President Trump Hosts Law Enforcement Roundtable To Discuss Lawless Sanctuary Cities…

Earlier today President Trump hosted leadership from the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and national law enforcement officials to discuss the ongoing issues with Sanctuary Cities and immigration.


WHITE HOUSE – SANCTUARY CITIES ARE UNDERMINING LAW ENFORCEMENT: Sanctuary jurisdictions obstruct Federal immigration enforcement efforts and put law enforcement at greater risk.

A “sanctuary city” generally refers to a State or local jurisdiction that refuses to cooperate with Federal immigration enforcement, often by rejecting “detainer” requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and refusing to share information relating to potentially removable aliens.

  • Detainers are used to request that a State or local law enforcement agency hold a criminal alien in local custody for up to 48 hours after their release on state charges to allow ICE to take custody of the alien and initiate removal proceedings.
  • State and local law enforcement agencies routinely detain suspects for violating Federal laws at the request of federal authorities.
  • The Constitution and Federal statues allow for ICE to detain illegal aliens, and for local police to do so at ICE’s request, relying on ICE’s determination of probable cause.

Detainers themselves establish probable cause of an alien’s removability and it would be absurd to require ICE to obtain a judicial warrant every time it detained an illegal alien.

Indeed, Congress authorized immigration officers, rather than Federal judges, to issue administrative warrants to arrest aliens based on probable cause to believe they are in violation of the immigration laws.

♦If this was necessary under the Fourth Amendment, immigration enforcement would grind to a halt.

  • When sanctuary cities refuse to comply with detainer requests, law enforcement officers must carry out their immigration enforcement duties in workplaces, residences, and in the streets.

This can lead to ICE having to enter dangerous environments to arrest criminal aliens.
Some sanctuary city officials have gone as far as warning illegal aliens about upcoming immigration enforcement actions, allowing criminal aliens to prepare themselves and putting law enforcement, the public, and the aliens at even greater risk.

♦ENDANGERING COMMUNITIES: Reckless sanctuary policies endanger the safety of our communities and obstruct immigration enforcement actions which can prevent further crime.

Too many criminal illegal aliens have been released into American communities and gone on to commit crimes which could have been prevented had ICE been able to take the individuals into custody.

  • In 2016, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) arrested a criminal illegal alien for possession of cocaine for sale and other charges.
  • The individual had been deported three times previously and had prior convictions for similar offenses but was still released.
  • SFPD arrested the individual again in 2017 on charges involving the sale of narcotics, yet the city again refused to comply with an ICE detainer request and the individual was released.
  • SFPD arrested an illegal alien and alleged gang member more than ten times between 2013 and 2017 for charges including rape, assault, domestic battery, robbery, and vehicle theft.
  • On each occasion ICE’s request to have the individual transferred to their custody or receive notice before his release was denied.

A criminal illegal alien was arrested in Cook County, Illinois in 2011 for driving on a suspended license from a prior conviction for driving under the influence (DUI).

  • ICE issued a detainer request but the individual was released from jail and arrested less than a year later for aggravated DUI causing death.
  • Activists say sanctuary policies make illegal aliens feel safe enough to report crimes to police.
  • Illegally present crime victims and witnesses are eligible for certain immigration benefits, like the U-visa and T-visa, to encourage their cooperation in reporting crime.

♦IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT: President Trump’s Administration has and will continue to pursue strong immigration enforcement based on the rule of law.

President Trump’s Administration has taken action to ensure our Nation’s immigration laws are faithfully enforced.

The Department of Justice has filed a legal action regarding three California laws that intentionally obstruct the enforcement of Federal immigration law, regulate private entities that seek to cooperate with Federal authorities, and impede consultation and communication between Federal and State law enforcement officials.

During fiscal year (FY) 2017, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) made more than 140,000 administrative arrests and effected more than 225,000 removals.

  • From President Trump’s inauguration through the end of FY 2017, ERO made more than 110,568 arrests compared to only 77,806 in all of FY 2016.

However, more resources are needed to ensure law enforcement is able to do its job and enforce our immigration laws.

  • There are nearly one millions aliens in the United States with final orders of removal but not enough officers or resources to enforce the orders.
  • Many sheriffs have backed off of holding criminal aliens for fear of lawsuits.

        • Phil aka Felipe, notice the media psy op? They are using “blew the whistle” which nowadays are terms used for those who are highlighting wrong doings in an organization. How can it be “blew the whistle” by Oakland Mayor. if she is encouraging illegal activity? I think you can add couple of more charges. e.g. aiding and abetting in a crime(s), etc.
          Another question – why only Oakland Mayor? She used some sort of media / website to get that message out – I think they should also be charge with Obstruction of Justice, aiding and abetting in crime(s), etc.

        Absolutely agree with you. ARREST Governors, Mayors and others that legislate or support this illegal activity. California is NOT the only State violating American citizens’ safety and rights. In my State of North Carolina, we have Senator Thom Tillis who encourages ILLEGAL ALIENS!! North Carolina is riddled with illegals and I’m 100% sick of it.
        Hate to disagree with POTUS, but I worked in Texas for several months, and may as well have been in Mexico. There is no way I’d ever go back to Texas. WAKE UP CONGRESS!!!! Both sides of the aisle are to blame. Overstaying a visa may be a civil misdemeanor, but ENTERING the U.S.A. illegally is a criminal offense. I’m sick of the talk about “undocumented immigrants”. Horse manure!! That twisted phrase should never be heard from the mouths of officials.

      Why isn’t this mayor under indictment and removed from office? The lawsuit the DOJ just filed against her city will be months, if not years, in litigation. She is breaking federal law and endangering the lives of Americans. The lawsuit isn’t phasing her.

      We need our govt to do whatever necessary to keep our families safe. Those that obstruct that should be arrested.

      Colorado is trying hard to mirror California’s sanctuary status and is unfortunately gaining ground in that effort.

      The Denver sheriff’s office refuses to cooperate with ICE. Twice in the last two weeks they have failed to inform ICE they were holding known illegal alien felons. One caused a MVA resulting in the death of a truck driver who was burned to death inside his rig at I-25 and I-70. The victim was a family man, had just unloaded his trailer full of groceries at a chain grocery store and was headed home. The illegal alien responsible for his death was jailed with a $25,000 bond. Within a couple days he was able to post $2500 of it, ICE was not called until after he was on the street. He has reportedly now turned himself into ICE in hopes of simply being deported rather than face trial and prison time here.

      Within days, another illegal alien attempted to murder a Denver law enforcement officer, was sent to a medical facility for treatment as he was injured in the incident, was able to escape and remains at large.

      By contrast, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office which serves the Colorado Springs area, does cooperate with ICE, holding illegal criminals until ICE makes the determination of what happens next. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Dept lost a lawsuit that had been filed against them for cooperating with ICE agents. A federal judge ruled yesterday that the sheriff’s office can no longer hold criminal aliens until evaluation by ICE agents.

        I had not heard about this second story. About a yr. & 2 months ago a family man was killed at a light rail station in Denver by 2 guys, one of whom was illegal. He had been in the Denver jail for a robbery with an ICE detainer. The Sheriff’s dept. faxed ICE at 11:30PM that they were releasing him at midnight & he was let out 5 minutes early. So he killed within a week of being let out.

        It is beyond me WHY illegals are so important, that their families not be broken up, while Americans & their families are not. I can only hope these judges and elected officials get a chance to be subjected to losing a loved one up front and personally by an illegal. If karma ever gets here, she’s going to be a royal b***h!!

      Especially about the wall.

      Sessions has been talking about all of the criminal illegals he has been deporting, the number is in the thousands.

      We hear a lot about how Sessions is deporting the MS-13 gang bangers and other really nasty illegals.

      But I would bet that close to half of them are back here in the US now.

      It is just too easy to cross our very open southern border.

      Anyone and anything can come up here by crossing over from Mexico.

      Until we get the wall and close down the sanctuary cities a lot of Sessions hard work is futile.

    In Texas start from the North and go across the entire state at one time until they reach the border. Saturate that whole area and Texas will be fine with it, make it an operation with milestones and set-up best practices on how to remove illegals from an entire state. Arrange to have perimeter deterrents so neighboring states are not effected. Have Texas use the National Guard to protect the Texas border during this operation, and shut down the border until it’s complete.

    We can have border and ICE from Texas assist California when they do the same thing. All the way from the East side of California to the West (coastal). Have General Mattis/General Kelly design the loop arounds and tactics to remove as many of the illegals as possible.

    And then do it again. If California complains or causes problems, shut-down the border in California. No one in until there is cooperation. No air flights, treat them like hostiles.

      There is probably a constitutional problem with that because they are military. So put the military on the border and use the Border Patrol for doing the internal roundups with ICE and the US Marshall Service. The military is tasked by the U.S. Constitution with protecting us against “foreign invasions”. If they started using deadly force, the flow of illegals will drop off drastically without even enacting e-verify.

      § 1503 applies only to federal judicial proceedings. Under § 1505, however, a defendant can be convicted of obstruction of justice by obstructing a pending proceeding before Congress or a federal agency. A pending proceeding could include an informal investigation by an executive agency.

    In the days of the INS, the handful of deportation officers would venture out alone without a radio, in old beat up cars to take illegals into custody.

    When INS S/A Joseph Occhipinti started shutting down drug/human smuggling operations in NY, Federal Prosecuter Jeh Johnson put him in prison.
    19USC507 provides fines fines of up to $1000 for refusing requests for help by Customs officers. The assisting party cannot be held liable for civil damages as a result of rendering aid.

    The Rep. from Arizona is absolutely right about California!

    From the article linked above:

    More Californians are moving from the Golden State, particularly lower-income residents, although even middle-class residents are saying goodbye.

    The trend is a symptom of the state’s housing crunch and, for some, high taxes.
    Census Bureau data show California lost just over 138,000 people to domestic migration in the 12 months ended in July 2017.

    Lower-cost states such as Arizona, Texas and Nevada are popular destinations for relocating Californians.

Every kid saw these nuts, addicts, and drunks on the way in. And then, about 100 very fundamental muslims in full burkas with men and children went in as a school group ahead of us, with ZERO security of any kind. Remarkable?

    We have citizens breaking the law at every level of government – every level – with no consequence. It is time to start the law enforcement with those embarrassing citizens who defy our laws and lock them up and then enforce our immigration laws by deporting them out of the country.

    It saddens and sickens me to watch our elected and appointed officials not be aggressive in charging and trying all of these law breakers.

    Democrats commit atrocities…Republicans and conservatives file toothless lawsuits. And Democrats keep doing what they’re doing, with impunity.

    Republicans do something the people want, in keeping with the Constitution, and the Democrats file lawsuits that stop us in our tracks.

    How does that work?

    Saul Alinsky, Mr. Rules for Radicals (first edition dedicated to Lucifer) said that you destroy your enemies by breaking all the rules, but making your enemies follow their own rules.

    Somewhere very, very hot, Satan and Saul are slapping each other on the back, laughing their keisters off at

    But sooner or later, there will be a reaction. The only reason it hasn’t happened yet is that even after 8 years of Obama and 30 years of globalism, our lives are very comfortable in the USA. But there will be a trigger event, and when it happens, it will be ugly, ugly, ugly.

    In times past, violating a Federal law was serious business. The courts weee no-nonsense, the sentences harsh, the prisons could be brutal. So, there is a scene in that marvellous old movie Bad Day at Black Rock, wherein the hero, McCreedy, sends a telegram to the authorities, but the operator doesn’t send it, and shows it to the bad guy, Reno Smith. Doc Veile exclaims “you fool, that’s a Federal offense!”. The dramatic music spilled forth and the theater audience would groan.

    It’s time for this bull**** to end

    The left screams endlessly about “fascism”, as if somehow the ideals behind the rule of law, the safety of American citizens, the integrity of our voting system & the concept of representation of legal voters is fascism

    The left uses this charade as a way to degrade the system & gather power by illicit means

    They allow illegal aliens to vote thereby cancelling out the votes of citizens. They allow illegal aliens to roam our country with impunity while they put citizens at risk. They allow illegals to take our jobs while destroying the dreams & the lives of countless citizens

    Since they love screaming fascism so much, maybe they need a real taste of fascism so they can understand what it truly means

    The President should declare a state of emergency, an emergency of lawlessness which has put the country & it’s citizens in jeopardy

    Utilize the military & arrest every treasonous politician, police chief, judge & any & all bureaucrats who facilitate & enable this lawless chaos

    Arrest the ACLU minions & all the subversive lawyers who continue to attack the rule of law & make a mockery out of our justice system

    All of those people are feverishly working to undermine the rule of law, our sovereignty & our safety & trying to turn our country into a third world flop house so the globalist elite swine can rule supreme

    Those people should be arrested & prosecuted, & the teachers unions & media should be put on notice too. This country is owned by we the people & it’s ruled under the rule of law. This absolute usurpation, corruption & criminality will no longer be tolerated

    It’s utterly outrageous we put up with this. Without the rule of law, we’re nothing but a lawless banana republic & all the misery & chaos that goes with it

    They call the rule of law fascist? So be it. Let’s show them some big time fascism

    The more amoral people see crimes committed and laws not being enforced the more they are emboldened to believe they can disregard laws and commit crimes unpunished, and do.

    The Mayor of Oakland should have been visited and publicly questioned by Uniformed Federal Marshalls/ICE/CBP Agents. It should have made the News Worldwide.

    In her regard there exists no perception of enforcement and that invites additional lawless behavior endangering America.

    • If the U.S. does not have a wall to prevent those who are deported from returning at their leisure, it is like putting a bank robber in jail then leaving the cell door open.

      The deported illegal alien will come back to the U.S. if they want to and the bank robber will not stay in his cell if he doesn’t.

    No fight will be more fierce than the one to overcome the immigration travesty that imports thousands of new democrat voters into the country every year. Liberal must have these votes or their progressive plan for America falls apart.

    Democrats have become experts at providing ID and registering these illegals to perform at the polls. They will cry havoc and fight tirelessly for every last one, even if they are murderous felons or drug dealers. It’s up to us to scream louder and demand that citizenship be proven by every person allowed to vote in America. I should not be easier to vote than it is to purchase a gun.

      Since the commission investigating voting fraud was not getting adequate cooperation from the states, I think PDJT has tasked DHS to look into this. Wouldn’t it be great if in the next primary, that in those cases where the most criminal illegal aliens were registered to vote, that undercover ICE officers would be waiting at those polling place to take custody of those illegals to deport them. It wouldn’t take too many of these and people could be told that any illegals voting would be deported. This would surely greatly reduce the number of illegal aliens voting due to their fear of deportation. Once the illegals are no longer useful to the demonrat party, the illegals will be dropped like a hot potato.

    Maybe in sanctuary cities and states the feds should require a one million dollar security bond before turning over any illegal alien for local criminal prosecution (normally the libs let them go rather than turn them back to the feds). All defaulted bond money could go towards building the wall. The wall gets built or the pukes get deported and either way libtard heads explode at the dilemma. Any way would be a win-win.

    “California Proposition 187 was a 1994 ballot initiative to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using non-emergency health care, public education, and other services in the State of California. Voters passed the proposed law at a referendum in November 1994. The law was challenged in a legal suit and found unconstitutional by a federal district court. In 1999, Governor Gray Davis halted state appeals of this ruling.”

    Forward to 2018.
    It’s a completely different California. The good guys tried and lost in 94. Ironically California is now passing State laws supporting illegal immigrants that should be struck down by a Federal Court just as Prop 187 was if in fact States cannot make immigration laws. The sole jurisdiction of the Federal Government. Odds of that happening with todays politicians? Zero. Sad.

    I truly don’t understand why the government makes this such a big deal. The Rule of Law states that people who are in this country illegally are not allowed to be here and need to go through the proper channels to become legal citizens. If a state government employee, breaks the Rule of Law by harboring these illegal people, then LEO, by the Rule of Law can arrest these employees and prosecute them. Case closed, why do they have to sue to do their jobs??? I don’t get it? Why have laws if you have to go to a court of law to get permission to carry out the Rule of Law???? Please, somebody, explain this to me?????

    “Other California sanctuary laws have impacted the Border Patrol’s ability to locate illegal aliens, Scott says. One is Assembly Bill 450, a law enacted in October that, among other provisions, prevents businesses from granting border agents access to “nonpublic” areas of their property unless the agent has a judicial warrant.”

    You have to admire the tenacity of the Dems, they know how to fight, unlike the Republicans.

    There is just one little problem with their line of reasoning. Government gets its power through the consent of the governed. Any assault on a business owner’s consent, like telling them they are forbidden to consent to a search, is an assault on ALL people’s Right to consent. That would include the Right to consent to be governed.

    Imagine being told you may not consent to the government of your choice.

    Its time we create a Federal civil claim for victims of crimes by illegal aliens who had previously been in custody by state and local authorities when the had previouksy been subject to a deportation order or otherwise in violation of immigration law if the entity did not hold the individual and notify ICE. Treble damages and attorneys fees with no caps. Even the Oakland mayor would capitulate.
