Because California has now declared itself a Sanctuary State, the head of ICE has made a strong statement about the only course left to them.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan said that California Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D) decision to sign the law, SB54, would “undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission.” And that in light of this, they will now have to conduct raids and sweeps on neighbourhoods and workplaces.
“ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighbourhoods and at work sites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.”
You see, the Democrats are trying to conflate the arrest and deportation of those who have committed serious crimes in the US with those who are just here illegally. By doing this, they can take a “moral high ground” and argue that “innocent” people are being deported. This was the whole purpose of the Sanctuary state bill…It clouds the argument.
They want to paint ICE as a group of bad people splitting up families when in reality, they are only interested in getting rid of criminal elements. This whole thing is smoke and mirrors being played out on the American people and it will cost American lives.
Most Americans don’t really care about illegal immigrants who have set up a home, work a job, and try and be a part of the community, but when someone commits a crime, they should lose all rights.
