The sanctuary state of California refused 5,600 requests by federal immigration officials over two years to turn over criminal illegal aliens, state data finds.
In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) Executive Director Dale Wilcox revealed that within a 27-month period, the state of California had failed to honor about 5,600 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers which are the holds ICE agents file to local jails and police to request that an illegal alien be turned over to them for arrest and deportation.
Of these 5,600 failed ICE detainers, more than 3,400 were lodged against an illegal alien who had been classified “level 1” and “level 2” offenders — meaning that these illegal aliens had been charged with crimes like homicide, kidnapping, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, drugs, and fraud.
“The bottom line is, sanctuary cities are neither humane or compassionate,” Wilcox told Breitbart News Tonight. “They’re dangerous policies that cost Americans lives … what will it take for these anti-borders politicians to wake up and put the safety and security of their citizens, their legal residents before the interests of criminal aliens.”
About 250 of the ICE detainers not honored had been filed to Napa County and Sonoma County law enforcement officials. These two California counties had sanctuary city policies before the state’s statewide sanctuary policy.
The 5,600 failed requests by ICE to have criminal illegal aliens turned over to them came before California enacted their statewide sanctuary policy, where all local jails and counties are prohibited from cooperating with federal immigration officials.
IRLI researchers said records after the passage of California’s sanctuary state policy are likely to show an increased number of cases where local jails and law enforcement officials refused to turn criminal illegal aliens over to ICE.
As he says, this is neither humane nor compassionate. Nor is it fair to honest, tax-paying citizens. It is an absolute travesty that a state as rich in resources and natural beauty as California has been overtaken by demons who have absolutely zero concern for their constituency in their quest for more power. This is nothing more than a way to get more votes. Plain and simple. And likely far more sinister intentions by the very higher-ups to destroy America by sowing derision amongst groups who all have different interests in mind. Multiculturalism and godlessness kill Western civilization, both of which are in abundance in California. And the globalists get their voting bloc. It really is the only way to keep up, as most of their policies are not broadly supported by anyone. Nor should they be. Importing foreigners to take over and ruin a country they had no hand in creating while simultaneously literally killing babies is a Satanic platform to run on. It is no surprise that over half of California residents wish they could leave. Get out while you can.
