President Trump allows the office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to do their job correctly and carry out whatever it takes to help enforce the immigration laws.
Numerous entities are against the ICE operations and have tried to protest ICE by holding events to rally against ICE. Some politicians have warned their sanctuary city that ICE would conduct a sweeping raid of arrests, scooping up violent illegal immigrants like clumps in a litter box. It’s their job to enforce immigration laws and hold people accountable for breaking the rules that America has set in place. Those defiant of ICE make excuses for the criminals, which places Americans in danger if violent criminals are allowed to roam the streets and kill people like what happened to Kate Steinle.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf sent illegal immigrants a warning that ICE was on the way to arrest them. She prevented about 800 arrests from happening, with no idea how many of them have violent crimes on their record. Another mayor followed Schaaf’s lead and did something just as ludicrous as what she did. San Francisco’s Mayor Mark Farrell offered himself for prison as long as his city keeps their “sanctuary city” status.
He offered to go to jail for it, and he might have to follow through with his offering if he and other mayors continue to allow their residents to break the law. President Trump had expressed withholding funds and holding cities accountable for their actions. If Trump goes through with that, then mayor’s Schaaf and Farrell have a very rude awakening coming their way.
Breitbart reported more on the incident involving the mayor who offered himself as a sacrifice to prison:
“Interim San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell is reportedly willing to go to jail to ensure his city always remains a “sanctuary city.”
Farrell assured hundreds of amnesty activists last week who were blocking and protesting in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building that San Francisco will forever be a “sanctuary city.” He also, according to ABC7, “said he is willing to get arrested if that’s what it takes to defend sanctuary city policies,” echoing comments that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf recently made.
The activists gathered to protest after ICE detained more than 200 illegal immigrants, nearly half of whom had criminal records, last week in various Bay Area raids. After Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tipped off illegal immigrants that ICE would be conducting sweeps, Thomas Homan, the agency’s acting director, said on last week that more than 800 illegal immigrants remained at large in the community because of Schaaf’s “irresponsible decision.”
According to KTVU, the “Power, not Panic Emergency Response Committee” organized the emergency rally. The group is composed of entities like: the “ACLU, the Alameda County Immigration Legal and Education Partnership, Full Rights Equality & Empowerment SF, Contra Costa East Bay Interfaith Immigration Coalition, the Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network, Centro Legal de la Raza, the California Immigrant Policy Center.”
The activists had signs that read “ICE, go melt yourself,” “ICE out of CA,” “Stop Racist Deportations,” and “Sanctuary for All.” They also chanted “Shut down ICE.”
ICE said sanctuary cities like “San Francisco and Oakland force” the agency to “focus additional resources to conduct at-large arrests in the community, putting officers, the general public and aliens at greater risk and increasing the incidents of collateral arrests.” In 2015, an illegal immigrant who had been previously deported multiple times told authorities after he murdered Kate Steinle that he came to San Francisco because he knew it was a “sanctuary city.” Steinle’s tragic death allowed Donald Trump to make illegal immigration a national issue, which enabled him to surge to the front of the GOP field and never look back.”
Twitter became very active regarding this situation:
Illegal immigrants are flocking to sanctuary cities in hopes to run and hide from the law. It would be more productive for illegal aliens to file paperwork and become fellow citizens. America loves immigrants, but the people of our country want everyone to follow the law. This is a country based on laws set up to create a civil country where most people are on the same page. We cannot allow people to break laws, because once that happens, then there is no end to how much the rules are bent.
Legal immigration is the best way to enter America, and it means people do not have to run and hide in a sanctuary city. Think about it – who would want to live in San Francisco anyway? If immigrants file the proper paperwork to enter America legally, then they can live anywhere they wish. Wouldn’t that make more sense?
America will be watching to see how Trump responds after the debacle with two California mayors who seemingly defy the laws of the government.
Can’t we all just follow the law?
