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.
