The illegal aliens' crime wave - and what you can do about it. Comment by Jeff Mazzella.
10/09/2007

"... 55,322 criminal aliens were arrested a total of at least 459,614 times, averaging over eight arrests per alien. The Department of Justice expressed its surprise at the 'extremely high' rate of re-arrests for criminal aliens when it found that that 73 criminal aliens in a study group were arrested a total of 429 times." That's according to Senator Jon Kyl, quoting a Government Accounting Office (GAO) study in National Review Online. Reflect on those numbers for just a minute. This GAO study is only counting the number of arrests! And that should bring two questions immediately to mind: How many actual crimes did these 55,322 criminal aliens actually commit? How is it even conceivable that each of these illegal aliens could be arrested on average a total of almost nine times? To at least partially answer the second question, you only need to look at so-called "sanctuary cities." Sanctuary cities are localities across the United States where liberal mayors and local legislators have instituted policies that prohibit law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agents and prohibit them from even questioning the immigration status of anyone they arrest. But to add more insult to injury, many American cities like New York even allow illegal aliens to obtain free health care, food stamps and a whole assortment of government goodies without having their immigration status questioned. Last week we asked you to help us put a stop to sanctuary cities and since that time you have sent over 10,000 Blast Faxes, made phone calls and written letters to our elected officials in Washington. And you are having a tremendous effect! But we need you to do it again. We must keep up the pressure, because even though we stopped them from granting amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens a few months ago, too many of our elected leaders -- still resentful and smarting from the sting you gave them --are not exactly in a rush to stop our illegal immigration epidemic! The foot dragging must stop here and now and only you have the power to make it happen!

Now that Congress has returned from its August recess, demand that our elected leaders cut-off all federal funds to so-called sanctuary cities. Remind them that so-called "sanctuary cities" are defying Congress and thumbing their noses at the American people. Congress can and must force these cities to obey federal immigration laws. http://www.cfiflistmanager.org/sanctuarycitiesii.html AOL Members Use This Hyperlink If the above hyperlink does not function, please copy and paste it into the address bar of your browser. Make no mistake, some of these liberals are actually proud of their defiance. Recently, Kristen Powers, a Democrat political analyst and frequent Fox News contributor called illegal immigration a "human right." But Powers is not the only one self-righteously pounding her chest. Here's what Pam Meister with Family Security Matters wrote in an article appropriately titled "Flipping the Bird to Federal Law and American Citizens": "New Haven, Connecticut, which recently began an ID card program for 'undocumented' immigrants who can prove residency within city limits. The cards allow the holders to open bank accounts, apply for housing and more. Mayor John DeStefano defended the program by saying, 'I think New Haven is doing something that makes sense for New Haven. Service to one another in community, more than waving an American flag, defines the spirit of our soul.'' (Not having to wave that American flag is a good idea, since many illegal aliens prefer to fly the Mexican flag.)" "San Francisco, California. Mayor Gavin Newsom told a group of (mostly) Latinos not long ago, 'I will not allow any of my department heads or anyone associated with this city to cooperate in any way shape or form with these raids. We are a sanctuary city, make no mistake about it.'" Liberal mayors like DeStefano and Newsom are more than defiant. They're thumbing their noses at you and me and at every American who believes in law and order. This madness must be put to a stop!

And of course you remember the story of Jose Carranza, a Peruvian national, who forced three college students to kneel against a wall behind an elementary school and shot them to death at close range. Carranza, an illegal alien who possessed a fake Social Security card, had already been charged with horrific crimes against a 5-year-old girl, but this self-appointed executioner was allowed to roam free on bail while he was awaiting trial for that crime. He should have been deported on the spot. Why weren't the Feds notified earlier about his illegal status in our country? Because Newark, New Jersey is a sanctuary city. Former Senator presidential candidate Fred Thompson spoke of the effects of a "sanctuary policy" in yet another major city: "The consequences of 'sanctuary cities' may be most obvious in the city that became the first in 1979 -- Los Angeles. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, a confidential California Department of Justice study from the mid-1990's showed then that at least 60 percent of the members of L.A.'s most violent gangs, with membership in the tens of thousands, were illegal aliens. Of all outstanding murder warrants in Los Angeles, 95 percent are for illegal aliens. Frustrated police say they are powerless to pick up even well-known, previously deported felons." Heather Mac Donald, writing in the Manhattan Institute's City Journal, shows why things have gotten so bad in a city now controlled by militant pro-amnesty groups: " In Los Angeles, for example, dozens of members of a ruthless Salvadoran prison gang have sneaked back into town after having been deported for such crimes as murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and drug trafficking. Police officers know who they are and know that their mere presence in the country is a felony. Yet should a cop arrest an illegal gangbanger for felonious reentry, it is he who will be treated as a criminal, for violating the LAPD's rule against enforcing immigration law." And she shows how this policy affects the morale of police officers trying to maintain law and order in a city now under control of the militant pro-amnesty crowd: According to Mac Donald, such laws testify to the sheer political power of immigrant lobbies, a power so irresistible that police officials shrink from even mentioning the illegal-alien crime wave. "We can't even talk about it," says a frustrated LAPD captain. "People are afraid of a backlash...." Another LAPD commander in a gang-infested district sighs: "I would get a firestorm of criticism if I talked about [the policy]." Neither captain would go on the record with those remarks. And the same thing in Miami: In September, Miami police arrested a Honduran visa violator for seven vicious rapes. The previous year, Miami cops had the suspect in custody for lewd and lascivious molestation, without checking his immigration status. Had they done so, they would have discovered his visa overstay, a deportable offense, and so could have prevented his horrible crimes. "We have shied away from unnecessary involvement dealing with immigration issues," explains Miami Police Department's spokesman, Detective Delrish Moss, choosing his words carefully, "because of our large immigrant population."

Here are some more figures: In 2003, according to the Government Accounting Office (GAO), illegal aliens comprised 27 percent of the federal prison population. At that time the GAO estimated that some 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in federal, state and local prisons and jails. Between 2002 and 2005, the federal government alone spent $5.8 billion incarcerating illegal aliens. That was four years ago... Think of the wasted taxpayer money and resources we would be able to save if America's cities would stop circumventing federal immigration laws. But we can't do this when over 60 cities -- virtually all of which send liberals to Congress -- refuse to submit to federal law as they provide sanctuary for criminal illegal aliens. Now is the perfect chance to continue the fight against illegal immigration and bring these sanctuary cities to their knees -- because not one of them is willing to give up a thin dime of federal funding.

Congressman Tancredo makes the obvious point: "Is every city in America going to establish its own immigration policy? We pretend that we have a single immigration law, and in fact, we do. But sanctuary cities are in effect creating many different immigration jurisdictions. There are cities in America where having no legal immigration status is meaningless." America is in a state of near anarchy. Our cities are held hostage by foreign gangs who rob, pillage and murder -- almost at will. Local officials, afraid to cross them, defy federal law because they have no choice. And the U.S. Department of Justice does nothing, except prosecute Border Patrol agents who do their job too well. Tancredo's bill is a first step toward reclaiming our country. Let's support it and give Tancredo (and those Members of Congress who are serious about stopping illegal immigration) the support he needs.

For many will come in My name saying, 'I am the Christ' (the word Christ means the anointed one), and will mislead many. (This is happening now. Famous preachers claim they 'have the anointing' and that you too can be like Christ and 'have the anointing.' These men fill huge stadiums and many are indeed misled by them.)
