Democrats’ stance on sanctuary cities will cost them

first_imgRepublicans can only hope that liberals running in 2018 will make an issue of the Justice Department lawsuit.After all, do Democrats really want to be on the side of shielding illegal immigrants – many of whom have outstanding warrants and criminal records?When the Oakland mayor alerted an entire community of illegal immigrant criminals that ICE was coming, she reportedly allowed about 800 to escape.According to ICE officials, almost half of those who were arrested “had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.” Are those really the people Democrats want to defend?I hope so.I can already see the campaign ads that Republicans will be running. The Democrats’ position on sanctuary cities will not play well in flyover America. The law is not optional once you have made a pledge to uphold the duties of your office.Open-border radicals in California and other liberal strongholds must be held accountable.Of course, liberals would have you believe that they are only interested in protecting the poor, the oppressed and the hardworking who have nowhere else to go.But in many cases, their actions allow dangerous and sometimes repeat criminals to be shielded from deportation or prison.In California, good Samaritans who value the rule of law are even prohibited from voluntarily cooperating with federal immigration officials who are trying to uphold the law and make communities safer.Anyway, Democrats and their allies in the media will say otherwise, but nothing about this conversation is even in the slightest bit hyperbolic.Local politicians are actually warning illegal immigrants of impending enforcement actions. Categories: Editorial, OpinionAttorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration are going about the sanctuary city issue in the right way.The very idea of so-called sanctuary cities is offensive to a lot of law-abiding Americans.Taking action against the liberal politicians who want to give safe harbor to illegal immigrants is a slow, easy pitch from the Democrats, and Republicans everywhere should take advantage.The Justice Department is now challenging several laws in California that not only interfere with the nation’s immigration policies but also place American citizens and law enforcement personnel at risk.The idea that laws can be ignored and that state and local politicians can affirmatively warn lawbreakers of how to escape apprehension is incredible.It is indefensible. We either have laws, or we don’t.And if our elected leaders don’t want to uphold the law, they can either change them or resign. In Oakland, Mayor Libby Schaaf went so far as to issue a press release and accompanying tweet alerting illegal immigrants in the Bay Area of an impending Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operation last month.According to ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan, what the Oakland mayor did “is no better than a gang lookout yelling ‘police’ when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood.” The fact that a politician who presumably swore to uphold the Constitution could feel so emboldened to undermine an active law enforcement operation and place those officers in harm’s way cannot go unanswered.And according to what Sessions said on Wednesday, it won’t.Specifically, speaking before the California Peace Officers’ Association, Sessions said: “We are going to fight these irrational, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you and our federal officers.“We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.“We are fighting to have a lawful system of immigration that serves Americans. And we intend to win.” Well said. Last month, plenty of Democrats and liberal outlets pushed the idea that somehow, in some bizarre twist of reality, Republicans had split with law enforcement and were no longer the party of law and order.The Huffington Post even pronounced that Republicans had “unleashed an extraordinary attack on law enforcement” by criticizing a few senior FBI officials.With the Democrats’ position on sanctuary cities, that argument should not be too difficult to dismiss. Anyone who supports illegal aliens and opposes law enforcement’s efforts to protect communities from criminals should be shown no quarter – not in the media, not in the courtroom and not in our political campaigns.In the case of the administration’s policy on sanctuary cities, good policy is also the best politics.Ed Rogers is a contributor to the Washington Post’s PostPartisan blog, a political consultant and a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W.

Struggling Man Utd must improve quickly, says James

first_img Loading… Daniel James admitted Manchester United’s performance against Burnley “simply wasn’t good enough” after an embarrassing defeat that darkened the mood at the troubled club.Advertisement Burnley triumphed at Old Trafford on Wednesday for the first time since 1962, with Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez scoring in a 2-0 win.United have now lost more Premier League games than they have won since Solskjaer’s permanent appointment in March and are 30 points behind leaders Liverpool, who also have two games in hand on their rivals.The Norwegian boss reportedly retains the backing of the United hierarchy despite the club’s dismal run, but Wales winger James knows they must improve quickly.“Obviously disappointing,” James said following the defeat. “Today obviously wasn’t good enough. We know that and obviously the fans know that as well.“We need to, as a team, take chances better. Today we had quite a number of shots.”James bemoaned a lack of cutting edge during a promising United start that quickly unravelled, with Solskjaer’s side mustering little response to Burnley’s goals either side of half-time.Rodriguez’s stunner early in the second half led to renewed, furious chants calling for owners the Glazers and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to leave, with thousands of fans rising to their feet as “Stand up if you hate Glazers” echoed around the ground.There were jeers at the final whistle but there was still support for Solskjaer and the players between songs aimed at the club hierarchy.“I think every week, home and away, they cheer us on and stick by us,” said James. “We’re obviously going to react to this. We know that wasn’t good enough today.”United have a frantic fixture schedule coming up, with an FA Cup fourth-round tie against Tranmere or Watford on Sunday.A trip to Manchester City for the second leg of the League Cup semi-final, a match they head into 3-1 down, follows on Wednesday, before attention turns to narrowing the gap to the top four, with United still fifth.Struggling Man Utd must improve quickly, says James https://t.co/W2j3DS2Mif pic.twitter.com/7Zk1Iejdqf— CLEANSHEET (@Cleansheet) January 23, 2020Read Also: Man United Launch £30m Bid For 16-Year-Old Bellingham“I think that’s obviously still up for grabs,” James said of the Champions League spots. “We’ve got to keep fighting.“We’ll reflect on this game and then see what obviously went wrong today. Then we’ve got two big cup games coming up. We’ve got to go into that with heads held high.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted Content7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The UniverseWe’re Getting More Game Of Thrones: Enter House Of The Dragon!Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Best Car Manufacturers In The WorldCrazy Expensive Things That Taylor Swift Owns5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love Withlast_img read more

Martino – Fabregas staying at Barca

first_img Three days ago the Catalan club’s sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta said he thought David Moyes’ side’s pursuit of the midfielder was over, after they had two bids turned down. Zubizarreta’s prediction would appear to be vindicated in light of reports that United have turned their attention to signing Marouane Fellaini from Everton instead. Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino says he is no longer worried about the possibility of Cesc Fabregas leaving the club to join Manchester United. Fabregas started in Barcelona’s 7-1 win over Thailand on Wednesday and after the game Martino insisted he was not concerned about the player’s future, concerning himself more with the fitness of club captain Carles Puyol, who is still recovering from a knee operation. “Fabregas is still our player and he will be with us for this season,” the Argentinian coach is quoted as telling AS. “Right now I’m more worried about whether Puyol will recover.” The declining physical state of the 35-year-old Catalan defender has made buying a centre-back one of Barcelona’s priorities this summer. However, with 10 days to go until the new season starts, the Primera Division champions have only made one signing – Brazil forward Neymar. The club have now reportedly made a £35 million bid for Chelsea centre-back David Luiz, but Martino refused to shed any light on a possible move for the Brazilian. “I’m in Thailand, I know nothing about any negotiations,” he said. Neymar opened his account for Barcelona by netting the game’s first goal after 12 minutes, with Lionel Messi doubling the scoreline a minute later with a penalty. Martino was encouraged by how the two forwards played on the first occasion they had started together for the Catalans. He said: “They combined well and played in different areas of the pitch. The connection between Neymar and Leo was the most interesting thing about the game and they played as well as we expected. “They combined well and scored goals, but they also combined with other players, which is what you expect at this level.” Pedro scored Barcelona’s third and fifth goals, while Messi hit the fourth to complete his own brace. Teerasil Dangda pulled one back for the hosts before half-time from the spot, before Pedro completed his hat-trick and Alexis Sanchez scored a seventh. Press Associationlast_img read more
