Here are the week’s best pieces from WOW!
Egads! What type of mental malfunction would cause anyone to think this will end well?
The moonbats running Denver must want the place to smell like San Francisco:
The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks.
This insanity was inspired by the liberal impulse to pander to illegal aliens at the expense of law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.
Democrat Mayor Michael Hancock and city officials explained the new ordinances are designed to protect immigrants — legal and the other kind — from “unintended consequences.” These consequences were fines and longer jail terms, as has been customary in most places for violating the behavioral norms of civilized American society.
There are no words
Here you are!
I love how he slaps down the idiocy of calling this law RAAAAACIST! You go Governor Abbott!
They want your vote your money, and yeah, they care more about illegal immigrants than they do about you, laws, or America. Wyblog explains
Three New Jersey Democrats think they’ve found a sure-fire way to sidestep President Trump’s plan to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities — have NJ taxpayers make up the difference.
New Jersey lawmakers from immigrant-rich Hudson County on Tuesday announced a bill that would provide state aid to sanctuary cities denied federal funds for failing to comply with immigration rules.
The bill was introduced in both houses of the legislature on Tuesday by State Sen. Brian Stack, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji and Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro, all Democrats from the 33rd District.
The legislation, S-3007 in the Senate and A-4590 in the Assembly, would allow municipalities or counties denied federal funds to apply to the state Commissioner of Community Affairs for a “dollar-for-dollar” match to compensate for the withheld federal money.
So in short, they wish to first break federal laws, then, when hit with penalties, they want you, the tax payers to bend over for them! After all, they want open borders, and screw you if you disagree. Again, from Wyblog
The mayor of Prospect Park, NJ is, and he’s opening the gates and beckoning the barbarians inside.
Prospect Park Mayor, Mohamed T. Khairullah, signed an executive order to reassure residents that they will be protected from President Donald J. Trump’s executive order to ban green card and visa holders, along with refugees, regardless of any resident’s immigration status.
Break the law, we won’t care!
His name’s Mohamed, so I’m guessing if someone breaks Sharia law, he’ll care, a lot. Immigration law, not so much.
In his executive order, he made it clear that all citizens, regardless if immigrant, refugee, green or visa card holder, are safe in Prospect Park and will not turn anyone to the federal government unless they have committed unlawful actions.
These are the clowns who are supposed to represent the people? Frankly, every city official who deliberately breaks federal immigration laws should not only be thrown from office, but should be arrested and forced to stand trial.
I am very proud to live in Texas, and very proud of our governor, Greg Abbott for his ideological clarity in standing up to the special snowflakes who think borders are silly and racist
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has no sympathy for the sanctuary campus movement, declaring his intention to cut funding for any state school that attempts to make itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.
In a series of tweets posted on the Republican governor’s account, Abbott assured concerned constituents that “Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities,” vowing multiple times that he will cut funding for any state entity that attempts such a plot, which the City of Austin and the University of Texas system have pledged to do.
One of the most cherished dreams of the Left is to do away with borders, national sovereignty, and most of all, America. The left wishes us all to be “equal” you see. Rather than helping countries improve by emulating the United States, and other capitalist nations, the Left always seeks to tear down the United States because “inequality”. It is not “fair” that America is stronger and more successful! So, America must share its success by eliminating its borders. Again because “inequality”. If America offers greater opportunities because of our economic system, then we must throw open our borders to allow people from less successful nations in. This, of course is madness.
If the Left were truly seeking to help Latin American nations they would encourage them to be more like the United States. They would push them to throw off Communism, and corruption, and replace those with free enterprise, and greater liberty for the people. That is how nations succeed, by not standing in the way of ambition and competition. The fact is the more freedom a nation has, the more successful its people will be. But, of course, improving less successful nations is not the Left’s real goal is it? No, because there will still be inequality you see. The egalitarian left cannot not stand that. They seek equality, period! It does not matter if everyone does better in America to them. All they see is America somehow “stealing” from less prosperous nations. America has too much, they say, as if there is only so much prosperity. That is not fair so America must stop being America.
There will always be inequality, of course, it is the natural course of life. And, the fact is this, inequality is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, inequality in application of laws and natural rights is very bad. The Left, however, fights to redistribute wealth, and to “level” the playing field. This is a fool’s errand. There is no level playing field in the real world. There is only competition, innovation, and differing levels of success, and yes, failures. You cannot change that reality by trying to force some unattainable, one size fits all equality onto successful nations. Nor can you do it by destroying nations by destroying borders.
People are not meant to be equal, they are individuals, unique, different, and crushing individualism by empowering governments to mandate some false equality will never attain anything of worth. And the only equality you will ever achieve will be an equality of depravity.
The family of Kate Steinle slapped federal officials and San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi with a lawsuit on Tuesday.
They say that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the sheriff must take responsibility for their daughter’s July 1 death, after the man charged with her murder along a popular waterfront had been deported five times.
“We’re here to make sure that a change is made so nobody has to endure the pain that my mom and dad and I go through on a daily basis,” Brad Steinle, Kate’s brother, said Tuesday, ABC News reported. “The system failed our sister, and at this point nobody has taken responsibility, accountability. And nothing has changed.”
Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, 45, has pleaded not guilty to Steinle’s killing. His criminal record also includes multiple felony convictions for narcotics charges.
“It’s too late for us, that ship has sailed. But we want it for future, possible victims,” Liz Sullivan, Kate’s mother, told a local ABC affiliate.
ICE had turned Sanchez over to San Francisco authorities earlier in the year due to an outstanding drug warrant, but he was not returned upon his release from custody. The gun used to kill Steinle was stolen from a BLM agent’s car on June 27.
San Francisco is one of a number of “sanctuary cities” across the U.S. that does not pressure its local officials to abide by federal immigration laws. Sarah Saldana, director of ICE, said in July that U.S. officials released more than 66,000 criminal immigrants between 2013-2014, CNN reported.
