There are hundreds of sanctuary cities (or counties) in America (340 as of 2015), and they shelter literally millions of illegal immigrants in defiance of federal law.
Why? God knows. Some of those running sanctuary cities claim that they only provide a sanctuary if illegals don’t commit any addition crimes on top of their illegal immigration status. But look at NYC, and you’ll see just how insane they really are. Mayor Bill deBlasio confirmed that he wouldn’t even deport illegals convicted of drunk driving.
And they commit a hell of a lot of crimes. According to Heather MacDonald “Two-thirds of all outstanding felony warrants in the city of Los Angeles involved illegal aliens — as well as 95% of outstanding murder warrants.”
Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies found that in a nine-month timeframe in 2014, sanctuary cities shielded 9,265 illegals from deportation, 62 percent of which “had significant prior criminal histories” and 2,320 of them were subsequently rearrested for new crimes, according to Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review.
And here’s the latest sanctuary story trainwreck. As KXAN reported:
The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force arrested Juan Lopez, 46, Thursday night. The victim told police she knew Lopez for a year and he allowed her to borrow his car while he was out of town if she could drop him off an an unknown location on Jan. 16.
With her young child in the backseat, the mother drove Lopez along Interstate 35 as he instructed her to take the Creedmoor exit. The mother said as she exited the interstate, Lopez pulled out a knife and pressed it against her stomach.
Lopez told her to drive to a cul de sac on the 12700 block of I-35. Once they parked, according to the affidavit, Lopez told the mother if she didn’t have sex with him he would kill her. The mother responded “No, my son is in the car,” to which Lopez responded “I don’t give a damn,” states the affidavit.
According to police, Lopez later proceeded to sexually assault the victim and then texted the mother an apology afterward for violating her.
Lopez is now in custody at the Travis County Jail charged with two first-degree felonies for aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault.
As for how they identified the man, Lopez was in possession of ID from the Mexican Federal Electoral Institute under a different name.
Oh – and this was hardly his first offense.
Investigators discovered Lopez was convicted of a homicide in Travis County from 1987. He was released and deported to Mexico in 2009, police do not know when he returned to the U.S.
Time to build that wall.
