After living in the Southwest most of my life and even attending graduate school in California, I have been thoroughly convinced that the Golden State is the land of nuts, fruits and flakes.
These days, I’ll socialists and traitors to that list of descriptions of California.
Democrats who run the state have been doing everything possible to strip away many of the constitutional rights of American citizens living there.
At the same time, they have gone out of their way to protect over 3 million illegal aliens who are taking over entire areas of the state.
Now, it’s being confirmed that California officials are protecting over 5,000 illegal alien criminals wanted by ICE.
The National Sentinel – Confirmed: California is protecting over 5,000 illegal alien criminals by refusing to hand them over to ICE – Reiterating its proud status as a sanctuary state for criminals, California is back in the news for harboring and protecting illegal aliens that otherwise would be lawfully detained and deported – as they should be – by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Reports indicate that over the past 27 months, California has refused to honor a whopping 5,600 ICE detainers – these being the holds that ICE agents file to local jails and police to request the turnover of illegal aliens for arrest and deportation.
Of these 5,600 refused ICE detainers, more than 3,400 of them involved illegal aliens classified as “level 1” and “level 2” offenders, meaning these individuals were found guilty of committing serious crimes like kidnapping, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, fraud, illegal drug activity, and homicide…
Where is the logic from California’s leaders who go out of the way to not only protect illegal aliens and illegal alien criminals, but to give them more benefits and aid than they give to legal American citizens?
Where is the logic from the state’s leaders when they make it a crime to use a plastic straw while protecting illegal aliens?
Personally, I believer that every elected official and law enforcement official that protects illegal aliens should be arrested and charged with violation of federal immigration laws, obstruction of justice and obstruction of the duties of federal law enforcement officials.
