Don’t give them a trial. Just shoot ‘em.
SACRAMENTO,being Sanctuary city the mexican drug cartels can operate with greater freedom with Sacramento,not wanting to offend anybody by being in the city persons illegally from another country, in Sacaramento the cities hands are tied with the race card being used to get out of being charged with crimes. And it provides many defenders and supporters who will argue it is not about the drugs,but about racial profiling.Many of these cases will be dropped or charges reduced to keep everyone happy.They will resume where they left off. Sanctuary cities shield and protect llegals
All good respectable potential Republican voters, I’m sure.
Yep, all Anglo-Saxons in good standing there.
