Skip to comments.Hoyer To Sanctuary Cities: Inform Feds About Felons
Posted on 07/07/2015 2:25:30 PM PDT by jimbo123
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer says that the over 200 sanctuary cities like Baltimore and San Francisco should be informing federal authorities when local law enforcement arrest felons like the illegal immigrant who allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco last week.
When asked by The Daily Caller if federal funds should be withheld to such cities who refuse to comply with federal law and do not report felons to federal authorities that are arrested by local police departments, Hoyer replied, Without getting into specifics as to the action we ought to take, my feeling is that clearly, we have all made clear we need comprehensive immigration reform. Having said that, people who commit crimes and in this case, felonies as I understand it, need to be excluded and removed from our country.

Why bother informing the feds? Per Obama’s unilateral amnesty by fiat the feds will just let these people go.
And no, don’t count on the GOP to fix this.
We are completely screwed.
This is lip service. They said before they would deport criminals. It is not happening.
If Hoyer wanted to improve the country, he would off himself ASAP.
200 sanctuary cities? Did I read that right? The respective mayors and governors are very much derelict in their duty.
There would seem to be plenty of AINO’s that should also be deported to the middle of the Pacific Ocean along with the illegal invaders.
AINO = American in Name Only
No wonder everyone’s after The Donald - they’re all in on it!
San Francisco won’t do this. They love felons out there. They keep electing Nancy Pelosi.
It’s so comforting to see that the people who are in leadership positions are so damned insightful that they can see this stuff in advance. Who’da thunk that an illegal immigrant who was deported 5 times would not have chosen a straight and narrow path to being a valued, responsible citizen?
This is perfectly reminiscent of the modus of CA politicans. Some freak event happens...a 7 year old named Kimberly reaches over to turn off her Mom’s ignition switch and the Mom loses steering and crashes into a bridge and the next day there is a “Kimberley’s Law” that forbids children under 8 from touching car keys.
If these cities don;t have to follow federal law, then why can;t a city declare itself a federal tax free zone?????
What is good for the Goose is good for the government gander...
Hoyer you are an Idiot, All sanctuary cities should be DENIED ALL FEDERAL FUNDS!
A renewal heartfelt plea. Huh?
Stenny .. You’re a disgrace.
Steny is a corrupted piece of Democrat dung.
(Wait till the dung beetles descend on his arse!)
From a news article: “Kathryn Steinle, 31 — a medical sales rep on her way to see her sister-in-law, who was expecting a baby — was shot in her upper torso at Pier 14 in San Francisco on Wednesday around 6:30 p.m., police said.”
ICE tried to take custody of Kathryn Steinle’s killer on one of his six turnstile visits to San Francisco, but San Francisco officials refused to turn him over.
Oddly enough the feds didn’t throw their weight around, demanding to get their way, blustering and shouting things like “preemption!”
See, if your state does something the Obama administration doesn’t like, like pursuing illegal aliens, you get the full court press (like Donald Trump), even if the feds don’t have the law.
However, if you are thumbing your nose at the law, and the Obama administration doesn’t have a problem with what you are doing, hey—carry on!
It’s not as if anyone important is being killed by illegals. It’s just regular people, schmucks like you and me.
Representatives are elected every two years. He’s got to cover his bases.
Any single foreign national that jumps our border outside of immigration law is SUPPOSED TO BE A FELON!!!!!!!!
Ah.....the Demon Rats suddenly care about illegal aliens?
I wonder why.......couldn’t be POLLING INFORMATION, could it???
Hoyer and Rahm Emmanuel are the least delusional out of the Dem leadership.
Has Pelosi said anything?
What the he\\ is wrong with these people? Direct question? Direct answer!
