    Should sanctuary cities be held legally responsible for the illegals they shelter?

    Should sanctuary cities be held legally responsible for the illegals I.E. criminals they shelter?


    I say yes. It would be like a security guard who allows trespassers into the building and then tries to act like it is not his fault when one of the trespassers assaults someone,steals and or vandalizes property. Most people with at least a ounce of common sense would say the security guard should be fired and forced to reimburse the property owner for the theft and damage that occurred and sued by the victims. The judge would be right that the city can not prevent crime but in the case of an illegal alien the city did not have to shelter that criminal,those people were victimized as a direct result of the city allowing trespassers/criminals to stay. Had that illegal been deported those people would have not been victimized by that illegal.



    Judge tosses sanctuary suit in S.F. killings
    The family of a father and two sons who were shot dead on a San Francisco street in 2008 can't hold the city responsible for failing to turn their alleged killer over to immigration authorities after earlier arrests, a judge has ruled.
    The city isn't legally to blame for any crimes Edwin Ramos, a suspected illegal immigrant from El Salvador, committed after his release for the offenses he committed as a juvenile, Judge Charlotte Woolard of San Francisco Superior Court said Monday.

    Cities "generally are not liable for failing to protect individuals against crime," Woolard said.

    "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"

    I somewhat agree with you. My change is the elected officials should personally be held responsible. Holdling the city responsible opens the door to law suites that the tax payer may have to pay for. I like in Arizona and its amazing how some politicians cater to the illegals.

    Not only should they be held legally responsible, but all federal money should be withheld from any sanctuary city while they are protecting criminal illegal aliens. They want to do it? Fine. They can pay their own way.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So called "sanctuary" cities should be denied all federal funding for all projects, being permanently lost on a daily pro-rated basis, until the sanctuary policy is reversed and the politicians who implemented them resign.

    Makes good sense but how would you accomplish that when its the 'wolf' who has set the stage to allow this to happen in the first place!

    That's beside the point, while Americans refuse to admit the real purpose of the Second Amendment.

    But didn't the city elect the officials?

    yes, my point is would you want your tax dollars used to pay off some "santuary city" lawsuit. If we held the elected official personally resonsible, I would bet some of the bs laws would quickly get off the books.
    Withholding fed tax dollars is ok with me. Living in a border State, I am tired of the illegals.
