  • The Radical Left’s Sex Crimes Hypocrisy-attacked Judge Kavanaugh - while shielding criminal aliens

    The issue of sexual assault has become the latest focus for the leaders of the increasingly radical Democratic party.  Make no mistake, sexual assault is a terrible crime that may prove to be life-altering for the victim of such crimes and for members of the victim’s family. However, the question that must be asked, is whether or not the Democrats really care about preventing sexual assault or in simply exploiting this horrific crime for political purposes. Consider how so-called “Sanctuary Cities” shield aliens from detection and apprehension by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents including aliens who have been convicted...

    The landmark law governing adoptions of Native American children, designed to keep them within Native American families, has been struck down as unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas. In an Oct. 4 ruling that has stunned Native American rights advocates, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor found that the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 illegally gives Native American families preferential treatment in adoption proceedings for Native American children based on race, in violation of the Fifth Amendment’s equal protection guarantee. Additionally, O’Connor ruled that the law violated the 10th Amendment’s federalism guarantees, specifically the so-called “anti-commandeering” principle established by...
  • Projected ‘sanctuary’ costs debunked by additional stats

    Times Standard (Eureka CA) ^ | Oct 7, 2018 | Shomik Mukherjee
    An upcoming ballot measure to make Humboldt County a “sanctuary” for undocumented immigrants has stirred controversy and drawn criticism from a variety of local officials after the county government published inflated cost estimates, but those costs rely on made-up assumptions not supported by existing data, the Times-Standard has learned. The cost estimates, revealed at a Sept. 4 board of supervisors meeting, assume that five to 10 times per year, the local Department of Human Health and Services will need to find children housing based on the wishes of their deported parents. That alone would take between $34,000 and 46,000 from...

    A left-wing federal judge with a history of ruling against the Trump administration ruled against it again Friday by revoking its right to enforce federal immigration laws in California and demanding it funnel a total $28 million in unpaid grant money to “sanctuary cities” like San Francisco. The ruling by William Orrick concerned a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year to revoke funding from so-called “sanctuary cities” unless they began abiding my federal immigration laws.

    The second episode of CBS’s rebooted version of the political comedy Murphy Brown aired October 4 and the chosen hot-button issues to punch were: bashing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ honesty and the introduction of a DACA student. If it were not for lame liberal talking points, this show would have no dialogue.

    In the wake of 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts’ alleged murder by an illegal alien, the Washington Post profiled the small community of Brooklyn, Iowa, which has been shaken by the crime, focusing primarily on the hardships of the town’s immigrants. As Breitbart News has reported extensively, 24-year-old illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death after police say he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and worked on a dairy farm using...

    The paint on the road near a predominantly Latino community near Des Moines read, "Deport Illegals." The sprayed-on sentiment didn't last the day, but some officials in the Iowa city are worried it's indicative of a simmering resentment for immigrants that has become more public recently. The red paint defaced both directions on a two-lane road on the city's south side on Thursday. "These actions are unfortunate and not consistent with Des Moines' spirit of compassion," Mayor Frank Cownie said. "Such actions have no place in our city." A city worker painted over the words later in the day. The...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Fifteen Oregon county sheriffs endorsed a message from Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergin on Monday that called for voters to repeal the state's sanctuary law in light of Mollie Tibbets' murder. Measure 105, which aims to repeal the law "limiting use of state and local law enforcement resources to enforce federal immigration laws," qualified for the November ballot with over 111,000 signatures. Sheriff Bergin, citing "respect for the law," hopes voters will pass the measure this fall. "The statute undermines respect for law in significant ways," Bergin wrote in regard to the state's sanctuary law, which...

    President Donald Trump criticized Democrats on Tuesday for blocking his efforts for tough immigration enforcement. “The Democrats want to turn America into one big fat sanctuary city for criminal aliens,” Trump said during a rally in West Virginia with a group of supporters. The crowd booed the Democrats loudly as Trump continued. “Honestly, they are more protective of the criminal aliens than they are of the people,” he said. Trump said he was committed to deporting criminal illegal immigrants, but that Democrats wanted to do the opposite. He criticized Democrats for calling for the abolishment of ICE, while ICE officers...

    Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) are in a dead heat in the Pennsylvania Senate race, according to a poll released on Monday. A Commonwealth Leaders Fund poll found that Sen. Bob Casey leads by only two points, with Casey at 47 percent, Barletta at 45 percent, and 6.1 percent of Pennsylvania voters undecided. The poll had a 3.6-point margin of error, making the Pennsylvania Senate race a virtual toss-up. The poll also weighted heavily for a significant Democrat turnout that outpaces previous “Democratic waves.” The poll suggested that Democrats will have a five-point turnout advantage over...

Did they get removed in anticipation of some windy weather? Surely the Department of Sanitation [DSNY] would soon restore the baskets – thereby easing the overflow trash – she thought.A neighbor who shared her concerns called 311 and was told that the baskets had been removed because people leaving Riverside Park were putting their trash in them. “You can’t make this up,” says Melissa.Nope.Counterintuitive as it may seem, DSNY says having fewer trash...

    Philadelphia is one of the so-called sanctuary cities in the United States. These are jurisdictions that are striving for the status of “no-go” zones in Sweden and Britain or trying to be French banlieue where the writ of national law does not run. In fact, Philly’s mayor, James Kenney, was so excited when a federal judge upheld his decision to refuse to allow federal immigration law to be enforced in Philadelphia that he did a small, orgasmic jig The price of his decision and that of his predecessor is now available for all to see and marvel at: U.S. Attorney...

    Ever since San Francisco passed their new measure allowing non-citizens (including illegal aliens) to vote in school board elections, the debate over such a concept has flared up yet again. Despite polls showing that only Democrats approve of such an idea in anywhere near majority numbers, there are a lot of Democrats in the Bay area, so you’d think it would be a welcoming environment for them. That’s why it’s rather odd that so few non-citizens have been lining up to register to vote. How few, you ask? Registration opened on July 16th, but as of last Thursday, August...

    A man accused of shooting a Colorado Springs police officer in the head in a shootout early Thursday while free on bond was known to immigration enforcement officials, yet evaded deportation despite a string of crimes, court records show. Why Karrar Al Khammasi wasn’t deported was among the questions left unanswered Friday as his bond was revoked. Cem Duzel, the officer he is accused of shooting, remained hospitalized in critical condition. The 31-year-old Iraqi immigrant appears to have lived in the Pikes Peak region for at least five years, and he had at least nine contacts with police in that...

    As Portland mayor Ted Wheeler ordered the Portland Police Bureau to stand down and let the far left mob lay siege to the I.C.E. facility, employees at the building were helpless as they called for emergency services on at least two occasions due to the violence from the unhinged protesters. Police didn’t show up to help. Now the I.C.E. employees are fighting back, threatening to sue the city for a violation of their 14th Amendment rights to equal protection under the law.

    A judge on Friday declared a law the Trump administration has relied heavily on in many of its lawsuits against so-called sanctuary cities as unconstitutional. In a 58-page opinion, Judge Harry Leinenweber rebuked Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration’s efforts taken to penalize sanctuary cities, CNN reported. Leinenweber moved to strike down the underlying law, known as Section 1373, which mandates that local governments share the immigration status of individuals with the federal government. The ruling from Leinenweber, an appointee of former President Reagan, currently only applies to Chicago, though the judge reportedly said he intends for the...

    The Trump administration suffered another legal defeat on its sanctuary city crackdown after a judge Friday permanently blocked the government from retaliating against Chicago’s sanctuary policy by stripping away its police grant money. U.S. District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber, a Reagan appointee to the bench, said the administration is free to track down illegal immigrants on its own, but it cannot force Chicago to cooperate in reporting or turning them over. His ruling follows similar defeats for the Trump administration in California and Philadelphia, where judges have also ruled against the administration’s attempts to condition Byrne Justice Assistance Grant money...
