Because local funds and resources shouldn't be used to do what should be one of the few jobs of the federal government.
Yeah, this is what I understand, and I too, don't want to turn this into a slap-fight.
Cops don't want to be doing ICE's job. And yeah, if you've every hauled someone in for any reason,
that'll punch a hole in your shift so much so as to just write the shift off.
So, while local LEO's are dragging a Father of 4 down to processing and all the associated paperwork,
their actual gigs don't get done. And, 'dragging in Messicans' doesn't help their productivity or quotas.
Moreover, undocumenteds are absolutely not likely to offer up tips/information to fight REAL crime if there's even a chance they'll be carded and deported. Again, screwing up local LEO efforts.
For example, in places that have recently withdrawn SC status, reported rapes went down around 25%.
The Trumptards cling to this as some kind of false proof of -something, but when you interview actual cops,
the truth is - Undocumented Women refuse to report a rape if, on TOP of that, they get carded and deported.
So, Ironically, the only people who actually benefit from getting rid of Sanctuary Cities in this scenario
- are the Rapists that Trump used to scare people in the first place.
And, for the record -with some awful awful exceptions -if they catch an MS-15 group gang-banging a toddler, they don't turn their head and walk away. Violent Illegal offenders are indeed removed in SC's too. Oftentimes, when you look into it - when those exceptions DO occur? You can't fault the local LEO's - the Feds never focking show. - But that rarely gets talked about.
Some people have no idea what SC really means. It just means that cops aren't going to assume you're illegal and round up everyone with a broken taillight.
Not that anyone asked, but for my Money - work on border enforcement - deport the shiit outta violent illegal offenders, but stop acting like you're going to deport the 11 Million mostly good people already here.
In fact, I'm willing to compromise - Deport ALL violent felons in lieu of random hard-working, otherwise law abiding
undocumenteds. You commit a violent felony? You don't get to live here - regardless of color. Anybody think the Al Sharpton types wouldn't lose their focking MINDS!?
...but that's another thread.
