Sanctuary or No, Local Officers Still Helping ICE

On March 1, we reported, by way of KOAT News, that officials of the county in which Albuquerque, New Mexico, is located had proclaimed that henceforth no ICE agents would be permitted access to county inmate records.

Police Chief: End Sanctuary

The San Diego Police Chief Eddie Garcia denounced California’s sanctuary policies which protect illegal alien criminals from deportation. He stated, “This isn’t about politics, this is about public safety.” He made his statements in reference to a case involving the arrest of an illegal alien for stabbing a 59-year of woman to death. Because of the sanctuary policy, the suspect–with a long rap sheet–was not turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for deportation after previous arrests.

Brooks: Elites Don’t Care about Working Americans

“I’m not a part of the Masters of the Universe crowd who thinks we ought to be bringing in all this foreign labor and the reason for it is pure economics. . . .

“And to the extent you import a lot of foreign labor, then you are artificially increasing the labor supply which in turn means that you’re artificially suppressing the wages of American families who are often hard-pressed to make ends meet So I respectfully disagree that we need more foreign labor, to the contrary, I would like to see us reduce the foreign labor that comes into America so that American families who are struggling to make ends meet, particularly those of us who are earning the least amounts, would be better to take care of their own families and less likely to be dependent on the welfare.”

Power Play: House Dems Support Illegals Voting

Echoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks earlier this week, the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday voted in favor of localities’ permitting illegal aliens to vote.  A resolution by the Republican minority  to condemn the practice failed 228-197, a vote that went largely along party lines with only six Democrats voting with the Republicans.  A similar …
