Kimberly Morin reports that it should come as no surprise that New York City’s Socialist Mayor Bill De Blasio is sheltering criminal illegal aliens in the city, but he’s taking it a step further to claim ICE agents will be storming schools.
In a press conference on Tuesday, De Blasio spoke about “immigrants” as if illegal aliens were legal immigrants. He’s holding meetings to tell illegals their “rights” and also made specific plans regarding schools if ICE agents attempt to go after an illegal alien in a school. When asked, he admitted that’s never happened.
“We think it’s crucial to fight for all New Yorkers and to help immigrant New Yorkers to know their rights,” De Blasio said. “This is your city. Your city will stand by you.”
De Blasio detailed a few ways the city plans to assuage parents’ fears and resist ICE. His office, he said, will be instructing school employees to understand what to do in which ICE agents appear at a school. The agents, he said, will be kept outside the school buildings and schools will not share information with them unless required by the law.
“They can’t blow by our security,” De Blasio added. “They have to follow our rules.”
If agents do obtain a warrant, they will be permitted to enter the school, but they will be closely monitored by school security.
“ICE agents will not be wandering the halls of a school,” the mayor promised.
According to de Blasio himself, ICE agents have never wandered the school but that doesn’t seem to make a difference. de Blasio is just placing bets on his extreme left wing support.
It doesn’t matter to him that ICE is looking for criminal illegal aliens and not legal immigrants. By using the term “immigrant” he’s making legal immigrants believe ICE will be coming after them as well.
Of course, lying is part of the game with people like de Blasio. Not to mention that he’s protecting criminal illegal aliens who have committed crimes against actual New Yorkers, both native and legal immigrants.
When will actual citizens realize they are being played for fools and their own safety is being put on the back burner for politics?
