In recent years we’ve seen Democrat-run states and cities move to protect illegal immigrants from federal immigration officials. Yes, you read that correctly. It is a classic state law versus federal law conundrum costing the lives and quality of life of legal citizens.
California has declared itself a “sanctuary state” meaning that you can cross the American border illegally and be protected from consequences in their state. New York and other states have passed similar measures.
But it’s not just illegal immigration that top Democrats rally behind.
Facts show that prominent Democrats have taken official action to protect murderers, rapists, and other violent criminals.
For example, Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney has petitioned a local judge to allow his city to continue ignoring federal law and protecting illegal aliens from deportation. One criminal under the mayor’s protection is Juan Ramon Vasquez who has entered the U.S. illegally on multiple occasions and has been convicted of raping a 5-year-old child. He has been charged with other related crimes according to Philly.com.
Several years back, illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate fired a handgun which killed Kate Steinle. She died in her father’s arms. Zarate had been released from prison in the months prior to this act only because San Francisco’s Democrats refused to turn him over to federal law enforcement officials. All of this was according to NBC. News.
Lastly, Air Force Veteran Marilyn Pharis was murdered by an illegal alien. Victor Martinez, 32, raped and beat to death Pharis, 64, in her home early one morning after she returned from work. Martinez was allowed out of prison and on the streets only because local Democrats ignored federal law. They didn’t notify federal officials on the day Martinez was released from jail. All of this was reported by RedState.com.
Pharis served to protect our freedoms and laws but was betrayed by Democrats also sworn to uphold the same freedoms and laws. Illegal immigrants find themselves shielded in these sanctuary cities, counties, and states at the expense of the rights of citizens.
Many cities controlled by Democrats are protecting murderers, rapists, and other criminals from our federal immigration officials. Top Democrats continue to refuse to denounce such “sanctuary policies.”
Dozens, if not hundreds or thousands of examples like these exist over the past few decades. Illegal aliens taking advantage of our country’s lawlessness in order to prey on American citizens.
If you haven’t supported the idea of a border wall, examples like the ones above should change your mind.
Unfortunately, I think it is fair to say the Democrats enable criminal behavior. This dims our light as a lawful nation and simultaneously weakens those foundations giving us our freedoms.
And even if you think that is too strong, we can probably agree Democrats are being derelict in their duty to uphold the law protecting legal citizens. Americans needlessly suffer from the hands and actions of those whose first relationship with our nation is breaking the law. It is called illegal immigration, remember?
Hopefully, Democrats will wake up to the pain they are inflicting upon their own citizens and constituents.
