Operation Safe City clears nearly 500 criminal aliens from sanctuary cities

Published

on

Nearly 500 criminal aliens were nabbed from sanctuary cities across the U.S. this week in “Operation Safe City.” ICE used its own agents to sweep through Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland Ore., San Jose, Washington D.C., and all over Massachusetts.

Good for ICE. Acting Director Tom Homan summed it up.

“Sanctuary jurisdictions that do not honor detainers or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.”

Most of the people arrested were bad hombres who were likely in these sanctuary cities for the specific reason that they’d be shielded from deportation by authorities. An example of the people these sanctuaries were protecting:

“San Jose: a citizen of Mexico who entered the U.S. on a visa and overstayed that visa for more than 10 years. He was previously convicted of felony possession and purchase of narcotics, possession of a controlled substance for sale, and felony child cruelty with the possibility of injury or death. He was previously released from local custody before ICE could assume custody.”

Rich Lowry on Dick Durbin’s desire to make a DACA deal work

Rich Lowry on Dick Durbins desire to make a DACA deal work

Based upon Senator Dick Durbin’s actions the last few days regarding President Trump’s “s***hole” comments, one would think his intention was to derail talks and have a valid reason to blame Republicans in general and Trump in particular. If he really wanted a DACA deal, wouldn’t he have handled it differently?

JD Rucker had some thoughts on this:

Trump was wrong to say what he said. Durbin was wrong to reveal it.

http://noqreport.com/2018/01/12/trump-wrong-say-said-durbin-wrong-reveal/Durbin crossed that line. He took comments that paint the entire country through the President himself in a way that harms our ability to work with other nations. He wasn’t championing the nations Trump spoke out about. He had a single intention: harm.

Will this help with negotiations? Possibly, but at what cost?

National Review’s Rich Lowry wasn’t quite as accusatory, but he did question Durbin’s motives and whether or not he really wanted to make a DACA deal happen. Perhaps he was just greatly offended. Then again, perhaps he was just being a politician. Here’s Lowry’s quote:

“Everyone seems to think that Durbin really wants a deal, which makes it weird that he has gone out of his way to blow up the s***hole meeting.”

Trump’s “Shithole” Comments, DACA & Political Fallout

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/455430/trump-shithole-comments-daca-political-falloutOne benefit of a merit-based system is that it would move us away from special ethnic pleading in immigration policy. The visa lottery began as affirmative action for Irish immigrants. My understanding is that Dick Durbin said in the meeting that he wanted to preserve the visa lottery in a slightly changed form because the Congressional Black Caucus wanted it. This is not how we should be making decisions about who comes here and who doesn’t.

Rand Paul defends President Trump’s sentiment

Rand Paul defends President Trumps sentiment

On an interview today with Chuck Todd, Senator Rand Paul defended the President’s sentiment in his infamous “s***hole” comment. While not defending the language, he noted that if the language itself had been more politically correct, the sentiment of what the President said was true.

He also turned blame on the media and Democrats for derailing immigration talks by focusing on the President’s comments.

“I do want to see an immigration compromise and you can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody’s out there calling the President a racist,” Paul said.

My Take

For the most part, the Senator is correct. This has become a distraction and a roadblock to important talks. The incessant desire to discredit the President has the rabid media keeping us focused on how the President talks rather than his actions.

Donald Trump and Jeb Bush: All you need is love (amnesty) to fix DACA

Donald Trump and Jeb Bush All you need is love amnesty to fix DACA

During the GOP primary season prior to the 2016 election, Jeb “Just Eliminate Borders” Bush took some heat from GOP conservatives—yes, Virginia, there used to be such a thing—for his Obama-esque position on so-called immigration reform and DACA.

Perhaps the greatest example of Jeb’s wrong-headedness on the subject was seen in comments he made to a group attending an event recognizing the 25th anniversary of his father’s presidency.

In response to a question on why he was so soft on the immigration issue, Jeb stated that these people had come to America illegally to provide a better life for their families and that they should be treated with “sensitivity” because their illegal actions were simply “an act of love.”

In the days following Trump’s Rescind-In-Name-Only DACA order, Jeb has shared his feelings with Trump multiple times on how he would like to see the $1 million-plus DREAMers taken care of—even calling on the New York liberal to “come to DACA’s defense.”

Of course, Jeb’s appeal to the president was unnecessary. Besides recent indications that he would trade his border wall for a DACA bill, Trump has made amnesty for DREAMers and making DACA permanent primary goals of his Ivanka’s administration. Still, it looks like Trump has embraced Jeb’s “love” approach to illegal immigration.

Calling the DACA fix a bi-partisan “bill of love,” Trump admitted in a meeting with Congressional leaders yesterday that his position on DACA will be whatever Congress tells him it should be. He agreed to sign any DACA bill brought to his desk because he has “confidence” that Congress will come up with something “really good” and he promised to “take the heat” from his base for his lie about ending DACA.

Of course, Trumps acceptance of the Jeb Bush policy simply confirms how Trump lied about fixing DACA, but with 2018 already an uphill slog for the Trumplican party, even members of the cult know that Trump’s DACA fixation is likely to do serious damage his administration.

But worry not, Trump cult. All is not lost.

In the meeting yesterday, Trump expressed his support for the return of Congress’s abusive practice of using “earmarks” in spending bills and called for their restoration as a way to build bipartisanship. The idea is already being worked on by the House Rules Committee.

At least he’s keeping his promise to drain the swamp. Right? On second thought, never mind.
