Why are these liberal, sanctuary mayors so intent on making sure dangerous illegal immigrants are released back out into their communities?

Really…, I’m asking?

Do they have something against all of the legal, law abiding, citizens that live there?

I mean, not even the other illegals and/or criminals want a child molester running around.

Why are these elected officials so concerned about illegal immigrants who can’t vote, who are also convicted felons, who also can’t vote?

It just doesn’t make any sense.

Who are these politicians representing?

Is the majority of people who live there that ignorant?

Apparently so.

Adam Shaw of Fox News reports that, “[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] ICE chief scorches Chicago mayor for glib response to latest sanctuary city horror crime.”

“In an interview with Fox News this week, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ripped into Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for her response to the sexual assault of a 3-year-old girl, allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant who had been sprung from custody by the city’s sanctuary policies.”

“The Democratic mayor had attempted to shift the blame to ICE in the aftermath.”

Ahhh yes, the old “trying to shift the blame game.”

acrime2 4

How, under any circumstances, could this possibly be ICE’s fault?

How, under any circumstances, could this possibly not be the fault of Chicago’s elected hierarchy and the local law enforcement who are willing to go along with these mindless policies.

The democrats have learned well from the originator of the denial strategy, former President William Jefferson Clinton, or “Wild Bill” as I like to refer to him.  He’s one of the original “Fondling Fathers,” along with Creepy Joe Biden!

Deny, deny, deny.  Lie, lie, lie.  Never, ever admit to anything or take responsibility for anything.

acrime2 6

‘“I think it’s the height of hypocrisy,’ acting ICE Director Matthew Albence told Fox News. ‘I can tell you, I’ve been firsthand trying to work with the city of Chicago for the better part of a decade to get them to cooperate with us so we can get criminals off the streets.’”

And we all know Chicago doesn’t need any help getting criminals off the streets!  (cough, cough, cough)  Ya, right.

acrime2 1

“The city’s controversial sanctuary city policies, in which local law enforcement ignore detainer requests from ICE that they be notified when arrested illegal immigrants are released from custody, have come under renewed scrutiny after one of those sprung from custody was arrested last month for allegedly sexually assaulting the 3-year-old in a bathroom.”

Ya think?

acrime2 9

“ICE had lodged a detainer in June against Christopher Puente, who has several felony convictions and a prior removal, after he was arrested for theft. But Chicago ignored the request and released him.”

acrime2 5

Why wouldn’t you ignore ICE’s request?  Mr. Puente sounds like an upstanding individual to me?

NOT!

“He was arrested again last month for the alleged assault. According to ABC 7 Chicago, prosecutors said the attack happened after the little girl’s father took his son and daughter to the men’s bathroom at a fast-food restaurant, taking the boy into a stall but leaving the girl outside.”

“Prosecutors say Puente then motioned for the girl to enter his stall, locked it, held the victim by the back of her head and covered her mouth. They say the girl’s father heard her cries and frantically tried to open the stall — he was able to see her feet dangling off the ground. He eventually grabbed her legs and pulled her out from under the stall. The girl was later hospitalized.”

‘“They’re critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city. Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business,’ she [Mayor Lightfoot] said when asked about the case.”

So you can’t be a “welcoming” city without letting illegal immigrant criminals run free, committing crimes all over the place?

It sounds more like you’re creating a lawless crime zone as opposed to some kind of sanctuary.

acrime2 8

If I was that father, I would be looking to charge the city with aiding and abetting a felon in the commission of a crime.”

How can you argue that they didn’t?

How can you argue that the city didn’t aid this criminal in his escape from custody?

Actually…, correction…, if I was that father, Puente would be dead, and they’d be searching for the person who brutally attacked one of their sanctuary friends.

I feel the city and its elected officials need to be held criminally accountable for their policies when they harm the citizens they are supposed to be protecting.

‘“If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better,’ she [Mayor Lightfoot] said.”

There’s her “glib response” for you.

acrime2 7

“For the mayor to sit there and say ICE should do its job better — we’d love to do our job better but we depend on the cooperation of other law enforcement agencies, just like Chicago Police Department does,” [acting ICE Director Albence] he said. “When they are working a case, they rely on the cooperation of other law enforcement agencies as well, that’s how law enforcement works — information sharing, intelligence sharing, and the sharing and pooling of resources.”

“He went on to note that it is the latest in a string of violent crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants who were released from custody despite ICE detainers. The Trump administration has sought to bring attention to other cases too, including the sexual assault and murder of a 92-year-old woman in New York City earlier this year. The granddaughter of the victim blamed the sanctuary policies specifically for her death.”

In the old days, democrats used to pretend to be tough on crime when they were running for office and then pull a 180 once they got elected.

Nowadays, they proudly declare they’ll be soft on crime in order to get elected in these confused, liberal, dens of inequity.

‘“We have seen time and time again, unfortunately, way too many tragic circumstances like this poor 3-year-old kid who is going to suffer trauma for the rest of her life as a result of Chicago not turning this criminal over to us when we asked for him last year,’ Albence told Fox News.”

‘“When they make policies that prevent ICE from doing its job, they have gotten involved in immigration law enforcement, they’ve gotten involved in impeding immigration law enforcement,’ he said. ‘They’ve made a determination that their political aspirations are more important than the safety of their constituents.’”

Even though President Trump has taken steps towards limiting federal funding to these cities, he should start getting really serious and direct the Department of Justice to start pressing federal charges against these elected partners in crime.

I can see in my crystal ball…, yes…, it’s becoming clearer…, I see improved cooperation between sanctuary cities and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)!  

But why the sudden change of heart by all of these sanctuary liberal strongholds?

Well, according to Jonathan Stempel of Reuters News Service, “President Donald Trump’s administration can withhold millions of dollars in law enforcement funds from states and cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Wednesday.”

Ohhh, that’s why!

afunds 7

Now we’ll see how much federal money these liberal sanctuary cities are willing to do without.

I believe we’ll see a shining example here of how “money talks and BS walks!”

“The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan was a victory for [President] Trump in his years-long fight with so-called sanctuary jurisdictions.”

“It overturned a lower court ruling directing the release of federal funds to New York City and the states of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington.”

“The states and cities sued over a 2017 policy conditioning receipt of the funds by state and local governments on their giving federal immigration officials access to their jails, and advance notice when immigrants in the country illegally are being released from custody.”

afunds 8

Just to let you know, if you’re not already aware, the democrats in this country have been influencing behavior, by cities and the states, with the promise of or the withholding of federal money for decades.

It is almost comical that they chose to sue the federal government over doing the same thing they themselves have used to their benefit without question.

afunds 13

“Wednesday’s decision sets up a possible appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which often resolves legal disputes that divide lower courts.”

Ha!  Good luck with that appeal!

“A U.S. Justice Department spokesman called the decision a ‘major victory for Americans’ in recognizing Attorney General William Barr’s authority to ensure that grant recipients do not thwart federal law enforcement priorities.”

afunds 5

It is a major WIN for American across the country.

Are you tired of winning yet?

I know I’m not!

afunds 12

“His [President Trump’s] battle against Democratic-led ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions focuses on laws and policies making it harder for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to find and arrest immigrants they consider deportable.”

afunds 2

afunds 6

“U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan in Nov. 2018 declared the conditions unconstitutional, saying the administration acted arbitrarily and capriciously in withholding grants without considering the impact on local law enforcement.”

“Acted arbitrarily and capriciously?”  Oh, you mean like when local police let dangerous criminal back out into their communities with no concern about the safety of their citizens, Judge Ramos?

afunds 10

“[The DOJ], however, said the conditions ‘help the federal government enforce national immigration laws and policies supported by successive Democratic and Republican administrations.’”

Like I said earlier, the democrats in this country have been influencing behavior, by cities and the states, with the promise of or the withholding of federal money for decades and decades.

Karma’s a b…h, ain’t it!

And, “what goes around comes around!”

WINNING!

Chicago’s a “sanctuary” city?

Chicago, Illinois and its liberal democrat leadership claim it be a “sanctuary” city.

I think you’d be safer walking around downtown Baghdad, taking a hike through North Korea or spending a weekend in Benghazi.

According to Merriam-Webster, “sanctuary” means “a place of refuge or safety.”

Elizabeth Llorente of Fox News reported that “Chicago has most violent weekend this year: 52 shot, 10 dead.

chicago 2

Wow…, 52 shot and 10 dead in one weekend!  Those numbers prompted me to look more closely at some other numbers.

My first reaction when I saw these numbers was that these numbers remind me of numbers you might see in a real “war zone.”

So I decided to look at the casualty numbers from the war in Afghanistan and see how the “sanctuary” city of Chicago compared.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of deaths suffered by our military personnel in Afghanistan was 857.

From 2012-2018, 6 years, the total number of gun deaths recorded in Chicago, Illinois was 1,216.

You can tack on another 20,000 or so casualties during that time frame as well.

This is a “sanctuary” city?

A “sanctuary” for who?

chicago 7

Chicago is the third largest city in the United States.

It is also, by definition, a “war zone.”

Actually…, based on the numbers, Chicago is worse than the war zone in Afghanistan.

According to Kristine Frazao of WJLA-TV in Washington D.C., “Some states with strictest gun laws also have the most dangerous cities.”

“One of the top ten states with the most restrictive gun laws in the country is Illinois, where last year there were 650 murders in Chicago alone, according to a USA Today’s compilation of crime data.”

chicago 4

“In Maryland, another state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, Baltimore had 343 murders last year and has highest per capita murder rate in the nation. The city was also just named the most dangerous city in America by USA Today.”

Liberals still haven’t figured out that criminals typically don’t follow “the law!”  Or maybe they have, but they just don’t care.

“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said she’s considering replacing Johnson [Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson], but will not decide until after a more thorough study of the city’s problems, according to WGN-TV.”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

“A study of the city’s problems?”

Just off the top of my head…, I would say there are too many criminals on the streets with too many weapons.  Now that’s just off the top of my head mind you.

“On Twitter, [Department spokesman Anthony] Guglielmi assailed a program known as ‘I-Bond’ that allows Cook County offenders to be released on a no-cash bond. The program was implemented in 1982 to address jail overcrowding.  But critics long have said it provides criminals a fast way to get back on the streets.”

‘“Letting gun offenders out on I-Bonds shows there is absolutely no repercussion for carrying illegal guns in Chicago,’ Guglielmi tweeted.”

Again…, just off the top of my head…, I would say these I-Bond things are a real issue as well…, but that’s just off the top of my head…, again, mind you.

In my mind, you would address jail overcrowding by building a bigger jail or another jail…, not letting criminals back out on the street who are a threat to the community…, but that’s just me.

What?!

Are you kidding me?!

Again…, just off the top of my head now…, I would say that part of the problem is that some of these gang members are not even human beings!

These people don’t need to be let out on bail when they’re caught…, they need to be locked up and the key thrown away…, regardless of how much it costs to keep them behind bars.

The alternative is more people are going to die.

These liberal “do gooders,” which is a fallacy all on its own, should be forced to live in the neighborhoods these “things” prey on.

They are obviously willing to take their chances with the lives of other law abiding citizens in Chicago…, why not their own?
