Philly Mayor Wants To Block Giving Data On Illegals To ICE

Once again, a hardcore progressive (not an Obama supporter, though. He went for Hillary) shows exactly where they stand on law and order, to wit, placing politics over doing what is legal

The mayor of Philadelphia is seeking to rally other city leaders behind blocking federal immigration authorities from accessing city arrest records over concerns about the city’s agreement with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

The agreement to participate in ICE’s Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System, or PARS, will expire at the end of August unless the city renews it. Mayor Michael Nutter said he opposes the city’s PARS program because the computerized record system automatically releases information about victims and witnesses of crimes along with those arrested on criminal offenses.

Well, that’s a nice little excuse, there, Mike. If you really cared about, you would ask that the program be changed to not include that information

Nutter says he will support renewing the contract only if the program is changed to protect illegal immigrants who are victims of or witnesses to crimes.

Ah, the picture is a little clearer

On Thursday, Nutter made it clear he does not consider illegal immigrants who are residing in the city “criminals.”

“The immigration system does not work today,” he said in a speech at city hall. “We are not protecting criminals. We want criminals out of the city. At the same time, we want victims and witnesses who may have undocumented status whose paperwork may not be completely straight but they have not committed a crime in that particular matter – we want them to feel comfortable in coming forward and giving us information. Otherwise, the system will fall apart.”

20/20.

As far as the system falling apart, they aren’t part of the system. They are here (how many times must this be stressed to the lefties?) i-l-l-e-g-a-l-l-y. How about we simply get them out of the country, and then all those other concerns become moot?

    Conservatives/GOP is making a huge mistake continuing the road to blocking Amnesty and thus continuing to alienate a block of voters that normally vote about 25 percent for the GOP.

    With this continued action of RUN THE BUMS OUTTA THE COUNTRY mantra the GOP is relegating themselves to permanent minority party status because the Hispanic bloc of voters just passed Blacks as the largest minority voting block in the country and the GOP has already written off the Black vote.

    Now it seems the GOP wants to write off the Hispanic vote as well and even now the Democrats are painting us as racists for wanting people to obey the law and show no compassion.

    The answer to the immigration problem is not in running 10-15 million people out of the country for two reasons. 1. The democrats who have a majority WONT ALLOW IT. 2. Its economically unfeasible to expect the nation with ZERO WILLPOWER to even contemplate doing so.

    So we continue to refuse to come to the table because we demand the chicken cross the road and lay the egg while the democrats want the chicken to lay the egg first and then cross the road.

    of course BIG GOVERNMENT should be given everything that they want it only makes sense, right ?

    So you support local governments helping people that break the law?

    That makes sense to you?
