Cities are not enforcing U.S. immigration laws

-A +A
This country is built on the rule of law. Or is it? When it comes to illegal aliens and the rule of law, I can see that it does not. For those of us who believe in the rule of law, and securing our country, it is not a matter of Republican versus Democrat. It is the rule of law versus the destruction of the law. Here is a little reminder to those who think that we citizens must just sit back and allow mayors like Gavin Newsom to just thumb their nose at the laws of this land. A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he or she assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment, encouraging that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assisting illegal aliens due to personal convictions. I think the mayors of the 129 documented illegal alien sanctuaries across America should be respecting the law — something that is not popular in cities like San Francisco. Look up California Penal Codes Pertaining to Illegals. Yes, California does have laws and it is time that they are obeyed by all, including those who come to the U.S. illegally. Look up California Penal Code 834b, ask yourself how a city can tell its law enforcement officers to not enforce the laws on the books. Joan Tofanelli Foresthill
