This January, a law went into effect that makes all of California a sanctuary state. The move is a pathetic attempt to undermine President Donald Trump’s plans to protect America, and it puts California’s citizens at risk. However, ICE Director Thomas Homan had some strong words for the super-liberal state, and he didn’t hold anything back.

Sanctuary policy prevents local law enforcement from cooperating with federal agents. Specifically, it prevents them from holding onto criminals who are illegal aliens. Police are forced to let them go before ICE or other federal officers can apprehend them. It is a shocking violation of federal law. More than that, it jeopardizes the safety of every law-abiding citizen.
Liberal bastions throughout the United States have some form of sanctuary policy. Democrats love them because it protects illegal aliens. They are under the delusion that if they pander to illegals, they’ll vote for them. I’ll let that sink in. Yes, Democrats are that stupid and desperate.
These policies protect criminals. They put the interests of murderers, drug dealers, and rapists above citizens. Liberals don’t seem to mind.
Acting ICE Director Homan spoke about California’s new sanctuary status. He very plainly said it’s not going to stop the federal government. California “better hold on tight.”
Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan said California “better hold on tight” after its liberal Democratic governor allowed a sanctuary state law to take effect this week…
“I think it’s terrible,” Homan said, adding that Brown’s action put politics in front of public safety…
He said that rank-and-file police officers are opposed to the new measure and that Brown’s administration didn’t consult them before approving the law.
“If [Brown] thinks he is protecting the community, he’s doing quite the opposite,” Homan said. “[Brown] is knowingly putting law enforcement at risk.”
“There’s no sanctuary from law enforcement,” he said. “California better hold on tight – they’re about to see a lot more deportation officers. If politicians don’t protect their communities then ICE will.” [Source: Fox New]
ICE Director Thomas Homan is not mincing words here. Because of California’s new sanctuary law, more ICE officers will be in the state. Sanctuary laws only work if federal agents can’t get to the arrested criminals in time. ICE can conveniently circumvent the policy by having plenty of agents on the ground in CA.
This might seem like a petty response by Homan, but he, in fact, has no choice. Because of this terrible new law, California will become a magnet for criminal aliens, more so than ever before. Drug cartels, human traffickers, and other criminals will prioritize entering the U.S. through California simply because they know they are safer there.
Doesn’t that make you want to move to California right now? No one in their right mind would say yes to that.
ICE Director Thomas Homan has to send more agents to California because of the increase in danger. Legions of criminal aliens will flood the state because of Jerry Brown’s terrible new law.
Homan said illegal alien smuggling organizations will use the California law as a “selling point” and that Brown “bit off a lot more than he can chew.”
Homan said that Brown and other sanctuary-jurisdiction leaders may have violated 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – relating to “harboring certain aliens.”
He said he hopes the Justice Department will look into whether officials can be criminally charged under the statute. [Source: Fox New]
California does not know what kind of chaos it has unleashed. Every corner of the state will be in danger. Criminal aliens will exploit the region like never before. The state already struggles. It neglects needed infrastructure to support the free-loading aliens and criminals already. Imagine how bad it will get in coming years.
It’s a sad turn of events, for a once great state. Liberal lawmakers are driving California into ruin. What will it take for things to turn around? Will the conservatives, who are still left, be able to right the ship? Or will they smartly flee to greener pastures? Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain: Things are not looking good for sunny California or the slimy criminals whom they wish to provide sanctuary.
