ICE chief wants to slap smuggling charges on leaders of sanctuary cities

The country’s top immigration enforcement officer says he is looking into charging sanctuary city leaders with violating federal anti-smuggling laws because he is fed up with local officials putting their communities and his officers at risk by releasing illegal immigrants from jail.

Thomas Homan, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also told Americans to expect more work site enforcement targeting unscrupulous employers and more 287(g) agreements with willing police and sheriff’s departments that want to help get illegal immigrants off their streets. Eventually, he said, ICE will break the deportation records of 409,849 migrants set in 2012 under President Obama.

“I think 409,000 is a stretch this year, but if [the Justice Department] keeps going in the direction they’re going in, if we continue to expand our operational footprint, I think we’re going to get there,” he told The Washington Times. “Our interior arrests will go up. They’re going to top last year’s for sure.”

    But it was Okay when Obama was in power. Just like how Jean Chretien and Paul Martin left Omar Khadr and Maher Arar in jail cells to rot but now the CBC Blames Harper .
    Obama just bought his 4th mansion that was $8.2 million. One of the other mansion is having a wall built around it.
    Hmmmm, Kenya is building a 400 mile long wall to keep out somali terrorists.

    Acting ICE Director Homan is talking tough against illegal immigration now, but not so much when he served under Obama. At that time, he was quite the enthusiastic enforcement dismantler, at least according to officers who were there:

    Officer [Chris] Crane continued, “I guess Secretary Kelly and Homan think if Homan just says a bunch of hardline immigration comments now, we will all forget what he did for Obama. They think we will all just let it go and not talk about the fact that Homan praised Obama’s immigration policies, helped to write them, and even received an award from Obama for having done so. Homan somehow convinces people who support Obama that he is really on their open borders side, while also convincing immigration hawks that he is really on their side. It’s actually quite spineless and the ICE officers risking their lives for our country deserve a better leader.”
