Golly! I feel safer already! Thanks, Nancy!

“People don’t understand — the one problem I think the current occupant of the White House — they don’t understand that sanctuary cities is [sic] what helps law enforcement. It helps public safety.” —Nancy Pelosi

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy… The only way sanctuary cities help law enforcement is by concentrating them in one area for ICE to round up – which, by the way: you oppose, and which is contrary to why sanctuary cities exit. I can conceive of no possible way in which sanctuary cities helps public safety. How did it help Officer Don Johnston? Jill Sundberg?  Kate Steinle? How about those robbed by illegal aliens? Raped by them? Assaulted by them? Injured or killed in traffic accidents with them?

You see, Nancy, if they weren’t here none would have been injured by them! Sanctuary cities merely enable them to remain here and exposes US citizens – those you are sworn to protect by your oath of office – to potential harm by them.

Now, don’t get me wrong: I don’t for a minute believe that every individual who comes into this country illegally is a criminal in any other way than having broken our immigration rules (noting, of course, that they are criminals within the US simply by breaking our immigration laws); however, there simply is a disproportionate number of illegal aliens incarcerated for violent crimes than for other populations within the country.

And it’s unfair to expel illegal aliens? Excuse me?! I agree that the children of illegals are in this country usually by no choice of their own; however, that does not make it my responsibility to make them whole in any way. There are MANY of our citizens who do not have it anywhere as good as a lot of these illegals. Take care of those you swore to protect first. Then worry about those outside; but only those who follow our laws to get here. We uproot invasive species along our highways universally – we don’t leave the seedlings because they were here through no fault of their own.

Also, the US Constitution applies to US citizens. Those who are not US citizens absolutely do not have constitutional rights. They must be treated as laid out in international law, but they do not have citizenship conferred upon them just because they managed to get on your side of the border.

A parting question: I wonder how many US citizens living within these sanctuary cities support the designation? Or were these designated through political fiat only?
