Acting ICE Director Wants to Arrest Politicians Running Sanctuary Cities

Evan Vucci  AP

Homan, who was announced in December as President Trump's pick to permanently run the agency, went on to say that politicians enforcing sanctuary city policies need to be held "personally accountable".

California Gov. Jerry Brown at a news conference in Sacramento, Calif., on May 11, 2017.

On Tuesday, the United States' top immigration enforcement official said the government should bring criminal charges against politicians in sanctuary cities. (Many do not honor ICE requests to "hold" arrested people in jails without charges while immigration checks can be performed.) Despite the fact that there's no demonstrable connection between sanctuary policies and increased crime, sanctuary cities have been a favorite Trump talking point since his Presidential campaign. "That is a violation of 8 USC 1324. Are they violating federal law?" "If we haven't done so already, Caltrans crews will take steps to remove them".

Drivers entering California are being greeted with signs proclaiming the liberal bastion an "OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE", according to photos and videos circulating on social media appearing to show a prankster attached the official-looking blue signs just below legitimate "Welcome to California" markers.

Mr Homan continued on to say that California Governor Jerry Brown, who signed a state-wide sanctuary bill past year, should expect more immigration agents in his state. "There's no sanctuary from federal law enforcement".

In an interview with Fox News's Neil Cavuto, Homan called the law "terrible" and said the state wants to "put politics ahead of public safety" and "officer safety".

Hing similarly says that those calling for charging sanctuary-city politicians are "shooting from the hip" and "don't know what they're talking about".

"The Department of Justice needs to do a couple of things". "More citizens are going to die because of these policies". Senate Bill 223, which never advanced out of the Judiciary Committee, would have prevented state and local officers from participating in immigration enforcement.

The California law, though, continues to allow ICE to detain immigrants throughout the state.

Supporters of SB 4 believe the law will take criminals off the streets. The legislation, which went into effect at the start of the year, blocks law enforcement officials from asking someone about their immigration status and from holding an immigrant in jail to assist ICE.

The bill also prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using resources-including facilities, equipment, and personnel-for immigration enforcement purposes without a court warrant. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
