It begins: Trump DOJ goes after sanctuary cities/states

Part of presidential candidate Donald Trump’s platform on illegal immigration includes his opposition to sanctuary jurisdictions (cities, counties and states), on which he has not wavered.

Her name is Kate Steinle


President Trump’s most recent statement on that subject was his weekly address on December 9, 2017. Referring to a San Francisco jury’s acquittal of the illegal alien killer of Kate Steinle, President Trump said:

“Kate’s death is a tragedy that was entirely preventable. She was shot by an illegal alien and a 7-time convicted felon who had been deported five times – but he was free to harm an innocent American because our leaders refused to protect our border, and because San Francisco is a Sanctuary City. In Sanctuary States and Cities, innocent Americans are at the mercy of criminal aliens because state and local officials defy federal authorities and obstruct the enforcement of our immigration laws….
Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on Sanctuary Cities – now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government.”

Did you know that there is a bill in Congress, H.R. 3003 – No Sanctuary for Criminal Acts, which was introduced by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) with 15 co-sponsors, none of whom of course is a Democrat.
H.R. 3003 would restrict the eligibility of sanctuary states or localities to receive certain DOJ or DHS grants. Instead, those grant funds would be reallocated to States and localities that comply with Federal law. H.R. 3003 would also provide for more robust detention of criminal aliens.
H.R. 3003 was introduced on June 22, 2017. A week later, on June 29, 2017, the Republican-majority House of Representatives passed the bill 228-195 without amendment. More than half a year ago, on July 10, 2017, the bill was received in the Senate, where it has languished since. If passed, President Trump will sign the bill into law.
Without the support of Congress (H.R. 3003), the Trump Administration is going it alone. But everything must be done carefully, and in accordance to law and due process.
In a press release yesterday, January 24, 2018, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a letter has been sent to 23 “sanctuary” jurisdictions.
The DOJ had previously contacted the 23 jurisdictions, raising “concerns about laws, policies, or practices that may violate 8 U.S.C. 1373, a federal statute that promotes information sharing related to immigration enforcement and with which compliance is a condition of FY2016 and FY2017 Byrne JAG [grant] awards.” It is that information sharing that sanctuary jurisdictions precisely refuse.
In its January 24, 2018 letter to the 23 jurisdictions, the DOJ:

  • Demands the production of documents that could show whether each jurisdiction is unlawfully restricting information sharing by its law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.
  • States that recipient jurisdictions that fail to respond, fail to respond completely, or fail to respond in a timely manner will be subject to a Department of Justice subpoena.
  • States that the jurisdictions’ failure to comply with federal statute 8 U.S.C. 1373 (on immigration enforcement information sharing) could result in the Justice Department seeking the return of FY2016 grants, requiring additional conditions for receipt of any FY2017 Byrne JAG funding, and/or jurisdictions being deemed ineligible to receive FY2017 Byrne JAG funding.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said:

“I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk. Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law. We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough.”

Below are the 23 jurisdictions, all Demonrat-infested:

  1. Chicago, Illinois
  2. Cook County, Illinois
  3. New York City, New York
  4. State of California
  5. Albany, New York
  6. Berkeley, California
  7. Bernalillo County, New Mexico
  8. Burlington, Vermont
  9. City and County of Denver, Colorado
  10. Fremont, California
  11. Jackson, Mississippi
  12. King County, Washington
  13. Lawrence, Massachusetts
  14. City of Los Angeles, California
  15. Louisville Metro, Kentucky
  16. Monterey County, California
  17. Sacramento County, California
  18. City and County of San Francisco, California
  19. Sonoma County, California
  20. Watsonville, California
  21. West Palm Beach, Florida
  22. State of Illinois
  23. State of Oregon.

Illegal alien accused of stabbing stranger in neck at California market had been deported seven times

illegal velasquez romero santa rose pd photo

Illegal alien Velasquez-Romero free to roam in sanctuary California/Santa Rosa Police Department photo


You own this sanctuary-loving demorats.
From Fox News: A man accused of an “unprovoked and brutal stabbing” at a market in California last month is an illegal immigrant alien with a criminal record who had been previously deported seven times, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman told Fox News.
Ricardo Velasquez-Romero, 39, who also goes by the name Eulalio Miniz Orozco, was arrested last month after local police say he stabbed a 61-year-old man in the neck at Lola’s Market in Santa Rosa on Dec. 21.
Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Velasquez-Romero “has been repatriated to his native Mexico seven times since 2007,” a spokesman for ICE said.
“Records indicate Mr. Velasquez also has multiple prior criminal convictions, including those from felony drug and weapons charges,” said James Schwab, a spokesman in San Francisco for ICE.
Schwab said ICE has placed a detainer on the suspect with the Sonoma County Jail, indicating a desire to take custody of him when released from local custody, and “continues to closely monitor the legal proceedings of Mr. Velasquez.”
At the time of the stabbing, Santa Rosa Police said the victim and the suspect had been sitting at different tables in the restaurant and had not spoken to each other.
“At one point, the suspect stood up and walked toward the victim,” the local police said a news release. “The suspect had an unknown stabbing instrument in his hand and stabbed the victim once in the neck. The suspect then fled the area on foot.”
Velasquez-Romero had been residing in Santa Rosa for the previous two months, police said.
The victim, whose name was not released, was transported to a local hospital with a life-threatening injury. At the time of Velasquez-Romero’s arrest last month, the police said the victim’s condition had been upgraded to stable.
Velasquez-Romero has been charged with attempted murder.
It follows the case of Kate Steinle, who was shot to death in San Francisco in 2015 by an illegal immigrant alien named Jose Ines Garcia Zarate. The case fueled a nationwide debate on sanctuary cities. Zarate, who had previously been deported several times, argued the shooting was an accident and was acquitted of murder last month.
California recently became a “sanctuary state,” where local police are prevented from asking people about their immigration status.

Florida man sentenced to 15 years in prison for leaving bacon in mosque

In San Francisco, five-times deported illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate is found not guilty of killing Kate Steinle and convicted only for illegal possession of a firearm, for which he will be sentenced to prison for 16 months to three years maximum.
But in Florida, a man gets 15 years in prison for breaking into and leaving a slab of bacon in a mosque.

Tess Sheet and J.D. Gallop report for Florida Today, Dec. 5, 2017, that Michael Wolfe, 37, faces 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to breaking into the Islamic Society of Central Florida Masjid Al-Munin Mosque in Titusville and leaving a slab of raw bacon in January 2016.
Police said Wolfe broke into the mosque, ripping down lights, smashing windows and leaving behind the bacon. The bacon “enhanced” Wolfe’s criminal mischief into a hate crime because pork — including bacon and ham — is prohibited in Islam.
State Attorney’s Office spokesman Officer Todd Brown said that Wolfe “entered a plea deal and plead guilty to vandalizing the mosque itself with hate crime enhancement, making it a felony. He waived his right to a pre-sentencing investigation.” Details of Wolfe’s motive were not released.
Prosecutors said Wolfe’s sentencing was reached after discussions with the Islamic Society of Central Florida and Titusville police.

Imam Muhammad Musri, who oversees a network of mosques in Central Florida, lauded the state attorney’s office’s effort to send a message to those who would target Muslims or houses of worship: “The intent is to really deter similar kinds of hate crime. After what we’ve seen in Texas at the church, this is needed. Our schools, our churches, our theaters, it’s a red line. It’s heartbreaking. The hate must stop.”

Wolfe is a habitual offender with multiple run-ins with the law dating back to 1998, including

  • Burglary and grand theft in 2001 when he was 20 years old, for which he was fined and sentenced to probation.
  • Grand theft and burglary of an unoccupied dwelling in 2004, for which he was sentenced to two years, seven months and two days in prison.
  • Burglary of a conveyance in 2011, for which he was sentenced to 64 days in the county jail.
  • In addition, Wolfe was found guilty in three DUI offenses, possession of hydrocodone and cannabis, and an array of traffic violations.

Wolfe is prohibited from returning to the mosque — a condition of his probation. Other details of the probation were not immediately available. He has the option of filing an appeal within 30 days of his conviction.

Lawyer of Steinle killer blames racism, and other reactions to Kate Steinle verdict

Her name is Kate Steinle


On July 1, 2015, 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle died in hospital two hours after being shot in the back by a bullet which had ricocheted off the concrete floor of Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco while she was walking with her father and a friend.
The bullet was fired from a 40 caliber handgun held by Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, a Mexican national who was illegally in the United States, had been deported from the U.S. a total of five times, most recently in 2009. He was on probation in Texas at the time of the shooting, and had seven felony convictions of drug (heroin possession and manufacturing.
On March 26, 2015, U.S. Bureau of Prisons turned Garcia Zarate over to San Francisco authorities for an outstanding drug warrant. He was transported to San Francisco County Jail to face a 20-year-old felony charge of selling and possessing marijuana after he had completed his prison term in San Bernardino in Southern California for illegally entering the U.S.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a detainer for Garcia Zarate, requesting S. F. authorities to keep him in custody until immigration authorities could pick him up. But, San Francisco, being a sanctuary city, disregarded the detainer and released him on April 15, 2015.
2½ months later, on July 1, Garcia Zarate fired the bullet that killed Kate Steinle. If San Francisco had not released the illegal repeat-offender, Steinle would still be alive today.
Garcia Zarate claimed he had fired the shot accidentally while picking up the gun which he had found, moments before, wrapped in cloth beneath the bench on which he was sitting. (The gun belonged to a BLM ranger, who lost the gun when his car was broken into.)
The bullet struck Steinle in the back and pierced her aorta. Her father and others performed CPR on Kate before paramedics arrived and took her by ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital where she died two hours later.
Garcia Zarate fled the scene and threw the gun into the bay. He was arrested about an hour after the shooting about one mile south of Pier 14. San Francisco Police divers found the gun in the bay alongside Pier 14 the next day.
During the trial of Garcia Zarate, which began on October 23, 2017, police revealed how they tricked him into confessing to the shooting. The prosecution claimed he brought the stolen gun to the crime scene while the defense contended the weapon was found under a Pier 14 seat.
On November 30, 2017, after 9 days of deliberation, the jury found Garcia Zarate not guilty of murder and manslaughter, but convicted him on illegal possession of a firearm. (Source: Wikipedia)

Here are some reactions to the Steinle murder verdict:

(1) President Trump:

(2) Secret Service agent Dan Bongino:

(3) Steinle killer’s defense attorney, Francisco Ugarte, calls those who are outraged by the jury verdict “racists” (h/t Gateway Pundit):

“I believe today is a vindication of the rights of immigrants. That today we have to reflect all of us on how we talked about this case in the beginning. And how this swarm of reflection and reaction on the basis of what I believe to be the racial dynamics of this case. Nothing about Garcia Zarate’s ethnicity, nothing about his immigration status, nothing about the fact that he was born in Mexico had any relevance on what happened on July 1, 2015.”

In other words, Ugarte wants it both ways — While insisting that Zarate’s illegal “immigration status” has no relevance to his killing of Steinle, Ugarte at the same time calls the jury verdict “a vindication of the rights of immigrants”.
(4) Trump administration will deport Zarate:

(5) Republicans react to Steinle verdict by rioting . . . .
H/t Reddit

What you can do:

Support Kate’s Law!
After Steinle’s killing, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Arizona) introduced HR 3011, the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015, also known as Kate’s Law. No vote was ever held. (Salmon has since retired from Congress.)
On June 23, 2017, House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) reintroduced Kate’s Law (HR 3004) and an anti-sanctuary city bill into the House. HR 3004 protects public safety by enhancing penalties for deported felons who return to the United States.
On June 29, the House passed HR 3004 or Kate’s Law by a vote of 257-167. The bill is now in the Senate.

Illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle found not guilty by SF jury

This is friggin’ unbelievable.
David K. Li reports for the New York Post that San Francisco jurors today (November 30, 2017) acquitted illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate of killing Kate Steinle, 32.

Kate Steinle: Killed by an illegal alien.


Zarate was found not guilty of charges including murder, manslaughter and assault with a firearm. He was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
On July 1, 2015, Steinle was with her father on Pier 14 in San Francisco, a sanctuary city, when she was struck down by a bullet that ricocheted off the concrete ground.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate


Zarate’s defense claims he had found the gun and it accidentally went off in his hand.
Before Steinle’s killing, Zarate had been held on an old marijuana charge and then set free by San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, despite a deportation order against him.
Steinle’s slaying became a political lightning rod, with then-candidate Donald Trump citing the tragedy as reason to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall and better enforcement of federal immigration laws.
Trump administration will deport Garcia Zarate. See “Lawyer of Steinle killer blames racism, and other eactions to Kate Steinle verdict“.

Playing politics in exchange for American lives: California "lawmakers" approve sanctuary state bill

kate-steinle-you-tube-screenshot

Kate Steinle: Murdered by an illegal alien in sanctuary San Francisco

The death of Kate Steinle meant nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, to demorats in California.
I cannot express here, within our guidelines, how outraged I am with the so-called lawmakers of that state. 
From Fox News: Lawmakers in California on Saturday passed “sanctuary state” legislation even as President Trump and his administration have vowed to crack down on jurisdictions that do not cooperate with federal immigration agents.
The bill approved early Saturday limits police cooperation with federal immigration authorities and is intended to bolster protections for illegal immigrants in the state.
But the acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Saturday warned of “tragic consequences,” saying the policy “will make California communities less safe.”
“By passing this bill, California politicians have chosen to prioritize politics over public safety,” Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE, said in a statement. “Disturbingly, the legislation serves to codify a dangerous policy that deliberately obstructs our country’s immigration laws and shelters serious criminal alien offenders.”
Homan said ICE wants to work with local law enforcement to prevent “dangerous criminal aliens” from being released back onto the streets.
The legislation will now be considered by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who announced his support after the top state Senate leader agreed to water down the bill and preserve authority for jail and prison officials to cooperate with immigration officers in many cases.
The bill that passed Saturday prohibits law enforcement officials from asking about a person’s immigration status or participating in immigration enforcement efforts. It also prohibits law enforcement officials from being deputized as immigration agents or arresting people on civil immigration warrants.
The legislation follows Trump’s vow to crack down on sanctuary cities. Such policies limit just how much local law enforcement officials cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
The debate about sanctuary cities intensified in July 2015 when Katie Steinle, 32, was killed as she strolled along the San Francisco waterfront with her father. Steinle was fatally shot by a illegal alien with a criminal record who had slipped into the U.S. multiple times illegally.
On Friday, a federal judge in Chicago has ruled Attorney General Jeff Sessions can’t withhold public grant money from so-called sanctuary cities for refusing to follow federal immigration policies.
U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber made the ruling Friday, in which he granted Chicago’s request for a temporary “nationwide” injunction.
The ruling means the Justice Department cannot deny grant money requests until Chicago’s lawsuit against the agency is concluded. Leinenweber wrote that Chicago has shown a “likelihood of success” in its arguments that Sessions overstepped his authority with the requirements.
The city of Chicago sued the Trump administration in August after it threatened to withhold funds from sanctuary cities, and refused to comply with the Justice Department’s demand that it allow immigration agents access to local jails and notify agents when someone in the U.S. is about to be released from custody.
At least seven cities and counties, including Seattle and San Francisco, have refused to cooperate with new federal rules regarding sanctuary cities.

King County judge pulls sanctuary city measure from Burien ballots

judge liz berns

The judge who made the ruling: Elizabeth Berns


The good judge stated the language in the petition was “inflammatory.”
About the judge who made the ruling:
“Judge Berns has been active in the LGBTQ community helping others understand domestic violence and sexual assault within that community. She has co-authored a chapter on LGBTQ Minorities and Sexual Offenses in the Sexual Offense Bench Guide for Judges, and a chapter on LGBTQ DV in the Domestic Violence Manual for Judges. She is the Project Chair for the King County Domestic Violence and Child Maltreatment Coordinated Response Oversight Committee, and is on faculty for the National Council of Juvenile & Family Court Judges for judicial education programs entitled “Enhancing Judicial Skills in Domestic Violence Cases.”
From Seattle Times: King County Elections is pulling an anti-sanctuary city initiative off the Nov. 7 Burien ballot, following a Thursday court ruling. The initiative calls for repealing a city ordinance, passed by the City Council in January, that bars police officers and other city employees from asking about a person’s religion or immigration status.
King County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Berns issued a preliminary injunction Thursday morning declaring the ballot measure invalid on several grounds, including that it exceeded the scope of authority granted to initiatives and deviated from state requirements “for the contents and form of a petition.”
“It was a little overwhelming to get to this point,” said Hugo Garcia, a member of Burien Communities for Inclusion, the group that sought the injunction. “But yeah, I’m very happy.”
The initiative, pushed by the organization Respect Washington, sparked a fierce immigration debate in Burien that mirrored the national one prompted by President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans being criminals and stealing American jobs.
Burien Communities for Inclusion cited language in Respect Washington’s petition to argue that it used inflammatory language that misrepresented the ordinance it sought to repeal.
The petition said the ordinance “threatens the safety of every Burien citizen and legal resident by allowing criminal aliens, like the one who shot Kate Steinle in San Francisco, to prey upon others inside our once peaceful town.”
Trump, among others, has cited Steinle’s murder in 2015 by an undocumented immigrant illegal alien as justification for cracking down on illegal immigration.
The plaintiffs also successfully argued that the petition intruded upon the city’s rights to govern its own affairs.
“It tells the city of Burien what kind of instructions to give its employees,” said Dmitri Iglitzin, a lawyer for Burien Communities for Inclusion, which includes city residents and other immigrant advocates.
Neither Respect Washington nor its lawyer could be reached immediately for comment.
Janine Joly, senior deputy King County prosecutor, said Thursday she had not yet heard of an appeal filed by the group. If Respect Washington did appeal, and won, she said a court would have to issue emergency relief to get the initiative back on the ballot.
The deadline for sending ballots to the printer is Thursday, said King County Elections spokeswoman Kafia Hosh. “Our team is working right now to create new ballots without the measure,” she said. The county is required to send ballots to overseas residents and service members by Sept. 23.
Garcia said the initiative had created a lot of fear in Burien, even for him, a naturalized American citizen who came here from Mexico when he was 8. “As a Latino male, I don’t know that cops are going to be able to differentiate whether I’m documented or undocumented illegal,” he said.

Churches Vow to Offer Sanctuary to Illegal Aliens

I might take those who aid and abet illegal aliens a little more seriously if they were as determined to evict the illegals who kill and maim US citizens. MIGHT.

Sarah Root: Killed by an illegal alien

Sarah Root: Killed by an illegal alien.


From NBC New York: Hundreds of houses of worship are offering sanctuary to people who could face deportation if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his campaign pledge to remove millions of immigrants living in the country illegally.
Kate Steinle: Killed by an illegal alien.

Kate Steinle: Killed by an illegal alien.


To some churches, sanctuary means spiritual support or legal assistance to fight deportation. Others promise or already are extending physical sanctuary by housing immigrants.
In Brockton, a poor city of about 95,000 people south of Boston, four churches have pledged to take in immigrants fearful of being deported. “If you need a safe place, once you enter the doors of this building, you are safe,” said the Rev. Abraham Waya, pastor of Central United Methodist Church, who said his church can shelter as many as 100 people. “We will host you and take care of you for as long as it takes.”
Jonathan Montez: Killed by an illegal alien.

Jonathan Montez: Killed by an illegal alien.


During the campaign, Trump pledged to “immediately terminate” President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration, including the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which has extended work permits and temporary deportation relief to more than 700,000 immigrants brought here illegally as youths.
In an interview with Time magazine published this week, Trump adopted a more sympathetic tone toward young immigrants, saying, “We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud.”
A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the agency follows a 2011 policy to generally avoid entering “sensitive locations” such as schools, places of worship and hospitals to take custody of undocumented immigrants illegal aliens. The policy says enforcement actions can be conducted in those locations in cases of terrorism or when there are “exigent circumstances.”
About 450 houses of worship of various denominations nationwide have offered to provide some form of sanctuary, including living space, financial assistance or rides for schoolchildren, said Alison Harrington, pastor of Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, Arizona.
Immigrants have been fearful for decades, particularly as deportations increased during the Obama administration, said Harrington, who is involved in the sanctuary movement on a national scale. But Trump’s campaign promises to build a wall along the Mexican border, to bar Muslims from entering the country and to deport millions “has really galvanized people,” she said.
The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, with more than 140 congregations, has adopted a resolution calling for “holy resistance” to Trump’s immigration proposals and declaring itself a “sanctuary diocese.”

Peter Pedemonti, Executive Director of New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia


In Philadelphia, a coalition of 17 churches and two synagogues said it has seen a huge uptick in the number of volunteers for a program offering support to immigrants when ICE raids their homes. The program had 65 volunteers in May. In the two weeks following Trump’s win, more than 1,000 new volunteers signed up, said Peter Pedemonti, executive director of the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia. “We know that we’re in a different historical moment right now and that our faith compels us to take increasingly bold actions,” Harrington said.
(Note: From the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia web site: “4 Ways to Fight Trump. Excerpt: “This is terrifying. Trump’s campaign of hate, racism and exclusion took the White House.  The backlash of white voters was harsh and strong, and Trump’s rhetoric now has the power of the White House behind it.“)
electionshaveconsequences
Some churches have already made good on their promises. In Philadelphia, a 40-year-old man from Mexico has been living in the Arch Street United Methodist Church for three weeks.
Javier Flores entered the U.S. illegally in 1997 and has been deported and re-entered several times since then. After being held in an ICE detention center for over a year, the agency released him for 90 days so he could prepare for deportation. He did not want to be separated from his wife and three children, so he sought refuge, said the Rev. Robin Hynicka, senior pastor. “For us, we feel it’s a moral obligation to keep families together,” Hynicka said.
Ingrid Encalata Latorre, an immigrant from Peru, took sanctuary last week with her year-old son, Anibal, at a Quaker meeting house in Denver. Latorre, 32, has exhausted appeals of a deportation order and is awaiting a decision on a final, discretional appeal to immigration officials in Washington.
She left her native Cusco, Peru, in 2000 to join an aunt in Colorado, where she found work as a dishwasher, cared for kids, cleaned homes and worked at assisted living centers, she said. In 2002, she bought fake papers from an unscrupulous street seller.
She was arrested in 2010 and pleaded guilty to a felony ID theft charge. She paid $11,500 in back taxes and successfully completed parole, but her guilty felony plea brought her to ICE’s attention. Advocates arranged for LaTorre and Anibal to stay in the meeting house.
Anibal, a U.S. citizen, is being treated at Denver’s Childrens Hospital for a congenital twisted neck condition; her other son, 8-year-old Bryant, is also a U.S. citizen and attends a bilingual school in suburban Westminster. “I have lived half of my life here,” she said. “Don’t be afraid. Just fight and keep going.”
Not afraid to keep fighting: Brian Terry, killed by an illegal alien.

California bill creates deportation ‘safe zones’ for undocumented immigrants

No “wall of justice” for these folks in California: Kate Steinle, those who were killed by an illegal in the LA fire deaths in June, Jonathan Montez, the two-year-old beaten and paralyzed by an illegal alien, the 64-year-old woman who was raped and and fatally bludgeoned in 2015 by illegal alien on probation, or the two deputies killed during a shooting rampage  in 2014 by twice-deported illegal aliens. How humane…

Kate Steinle, murdered by an illegal alien in California


From Sacramento Bee: Ahead of an expected hardline approach on illegal immigration under President-elect Donald Trump, California officials are proposing to further restrict the ability of federal authorities to detain and deport the approximately 2.3 million undocumented immigrants illegal aliens living in the state.
Illegal alien sympathizer Kevin de Leon

Illegal alien sympathizer and enabler Kevin de Leon


Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, on Wednesday announced a bill that would prohibit state and local law enforcement, including school police and security departments, from using their resources for immigration enforcement.
Senate Bill 54 would also create “safe zones” at public schools, hospitals and courthouses where immigrant enforcement would be banned, and require state agencies to update their confidentiality policies so that information on individuals’ immigration status is not shared for enforcement purposes.
“To the millions of undocumented residents illegal aliens pursuing and contributing to the California dream, the state of California will be your wall of justice should the incoming administration adopt an inhumane and overreaching mass-deportation policy,” de León said in a statement. “We will not stand by and let the federal government use our state and local agencies to separate mothers from their children.”
Trump has raised the alarm of California’s large Latino population and Democratic political leaders by promising to deport or jail perhaps as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants who are criminals.
They have already vowed to resist his policies, including by introducing measures this week to provide legal assistance for immigrants facing deportation proceedings, though de León’s statement also made clear that SB 54 would not prevent law enforcement from complying with warrants to transfer violent offenders into federal custody.
liar-liar
LIAR. The illegal alien killer of Kate Steinle  had a rap sheet of seven felonies, was deported five times, and in March of 2015 was released from San Francisco Jail despite immigration authorities asking that he be held.
Deportations previously reached record levels under President Barack Obama – more than 2.5 million by 2015. California officials responded with the “Trust Act,” a 2013 law limiting the state’s cooperation with federal enforcement, including forbidding state and local agencies from holding undocumented immigrants at the request of federal authorities.
