You might read such headlines out of comic books! But we, the citizens of America who elect governors, mayors and city council members to uphold our laws---instead---see those elected officials embrace lawlessness.
New York Mayor De Blasio defends illegal aliens along with Governor Cuomo. Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver and Governor John Hickenlooper created sanctuary cities to defend illegal alien murders, rapists and robbers—all over Colorado. The governor protects them from arrest.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel defies federal laws by protecting all illegal migrants in the "Windy City" that now boasts the "Murder Capital of America" as its biggest accomplishment.
Along with those corrupt elected officials who swore on a Bible to uphold the U.S. Constitution, State Constitution and all laws of America, we face over 240 sanctuary cities across the United States that harbor criminals, rapists, killers and shoplifters. They protect anchor baby mothers who illegally birth their children on U.S. soil at our expense into the billions of dollars at 350,000 of them annually, year after year, decade after decade.
This month, "Eight hundred criminal illegal aliens avoided arrest in Oakland, California because Mayor Libby Schaaf gave Bay Area residents a 24-hour notice of pending ICE raids," according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan.
"She gave them warning, and there's 800 that we were unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been," Homan said. "I watched her statement where she says her priority is the safety of her community. Well what she did had the exact opposite effect."
"I'll say this to the mayor and every other politician that wants to vilify the men and women of ICE: We're not going away. We're going to keep enforcing the law."
National Sheriffs' Association Executive Director and CEO Jonathan Thompson publicly denounced Schaaf, saying her warning to the illegal aliens, most of whom are priorities for removal, put city residents and ICE officers in danger.
"This is just another example of a California politician playing politics with the safety of the community," Thompson said. "What the Mayor is doing is dangerous and reckless. By alerting the public of the operation, she gave known criminal illegals safe harbor which ultimately put the people in that area, as well as law enforcement, in danger."
What confounds me: the brazen disregard for American citizens! Our elected officials defend and protect lawlessness and people illegally residing and working in America in violation of our laws.
Tipping point! Have you heard of that term? It equates to "that point where an individual, entity or organization chooses to succeed or fail by its actions. Once that point is reached, the entity thrives or perishes."
One of the most important lessons I learned in my travels through third world countries: corruption becomes a mechanism by which third world countries operate. It becomes entrenched. Once that happens, it takes a revolution to dislodge corruption.
Today, in California, corruption and third world conditions control the situations of their failing schools, their loaded prisons, their illegal workforce, their failing infrastructure, gridlocked highways, failing hospitals and ER wards. A whopping 50,000 people live on the streets of Los Angeles in tents and tarps. Their human waste and filth degrade the streets to third world conditions. Responsible Americans flee California as fast as the moving vans will extricate them from the area.
Remember why Detroit, Michigan dropped from 1.85 thriving Americans to its present number of 648,000 "refugees" today, and most of those arrived as Moslem immigrants. Detroit can no longer boast that it's an American city. It features almost more foreign born than native born Americans. You see more Moslem black flags and virtually no Stars and Stripes. Thanks to the U.S. Government.
Again, in Chicago, Illinois, corruption controls everything in that lawless city where Rahm Emanuel houses in excess of 500,000 illegal alien migrants. Their schools face utter chaos daily with rampant illiteracy, and gangs flourishing. Flunkout and dropout rates set records annually. Drugs spread like the bubonic plague. Deaths by opiates scream across the streets. Because of the loss of the rule of law, Chicago boasts being "The Murder Capital of America."
We, as a people, and as a country must ask ourselves: would we rather live by the rule of law and law enforcement, or do we want to become a nation of Detroit's, Chicago's, Los Angeles', New York City's, Miami's, Minneapolis' and worse?
You discover the answer in the 240 sanctuary cities that protect and defend lawlessness. You discover that Americans in those cities don't care enough to participate and/or change those cities to law-abiding entities.
If we all keep "not caring" or "not getting involved", we will find ourselves at the tipping point of becoming a third world country where corruption and lawlessness continues as the norm.
