Skip to comments.Thomas Homan: Here’s the truth about sanctuary cities
Posted on 06/17/2019 9:13:07 AM PDT by jazusamo
When I was the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, I often talked about sanctuary cities and how politicians who push them were dishonest with their communities. I often talked about how these jurisdictions are un-American, undermine public safety, put the public in harms way and make life harder and more dangerous for law enforcement.
Let's dissect the false narrative pushed by advocates for sanctuary policies.
We often hear that sanctuary policies enable victims and witnesses to report crime and communicate with police without the worry of being turned over to ICE and being deported. Other politicians say that sanctuary policies help to protect the immigrant community and those most vulnerable.
Another false narrative is that local police should not have to do federal immigration officers job by enforcing federal immigration laws.
Lets examine the false claim about protecting victims and witnesses. First of all, this doesn't make sense. ICE is not interested in identifying any victim or witnesses to crime. A sanctuary policy prevents ICE from accessing jails, and it prevents ICE from being notified when an illegal alien is released from a jail.
Unless the police arrest and book a victim or a witness, ICE would never know of their existence. If victims and witnesses are afraid to report a crime, it is because of the false stories pushed out to the public by pro-immigrant groups, NGOs and politicians who want to vilify and mischaracterize ICE.
If, by chance, a victim of a crime talks to ICE, they could actually become eligible to obtain legal authorization to remain in the U.S. as a victim. That is a fact you never hear anti-ICE groups acknowledge.

ALL law enforcement should be able to detain illegal aliens for deportation.
ALL illegal aliens should be deported.

“When I was the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ... I often talked about sanctuary cities ... and how politicians who push them were dishonest with their communities. “
I often talked about ... blah blah blah
Yeah everybody out here in the cheap seats have heard people “talking about” this bullshit 40 years and running. We know what the fvcking problem is, trust us. We’ve heard it described and dissected and analyzed and we know how it’s wrong in oh so many ways.
Why don’t you guys actually do something about it?
The one I have saved is readable, but it posted small .... thanx
Sad thing is this shows at one time Islam was headed to some sort of reform, morphing into a religion that could accomodate the modern world. That all changed with Carter caving on the Shah & the craven cowardly behavior of the European nations during the oil embargo & their retreat from supporting Israel.
The proper response in both cases was a “whiff of the grape” as Napoleon so well put it!
Afghanistan was even an “out-of-the-way” roughing it tourist spot!
Weakness in foreign affairs begets more weakness which begets more until we have what we have now!
I just don’t see what this guy actually accomplished to earn a promotion:
The picture works with Brooklyn 1972 and Brooklyn 2019 along with Minneapolis, Portland Maine and a host of other American cities.
Gotta love those boots!
Sanctuary cities are the equivalent of Gun Free Zones. They promote what they are trying to prevent.
Exactly, that’s a good way of putting it.
What is shows is a secularization of Islamic countries.
Ataturk did it in Turkey.
The Ayatollahs and mullahs taking them back is a reaction to the westernizing.
Islam doesn’t change.
It has always been a religion of conquest and slavery, murder and mayhem.
>Why dont you guys actually do something about it?
A: Govt isn’t there to ‘SOLVE’ any issue(s)\problem(s)
A: It’s not what their $-changer masters want(ed)
A: ‘Doing *something* would likely implicate them & theirs\party
A: DOING something can be quantified and We the People would therefor expect (other/more) ‘results’ in the future; or be held accountable for the lack thereof (last part less so, too many party plantation zombies just continue pulling the same f* levers election after election)
They were Islamic countries they were secularizing so it & they were changing.
But thanks for playing!
the principle of separation of the state from religious institutions.
That is unIslamic.
Islam was pushed aside, it is now reasserting itself.
So is this guy going to work for the admin or become a fox contributor?
But did you ever talk about the laws the City and State officials were breaking and promise to arrest them? Didn't think so.
There were some videos of Pakistan floating around recently showing ceremonies when it first gained independence—looked like a modern country moving forward proudly. Now it’s just another backwards Islamic sh!th*le.
Comments were interesting, mainly Pakistanis wishing they were still in the old days under British rule.
