    Full title: ICE Just Arrested Dozens of Illegal Aliens in a Sanctuary City, the Majority Have Serious Criminal Records Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency many Democrats want to abolish, recently conducted a raid in Newark, New Jersey and arrested dozens of illegal aliens. The overwhelming majority have serious criminal records. ICE targeted Illegal aliens who had been incarcerated in the Middlesex County Jail and released into the community by local law enforcement without notice to federal immigration officials. The aliens arrested had ICE detainers that were not honored. Newark is a "sanctuary city." "Of those arrested, 16 subjects had...

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed, in her first one-on-one interview since taking office, said homeless advocacy groups that receive funding from the city need to better educate the homeless to "clean up after themselves." "I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood," Breed told the Investigative...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: GOP could win big in November thanks to Democrats’ radical, unrealistic immigration stanceRepublicans have the chance to secure a major victory and expand their 51-49 majority in the U.S. Senate in the November midterm elections – largely because Democrats are advocating radical, impractical and unpopular immigration positions. As more and more Democrats throw their support behind so-called sanctuary cities, abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and promoting open borders, more and more Americans are expressing their vehement opposition to these positions. Most recently, in their fervor over the child-detention issue, every Senate Democrat scrambled to...
  • Illegal immigration foes move to bypass liberal legislatures, take anti-sanctuary measures to voters

    There’s virtually no chance that the uber-progressive Oregon legislature would ever repeal the state’s oldest-in-the-nation sanctuary law, which is why locals worried about illegal immigration have turned to the voters. The Stop Oregon Sanctuaries campaign submitted roughly 110,000 signatures last week to qualify an anti-sanctuary measure for the November ballot, more than the 88,000 required, stunning liberal activists and laying the groundwork for a landmark ballot battle. “This has national ramifications and our opponents know that,” said Cynthia Kendoll, president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, which led the petition drive. “The thing that people don’t realize is that very seldom...

    Poll also finds most Americans oppose sanctuary cities Amid inflamed passions over President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, a new Harvard-Harris poll finds a majority of Hispanic voters want stricter immigration laws. The survey, by former Clinton pollster and strategist Mark Penn, found 51 percent of Hispanics want stricter laws, as do 53 percent of blacks. The June 24-25 poll of 1,448 registered voters began with the question: “Do you think that people who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or sent home?” Sixty-four percent, overall, said yes while 36 percent said they...

    In a move that is alarming San Francisco’s biggest industry, a major medical association is pulling its annual convention out of the city — saying its members no longer feel safe. “It’s the first time that we have had an out-and-out cancellation over the issue, and this is a group that has been coming here every three or four years since the 1980s,” said Joe D’Alessandro, president and CEO of S.F. Travel, the city’s convention bureau.

    Prominent Democratic pollster Mark Penn said on Thursday that a vast majority of Americans don’t really support so-called sanctuary cities that shield immigrants in the country illegally from deportation. Penn, who served as chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, revealed that 84 percent of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents. “I asked them, ‘Do you think notifying ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease,’ ” Penn told...

    The Justice Department said Wednesday it has begun distributing hundreds of millions of dollars in grant money that had been tied up in a major court battle over sanctuary cities. Byrne Justice Assistance Grants are used by localities and police departments across the nation to pay for equipment, training, personnel or other pressing needs. The Trump administration last year said it would condition the money on localities’ willingness to cooperate in holding illegal immigrants for pickup by federal deportation officers. Chicago sued, saying the conditions weren’t part of federal law.

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 6/7/2018 | John Merline
    Nearly two-thirds of the public oppose "sanctuary cities." Less than a third say they back the policy, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. The IBD/TIPP poll asked about support for a policy in which "some cities in the U.S. do not report illegal immigrants who commit crimes to federal immigration authorities." It found that 64% oppose the policy, with just 31% supporting it. More interesting, while just 16% strongly support sanctuary cities, 45% strongly oppose the policy. Every one of the 41 demographic groups broken out by the IBD/TIPP poll opposes this policy, except for Democrats (only 44% oppose) it,...

    Dozens of illegal immigrants shielded by New York City’s sanctuary policy this year have already gone on to be arrested for still other crimes including drug and theft, the federal government said Friday, looking to pressure the city to change. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement flagged more than 440 people in New York’s jails as deportation targets from January to April. But city officials would only hold those the mayor’s office deemed to have committed egregious crimes, ICE said, meaning dozens were shielded from deportation and set free. Of those, “hundreds” were released and 40 have already been arrested for...

Steve King. The Iowa Republican dubbed the bill the Mayor Libby Schaaf Act, after the Oakland mayor who alerted California’s bay area to an impending sweep earlier this year, in a move that immigration officials said helped hundreds of people escape detection.

    Breitbart ^ | 5/16/18 | John Binder
    Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member. In response, Trump called the MS-13 gang members “animals,” as he’s done in the past MIMS: There could be an MS-13 gang member, I know about, if they don’t reach a threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them. [Emphasis added] TRUMP: We...

    GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — In a GOP gubernatorial primary marked by over-the-top advertising, one candidate's "Deportation Bus" has drawn a worried response from a Georgia mayor. News outlets report Michael Williams will bring the bus to what his campaign calls Georgia's "dangerous sanctuary cities" beginning Wednesday. The former state co-chair for Donald Trump's presidential campaign says in an ad that his 30-year-old bus will send undocumented immigrants "home."

    About half of all Americans now live under sanctuary policies that shield illegal immigrants from law enforcement, according to the latest tally of jurisdictions that the Federation for American Immigration Reform is releasing Thursday. FAIR calculates there were 564 states and municipalities that refuse some level of cooperation with federal immigration authorities as of April 1, up more than 200 since President Trump took office and up more than 500 compared with a decade ago. There were just 40 sanctuaries when President Obama took office. Entire states such as California, Illinois and New York are now sanctuaries, as well as...

It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naïve! WALL,” Trump tweeted early Monday. The president’s directive came as a...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's visit to the nation's capital resulted in a war of words with Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins. Jenkins confronted the Democratic governor at his National Press Club event for his state's sanctuary city policies. The reporter had evidence to suggest the sanctuary status has endangered communities. Do critics have a point by suggesting sanctuary city laws "favor the rights of criminal illegal aliens over the rights and the safety of those communities," Jenkins asked . In Brown's defensive answer, he seemed to suggest that Fox News were the first ones to make such a claim....
