It even surprised Gomer Pile that our government/Obama administration would pay sanctuary cities around the country to break the law. This is nothing new. It has been in practice for many years but in the last few years has totally spiraled out of control.
More than $3.4 billion in funding has been given to states and cities in the past five years, Texas Rep. John Culberson said in a statement announcing the Justice Department’s updated guidance.
It is hard for me to comprehend that the people that are paid big money to protect ALL Americans chose to support, shelter and hide people who are illegally in this country and many of them are consistently breaking the law.
What is a sanctuary city you ask??? This is what Wikipedia says:
Certain cities in the United States began designating themselves as sanctuary cities during the 1980s. The policy was first initiated in 1979 in Los Angeles, to prevent police from inquiring about the immigration status of arrestees. The internal policy, “Special Order 40“, states: “Officers shall not initiate police action with the objective of discovering the alien status of a person. Officers shall not arrest nor book persons for violation of title 8, section 1325 of the United States Immigration code (Illegal Entry).” Some of the 31 American cities are Washington, D.C.; New York City (see also undocumented immigration in New York City); Jersey City; Los Angeles; Philadelphia; San Francisco; Santa Ana; San Jose; Oakland; Salt Lake City; Dallas; Houston; Detroit; Chicago; Salinas, California; Minneapolis; Miami; Denver; Baltimore; Seattle; Portland, Oregon; New Haven; Somerville; Cambridge; and Portland, Maine.[dead link] These cities have adopted “sanctuary” ordinances banning city employees and police officers from asking people about their immigration status.
Quoting John Stossel; Give me a %^&*^$% break!!!!
It seems to me, if I were on the run from somewhere, one of the cities would be the ideal place to hide out.
What does the term illegal aliens mean you may ask???
A foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization. A foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or businessperson.
Does that word unlawfully jump out at you?? It should.
Why were laws created you may ask???
Government & politics
Rules and laws serve many purposes necessary for a thriving society, including the punishment of wrongdoers, the resolution of disputes, the promotion of the common good and moral habituation. The fact that every organized social institution, including families, schools and countries, have recognized rules shows humans’ dependence on established codes of conduct.
I may have missed something in that paragraph. Where does it state to shelter – hide and protect criminals? Where does it state that certain government officials, with the wave of their magic wand arbitrarily alter the laws as they seem fit?
As I have alluded to many ties; some of these initiatives have started out with good intentions but as they grew, corruption has crept into their midst and have taken over.
If it were ONLY law-abiding people in the mix, that may be tolerable. But as we know a good percentage of the people that our government is protecting and we are paying the tab for, are criminals. While there are here illegally, they are breaking the laws, raping – beating killing – robbing and anything else their little hearts desire because they are not subject to the same laws as American citizens.
More the 3.4 bbbbillion dollars in the last 5 years has been donated by the Obama administration to keep these people warm – cozy and out of sight. That is a total disgrace.
Is this why we elect people we thought are supposed to uphold the laws of the land, yet, as soon as they are comfortable in their jobs, they start writing their own rule books.
Justice Department Cuts Off Federal Law Enforcement Grants To Sanctuary Cities
In an unusual turn of events, the Justice Department ruled against funding of federal funds to these cities.
I am anxious to see how crafty the administration is to circumvent the ruling. Mr. O hates being said no to.
It is very easy for ANYONE to make new rules and live in a society that they do not have to be part of . I am still waiting to see all of the backers/supporters of illegals to open their mansion doors and take in about 50 – 100 people for an extended stay. How safe will their families be????
As long as the do not have to play in the mud, they keep putting on the false front and it is business as usual.
The USA needs a drastic change from business as usual in ALL areas of our government.
We need to make a clean
and put some new blood at the helm. The democrats and the PC-ers don’t want to admit what dire straights the country is in..
