Homeland Security Looking Into Pressing Charges Against Leaders Of Sanctuary Cities

The Feds VS. The States.

If DHS can make just one case stick the rest will fold like a cheap suit.

 

 

DHS preparing to arrest leaders of sanctuary cities

 

 – The Washington Times – Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.


 


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.

Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.

Mr. Homan repeated that demand in an interview with Fox News earlier this year, setting off a firestorm of criticism.

  1. DHS can arrest whoever they want. But just as LEO arrest but refer to a DA to prosecute so too must the DHS refer to the Just Us Department to prosecute. After Obama and his minions Holder and Lynch spent eight years packing that Department with liberal commie sycophants the odds of anyone there actually holding an elected official accountable for violating a federal law they don’t like approach zero. As an elected official it’s nearly impossible to be punished for malfeasance or for ignoring laws you don’t like. Steal and you might be charged and tried. Commit a violent crime and you probably would. Use your position to advance your personal political goals and agenda?
    No problem. If the Just Us Department actually held people who did that accountable the entire government apparatus would dissolve practically overnight.

  2. This illegal immigrant situation can be fixed really quickly by the Left themselves. Instead of arguing against kicking illegals out, why doesn’t the Left SPONSOR an illegal immigrant, taking responsibility for them to become a legal U.S. citizen. It becomes a non issue – legal immigrants I have little trouble with. Its the complete disregard for U.S. laws which I have a problem with.
