Chicago - a sanctuary city, too

Isn't Chicago a sanctuary city?

Read this article about a presumably-Mexican, 7-time felon, 5-time deportee who alleged killed a 32-year-old white-collar female resident of San Francisco.

Read about the screw-up between the San Francisco PD and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's ICE division.

Remember, this could happen in Chicago (or Cicero or Evanston). These are Illinois' three sanctuary cities, according to Steve Salvi, Founder of OJJPAC is the Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC.

How many sanctuary cities are there in the U.S.? Take a guess. Get a pencil and paper and write down your guess. Do it! Are sanctuary cities only major cities?

Now, if you want to read something that ought to really "boil your oil", go to "The Original List of Sanctuary Cities, USA."

Count them. You'll probably give up before the end of the list. Surprised?

I was pleased not to find even one in S.C.

You'll love the first sentence in the article. "Despite a 1996 federal law [the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA)] that requires local governments to cooperate with Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), many large urban cities (and some small) have adopted so-called "sanctuary" policies."

Ask yourself: How is it that many cities (large and small) can thumb their noses at this federal law, yet continue to receive federal funding?

Do you know what the policy is at the McHenry County Sheriff's Department, Crystal Lake PD, Woodstock PD, Harvard PD? If you live with their jurisdiction, find out!

The CPD is forbidden by General Order from even contacting ICE when they arrest an illegal alien. And believe me, there are plenty of them living in Chicago. I could identify the areas in which they are living but the list would be too long for this blog. As far as cities like Chicago thumbing there noses at the federal law, who will investigate or charge them with anything? Holder,Lynch? Obama? Don't hold your breath. Look at some of the comments Preckwinkle has made about how law enforcement arresting too many black or brown people. Look at that idiot of a Sheriff Tom Dart (and I do mean idiot with a capital I)and review his comments about this matter.
