The NYPD sergeant’s union is destroying Mayor Bill De Blasio along with James O’Neill, the police commissioner. These two needed to be put in their place!
With the exception of 170 very serious crimes, the city of New York is not turning over the illegal immigrants who have been arrested, as it has been requested to do. The city is requiring a warrant from a judge to hand the illegals over. This has frustrated the NYPD’s union.
“We can’t ignore people who commit crimes and facilitate an atmosphere of harboring them because we want to get votes in an election year. It’s just terrible to do that,” Ed Mullins stated. “If you’re arrested, you commit a misdemeanor, you commit felonies — why are we going to tolerate this?” via NY Daily News.
Mullins is the president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, and, like many Americans, he agrees with President Trump’s decision to enforce our immigration laws.
The Department of Homeland Security released a huge list of deportation policies that requires any illegal immigrant who is charged with a crime to be the priority target for removal.
This also covers the people who are in this country illegally and are receiving government assistance or using false social security numbers so they can find jobs in this country. President Trump will not be putting up with the illegals who are taking advantage of this country and its people.
As New York’s mayor, Bill De Blasio seems to think he is above the law and the president. He has turned New York City into a sanctuary city to protect the illegals who broke the law, encouraging them to come into the U.S. to live and work.
Commissioner O’Neill is helping De Blasio. O’Neill wrote and issued a memo saying the officers of the New York Police Department would not be taking part in Trump’s directive, calling for them to not assist in the arrests of the undocumented criminal aliens.
“It is critical that everyone who comes into contact with the NYPD, regardless of their immigration status, be able to identify themselves or seek assistance without hesitation, anxiety, or fear,” O’Neill stated in the memo.
But Mullins and other high-ranking officers do not want to follow the commissioner’s command. The NYPD wants to work with ICE to make this country safer. Our police officers and elected officials have a moral obligation to this country, not to the people who ignore our laws to be here. The American people do not get to choose which laws we follow and which we ignore. No one should.
De Blasio and O’Neill need to realize that by protecting the illegals in this country, they are saying these criminals are more important than the safety and security of the Americans who elected them to their positions. This is not only heinous but wrong, and the NYPD won’t stand for it any longer!
