The Obama administration went to great pains to hide the epidemic of criminal activity of illegal aliens that he was returning to the streets to continue their crime wave. President Trump says that all stops here and now. Rather than hide the crimes committed by illegals, the White House will release the names and crimes of illegal aliens on a weekly basis so that people will know them real extent of the problem.
“To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.”
The list will also include information such as when the criminal was free due to a sanctuary city such as the killing of Katie Steinle after San Francisco refused to honor a detainer from ICE. I’m personally in favor of arresting mayors, police chiefs and city councils as accessories to any crimes committed by illegals aided by the unlawful act of sanctuary cities.
President Trump framed the issue like this:
“When it comes to public safety, there is no place for politics; no Republicans, no Democrats, just citizens, and good citizens. We want safe communities. We demand safe communities for everyone.”
Besides the enormous costs illegal immigration imposes on taxpayers, Americans pay the price when an illegal alien allegedly shoots their daughters in broad daylight or fatally hits them in a car accident, as happened to the families of Kate Steinle and Sarah Root, both of whose killers were protected by sanctuary policies.
During a Wednesday speech, Trump named the deceased children of the Angel Moms, who lost children to illegal alien crime, assuring them that they will be prioritized, not the open borders lobby.
“To all of those hurting out there, I repeat to you these words. We hear you, we see you and you will never, ever be ignored again,” he said.
The order is also an outmaneuvering of the press, which hushes up illegal alien crime. Journalists and prominent liberals reacted angrily Twitter, comparing it to Nazism in one instance.
