The country’s top immigration enforcement officer says he is looking into charging sanctuary city leaders with violating federal anti-smuggling laws because he is fed up with local officials putting their communities and his officers at risk by releasing illegal immigrants from jail.

Thomas Homan, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also told Americans to expect more work site enforcement targeting unscrupulous employers and more 287(g) agreements with willing police and sheriff’s departments that want to help get illegal immigrants off their streets. Eventually, he said, ICE will break the deportation records of 409,849 migrants set in 2012 under President Obama.

“I think 409,000 is a stretch this year, but if [the Justice Department] keeps going in the direction they’re going in, if we continue to expand our operational footprint, I think we’re going to get there,” he told The Washington Times. “Our interior arrests will go up. They’re going to top last year’s for sure.”

Mr. Homan is the spear tip of President Trump’s effort to step up immigration enforcement — perhaps the largest swing in attitude for any agency in government from the last administration to the current one.

Agents and officers have been unshackled from the limits imposed by Mr. Obama, whose rules restricted arrests to less than 20 percent of the estimated illegal immigrant population.

Now, most illegal immigrants are eligible for deportation, though Mr. Homan said serious criminals, recent border crossers and people who are actively defying deportation orders are still the agency’s priorities.

“It’s a matter of time before one of my officers is seriously hurt or doesn’t go home because someone made a political decision on the backs of my officers,” he said.

But he said he won’t be chased out of “sanctuaries” and pointedly raised a section of federal code — 8 U.S.C. 1324 — that outlaws attempts to “conceal, harbor or shield” illegal immigrants.

“I think these sanctuary cities need to make sure they’re on the right side of the law. They need to look at this. Because I am,” he said.

Asked whether that means he will recommend prosecutions, he said, “We’re looking at what options we have.”

The law carries a penalty of five years in prison in most cases, but penalties could rise to include life in prison or even death if someone is killed during the crime.

Mr. Homan said refusing to cooperate is counterproductive for sanctuary cities, whose goal is to protect illegal immigrants from deportation.

He said if his agents have to knock on doors in the community, then they are likely to encounter still more illegal immigrants to round up.

“If I arrest a bad guy in the jail, I arrest him. But if I go to his home or his place of employment and arrest the bad guy, and there’s five guys with him? They’re going to come too,” the chief said.
:lol:

Well, I know it will never happen, but in addition to stripping these cities of federal funding, they should also be heavily fined and no goods should be allowed to enter these cities; i.e., food, mail, water, etc., and no banking should be allowed in these cities as well. They don't want to comply with U.S. law, then they should be on 'their' own.  Shut these cities down!

My you are after blood!   :lol:   

Why punish everyone for mistake by others? 

Start by locking up the city mayors and city council that voted for it.  Then move on to the other breaking the laws if need be.   Put them in a prison for two or three year.  Not a jail in town or the country jail, let them do hard time if they don't come around.  After all they are breading the law(s) that you and I must follow everyday.

Lol ... you have a tendency to bring me back to earth when I need it. Illegal immigration and the liberal mental midgets frustrate me and in my mind it's an issue that should have easily been resolved almost 2 decades ago!  No, instead we have to deal with a bunch of politically correct junkies and liberal morons that are destroying this country.  (P.S.  I love this forum - it's an avenue to vent).

Trust me I enjoy a good rant myself, it cleans the air.   :lol:

But I have the good wife that brings me back down to earth that ask me how I really feel a bout that.  We been married for 50 years so she know when to bring me back to earth.   :lol:

My pet peeve is food stamp, nothing but the best stake and food.  Then they pull out hundred dollar bills and pay for booze and cigarettes and things food stamp will not pay for.   Yep and there a nice white SUV that they get into.

Funny stuff - we differ though, so I'll take the liberty of re-writing it.

"Trust me I enjoy a good rant fart myself, it clears the air room.   :lol:

But I have the Scotch-Irish good wife that brings me back down to earth can send 'em running for the hills when I that ask me her how I she really REALLY feels a bout that.  We been married for 50 37 years so she know when to bring me back to earth I'm finally getting good walking on eggs.   :lol: "

Or laws against harboring fugitives.

Or maybe the officials could be charged as accessories
to the crimes committed by the illegals
after the cities let them go.
