D.C. Mayor Orders Police Not to Check Immigration Statuses, Even in Arrests (Sanctuary city)
Fox News ^ | October 19, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 10/19/2011 3:46:33 PM PDT by jazusamo

The nation's capital has officially become the latest safe haven for illegal immigrants.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray on Wednesday signed an executive order instructing police officers not to question people about their immigration status -- even people who are arrested on other matters -- unless immigration status is directly related to a criminal investigation.

"This executive order ensures public safety by ensuring that our police resources are deployed wisely and our immigrant communities feel safe cooperating with those who are sworn to protect them," Gray said in a statement.

"The district is home to thousands of immigrants," he added. "If they are afraid to cooperate with authorities on criminal investigations because they fear it might endanger their presence in the United States or the presence of a loved one, then it endangers their public safety and that of our entire city."

Although district officials say the order only confirms a longstanding policy, critics still blasted the move.

"This is an abomination," said Corey Stewart, the Republican chairman-at-large of Prince William County of Virginia, which is about 25 miles south of D.C...

Mitt Romney has to love that!

He had a sanctuary mansion as Governor and he can have one IF(he won’t) becomes President.

That’s got to be exciting for him.

Wonder how the permanent underclass is dealing with the new underclass? In NJ the newcomers are displacing the “established urbanites”; cities are increasingly electing Hispanic governments as their numbers dwarf the “old-timers”.

Romney is against sanctuary cities and states. He signed a 287 g agreement while governor. Is it really necessary to slam a Rep because DC has decided to flaunt federal law?

The longer we go fenceless (as in FULL fence) the easier it is for Democrats to pull this crap and get power from it.

Cut off the Democrats supply of illegals to manipulate to their advantage and you cut off their power. And no, a ‘strategic fence’ is not the answer. That just results i Democrats playing games with the non fenced areas.

And before another closet liberal says it, Provide in detail the scientific/engineering reason we ‘cannot’ build a fence. China did one a thousand years ago that still works today. It’s a matter of willpower. We have enough to do it or we do not. Period.

Just a guess but I'm figuring a lot of illegals were driving with expired tags.

Yep, looks like the Liar-In-Chief wants to put all those revolving door illegals in D.C. now.

I’d say you’re probably right from the looks of the article.

Purpose of FR and why we can never support Mitt Romney
vanity | Oct 15, 2011 | Jim Robinson

Posted on Saturday, October 15, 2011 1:51:20 PM by Jim RobinsonEdited on Saturday, October 15, 2011 1:54:20 PM by Jim Robinson. [history]

Our purpose and goal on FR is to restore, defend, preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States and to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity!!

The goal of the domestic enemy (the left), i.e., the statist liberals, Marxists and progressives is just the opposite.

The goal of the establishment RINO is to gain control of political power, but not to otherwise rock the boat. The boat continues taking on water and listing sharper to port every time the left takes over, but the unprincipled RINOs do absolutely nothing to right her when they get a chance. In fact, the RINOs actually tack on plenty of their own unconstitutional baggage when they're in power and so our ship of state today is in pretty bad shape.

RINO Romney is one of the worst. We can thank him for being the chief architect of ObamaCare, which if we cannot get overturned and repealed, will finally accomplish the left's major objective of shredding the final remnants of our tattered constitution and ending our God-given Liberty forever (they think).

The liberals believe our constitution is a flawed document written in a different time for different circumstances by rich old racist white men and no longer applies to today's circumstances. They're now even trying to promote the idea that the constitution was never intended to limit or restrict the powers of government.

Like hell! That was and is its primary intent! And we who have sworn an oath to defend it, will defend it--from all enemies, foreign and domestic!

And that's FR's purpose and reason for being.

Romney may be a Republican, and that's questionable, because he's violated nearly every plank in the Republican party's official pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Family, pro-Constitution, pro-Liberty platform, but he's definitely no conservative. In fact his record is that of a statist liberal progressive. And he's a total fraud to boot, with a nasty habit of lying--about everything. He'll do and say anything if he thinks it will help him get elected. He's a two-bit, unprincipled political whore.

Here's Romney's record on some of our primary issues of concern compared to Obama's:

Issue: Obama Romney
Pro-Abortion check check
Gun-grabber check check
Gay rights check check
Gov forced healthcare check check
Tax payer funded abortion check check
Man-made global warming check check
Liberal judges check check
Liberal appointees check check
Ted Kennedy pal check check
Proven liar check check
Fraud check check
Liberal Progressive check check
Enemy of Reagan/Bush check check
Enemy of the tea party check check
Enemy of Liberty check check
Defender of the Constitution no no
Conservative no no
Works across the aisle no yes
Architect of ObamaCare no yes
Domestic Enemy check check
Useful idiot check check

All of the above plus much more is documented in the RomneyTruth files on FR. Click the RomneyTruthFile keyword at the top of the main page. Also watch the "New Romney Campaign Video" also linked at the top of the main page. Watch it all the way through. I even saw some clips I'd never seen before. Pretty damning stuff for anyone running for president as a Republican.

Let's face it folks, the elite establishment RINO corps hates the tea party, hates conservatives, are afraid and even ashamed to have us identify ourselves as Republicans, feel we are dangerous extremist, racist, bigoted bible thumping, gun-toting, flag-waving neanderthals. The tea party is the best thing to happen for America since 1776 and our tea party candidates are the best thing for the GOP since Ronald Reagan, but what do the elite establishment RINOs do? They declare us the enemy! They went after Sarah Palin and some of our other tea party candidates with bared fangs and talons. Karl Rove and company were and continue to be as nasty and shameless on the attack as the nastiest lying liberal. Sarah Palin was the most exciting new face in GOP politics in a century and would have been a landslide 57 state victory over the corrupt, lying Marxist/progressive Obama. But the good ol' boys, i.e., the elite establishment corrupt crony capitalist GOP bastards could have none of that. Instead, they've opted to go all in with a corrupt, lying statist/progressive of their own: Willard (the Rat) Romney.

Well, good luck getting the Rat elected without the committed grassroots, pro-life, pro-constitution conservatives or the majority of the tea party.

FR, for one, will not play that game. NO MORE RINOS!!

No Romney. NOT ON FR!! NOT ON MY WATCH!!

 

JR made this list and I agree with it.

This one isn't smart enough to realize he just gave his own murderers the upper hand.

It isn’t relevant to the subject of this thread. I form my own opinions. I don’t wait for a memo to tell me how to think. At this point, I support Bachmann.

You're absolutely right, Gray is corrupt turkey and dumber than a box of rocks, can't believe he's still mayor and not in prison.

Former mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown says he struck a job deal with Vincent Gray campaign

You brought up picking on a Republican so I gave you the list.

I don’t need a memo either but I am glad a few people have compiled a list of reasons against.

I am down with a hottie for President and wish the press would stop monkeying with the picks.

My top picks are Michelle, Perry, Santorum and Cain. Not necessarily in that order but I won’t be disappointed with either.

Newt is the smartest one above all but his core is vapid at best. He should play a supportive role in the next administration.

Thankfully, my crazy uncle will be fully retired next year.

“.....then it endangers their public safety and that of our entire city.”

Their presence alone endangers public safety. BUT, they are needed for Obama votes.
