ICE Director Issues a Major Warning to Sanctuary State: ‘California Better Hold on Tight’

The California Values Act has taken effect, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan is not happy about what it means for immigration officials.

He joined Fox News to share his thoughts on why it could ultimately hinder ICE from effectively doing its job. He began by saying, “I think it’s terrible.”

“You’ve got the state of California that wants to put politics ahead of public safety, ahead of officers’ safety. What they’ve done is forced my officers to arrest dangerous criminals on their turf, in their homes and their place of business, rather than arresting them in the safety and security of a county jail.”

He adds, “It’s ridiculous to knowingly and intentionally put law enforcement at risk.”

Homan has been opposed to this law since its inception in September, and he released a statement about the harm it would do then:

Homan believes that this piece of legislation “serves to codify a dangerous policy that deliberately obstructs our country’s immigration laws and shelters serious criminal alien offenders.”

Cavuto asked, “What can you do if you’re not going to get local help in trying to track down folks you say not only shouldn’t be here, but are a threat to people here?”

Homan had a strong reply:

“If [California Gov. Jerry Brown] thinks he’s protecting the immigrant community, he’s doing quite the opposite. Because if you think ICE is going away, we’re not.

There’s no sanctuary from federal law enforcement. … I’m going to significantly increase our enforcement presence in California. …

California better hold on tight. They’re about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the state of California. If the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.”

The California Values Act appears to be a political response to President Donald Trump’s desire to deport illegal immigrants. Homan, who is tough on immigration, was picked by Trump to run ICE.

Homan pointed out that in April 2017, illegal border crossings were at a 17-year low. He credited the decline largely to President Trump’s attempts to protect the border.

President Trump Takes ‘Something’ Away From Sanctuary City Mayor — Bill de Blasio Is Boiling Mad

The refusal of local governments and their law enforcement departments to cooperate with federal immigration authorities is a farce. Local jurisdictions have no more right to pick and choose which federal laws they will follow than private citizens do.

Hence, the sanctuary city movement is based on the violation of the rule of law rather than its support. That we find sanctuary cities in locations which typically elect liberals to office is to be expected. Their plan is to shelter those illegals from deportation mandated by federal law, provide them with generous welfare benefits, and eventually turn them into voters for the Democratic Party. It’s just that simple.

So the battle between sanctuary cities and federal law enforcement authorities continues. In a recent sweep, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 24 illegals in New York City who had DUI convictions. There is no rational explanation why a local government would want such individuals on the loose other than the vote-creating explanation just given. Hence, Mayor de Blasio’s plans just took a small, but important hit.

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Removal Operations (ERO) officers arrested 25 illegal immigrants in Long Island, New York – 24 were convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. One of those is an MS-13 member.

“ERO officers arrested one other person for an immigration violation.

“The illegal aliens arrested during the six-day ‘Operation Secure Streets’ sweep are being detained pending the finalization of immigration removal proceedings. The criminal illegal aliens who are already subject to outstanding deportation orders, or who re-entered after being deported, can be removed from the country immediately.”

Attempts to shelter such individuals from deportation should subject Mayor de Blasio to legal action. These are dangerous individuals he wants on his streets. Note the following:

“Besides DWI and aggravated DWI, the criminal histories also include convictions for assault in the second degree and criminal trespass in the second degree. These foreign nationals are from Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and the Ukraine.”

It is bad enough that otherwise peaceful people choose to break our immigration laws rather than applying to enter the US legally. When felons who are here illegally are turned loose rather than being deported, we have the deliberate endangerment of Americans for political purposes, in this case those of the left.

While we cannot deport derelict politicians and office holders, we can try the next best thing: Vote them out of office.

Since it’s unlikely that will happen in the liberal sanctuary cities, federal officials will have no choice but to continue to enforce the law in spite of local obstruction. It’s outrageous, but retreating is not an option.

ICE Busts 24 Illegal Immigrants with DUI Convictions in Sanctuary New York

ICE ERO officers remove criminal alien.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Removal Operations (ERO) officers arrested 25 illegal immigrants in Long Island, New York – 24 were convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. One of those is an MS-13 member.

ERO officers arrested one other person for an immigration violation.

The illegal aliens arrested during the six-day “Operation Secure Streets” sweep are being detained pending the finalization of immigration removal proceedings. The criminal illegal aliens who are already subject to outstanding deportation orders, or who re-entered after being deported, can be removed from the country immediately.

Officials made these arrests in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

Besides DWI and aggravated DWI, the criminal histories also include convictions for assault in the second degree and criminal trespass in the second degree. These foreign nationals are from Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and the Ukraine.

The field officer director for ERO in New York, Thomas R. Decker said, “This operation targeted those who were convicted of driving under the influence, some with children in the car, solidifying ICE’s commitment to remove public safety threats from our communities.”

Decker added, “With the incredibly high number of vehicle accidents and related deaths as a result of DUIs, ICE will continue to arrest and remove these criminal aliens for the safety of our city’s residents.”

Mary Ann Mendoza’s 32-year-old son, Mesa Police Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, was slain by an intoxicated, criminal illegal alien. The illegal alien killed Sergeant Mendoza because he was so drunk he was driving down the wrong way on a highway when he hit the police sergeant. The intoxicated illegal immigrant already had charges for burglary, assault of a peace officer, and fraud but never appeared in court. He remained on the run for 12 years. When he was caught at the border, officials took him to Colorado where he was shown leniency and released.

Mary Ann Mendoza told Breitbart Texas last December:

When elected officials start taking actions to protect illegal criminals, and as some have stated, using taxpayer money to offer legal assistance, you have to wonder what place Americans who have been affected by illegal crime have in this big picture. We are now becoming the group in the shadows, ignored by local politicians, shunned by mainstream media and standing on the sidelines watching illegal criminals getting more benefits and protection than our loved ones ever got. This insanity and the power-hungry politicians using these issues for votes (from illegal aliens) to stay in office sickens me. Americans matter, Americans need protection and Americans should come first, after all, we do live in America, right?

In 2012, Sabine Durden’s 30-year-old son Dominic died when an illegal immigrant from Guatemala driving an unlicensed truck struck him when he was on his motorcycle. Durden, a legal immigrant from Germany, has been very outspoken against illegal immigration and amnesty.

Durden and Mendoza are co-founders of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC).
