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.

    Supposedly, Willie Sutton gave as his reason for robbing banks, “That’s where the money is.” The “sanctuary cities” are where the illegals are.

    With the abject failure of Repeal and Replace, the failed Muslim Ban, and the criminal investigation of a sitting president by the FBI, the trumpenfuhrer will amp his hunting of Mexicans to give his most ardent supporters (the 37%) boners.

    Mixed emotions about the failed ACHA – we won’t get the massive tax cuts for folks in our income bracket, but it’s better for the nation. We’re confident trumpy will take care of us with his new tax plan. It’s what Repubs do.

    How does trumpy plan to pay for his massive tax cuts for the wealthy – by heavily taxing imported goods destined for the working classes. Working class folks will pay more for necessities so that wealthy folks get tax cuts. It’s what Repubs do. Good idea?

    Sound familiar? Remember when Social Security taxes were increased and income taxes cut (1980s)? The surplus generated by SS taxes was used to offset the debt from rich guy tax cuts. Working class folks subsidizing tax cuts for wealthy folks! It’s what Repubs do.

    Tax policy, labor/union policy, monetary policy, immigration policy, fiscal policy, trademark/patent policy… in fact, every policy, works to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It’s what Repubs do. Elections DO have consequences.

    By cutting progressive federal taxes, the tax burdens are shifted locally, to rely on regressive local taxes, e.g., sales and property taxes. More money out of working class pockets, more for the wealthy. It’s what Repubs do.

    Why do Republicans hate the working classes so much?

      Boy, that entire comment was a load of bullshit, disinformation, distortions, half-truths, phony numbers and out and out lies. You have perfected your writing style and now qualify to write speeches for the DNC, Dumbass.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Stinky,

    Please pick one phony number and supply the correct value.

    Please pick one out and out lie and correct it.

    etc

    etc

    Otherwise you’re just masturbating mentally. You have devolved into only making personal attacks rather than discussing policy.

    We think you believe that comforting the comfortable and afflicting the afflicted is good policy.

  4. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Sorry, Dumbass I’m not going around doing your homework for you and cleaning up your messes. Just keep babbling incoherently about all kinds of nonsense in each comment. It’s what you’re best at. Well, that and making stuff up.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Stinky,

    So you admit you have nothing. Just as we suspected. You’re just jerking off.
