Mayor of NYC Bill De Blasio has maintained that the city he runs will remain a ‘sanctuary city’ despite any rulings from the Department of Justice.
However, it appears that the NYPD is not going along with that. The Department recently contacted ICE about detainers on two illegals who were to appear in court recently, contrary to de Blasio’s desired Sanctuary City policy.
As reported by Fox News:
The NYPD reportedly alerts federal immigration officials to illegal immigrants’ appearances in criminal court despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vow to remain a sanctuary city.
New York City has vowed to only alert immigration officials if an illegal immigrant is accused of a violent crime.
An NYPD administrative aide noted that ICE was contacted about the arrest of David Gonzalez, 51, on March 2 and Milton Chimborazo, 35, on March 15, the Daily News reported. Gonzalez, who had been previously deported, was facing misdemeanor charges for allegedly rubbing up against a woman on a subway train, while Gimborazo had a standing deportation order and was facing a burglary charge.
Why are they even allowing ANY illegal who commits a crime to remain illegally in the country with ‘sanctuary?’ If that person is found guilty of a crime, they should serve their time and instantly be deported.
Or maybe just instantly be deported; but keeping criminal aliens in this country, whether the crime was violent or not, is actually hurting this country. American taxpayers are paying for the police, courts, prisons that are arresting, trying and housing these criminal aliens if they are allowed to stay.
How exactly is that HELPING the United States?
No one is saying, and neither is Trump, to run out and grab all illegals in a sweeping door-to-door campaign. ICE is specifically looking for criminal aliens only.
But Left wingers like De Blasio would rather protect criminals than the citizens of his own city.
