ICE Warns Illegal Aliens: California’s “Sanctuary State” Law WILL NOT Protect You…

California became the first sanctuary state last week, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not care.

ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said his agency had “no choice” other than to apprehend illegal aliens in California work sites and neighborhoods despite Gov. Jerry Brown signing the sanctuary legislation.

The new law takes effect on January 1, 2018 and bars authorities from asking people about their legal status and prevents law enforcement from cooperating with the feds on immigration.

But Homan warned that the law might encourage illegal aliens to flock to the state.

“Ultimately, SB54 helps shield removable aliens from immigration enforcement and creates another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect,” he said in a statement on the ICE website.

Brown issued a statement when he signed the law on Friday that conceded the law does not prevent ICE from operating in his state.

“This bill does not prevent or prohibit [ICE] or the Department of Homeland Security from doing their work in any way. They are free to use their own considerable resources to enforce federal immigration law in California,” Brown wrote, according to the Los Angeles Times. “[T]his bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.”

People living in fear every day? People like Kate Steinle who was killed by a criminal illegal alien in California?

But if Brown thought his state’s law was going to stop ICE from enforcing immigration laws, he is mistaken.

“Despite the severe challenges that this law creates for ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all sheriffs and local elected officials. This misguided legislation will severely undermine those efforts,” he wrote.

    U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report August 2017

    October 9, 2017

    By David Olen Cross

    The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

    The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is explicitly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

    Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from August 26, 2017.).

    Inmate Citizenship:

    – México 25,255 inmates, 13.5 percent;
    – Colombia 1,695 inmates, 0.9 percent;
    – Dominican Republic 1,522 inmates, 0.8 percent;
    – Cuba 1,234 inmates, 0.7 percent;
    – Other / unknown countries 9,458 inmates, 5.1 percent;
    – United States 147,271 inmates, 79.0 percent;

    Total Inmates: 186,435 inmates.

    To clarify the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

    Combining August 26th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 39,164 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 21.0 percent of the federal prison population; more than two in every ten inmates were criminal aliens.

    With 25,255 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 64.5 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

    The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 13,598 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 7.8 percent of the federal prison population.

    An urgent wakeup call to all American citizens, eventually the majority of these criminal aliens from México, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries will be released from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons after completing their prison terms.

    The country of Mexico, America’s neighbor to the south, is both historically and literally a land bridge of many frequently unsecured trails, roads, highways and railways used by persons trying and far too often successfully illegally entering our country.

    United States citizens should, if they haven’t already, contact their members of the U.S. Congress (two Senators and one Representative) and tell them to support President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to build a wall (fences and technology) along the U.S. border with Mexico to stop the threat of tens of thousands of criminal aliens, once they are released from the federal prison system and deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to their countries of origin, ability to illegally return to this nation and harm its citizens and residents.
