Chicago Police Officers instructed to ignore rule of law: Do not cooperate with ICE

SEE: ‘SICKENING’: New Memo Shows Chicago Police Instructed to ‘Not Cooperate’ with ICE Agents

”A recently released memo shows members of the Chicago Police Department were instructed to “not cooperate” with ICE agents in “situations involving immigration arrests.”

But as I posted elsewhere, let us read Judge Harry D. Leinenweber’s recent WRITTEN OPINION which touches upon this very issue: 8 U.S. Code § 1373 - Communication between government agencies and the Immigration and Naturalization Service

“The constitutionality of Section 1373 has been challenged before. The Second Circuit in City of New York v. United States, 179 F.3d 29 (2d Cir. 1999), addressed a facial challenge to Section 1373 in similar circumstances. By executive order, New York City prohibited its employees from voluntarily providing federal immigration authorities with information concerning the immigration status of any alien. Id. at 31-32. The city sued the United States, challenging the constitutionality of Section 1373 under the Tenth Amendment.

Id. at 32.

_The Second Circuit found that Section 1373 did not compel state or local governments to enact or administer any federal regulatory program or conscript local employees into its service, and therefore did not run afoul of the rules gleaned from the Supreme Court’s Printz and New York decisions. City of New York, 179 F.3d at 35. Rather, the court held that Section 1373 prohibits local governmental entities and officials only from directly restricting the voluntary exchange of immigration information with the INS. Ibid. The Court found that the Tenth Amendment, normally a shield from federal power, could not be turned into “a sword allowing states and localities to engage in passive resistance that frustrates federal programs.”
.

So, local police cannot be restricted in the voluntary exchange of immigration information with the INS. Ibid. The Court found that the Tenth Amendment, normally a shield from federal power, could not be turned into “a sword allowing states and localities to engage in passive resistance that frustrates federal programs.

Whoever issued the command to forbid police officers from voluntarily cooperating with ICE Agents needs to be identified and prosecuted.

Elizabeth Warren wants elderly American citizens, who paid into Medicare all their lives, to surrender their healthcare to the millions of foreigners who have invaded America’s borders.

Well that makes it much easier for MS 13 type illegals to kill, rape, and steal.

You should be more worried about white supremacists. The FBI says they are a far greater threat.

Not a very creative deflection!

:roll_eyes:

I’m worried about public officers who took an oath to abide by the rule of law, using their office of public trust the engage in sedition.

Illegal immigration is now costing American citizens over $18 billion a year in healthcare costs alone, far more than the measly $5.7 billion asked for to build a wall! LINK

Good!

Local police shouldn’t be acting as immigration officers.

Where in the US Constitution does it say local police must act as immigration police?

Your deflection is not very creative. What we are talking about are subversive public officers instructing police officers to not voluntarily cooperate with ICE Agents. In addition to the Court opinion I posted see:

8 U.S. Code § 1373 - Communication between government agencies and the Immigration and Naturalization Service

(a) In general

Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.

(b) Additional authority of government entitiesNotwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no person or agency may prohibit, or in any way restrict, a Federal, State, or local government entity from doing any of the following with respect to information regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual:

I never took Republican as strong Federalist who cares about State rights.

You forgot to be specific. But hey, that’s your game, isn’t it?

Elizabeth Warren’s Government sponsored capitalism is about fattening the fortunes of those holding political power with tax revenue, while regulating a free market, free enterprise system into submission, and then into extinction.

That’s not a very clever deflection.

What we are talking about is city officials violating the law by forbidding police officers to voluntarily cooperate with ICE.

The Court was crystal clear in pointing out Section 1373 prohibits local governmental entities and officials from directly restricting the voluntary exchange of immigration information with the INS.

They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. The Democrat Party Leadership is infested with communists and socialists who delude, lure and addict our nations needy with free government cheese.

Then where is it in the US Constitution that local police authorities must force their officers to what you claim they aren’t doing?

I can be specific. I can’t guarantee that you’ll process it though.

8 U.S. Code § 1373 prohibits local governments from preventing LEOs from contacting ICE on their own time.

The law Chicago has passed prohibits Chcago LEOs from actively getting involved with ICE operations, while on the clock.

It’s not democrats who are destroying the country, stupid. It’s the Democrat Party Leadership that is destroying the Country, by trying to overturn an election using impeachment.

Illegals don’t even have a right to be here so every crime is one that should have been prevented.

Over 85% of the violent crime in the US is attributable to criminal gangs.

ICE is a product of government overreach after 9/11; who cares.

FACTS are irrelevant in these types of conversations!

JWK

It’s not a “Deep State”. It’s a subversive “Shadow Government” which began to entrench itself during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Its mission being, to advance GLOBALIST and socialist policies, and obstruct attempts to roll back such policies.

The Democrat Politicians should just be honest. They really could care less about the safety of Police officers. MS-13 gang threatened to kill cops, and yet Democrat Politicians want to provide sanctuary cities for them. Democrat Politicians allow felons to vote in prison. So the people that commit heinous crimes get to help vote in people the their same type of morals.

It would be relevant if it were actually a “fact”.

See: Gangs Blamed for 80 Percent of U.S. Crimes

“Criminal gangs commit as much as 80 percent of the crime in many communities, according to law enforcement officials throughout the nation,” the report notes as part of its key findings. “Typical gang-related crimes include alien smuggling, armed robbery, assault, auto theft, drug trafficking, extortion, fraud, home invasions, identity theft, murder and weapons trafficking.”

The percentage has gone up since 2009 when the article was written and our federal government refused to stop mass illegal immigration.

There is no surer way to weaken, subdue, demoralize and then conquer a prosperous and freedom loving people than by allowing and encouraging the poverty stricken, poorly educated, low-skilled, criminal and diseased populations of other countries to invade that country, and make the country’s existing citizens tax-slaves to support the economic needs of such invaders.*
