Sanctuary city illegals have committed tens of thousands of violent crimes July 13, 2015

For those in the Church who support the “sanctuary city” initiative, perhaps they would like to explain why it is such a good thing to have a program that keeps tens of thousands of violent felons on the loose in this country when the vast majority would have been otherwise deported. Perhaps our bishops can remind us again of the great virtue of utterly unconstrained immigration over the southern border – which the strongly advocate – even at the cost of tens (by now, hundreds) of thousands of violent crimes committed against American citizens by illegal aliens.

This is one the sides of amnesty you don’t often hear about:

What seems to have been overlooked in the back and forth on this is some of the very disturbing, actual data on crimes committed by illegal aliens, which should concern every American—particularly those who live in sanctuary cities like New Orleans or San Francisco that release criminal aliens rather than turning them over to the Department of Homeland Security.

As Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Study outlines, Department of Homeland Security records show that in just one eight-month period in 2014, more than 8,100 deportable aliens were released by sanctuary jurisdictions. Three thousand of them were felons and 62 percent had a prior criminal record. Nineteen hundred were later rearrested a total of 4,300 times on 7,500 different offenses.

Thus, these sanctuary policies directly victimized thousands of the residents of these sanctuary cities who were subjected to assaults, burglaries, sexual assaults, thefts and even murders that would not have occurred except for these sanctuary policies……..

……..The second GAO report (GAO-05-646R), released on May 9, 2005, looked at the crimes committed by 55,322 aliens who “had entered the country illegally and were still illegally in the country at the time of their incarceration in federal or state prison or local jail during fiscal year 2003.”

The path of destruction weaved by these 55,322 illegal aliens was truly shocking. According to GAO, these criminal aliens:

  • Were arrested a total of 459,614 times, averaging about eight arrests per illegal alien;…..
  • Out of all of the arrests, 12 percent were for violent crimes such as murder, robbery, assault and sex-related crimes; 15 percent were for burglary, larceny, theft and property damage; 24 percent were for drug offenses; and the remaining offenses were for DUI, fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, weapons, immigration and obstruction of justice; and
  • 80 percent of the arrests occurred in just three states: California, Texas, and Arizona…….

If the over 134,000 aliens released by the administration in just the past two years follow the pattern of those aliens studied by the GAO in 2005, they will commit hundreds of thousands of more crimes, victimizing countless innocent Americans in crimes that could have been prevented.

Indeed, they will commit nearly 20,000 violent crimes – in addition to all those crimes committed by felons protected by the numerous sanctuary cities in the US.

Here’s another less than pleasant statistic – nearly 10% of all fatal DUI collisions involve an illegal resident of the United States.

If you take the statistics together, far more Americans have been killed by illegal aliens over the past few years than have died in 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But because the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, US Chamber of Commerce, large corporations, a good number of very wealthy individuals, and the demonrat party all believe their interests served by cheap foreign labor and and unconstrained immigration environment, that is what we shall get, the will of the people be damned, in this “last, best hope for freedom and democracy.”

Just keep telling yourself that.

“when the vast majority would have been otherwise deported.”

I stumbled on that phrase in the first sentence. I have read that the whole deportation thing for illegal aliens is a joke. The accused has a first hearing and then told to come back in a few days for the final verdict hearing. You can guess what happens. I just do not thing we have anything we could call proof that anyone is deported back to Mexico. Maybe there could be sufficient proof on a few people but I would like to read or hear more about that.

I understand that GAAT, NAFTA and CAFTA all make it extremely difficult if not outright legally impossible for Mexico to export their corn and other products to the USA. I would like to know exactly what economic impact that had on the poor farmers and farm workers in Mexico, but if poverty was as profoundly increased by that as I imagine it was, I say in Christ’s eyes it is fine for a person to sneak into the USA to have a chance to survive.

But of course, probably what is happening in the sanctuary cities, and mine is one in Texas, is as you describe it and does not meet the description of being desperate to survive.

There is one other thing you do not mention but there appears to be a policy by our federal and state governments and “elected representatives” of all political parties to use mass illegal immigration of Mexicans and Central and South Americans, and people of other feeder countries

I am only slightly aware of the young lady who was killed by an illegal alien, repeat offender, wielding a gun, while she walked on a pier in San Francisco with her father. But a couple of things occur to me.

First…is not San Francisco one of those places with very strict laws which abridge the Second Amendment? So how come it is this sort of thing happens in a place with strict gun-laws? Are gun laws not intended to make this sort of thing difficult if not impossible? Is this some sort of evidence of the failure of gun laws to prevent this sort of thing?

Second…am I not witnessing a real silence on the part of those who typically make a big “gun” issue out of this sort of thing? If so, where is the outcry about “gun violence” in this case? What is different about this case that would make that group of people silent? Is it the fact that this criminal was an illegal alien in a city where illegal aliens are recruited? Might it be that “gun violence” says everything about the perpetrator and nothing about the means used, and that to single out the perpetrator in this case is not the politically correct thing to do? Could it be that the real story is not about guns, but about a city that violates the Constitution on the one hand while openly defying immigration law on the other?

Well Dismas, I suggest you saunter over to the HH that is Mark Shea’s facebook page and pose that very same question. Expect to get banned.

The USCCB if fanatically opposed to enforcement of the already lax US immigration laws. Why? The situation is similar in Canada, Europe, and Australia. In Europe most illegal immigration is from Muslim countries, but most of the local bishops insist this is a wonderful enrichment, when anybody with half a brain knows from personal experience that it is an unmitigated disaster.
Here is a concrete example; Cardinal George Pell when he was archbishop of Sydney Australia, was asked his opinion of Muslim immigration to Australia. He said he welcomed it as it would present ample opportunities for inter-religious dialogue. Really!! Christians in Syria and Iraq would have plenty to say about that!
What planet is Cardinal Pell from? He is now lauded as one of the pope’s handpicked ‘intellectuals’. If that lightweight is an intellectual, what does it say about his brother cardinals.
