America’s favorite Sheriff David Clarke is with President Donald Trump when comes to his immigration policies and is like Trump calling for the elimination sanctuary cities by jailing even mayors and governors who don’t comply.
“I’m telling you right now folks, you charge one mayor, one governor, one council president that adopts these laws, this stuff is going to end right away,” Clarke said during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Clarke himself read U.S. code 1324, that puts criminal sanctions on anyone who attempts to conceal people living in the country illegally.
“which is what sanctuary cities do,” he said.
This term refers to the cities what choose to fail to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement officers that seek to make arrests of individuals in the country illegally.
This issue was put into the spotlight after the July 2015 death of Kathryn Steinle, who was murdered by a man that was living illegally in the U.S. He allegedly had numerous felonies and had also been deported multiple times previous to committing murder.
“President Donald Trump has made it very clear that it is high time — it is past time in America that we start aggressively enforcing the rule of law in America,” Clarke said.
The Sheriff argues that sanctuary cities are nothing but havens for criminal activity because they provide the exact cover for “criminal illegal aliens to continue to prey on not only law-abiding people but also illegal immigrants in this country.”
Illegal immigrants refuse to report crimes committed against them for fear of deportation, he says, and this leads to an underreporting of crime all due to the Sanctuary cities.
“That’s where the president is going to start: The deportation of criminal illegal aliens,” Clarke said. “I’ve made it clear that in helping President Trump get his arms around this serious problem of illegal immigration that I was going to use the resources that I have as the sheriff in Milwaukee County to help him accomplish that.”
