ICE Chief Names and Shames the Four Worst Sanctuary Cities in U.S.
One can only imagine how often and how tightly Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, had to hold his tongue when serving under President Obama. We’re betting he nearly bore a hole through it, given how obviously enthusiastic he is about his new boss in the White House. At every opportunity, Homan (along with Homeland Security chief Gen. John Kelly) demonstrates that he is on the exact same page as Donald Trump when it comes to reversing Obama’s lawless immigration policies and restoring order to a country that badly needs it.
As such, Homan is plainly disgusted with cities that aren’t going along with the plan. And in an interview with the Washington Examiner this week, he was as clear as he could be about jurisdictions that harbor illegal immigrants from deportation.
“Sanctuary cities, in my opinion, are un-American,” Homan told reporter Paul Bedard.
Of those cities, which number in the triple digits, Homan said that four were the worst: San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York City.
“In the last year, I’ve read all these stories of how the crime rate has exploded in Chicago, and the president’s trying to help them,” he said. “We’re stepping up our game in Chicago. Is Chicago doing everything that it can to decrease the criminal activity up there? I say no. I say no because if you’re an illegal alien, and you get arrested in the United States for a crime, and you get booked in Cook County, Chicago, my officers aren’t allowed in the jail. They don’t accept our detainers. They don’t share information with us.”
Homan said that the other sanctuary cities were no better, and that all of them were a danger to the nation.
“These jurisdictions, these cities, are choosing to shield people who violated the laws of this country that committed a crime against this country; they’re going to shield them,” he told the Examiner. “So, what’s next? Sanctuary cities for people who don’t want to pay their taxes?”
But we seriously wonder what the hell is wrong with the people in these cities who support Democrats. How can you, the taxpaying citizen, vote for politicians who are out there promising that they will harbor and protect illegal immigrants? Not just illegal immigrants, but illegal immigrants who have committed a crime, been arrested, and are occupying the city jail? Why would you want politicians to go out of their way to put these people back into your own community? It defies logic, and it just goes to show you how diseased and malfunctioning the liberal brain really is.
