Soros Funding Philly Pro-Sanctuary, Open-Borders District Attorney Candidate
A group named Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety has filed a political committee registration ahead of the city’s Democratic primary election for district attorney, and it is being funded by none other than George Soros.
The group is planning to back civil rights attorney Larry Krasner in the race, who has vowed that he would never pursue the death penalty in any case and will keep Philadelphia a “sanctuary city.”
While the globalist billionaire is not named in any of the paperwork for the group, the address they list is for DC law firm Perkins Coie, which Soros-backed PAC’s have used as a front address in other states, Philly.com reports. The treasurer of the group is Witney Tymas, who has served in the same role for other Soros organizations.
The candidate has an entire segment of his platform titled, “Resist the Trump Administration.” The section outlines his plan to “protect immigrants,” “reject the drug war,” and “stand up to police misconduct.”
“As District Attorney, he will work to maintain Philadelphia as a ‘sanctuary city’ and protect the Fourth Amendment rights of all residents, cooperating with federal authorities only to the degree required by law,” Krasner’s website states. “Because legal proceedings can affect the status of immigrants and therefore relations between communities and law enforcement, Larry will take those effects into account when making prosecutorial decisions and setting prosecutorial policy. He will oppose renewal of ICE’s access to the PARS database, a city police database used by ICE to identify ‘deportable’ immigrants.”
In February, other organizations funded by Soros teamed up with Democratic attorney generals to file over a dozen lawsuits against the Trump administration in relation to his executive order to temporarily halt immigration from terrorist hot spots.
Soros’s Open Society Foundations, a pro-open borders and pro-globalization advocacy organization, also financed several non-profit organizations that filed lawsuits against the order.
Among the groups Soros financed who filed lawsuits against the administration were the National Immigration Law Center, who he handed $4.6 million and the Urban Justice Center, which also has an organization called the International Refugee Assistance Project, who received $621,000.
“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep US ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America,” Matthew Vadum, senior vice president of the Capital Research Center, a Washington think tank that investigates nonprofits, told LifeZette at the time the lawsuit funding was revealed. “Soros has said he wants to bring America down. Flooding the country with Muslim aliens who won’t assimilate is one way to do that.”
