consider walking themselves into a prison cell. Tsunami. Swarm of Africanized Killer Bees. Feminist film festival.
First step? Get rid of politicians protecting criminals. Second step? Get rid of the criminals. Certain politicians act as if enforcing immigration laws are more difficult than calculus. When really, it's easier than bedding a "strong" feminist, who'll accuse you of rape the next day because how dare you didn't do her right.
