The Illegal-Alien Crime Wave (Rudy defied law---ordered NYPD not to notify INS of alien crimes)
Former mayor Rudolph Giuliani sued all the way up to the Supreme Court to defend the citys sanctuary policy against a 1996 federal law decreeing that cities could not prohibit their employees from cooperating with the INS. When advisors cautioned against it, "Oh yeah?" responded Giuliani, "just watch me. " The INS, Rooty claimed, with what turned out to be grotesque irony, only aims to terrorize people. Though he lost in court, he remained defiant to the end.
On September 5, 2001, Giuliani's handpicked charter-revision committee ruled that New York could still require that its employees keep immigration information confidential to preserve trust between immigrants and government. Six days later on 9/11 several visa-overstayers participated in the most devastating attack on the city, and the country, in history.
New York conveniently forgot the 1996 federal ban on sanctuary laws until a gang of five Mexicansfour of them illegalabducted and brutally raped a 42-year-old mother of two near some railroad tracks in Queens. The NYPD had already arrested three of the illegal aliens numerous times for such crimes as assault, attempted robbery, criminal trespass, illegal gun possession, and drug offenses. The NYPD had never notified the INS.
CONCLUSION Rooty doesn't govern----he "rules" like a tinhorn dictator. Rooty's sole concern was his political ambitions----to suckup to illegals fraudulently registered to voter. Rooty's trampling the US Constitution and ignoring the US Rule Of Law is so typical of the discredited 1940's-era utilitarian doctrine: "the ends justify the means."
