WATCH: Sen. Menendez Says Illegals Who Commit DUI Are Not Criminals

Huh?

Published

on

Step outside of reality with me for a minute, and enter the world of the Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), where there is no such thing as a law, especially for illegal aliens.

Menendez made this position very clear in a CNN segment with Wolf Blitzer on Monday night, arguing that President Donald J. Trump is the bad guy for – get this – enforcing border laws and prosecuting crimes committed by illegals.

“If you cross the border undocumented, [Trump] has now made you a criminal,” Menendez said. “If a person has a driving while under the influence (DUI) violation, he is now making that, saying that’s criminal.”

The context of the interview was a discussion about why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities are overpopulated. Menendez apparently thinks that it is because Trump is inventing crimes with which to charge illegals. It has nothing to do, of course, with the fact that illegals are here illegally, and that they often commit further crimes while here.

“Because he tears children away from their mothers and puts them all in detention facilities, he has an over-demand as a result of his policy, so it’s his policy that’s driving this,” Menendez said later.

Menendez and his Democratic compadres turned a blind eye to this policy during the Obama administration. Now, this policy is everything that is wrong with those xenophobic Republicans, led by Trump.

Blitzer made no attempt to challenge Menendez’s lunacy.

One thing is clear from the interview: New Jersey is not sending its best to Congress.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

on

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
