ICE Immigration Raids And Sanctuary City Politicians
ICE Immigration Raids And Sanctuary City Politicians
ICE will be conducting immigration raids in at least 10 cities tomorrow, and sanctuary city politicians are choosing illegal aliens over American citizens. That’s right. Politicians who should know better are taking the side of those here illegally instead of looking out for and placing American citizens first.
Here’s the thing, all of those who ICE will be going after were told in February that they needed to leave. Every single person on the list that ICE will be looking for had their case adjudicated in court, and were informed that their status didn’t meet the criteria, and were issued orders of deportation.
However, our political betters want us to ignore that specific detail. Instead all the sanctuary city mayors have informed us all that they won’t be cooperating nor helping ICE with the raids tomorrow.
“”We are all aware of the threat from President Trump regarding raids by ICE, and in response, Chicago has taken concrete steps to support our immigrant communities,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a statement. “I have directed – and Superintendent Johnson has confirmed – that CPD has terminated ICE’s access to CPD’s databases related to federal immigration enforcement activities.”
Baltimore Mayor Jack Young said in a statement, “I am deeply disturbed by the President’s recent comments around immigration and even more troubled at the reports of increased immigration enforcement. I want to remind Baltimore City residents that they have access to an attorney if they have been detained by ICE. Providing legal representation to those facing deportation maintains trust in law enforcement and our local institutions and keeps us all safe.””
Bill de Blasio opines
A word to @realDonaldTrump: New Yorkers won’t be divided by a sick plot to tear families apart and force immigrants into the shadows.
We KNOW our city is stronger, safer and more prosperous than ever BECAUSE of our immigrant communities. https://t.co/6F4AQP9rqU

This from the guy who thinks giving illegals drivers licenses will magically make NYC safer. Meanwhile, Chicago…
At the direction of @chicagosmayor, no city data – including all CPD law enforcement data & records – will be shared with federal Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents. Supt. Eddie Johnson has also ordered CPD not to participate in any deportation raids. pic.twitter.com/34Cz61lFHf

Very cute isn’t it?
The fact is, these aren’t random raids. ICE will be carrying US Federal Court signed deportation orders specific to those who received notification back in February that they must leave. Furthermore, all those above advocating to prevent an ICE officer from carrying out his/her duties, you too can be arrested for interfering with a law enforcement officer.
Here in Colorado the usual suspects are also advocating for illegal aliens rather than putting Colorado citizens first.
“Rep. Jason Crow wrote in an email, “The administration’s fear-mongering and disregard for the sanctity of family continues. As we struggle with the humanitarian crisis at the border, mistreatment of migrant children, and problems at the Aurora detention center, we should all see this for what it is: a political ploy that does nothing to fix our broken immigration system.””
About the Aurora detention center and detainees. Three escaped and were just found yesterday.
“Amilcar Aguilar-Hernandez, 23, from El Salvador, who is currently a suspect in a rape case in Fort Carson, was found in Colorado Springs, where ICE officers took him into custody.”
This is who Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) wants to protect. Terrific.
All those same politicians are also pointing fingers at Trump for all the problems at the detention centers on our southern border.
Acting ICE Director Mark Morgan makes some great points during an interview with NPR on Friday.
“”My duty is not to look at the political optics, or the will the American people, that’s for the politicians to decide,” Morgan said. “What the American people should want us to do as law enforcement officials is to enforce the rule of law and maintain the integrity of that system.”
ICE sent letters to more than 2,000 of these migrants in February, demanding that they report to immigration authorities, or leave the country. Morgan said many are not turning themselves in.
“So what are our options?” he said. “They’ve had due process, they’ve had access to attorneys, they’ve had access to interpreters. Majority of them don’t even show up. And then when they didn’t show up, they received ordered removal in absentia,” Morgan said. “We have no choice.””
ICE would really rather NOT conduct these raids. But those refusing to comply have given them no choice. All the pro-illegal politicians refuse to acknowledge that truth thus choosing lawlessness over the rule of law.
UPDATE: This from President Trump
At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!

Unfortunately, given everything the Democrats in Congress have refused to do, this move only punted the ball for a couple of weeks. Furthermore, the Democrats are going to attempt a victory dance on this one and say they won, Trump lost on this.
