Steny Hoyer (D-MD) Claims Immigration Laws Should Be Followed

Steny Hoyer (D-MD) Claims Immigration Laws Should Be Followed
Al Ritter 

Steny Hoyer, Democratic House Whip just now flips to the “legal” side of law, obviously protecting his house seat and position in the Democratic caucus. In an Interview yesterday he said that “sanctuary cities like Baltimore and San Francisco should be informing federal authorities when local law enforcement arrest felons like the illegal immigrant who allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco last week.” 

Hoyer stopped short and refused to site what he thinks the punishment should be for cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws on criminals that should be deported, but he thinks that officials have the responsibility to report such criminals to federal authorities. 

This sudden concern of Hoyer’s is almost laughable because in the district backing up to his district, Baltimore City, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake four long years ago claimed her city to be a sanctuary city, and yet not a word out of Congressman Steny Hoyer. Takoma Park which backs up to Hoyer’s district to the west has also been declared a sanctuary city, and again no word on that declaration from Congressman Hoyer! 

Most Democrats seem to believe that we should somehow give sanctuary to “undocumented aliens” and then loosely monitor them to make sure they don’t fall into the category of violent criminals. 

Sadly, hardened criminals are crossing our borders daily and automatically seek out sanctuary cities knowing that their movements and activities will not be tracked. As a result these cities are a magnet for the most violent of criminals and crime rates skyrocket in those areas. 

Democrats ignore the fact that the people who cross illegally into our country have already committed a felony by the act of crossing illegally. Federal law that is being willfully and intentionally ignored by this Administration addresses that fact in that anyone with a criminal record of a felony may NOT be allowed in this country. ICE, and Border Control are daily being told to stand down by the DHS and DOJ and not to actively deport these criminals. 

Why have borders at all if they aren’t actively being enforced?
