California’s Governor Jerry Brown signed multiple laws making California an illegal sanctuary state for illegal aliens, including Senate Bills 54, 29, 68, 156, 257 and Assembly Bills 21, 291, 299, 343, 450, 699. American and especially California citizens now know on which side are California’s politicians and government, and it is not the side of citizens nor the law.
In Los Angeles, 95% of outstanding warrants for homicide were for illegal aliens. Los Angeles city officials revealed their sanctuary legal defense fund has more than $7 million, seven times that of Chicago’s fund. Nationwide, illegal aliens are 3 times as likely to be convicted of murder as members of the general population. In Florida, 40% of all murder convictions were illegal aliens. At various times, 250,000 illegal aliens were serving murder sentences nationwide. ICE reported that illegal aliens released by Homeland Security during the Obama administration accounted for 64,000 crimes, including assault, kidnapping and homicide. Illegal aliens accounted for nearly 75% of federal drug sentences in 2014. Yet Washington D.C. has promised to go ‘beyond sanctuary’ city status, using taxpayer funds to actively oppose a crackdown on illegal aliens.
The US Supreme Court upheld key parts of Arizona’s tough immigration law, SB 1070 and in another historic case (Texas vs United States) halted a key Obama administration amnesty of 5 million illegal aliens. Another court case revealed that the Obama administration released 36,000 illegal aliens in 2015 who were previously convicted of homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping and aggravated assault.
Sanctuary policies reward criminality thus encouraging the legal, moral and judicial breakdown of the rule of law in the USA.
