College Campus Police Won’t Enforce Immigration Laws Despite Border Patrol Presence
The shame of sanctuary cities that exist for the purpose of harboring and protecting illegal immigrants from the lawful consequences of their actions continues across the United States, despite the pattern of violent crime that follows the policy into the streets – assaults, rapes and even murders committed by those who should have been permanently deported when there was still time to prevent the crimes.
The subject is a political polestar – so much so that even Democrat presidential candidate was forced to retract her gut-level reaction to a particularly horrific and senseless crime committed in the most flagrant sanctuary city in the country, San Francisco, when she first called the city’s decision not to cooperate with the deportation of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal alien who had been deported five times before shooting a woman in public on a city pier, “a mistake.”
Clinton went on to say, “I have absolutely no support for a city that ignores the strong evidence that should be acted on,” but the next day, her campaign released an official statement supporting the liberal policy.
“Hillary Clinton believes that sanctuary cities can help further public safety, and she has defended those policies going back years.”
Now, a state university in that most liberal of states, has adopted the same policy on its campus in an effort to reassure its illegal immigrant students that they are, essentially, immune from the law.
California State University, San Marcos, in northern San Diego County, is sensitive to the illegals on campus and has announced publically that the school will not enforce immigration law or cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The formal statement of the policy that creates the “sanctuary campus” came in response to students’ “fears for their safety and wellbeing” when they saw ICE representatives at a school career fair.
The university pledged to announce the presence of the offensive federal law enforcement employees at such employment recruitment events in advance to ease the anxiety of those who are not lawfully present in the U.S.
The policy also informed the students that campus police are prohibited from making an inquiry about a person’s status because the purpose of the officers “is to create a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.”
Except, of course, anyone assaulted, raped or murdered by someone who has no business being there in the first place.
