The protestations from people here about immigration and Sanctuary cities is legitimized even more when stories like these surfaces where Tax payers are forced to pay for housing and other costs of living because lawyers working pro bono win their case based on a constitutional premise. No where could this happen but in the state of California! It appears Judicial Watch is the only one willing to do the work that Government and political leaders either refuse and are purposely ignoring to do.
In the latest example of sanctuary madness, a U.S. city is awarding an illegal immigrant with a cash settlement because police detained him for federal authorities after being arrested for driving under the influence. The 29-year-old perpetrator, Edgar Torres Gutierrez, eventually pled guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving and his pro bono attorneys from a nearby public university sued the city for violating his Constitutional rights as well as a statewide sanctuary law. Under the agreement, Gutierrez will receive $18,750 from taxpayers in the California coastal municipality where he lives illegally. Local police officers will also be forced to watch a training video involving sanctuary measures for the next two years.
Even for a famously liberal state this seems to be a bit much. The unbelievable incident occurred in Laguna Beach, a southern California town of about 23,000 residents. In the summer of 2018, Gutierrez was arrested and jailed by Laguna Beach Police on suspicion of driving under the influence. The law enforcement agency held him at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) so the feds could take custody. In all, Gutierrez spent around 15 hours in Laguna Beach Police custody and several more hours in a Los Angeles immigrant detention facility, according to a local news report. Apparently, Gutierrez wasn’t deported because he is protected by an Obama-era amnesty program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that temporarily shields illegal immigrants that came to the U.S. as children. Government figures show that more than100,000 illegal immigrants who have requested DACA have serious criminal histories that include murder, rape and assault charges.
Well it’s interchangeable and the results are still the same! The point is this should not be tolerated where tax payers are being burden with this crap. and if tax payers such as yourSelf want to bend over and be on the receiving end of a slip n slide then you will have no one to blame but your self!
Problem is, the voters of those states that do crap like this (Calif, NJ, NY, Mass, etc.) seem to want to bend over and be on the receiving end. And the sad part is that Calif, in particular, seems to become the model that the rest of the nation somehow adopts.
And somehow the rest of the nation – that would tell us they do NOT want this crap – doesn’t notice the boiling frog principle that allows this crap to ooze upon them.
It’s going to take some cataclysm to be the wake-up call for the rest of the nation. It will be something never seen in the history of this nation. That’s what it’s going to take.
How are the people of California not absolutely disgusted with their lawmakers and the fact that they’re harder and tax dollars that get taken out of their paycheck every two weeks are getting funneled into the pockets of illegal aliens! Are they all friggin brain dead?
