This is a vital question in light of the increase in crime within the United States. The Democrats by their words and actions don’t believe in keeping Americans safe and secure as evidenced by their support for sanctuary cities and illegal aliens.
This week Ever Valles and an accomplice murdered a man. He was supposed to be held on a detainer notice by the Denver police but released without notification to Customs officials. If he was held as per the law, there would be a man alive today. This is one case out of many.
The mayors and councils of the sanctuary cities are criminals themselves. They are violating federal law. By declaring their cities and towns “sanctuary” cities, they are inviting criminals to migrate to their areas. Any fool with a brain and a little bit of common sense would recognize this to be the case.
Los Angeles is a good example. LA has experienced a rising violent crime wave for three consecutive years according to the LA Times. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti has been accused by rival mayoral candidate Yusef Robb of ”hiding and suppressing the police reports.” Normally, Garcetti holds a news conference every year to discuss crime statistics but this year he is silent.
The LA Police Protection League has been requesting for years additional funding to hire more police officers. The city has NOT provided the necessary funding nor has the State of California. That leaves the federal government as the only other source for police officer hiring funds. But, by being a sanctuary city they probably will NOT receive federal funding because of their unwillingness to cooperate with federal authorities in deporting illegal criminal aliens. No additional officers means more peaceful LA citizens will face continuing rates of crime not only in the city but also in surrounding communities. The primary victims will be other illegal aliens who are not criminals because the criminals live among them.
Democrats can only blame themselves for the “sanctuary” crime waves impacting upon their communities. By voting in Democratic politicians who do not want to obey the law, they are creating lawless communities which will continue to attract criminals to settle among them. As the saying goes, “You reap what you sow!”
The question now is what “sanctuary” cities will become rivals of Chicago for the murder capital of the US. It will get worse for these cities and they deserve it because of the citizens who support the sanctuary concept and politicians who act on it. Idiots!
