DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Confirms They Are Preparing To Arrest Sanctuary City Leaders


Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to arrest illegal immigrants out in the community.

Mr. Homan told The Washington Times last July that he wanted to see local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling if they shielded illegal immigrants through sanctuary policies.

Mr. Homan repeated that demand in an interview with Fox News earlier this year, setting off a firestorm of criticism. Washington Times

The clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of time before Trump’s DHS obtains a warrant for leaders of cities and states that hold sanctuary city policies, and welcome or encourage illegal immigrants to stay without being afraid of legal arrest and deportation.

This list includes the names of people like Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, DiBlasio of New York and even Jerry Brown, Governor of California.

As the Washington Times has reported, Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of Homeland Security has confirmed on Tuesday that her department has requested that federal prosecutors see if they can come up with criminal charges that would punish these sanctuary cities for refusing to cooperate with government deportation efforts.

The Secretary of Homeland Security told the Senate Judiciary Committee that: “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available.”

Reportedly, Nielsen’s confirmation came after California passed a new sanctuary law.

This law harshly restricts cooperation of the state or any of its localities with federal deportation efforts.

Tom Homan, the Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has said that such policies put to increase the risk of his officers and local communities because they would be forced to make the arrests out in the community.

Last July, Homan said for The Washington Times that he wishes to see these local officials charged as complicit in human smuggling provided that they continue to protect illegal aliens with their sanctuary policies.

He restated that demand in a recent interview for the Fox News, for which he brought a lot of criticism upon himself.

What do you think about this?

Is Homan’s demand on point?

    I can remember the prisoner of war camps on Galveston Island during WWII For the most part those guys never had it so good—and not many wanted to ‘escape’.

    Not only that. If an illegal commits a crime while under the “protection” of a sanctuary or state, that leader, (mayor or governor) should be charged as an accessory in the crime

    Illegal aliens are lawbreakers who must suffer the full force of the Law. Deport them

    I would think that aiding and abetting is a crime. They are harboring fugitives that have no right to be in the USA. Stop tip toeing around and get to work. We all no that we cannot please everyone. Stop funding these cities. If they are working against the laws set in place for legal immigration they should be punished.

    Sanctuary Cities are an insult and a slap in the face of us that entered the United States legally . We followed every requirement in order to come into this country. We became citizens and accepted the law of the land. We thrived and succeed because we adapted.
