Attorney General William Barr announced there will be a “significant escalation” on sanctuary cities that have been shielding illegal immigrants. It’s time to pay the piper! We are living in marvelous times when we are finally seeing real justice take place in our beloved United States of America! These sanctuary cities have costed the lives of many US citizens and jeopardized domestic security all across the nation. Rapes, murders, drugs by the millions, theft, and many more crimes are accepted in cities that call themselves “sanctuaries.”
The left runs these cities and welcome illegal immigrants with open arms so that they can gain the hand on votes. Barr says enough is enough and so does President Donald Trump after he announced at his State of the Union address, it is time to punish those who allow these criminal activities to continue.
Local and state governments have made ICE agents’ lives more difficult and placed them in danger with what Barr calls the obstruction of “lawful functioning of our nation’s immigration system.” According to these left-wing hell holes, no one in authority can touch the illegal immigrants.
Barr spoke at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., and said multiple lawsuits will be filed immediately against sanctuary cities and states. They are unconstitutionally getting in the way of ICE and working against the national reviews by falsely praising prosecutors and governments who support the left-wing ideals.
Barr stated, “Let us state the reality upfront and as clearly as possible. When we are talking about sanctuary cities, we are talking about policies that are designed to allow criminal aliens to escape. These policies are not about people who came to our country illegally but have otherwise been peaceful and productive members of society. Their express purpose is to shelter aliens whom local law enforcement has already arrested for other crimes. This is neither lawful nor sensible.”
The Department of Justice filed a complaint against one state, which has caused many problems. New Jersey was seeking injunctive and declaratory relief “against its laws that forbid state and local law enforcement from sharing vital information about criminal aliens with DHS.”
A New Jersey Attorney General Law Enforcement Directive 2018-6, states according to the DOJ officials, are illegally barred from giving information on the immigration status and information on when those parties in custody will be released. It also states for the New Jersey authorities to “promptly notify a detained individual, in writing and in a language the individual can understand” if ICE requires the individual to be detained.
Barr added, “We are filing a complaint seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against King County, Washington, for the policy… that forbids DHS from deporting aliens from the United States using King County International Airport.”
The DOJ stated they are going after the King County Executive Order PFC-7-1-EO. This order increased the cost dramatically for ICE to conduct transportation for detainees to be sent to Yakima, Washington. The DOJ says it is unconstitutional and is conflicting with the federal Airline Deregulation Act. This act “prohibits localities such as King County from enacting or enforcing laws or regulations that relate to prices, routes, or services of air carriers.”
One can cheer as we are seeing the Rottweiler of the DOJ go after what is truly illegal within our nation. The Attorney General continued to say, “Further, we are reviewing the practices, policies, and laws of other jurisdictions across the country. This includes assessing whether jurisdictions are complying with our criminal laws, in particular the criminal statute that prohibits the harboring or shielding of aliens in the United States.”
Barr also noted, there will be support from the Department of Justice when it comes to “federal subpoenas to access information about criminal aliens in the custody of uncooperative jurisdictions.” Sink them, Barr! Sink them!!
The Attorney General concluded, “We are meticulously reviewing the actions of certain district attorneys who have adopted policies of charging foreign nationals with lesser offenses for the express purpose of avoiding the federal immigration consequences of those nationals’ criminal conduct. In pursuing their personal ambitions and misguided notions of equal justice, these district attorneys are systematically violating the rule of law and may even be unlawfully discriminating against American citizens.”
This time these left-wingers get justice served to them on a silver platter. With Barr overseeing the federal complaints, we can say something will finally be done to ensure the protection of American citizens.
