No Sanctuary for Citizens
Tevya is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Saturday, March 10, 2018. Our wise friend, Wasp Tevya, is at the breakfast table this morning. Tevya has illegal immigration and the growing list of sanctuary cities and states on his mind. He is preparing Butternut Squash Muffins for breakfast this morning, hoping that all the Poppers will join him. Make Tevya a happy camper and arrive at the table as quickly as possible. I'd leave the door open, but these days I fear for my safety.
Illegal Immigration is not a Game
Thanks so much for coming to breakfast this morning. A strange and dangerous phenomenon is sweeping our nation, and it is placing all of us in danger. Mayors and Governors are taking it upon themselves to defy federal immigration laws and protect dangerous criminals from ICE officials. It is impossible to defend their actions. ICE is not going after "illegals" who are working hard and hoping for a way to remain in this country. ICE is, however, going after hardened criminals who have committed heinous crimes. Politicians across the country are determined to keep rapists, murderers and drug dealers safe. They are not at all concerned with the safety of America's families. I can't wrap my head around this sickening development no matter how I look at it. Can you?
A Broken Promise
A sanctuary city is a municipal jurisdiction that has decided to willfully limit their cooperation with the federal government's efforts to enforce immigration law. They prohibit police and city employees from questioning illegal immigrants suspected of committing crimes. California is in the news at the moment, but the appalling truth is that there are over 300 U.S. jurisdictions including states, counties and cities that offer sanctuary to anyone here illegally, even if they have just murdered the girl next door. Have we lost our collective minds? It is apparent that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has lost her marbles. She warned illegal aliens that an ICE raid was about to happen. All the rapists, murderers and drug dealers took cover and evaded ICE. The victims of these felons were just preyed upon again, This time the perpetrator was Mayor Schaaf. Her actions not only endangered the citizens of Oakland, but they endangered law enforcement as well. For that matter, her actions endangered you and me, because criminal illegal aliens are free to move about the country. With so many sanctuary jurisdictions across the nation, their safety is ensured. You and I are not so lucky.
You Are Invited
An Invitation to Harm
We have always had strong immigration policies in place. Sadly, prior administrations chose to ignore the laws, and now we are all suffering the consequences of lax or non-existent law enforcement. The Trump administration has decided to end this madness once and for all. President Trump has promised us a wall. He has promised us safety from illegal alien criminals. He, clearly, is a man who keeps his promises, unlike politicians in Congress who are doing everything possible to stall progress. They drag their feet and people like Kate Steinle die. How long can we allow this insanity to continue? If the Trump administration is to succeed in this area, Congress must act. Sadly, Congress takes forever to accomplish anything, so it will be up to ordinary citizens to push them to finally do something meaningful with regard to immigration and sanctuary jurisdictions. H.R. 4760 is a bill that would allow the administration to withhold funds from sanctuary cities. It would also allow individuals to sue local governments when they are harmed by aliens released by sanctuary jurisdictions. I would like to see an addition to H.R. 4760 that would allow people like Mayor Schaaf to be subject to arrest and imprisonment. This citizen bug says, "Bring it On."
Dear God, you made so many liberals
It isn't a crime to be a liberal
But it's no great honor either.
