MORE POLITICAL ACTIVISM FROM A CALIFORNIA JUDGE NAMED “WHO THE THIRD”
William H. Orrick, III, (AKA WHO The Third), a longtime donor to the DNC, who pretends to be “judging” each case and accurately applying federal law, has yet again proven he is little more than a political hack for the Open Borders Crowd. Anything The Left wants, The Left gets from WHO The Third.
Ignoring Federal Statute 8 U.S.C. 1373, which requires jurisdictions who receive federal dollars TO OBEY FEDERAL LAW AND COOPERATE WITH FEDERAL AUTHORITIES, Orrick demands that sanctuary cities & counties receive federal tax dollars, regardless.
President Trump has said that sanctuary cities put Americans at risk by refusing to hold immigrants who have been arrested or convicted of serious crimes until immigration agents can take them into custody and (maybe) deport them.
This “judge” issued an injunction this week to permanently block Trump’s executive order to deny funding to cities that refused to cooperate with federal immigration officials.
WHO III’s ruling comes in response to a lawsuit filed by the City of San Francisco and nearby Santa Clara County and follows a temporary halt on the order that the same “judge” issued in April.
SHOULD WE LAUGH OR CRY?
If one doesn’t laugh over such court-sanctioned lawlessness, one is forced to confront reality. The reality is:
Oregon, 2017: The reality is, if the City of Portland were not welcoming and protecting illegal alien criminals, two Portland women would not have been raped last summer by a Mexican illegal with NUMEROUS felonies who had been caught and released due to Portland’s sanctuary policies.
The State of Oregon became a sanctuary state earlier this year. In addition, 29 or Oregon’s 36 counties have declared that illegal alien criminals are protected from deportation if they move there.
California, 2015: The reality is, Kate Steinle would still be alive today if the County of San Francisco had not protected her Mexican murderer from ICE. The County Sheriff denied ICE’s request to detain him until they picked him up. California has 16 Sanctuary Counties plus the City of Los Angeles.
Nebraska, 2016: The reality is, with four times the legal limit of alcohol in his system and no driver’s license, an illegal alien from Honduras, a so-called “dreamer,” hit and killed a recent college graduate. The City of Omaha refused to hold the driver for ICE to pick up, and quickly released him on bond. That was over a year ago and he has not been seen since.
And the list goes on and on and on.
The latest statistics (2016) compiled by the Center for Immigration Studies reports there are currently 11,800 illegal alien CRIMINALS (this doesn’t include the tens of thousands of illegal aliens who have NOT committed serious crimes) being protected by 300 sanctuary jurisdictions. This writer believes there are far more who enjoy sanctuary in the U.S.
OBAMA THREATENED TO WITHHOLD FEDERAL MONEY FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS
ALL federal tax dollars come with strings attached. When accepting money from the Feds, state and local governments AGREE to comply with federal statutes. They are not FORCED to take this money.
Last year, Obama threatened to withhold Title 8 funding from public schools if they did not allow boys into girls’ restrooms & locker rooms. Where was “WHO The Third” then?
Where was WHO III some years ago, when Montanans were driving on potholes for lack of federal highway dollars? Montana was denied federal highway dollars, after the state refused to lower the speed limit to keep the Feds happy.
SANCTUARY JURISDICTIONS ARE RUN BY DEMS: GIVE ME, GIVE ME, GIVE ME
True to their greedy Liberal nature, these sanctuary jurisdictions, all ruled by Dems for decades, are demanding that they get the federal money SO THEY CAN continue protecting illegal alien criminals. The City of Chicago is even suing to get YOUR tax dollars so they can protect illegal aliens from the Rule of Law, instead of protecting law-abiding Americans.
The Trump Administration had enough respect for the sanctuary jurisdictions to give them advanced warning: the ongoing violation of federal law will result in rejection of certain applications for federal funds, pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1373. Period!
Put in layman’s terms, months ago President Trump said: “Listen up! Just because you have been running roughshod over your law-abiding citizens for years doesn’t mean you can do so in the future without consequences.”
Cooperate with Immigration officials IF YOU WANT FEDERAL DOLLARS to help you ENFORCE THE LAW. Period. Very easy to understand.
U.S. SUPREME COURT WILL AGREE WITH TRUMP
When this asinine ruling makes its way to the highest court in the land, it WILL be thrown out, and the president’s Executive Order will prevail. In the meantime, how many Americans will be harmed by illegal alien criminals being protected by jurisdictions run by Americans-hating Democrats?
