Loretta Lynch was asked about sanctuary cities yesterday during a House hearing. She pretended she was unfamiliar with the law and said she didn’t know if the DOJ was outlawing sanctuary cities. She is a liar who doesn’t follow the law she is the nation’s top law enforcement officer. Listen to her pretend she would enforce laws if a case comes up.
Former Assistant Director to the FBI Jim Kallstrom said we shouldn’t only be worried about refugees, we should be looking at sanctuary cities[…]
An administration of liars. Somehow I expected better out of Attorney General Lynch.

Voter ID laws have been challenged because liberal Democrats deem them racist. I guess that’s because they see blacks as being incapable of acquiring some kind of government-issued identification. Interesting enough is the fact that I’ve never heard of a challenge to other ID requirements as racist, such as those: to board a plane, open a charge account, have lab work done or cash a welfare check. Since liberal Democrats only challenge legal procedures to promote ballot-box integrity, the conclusion one reaches is that they are for vote fraud prevalent in many Democrat-controlled cities.
Prepare yourselves for one heck of a ride, America. The Democratic Socialists are just getting started.

Senator David Vitter’s effort to challenge the “Sanctuary Cities” in Louisiana, as well as other states, was killed violently in the Senate. In a 54-45 vote against the legislation the Democrats (and some stupid Republicans) have decided “Sanctuary Cities” are more important than the safety and security of the residents of those specific cities.
Vitter pushed the legislation since a San Francisco woman was allegedly murdered by a man in this country illegally. It was determined the suspect was a repeat illegal entry offender with a long criminal record and multiple prior deportations. The legislation would have also denied such cities some federal funds.
Marjorie Esman of the Louisiana ACLU said: “A lawsuit to challenge an illegal detainer is by definition not a frivolous lawsuit. If somebody is detained illegally, their rights are being violated and they need somebody…
Today the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers is taking the opportunity to provide the press, the American people and the United States Congress our view concerning current legislation circulating in the United States House of Representatives based on our hundreds of years of on the job collective experience as retired United States Immigration Law Enforcement Officers. Being retired we are not constrained in giving our frank assessment of issues germane to Immigration Law Enforcement.
In a word Sanctuary Cities is a cancer eating voraciously away at the rule of law in hundreds of jurisdictions throughout the United States. The concept itself is contrary to existing law and should not have been allowed to take hold in the first place. That there is a sudden rush to do something is not surprising. It is unfortunate that many United States Citizens have died unnecessarily because of sanctuary city policies. However, that result was predictable.
As Immigration Law Enforcement Officers working throughout the United States and in foreign countries we relied on statutory law as tools in protecting America from a broad assortment of undesirable threats from aliens and citizens that intentionally sought to break our Immigration Laws. In response to what we perceive as a current rush to do something we must counsel that the zeal to address the situation may in fact not provide America’s Law Enforcement Community with the tools that they actually need to sufficiently address the broad scope of pressing problems associated with sanctuary cities. Curing this cancer will require specialized treatment.
Our senior membership and board of directors have read and highly recommend to all Americans HR-1148, The Davis Oliver Act, which has already passed out of the House Judiciary Committee before any other current or future legislation is brought to the floor of the House of Representatives. The Davis Oliver Act provides the tools that American Law Enforcement Officers need to reclaim and secure our nation’s streets and communities. Davis Oliver is the best available Rx for this disease.
Our paramount mission is to contribute to the security and stability of the United States. To that end, we shall propose and be advocates for immigration laws and policies that we believe serve those national interests, and we will oppose those that do not.
