In a recent interview, Thomas D. Homan, Donald Trump’s Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, trashed the sanctuary cities that are protecting criminal aliens. He named the worst ones: Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.
“Sanctuary cities, in my opinion, are un-American,” he said.
They encourage crime, he added.
“In the last year, I’ve read all these stories of how the crime rate has exploded in Chicago, and the president’s trying to help them. We’re stepping up our game in Chicago. Is Chicago doing everything that it can to decrease the criminal activity up there? I say no,” Homan said.
“I say no because if you’re an illegal alien, and you get arrested in the United States for a crime, and you get booked in Cook County, Chicago, my officers aren’t allowed in the jail. They don’t accept our detainers. They don’t share information with us,” he said.
It puts everyone in more danger.
“Why would Cook County not want my officers, federal law enforcement officers, to go talk to somebody who is illegally in the United States that committed yet another crime against the citizens of this country? It’s ludicrous,” he said.
He didn’t stop at Chicago.
“San Francisco. How soon they forget,” he said in a reference to the July 1, 2015, slaying of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle by an illegal immigrant.
“Let’s talk about New York City, the site of the most horrific terrorist event in this nation’s history, and they don’t accept our detainers,” he said.
“New York City, they’re proud of being a sanctuary city,” Homan continued.
Homan added Philadelphia to the list.
“These jurisdictions, these cities, are choosing to shield people who violated the laws of this country that committed a crime against this country; they’re going to shield them. So, what’s next? Sanctuary cities for people who don’t want to pay their taxes?” he asked.
Woman said the police want to help ICE but it’s the politicians who are damaging this country.
“The street cops that I talk to want to help. It’s the politicians who want to make this a political game. It’s not a political game. This is a matter of public safety and life and death we shouldn’t be playing politics with this,” he said.
Our so-called liberals care more about criminal foreigners who have no stake in the country than they do about the safety of citizens.
Senator McCain is talking about passing amnesty, but does anyone believe that will do anything but turn the country over to foreigners and encourage more to enter illegally?
At some point, in the near future, it will be too late. Foreigners – criminal foreigners – will decide the future of this country.
In this next clip, he talks about MS-13. We are letting gangs into the nation.
