Local elected officials continue to celebrate a preliminary injunction blocking Trump’s new “public charge” rule for immigrants seeking to enter the country or obtain a green card. [READ HERE for deeper insight on the injunction] Still no mention of the two teens recently murdered after sanctuary policies protected their killers and released them back onto our streets. They also ignore the recent stabbing of a man on the light rail, repeat attack of a rape victim, and countless other lives destroyed because politicians are more concerned with safe harbor for non-citizens than protecting the Americans who elected them.
In short, the proposed rule incorporates consideration of public welfare reliance to better ensure that aliens do not depend on public resources to meet their needs, but rather rely on their own capabilities, as well as the resources of family members, sponsors, and private organizations. Unsurprisingly, Washington AG Bob Ferguson filed a lawsuit over the proposal, alleging that the Rule was “motivated by Administration officials’ intent to discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin.”
The silence from these incredulous, self-congratulating Democrats regarding the recent horrific attacks by criminal aliens is despicable. So today we remember some of the recent victims of sanctuary policies and provide you with a detailed timeline revealing just how hard your politicians are working to ensure that criminals who are here illegally have just as much a right to thrive in the lawless, Seattle decriminalization experiment as anyone else.
April 23, 2019 – King County Executive Dow Constantine signed an Executive Order effectively banning deportation flights chartered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from Boeing Field. Constantine even told private contractors that if they fuel or service the ICE planes, they will lose county contracts.
“Here in King County, we are a welcoming community that respects the rights of all people. My Executive Order seeks to make sure all those who do business with King County uphold the same values.” – Dow Constantine
Detainees are now bused to Yakima at your expense – a two hour trip that is ironically a major source of carbon emissions something we pointed out the other day that Dow doesn’t really care about anyway.. On July 17th, Yakima officials struck down an effort to ban ICE flights from their airport.
May 29, 2019 – King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced $5.6 million will to the Expanded Seattle-King County Immigrant Legal Defense Network to provide taxpayer-funded legal services to immigrants and refugees at risk of deportation.
Perhaps that money should be put into a fund for the growing list of American victims and their families instead of providing legal defense for their foreign attackers? Just an idea…
