Sanctuary Cities Continue To Obstruct ICE

Protecting criminal aliens while endangering innocent victims.

On November 22, 2019 Immigration and Customs posted a news release, ICE announces Montgomery County, Prince George's County criminal offenders shielded by current non-cooperation policies.

Once again local supposed “law enforcement” officials of Prince George’s County and Montgomery County decided to ignore detainers lodged by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

This is not the first time that these officials and other such officials have ignored detainers so that ICE could take these illegal aliens into custody to seek their deportation (removal) from the United States.

Clearly these officials refuse to learn the lessons even when their wrong-headed sanctuary policies result in the preventable death of a child!

In June of this year, FrontPage Magazine published my article, Politicians Must Face Consequences For Crimes They Enable

That article included a link to a May 21, 2019 ICE press release, ICE seeks custody of teen murder suspects for a second time- Local jurisdiction failed to honor previous detainers which began with this excerpt:

BALTIMORE – Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate.

Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar, both Salvadoran nationals, were previously arrested on May 11, 2018 when they were arrested by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGCPD) for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges. ICE officers lodged a detainer with PGCDC, however both were released on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE.

On May 16, 2019, PGCPD arrested the same individuals and charged them with first-degree murder.

The murder victim was a young teenage girl who would still be alive had the Prince George’s County Police Department cooperated with ICE.

Insanity has been defined as doing the same things the same way and expecting a different result.

My parents taught me that there are no errors in life, only lessons, provided that we learn from the situations where things go wrong.  However, for them, and for me, ignoring those lessons are utterly unacceptable!

The ICE press release that serves as the predication for my commentary today, noted that although they have issued detainers for aliens charged with a variety of serious violent crimes because of the non-cooperation policies of the police departments in question, it is likely that they will ultimately be released back onto the streets of the communities where they were arrested without appropriate notification being made to ICE.

When individuals are convicted for committing sex crimes they are placed on a registry of sex offenders to protect communities from their depraved and violent conduct.  You would think that all of our leaders in politics and law enforcement would agree that aliens who pose a threat to public safety and/or national security should be handed over to ICE when their jail sentences are completed to protect additional victims.

Check out the pending criminal charges lodged against these aliens below who are being shielded from ICE as noted in the ICE press release:

The oaths that elected officials, members of law enforcement agencies and our military are similar, requiring that they defend the Constitution and our nation to protect our nation and our citizens.  Indeed, frequently local police departments describe their mission statement simply as “To protect and serve.”

The obvious question is who is being protected by insane Sanctuary” policies?  Certainly not the hapless victims of the crimes that criminal aliens commit.

Sanctuary cities not only protect illegal aliens, including those with criminal histories.  In point of fact, Sanctuary Cities Protect Crooked Employers And Human Traffickers.  Exploitation of the vulnerable is anything but compassionate.”

Law enforcement officers are not provided with the latitude to only enforce the laws that they like and ignore those that are not to their liking.  Unlike patrons of restaurants who get to pick and choose from a menu, limiting their order to a few items, law enforcement officers are expected to enforce the laws, all of the laws, faithfully, objectively, fairly and dispassionately.

The biggest issue is that for the wealthy and powerful, the immigration system is not broken.  For them immigration has become a delivery system that delivers an unlimited supply of cheap and easily exploited labor, an unlimited supply of foreign tourists, and nearly unlimited supply of foreign students and finally, and of extreme significance considering that both political parties have members in key positions who are attorneys, an unlimited supply of clients for immigration law firms.

I laid out the magnitude of this underlying motivation for the failures of the immigration system in an extensive article, Sanctuary Country - Immigration failures by design.

The 9/11 Commission identified multiple failures of the immigration system as being directly responsible for the ability of international terrorists to enter the United States and then embed themselves in towns and cities across our nation as they went abMicout their deadly preparations.  The commission was clear that these failures of the immigration system including a lack of border security and the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States figured prominently not just in the terror attacks of 9/11 but in multiple other attacks and attempted attacks in the decade leading up to 9/11.

We have certainly seen additional terror attacks and massive levels of violent and deadly crimes committed by transnational criminals who easily gained entry into the United States and managed to hide in plain sight because of a lack of ICE personnel and resources that have been exponentially exacerbated by “sanctuary policies.”  While the open borders anarchists claim that they seek to “protect the immigrants” from ICE, in reality aliens who abide by our laws need no protection from immigration law enforcement officers.

Today Americans and immigrant communities need protection from two groups of individuals, criminal aliens and the politicians who protect and shield them from ICE.
