New York is one of many liberal states that protect illegal aliens. They say they are doing it to protect “innocent” residents. But a new report reveals what the leadership of New York has been really up to. They are endangering the lives of everyone in the Greater New York area.
It’s hard to believe that anyone in the United States would support sanctuary cities. This policy is openly defiant toward federal law. Liberal cities, states, and regions refuse to comply with federal authorities. In fact, they prohibit their police from communicating with ICE, should they arrest an illegal alien. Democrats claim that these laws are to protect illegal aliens who would otherwise be afraid to cooperate with local authorities.
Bull crap. Sanctuary laws are designed to protect criminals — often murderers, drug dealers, and rapists — from being deported. Democrats are shielding violent people from justice. How is that fair or kind to the millions of law-abiding Americans in those regions?
New York is one of the worst sanctuaries in the country. The governor, Andrew Cuomo, and sitting New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, frequently attack President Donald Trump’s immigration plan. Their constant attacks on our Commander in Chief prove their sanctuary policy has nothing to do with helping innocent lives. It’s always been about deliberately undermining the White House.
That’s the liberal motto in 2018: “If Trump’s for it, we’re against it!” Good game plan.
Now, a new report reveals that New York’s sanctuary has never been about keeping people safe. In fact, New York released over 4000 dangerous illegals back into the community over a period of months.
Over just three months this year, New York City, which acts as a “sanctuary city” for criminal illegal immigrants, released 440 “dangerous” offenders sought for deportation, and 10 percent went on to commit more crime, according to a new review.
The federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, in focusing on New York City, notorious for ignoring ICE demands for jailed illegals since 2014, said that from January to mid-April the city shrugged off 440 requests.
And, said ICE, “nearly 40 individuals who were released from custody, reoffended and were again arrested for crimes by local law enforcement officers.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
How can Democrats defend that kind of track record? For years, they’ve opposed Trump’s immigration plan, claiming it will hurt “honest” or “innocent” illegal aliens. But the people being arrested and released aren’t family-friendly folks. They are drug dealers and violent offenders. They are the very people that endanger families of all backgrounds.
But since when has the left ever cared about people? They are like babies, who do the opposite of what the president does. It’s never been about helping immigrant families for liberals. They only want to oppose Trump and his supporters, even if that means endangering their own residents.
On top of that, New York’s toxic policy puts federal law enforcement at risk.
ICE officials said that making arrests outside of jails greatly increases the danger chances to agents.
“The politics and rhetoric in this city are putting its own communities at an unnecessary risk,” said Scott Mechowski, an ICE official in New York.
“ICE has no choice but to continue to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, wasting valuable resources on criminal aliens who could be securely turned over to ICE custody at jails and prisons. However, ICE remains committed to its public safety mission and will continue to enforce our nation’s immigration laws,” he added. [Source: Washington Examiner]
This should come as no surprise. Democrats hate law and order. They especially despise police officers, the very people who risk their lives to keep New York safe from criminals. I can’t imagine they lose sleep over the fathers and mothers in ICE who are forced to take greater risks, thanks to their sanctuary policies.
