If you are a student of history, you will recognize the title of this missive. If you are not, let me explain. After the successful landings in Normandy the Allies began pushing through the hedgerows and set their sights on crossings into Germany. One of the plans, offered by British General Montgomery, was to spearhead a combined airborne and ground assault through the Netherlands and cross the Rhine River into northern Germany. The operation was to be called Market (Airborne) Garden (Ground). It was to be the largest airborne operation ever known and it pulled together US and British Airborne forces who were to seize critical bridges along a singular route enabling the British Armored XXX Corps to push through.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say approximately ten detainees at a facility in Massachusetts barricaded themselves inside and caused more than $25,000 worth of damages after being told they were being transferred to a medical wing for coronavirus testing.
We are sure you agree with ACRU that ICE agents are tireless heroes defending our border, citizens and legal residents from illegal aliens, particularly, criminal illegal aliens. Despite this, ICE is endlessly vilified in the liberal press. During the COVID-19 crisis, and as of this writing, ICE has stepped up and flown 466+ U.S. citizens back to safety from South America. ICE agents, you are the good guys, and we salute you.
Christopher Puente is a Mexican national convicted of numerous aggravated felonies, including sex crimes. Therefore, ICE asked Chicago to hand him over for deportation. Chicago refused. He then raped a three year old girl in a McDonald's. Did he feel above the law? There is nothing "racist" about enforcing laws and protecting the public. Politicians who push these policies should be held accountable.
In September, a Ukrainian illegally in the U.S. was charged with violent sexual abuse, attempted strangulation and rape. A 34-year-illegal immigrant from Mexico was arrested by NYPD in November and charged with violently assaulting a child. ICE issued detainers on both, both were ignored, both offenders were let loose back into the community because of NYC’s sanctuary policy. Fortunately, ICE tracked them both down. Sanctuary policy destroys lives. Politicians who support it need to be stopped. By voters.
We missed this article when it first posted back in December, but it is important enough to bring it to your attention today. It is a perfect explanation of how sanctuary policy leads to illegal immigrants receiving driver’s licenses and then being registered to vote accidentally on purpose and then voting and negating the vote of a legal voter. As this article points out, immigration is NOT a state issue, but actually falls under enumerated powers granted by the Constitution to the federal executive. New York is pointedly and aggressively breaking federal laws with one of its newest provisions requiring its DMV to notify illegal immigrants that ICE is after them, rather than the other way around.
