New York Is Super Proud To Be A Sanctuary City

You’re probably thinking “wait, NYC is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens? I thought Democrats told us that they didn’t really exist? Even Hillary’s running mate, Tim Kaine, said they were a myth. It’s not like there’s a map (which is incomplete). Or a list (more complete). Or that many Progressive (nice fascist) cities like San Francisco declare openly that they’re sanctuary cities. Now we have the Editorial Board of the NY Times

Proud to Be a Sanctuary City

If the next president’s immigration agenda includes a pitched battle over “sanctuary” cities, a term Donald Trump uses with disgust, the proper response from places like New York will be: Bring it on.

The word “sanctuary” as Mr. Trump deploys it — a place where immigrant criminals run amok, shielded from the long arm of federal law — is grossly misleading, because cities with “sanctuary” policies cannot obstruct federal enforcement and do not try to. Instead, they do what they can to welcome and support immigrants, including the unauthorized, and choose not to participate in deportation crackdowns they see as unjust, self-defeating and harmful to public safety.

In other words, the 2nd sentence contradicts the 1st, as they work to obstruct federal laws and enforcement, typically by refusing to not even bother checking immigration status, and, if they do, not bothering to either alert federal authorities and/or simply releasing them.

New York City wears that kind of “sanctuary” label proudly. As California considers bold steps to shield its residents from a possible Trump immigration assault, the New York City Council has already built its own strong web of protections. A groundbreaking City Council program has provided free legal representation for children who fled violence in Central America and arrived unaccompanied at the border. Of 1,265 cases accepted under the program, 72 children were granted asylum and 55 obtained lawful permanent residency. The Council has expanded health and legal services in immigrant communities. And it passed bills to keep federal immigration agents out of the Rikers Island jails, and to forbid city police and corrections officers from detaining suspects for deportation, unless there is a judge’s warrant.

Here’s a bold solution: The GOP Congress should remove federal funding for sanctuary cities for law enforcement, and President Trump should invite all illegals to move to the sanctuary cities. He should say “if you’re there, we won’t come after you.” Federal law enforcement should refuse to investigate crimes in the sanctuary cities. And, as crime explodes, as the city budgets explode, as urban blight increases, as urban poverty increases, as the cities become run down and trash ridden, moving towards Mogadishu status, we’ll all laugh and laugh and laugh.

    States and cities defy the feds all the time. Look at the myriad marijuana laws contradictory to the federal controlled substances act.

    Enforcement of the law is the variable. The feds, states, cities, courts, prosecutors and police officers all use discretion in the application of our laws, regarding whom to arrest and prosecute. While typically only the wealthy and famous “get away with murder”, for many other crimes court officers exhibit considerable discretion.

    The speed limit along interstates is posted as 70 mph, but you can usually drive through police radar at 74 mph and not get stopped. Monitoring is so slack you can drive 200 miles at 80 mph and have little fear of being captured. 100s of millions of Americans violate the speed limits daily in the US, amounting to billions of violations each year, yet governments do little. Speed kills! Even with all the liberal mandated safety features on autos and highways, 32,675 lost their lives in auto accidents in 2014 (down from the peak 54,589 in 1972; the rate per 100,000 has dropped from 29.4 in 1937 to 10.3 in 2014). Why have speed limits if so few obey them?

    There were only 12,253 intentional homicides in the US total in 2013. How many were committed by undocumented immigrants, Breitbart’s lies notwithstanding, there are no good numbers, but it is surely less than the 32,675 killed in auto accidents. In fact the homicide rate plummeted as the number of undocumented soared!

    We pick and choose our legal battles. New conservatives consider undocumented workers to be a grave threat to our republic, especially if the workers are not exactly white, hence the calls for deporting the lawbreakers! But not even the megalomaniac liar, Trump, has the stomach to keep his campaign promises regarding undocumented immigrants. He fed his easily manipulated voters a load of crap.

    Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in.

    Their punishment was well-deserved, as demonstrated by Obama and Clinton. Full of excuses and blaming everyone except themselves, their closing acts proved it is time for them to go.

    If one homicide was committed by an illegal immigrant it would not have been if they were not here. But the real number is in the thousands and you don’t care. Leftists have no heart. All you racists care about is changing America from a white country to a white minority. You don’t care if it’s by illegal immigration or down right murder of whites as long as it happens. You are murderous anti white racists and anti American traitors.

    Out of the 32k killed in car accidents 6,000 are killed by unlicensed, uninsured illegal aliens drinking and driving. They too would be alive if you traitors would care even a little about the lives of your countrymen and their children. Hundreds, perhaps thousands killed every year by illegals and you don’t care you heartless thug. Some day when someone you love is murdered or run over then tell us about how wonderful sanctuary cities are. You don’t seem to care one iota about any one else’s children.

    You are in effect saying that you would rather see all our families murdered by illegals than end sanctuary cities which shield them and send them back where they belong. Thanks for caring. I’m sure Kate Steinle thanks you too. Ya filthy animal.

  4. Jeffery says:

    Rev StinkyButt,

    More lies. But it’s what you do. You don’t care about the thousands of men, women and children killed every year by white American citizens! Most murders in America are committed by christians yet you support christianity!

    So your problem with immigrants is that they are killing Americans. Yeah, right. Hahahahaha

    Some 20,000 depressed Americans kill themselves with easily available guns each year and you don’t care. You’re just a vile slophopper.

    No, the Congress should eliminate all federal funding for ‘sanctuary’ cities, campuses, etc.

    Simply cutting federal law enforcement funds leaves those sanctuary cities able to cope with the loss, but cutting all federal funding leaves huge holes in their budgets. For example, Chicago receives about $29 million in law enforcement funds from the feds, but about $1 billion in total, 10% of the city’s budget.

    And what do you hold to be the threshold of acceptability?

    I assume, at least for the sake of argument, that if all 12,253 murders were committed by illegal immigrants, you would agree that they should all be deported. If 0 of the 12,253 were committed by the illegals, you would state that there were no crimes to justify deportation. Therefore, there should be some number, somewhere between the two extremes, that would meet whatever threshold you would set. Is it 100? How ’bout 1,000? 7,234? You must have an idea!

  7. gitarcarver says:

    Illegal immigrants with criminal records, the deportation priority of President-elect Trump, total at least 820,000, with most having felony and serious misdemeanor convictions, according to a new report.

    Some estimates have suggested up to two million criminal illegals, but the numbers cited by the Center for Immigration Studies still show an enormous group larger than the populations of four states, Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont or Wyoming.

    The immigration think tank cited numbers from the Urban Institute. That group downplayed the crimes and also questioned deporting any of those who are parents of children who might get left behind.

    And these are just the reported crimes. It is a widely held belief (one that the liberals hold) that crimes against illegal immigrants (including those committed by other illegal immigrants) go unreported.

    Once again, we see how people like Jeffery really don’t care about people at all and only want to see people become victims.

    Who says I “don’t care about” these people, you? Who the hell are you? Nobody.
    Murders by Americans, OF ANY COLOR you racist pig, and by ANY RELIGION you filthy bigot are another topic because keeping ILLEGALS out have nothing to do with it, stooopid.

    So your problem with immigrants is that they are killing Americans. Yeah, right. Hahahahaha

    No, once again you manipulate words and lie. My problem with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS is that they are killing Americans. Our friends, neighbors and families you idiot. And you go “Hahahaha”, you think killing Americans is funny? You really are a pathetic demented clown.

    Some 20,000 depressed Americans kill themselves with easily available guns each year and you don’t care. You’re just a vile slophopper.

    Ince more for those of you who are so stooopid they don’t get it: Americans killing themselves has nothing to do with the ones MURDERED my ILLEGALS! Man, are you really that stooopid?

    Rev Stinky,

    You try to hide your inherent bigotry behind a shield of false concern, but your typings reveal your actual motives. You’re perfect for Der Trumpenfuhrer. Hahahahaha

    Your objection to homicides and even accidental deaths is very selective you old white supremacist, you.

    We find your lack of humanity pathetic, not funny.

  10. gitarcarver says:

    Says the guy who admitted to rape and abuses his wife.

    Get back to us when you have some moral authority Jeffery. As it is, you are just getting crazier and crazier.

  11. Jeffery says:

    Says the crappercleaner, who admitted to child molestation and has restraining orders. Sure, sure, you claim you’ve paid your debt to society but some acts are just so heinous… so vile, so sociopathic.

    Hahahahaha. I prove you wrong and a liar and your typical response is: “Racist”. Hahahaha. You are such a loser. Pathetic.

    These just in:

    Stinky actually looses electoral votes/ Mohammad and Fisal murder 12 in German Christmas market.

    Jeffery blames white Christians, Obama goes golfing and they both wonder how such a wonderful candidate as Stinky lost. They just can’t figure it out. Duhhhhh.

    I was just reviewing how many state legislatures and governors the demorats lost this election. We really kicked their asses. This is Obama’s greatest legacy to America: a full rebuttal for Stinky and her party. No wonder the brainwashed and duped foot soldiers like Jeffery are going publicly insane.

    Wait till Stinky’s trial. Boy oh boy! Can’t wait to see her do the perp walk. Ya think she’ll pee herself?

  14. Jeffery says:

    Rev Stinky,

    The only thing you’ve proven is that you’re a white supremacist. Your opinions are proof of nothing.

  15. gitarcarver says:

    Sure, sure, you claim you’ve paid your debt to society but some acts are just so heinous… so vile, so sociopathic.

    It really is hysterical watching you lash out in response to your own words and actions.

    Please get help.

  16. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Exactly how am I a white supremacist? It’s more easily proven you’re an anti white racist and a bigot. Just one of your racist rants:

    Many white Americans think that life is good for African-Americans ’cause Oprah and Obama, but when African-Americans beg to differ, many white Americans feel put upon. When privilege is pointed out to the privileged, they feel discriminated against. It’s even worse for The Deplorables, those whites left behind by shifts in the economy, looking for someone to blame for the plight. Enter The Don with his anti-African-American background, his anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and anti-Mexican rhetoric.

    Anybody who you don’t like politically is a racist when in all reality it is YOU who looks at everything by color. Pig!

  17. Jeffery says:

    gitarcarver,

    For the last time, no you are not forgiven for your heinous acts. Regardless of how old you claimed he said he was, the fact is, he was underage. You claimed he consented, but a 15 yr old cannot consent, even in the old Confederacy.

    Surely you don’t want to rehash the transcripts from the sting operation.

    What on earth are you going on and on about, Jeffery? Have you something to say about gitarcarver? Or is this another of your smear campaigns designed to hurt an innocent person?

    Still waiting for Jeffrey to tell me what the acceptable threshold of murders committed by illegal immigrants is.
