ICE Steps Up! Targets 'Sanctuary Cities,' Arrests Hundreds of Illegals...
Bill de Blasio and his sanctuary city cronies have been blabbing about immigrants for a while now (constantly conflating illegal and legal immigrants). Mostly how they won't arrest the illegal variety (see NYC Won't Deport Illegal Thieves Because 'They're Breadwinners.' Yes, Really... and Thousands of Illegal Criminals Avoid Deportation. Because of Sanctuary Cities...). Recently one Oregon judge broadcast her deplorable character by helping an illegal criminal escape deportation. #Caring
Looks like ICE isn't a fan. They've started pushing back in an effort targeting sanctuary cities...
Making good on the president's campaign pledge to target illegal immigrants with criminal records or facing charges, Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced the arrest of 248 in just three states, including 50 previously deported.
The focus on Philadelphia, a so-called "sanctuary city" that has been refusing to comply with ICE demands that city law enforcement detains illegals for arrest.
"In the Philadelphia area, ICE arrested several at large criminal aliens in which the agency had issued detainers but the City of Philadelphia failed to honor them and released the individuals from custody - a situation that puts the public at unnecessary risk. ICE will continue to conduct targeted enforcement operations, whether local jurisdictions intend to cooperate with ICE or not," said ERO Philadelphia Acting Field Officer Director Jennifer Ritchey.
For context, all this was executed in under a month. Contrast the swiftness of Trump's ICE with Obama-era ICE (see ICE Brags About Arresting 101 Illegals... Out of 172,000). In just a few months, immigration enforcement has been upping their ass-kickery. To be fair, showing up Obama when it comes to national security is as easy as Amy Schumer.
Yes, I just slut-shamed Amy Schumer. It's okay, though, that's her schtick.
Donald Trump's wall could make more ICE arrests than Obama's ICE. But I'm going to move on before I start comparing their mothers and who's fatter.
Still, kudos to ICE for working efficiently despite having both the leftist public and government officials more turned against them than a fat-pride feminist facing spinach. Meanwhile trifling leftists are helping zero. Because if city officials were doing their jobs, ICE wouldn't have to come in and clean up their mess. Alas, here we are... Courtesy of tolerance.
