    Lawsuits challenge sanctuary policies, Illegals' victims say cities liable

    A city should be held liable for it's sanctuary policies.Hopefully these people are successful or at least hopefully it cost these sanctuary cities a lot of money in the process.

    Washington Times - Lawsuits challenge sanctuary policies


    Margaret Rains and Haley Tepe were sitting down to enjoy ice cream at a Baskin-Robbins in Aurora, Colo., when a sport utility vehicle driven by an illegal immigrant sent two cars plowing into the shop, leaving three dead and the two women injured.

    Now the women are taking action against the city of Denver, arguing that its sanctuary-city policy contributed to the Sept. 4 crash. The driver, 23-year-old Francis Hernandez, had been arrested numerous times by Denver police, but was never reported to federal immigration authorities.

    "Despite these numerous arrests and the readily ascertainable illegal-immigrant status of Mr. Hernandez, at no time were proper procedures relating to the reporting, detention and handling of illegal immigrants followed by the law-enforcement agencies of the city of Denver," said the claim, filed on behalf of Ms. Rains.

    Her attorney, Stuart Morse, filed the claim Nov. 4 as a precursor to a lawsuit against the city of Denver. He has said that he also may file claims against other Colorado jurisdictions, including the city of Aurora, where Mr. Hernandez was arrested.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How moronic. Suing a city because you don't like the laws? Give me a freaking break. Talk about frivolous lawsuits.

    "I lost all my money to Bernie Madoff. Therefore I'm going to sue New York City for not sending all Jews to extermination camps. If they had done so, Madoff wouldn't have robbed me."

    "I got into a car accident with a driver who had been pulled over by the cops for speeding ten minutes before the accident. Therefore I'm going to sue the local police department. If they hadn't pulled him over, he would've driven down that street ten minutes earlier, and he wouldn't have hit my car."

    "I lost my house during Hurricane Katrina. Therefore I'm going to sue the Giza Zoo in Egypt. If it hadn't been built, they never would've housed the butterfly that flapped its wings that caused the breeze that developed into a wind that developed into a storm that developed into a hurricane that hit New Orleans."

    The city is encouraging illegal criminal activities with it's sanctuary policies Illegal immigration is a crime, it is a misdemeanor the first offense and a felony the second offense. This is no different than a city willfully allowing people to steal from businesses and homeowners,if those businesses and homeowners are harmed as a result of the city's actions then they should be able to sue.

    Not the same thing nor are they even close.
