LA mayor: Immigration arrests could cause a ‘tinderbox’

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) in a recent radio interview said he is concerned that increased Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids under the Trump administration could cause already high tensions in his city to boil over.

    Criminals typically object to being arrested. Which OTHER crimes do you want to ignore? Rape? Murder? Robbery?

    Good, may it burn down the entire damn county!
    Burn baby, burn.

    Mayor Garcetti is suggesting that the Mexicans should riot if they feel displeased about law enforcement occurring in his city.

      That’s exactly what he’s saying.
      Turn off L.A. Federal funding for everything.

        Isn’t he encouraging criminal behavior?

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Yep, just not directly.
          I say let the city burn.

    Rule of Law will cause “tensions in [your] city to boil over”? Well then, you’re a shitty Mayor and it’s your fault.

      Mexicans, Muslims, what’s the difference?

  • JoKeR

    Let’s not enforce the laws, because illegals who don’t have any respect for the law, will disobey the laws!

  • Shebel

    Why not get rid of all the Police ? They are a waste of money.
    Make everthing LEGAL.

      Did you copy that idea off of the BLM / Black Panthers website? 🙂
