Our Take: A Border Wall Would End the Crisis. Democrats Don’t Care.

Not too long ago, Democrats and the Fake News Industrial Complex were describing the border crisis as “manufactured.” But as it stands now, the only aspect of this situation that is manufactured is the Democrats’ fake outrage over what has been happening on America’s southern border not for years, but for decades.

And their faux anger at the plight of illegal aliens goes far beyond Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s obviously fake photoshoot at some chain-link fence in an undisclosed location. The Democrats’ exploitation of photos of a dead immigrant child is insincerity at its worst, representing the crisis as some situation that is only affecting innocent men, women, and children.

The true purpose of this appeal to pathos is twofold: Obscure the fact that Democrats only want more immigrants for their votes, not because they actually care about their desperate situations; and to completely ignore the fact that many illegal aliens do, as President Trump said, bring with them drugs, crime, and other horrible forms of abuse that lead to tragic outcomes for law-abiding American citizens.

But both ends of the crisis – the suffering of non-violent illegal aliens, and the acts of violence against Americans by violent migrants – could be stopped instantly with one simple solution: Building the Wall and securing the border.

The fact that Democrats refuse to accept the one solution to this problem is all the proof you need that they truly don’t care at all. For them it’s all about power, raw naked power.

Fox News: ICE releases list of accused murderers, rapists protected under state’s sanctuary law

By Dan Springer

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in the Pacific Northwest are taking the unusual step of criticizing Washington state’s new sanctuary state law and giving detailed examples of the danger they believe it presents to the public.

The office recently issued a press release which lists seven cases in which ICE requested detainers on criminal illegal aliens being held in local jails and those requests were ignored, many with tragic consequences.

According to ICE, Rosalio Ramos-Ramos was arrested last January for murder and dismembering his victim. It happened just months after Ramos was released from a Washington jail despite ICE’s request for an immigration detainer and notification of his pending release, neither of which were honored.

ICE also cites the case of Mexican national Martin Gallo-Gallardo, who was in a Clackamas County Oregon jail. The statement said jail officials ignored ICE’s request for an immigration detainer and notification of release. Gallardo was released and within months was re-arrested, this time for allegedly murdering his wife.

The most recent case involves Francisco Carranza-Ramirez, who was also in the U.S. illegally. He was convicted of raping a wheelchair-bound Seattle woman twice. He was sentenced to time served and released, under the judge’s order that he self-deport back to Mexico. King County Sheriff’s officials say he eventually did return to Mexico, but not before assaulting his victim a third time.

Meantime, Washington state just passed what some immigration advocates are calling the strongest sanctuary state law in the country. It forbids local jails and state prisons from honoring ICE immigration detainers and even prevents corrections officials from even letting ICE know about the pending release of a criminal illegal immigrant. The law also instructs the attorney general to draft new rules restricting ICE agents from making immigration arrests at courthouses and hospitals.

In signing the law, Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee reportedly said, “We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up hard-working immigrant and refugee families.”

Now, ICE’s Deputy Director of the Seattle Field Office, Bryan Wilcox, says the law is putting lives in jeopardy.

“I think we’ve sort of hit a critical mass and this statute that the state passed is one step too far,” said Wilcox in an interview with Fox News.
