New York prosecutors are patting themselves on the back because they are set to announce charges against 96 MS-13 gang members who were operating in Suffolk County.
Authorities plan to make the announcement during a press conference today, and they have declared that MS-13 is now “inoperable” in the state of New York.
That is certainly good news, but it begs the question: Why were they ever operable in New York in the first place?
One reason could be the hostility toward federal immigration enforcement by the state’s Democratic leaders. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sent a letter to ICE in 2018 threatening them with lawsuits if they continued targeting illegal immigrants inside his state.
“We believe ICE is violating the law,” Cuomo said during a press conference. “We’re going to put them on notice today, if they continue, the state will sue them. Period.”
Cuomo also signed an executive order in 2017 to protect illegal immigrants from being asked about their status by law enforcement in most cases.
“As Washington squabbles over rolling back sensible immigration policy, we are taking action to help protect all New Yorkers from unwarranted targeting by government,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York became the Empire State due to the contributions of immigrants from every corner of the globe and we will not let the politics of fear and intimidation divide us.”
Right now, Democrats in the state of New York are leading the charge to make New York a sanctuary state, which would open the floodgates for illegals to operate with complete impunity.
The sanctuary legislation introduced in the Assembly reads: “This act will ensure concerns about public safety, which is the primary concern of local law enforcement, is prioritized above concerns of immigration status, which is a uniquely federal responsibility.”
Republicans are pushing back, but because the demographics have shifted to the point of where New York is permanently a blue state, they have little recourse to stop the sanctuary insanity coming down the pike from the Democrats.
“New York Democrats won’t be happy until they abandon every basic rule or law that governs our nation and protects our citizens,” Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb said in a statement.
“The sanctuary state proposal is just the latest example of political posturing that should be kept far away from public policy. The liberal mindset is so skewed, that even though New York’s residents and businesses are leaving in droves, they prefer to focus on people who are in America illegally,” he added.
While New York authorities celebrate what the fake news is describing as “the largest take down of the violent street gang in New York State history” today, it will not be hard for MS-13 to rebuild their influence with the state’s weak immigration laws that are only continuing to weaken with the Democrats in charge.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus
Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.
President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.
The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.
“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.
Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.
“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”
Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”
During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.
“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.
“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.
The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.
“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.
Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
