    Visconti Seeks RICO probe in Sanctuary Cities

    Breaking News - Visconti Seeks RICO probe in Sanctuary Cities

    CWP News - Immigration News
    Written by Visconti for Congress
    Saturday, 20 September 2008

    Connecticut's 1st Congressional District Republican candidate Joseph Visconti Saturday called on the US Attorney's office to launch an investigation into Hartford and New Haven's Sanctuary City designations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

    Speaking on the steps of the New Haven City Hall where Mayor John DeStefano fired 35 city employees Friday in a cost-cutting move, Visconti said, "Mayor DeStefano is refusing to protect the health, safety and welfare of this city's legal residents."

    "I have spoken to the US Attorney's office for New Haven and Hartford and will ask them to begin an investigation under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. We believe an inquiry under this statute will result in indictments against the mayor of New Haven as well as many other groups and individuals."

    Visconti said the devastating impacts of illegal immigration on American society are self-evident in New Haven. "Today, the equivalent of a platoon of New Haven city workers is enduring its first day of unemployment. These people lost their jobs, and now face an uncertain future because the mayor of this city decided it was more important to provide sanctuary for people who are here illegally, than to live up to his oath of office."

    "The city of New Haven is tens of millions of dollars in debt due to the strain that illegal immigrants have placed on city services. Legal workers are losing their jobs, and the social services budget can not possibly keep up with the influx of new claims resulting from the Sanctuary City designation.

    "And Hartford is next! This is criminal."

    Visconti revealed that he has had preliminary discussions with representatives of the US Attorney's office and believes a RICO investigation is the preferred avenue to address the nation's illegal immigration problems.

    "The mayor of New Haven has clearly been breaking federal immigration laws and celebrates his accomplishments today. He has conspired with like-minded individuals, groups and not for-profit agencies. He is deliberately and intentionally inviting foreign criminals into our country and into his city."

    Visconti was one of several speakers who attended a Community Watchdog Project rally on the steps of New Haven City Hall. The group has been fighting the Sanctuary City designation for New Haven. The group estimates that New Haven has spent more than $71-million in taxpayer money on education and social services for the estimated 15,000 illegal aliens living there since DeStefano signed the Sanctuary City designation in December 2006.

    Addressing the claim that the bulk of the illegals are workers doing jobs that Americans won't do themselves, Visconti said, "As a General Contractor I see it every day skilled construction workers seeking jobs while illegal construction crews are brought in to perform carpentry, framing, roofing, drywall, painting and many other jobs."

    "These are not jobs Americans don't want. These are jobs my crews want; the kind of jobs I want."

    Visconti said illegal immigration has become a critical issue in America because the Congress refuses to address it honestly. This situation is a direct result of "the inaction and failures of elected officials like Congressman John Larson and Rosa De Lauro, as well as Senator Chris Dodd."

    "This City Slicker Mayor took it upon himself to break federal law for political purposes, because he knew full well his Congressmen and Senator would allow it and, we must assume, have condoned it. Our Senators and Congressmen talk endlessly, but accomplish nothing. It is up to us as citizens of the United States to use our own laws to our advantage."

    "These federal office holders represent the Democratic leadership of the United States House of Representatives and Senate, and the example they set is one of lawlessness and anarchy. We will demand federal indictments under the RICO Statutes against those who are waging war against the United States from within the United States. We will do what our elected representatives have refused to do act responsibly and defend our way of life."

    Visconti http://www.viscontiforcongress.org is challenging incumbent Democrat John Larson for the 1st Congressional District seat. Larson is the number-five ranking Democrat in the US House of Representatives. His websites do not list Immigration Reform as one of his priorities.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    BRAVO REP VISCONTI! Finally we have someone who cares about Americans verses illegal aliens and Hispanic special interest groups that are hell bent on pushing amnesty down Americans throats. The majority of Hispanic lawmakers have waved their middle finger at the "oath of office" and decided that they want the kind of change that "Obama" wants. ONE EASY STEP TO DESTROY AMERICA, IS TO VOTE FOR OBAMA.
    RIP Butterbean! We miss you and hope you are well in heaven.-- Your ALIPAC friends

    There are plenty of laws on the books that can be thrown against sanctuary cities, including RICO, the aiding and abetting, and even the threat of removal of federal funding for those ignoring federal law.
