I imagine some SJW heads were exploding over that one. Tucson Voters Vote Down ‘Sanctuary City’ Proposal.
On Tuesday, [Proposition 205] was defeated by just over 71 percent of Tucson voters. It was opposed during the campaign by virtually all of the city’s authority figures, including the Pima County Sheriff, the city council, and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild (D-Ariz.).
71 percent is pretty resounding “no” vote. Do you think the SJWs will accept it? Neither do I.
They certainly didn’t care what this guy might do. Authorities Ignored Detainer On Illegal Alien Accused Of Bashing Teenager’s Head And Dismembering His Body, ICE Says.
A teenager who was brutally murdered and then chopped into pieces, allegedly by a suspected MS-13 gang member, could still be alive today if local authorities had honored an ICE detainer, the agency said.
But you know, actually enforcing the law wouldn’t be woke. Or something. (Hat tip to the Daley Gator.)
Not that ABC will mention Sanctuary. (or use the word “illegal” to describe immigration.) ‘You know you like this’: Court docs reveal horrid details in rape of Silver Spring woman.
The suspect has been identified as Kevin Mendoza, a 26-year-old
undocumented immigrant illegal alien. Mendoza is currently facing a trio of felony charges: first-degree rape, attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault.
I edited that sentence for them, to remove the euphemism.
The article is full of some disturbing details, but it is a disturbing crime.
An excerpt from William Jefferson Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union.
Spread this around. Why was this a good idea in 1995 and not today?
The main character in Orwell’s Nineteen Eight-four was in charge of altering historic records. Obama White House Deleted Online Speeches About The Immigration Crisis Hours Before Trump Entered Office: Report.
The Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website just hours before President Donald Trump officially entered office, according to research released Tuesday.
A collection of 190 transcripts of speeches on ICE’s website was deleted on Jan. 18 and late in the evening on Jan. 19, 2017, according to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for government transparency. Statements made by high-ranking ICE officials regarding controversial immigration topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees, and other issues were included in the reported deletions.
Because history is only important if it servers The Party. Of the Left.
Animal from Animal Magnetism has the surprising news as part of Animal’s Hump Day News.
HOLY CRAP! That notorious right-wing rag, the New York Times, has taken the official editorial position that there is, in fact, a crisis at our southern border. The article still argues against a border barrier and takes some cheap shots at President Trump but the underlying message is still yes, we need to do something.
Ebola is bad, but it isn’t likely to get here by way of illegal immigration. It takes too long for people to get here that way. 20 Illegal Aliens from Congo Being “Monitored for EBOLA” at U.S. Border.
TB on the other hand is a real problem.
“TB is an ongoing issue in the state of Texas,’ [Laredo Health Director Dr. Hector Gonzalez] explained. “Between Texas, California, and New York, we have 50 percent of the cases of TB and the border has the most. Brownsville has the biggest number of cases.”
Because there is TB, Multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), and Extremely drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB). Regular TB costs about 100 bucks to cure, if you can give people medicine over time and KNOW they will take it. The other forms require hospitalization, quarantine and whole lot more drugs.

And Trump is Right. The Sanctuary Cities should love a bunch of illegal aliens. Trump doubles down on plan to ship migrants to sanctuary cities, says ‘Radical Left’ should be happy.
President Trump responded to reports Friday that his administration proposed releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities by not only confirming the plan but saying it remains under “strong” consideration.
If we have to send them somewhere, aside from back home, then I think San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, wherever should be pleased at the extra expense.
Of course they get tax refunds. Tax loophole costs billions. From NBC 13 in Indianapolis.
Millions of illegal immigrants are getting a bigger tax refund than you. Eyewitness News shows a massive tax loophole that provides billions of dollars in tax credits to undocumented workers and, in many cases, people who have never stepped foot in the United States. And you are paying for it!
This is completely insane. But then most things the government is doing these days is insane. (Have you been affected by the .gov shutdown? I haven’t.)
Go read the whole thing, it isn’t too long. (Hat tip to Trigger Reset.)
