CNN discovers ICE is going where the illegal aliens are

CNN has the big scoop:
Source: ICE is targeting 'sanctuary cities' with raids
Well, that is where the illegal aliens are.


The Blaze reported last month:
According to a new report by Pew Research Center, 61 percent of the 11 million illegal immigrants thought to be living in the United States reside in just 20 cities, nearly all of which are “sanctuary cities” where law enforcement have been instructed to not enforce federal immigration statues unless an illegal immigrant has been charged with other crimes.
The report says that 6.8 million illegal immigrants live in cities including Los Angeles, Washington, San Francisco, Dallas and New York, all sanctuary cities. Phoenix, Houston and Orlando also made the list with high numbers of undocumented immigrants but are the only cities on the list that don’t qualify as sanctuary cities, according to The Center for Immigration Studies.
So it would make sense to go to where the illegal aliens are.

But the CNN report today by Maria Santana made it seem sinister:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been targeting so-called "sanctuary cities" with increased enforcement operations in an effort to pressure those jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration agents, a senior US immigration official with direct knowledge of ongoing ICE actions told CNN.
Her assignment of a motive to this effort ("in an effort to pressure those jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration agents") in the First Paragraph comes despite an absolute denial by ICE of any such effort at coercion. ICE is going where the illegal aliens are.

The denial was buried in Paragraph 13.

Maria Santana opened her report with 12 paragraphs accusing ICE not of going after sanctuary cities -- never mentioning that the vast majority of illegal aliens live in sanctuary cities because those are the areas where they are less likely to be discovered and deported.

That's because sanctuary cities provide -- and this will blow your mind -- sanctuary to people who defy our immigration laws.

Begrudgingly, she gave ICE two paragraphs explaining itself, followed by six paragraphs of unexplaining it by quoting a "senior immigration official who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity" and "officials in several sanctuary cities" and "a representative from a pro-immigrant organization" and "pro-immigrant advocates."

The piece went on like that, ending:
President Donald Trump has argued that sanctuary cities endanger public safety and national security by harboring criminals and failing to turn over suspected and convicted criminals to federal authorities, thus the need for coordination with local authorities and enhanced enforcement operations.
Throughout the campaign and since taking office, he has made cracking down on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities a top priority.
Officials in most of these sanctuary cities have responded, however, by remaining steadfast in their commitment to sanctuary policies. But while some cities, including Los Angeles and New York, have recently adopted additional measures to protect their undocumented immigrant population, every indication is that they should brace themselves for more raids.
By couching the ICE raids as a retaliatory effort instead of ICE going where the illegal aliens are, CNN deceived readers and viewers. Not reporting that most illegal aliens live in sanctuary cities and the like is an error of omission that renders Santana's report Fake News.

Imagine a news organization saying police in London shot and killed Khalid Masood on Wednesday -- without mentioning he had already killed four people in his attack on Parliament.

  3. The libs in these cities think that federal and state jurisdiction do not apply to them. The one thing that reinforces this kind of thinking is when they begin electing their own prosecutors and can decide on the basis of politics what will be prosecuted and what won't. This is the nursery where they learn the art of small scale dictatorship.

  4. Looking for a post on the pulling of the "healthcare" bill.
    I'll just say this: I don't think the strategy of trying to make Trump look bad by putting forward worthless legislation put together by the industry involved is going to work out well for the Republican establishment. If they won't work with our president, we will elect people who can, whateverarty they might belong to.
    Got that you worthless cuck, Ryan?

  5. apparently it's Nazi like to target where the illegals are. I guess we should be targeting only upper middle class neighborhoods with homes 500k and higher? that would be more inclusive.

    1. We have to be fair and give the poor illegals a chance to escape deportation. It just wouldn't be right to look for them where they are. That's not who we are. LOL!

  7. As Willie Sutton said when asked why he robbed banks, "That's where the money is".

    And the hunting will only get better. Word is the illegals are flocking there.

  9. Since the Feds decide where the illegal aliens and "refugees" are settled, how about moving all the new ones to Hawaii. I hear there's a Judge there who' just hunky dory with settling them in the USA.
    If there are too many, put some in Chappaqua.
    And Georgetown.
    And Chicago.

  12. The 1950s Operation Wetback got many more to self-deport than were rounded up and deported. I still say send in the marshals and arrest a mayor who has publicly said he/she would illegally protect illegal aliens. Then we will see if this crap going on will allow the feds to arrest any official who supports sheltering illegals
