I am sure that most conservatives such as I want as little government involvement in our lives as possible but in this case of the sanctuary cities things have been allowed to go too far. What right do states and cities under the Constitution have to close their doors to federal agents to do their job of picking up criminal illegal immigrants is beyond me where they are protected from being arrested, in some cases they are prewarned that ICE will be showing up and not to answer their doors. President Trump has had enough and he is cracking down on the situation by sending nationwide an elite force of border patrol agents.
The following was posted by Adam Shaw, published by Fox News: “The Trump administration is deploying border patrol agents to sanctuary jurisdictions across the U.S. to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) track down and detain illegal immigrants freed by left-wing cities and states.”
“The New York Times reported Friday the administration is sending 100 specially trained officers to work with ICE from February to May. Among the agents are members of an elite unit known as BORTAC — which the Times describes as the SWAT team of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).”
“The push comes amid a broader effort by the Trump administration to crack down on states and cities that implement sanctuary policies. Such policies limit local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities in an effort to shield illegal immigrants from deportation. Specifically, they refuse to honor detainers — requests that ICE be alerted of an illegal immigrant’s release from custody so they can be transferred into ICE custody.”
These sanctuary cities are the most ridiculous of meaningless intellect I have ever heard of. They have even labeled sanctuary states and the governors and mayors within those states act like they are so proud of it. Oh please, give me a break! If this is where our society is heading it must be stopped and stopped fast and as I have been writing for a long time now governors and mayors have put themselves in a position to be arrested and the federal government have every right to arrest them.
Most people know of this but there might be some who don’t that in 1954 President Dwight Eisenhower established “Operation Wetback” to round up illegal immigrants so this problem is not unheard of but the difference now is that Eisenhower did not have a radical left socialist Democrat Party to content with, I will actually say that the Democrat Party was American then. The numbers that were deported is hard to get, I have heard anywhere between one million to three million and what makes it hard to get the accurate number is that there were millions of illegals that left voluntarily.
We have a President in Donald Trump who is not even talking about rounding them up but you never know what future consequences will lead to. It is not asking much from these governors and mayors to stop breaking the immigration laws of the United States. A President has much authority when it comes to immigration and what I would love to see is arrests to be made with these governors and mayors who think they are above the law and if I was them they have best not push Trump to his limits because the President has the law on his side and he will not be afraid to apply it.
