  • ‘Sanctuary City’ Oakland, Near-Broke, Will Use Gas Tax Money to Keep Lights On

    The City of Oakland is in such dire financial straits that it is planning to use $2.9 million from state gas tax revenues to keep the city’s lights on, rather than using the money to fix pothole-riddled roads, for which the funding was intended. The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the city is facing severe financial shortfalls, despite a booming economy that has seen wealthier households relocate from San Francisco across the bay to gentrifying neighborhoods. The problem is that the city’s costs are rising faster than its growing revenues, thanks partly to pension obligations — an increasingly common...

    The Florida Legislature passed a high-profile Republican bill on Thursday banning sanctuary policies that protect undocumented immigrants and requiring law enforcement officials to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The bill passed the House on a 68-45 vote with Democrats opposed, shortly after it cleared the Senate by a 22-18 mostly party-line vote, as the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported. Gov. Ron DeSantis has supported the measure and is expected to sign it into law.

  • Critics slam sanctuary city policy following Jersey City murder

    Jersey City’s sanctuary city policy is facing scrutiny this week following the revelation that the alleged Lincoln Park killer is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported twice. The policy, enacted via executive order by Mayor Steve Fulop in February 2017 and endorsed unanimously by the City Council, was intended to illustrate that Jersey City is a welcoming city to immigrants, its supporters say. But critics slam it as evidence that Democrats like Fulop aren’t thinking straight on immigration. Joshua Sotomayor Einstein, a Hoboken man and committee member with the New Jersey Republican Party, said Democrats act like any action...

    Officials from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency arrested more than 20 illegal aliens in New York city who had been released from custody in accordance with sanctuary policies. New York authorities refused an ICE request to "hold" the illegals until they could be picked up. But ICE followed through and arrested the illegals anyway. Daily Wire: “The sanctuary city politics of this city continue to put the safety of New York residents at risk,” Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ERO NY, said in the press release. “We need our elected officials to stop the rhetoric. The...

    Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) is urging President Donald Trump to help reduce “shootings and homicides” in Chicago by increasing federal investment in housing, economic development, job training, education, public health and “community policing.” “As you prepare your Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Request, I urge you to use this budget framework as an opportunity to support efforts to help reduce gun violence in Chicago, rather than scapegoating the city’s challenges to promote ideological political agendas,” Durbin told Trump in a letter sent on Dec. 13. “I urge you to prioritize federal support and resources that will help Chicago reduce...

    A California sheriff whose officers were led on a wild chase earlier this week by a twice-deported illegal immigrant killer says cops are “very frustrated” with sanctuary state laws preventing them from working with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents. The comments from Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux come following the death of Gustavo Garcia, a 36-year-old who police say embarked on a 'reign of terror' robbing a convenience store, shooting and killing a person and firing at buildings before crashing a truck that he had stolen. The day-long crime spree that began Sunday in the Fresno area also left five...

    Texas’ attorney general sued the San Antonio police chief Friday for what he said are violations of the state’s immigration law targeting “sanctuary cities” and sought millions of dollars in sanctions. The lawsuit Ken Paxton filed in state court was a rare enforcement action of Senate Bill 4, passed last year by the Texas Legislature and mostly upheld by a federal appeals court. SB4 is one of the toughest state laws targeting illegal immigration. It prohibited law enforcement agencies from refusing “detainer” requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, doing anything to stop an officer from asking about a suspect’s...
