It’s the demorat way…
From Daily Mail: Cynthia Nixon has promised to turn New York into ‘a real sanctuary state’ for undocumented migrants illegal aliens in a swipe at Andrew Cuomo, her rival for the Democratic nomination.
The ex-Sex and the City actress areas including New York City for already adopting so-called ‘sanctuary’ legislation but blamed Cuomo, the current governor, for failing to take it up on a statewide level.
This and similar pro-immigrant measures would help turn the state into a ‘progressive bastion’, Nixon said during a speech in Rochester on Thursday.
‘All of these things that we should have done and that New Yorkers want us do, that’s why I am running.
‘Times up on progressive change and waiting for progressive change in New York,’ Nixon said, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
In the same speech Nixon also demanded more money for schools and renewable energy, and new laws to create a single-tier health system.
The New York Assembly passed sanctuary state legislation last year, but this was thrown out in the Republican-controlled senate.
Cuomo has been accused of preventing sanctuary legislation from going through the Senate by allowing a controversial power-sharing deal between Republicans and a breakaway group of Democrats.
The Independent Democratic Conference joined Republicans in a ‘majority coalition’ in return for leadership positions and lucrative stipends. It lasted for seven years before ending earlier this month.
New York City passed a bill in October 2017 ruling that no state money would be used to help enforce federal immigration legislation.
Other areas that have adopted similar legislation in the state include Albany, Ithaca, Wayne County, Omondaga County, Franklin County and St Lawrence County.
Cuomo hit back against Nixon’s criticism, saying: ‘I think we have the most progressive record in the country in this state.’
Sanctuary legislation has been heavily criticised by Republican legislators.
At a roundtable on the issue in March, President Trump accused cities that fail to cooperate with immigration authorities of putting the nation at risk by releasing ‘thousands of criminal aliens’ who should be deported. ‘In many cases they are very bad actors. We have gang members, we have predators, rapists, killers – a lot of bad people,’ he said.
Earlier this week, Iowa became the latest Republican-led state to propose legislation which would withhold money from local governments that don’t comply with federal immigration laws.
A bill outlining an expansive immigration enforcement plan is expected to receive final legislative approval this week.

Really baffled by her (and all too many others) interpretation of “progressive”.

Cynthia Nixon has a net worth of $60 million, thanks to the “useful idiots” who watched her “Sex in the City” TV series and movies, written by homosexual men who portray women as sluts like gay men are. https://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-celebrities/actors/cynthia-nixon-net-worth/ Have Nixon and her “wife” Christine Marinoni sheltered any illegal alien in their swanky Manhattan apartment that they bought for $3.25 million in 2012? Friggin’ hypocrite. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2095243/Cynthia-Nixon-buys-3-25m-Manhattan-apartment–blocks-away-Sex-And-The-City-star-SJP.html Nixon is an outlaw in more ways than her “sanctuary” policy that violates federal immigration laws. In 2017, Nixon’s charitable foundation illegally donated $5,000 to the socialist Working Families Party. Charity groups are not… Read more »

She has lost all common sense if she had any in the first place. Has she not been watching videos of what is happening in LA, where miles and miles of illegals and homeless are living all over the place. Defecating anywhere and bringing disease and crime to the state in massive numbers, making Ca. A very dangerous place to live. And now she wants to do the same for NY. Go ahead and run on that platform and your opponents will run those videos 24/7. Does she really want that for her children? And with her 60 million dollar… Read more »

It’s because many in that area use them as laborers; gardeners, painters, bussers, etc.. In truth, and I’m sure much to the chagrin of most here, I have much more of a problem with those, “Americans,” in suits, throughout all genre’s, across this country. As, they’re THE only ones who have ever brought myself, and my family serious harm. And yes, I’m talking about everyone within the establishment; lawyers, judges, politicians, Freemasons – via gang stalking, even the g a y mafia (the DuPont circle qu**rs and their east coast posse – alefantis, Brock, etc.). Those are the people whom… Read more »

“Cuomo hit back against Nixon’s criticism, saying: ‘I think we have the most progressive record in the country in this state.’
So in other words he’s saying he’s trying harder than anyone in New York to break the bank and become California East. that’s a GREAT claim to fame. Years from now,people will say,”Cuomo? OH,YEAH-he’s the guy who single handedly made NYC a ghost town by going Socialist with it.”

These people aren’t Democrats. They are ignorant, morally bankrupt, philosophically challenged, reasonless crusaders for a cause they can not comprehend beyond the range of an immature child. They don’t understand why laws are created and why they exist nor do they begin to comprehend the damage they do by enticing people to break the laws put in place by authorities endowed by God just for that purpose. Creating sanctuaries is not only a violation of laws, it is a moral violation which goes much deeper than a law book. It is enticing someone to sin making it an affront to… Read more »

Take a good look at the UK and see the mess we are in and see and watch what our Politicians are doing, or not doing and how so many of them in both Houses have connections with those Muslim Groups that are dangerous. The British People have been thrown away to look after themselves. “Must not offend the Muslims” but (excuse my language) “sod the British People they will have to put up with it all”. Well we won’t, we fought back in 1939 and we will fight back again. Those damn “do gooders” are destroying everything, bleeding heart… Read more »

In response to the “hate speech”, we British have always taken for granted (which of course we should not have) our “Free Speech”, but these days here in the UK words like Black/Muslim are trigger words. “Free Speech” is now a Hate Crime, you can be arrested, fined, even imprisoned, its watching our Ps and Qs. We are watched, we are listened to, the internet usage is monitored. I have heard from several people whose work is removed from the internet. I used to work in London and enjoyed doing so. I used to go up to London from where… Read more »
