THESE MARXISTS TEND TO FORGET. LEFTIST POLICY ALWAYS COMES WITH HARSH CONSEQUENCE IN A REPUBLIC


California's big cities continue to stand out for their refusal to cooperate with the Trump administration's immigration policies.

A day after San Francisco proposed cutting ties with any company that bids on Trump's border wall, the Los Angeles City Council approved a resolution Tuesday barring city firefighters and airport police from cooperating with federal immigration agents, Fox News reported.

The move is the city's latest repudiation of the administration's efforts to step up deportations of illegal immigrants, which Mayor Eric Garcetti has called "inhumane."

"In Los Angeles, we don't demonize our hardworking neighbors just because they speak another language or come from another country," Garcetti said. "That's un-American."

Many major cities throughout the U.S. have similar non-cooperation policies in place, including Chicago and New York, but Los Angeles is at the forefront of local jurisdictions defying White House immigration orders.

The new directive, signed by Garcetti Tuesday, extends to all city employees a decades-old policy of the Los Angeles Police Department that prohibits officers from inquiring about a suspect's immigration status.

LAPD also refuses to honor requests from federal immigration officials to detain illegal immigrants arrested for nonviolent crimes, the Wall Street Journal reported. The department claims that it is more effective when policing is separated from immigration enforcement, allowing it to build trust between police and residents.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck this week said reports of sexual assault and domestic violence by Hispanic residents have declined this year by 25 and 10 percent, respectively, possibly due to fear that police contact could lead to deportation.

Not all law enforcement authorities in Los Angeles agree with non-cooperation policies. Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell opposes a "sanctuary state" bill in the California statehouse that attempts to prevent federal immigration agents from taking custody of people released from the state's jails.

If the bill passes, McDonnell told the Los Angeles Times, immigration agents will have "no choice but to go into the communities and arrest not only the individual they are seeking but also people who are with that person, or other people in the area who are undocumented."


"That is something none of us want," he added.

Always remember fire and police chiefs are nothing more than political appointees of the mayor and/or city council. Sheriffs are elected by the people.

Been there done that, nobody can tell a sworn officer NOT TO ENFORCE THE LAW. And if you do there is nothing the powers that be can do about it.

I suspect these sock puppets will issue some sort of Memo "ordering" Dept Personnel NOT to cooperate with ice that everyone will have to sign and "comply" with. Then they will turn around and "backdoor" the policy and call ICE on the sly.

And "Airport" police are under the feds themselves, city schmucks have no authority over them and no jurisdiction.

It would seem to me that the first time something happens at LAX involving an illegal. The Feds would have the grounds under national security to nationalize the air port police force!

We're in an age that's beginning to look like Anarchy - where the laws are being ignored. Thanks for that BO.

And the administration is reluctant to enforce the laws as others blatantly push back as he would act against elected officials of the state because that will cause even greater division than we have now. An unstoppable force is up against an immovable object - there's going to be some significant pain.

His best card to play is probably to pull their state funding, encourage growth in the parts of the country who do take the republic constitution / laws seriously, and wait patiently for them to implode. Eventually, the people will give up their unsupportable idealism and vote out the idiots - then start talking sense. Not sure how the Dims will blame that on the Pubs ... but they'll find a way.

For now, maybe we should continue the wall up the California coast. Some on this site might have to move. I probably have a "tiny house" around here somewhere.

That's why the mayor pulled this stunt and knew no one would challenge him on it because they serve at his pleasure and can be replaced at a whim.
But the sheriff called his racist ass on it and there's not a thing he can do about it.
Sheriff's are our first and last line of defense, where standing up to tyranny is concerned.
