American Lives Sacrificed for an Immigration Agenda

How would you feel if your son was gunned down by an illegal alien who had just been released from jail (not deported, but released)? How would you feel if your “sanctuary city” community not only did nothing to stop it from happening again, but took it one step further by voting to boycott Arizona, where they actually are trying to do something about it? Can you even imagine the betrayal you would feel?
Meanwhile, how are government and some segments of law enforcement handling this? U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) threatens not to process illegals arrested in Arizona. Since when do they get to pick and choose? Sanctuary cities like Los Angeles will not enforce our nation’s immigration laws, leading to incidents like the senseless murder of young Jamiel Shaw II.
Fox News delved into this progressive movement within law enforcement here:
It seems they are concerned that enforcement may upset the delicate balance they have created in the community. When did law enforcement become a community outreach and sociology experiment??
PERF has been working against our current immigration laws for some time and certainly before the Arizona law was passed. Jeff Dunetz at Big Journalism exposes multiple statements that expose their lack of will to enforce these laws:
If the reporters had done some legwork they would have found the group is not just against the Arizona law, it is against any enforcement of immigration laws. For example, last July the group protested the federal program that trains local police departments to get involved in enforcing immigration law.
Coincidentally, Holder was the speaker at the PERF conference this year. At the conference, Holder stated the following:
As we encourage and pursue reforms, the Department will continue to focus on two key goals: fulfilling our obligation to enforce current immigration laws; and honoring our commitment to safeguard civil rights.
Sounds good, right? Well, there are a couple of problems with this. First of all, PERF made it clear from their statements that they do not want to enforce current law, as did ICE. Secondly, I would like to know what civil rights are currently and legally being offered to illegal immigrants? And why those rights seem to be taking priority over the law and lives of our legal citizens?
Rhonda Robinson told us Jamiel’s heartbreaking story back in May, and it is just one of many. Meet some of the other victims of illegal immigration. There are thousands of them. http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp
As Jamiel’s father, Jamiel Shaw Sr. put it,
“They’re coming for the American Dream and they’re giving us the American nightmare.”
That’s right. Continuing to allow the criminal element to be released back into society rather than deported is criminal itself. The protection of the people is the job of government, yet our current administration and its’ progressive network appear to be putting their political agenda ahead of the security of our people. Anytime something takes priority over life itself, we need to remind our representatives, loud and clear, what their job is really all about. LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, in that order. We should accept nothing less.
*- PERF is funded by government grants and private money (again).
