The Smart People Mocked Trump’s Claims Of Massive Illegal Voting….

…. But as is so often the case, Donald Trump was correct.  Our allies at Judicial Watch and The Washington Times recently published the results of a major study which reveals that as many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in 2016.  And shall we take a guess as to which party’s candidates they voted for … ?

Sanctuary Jurisdictions Protect Nearly 12,000 Criminal Illegal Immigrants in 19 Months

The recent murder committed by a twice-deported illegal immigrant gangbanger in a Maryland sanctuary county makes the following information both enraging and unbelievable; nearly 12,000 illegal immigrants with criminal histories were protected from federal authorities by sanctuary jurisdictions in the U.S. during a 19-month period, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) figures obtained by the Washington D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

A few weeks ago CIS published a map identifying about 300 jurisdictions that have official policies shielding illegal aliens from federal authorities. During a 19-month stretch from January 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015, more than 17,000 federal detainers were rejected by these sanctuary jurisdictions, CIS found. Around 11,800 of the detainers, or 68%, were issued for individuals with a prior criminal history. “According to ICE statistics, since the Obama administration implemented the new Priority Enforcement Program in July 2015 restricting ICE use of detainers, the number of rejected detainers has declined,” CIS writes in a report accompanying the map. “However, the number of detainers issued by ICE also has declined in 2016, so it is not clear if the new policies are a factor.”

The bottom line is that hundreds of local governments across the nation shield illegal immigrants from the feds, even when they have engaged in criminal activity. In some cases they go on to commit heinous crimes that receive widespread media attention. Judicial Watch has reported many of them and launched investigations, obtaining public records from the jurisdictions that protected the criminal aliens.

Obama Administration Rewards Sanctuary Cities That Shield Violent Illegal Immigrants

You and I are less safe on the streets these days because President Barack Obama and his Justice Department reward localities that openly break the law. Our Corruption Chronicles blog has the disturbing story:

“The Obama Administration rewards sanctuary states, counties and cities that shield violent illegal immigrants from deportation with hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants and one of the biggest recipients recently made headlines for protecting a serial criminal who murdered a young woman.

“The money flows through the Department of Justice (DOJ), the agency responsible for enforcing the law and defending the interests of the United States. The DOJ is also charged with providing federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime, according to its mission statement, and seeking just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior.

“Apparently this doesn’t apply to local governments that support the president’s broad open borders policies, even when they violate federal law. The DOJ doled out $342,168,401 to 10 sanctuary states and cities that proudly reject federal claims for criminal illegal aliens earmarked for removal, according to the agency’s independent watchdog.

“Last year Judicial Watch obtained records showing that violent crime—including murder and rape—in the Bay area has skyrocketed since the San Francisco Sheriff and City Council expanded illegal alien sanctuary policies in 2013. Under the ordinance San Francisco law enforcement agencies are required to ignore most U.S. Immigration and “Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers. Judicial Watch is also investigating whether the city violated the law again with its sanctuary policy that led to the release of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant deported five times who gunned down Kate Steinle at one of the most popular tourist spots in San Francisco.

“Two cities—New York and Chicago—got $60,091,942 and $28,523,222 respectively from the DOJ and Philadelphia followed with $16,505,312. South Florida’s Miami-Dade County received $10,778,815, Milwaukee, Wisconsin got $7,539,572, Cook County, Illinois $6,018,544, Clark County, Nevada $6,257,9851 and Orleans Parish, Louisiana $4,737,964.

…The good news is the Justice Department IG agrees with Judicial Watch’s legal concerns about sanctuary cities – concerns that we have sued repeatedly over (most recently in San Francisco).  In city after city, the IG concludes that sanctuary policies that tie the hands of police cooperation with the feds on immigration matters are “inconsistent with the plain language of Section 1373 [federal law] prohibiting a local government from restricting a local official from sending immigration status information to ICE.”

Because of this IG analysis – and most importantly pressure from Congressman John Culbertson (R-TX) – the Obama Justice Department reversed course and is now requiring recipients of Justice Department grant monies to certify that they are complying with federal immigration law.  Cities with sanctuary policies can’t do this – so the spigot of tax dollars for this lawlessness may actually be turned off finally.

And yet, the practice continues.  This Administration has become so blatantly obvious in its thwarting and disrespecting our laws that they are no longer even denying the charges.  January 2017 can not come soon enough unless Hillary finds a way to buy into the oval office in which case we are screwed.

A Surprise Move from Loretta Lynch

From Washington Times: Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Congress on Wednesday she is preparing to crack down on sanctuary cities and would try to stop federal grant money from going to jurisdictions that actively thwart agents seeking to deport illegal immigrants. Her announcement marks a major policy reversal for the administration, which for years has opposed legislation that would have forced such a crackdown. The federal Bureau of Prisons will now try to deport illegal immigrants rather than turn them over to sanctuary cities, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday in a bid to solve the situation that may have led to the … Continue reading

America’s Sanctuary City Nightmare

“Too many Americans are being assaulted, murdered, kidnapped, and otherwise victimized by sanctuary policies that allow dangerous criminals to remain on the streets.” From: nationalinterest.org,  by Hans A. Von Spakovsky,  on Aug 23, 2015,  see the article HERE. A litigation battle is raging between the states and President Barack Obama over his attempt to impose a nationwide “sanctuary” policy for illegal aliens. Yet, there is no question that existing sanctuary policies implemented by numerous towns and cities have victimized innocent Americans. Those sanctuary policies have enabled illegal aliens to commit thousands of crimes –crimes that would not have occurred had … Continue reading

House Passes the ‘Donald Trump Act’

From Young Conservatives: ‘Donald Trump Act’ Just Passed in the House, Would Punish Cities that Don’t Enforce Federal Immigration Law Anything that upsets President Obama is a victory for the American people. Liberals will be too stubborn to admit as much, but deep down, they know it’s true. When 44 loses, America wins, as justice prevails. H.R. 3009, also dubbed the ‘Donald Trump Act,’ which “would punish cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration law,” passed the lower chamber of congress by a 241-197 vote. Hopefully, the Republican dominated Senate will echo the House’s sentiment. H.R. 3009 passed easily in … Continue reading

Sheriff Jones: California De Facto Sanctuary State

    It is a shame that local and state law enforcement men and women as well as people who have lost loved ones have to beg and plead to try to get Congress to act. Sheriff Jones’ statement was made in front of House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security Hearing. July 23 2015.  I commend him for a clear cut, unscripted and rational statement. I hope these congressmen and women stop talking this to death and act to fix this and other issues.  But I am doubtful.  These guys talk a game they think will keep them elected … Continue reading

There’s no mystery about why Democrats resist enforcing our immigration laws

From: nationalreview.com,  by Ian Smith,  on Jul 16, 2015,  see the article HERE. A new “sanctuary cities” map from the Center for Immigration Studies goes a long way toward explaining why open-borders Democrats are so addicted to flouting our immigration laws. When you consider the political makeup of the cities, counties, and states where illegal aliens are welcomed, you start to suspect that the liberal elite in San Francisco and elsewhere aren’t interested only in cheap nannies and gardeners. For them, pulling in more illegal aliens is, perhaps first and foremost, about pumping up their political power. The Census Bureau includes … Continue reading

Trey Gowdy Shreds Jeh Johnson over Sanctuary Cities

From Truth Revolt: “San Francisco sure as hell was not a sanctuary for a young woman walking with her father.” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) reigned fire onto Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson over his department’s failure to secure the American border and its allowance of sanctuary cities, like San Francisco, where illegal immigrants can fly below the radar of law enforcement. Gowdy’s top concern was the recent murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, killed by a multi-deportee illegal alien, as she walked along a San Francisco pier with her dad. The murderer, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, admitted to choosing San … Continue reading

Sanctuary Cities Report Card

    Apsanlaw.com according to their website has 30 years of immigration experience. They compiled a page on sanctuary cities that can be read HERE. Their information came from  OJJPAC.ORG and DOWNTREND.com  I did a cursory look at Wikipedia city information on these main populated cities across the country which should give conservatives a sense of justification for our attitudes concerning liberals and Democrats. The information was pulled from the Census of 2010 so obviously not currently accurate. – 16 cities had Democratic mayors – populations ranged from highest (including surrounding areas)  New York City at about 20.1m to lowest (including surrounding areas) … Continue reading
