Sanctuary Cities Face Aid Cuts as DOJ Tightens Screws…

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration escalated its confrontation with so-called sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities, threatening them anew Friday with the loss of grant money if they do not remove certain barriers.

The Justice Department sent letters to officials in New York City, Philadelphia, California and other places that were singled out last year by the agency’s inspector general for regulations that interfere with the ability of police or sheriffs to communicate with federal immigration authorities about the status of prisoners in their custody.

“Many of these jurisdictions are also crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime,” the Justice Department said in a news release.

The agency cited the rising murder rate in Chicago and cast blame for gang murders in New York on what it labeled a “soft on crime” stance. It also complained that after the recent arrests of 11 members of the MS-13 Salvadoran street gang, the deputy police chief of Santa Cruz, Calif., had stressed that the raid was unrelated to immigration instead of “warning other MS-13 members that they would be next.”

President Trump ran on a platform of cracking down on illegal immigration and issued an executive order during his first week in office aimed at starting that process. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that recipients of federal law enforcement grants were required to comply with a 1996 law that bars the local authorities from forcing officials to withhold information from federal immigration authorities about people’s immigration status.

The recipients of the letters were warned that as a condition of receiving 2016 grants, they must certify by June 30 that they were in compliance with the law. That enforced a deadline on a policy first put in place under the Obama administration, which announced the policy last July but gave cities that were not in compliance time to adjust.

After Mr. Sessions’s remarks last month, several municipal leaders vowed defiance; Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City said that he would fight in court any attempt to strip funding from the city.

On Friday, Nisha Agarwal, the commissioner for the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs in New York, said the city was prepared to respond by the June 30 deadline. She declined to say what the city would tell the government.

Mr. de Blasio and other top city officials also batted back against the “soft on crime” label in the Justice Department’s statement.

“We did not become the safest city in America by being ‘soft on crime,’” Mr. de Blasio said, standing with the city’s police commissioner, James P. O’Neill, both stone-faced, in Police Headquarters. “This is an insult, this statement.”

He said it “denigrates” the Police Department and its officers, was “absurd on its face” and ignored a quarter-century of progress on crime. New York City is currently at or near historic lows in all areas of major crime, from murder to auto theft.

The Justice Department responded to Mr. de Blasio by doubling down on its comment, calling his administration’s policies “soft on crime” in a second statement.

The dollar amounts for the grants in question are relatively small compared with the overall budgets of the governments that received the letters. For example, according to the Justice Department, the City of New York received a $4.3 million grant in 2016.

Other places sent the letter included the State of California, which received a total of $10.4 million, divvied up among 128 cities and counties; Chicago and Cook County, where that city is, and which shared a $2.3 million grant; New Orleans, $265,832; Las Vegas’s Clark County, $11,537; Philadelphia, $1.7 million; Miami-Dade County, $481,347; and Milwaukee County, $937,932.

Each of the letters was signed by Alan R. Hanson, the acting director of the Office of Justice Programs, which administers the Byrne law enforcement grant program. Until Jan. 20, Mr. Hanson was a top aide to Senator Richard C. Shelby, Republican of Alabama; Mr. Sessions had been the other Alabama senator until he took the helm at the Justice Department.

“Failure to comply with this condition could result in the withholding of grant funds, suspension or termination of the grant, ineligibility for future O.J.P. grants or subgrants, or other action, as appropriate,” Mr. Hanson wrote.

Illegal Alien Charged for Alleged Rape, Murder of Sanctuary City Woman

By Ryan Saavedra

Investigators say that an illegal alien sexually assaulted the victim and strangled her to death.

Bulmaro Mejia-Maya, 29, was arrested in Jacksonville, Florida, on Wednesday and was charged with the first-degree murder of Tiffany Thrasher, 33. Other charges Mejia-Maya faces include home invasion and aggravated criminal sexual assault, according to CBS Chicago.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) filed a detainer on Bulmaro Mejia-Maya after his arrest by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on April 19, 2017,” ICE said in an email to Breitbart Texas.

Thrasher was found dead in her apartment by police after her friends requested a well-being check on her for missing Easter services.

Investigators say that Mejia-Maya lived in the same apartment complex as Thrasher although it was not clear if the two had met.

Authorities say they tied Mejia-Maya to the murder based on physical evidence discovered and on interviews in which Mejia-Maya made “incriminating statements.”

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has openly welcomed illegal aliens to his “sanctuary city.”

“We are still and always will be a welcoming city whether you’re an immigrant from Poland or Pakistan, Ireland or India, Mexico or Moldova where my grandfather came. If you believe in the America dream we welcome you to Chicago,” Emanuel said.

Emanuel has gone so far as to create a new ID program to ensure that illegal aliens get government services without exposing their identities to federal authorities.

“The new program was unveiled at a Chicago City Council meeting on Wednesday, and it protects illegal aliens from federal oversight by not collecting any copies of identification documents presented when illegals apply for the identification card,” Breitbart previously reported.

Why Is Obama Hiding In Tahiti For A Month At A 13K Per Night Island Resort?

It does seem a little odd that Hussein Obama is renting a room or bungalow at a secluded island resort where the guest rooms range in price from $2,150 to $13,244 per night. Of course, we taxpayers are stuck paying the bill for his Secret Service protection to stay in those very pricey accommodations for a month. And that’s if he doesn’t invite the Mooch or their pretend kids who have no baby or child pictures with the Obamas over to stay with him.

Mooch might not be fit for travel, if the speculation about genital removal surgery is true. It must be rather painful, but it’ll be worth it. No price can be put on the freedom of being able to dance on “Ellen” in any pants she/he wants to without worrying about gear slippage.

But Obama doesn’t need to go to Tahiti just to get away from the Mooch and the post surgery crabbiness. Sure, they’ve got a book deal, but he’s got a house in DC and one in Palm Springs, right? If he just wanted it for writing he could have gone to Chicago to be near egghead terrorist and writer Bill Ayers. What is the advantage of going to a secluded resort in a country beyond the reach of most media cameras?

Sure, the spas in Tahiti are probably nicer than the bathhouses he’s used to in Chicago and elsewhere around the US, but what happens in Tahiti really does stay in Tahiti, so that could be it. It’s particularly likely when what happens in Tahiti is a meeting with George Soros, high level terrorists or other anti-America global communists to brainstorm about the next phase of the agitation for the takeover of America and Obama’s return to power.

Obama is staying at Marlon Brando’s private retreat on Tetiaroa atoll, originally purchased by the actor in the 1960s. Naturally, his people have been tight-lipped about what he’s doing there, with no political meetings having been announced. Did Obama remember to arrange for Russian houseboys? Hopefully they’ve got surveillance cameras and TMZ has contacts with the right hotel security officer.

What’s REALLY happening in Sweden?

Trump was right. Sweden has massive problems with immigration. Debate over.

I live in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is even worse than you can imagine! Now in 2017 native Swedes have for the first time become a minority among newborns in the city. This is from a 100% Swedish city just 30 years ago. The city is extremely segregated, the leftist upper middle class white people live in segregated suburbs where they never have to meet a single migrant and can keep voting for the muslim party (“miljö partiet”) without facing the conequences. At least untill very recently, now the migrants are flooding into all parts of the city and it’s too late to do anything. Homeless young men from the central asian steppes and Marocco roam the streets in gangs, harrasing any girl when they get the chance. Arabs and Africans live in segregated ghettos under sharia law. Middle eastern mafia clans owns all the clubs and can park their untaxed BMW X6 in the middle of the street, no one dare oppose them. Swedes trying to form resistance are brutally beaten down by the regime security forces and the secret inteligence agency. Voicing anti-regime sentiment can cost you your job. Worse still, Swedes are brainwashed from elementary school that they are dirty and need to be punished for their ancestry. The Swedish regime made a special request to the UN to “undefine” Swedes as a people and instead claimed that the roma people (from Pakistan) are the natives of Sweden, that’s genocide! A large proportion of the migrants are young men, so large that in certain age groups there are almost 30% more men than women! Swedish girls will take migrant men in the belief that the only way to clense themselves from “colonialism” and “racism” is to not have a native swedish man.

I’m from Sweden. It’s been really bad here for a long time. Especially for people who are independent and creative and want freedom. The obedient, state depandant slaves, are doing fine in some parts we call “Bullerbyn”, or Lidingö or Nacka. (Not Rinkeby och Malmö.) The politicians and state employees are extreemly corrupt at the high level. They will easily destroy anyone to uphold the image of the most perfect country in the world. Hypocrites Paradise. When the state turns an evil eye on you, for any reason, you risk becomming totally destroyed. People are losing jobs, relations, family, homes for just having a normal, questioning nature. ANYTHING that critizises the state and the banks is labled as racist, nazist, anti semite, yada yada.

In 5 years time we’ll be discussing the Swedish refugee crisis as millions of Swedes flee their own country to avoid genocide.

What the hell is wrong with white people? Why are so many of us obsessed with committing collective suicide? The West is like Jonestown on a civilizational scale.

I’ve lived in Paris most of my life (i’m french 24yo) Paris’ greatness makes it a unique city, it could be an independent country. The leftists and the liberals RUINED it. They absolutely destroyed it. Paki shops everywhere, kebabs, mass immigration, dumbing down of education, “americanization”, feminisation, modern architecture… Lack of unity among the people. We’re too divided on everything… Marine, ne nous trahis pas.

Despite stretch of no homicides, more people shot in Chicago this year than last – Chicago Tribune

Capture

By Elvia Malagon

Despite a six-day stretch without a homicide in Chicago, the number of people shot in the city is still higher than it was a year ago, according to data compiled by the Tribune.

At least 23 people were shot in the city over the weekend, bringing the total this year to 550, 25 more than last year at this time, according to Tribune data.  Last year saw the most gun violence in the city in two decades.

There has been a shooting in Chicago every day for more than two years.  The last day the city went without a shooting was Feb. 28, 2015, the data show.

The number of homicides had been running ahead of last year until last week, when none were recorded between Feb. 26 and this past Saturday, when Antoine Watkins, 22, was found shot to death in the West Side’s South Austin neighborhood, according to police.

Watkins’ death came six days after James Morris, 23, was killed about 11 a.m. Feb. 26 while sitting in a vehicle in Lawndale on the West Side, police said.

There have been at least 104 homicides in the city this year, a slight decrease from the 109 logged this time last year.

The decrease is a change from last week when homicides were outpacing last year after the city experienced its deadliest day so far this year.

Among those wounded this weekend were two men in their 50s who were shot during a robbery in Englewood on Sunday morning.

On Saturday, a 14-year-old boy was shot in the arm, police said. The shooter was in a vehicle and opened fire in the 1500 block of East 70th Street in the Grand Crossing neighborhood. 

Early Saturday, there were two double shootings within a three-hour period.
