California governor Jerry Brown is still reeling from his horrible decision to make California a sanctuary state. Trump just added insult to injury by telling him he won’t get just part of the border wall he desperately needs, but all of it. Funny to watch the lunatic fringe masquerading as the left in this country keep losing, but that is what happens when you are stuck on the wrong side of history.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf enraged just about everyone who believes in the rule of law in this country by actually warning illegal immigrants in the area that ICE was preparing a massive sweep. Jerry Brown should have stepped in and put a halt to this illegal leaking, but we all know the Democrats just don’t stand for the rule of law, and value illegal immigrants over American citizens. So, with the Dems making their already hard job extremely difficult, ICE went on the offensive.
From the New York Post:
Federal immigration agents arrested more than 150 people in California in the days after Oakland’s mayor gave early warning of the raids, it was announced Tuesday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced that agents made the arrests in a three-day sweep starting Sunday that covered cities from Sacramento in the north to Stockton in the Central Valley. About half of those arrested for being in the country illegally had criminal convictions, the agency said.
Acting ICE director Thomas Homan said,
“Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety. Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail, they also force ICE officers to make more arrests out in the community, which poses increased risks for law enforcement and the public.”
In other words, the left is making this crucial and dangerous job even harder and that is the real scandal, not whether Hope Hicks told a white lie to get Trump out of some engagement he didn’t want to attend.
