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

Originally published at: ‘SICKENING’: New Memo Shows Chicago Police Instructed to ‘Not Cooperate’ with ICE Agents | Sean Hannity

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

“Instead of assisting DHS upon request, officers are instructed to wait for their supervisor to arrive, the memo said. Once the supervisor arrives, ‘if the request is to assist with an immigration arrest or detention, CPD personnel will leave the scene as directed by the CPD supervisor, according to the memo,” reports Fox News.

“CPD confirmed the memo came from an internal superior but would not say if the directive came from the mayor. The mayor’s office has not responded to requests for comment,” adds Fox.

“See what happens when that happens and a DHS agent is injured because of a lack of response by CPD. Sickening what’s happening here,” a ranking CPD source told Fox News.

Chicago’s progressive Mayor Lori Lightfoot confirmed this week that her city will not comply with any future immigration raids; blocking ICE agents from accessing the police department’s vast databases.

“Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart,” said Lightfoot at a press conference Wednesday.

“The Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE. That means that they will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We’ve also cut off access from ICE to any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” she added.

Lightfoot joins fellow Democrats in their latest attempt to block the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration across the country.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Speaker Pelosi Thursday; posting instructions online for illegal immigrants to use if confronted by federal agents in upcoming raids.

“Por favor comparte,” said Clinton; Spanish for “Please Share.”

AOC posted similar instructions earlier Thursday.

“ICE will launch raids across 10 major cities this SUNDAY. Check your neighbors & know your rights. Remember: no one can enter your home without a *judicial warrant.* Sometimes ICE will try to show other papers to get in your house. Judicial warrants are from a court,” posted AOC on social media.

“No matter who you are or what your status is, this is the United States of America – where ALL people have rights. Know yours. Prepare. Visit (link: http://WeHaveRights.US) WeHaveRights.US to learn how to handle this & other ICE encounters in multiple languages,” she added. “f people come knocking, you do NOT have to open your door unless there is a signed judicial warrant. Check the site above to learn how to handle your rights in 4 scenarios in 7 different languages.”

Once again a government official ignores the rule of law!

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
