One can just imagine how “law abiding immigrants” who’ve come to America “legally” and have gone through the lengthy process of becoming a U.S. citizen must feel about a government that no longer respects them or the laws they’ve sworn to uphold.
It must no doubt be confusing to the millions upon millions of legal immigrants watching their illegal counterparts destroy the goodwill and the very fabric of what that lady in the harbor had envisioned.
Moreover a government that rewards lawlessness and malfeasance eventually ceases to be a civil governing body, and eventually becomes nothing more than a corrupt system holding on to power by intimidation, fear and outright bribes, as demonstrated by the recent payout of $342 million dollars of taxpayer money to those cities that harbor (in many instances) “illegal criminal aliens.”
The bribes were handed out by the Justice Department to those “sanctuary cities” to continue ignoring federal immigration laws, which as prevented local law enforcement (because of political pressure) from cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Weekend host, Tucker Carlson said on "Fox and Friends Weekend" that this begs the question:
"This is outrageous not only because it means taxpayers are subsidizing the obstruction of enforcement, and they're not complying with federal law, but the result is that criminal aliens who should be deported instead get released back into the communities and are there to keep threatening people," Vaughan said. "So it's a public safety problem as well."
Here is a breakdown of where the money has gone:
California topped the list with $132,409,635. Connecticut got more than $69,000,000.
Two cities—New York and Chicago—got $60,091,942 and $28,523,222 respectively from the DOJ.
Philadelphia followed with $16,505,312. South Florida’s Miami-Dade County received $10,778,815, Milwaukee, Wisconsin got $7,539,572, Cook County, Illinois $6,018,544, Clark County, Nevada $6,257,9851 and Orleans Parish, Louisiana $4,737,964.
Perhaps those that have been directly effected, assaulted, robbed and murdered at the hands of criminal aliens, or have spent countless weeks and years preparing to become US citizens, are the ones best to answer Carlson’s question.
