The Truth Behind Who’s Really Benefiting From Sanctuary City Laws

This is the bold, honest truth about the potentially millions of undocumented migrants living in the US that is rarely mentioned in the mainstream media.

This is the bold, honest truth about the potentially millions of undocumented migrants living in the US that is rarely mentioned in the mainstream media.

Illegal immigrants don’t even benefit from our open-door policies.

We regularly harp on Sanctuary Cities (and now in the case of California, states) that systematically enable illegal immigrants to remain within the US. The left regularly laments the plight of illegal immigrants having to live in fear of, well, being detained and deported for the laws that they are breaking.

But rarely does anyone stop to ask if sanctuary policies even benefit the people they supposedly protect.

A new report demonstrates that illegal immigrants are, in fact, being hurt by policies that mask employers from the scrutiny of state labor laws and force ICE to detain more “non-offending” undocumented migrants than they would otherwise.

“In California, where a flurry of sanctuary laws have been passed, you might be tempted to think that life is getting easier for illegal aliens, right?” asks Jazz Shaw of Town Hall.

“But the reality is that many of these laws have simply made it easier for unscrupulous employers to abuse their illegal workers,” he explains.

The Hill reports:

A recent report from the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) on labor laws that California has enacted to protect unauthorized immigrant workers indicates that many of the aliens who have been attracted to California by its sanctuary policies are being exploited by unscrupulous employers.

According to EPI, fear of being reported to ICE gives employers extraordinary power to take advantage of unauthorized immigrant employees…

Presumably, exploited aliens think the abuse is an acceptable price to pay for protection from being deported. They don’t have to stay in California.

Shaw explains that a number of current California laws meant to prevent employers from calling or threatening to call ICE on undocumented workers really just help these employers break the law more. Oh, California…

“Some of these bills, such as AB 263, SB 666 and AB 2571 either made it illegal for employers to threaten workers by saying they would call ICE on them or made it easier for illegals to sue employers who did such things,” he says.

“These are curious laws to begin with because they ignore the fact that it’s against the law to knowingly employ an illegal alien in the first place,” he adds.

He also says that, as Sanctuary City police departments make ICE’s job more difficult, it’s forced them to broaden their scope as far as which undocumented immigrants they detain.

“Another effect of the sanctuary laws is that the illegal aliens with no other criminal records (generally the lowest priority for ICE) are getting swept up in raids more often,” he explains. “When ICE was able to simply pick up the real criminal offenders at jails, there was little reason to go out into the community.”

“But now, the sanctuary laws are forcing immigration officials to seek out the illegal aliens wherever they might be found. This results in more of the low-priority illegals being swept up.”

Imagine that. California, the beacon of hope for the passionate adherents of the cult of political correctness, is ultimately passing laws that make them look sympathetic to minority voters, not actually doing anything to help anyone.

Kamala Harris’ Ex-Flame Makes WILD Prediction About 2020 Chances

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Kamala Harris

As with any election that involves an incumbent President, the other side of the aisle is straining to put as many candidates out in the ether as possible.

This crowding of the democratic race for 2020 will certainly provide the nation with a very intimate look into the differences among the progressive avenues of the left-wing, and will undoubtedly escalate their internal infighting to epic proportions.

There is a very real chance that this could bring the democratic party itself to its knees, as the socialist wing attempts to convert some of the more moderate wings, and with the possibility that the entire organization could be driven hard to the left.

And let’s not forget that the 2016 race created an unfathomable opportunity for the DNC to discover just how to rig their own primaries.  Now that this precedent has been set, trust in the democrats is at an all time low.

So, does Kamala Harris stand a chance?  Her ex-lover doesn’t seem to think so.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

“Beyond the left” sounds like the surefire end of the democrats as we know it, but there will only be one way to know for sure.

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Leading 2020 Democrats Outed as Supporter of Segregation

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

There has been a whole lot of talk about modern segregation, particular as it applies to the nation’s current political climate.

Over the course of the last few years, the liberal left has been doing their damnedest in order to disparage their across-the-aisle colleagues.  Republicans have routinely been targeted for extreme abuse by lawmakers such as Maxine Waters, and by celebrities such as Kathy Griffin.

In the case of Waters, it was only days after her infamous “form mobs” speech that several women from the Trump administration were shouted out of restaurants while dining with their families.  For Griffin, however, her faux “dead President” photoshoot was followed only two weeks later by the actions of a crazed Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team in Virginia.

For the left, conservatives are simply second class citizens, and it shows.

But why are democrats so fond of this discrimination?  Well maybe it’s because they are secretly fond of all discrimination.

Take it from Joe Biden, on the subject of “busing” African Americans during our nation’s period of segregation.

“I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride,” Biden said, “is a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity.

Desegregation was “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality,” Biden said.

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

Naturally, the only way to make enemies out of countrymen is by hatred and segregation – possibly explaining why prominent democrats seem so blasé about such prejudice.
