SANCTUARY CITIES SLAP EVERY LAWFUL AMERICAN IN THE FACE

not just cities that are providing a safe haven for illegal alien lawbreakers
that include aliens who have been deported, murderers, robbers, thieves,
rapists, pimps, con artists, drug smugglers, human trafficking perpetrators,
terrorists and others of a deplorable nature, and yes, some non-criminal
individuals and families. There are several states, as well as multiple
counties in almost every state that defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) with their sanctuary policies. About 300 jurisdictions in America
have been identified by ICE as having a policy, or are non-cooperative
when it comes to immigration enforcement. Many cities, like Seattle,
Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York are in open
defiance of federal immigration law, with their respective mayors publicly
thumbing their collective noses at immigration authorities.
sources we learned that from January 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015 these
sanctuary jurisdictions rejected more than 17,000 detainers for illegal
immigrants, 11,800 of which had a prior criminal history. A detainer
is issued by ICE to gain custody of specific criminal aliens for deportation,
being held in another law enforcement jurisdiction. These illegal alien
criminals are free to commit their crimes with impunity, thanks to illegal
sanctuary policies. Who are their victims ..... lawful American citizens?
illegal immigration problem is massive. One in four inmates in American
prisons are illegal immigrants. In 2014, 36.7% of all felony convictions
were illegal immigrants. Regarding the cost to taxpayers, the Heritage
Foundation reports that: "in 2010, the average unlawful
immigrant household received around $24,721 in government benefits and
services while paying some $10,334 in taxes. This generated an average
annual fiscal deficit (benefits received minus taxes paid)
of around $14,387 per household. This cost was borne by U.S. taxpayers.
Amnesty would provide unlawful households with access to over 80 means-tested
welfare programs, Obamacare, Social Security, and Medicare. The fiscal
deficit for each household would soar."
illegal immigrants have less than a 10-year education and are among
the lowest wage earners, thereby contributing the least amount to taxes,
compared to the benefits they consume.
states, counties and cities exacerbate these statistics by protecting
criminals, undesirables and those illegal immigrants that have violated
our laws by coming here illegally, raising the total cost to taxpayers
for illegal immigration by billions of dollars.
open defiance of their mandated duties and swearing to uphold the law
of the land, an official of the Department of Justice of the Obama Administration
confirmed in 2010 that the agency would not take any action against
cities, or other sanctuary jurisdictions, that defy the "Illegal
Immigration and Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996."(Pub. Law 104-208) True to their word, they haven't taken any
is an unwritten policy on the Democrat side of the federal government
who purposely look the other way on illegal immigration and are not
concerned that our borders are as porous as Swiss cheese. The rationale
is that these illegal immigrants will eventually receive legal status
and will vote Democrat because most of them come from socialist countries,
thereby securing perpetual Democrat control of power in America. The
Democrats compassion rationale is hollow and only results in more illegal
USC 1227) describes in detail who is a deportable person and the
list is lengthy.
one of the provisions in the law "(2)(A)(i)(I)(II) "General
Crimes" states that:
Crimes of moral turpitude
alien who — (I) is convicted of a crime involving
moral turpitude committed within five years (or 10 years in the case
of an alien provided lawful permanent resident status under section
1255(j) of this title) after the date of admission, and (II)
is convicted of a crime for which a sentence of one year or longer may
be imposed, is deportable.
Turpitude is a very broad term but has been defined in greater detail
by court decisions and “refers generally to conduct
that shocks the public conscience as being inherently base, vile, or
depraved, contrary to the rules of morality and the duties owed between
man and man, either one's fellow man, or society in general"
and includes murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter,
rape, spousal abuse, child abuse, incest, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated
assault, mayhem, animal fighting, theft, fraud, and conspiracy, or attempting
to, or acting as an accessory to a crime.
every sanctuary city, county and state in America there resides thousands
of illegal immigrants who are guilty of moral turpitude under federal
immigration law, as defined, and as such are deportable. In a flagrant,
criminally negligent act, ICE released 86,288 illegal immigrant criminals
into the general population from 2013 to 2015, according to ICE Director
Sarah Saldana in written testimony to Congress. Those persons in our
government, who made the decision to release known criminals, violent
or otherwise, should be in jail themselves.
illegal immigrant criminals are released into the general population,
or come here illegally, where do you think they go? They migrate to
sanctuary cities, counties and states of course, where the criminals
will be shielded from federal prosecution by the governor of the state,
or mayor, the city or county council, prosecuting attorneys, judges
and law enforcement, by specific written or verbal sanctuary policies.
Kate Steinle was a victim of and killed by one of those illegal alien
criminals who had been deported 5 times and ended up in San Francisco,
a sanctuary city.
issues what are called detainers for illegal immigrants that are subject
to deportation. Most if not all illegal immigrants are subject to deportation
under 8 USC 1227, whether criminal or not. Under this statute, deportable
persons are defined as:
alien who is present in the United States in violation of this chapter
or any other law of the United States, or whose non-immigrant visa (or
other documentation authorizing admission into the United States as
a non-immigrant) has been revoked under section 1201(i) of this title,
can safely conclude that anyone who has entered the U. S. illegally
is deportable, unless they are seeking asylum for reasons covered under
the law, subject to judicial review.
seems to have gone unnoticed here is that the leaders of these sanctuary
states, counties and cities are guilty of harboring fugitives from justice
and potential terrorists by their policies, written or verbal and are
"principals" under 18 USC Section 2, making them
personally liable for their actions. Federal law 18 USC 1071 covers
this harboring of fugitives by sanctuary cities wherein it states:
harbors or conceals any person for whose arrest a warrant or process
has been issued under the provisions of any law of the United States,
so as to prevent his discovery and arrest, after notice or knowledge
of the fact that a warrant or process has been issued for the apprehension
of such person, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more
than one year, or both; except that if the warrant or process issued
on a charge of felony, or after conviction of such person of any offense,
the punishment shall be a fine under this title, or imprisonment for
not more than five years, or both."
the "harboring" statute, 18 USC 1071, a "process"
would be construed as an ICE detainer. It is logical to assume that
sanctuary city leaders, or local law enforcement, have been issued those
detainers, or had knowledge of them and flagrantly ignored them. In
fact an ICE "detainer" was issued to the Sheriff of San Francisco
County for Kate Steinle's killer, which said Sheriff promptly released
the illegal immigrant criminal, purposely ignoring the ICE detainer.
Therefore, the Sheriff directly violated 18 USC 1071. The San Francisco
city and county leaders indirectly violated the statute by establishing
the policy. Each of them should be tried for criminally violating federal
law and held personally liable for their complicity in Kate Steinle's
death. San Francisco's sanctuary city policy was a direct contributing
factor in her death.
Kate Steinle murder by an illegal immigrant criminal is just the tip
of the proverbial iceberg. A website was established to memorialize
those Americans who were killed by illegal aliens HERE.
It is not a complete list and it doesn't include those tens of thousands
of Americans that were or will be severely injured or killed by other
illegal aliens. The list is long and grows by the day because the federal
government has allowed millions of illegal aliens to enter America,
criminal and otherwise, with little or no penalty, thereby creating
a magnate for further illegal immigration. As a result of government's
negligence to properly manage our immigration system and our borders,
there are somewhere between 11,000,000 to 30,000,000 illegal aliens
residing in America (no one knows for sure). Hundreds of thousands of
those illegal aliens are dangerous criminals and potential terrorists,
preying on lawful Americans. Any sanctuary policy that shields
illegal aliens, is a direct threat to national security.
is possible that a Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) under Senator Jeff
Sessions, the incoming U. S. Attorney General, will reverse the Obama
Administration policy of coddling illegal aliens and start a vigorous
enforcement of immigration law inside America and on her borders. Part
of this vigorous enforcement should be a full frontal attack on sanctuary
states, counties and cities by cutting off federal funding and bringing
to trial those state, county and city leaders that harbor illegal criminals
in violation of 18 USC 1071.
we aren't waiting for the Department of Justice, or the Congress, to
take on sanctuary states, counties and cities. We will be filing a formal
Complaint and Request For Investigation with the U. S. Attorney in multiple
districts, against these state, county and city leaders, under 18 USC
1071, with a copy forwarded to the incoming U. S. Attorney General,
Jeff Sessions. This could take us several days to reach all of the relevant
U. S. Attorneys. We have posted a sample of our Complaint on our website
HERE. Our single Complaint, by itself, may not trigger
an investigation, much less indictments. However, if hundreds of our
readers used our sample Complaint and Request for Investigation and
filed their own Complaint with specific U. S. Attorneys and the U. S.
Attorney General, it is more likely that an investigation would commence
into this open, festering, illegal alien wound that slaps every law
abiding American in the face.
American citizen is required to obey the law or face penalties, fines
and even imprisonment for violation of the law, depending on the severity
of the violation. If you screw up your income taxes, or make a mistake,
or don't pay what they think you owe them, or don't file, the IRS will
be all over you and it could take years to get them off your back. Why
isn't ICE just as relentless on illegal immigrants as the IRS is on
fact, why are sanctuary jurisdictions thumbing their noses at federal
immigration law while the rest of us must obey the law? Why do not their
sanctuary actions fly in the face of justice, fairness, equity and the
law? Why are illegal aliens, especially criminal ones, above the law
and are entitled to sanctuary, or a status superior to lawful Americans?
Why is it OK for lawful Americans, hapless victims of criminal and non-criminal
illegal aliens due to government negligence, be forced to pay for those
same illegal aliens that are sucking up government benefits and committing
the crimes? Why indeed!
a nation of laws, if laws aren't enforced equally across the board,
then there is no law, only injustice and eventually anarchy and chaos.
are the people of America going to rise up against sanctuary jurisdictions?
When will they revolt against government-instituted injustices and crimes
committed by illegal immigrants? If you are as incensed as
we are against sanctuary states, counties and cities in America and
you truly want to make a difference, please join with us in filing your
own Complaint and Request for Investigation with multiple U. S. Attorney's
offices and the U. S. Attorney General, as we are doing. All it will
cost you are a few stamps, some paper, some envelopes and some of your
time. Everything you need is on our "SANCTUARY"
