Our Voting System is Rigged!
You may be asking yourself what does the issue of Sanctuary Cities have to do with how are voting system really works? Great question! I'm just about ready to tell you, but first read over the information below.
Map: Sanctuary Cities, Counties, and States
"Sanctuary jurisdictions remain a significant public safety problem throughout the country. About 300 jurisdictions have been identified by ICE as having a policy that is non-cooperative and obstructs immigration enforcement (as of September 2015). The number of cities has remained relatively unchanged since our last update in August 2016, as some new sanctuary jurisdictions have been added and few jurisdictions have reversed their sanctuary policies.
Over the 19-month period from January 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015, more than 17,000 detainers were rejected by these jurisdictions. Of these, about 11,800 detainers, or 68 percent, were issued for individuals with a prior criminal history."
"Days after suing Arizona for “intruding” on the government’s authority by passing a state version of its immigration laws, the Obama Administration has revealed that it will also ignore violations of the federal statute."
"A Justice Department official confirmed in a news report this week that the agency will not take any action against cities that defy a 14-year-old federal law by offering illegal immigrants sanctuary. The measure (Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996) specifically requires states and municipalities to cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to immigration enforcement."
"The IG report showed that sanctuary jurisdictions who inhibit police from cooperating with ICE detainer requests are in violation of federal law yet have received millions in federal Justice grants. According to the report 10 out of the 155 jurisdictions examined by the IG were given over $342.1 million in Justice grants or about 63% of funds available to all American cities."
"The current sheriff, Vicki Hennessy, also supports sanctuary policy as a public safety tool. Sanctuary advocates say people who live in the country illegally are more likely to report crimes to local police if they know they won’t be deported."
"The NYPD leaves immigration enforcement to the federal government, and there are really strong public health and safety reasons for doing so,” said Donna Lieberman, head of the New York Civil Liberties Union."
"Asking cops to turn in or hold people who may be here illegally makes immigrants less likely to report crimes or fires, she said."
"The ordinance prohibits the arrest or detention of a person solely on the belief that they are in the country illegally. City officials wanted to build trust between the police department and undocumented immigrants, with the hope that they would come out of the shadows if they are victims or witnesses of a crime."
And finally just under 15 miles from my home in Jamul, CA there is Chula Vista...
"We do have an environment here where our public will not be afraid to either report crimes, either if they’ve been victims or a witness to a crime. We want to make sure that continues,” says Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas."
All of these Mayors....Democrat Mayors are singing the same tune, and that is without their Sanctuary City Policy Immigrants are less likely to report crimes or fires to the local government for fear of being deported. Of course these Mayors don't have any evidence to support those assertations, but it doesn't stop them from singing that tune. But wait...are these Mayors stupid or just ignorant of the U VISA?
The U nonimmigrant status (U visa) is set aside for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. Congress created the U nonimmigrant visa with the passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (including the Battered Immigrant Women’s Protection Act) in October 2000. The legislation was intended to strengthen the ability of law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute cases of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking of aliens and other crimes, while also protecting victims of crimes who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse due to the crime and are willing to help law enforcement authorities in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. The legislation also helps law enforcement agencies to better serve victims of crimes.
Noooooooooooo...these Mayors know exactly what they are doing and it has nothing to do with making a safe place for Immigrants to report crimes or fires to their local governments.
Nope, it's all about the VOTES!
It's all about making their Cities safe and comfortable for non-citizens to vote, it's as simple as that. But of course these Mayors would never just come out say the real reason, that would give away the advantage Democrats have at the Polls. Democrats know non-citizens vote for their Party in huge numbers and according to Ann Coulter in her book 'Adios America' that number is huge....
"Teddy Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Act was expressly designed to change the demographics of our country to be poorer and more inclined to vote Democratic. It worked! Post-1970 immigrants vote 8-2 for the Democrats." -- Ann Coulter
Democrat Mayors hope Immigrants will repay them for not enforcing current immigrantion laws with their VOTES. The evidence sure points to that conculsion and with over 300 Sanctuary Cities, Open Borders and a loose Immigrantion Policy where the Federal Government doesn't track VISA OVERSTAYS America's demographics have indeed change! And with the help of Sanctuary Cities non-citizens are free to vote with very little chance of them getting caught.
