Sanctuary Cities Only Shield Non-violent Illegal Immigrants? About That...
Mention anything negative about a sanctuary city and you might be labeled a hateful bigot racist who enjoys Justin Beiber (see Jeff Sessions Puts Sanctuary Cities on Blast: Follow the Law or Lose Money and DNC Chair Accuses Trump Of ‘Bullying’… For Asking Sanctuary Cities to Enforce the Law). Leftists like to claim the sanctuary cities only protect non-violent illegal immigrants. Well, pour a few extra shots of tequila because according to this new report, sanctuary cities are bastions of suck.
Sanctuary city proponents often say their policies limiting cooperation with federal immigration authorities don’t endanger public safety. As ICE’s latest weekly declined detainer report shows, however, many county and city law enforcement agencies regularly release criminal aliens who have been convicted of violent crimes, including domestic battery and sexual assault.
The report, which covers February 4-10, tallied 47 declined detainer requests from two dozen jurisdictions across the country.
New York City accounted for 12 of those rejections, far more than any other jurisdiction. Among those illegal aliens released by New York jails were several who had been charged or convicted of violent crimes.
If the left would just be the slightest bit intellectually honest about illegal immigration, people wouldn't think that Trump was rounding up any hombre who speaks Spanish. Hell, if the left was intellectually honest about illegals, Hillary might be president. One step further, if the left was intellectually honest about anything, they wouldn't be the left.
Three cheers to their intellectual dishonesty!
But more seriously, the people who live in "sanctuary cities" legally, we're talking ACTUAL AMERICANS, are being put at risk by their virtue signaling douchelords of city leaders. Here's giving a creepy wink to the Mayor of Seattle, who's suing the Trump Administration for enforcing immigration law. And often these liberals love the idea of being compassionate fluff bunnies, but not in their own neighborhoods. Like this story from Pelosi's town of San Francisco: HYPOCRISY ALERT: San Franciscans Love Illegal Immigration. Just Not in THEIR Neighborhood.
I stand with this sheriff who thinks such city leaders should be arrested. Massachusetts Sheriff: Arrest Sanctuary City Officials Who Disobey Federal Law!
