Well it’s official. New Haven Connecticut is the mother of all sanctuary cities. With a vote of 25 to 1, the city approved ID cards for illegal aliens.
The Day.com had this to say about the debacle…
“New Haven, a city of about 125,000, already offers federal tax help to immigrants and prohibits police from asking about their immigration status.
“It was really a vote that reflected our values as a community here in New Haven, values of hard work, values of acceptance, and values that we get tough things done when we work together,” Mayor John DeStefano said Tuesday, a day after aldermen agreed to accept $250,000 from a private foundation to pay for cards that will serve as identification within city limits.”
From the same article, Steven Camarota had this to say about the pandering…
“Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington think tank that favors vigorous immigration enforcement, called the cards largely symbolic. He said most illegal immigrants who want bank accounts or need city services have probably already found ways to get them.
“It seems like the main thing that’s going on here is really just a statement by the city that it wishes to subvert U.S. immigration law with a largely meaningless gesture for illegals,” he said.”
It’s clear New Haven values totally disregard the rule of law and the interests of American citizen residents.
Fittingly, two days after the criminal act was approved by New Haven, ICE stopped by and reminded the city it is still in America where laws, at least for the time being, still must be obeyed.
“NEW HAVEN – Federal agents arrested 29 illegal immigrants in a raid today, two days after the city approved a program to make municipal identification cards available to them, federal officials said.
Paula Grenier, a spokeswoman for the Boston office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, confirmed that 29 immigrants who had already been ordered by judges to leave the country were arrested in a routine fugitive operation in New Haven.
She said that those arrested were in ICE custody and would be sent back to their home countries.”
In closing, ALIPAC has the right idea with regard to New Haven’s sanctuary city status. They are encouraging all illegal aliens to go to New Haven. They even have a flier for it.
You can download the original flier here so you too can encourage illegal aliens to inhabit New Haven.
Let’s contain this cancer to New Haven, Connecticut. Join NumbersUSA today to fight the treasonous illegal alien amnesty (S.1348) legislation being considered in the Senate. We do have much bigger fish to fry.
