Poll: Majority Do Not Want To Live In A Sanctuary City

There should be a law that every Democrat who supports illegal aliens must live in a sanctuary city

(The Blaze) The majority of Americans oppose having their city declared a “sanctuary city” to protect illegal immigrants, a new poll reveals.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, only 35 percent of likely U.S. voters favor living in a “sanctuary city,” while 52 percent said they oppose their local officials declaring their town a “sanctuary city,” nearly a 20 point spread. Fourteen percent told Rasmussen they are undecided.

Most people also said that “sanctuary cities” are “less safe,” according to the survey. Forty percent said they are “less safe,” while only 17 percent said they are “more safe.” Thirty-five percent of respondents said the safety level is about the same.

As Rasmussen points out, this poll is based on the issue in Rockville, Maryland, where two immigrants, for which at least one is known to be an illegal, brutally raped a 14 year old girl in a school bathroom (a story which has been virtually embargoed by the major media). The city itself is considering whether to declare itself a sanctuary city in the midst of this.

I wonder how many Democrats want to live in sanctuary cities? Good news, the poll answers the question

Respondents were highly divided among partisan lines. Republicans were mostly likely to say they feared living in “sanctuary city” while a “plurality” of Democrats — 48 percent — said they favor it.

So, even 52% of Democrats do not want to live in conditions their beliefs create. Surprise!

Meanwhile, California is holding hearings on whether to become a sanctuary state, SB-54. One woman speaks out

“Our beautiful children have been sacrificed at the altar of elected officials and non-profits as we can see how many non-profits are making money off of our dead children,” she continued.  “I have it on good authority, our side wins! Even with all that that you have, our side wins, because you have weeping mothers not only in California but throughout the United States now. It’s not here, it’s everywhere now.”

“Stop trying to blur the difference between illegal and legal,” she thundered.  “There’s a big difference. We’re Americans – we live the American culture and we have the American spirit. We don’t steal, we don’t lie and we don’t take other people’s things.”

Not only read the whole thing, watch and listen to the video. Like everything with liberals, there is an unstated ulterior goal when it comes to illegals. They don’t care about them. They want more voters, at the expense of legal citizens.

Latest Moonbat Idea: Trained Witnesses To Hinder ICE Operations

This sounds like a super dandy idea (via Jazz Shaw at Hot Air)

(SF Gate)  Earlier this month, a network of organizations working under the umbrella group Bay Resistance trained hundreds of volunteers on how to legally observe, so they know how to witness and amass evidence when ICE officers are conducting enforcement efforts.

Between that and other trainings, more than 1,000 San Francisco residents — along with 200 in San Mateo County and 30 in Oakland — have learned how to gather information that can help deportees seek justice. One of the trainers is Blanca Vazquez, the lead organizer with Immigrant Youth Coalition, an organization for undocumented queer and trans youth. Vazquez helps train people to become legal observers and works as a dispatcher for San Francisco’s new rapid-response hotline, where residents can report local ICE activity.

The system works as such: When a call comes in, the dispatchers send a legal observer to the scene to check the validity of the report and to witness what’s going on. Observers are told to stay out of the way and not intervene, even if ICE officers become aggressive with potential detainees.

“The sole purpose of legal observers is to document,” Vazquez says. “That documentation, whether it’s notes, video, or photos, can be used as evidence in court if people are arrested or detained.”

The majority of the people who are being targeted by ICE are convicted felons, with, as I’ve pointed out numerous times, crimes such as murder, assault, robbery, burglary, rape, and sexual assault against a minor, among others. These are the people these liberals are attempting to defend. They really want to defend child molesters.

Leftists keep telling us that we should focus on the bad ones, the criminal ones. Well, that’s who ICE is targeting. Sure, some who aren’t bad ones are swept up, but, hey, they are still violating federal law by being in the country unlawfully.

These are people who (Liberals) fully concede are in the country illegally. By attempting to in any way thwart the activities of ICE in deportation proceedings you are not only assisting criminals but are breaking the law yourself.

This is no sort of activism or “justice” league being trained up here. It’s a criminal organization hiding in plain sight. If you are conspiring to impede the proper actions of law enforcement you should be talking to a good lawyer for yourself, not the person being deported.

Of course, then the same activists will start yammering about “fascism” and stuff. Even though they are breaking the law themselves. It’s all about the feels with these characters.

Things Blamed On ‘Climate Change’: Brexit And Venezuela Invading Columbia

It’s utterly amazing that a trace gas that is just over 400 parts per million in the atmosphere can do so darned much

Climate change helped cause Brexit, says Al Gore

Brexit was caused in part by climate change, former US Vice-President Al Gore has said, warning that extreme weather is creating political instability “the world will find extremely difficult to deal with”.

Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities.

His argument, which he made after taking a fossil fueled trip from the United States to London, is that Hotcoldwetdry caused the Syrian civil war, which caused people to leave the area, which led them to Europe, which caused strife, which caused Brexit. This is the kind of circular blamestorming argument cult leaders make.

Venezuela Blames Climate Change after Its Troops Invade Colombia

Venezuela tried to downplay its illegal entry of troops into Colombia this week by claiming the constantly changing direction of a river near the border accidentally led the soldiers beyond their jurisdiction.

Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez said the Venezuelan soldiers entered Colombia’s eastern department of Arauca as a result of the Arauca River, which she said is constantly changing its flow and direction.

It’s pretty much an deflectionary excuse, because, reading the rest of the article, this has happened before, and it appears that the Venezuelan soldiers were taunting the Colombians. But, hey, it’s convenient, eh, Goracle?

NC Group Forces Charlotte School System To Pull Crossdressing Book

If you remember, the who HB2 “bathroom bill” issue originated due to the Charlotte city council passing an ordinance requiring business owners to allow the gender confused to use whichever bathroom they want. Now, the school system tried to pull another fast one

(NY Times) The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools system in North Carolina was going to use a book about a boy who likes to wear dresses as part of a first-grade lesson on what to do when someone is bullied.

But school administrators this week pulled the book, “Jacob’s New Dress,” after critics complained about its content.

The book came under fire from the North Carolina Values Coalition, a conservative group that promotes “pro-family positions,” according to its website.

Tami Fitzgerald, the executive director of the coalition, said that no notice was given to parents about the book and that it was sprung on teachers only days before it was supposed to be used.

“I read the book online,” she said. “It’s clearly geared to young children. The book is meant as a tool of indoctrination to normalize transgender behavior. I think a lot of parents would object to that.”

She said a teacher tipped off the coalition, which emailed its members, issued a news release and was organizing a petition when the school system reversed course.

“We believe the purpose of first grade is to teach writing, reading and math and not to teach boys to wear dresses,” she said.

One would think reading, writing, and math would be the purpose of first grade, but, the Social Justice Warrior element (read: nutjobs) in education are attempting to use schools more and more for their wackadoodle ideas more and more.

The NY Times has a very leftist view in describing the book, that it’s about how Jacob likes to wear dresses, so his parents let him wear a dress to school, and how oh so supportive his parents and teachers are in the face of another student complaining about Jacob wearing girls’ clothes. And includes silly stuff from the book’s writers. Let’s head to the Daily Caller

In the book, a schoolboy, Jacob, wants to wear a pink dress. Instead of teaching their son that dresses are for girls, Jacob’s parents decide to sacrifice their son’s mental health; they even make the boy a new dress and send him to school adorned in the garb of the opposite sex.

Leftists just can’t help pushing their insanity on Everyone Else.

Surprise: ICE Is Targeting Illegals In Sanctuary Cities

Where better to go to detain those unlawfully present in the United States than places where lots of illegals hang out because the cities coddle them?

Source: ICE is targeting ‘sanctuary cities’ with raids

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been targeting so-called “sanctuary cities” with increased enforcement operations in an effort to pressure those jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration agents, a senior US immigration official with direct knowledge of ongoing ICE actions told CNN.

A sanctuary city is a broad term applied to states, cities and/or counties that have policies in place designed to limit cooperation or involvement in the enforcement of federal immigration operations. More than 100 US jurisdictions — among them New York, Los Angeles and Chicago — identify as such.

High-ranking ICE officials have discussed in internal meetings carrying out more raids on those locations, said the source.

Ah, the old unknown anonymous source. Even if true, sanctuary cities are a great place to go to detain illegals for deportation, especially for the more criminal element amongst illegals, because those with criminal offenses are confident that nothing will happen to them.

This week, a federal judge in Texas seems to have confirmed that tactic. US Magistrate Judge Andrew Austin revealed during an immigration hearing Monday that a mid-February raid in the Austin metro area was done in retaliation for a local sheriff’s recent decision to limit her department’s cooperation with ICE.

“There’s been questions about whether Austin is being targeted. We had a briefing…. that we could expect a big operation, agents coming in from out of town. There was going to be a specific operation, and it was at least related to us in that meeting that it was a result of the sheriff’s new policy that this was going to happen,” Austin says in audio of the proceedings provided by the court.

Well, if the cities and counties did their jobs in upholding the law instead of protecting those who are unlawfully present in the country, this would not be necessary.

Officials in several sanctuary cities began complaining that they may be getting intentionally targeted after a series of raids around the country in February resulted in almost 700 arrests, but ICE described these operations as routine and said they were planned during the previous administration.

The senior immigration official pointed out that the raids overwhelmingly took place in sanctuary jurisdictions.

Again, this is where a goodly chunk of illegals reside, because they are protected. They know if they are picked up that the city/county won’t report them to ICE. They’ll be let go. And who is being released back? Illegals with crimes on their resumes like arson, homicide, assault, rape, sexual assault on a child, identity theft, and so much more. These are the people sanctuary cities are protecting, and these are the people CNN and the sanctuary cities are complaining that ICE is targeting.

Warmists Need Safe Spaces To Protect Them From ‘Climate Change’ Mental Danger

Man up, buttercup. Put your big boy/girl pants on

The Problem With Climate Catastrophizing

Climate change may or may not bear responsibility for the flood on last night’s news, but without question it has created a flood of despair. Climate researchers and activists, according to a 2015 Esquire feature, “When the End of Human Civilization is Your Day Job,” suffer from depression and PTSD-like symptoms. In a poll on his Twitter feed, meteorologist and writer Eric Holthaus found that nearly half of 416 respondents felt “emotionally overwhelmed, at least occasionally, because of news about climate change.”

For just such feelings, a Salt Lake City support group provides “a safe space for confronting” what it calls “climate grief.”

The rest of the article is too involved in the nuttbaggery of the Cult of Climastrology and how they are beyond unhinged and making themselves paranoid nutjobs. If you cannot read it at the above link, Climate Depot has it reproduced in full.
