Sanctuary Cities

sanctuary cities

When a country allows Sanctuary Cities to exist, keeping IN illegals, some of whom have committed crimes (often), where is that country going?

Tell me ONE GOOD THING ABOUT SANCTUARY CITIES FOR AMERICA…For America.

If there are good reasons, I’d like to know them;  eager to learn.

Thanks.

    Sorry but I can’t think of one. Now, if you asked about [bad] reasons I could fill up a page, so to speak. I’m surprised that liberal Denver/Boulder isn’t on the list. Are these “CITIES” not in defiance of Federal Law? Oh, I guess that we don’t need no stikin’ law!

    I can’t think of a single thing good relative to supporting illegal aliens.

  3. bunkerville says:

    The lawyers love all of this. More business for them. Immigration law has become the new goldmine. Not that it is a plus.

  4. Being sanctuaries for criminals, no. However, I can think of lots of reasons for them to act independently from the government when the government breaks the laws like Arizona and Texas have been experiencing at the border. THAT kind of independence I approve, not releasing criminals.

  5. Imp says:

    It’s insanity and PC derangement run amok by total anti American, anti rule of law idiots.

    When a state like Arizona wants to enforce immigration law….the courts and the Feds pounce….you can’t do that…only we can enforce immigration law and the borders ( here’s where the 10th Amendment is trashed again ). But when these deranged, lawless crap holes ignore Federal law…they get “praise” and a pass? Praise for harboring criminals? Our society is going completely backwards. In the mid 19th Century and the early 20th….we took in plenty of functional illiterates and the dregs of the world to settle here. Thankfully they and their descendants assimilated and melted right in to the American fabric. The Irish who were vilified and hated, within two generations had a President in the WH. Then they ran cities like Boston, New York and Chicago. And I think we’re better for it.

    Now…in the 21st Century…we need to bring in a people where only 4% have a college degree…and 75% haven’t finished grade school..where 30% of illegals are in our prisons. Where 65% are on some sort of public assistance? Where day after day we read of one outrage after another and crimes committed against our citizens? When they bring in every disease that we as a better society have cured in the past 60 years…we’re exposed to them again? Then they fly their flag and have groups like La Raza to spit in our faces with their demands? And dare to call us “racists”? Sorry..but I don’t think we need or want to repeat that part of history again. We don’t need them. Or any elected pol whose name ends in a Z or a vowel….dictating to us that we have to allow all their cousins into the country…when they took an oath to uphold the Constitution?

    Every sanctuary city needs to be crossed off the Federal gravy train…no more federal funds….and in San FranNutso’s case….every person on that board of stupidvisors, should be arrested as complicit in this latest crime. Especially this “sheriff”….

    This is why Trump is surging now…he speaks for millions and millions of Americana citizens who are fed up with the lawlessness and anarchy on our border. Where we don’t know who is coming in? This is what the populace wants. He reminds me of all the founders who sacrificed their wealth, positions, careers and families to resist and fight the powers of the time and the status quo.

  6. Baysider says:

    Well … it tells decent people where they DON’T want to live.

    I agree with Imp. One practical thing the feds can do is to cross these off their gravy train. Michael Ramirez’s cartoon yesterday is tragically perfect. http://www.investors.com/editorial-cartoons/michael-ramirez/760500

  7. Kid says:

    IMP, All that and more. It’s All upside down.

  8. John M. Berger says:

    @Imp,
    All well stated, my friend!

  9. silverfiddle says:

    What Bunkerville said. We are plagued by swarms of activist lawyers.

    America is a sanctuary nation.

  10. John M. Berger says:

    @Baysider,

    Great Cartoon! I’m shearing it with many.

    2Baysider,

    You’re all correct.
    Baysider, I ADORE Michael Ramirez; it’s so easy to see why he was such a star at the LA Times but was let go. People loved him…Conservatives with great humor and who know the TRUTH. I heard him interviewed the other day, perhaps by Prager, I’m not sure, and I found him to sound much younger than I’d thought as he’s been around a LONG TIME. Turns out he is 54 and sounds 24! AND a really good thinker; very articulate as well as funny. I adored him even more.

    I asked this question of you all because, supposedly, there’s some benefit in that Leftwingers think if there’s a sanctuary city, illegals will come forward and identify ‘bad guys’ amongst them with impunity …. I think that’s NUTS and can see that most of you had either not heard that or found it too nutty to repeat here, but I thought I’d ask your opinions on that.

    I believe a country CANNOT LAST WHEN IILLEGALS CAN FIND SAFE PLACES TO STAY WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED AND THOSE NUMBERS ARE GROWING.
    How the HECK can leftwingers EVER approve of this.

    If ONLY the Congress had passed Bush’s immigration laws….but, no, the Left wanted to use his laws as fodder for their campaign.

    WE MUST STOP THESE SANCTUARY CITIES AND WE MUST HAVE ENORMOUS FINES FOR THOSE WHO HIRE ILLEGALS.

    Honestly, if the NY Times, which is doing an investigation now (SURPRISE!) finds that Trump is hiring illegals for his new hotel in Wash. DC., he maybe be toast not only as a candidate…he could serve time. Remember, it’s only Republicans who pay for bad actions.

    Heard the wonderful Michael Medved today and thought I’d share this with you. He was talking about Jimmah Carter and his new book….he opened with “Let me put it this way, Carter is every BIT as smart as he was as president!” And a chuckle. I loved that….talk about diplomatic!! 🙂

    HERE”S THE WORST THING:

    Though there are MANY Hispanics against sanctuary cities and illegal immigration (if I know some, there must be MANY more), we all have to realize that ANY REPUBLICAN who fights this is DEAD IN THE WATER.
    ANY REPUBLICAN who tries to stop immigration in ANY WAY, is dead. They know that, we know that.

    So, where do we go from there? UNLESS a HISPANIC REPUBLICAN delivers the blows…then there could be hope for our country.

    Ya think?

  13. Baysider says:

    Anybody who challenges ‘sanctuary’ will be vilified. We have our own version here in Soviet Monica. They’ve passed many new regs in the past year to make it a sanctuary city for deadbeat tenants.

    Well, years of ‘sanctuary-dom’ have put the lie to that old argument (about illegal witnesses being willing to come forward). All the heavy duty perps have to do is identify the snitches, and threaten them and relatives back home. When the law is so mercurial, and official judgments done on whim, who in their right mind would come forward to put any kind of target on their back? If we had less to begin with, THAT argument, too, diminishes.

    We were once a true sanctuary country. I’m thinking of Irving Berlin’s opening to God Bless America. As the storm clouds gather far across the sea, let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free. Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, as we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. We could only wish.

    From someone named SAL :
    “This is the response given by our Inept Dear leader, the Lair in chief King Barack Hussan Obama when asked about the MURDER of that lovely innocent woman, Kathryn Steinle, by that PIECE of SHIT “undocumented Mexican immigrant” Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who was deported 5 previous times … Kathryn Steinle a beautiful 32 year old young lady was walking on a pier in San Francisco with her father, when that SCUM-BAG randomly shot her with a stolen Gun. She kept saying “Dad, help me, help me,’” as she died.
    ”If Republicans had passed Amnesty, which would have opened the borders even more, this woman would be alive”.
    The White House and King Obama tried to dodge questions about whether the Obama administration is partly responsible for the death of a San Francisco woman allegedly shot by a illegal immigrant with a long criminal record, instead blaming Republicans for failing to pass a comprehensive immigration bill.

    SAN FRANCISCO IS RUN BY DEMOCRATS! That “sanctuary city” is their monster, NOT REPUBLICANS!

    Donald Trump was right, period..Illegal’s are illegal, period. Deport them all..My vote for Trump. A vote for Trump is a vote for America and a vote against every opportunistic arrogant Liberal politician, who has been destroying our America for power and personal glory. AMERICAN LIVES MATTER!And Hillary Clinton say what? NOTHING!”

    Z: If ONLY liberals told the truth……How can amnesty have prevented this drug-addled creep (He apparently would take pills he found in TRASH cans) from having found a gun and been so loaded (him AND the gun) that he’d shoot an innocent girl?
    MY GOSH, Obama really knows how to sling it, doesn’t he? And now Hillary appears to be taking over. “SAL” is wrong about HIllary…she lied again saying “I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican party for not responding immediately and saying enough, stop it. But they are all in the same general area on immigration. You know, they don’t want to provide a path to citizenship. They range across a spectrum of being begrudgingly welcoming or hostile toward immigrants.”

    Another GREAT example that the Left lies and just expects nobody to THINK WHAT THEY SAY THROUGH. ALL the R candidates have addressed Trump’s words…ALL but Cruz pretty much slammed him for them. And the rest of her statement is her own fairy land world truth, too.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider; good point connecting the MICRO and the MACRO here..Yes, the country’s going to hell in a sanctuary city handbag and Santa Monica certainly hasn’t improved for its ridiculous renters’ laws, has it. And great lyrics…. we could only wish, indeed.
    Berlin…another immigrant who loved America and added SO MUCH to America.

    SOME Republican MUST talk about his/her love of immigrants and that we ONLY want that they should follow OUR LAWS if they’re going to LIVE HERE (some ON US) and we do not ‘hate them’ as the Left’s trying so hard to indicate….and doing quite well at it.

  16. Imp says:

    Here’s how well sanctuary cities and unchecked illegal criminal aliens has worked out for us:

    347,000 criminal POS, illegal murderers, felons, rapists, drug smugglers, low life animals…have been released…to walk our streets…attack, assault, rob and murder us without any fear of the law or prison.

    If this were 347,000 Russian illegals…we’d be at DefCon 1-3 and have ships surrounding Russian in the Black Sea right now.

  17. Imp says:

    Baltimore’s twinky eating Mayor just fired her black police commissioner and replaced him with the deputy commissioner…a white guy????

  18. geeez2014 says:

    Imp, yes, and she says it’s not for the rioting but because of the huge homicide rate in the month of MAY….as if cops being scared of the mayor’s weak enforcement and not having their backs hasn’t contributed to arresting fewer people and having higher homicide rates? That woman is beneath contempt.

    Re the criminal illegals; Soon, Obama will talk about how we haven’t got enough prison space for them. Wait for it.

  19. Baysider says:

    We’re all proof of how immigrants added so much to America, Z. Just think if Armenia were the liberty and justice capital of the world with resources, affluence and perfect defenses. Glendale would be empty!

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider…those Glendale Armenians aren’t Armenians. They’re RUSSIAN Armenians. (Smile)
    My mom and I, just this morning, were talking about how they’re SO different than Armenians we know…and that’s because every civilization is reactive to its surroundings. RUSSIAN Armenians in ARMENIA (USSR, at the time) are thieves, etc. They know nothing but BLACK MARKET, because they were well trained IN RUSSIA.
    An L.A. cop once told me they didn’t have any Armenians in jail EVER until about 20 years ago when the Russian Armenians came…now jails are half filled with Armenians. From Glendale 🙂
    Sorry for the lecture; I TOTALLY agree with your point!

  21. Baysider says:

    Always good to expand one’s horizons. Perhaps the Armenians of Fresno are a completely different lot?

    I do believe it was Russian Armenians that succored Lev Nussimbaum (the Jew who became the Orientalist Essad Bey) and his father in their flight from Baku after the Russian revolution.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    Bay, the Armenians of Fresno are my kind of Armenians…mostly from Turkey after the genocide…you’re right.
    Could have been Russian Armenians….I don’t know much about Lev except that he converted to Islam as a child…and became Essad Be

  23. Mal says:

    Z, have you ever met an Iranian Armenian? They are the worst, even more so than the ones from Russia.
    On another subject, did anyone watch MSNBC last night? I stumbled upon it because I saw Trump being interviewed while channel surfing so had to watch. Some gal reporter was trying to outsmart him with questions, but she met her match! At one point she was stumbling and fell completely apart and had trouble speaking. Donald smiled and asked why she can’t talk! It was so funny. He took her apart while all the while being very diplomatic yet firm. He answered everything she had asked and did it well.

  24. Mal says:

    OH! And at one point, he looked straight at her and said he could me making millions instead of making this interview but loves this country and wants to do something about it. Naturally, she had no comeback for that, either.

  25. I cannot be objective about this topic. Will explain in a blog post on Monday, July 13.

  26. geeez2014 says:

    Mal, I WISH I’d seen that…I REALLY DO!
    He’s standing FIRM to what he says and absolutely CONFOUNDING and outDAZZLING the lefties…they can’t TAKE IT!

    AOW, I’ll look forward to that.. And, of course, nobody’s asking for your objectivity 🙂 We sure haven’t been! I’ll look forward to your research and conclusions…xxx

  27. Baysider says:

    Now this, today: According to a local ABC news affiliate, the confessed killer admitted during an interview that he picked San Francisco precisely because it is a sanctuary city.
