No sanc­tu­ary for il­le­gal im­mi­grants

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD - J. Shawn Al­carese, Tow­son

Declar­ing that the elec­tion of Pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump cre­ates “a very scary en­vi­ron­ment for new Americans,” Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawl­ingsBlake reaf­firmed Baltimore City as a sanc­tu­ary city for il­le­gal im­mi­grants (“Mayor: Baltimore is a ’wel­com­ing city’ for im­mi­grants and refugees,” Nov. 18). But il­le­gal im­mi­grants aren’t Americans, and Ms. Rawl­ings-Blake knows that. Nor would a scary en­vi­ron­ment ex­ist if the im­mi­grants were le­gal, as they would not be break­ing the law by be­ing in this coun­try. Lastly, Ms. Rawl­ings-Blake claims the im­mi­gra­tion laws are bro­ken and “ev­ery­one ... rec­og­nizes that.” Fed­eral im­mi­gra­tion laws aren’t bro­ken, they are be­ing will­fully dis­re­garded and dis­obeyed by our cur­rent pres­i­dent, his ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cials, and nu­mer­ous lo­cal of­fi­cials around the coun­try in the hope that the mil­lions of il­le­gals pour­ing into this coun­try will be­come the next Demo­cratic Party vot­ing block.
