    DHS Recommends Arrests For Sanctuary City Leaders

    DHS Recommends Arrests For Sanctuary City Leaders

    3:09 PM 01/16/2018

    Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed on Tuesday that her agency has asked the Justice Department to look into policies that would allow for criminal charges against elected leaders who refuse to enforce federal immigration laws.

    During a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing, Nielsen said that a request has been submitted to DOJ for consideration.

    “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues might be available,” Nielsen told California Sen. Kamala Harris.

    Harris had asked Nielsen about comments made recently by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan.

    Homan said in an interview with Fox News that the Justice Department had been asked to “look into criminal charges for elected officials with sanctuary policies as they are harboring illegal aliens.”

    Homan was specifically responding to a law passed on Jan. 1 in California that strengthens so-called sanctuary policies. The Trump Justice Department has taken direct aim at municipalities with sanctuary policies. Attorney
    General Jeff Sessions, a staunch immigration hawk, has moved to block criminal justice grants from being given to sanctuary cities.

    Nielsen defended her agency’s request to DOJ.

    “The context of this is of course not only putting my ICE officers at risk but also finding an efficient and effective way to enforce our immigration laws,” she told Harris.

    I submitted a request for prosecution of some of our county officials; the basic issue was that they were creating an additional constituency by allowing persons with no legal admission to influence policy. Our state government guide does define "constituent" as a "citizen of the state". Which is not to say that trespassers have no rights, but they definitely cannot be recognized in the same way that true constituents are. Of course, our DA and staff are pretty much of the same legal persuasion as the commission members, so they categorized it as a political opinion, not a complaint of violation of law.

    However, lately our local officials have taken it a step further by announcing that they would defy the US administration. This seems to be the crime of sedition, to me. If this were excusable then anyone who has a difference of opinion with the feds would walk! Obviously not the case. Now, they do cite a lower US court ruling against detaining illegal aliens when there is no judge issued warrant. But openly announcing actual defiance is taking it a step further.
