The Real Question Should Be: Safe Communities For Whom?
Thanks to the sanctuary city policies in effect now throughout the country, undocumented individuals who are currently facing charges such as murder, sex crimes and drug trafficking are free to wander the streets.
As ICE has repeatedly made clear, when local jurisdictions refuse to cooperate with federal law enforcement, they have betrayed their duty to protect the safety of the public. Here is another story from last week that reinforces that fact.
ICE agents were able to apprehend an illegal alien who was allegedly involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident in New York. Mexican national Jorge Flores-Villalba was arrested by local police after allegedly striking a New York mother with his vehicle and driving off on Christmas Eve, but was then quickly released.
