Border agents say violent MS-13 recruiting at Arizona facility for new Central American arrivals
Not only does Arizona have stories, even Texas has problems with illegal immigrants in gangs. From story: “Texas state GOP Sen. Dan Patrick said earlier this week that roughly 100,000 illegally immigrants living in his state are gang members.”
California is another border state. And recent news stories of our San Jose and Santa Clara County supervisors encouraging cities and towns to take in illegal immigrant, quote “children,” makes one take a second look at our elected leaders in terms of “PUBLIC SAFETY”.
To San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Vice-Mayor Madison Nguyen, Santa Clara County Supervisors Dave Cortese and Cindy Chavez, Congress members Zoe Lofgren and Michael Honda: “How many illegal immigrants reside in Sanctuary County Santa Clara County and Sanctuary City San Jose? How many are gang members?”
To the lawful legal immigrants, United States citizens and vacationers from around the globe: To me, the above questions to local politicians will probablly go unanswered as, for example, the city of San Jose seemingly doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the number of illegal immigrants living living in local neighborhoods. The local politicians seem to care more about the folks here illegally than the folks who respect our borders and our laws.
To the legal immigrants, U.S. citizens and tourists from around the globe visiting San Jose and Santa Clara County: “Since San Jose and Santa Clara County are sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants, how many new gang members are being recruited to be your new neighbors?”
In my personal view, the elected officials of San Jose and Santa Clara County seem more interested in protecting illegal immigrants that they do about respecting United States laws on immigration, the rule of law or on representing folks who are against illegal immigrants, especially those illegal immigrants with “a history of serious and violent crime” living in our midst.
By the way, how many illegal immigrants does San Jose support now and how many more in the future? Tens of thousands, I estimate, reside here now because of San Jose’s sanctuary city policies, yet there are over 4,000 homeless living in the streets. See something wrong with this picture?
500,000 illegal aliens reside in the bay area, and what city with a million population has sanctuary city policies where gang members would feel right at home? Bingo! You’re right! San Jose, California.
Remember this posting when San Jose and Santa Clara politicians speak of “PUBLIC SAFETY” especially around election time.
Does your school restrict clothing attire because of gang problems? I know of one San Jose public school that does. Would you feel safe if your local school tells you kids have to wear uniforms because coloring of clothing identifies gang affiliation? How does that make you feel about “PUBLIC SAFETY”?
If police can’t ask immigration status of folks they stop and when the Santa Clara County politicians refuse to send fingerprints of folks arrested and sitting in county jail to Immigration and Customs Enfrocement (ICE), the city and county are just giving lip service to the term “PUBLIC SAFETY”, in my opinion.
