Ol' Heel Spurs, Spicer, and the Trumpkins are going nuts over Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy's memo to Connecticut law enforcement and other state and local entities.
Malloy: “Law enforcement should not take action that is solely to enforce federal immigration law,” read Malloy’s memo to police chiefs. “The federal government cannot mandate states to investigate and enforce actions that have no nexus to the enforcement of Connecticut law or local ordinances.”
Malloy is addressing actions that 'solely' enforce immigration law. Not violations of state law. And, his memo is non-binding; he cannot force compliance from state and local authorities on this.
State and local law enforcement has limited resources. Rounding up a collection of illegals, undocumented workers, mojados, whatever you want to call them, who have otherwise not violated any state or local laws, drains those limited resources. If Ol' Heel Spurs and his Trumpkins want state and local law enforcement to start doing that, they better start diggin' deep for the detention facilities and the budgeting to run them, and the hiring of all the new staff to enforce federal immigration. It ain't happenin' on Ol' Heel Spurs' good looks.
The Trumpkins are making much of a vicious murder a couple of days back, up in Connecticut, by an illegal. Apparently, it's all Malloy's fault. Yet, Malloy has never even remotely advocated letting people like Oscar Hernandez, run around loose. Here's some background on Hernadez:
"Just over five years earlier, in December 2011, Hernandez was convicted in state Superior Court in Stamford of third-degree assault, second-degree threatening and reckless endangerment for a domestic violence incident against his girlfriend at the time, according to court records.
He walked out of the courtroom with a conditional discharge, a court order to stay away from the victim and court notice that he was going to be deported.
“Oscar Obedio Hernandez, a citizen of El Salvador, was issued a final order of removal by an immigration judge on Oct. 29, 2013. He was removed from the United States by ICE officers in Hartford, Connecticut on Nov. 27, 2013,” said Shawn Neudauer, spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
2013. Ah. It must be Obama's fault. If we had that wall, Hernandez would never have gotten back into the country. Probably wouldn't have gotten here in the first place.
Here's a better one, another illegal who committed murder in Connecticut:
"An illegal immigrant who stabbed a young Connecticut woman to death after completing a 15-year sentence for murder couldn’t be deported by the U.S. government because his homeland, which receives billions in aid from Uncle Sam, wouldn’t take him back—three times! So federal authorities released the violent criminal, a Haitian national, and didn’t even bother tracking his whereabouts allowing him to commit yet another heinous crime."
He murdered Chadwick just five months after he was released from prison after serving 17 years for attempted murder in a separate case. Failed attempts to deport Jacques back to Haiti led ICE officials to set him free in early 2015.
Probably Obama's fault on that one, too. Why wouldn't Haiti take that guy back? Because ... he had no documentation to prove he was Haitian. But Ol' Heel Spurs and Spicer don't want to point fingers at Malloy on that one because ...
Chadwick’s mother, Wendy Hartling, says she is working on introducing new laws in Connecticut to help change deportation policies and believes that had the ICE and The Department of Homeland Security done their jobs, her daughter might still be here.
How many illegals walk around with passports or anything else that proves their original citizenship? If Ol' Heel Spurs' ICE is going to use that lacking to justify letting 'em loose ... what's the point of all these roundups? Where are they going to stash 'em? Deportation 'centers?' Vast camps in the desert to hold these people?
