Sanctuary cities and states that are
advocating for the protection of criminal illegal aliens from federal
law enforcement, has nothing to do with compassion and/or pro-immigration viewpoints.
It’s all about power.
Not long ago, leading Democrats and
Republicans shared concerns about “illegal” immigration while vowing to take
measures to control the border and dispatch law enforcement to deal with
Many democrats of years passed have
called for stricter measures against illegal immigration and much stronger
border enforcement, even including expanding the wall along Mexico.
In his 1995 speech to congress,
President Bill Clinton stated, “We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also
a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of
immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in
recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”
Sound familiar? President Clinton
actually initiated an enforcement campaign against employers who knowingly
hired illegal aliens for American jobs.
In 2010, President Obama made a speech,
stating, “The presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all
those who are going through the process of immigrating legally. Indeed…the
legal immigration system is as broken as the borders.”
In 1994, Senator Diane Feinstein, D-Ca)
ran a political ad which she promised to get tougher on illegals with “more
agents, fencing, lighting and other equipment.”
Anyone can access Google to find
numerous examples how the tide has turned among prominent democrats, not only
by backing away from enforcement policies, some actually support the worst
immigration menace to America in which mayors and governors of states like
California, Illinois and New York openly call for laws to be broken. Officials
in “Sanctuary” cities and states thumb their noses at ICE, ATF and other
federal agencies by protecting criminals and breaking their oaths of office
including laws they swore to uphold.
Just last month, the mayor of Oakland,
California sent out an alert to hundreds of illegal immigrants in the Bay Area
warning them that ICE was about to embark on a series of law enforcement raids.
The head of ICE estimated that 800 or more subjects avoided arrest. Most
targeted subjects have past criminal records.
We are seeing the rise of anarchy in
America. Not only do some illegals break our criminal laws, they have allies
within government who aid and abet crime by preventing federal law enforcement
from doing their jobs.
How is that not an
obstruction of justice?
Sure, there are good and decent people
within the “illegal” community, but there are also too many drug dealers,
smugglers, gang members, thieves, sexual predators and yes, murderers, all of
whom are a threat to Americans. Authorities have enough problems dealing with a
homegrown criminal population, we certainly don’t need to protect foreign
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel made it clear
that Chicago will “always be a sanctuary city.” That sentiment, which has been
echoed by too many, is a recipe for a slippery slope that will forever
transform America from a nation of laws to a nation of lawlessness. In 2017,
California’s lawmakers passed a bill (SB54) designed to protect undocumented
immigrants by defying the federal government. If a government can endorse the
breaking of laws, then all laws can eventually become meaningless.
The question is why? Why would governors
like California’s Jerry Brown and mayors like Rahm Emanuel and so many others,
embark on supporting lawlessness? These representatives take oaths to
defend the laws of our land.
There can only be one answer; the quest
for political power. The democratic hierarchy discovered a winning tactic. When
illegals from other countries are invited, supported, protected and even
embraced, democrat voters will be spawned by the millions for future
generations, swinging America into a one-sided power base forever. Add to that,
birth rates and the long range impact of chain migration, it’s only a matter of
time. Illegal aliens, criminal and non-criminal, will be forever grateful and
indebted to those who protected them, ergo, voting democrat forever.
It has nothing to do with compassion.
It’s simply a tactic to expand numbers, and with numbers, comes power.
It’s like farmers sowing seeds for the
future. The best way to do that, is keep those borders open, keep the flow
coming, protect illegal immigrants (criminal or not) and nurture the political
plantation to produce lifelong loyalists.
This nullifies the taking of an oath
when assuming a seat in the political spectrum. Any violation of oaths such as
this is a clear warning that oaths are meaningless.
If government leaders can openly support
the breaking of laws, what’s next?
