Are Sanctuary Cities the New “No Go Zones?”

Depending upon what city you live in, here in the United States of America can determine what kind of treatment you receive depending upon your beliefs.  Kristen Gillibrand attacked for her job while trying to attend a movie.  Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked to leave a restaurant because of her job.

Whether or not you believe in open borders, or stricter border enforcement, its best not to address it within sanctuary cities.  At a Huntington Park city council meeting that got rather heated in August of 2017, when the question of the Brown Act violation came into play for discussing SB-54 many members supporting Trump were chanted out of the meeting after the police were called.  Parents who attended meeting were encouraging the children there to chant “Mexico” over and over following the end of the meeting. Afterwards, a Trump supporter was assaulted and injured.

Thedefinition of Sanctuary city is ambiguous, however to simplify it, it’s a city (or a county, or a state) that limits its cooperation with federal immigration enforcement agents in order to protect low-priority immigrants from deportation, while still turning over those who have committed serious crimes.

However, anyone who hides a wanted criminal from federal officials could be prosecuted for harboring a fugitive. According to 18 U.S. Code § 1071, it is “an offense to harbor or conceal any person for whose arrest a warrant or process has been issued, so as to prevent the fugitive’s discovery and arrest.” Also, 8 U.S. Code § 1324 prohibits sheltering illegal aliens from authorities. Breaking these laws can cost up to five years behind bars.

Sanctuary cities are becomming the Eutopean version of No Go Zones. No longer are differences of opinion safe from bullying or harassment.  What real putpose can harboring criminals contribute to America?  Whag good are the men and women patrolling our borders if once through get sanctuary?
