POLIZETTE — The term “sanctuary” conjures up an image of a place of serenity, refuge, and safety. Therefore, one would expect that a “sanctuary city” would be a city that creates a place of serenity, refuge, and safety for its residents. Under the current meaning of “sanctuary city,” nothing could be further from the truth.
America’s “sanctuary cities” are municipalities in rebellion, refusing to abide by the law and allowing illegal aliens, including dangerous aliens with criminal records, to run free without fear of being detained for their illegal immigration status. Over 40 Democrats in the U.S. Senate voted Wednesday to protect these cities from the rule of law by blocking a bill put forward by Sen. Patrick Toomey that would have cracked down on these hotbeds of lawlessness.
Let us now consider just how safe and secure residents of sanctuary cities are and who is actually being provided with safety and refuge in those jurisdictions.
sanctuary cities were established by mayors and other politicians to shield aliens illegally present in the United States. The foe these illegal aliens allegedly need protection from is detection by the immigration law enforcement personnel whose mission is to secure our nation’s borders and enforce our immigration laws.
Our immigration laws were enacted to protect America’s national security and to protect the lives and livelihoods of Americans. These laws are utterly and totally blind as to race, religion, or ethnicity.
