New Report Reveals Number of Americans Now Living Under Sanctuary Policies, It’s Stunning

This report is very alarming.

Published

on

According to a new report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, nearly half of all Americans are now living under sanctuary policies that help protect illegal immigrants from law enforcement.

FAIR calculated that 564 states and municipalities refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities on some level, a number that has climbed by more than 200 since Donald Trump was sworn into office. This number is up a whopping 500 compared to where it was ten years ago, when there were only 40 sanctuaries.

Entire states such as California, Illinois and New York are now sanctuaries, as well as major cities and counties such as Fairfax, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties and the District of Columbia in the capital region, according to the list.

Combined, the sanctuaries on FAIR’s list cover 49 percent of the country’s population, The Washington Times calculated.

“This is just an astounding and a dramatic surge of sanctuary jurisdictions,” said Bob Dane, executive director at FAIR. “They’ve doubled in just two years, and if you game that out, if the exponential growth continues, it’s not going to be long before it’s accurate to say the U.S. is a sanctuary country.”

At this point in time there is no official, universal definition of what constitutes a “sanctuary,” but FAIR counted any jurisdiction that banned police or officials from inquiring about a person’s immigration status, forbids communication with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or refuses to hold deportees for pickup by ICE.

The uptick in sanctuary cities started under the Obama administration, as an average of three new sanctuaries popped up per month during the eight years he was in office. Under the current administration we’re seeing close to 16 pop up per month.

As you might expect, California has the most number of sanctuaries, sitting at 130, with 80 of those being brand new, an obvious nod to the blatant anti-Trump sentiment coming out of the West Coast.

This is not only wrong, as it violates federal law to protect our borders and by extension, our sovereignty as a nation, but it’s also dangerous.

Many of the illegals coming across the border have lengthy criminal records, having worked for various cartels and gangs. Just look at the sheer number of arrests that have happened lately involving illegals. A vast majority have a rap sheet.

Here’s the simple reality of this situation. Our nation is like the house where all of our states and local neighborhoods live. You don’t simply allow a bunch of random strangers into your home, because these individuals could have evil intentions in mind. Instead, you lock the door.

We need to lock the door of our country. That’s it. The whole issue in a nutshell. Now if only the left could grasp this.

The suspect involved in the killing of three individuals and the wounding of several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was apparently a Saudi Arabian aviation student. Authorities investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday are working to find out if the incident is terrorism-related. The suspect, as of this writing, has not yet been named, though it is known this individual was here in the United States to receive flight training. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: The U.S. Navy confirmed that the gunman and two other people were killed in the mass shooting, which took place in one of the base’s classrooms. Eight people were transported to the hospital where an additional victim died. Two of those wounded in the shooting were deputies who engaged in a shootout with the man. One was shot in the arm and another in the knee but both are expected to survive. The gunman was killed shortly before 8 a.m. by other responding law enforcement officers. More than 23,000 military and civilian personnel work at NAS Pensacola. It’s considered one of America’s oldest stations and is known to be the home of the well known Blue Angels flight demonstration team.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Kent Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…
