Time to Demand Your Governor End “Sanctuary Cities” in Your State

Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Texas sheriffs, including Dallas County’s “sanctuary city” supporter Lupe Valdez, that if they don’t honor federal immigration detainers, he will withhold grant funding for their departments. 

Abbott sent all Texas sheriffs a letter Wednesday making good on a threat he issued last month to take punitive actions against Valdez after she implemented a new sanctuary policy under which illegal aliens who Kate Steinlecommitted “minor” offenses aren’t held for up to an additional 48 hours for agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. 

According to reporting by Brandi Grissom and Dianne Solis of the Dallas Morning News, in his letter on Wednesday, Abbott said starting immediately, sheriffs that seek grants through his criminal justice division will be required to certify that they fully honor detention requests for criminal immigrants. Those who fail to do so will be ineligible for grants. And departments that fall out of compliance will be required to return grant funds. 

An analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, and released earlier this year by our friend J. Christian Adams, revealed that foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of sexual assaults and nearly 3,000 homicides. 

The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails: 

From October 2008 to April 2014, Texas identified a total 177,588 unique criminal alien defendants booked into Texas county jails. These individuals have been identified through the Secure Communities initiative, in which Texas has participated since October 2008. 

The criminal aliens identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety have been responsible for the most heinous types of crimes — and in astonishing numbers. From the Texas DPS report:

A review of these 177,588 defendants shows that they are responsible for at least 611,234 individual criminal charges over their criminal careers, including 2,993 homicides and 7,695 sexual assaults. 

There are almost certainly more criminal aliens who haven’t been identified as aliens said Adams.  The 177,588 criminal aliens identified by Texas through the Secure Communities initiative only can tag criminal aliens who had already been fingerprinted he notes.  Arrests of illegal aliens who have not been fingerprinted prior to arrest are not included in these arrests numbers derived from the Secure Communities initiative. 

That means that the already stratospheric aggregate crime totals would be even higher if crimes by many illegal aliens who are not in the fingerprint database were included, concluded Adams. 

The increasing flood across the border combined with the existence of sanctuary cities bolstered by Obama administration policies allowing the release of the most violent criminal aliens has fueled these crimes. 

Yet, no other Governors, including many Republicans who claim to be tough on crime, have acted with Abbott’s resolve to put an end to the illegal and unconstitutional “sanctuary cities” in their states. 

It is time the grassroots mobilized to demand an end to so-called sanctuary cities and a return to the rule of law. 

The landslide defeat of San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, who last summer released the illegal alien who admitted to killing Kate Steinle’s – and who had been arrested and deported some five times – shows that even in liberal San Francisco Americans want an end to the illegal alien crime wave that so-called sanctuary cities have wrought. 

We urge you to sign our petition to demand that the Governor of your state follow Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s example and withhold funds to any jurisdiction in your state that purports to be a “sanctuary” locality. It is time for grassroots America to rise up and demand an end to the illegal actions by Democratic elected officials that have helped fuel the illegal alien crime wave that has destroyed the lives and families of thousands of American citizens.
