I find it completely comical — and utterly hypocritical — that these progressive socialist leftists feign outrage when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration. I am sure we have all grown tired of these “children in cages” accusations when we know those pictures are from the Obama administration.
Ask yourselves: why is it that these leftists cry over illegal immigrant children when they never shed a tear for the tens of millions of babies — American babies — murdered in the womb? I suppose that American babies, born and unborn, do not have any Constitutional rights, while illegal immigrant children do? Do not forget, that the leftists have already promised that women here illegally can have full funding to murder their children in the womb, as well.
I would surmise that the leftists do not think we are savvy enough to see through their “manufactured crisis” of pretending to care. After all, if they were not out there supporting open borders and promising American taxpayer-funded benefits, then these illegal immigrant children would not be forced to risk their lives on a very perilous journey.
But again, where are the tears and concern by these progressive socialists for the little black boys and girls who are being killed in the inner city communities run by the Democrat (socialist) Party by rampant gang violence? Or do they care about the decimation of the traditional, nuclear black family where children rarely have their two parents in the home?
These leftists are aiding and abetting the undermining of our national sovereignty. Where are the leftist voices speaking out against an attack against an ICE detention facility in Colorado where our America flag was hauled down, and a Mexican flag raised in its place? No, the left in America cares little about our rule of law. All they care about is their ideological agenda and attaining power.
Here is the latest example of how little the left cares about us, the American people.
As reported by Townhall:
“The Department of Homeland Security has released its report on quarterly numbers of ICE detainers that were issued and ignored by California sanctuary cities between January 1 and March 31 of last year. Detainers are requests made by ICE and ask local law enforcement to hold violent criminal aliens until they can be properly transferred to federal custody. Hundreds were ignored, releasing dangerous individuals onto American streets.
“The report will highlight cases where ICE issued a detainer, the detainer was declined, and the alien subsequently committed a crime after being released from state or local custody. Because ICE is often not alerted by uncooperative jurisdictions when a detainer has been declined, and because ICE may only learn of the detainer having been declined after an alien is arrested for a subsequent offense, the cases contained in this report are examples of a broader public safety issue and are not exhaustive,” the report summary states.”
What should immediately stand out to you is that our ICE agency is about to embark upon an operation to seek out individuals who have disregarded our rule of law by not showing for their court-appointed hearings. They have dismissed deportation orders, and we have local law enforcement agencies firmly admitting that they will not lend ICE any assistance. These local agencies are also “aiding and abetting” criminal illegal immigrants. What part of this is so hard to comprehend? You do not get to stay in our country illegally. We have a system of immigration. No, people who just cross into America, illegally, do not have Constitutional rights and protections . . . they are not citizens. Yet, the progressive socialist left provides them free healthcare and drivers licenses, further placing the lives of Americans in danger.
And speaking of American lives in danger, here are several examples of what the Homeland Security report states, per the Townhall article:
“A 32-year-old citizen of Mexico, who was previously removed by ICE on June 3, 2009, was arrested on December 28, 2017, by the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office for Shoplifting, and booked into the Monterey County Jail. On December 29, 2017, ICE issued a detainer, but the detainer was not honored, and he was released. On February 25, 2018, he was again arrested for Burglary and Possession of Unlawful Paraphernalia and booked into the Monterey County Jail. On February 26, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but it was not honored, and he was released. On November 26, 2018, he was again arrested for Inflict Corporal Injury on Spouse, Violation of Probation, and Shoplifting, and booked into the Monterey County Jail. On November 27, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but as of the writing of this report, believes the alien has been released and remains at large.
A 38-year-old citizen of Mexico was arrested on January 17, 2018, by the Los Angeles County Sheriff for Battery on Spouse/Ex-spouse/Date/etc. On January 17, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but the detainer was not honored, and he was released. On April 14, 2018, he was again arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol/Drugs and booked into the Los Angeles County Jail. On April 14, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but the detainer was not honored and, as of the writing of this report, believes the alien has been released and remains at large.
A 23-year-old citizen of Mexico was arrested on March 29, 2018 by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office for Inflicting Corporal Injury on a Spouse and booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail. On March 29, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but the detainer was not honored, and he was released. On April 11, 2018, he was again arrested for Inflicting Corporal Injury on a Spouse and booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail. On April 11, 2018, ICE issued a detainer, but the detainer was not honored, and he was released. On January 16, 2019, he was arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Assault with a Deadly Weapon and booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail. On January 16, 2019, ICE issued a detainer, but as of the writing of this report, believes the alien has been released and remains at large.”
Now, the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse who call themselves “the squad” want to abolish our ICE agency. In other words, we have so-called “congresswomen” — elected officials in America — who are aiding and abetting criminal illegal immigrants, along with the elected officials who release these individuals onto our streets in “sanctuaries.” Why should these illegals respect and regard our rule of law? Heck, these progressive socialists certainly do not.
Let me close by making something very clear: you can hate President Trump’s personality, tweeting, brashness, and demeanor. But there is one thing clearly evident, President Trump does not seek to endanger your life by aiding and abetting illegal immigrants to roam freely in our country. There are some individuals who will put your life and that of your family in danger just to achieve their perverted, anti-American agenda.
The choice is simple: the safety and security of the American people . . . or the demise of our Constitutional Republic. Choose wisely.
