So-called “Sanctuary Cities” endanger American citizens by brazenly flouting federal immigration law.
Trump’s election provided hope for many Americans that this lawlessness will end.
But California just passed a new law that will obstruct the federal government’s immigration enforcement there in a dangerous way.
California just passed a law declaring they are a “sanctuary state,” prohibiting law enforcement from participating in any way with enforcement of federal immigration policies.
Fox News reports:
Lawmakers in California on Saturday passed “sanctuary state” legislation even as President Trump and his administration have vowed to crack down on jurisdictions that do not cooperate with federal immigration agents.
The bill approved early Saturday limits police cooperation with federal immigration authorities and is intended to bolster protections for illegal immigrants in the state.
But the acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Saturday warned of “tragic consequences,” saying the policy “will make California communities less safe.”
“By passing this bill, California politicians have chosen to prioritize politics over public safety,” Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE, said in a statement. “Disturbingly, the legislation serves to codify a dangerous policy that deliberately obstructs our country’s immigration laws and shelters serious criminal alien offenders.”
Homan said ICE wants to work with local law enforcement to prevent “dangerous criminal aliens” from being released back onto the streets.
The controversial legislation likely to be signed by Democrat Governor Jerry Brown.
Studies have shown that illegal aliens cost taxpayers approximately $113 billion annually in social services.
Another recent study found that the 251,000 illegal immigrants in federal, state, or local prisons have been cumulatively arrested 1.7 million times for almost 3 million offenses!
Most disturbingly, nearly 50% of those had been arrested at least once for violent crimes like murder, robbery, assault, sex offenses, or kidnapping.
But despite knowing all of that, California is going ahead with this dangerous policy.
Perhaps the real reason lies in the heart of the radical liberal agenda.
In 2016, California’s voter turnout was a whopping 75% — nearly 25% higher than the national average.
But reports also indicate immigration status was not checked against voter records.
With Hillary Clinton openly calling for the Electoral College to be abolished, California’s “Sanctuary State” status and refusal to check immigration status for federal elections could swing the popular vote permanently toward Democrat candidates.
