First, from Los Angeles, and the double-down from the police chief, Charlie Beck, that his officers would not deport illegals from his sanctuary city, no matter what Donald Trump says. Now this, from the highest governing official in Chicago, none other than Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Trump be hanged, we’re staying sanctuary, too.
His statement, according to the Chicago Tribune, upon being asked if the city would turn aside its sanctuary policy in the face of a new Trump administration deportation demand:
“‘To all those who are, after Tuesday’s election, very nervous and filled with anxiety as we’ve spoken to, you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago,” Emanuel said. “Chicago will always be a sanctuary city.’”
What is going on in the minds of liberals who think standing up to Trump and letting in illegals, some of whom will undoubtedly commit crimes against America’s citizens, will go over well with the voters?
Trump has vowed, as recently as in a Sunday interview on “60 Minutes,” to build a wall along America’s southern borders and to deport illegals who’ve committed crimes in this country.
But leftists like Emanuel, along with Beck, as previously reported here, put personal agenda before safety – despite the fact they’re both in the business of upholding the safety and security of the American individual.
From Fox News:
“Emanuel didn’t address any of Trump’s campaign promises directly, but this was the most he’s spoken on the immigration issue as he tries to bolster support that had sharply decreased with the handling of the Laquan McDonald police shooting investigation.
“‘Now, administrations may change, but our values and principles as it relates to inclusion does not,’ Emanuel added. ‘People from all faiths, all backgrounds and all parts of the world have beaten their path to the city of Chicago because Chicago offers them and — more importantly, as the son and the grandson of an immigrant — their children and grandchildren a chance at the American dream.’
Emanuel had urged any immigrants who are fearful of their legal status to contact the city’s 311 center to get information about legal resources and other programs.
Contact the city? That’s not just passive resistance to law. That’s aiding and abetting. And Emanuel, like the rest of his anti-Trump leftists, ought to be held to account for any criminal activities that result, via illegal against citizen.
