When ICE said it would be hard on sanctuary states, they weren’t joking. In a continued effort to ride the U.S. of illegal aliens, ICE targeted New Jersey. The state riddled with illegal sanctuaries just woke up to some startling news.
We might never fully understand why liberals want to protect illegal aliens. It has nothing to do with compassion. Illegal aliens are victims of crime and abuse. The best they can hope for are low-paying jobs and government welfare. A legal immigrant has a much better chance at a prosperous life. So, why do Democrats want to keep immigrants illegal, poor, and oppressed?
Probably because they want all of us poor and oppressed. The Democratic platform is about weakening everyday Americans, stripping us of jobs and opportunity. They want us burdened with taxes and unable to make ends meet — without the help of the government, of course.
Meanwhile, they get rich and fat off our backs.
As Democrats protect illegals, they are also protecting violent criminals. The illegal immigration situation in our country has been easily exploited by dangerous drug cartels. They smuggle drugs, weapons, and people into the United States. In many parts of the country, these criminals are safe from deportation, because the liberals in charge refuse to cooperate with the federal government.
ICE has made it clear that they will go especially hard on regions that violate U.S. law. It’s no surprise that they are conducting raids in every state with sanctuary cities. They recently stormed New Jersey, rounding up whatever illegals they could find.
And, what do you know, they apprehended quite a few. That includes child rapists, murderers, and criminals wanted by Interpol.
A MS-13 gang member with a warrant by Interpol was among 91 people, including some with violent criminal records, arrested over a five-day period in New Jersey by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency announced Monday.
The roundup last week included people from the age of 19 to 78 years old, with convictions for sexual assault on a minor, child abuse, domestic violence, aggravated assault, aggravated assault on law enforcement, endangering the welfare of a child, kidnapping, among other crimes.

These are the people Democrats want to keep in the United States. Think about it: if an American were to break the same laws, they’d go to jail (maybe for the rest of their life). But if an illegal alien rapes a child, murders his spouse, or robs a stranger, Democrats will protect them.
It’s hard to wrap your head around such insanity.
The real reason Democrats protect illegals is because Trump is trying to fix our broken system. He has made ending illegal immigration a major priority. Naturally, the petty cowards on the left have to oppose him. It doesn’t matter that his goals are good for our country (and for immigrants). The Democrats cannot be seen supporting the president. So, they work to undermine our laws and endanger our citizens, all to stick it to Trump.
It’s a pretty terrible strategy if you ask me.
Among those arrested include a Salvadoran national in the country illegally, who has an Interpol warrant for being a member of MS-13 and trafficking in firearms and narcotics.
Several other MS-13 gang members were arrested in the towns of Plainfield, Lindenwold, and South Brunswick, according to ICE.

Can the Democrats really say they want people like that in our country? They claim sanctuary laws are meant to protect illegals who would otherwise be afraid of speaking to the police. Sure they are. They never admit that these same policies allow drug traffickers and child abusers go free.
This latest sweep is a sign that things are changing. Under President Donald Trump, illegal aliens will be held accountable. Especially those that pose a serious threat to our national security. We can no longer turn a blind eye to drug cartels who run rampant in our communities.
ICE has to work extra hard to find these criminals. Our men and women in law enforcement are put at greater risk, all because Democrats oppose our laws. It makes you wonder why they’re still in office.
