Re: Allow Victims to SUE Sanctuary Cities

No, people cannot sue local government for federal government malfeasance. 

 

It is very appropriate to sue the feds for failure to do their jobs correctly, though. 

 

 

 

I thought conservatives wanted limited government? Don’t forget the 1997 Supreme Court case Printz v. United States, where where federal government tried to force states to engage in certain gun control practices.

 

Justice Scalia wrote for the court:

 

 “The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. Such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.”

Cities cannot enforce federal law. So the question should be can victims sue the federal government for not enforcing federal law? What law?

 

It is a "federal" crime to employ a foreigner that does not have a "federal" work permit. The feds do not enforce that law. That is the only reason we have our illegal immigrant problem.

 

If the Republicans demanded enforcement of that law there would be no illegal immigrants in North Carolina. If they cannot work in that state, they don't go there. The same can be said for all of our states.

This is appalling to me...

 

Now we have law enforcement vs law enforcement? How can this happen in the United States of America?

 

Next, our Armed Forces vs law enforcement vs us? This madness needs to be stopped and the cause of it needs to be gone!

Senate Republicans Introduce Bill to Allow Victims to SUE Sanctuary Cities

 

Senators Thom Tillis, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Grassley and others introduced new legislation Tuesday that would allow the victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants to sue their local governments due to their controversial ‘Sanctuary City’ guidelines.

 

“Earlier this month, the Mecklenburg County (NC) Sheriff’s Office refused to notify ICE and comply with a lawful detainer request when it released a dangerous illegal immigrant from county jail who was charged with multiple domestic violence charges for strangling a woman and threatening to kill her. This was only one of more than 20 troubling instances this year of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office releasing potentially dangerous individuals after refusing to comply with detainer requests. The reckless sanctuary policy prompted criticism from the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina,” reports the Daily Caller.

 

“It’s disturbing to see sheriffs across North Carolina establish sanctuary jurisdictions, releasing dangerous individuals back into communities while refusing to notify federal immigration officials,” said a statement from Tillis’ office. “If politicians want to prioritize reckless sanctuary policies over public safety, they should also be willing to provide just compensation for the victims.”

 

“A good piece of legislation that is long overdue,” added Senator Lindsey Graham. “There must be consequences for governments and entities that gamble with public safety, refuse to work with federal officials, and refuse to deal with felons here illegally. This legislation empowers individuals who are the victims of these entities and governments’ poor decisions.”

 

Liberal leaders across the USA have embraced ‘Sanctuary City’ policies following President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. The entire state of California declared themselves a ‘Sanctuary’ in recent months; encouraging migrants to illegally enter the country.
