From Pilot Tribune:
Western Iowa Congressman Steve King is celebrating news of a sweep of arrests of nearly 500 illegal aliens in supposed “sanctuary city” locations in 10 urban areas of the country over a four-day period. “The end of so-called ‘sanctuary cities’ is here. Like it or not, the rule of law will be enforced,” said King, who punctuated a social media post with several icons of police officers and one of clapping hands.
King cited a Breitbart report that indicated that most of those arrested have criminal convictions on their records, and others had been previously deported and returned…
The sweep, known as Operation Safe City, did not target Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) young adults, though those individuals stand to become eligible for deportation as their temporary protected status expires over the next two years. King has advocated for an end to DACA, and deportation of those individuals, too. “Ending DACA now gives chance 2 restore Rule of Law. Delaying so R Leadership can push amnesty is Republican suicide,” King recently posted.
Immigration enforcement officials said the sanctuary cities are forcing the government’s hand in arrests, creating a magnet for illegal immigration. This four-day sweep rounded up 500 illegal aliens across multiple sanctuary cities. While illegal alien advocates were demanding the DOJ hand over their plans ahead of time, the government was busting in, arresting the criminals.
Because when everything is said and done, the fed’s still have the authority to arrest wrongdoers. You can deny cities cash all you want. Liberals can go on Twitter and virtue signal up a storm. Nothing’s going to stop a SWAT team from breaking down doors and rounding up scumbags! Keep in mind, there’s more work to be done. DACA is still a major problem, that is encouraging more illegal immigration. But as long as ICE and the DOJ are performing these sweeps, illegals will be too scares to cross the border!
