Apparently enforcing laws on Americans is different than enforcing laws on illegal immigrants now
Two days after winning his party’s nomination for U.S. Senate Cory Booker is already pandering to La Raza. Senor Mayor has decreed that Newark, NJ will no longer detain illegal aliens.
The Newark Police Department has become the first law enforcement agency in New Jersey to refuse the federal government’s requests to detain people accused of minor crimes who are suspected of being in the U.S. illegally, according to immigration advocates.
In enacting the policy, Newark becomes the latest city to opt out of the most controversial part of the “Secure Communities” program implemented by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency in 2011, which allows the agency to ask local police to hold any suspect for up to 48 hours if their immigration status is called into question.
“Secure Communities” was designed to enhance ICE’s ability to track dangerous criminals who are undocumented immigrants. Under the policy the Department of Homeland Security reviews fingerprints collected by local police during an arrest, which then allows ICE to issue the detainer requests.
So if you’re an American citizen with outstanding parking tickets from East Nowhereville Idaho the Newark PD will run a warrant check and slap on the cuffs.
But if you swam across the Rio Grande and avoided paying taxes for the past 15 years they’ll send you on your way with an apology and a smile.
What is it with Democrats and selective enforcement of laws?
Of course as Chris points out, Steve Lonegan is running against Cory Booker. And surely, Ann Coulter’s favorite Republican, Chris Christie, who just happens to be Governor of New Jersey, will do all he can to help Lonegan win that Senate race right? AH, not so much
Because Christie plans to sit on his handswhile Steve Lonegan battles Cory Booker for Frank Lautenberg’s old Senate seat.
New Jersey governor’s allies say he will offer an endorsement, but no campaign appearances or fundraising help.
An endorsement to whom?
Please tell me he isn’t going to endorse Booker. Please?
Don’t hold your breath Wysocki.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie finds himself in an awkward situation as he mulls whether to offer any support to his party’s tea-party Republican Senate nominee, Steve Lonegan, against his Democratic friend and off-and-on political ally, Cory Booker.
Lonegan, who cruised to victory in Tuesday’s Republican primary, has a frosty relationship with Christie, dating back to his primary challenge to the governor in the 2009 campaign. Just this week, Lonegan earned a public scolding from Christie for his campaign’s racially tinged tweet attacking Booker. “This is a governor who calls it like he sees it,” said a source close to Christie. “When Steve Lonegan says something and reporters want the governor’s reaction, he’ll tell people what he thinks.”
Chris Christie, closer to saying “the Republican Party left me” every day.
Good people can debate what to do about the 11 plus million illegals in this nation. But, as with most other issues, Liberals do not want to debate, they want their way, and they want to shove it in our faces. Five Democrats, including Michelle Obama, are bringing illegal aliens to the SOTU tonight. That shows how serious they are about enforcing any immigration law. Democrats see one thing when they look at illegal immigration. They see a voting block that they feel will cement their future electoral success. Who cares about laws, or sovereignty, or national security when there are voters to be brought in to keep Democrats in control?
Senator John McAmnesty said last month that we “can’t have 11 million people living in the shadows.” However, I wouldn’t necessarily define the State of the Union speech as “the shadows”:
A number of Democrats, including First Lady Michelle Obama, are bringing illegal immigrants as guests to the State of the Union on Tuesday.
But a spokeswoman with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency declined to comment to The Daily Caller on Tuesday about whether the agency approves of this occurring at the Capitol, where Obama is set to give his annual address on Tuesday night.
“I don’t have any comment for you on this,” Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said after TheDC inquired whether the agency was aware of this and whether it was possible the guests could be arrested.
At least five Democrats are bringing illegal immigrants to the State of the Union, according to reports.
At this rate, the Left will have the entire dictionary censored soon!
Words hurt . . . and sometimes kill.
Calling a person “illegal” denies their human dignity. The slur opens the door to racial profiling and violence, and prevents truthful, respectful debate on immigration. People are not illegal.
Good grief! Well at least I can still call the goons at MoveOn.org assholes.
And our esteemed political “leaders” just keep on throwing money, OUR money, into that pit! Let bus call it the Pit of Eternal Fiscal retardation!
The Department of Justice has spent tens of millions of dollars this year to compensate more than two dozen states, counties and cities for their costs of jailing illegal immigrants — even though those communities have adopted policies that obstruct immigration enforcement, according to a recently released report.
“Subsidizing Sanctuaries: The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program,” a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, found that the federal grant program commonly known as SCAAP allocated $62.2 million — more than 15 percent of its $400 million total — to 27 jurisdictions that are widely considered to be “sanctuary communities.”
Some of those jurisdictions — including San Francisco, Chicago and California’s Santa Clara County — are even trying to opt-out of Secure Communities, a program that automatically alerts Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials when criminal illegal immigrants are booked into jail, according to the report.
UGH! Such absolute, abject stupidity! We are paying communities for the cost of illegal immigration, communities that are doing everything they can to attract those illegal immigrants! Does this make anyone else’s head com close to exploding!
