Leftist NYC Mayor Claims It’s Okay To Protect Illegal Criminals Caught Driving Drunk (VIDEO)
Leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio has great news for illegal immigrants living in New York City. They have more rights than American citizens!
If an illegal is caught driving drunk, they will be shielded so that their immigration status isn’t reported to the feds.
First of all, they’re NOT immigrants! They’re illegal aliens. “Immigrant” is an immigration status that they do no possess.
Secondly, nearly all illegal aliens entered the United States illegally… as in violating US immigration laws. And in doing so, they did commit crimes. That makes them criminals.
The bottom line is that they shouldn’t be here in the first place, committing other crimes. We need to stop dancing around that fact.

DeBlasio to CNN: It’s OK to shield undocumented drunk drivers
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio told CNN’s Jake Tapper that it is OK to shield undocumented immigrants who drive drunk from federal authorities if it does not “lead to any other negative outcome.”
Tapper asked the Democratic mayor on Sunday’s “State of the Union” if he would comply with federal authorities following President Trump’s executive order to halt funding to cities that do not cooperate with immigration officials by presenting a specific scenario.“If you’re a drunk driver and you’re an undocumented immigrant, why should there be a place for you in this country?” Tapper asked.
“Jake, there are 170 offenses in that law that are listed as serious and violent crimes that lead to automatic cooperation between the city of New York and our federal partners,” DeBlasio replied. “So any serious and violent crime, we’re going to work with them.”

According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, nearly 10,000 Americans are killed each year as a result of drunk driving, or 27 people per day.
President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday stating the government will “strip federal grant money from the sanctuary states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants,” according to press secretary Sean Spicer.
While there is no official definition of the term “sanctuary city,” it basically refers to jurisdictions that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials.
In some cases, these cities instruct police not to inquire about the immigration status of those they encounter, or they refuse requests from ICE officials to keep defendants in custody while they await deportation.
Others say they do cooperate with such “detainer” requests as long as they’re backed by court-issued warrants, but won’t allow local officers to enforce federal immigration law.
Advocates say such noncooperation policies protect people who may not have exhausted their rights to apply for U.S. residency. They also say that crime victims and witnesses are more likely to cooperate with police if they are not afraid of being deported.
We’re either a nation of laws or we’re not.
There should be no different standard for people who are in the country illegally.
Enough is enough. Vote these anti_american scumbags out of office!
