    ... Police officers in Washington won’t be able to inquire about immigration status except in limited circumstances, and the state attorney general will draw up rules for courthouses, hospitals and other state government facilities aimed at limiting their use as places where federal immigration agents look for people in the country illegally. “Our state agencies are not immigration enforcement agencies,” said Inslee...

    People who abuse animals are sick and dangerous to rest of society.  Something is very wrong with the mental and moral wiring.  When the abuse involves sex and is such violent sexual assault that death results, the dangers are acute. Now, consider what the sanctuary state policy in Oregon has released into society, even though the perp is not legally entitled to be in this country, free to express his sick urges again, next time possibly with a human victim.  John Binder reports at Breitbart: As Breitbart News reported, illegal alien Fidel Lopez, 52-years-old, was convicted last month and sentenced to 60 days in...

    by Brian Hayes An illegal alien convicted of raping a dog to death was released by the sanctuary state of Oregon after being sentenced to just 60 days in prison. As Breitbart News reported, illegal alien Fidel Lopez, 52-years-old, was convicted last month and sentenced to 60 days in prison after raping his girlfriend’s small Lhasa Apso which led to the dog’s death. The judge in the case said he would have given the illegal alien more prison time but that 60 days is the maximum sentence allowed in Oregon. Following his sentence, Lopez was immediately released because he had...

    A South Florida mayor has offered up a proposal to deal with the Trump administration’s plan to release hundreds of asylum seekers into two of the region’s counties: bring them to Trump hotels and ask President Donald Trump to open up his own “heart and home.” Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen said in a statement on Thursday that he had been informed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials that the agency planned to release hundreds of asylum-seeking families caught crossing into the U.S. into his county each month on a weekly basis, without any apparent plans to address their...

    LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday it will not participate in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Warrant Service Officer Program. The program allows for local authorities to arrest and temporarily detain immigrants in the United States illegally on behalf of the agency, regardless if the city is a so-called sanctuary city. “As previously stated, the Sheriff’s Department will keep a line of separation between local law enforcement action and federal immigration policy,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a statement. “One of the Department’s priorities is providing public safety for all of Los Angeles County’s...

    Seeking to ensure that he can never again run for office, former Florida Republican Governor Jeb Bush took issue with current Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis' support of legislation aimed at penalizing cities that provide sanctuary for illegal alien criminals. "I just don't see sanctuary cities as a problem," Bush asserted. "Immigrants coming to the United States is an act of love. We should all be welcoming them. It shouldn't be left to a daring few communities to bear the sole burden of sheltering them." Even in the case of immigrants with a criminal history, Bush was adamant that "the...

    A pair of Massachusetts district attorneys filed a lawsuit against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Monday, asking that a federal judge place an injunction on the agency’s directive authorizing the arrests of undocumented immigrants at state courthouses. In the lawsuit, the district attorneys for Middlesex and Suffolk counties allege that an ICE directive authorizing the civil arrests of undocumented immigrants at courthouses is in violation of long-standing practices — and is harming the judicial system. “Entire communities now view the Massachusetts courts as places where they cannot go, for any reason, greatly impeding access to justice and undermining the...

    It was no accident Effingham County’s resolution to protect the rights of gun owners stole an important word from the very people the resolution was intended to provoke, supporters of the country’s sanctuary cities movement. Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler last month told a raucous crowd the origin story behind the “Second Amendment sanctuary county” movement, which began in Effingham and now includes 64 of the state’s 102 counties, counties in three other states, and nine more states in which counties are eyeing similar nonbinding measures. And as state legislators, emboldened by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, look at more gun-control...

    Vermont's politicians like to stand out nationally.  Republican Governor Scott led Vermont's effort to prohibit its police from supplying identifying information, particularly "immigration status," to federal authorities.  Bernie Sanders's 2020 platform consists almost entirely of anti-Trump sputtering.  Patrick Leahy recently invoked Watergate to challenge President Trump to release the Mueller Report — an awkward splash, since it appears that the Obama FBI was spying on the Trump political campaign in Watergate-on-steroids style. Then there's Burlington, Vermont mayor Miro Weinberger, who strives for Ocasio-Cortez-like stardom.  The mayor has challenged the president to transport unlimited numbers of detainees to the Green Mountain State, saying, "The...

    An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to “sanctuary cities” to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country. The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with...

    by Brian Hayes In 2017, during a Senate debate over illegal alien "Dreamers," pop icon Cher tweeted that everyone should take an illegal alien into their home...and she would too. Well it's been a long time since that tweet and no Dreamers live in the "Moonstruck" star's home or neighborhood. Typical Hollywood hypocrisy. But now President Trump has threatened to ACTUALLY send illegals who cross our border to "sanctuary cities" like Los Angeles, San Francisco and elsewhere. And suddenly Cher is singing a very different tune! Sunday she tweeted that L.A. “can’t take care of its own” residents, much...

    A Trump Administration proposal to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities spurred cries of dismay from Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif) called the idea “cruel and inhumane. Sanctuary cities are already struggling with the difficulties and expense of dealing with the newcomers who have come on their own. Living conditions are degraded, as anyone who has visited San Francisco recently may have discovered. It isn’t fair for the federal government to send us more of these people.” On the other hand, President Trump argues that “my proposal would more expeditiously get the illegal immigrants to places that vow to...

    White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of "sanctuary cities" to retaliate against President Donald Trump's political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland Security officials and email messages reviewed by The Washington Post. Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities at least twice in the past six months - once in November, as a migrant caravan approached the U.S. southern border, and again in February, amid a standoff with Democrats over funding for Trump's border wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco was among those...

    by Brian Hayes Another day, another enraging story of justice denied to American citizens victimized by illegal aliens, because a liberal judge took the side of a foreign criminal. Earlier I reported on an illegal alien from Guatemala who was released from a deportation order for one week by an Arizona judge, and then fled to Alabama where he killed a schoolteacher in a hit and run. Today we hear the outrageous story of a Boston-area mom whose long-time housekeeper stole her checks and fraudulently cashed more than $70,000 -- from the family's college savings account, no less. But instead...

    by Brian Hayes We’ll say it again like we’ve said it so many times before: This heinous crime was 100% preventable. This is what happens with open borders and sanctuary cities. This illegal alien was twice deported from the United States but found sanctuary in Jersey City, NJ before brutally murdering a 45-year-old woman and dumping her body in a public park’s lake. Jersey City is a sanctuary city. And ALL of New Jersey was given Sanctuary State status by its new Governor and Attorney General. Such lawless domains do nothing to protect their citizens, while shielding illegal alien criminals...

    Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico claims that background checks are Constitutional. In the Heller decision, Justice Scalia wrote that regulation of commercial sales was deemed Constitutional. The regulation of private sales has not been reviewed by the Supreme Court, to my knowledge. The Supreme Court has ruled the federal government cannot force the states to conduct background checks, at least, not without paying for them. It seems unlikely a state could require the federal government to conduct background checks for that were not required under federal law. Governor Grisham seems to have a problem with numbers: New...

    The NYPD is warning police officers about a possible threat from the MS-13 gang, particularly when they are off-duty. CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.” The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.”

    Mini-documentary published today by Laura Loomer. This is a short film about our current immigration crisis and the need for a border wall on the Southern border. Nancy Pelosi said everyone is welcome here in the United States, and went as far as saying building a wall on the border “is an immorality, and not who we are as a country”. I decided to put Speaker Pelosi’s own words to test by bringing three amigos, who happen to be illegal aliens from Mexico and Guatemala, to her estate in Sanctuary State California, where we hopped her fence and pitched...
