Recent figures and reports gathered through Breitbart and the Center for Immigration Studies, (CIS) show that it is likely over 5,000 crimes have been committed against California residents due solely to the state's Sanctuary State policies.
ICE Director Thomas Homan said last year that at least 10,000 illegal aliens whose detainers were ignored through SC policy went on to commit more crimes…These crimes would not have happened if the law had been followed and they were passed over to ICE.
CIS Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan said:
“That is 5,000 crimes that occurred that could have been prevented if they had cooperated with ICE as federal law provides. What is the cost to Californians for that crime spree?”
“Surely it is a lot more than the cost of the few minutes of a California jail officer’s time to notify ICE, or to keep the offenders in custody for ICE for a few hours,” Vaughan said. “But California politicians like Gov. Brown, Xavier Becerra, and Libby Schaaf would rather have the crime, apparently.”
The real victims are the residents of California who must face wave after wave of crimes because the same criminals are let back onto the streets. We should pity them and the trials they must face, even as the state taxes them into poverty. Yet they do have a choice. They can change it all this year by making the right choice voting in the midterms.
