Sen. Vitter Warns New Orleans Against New Sanctuary City Policy

by CAROLINE MAY  |  published on March 4, 2016

The new policies the city of New Orleans has implemented that prevent law enforcement officers from sharing the immigration status of individuals they arrest with federal immigration officials has created yet another sanctuary city, and local leaders should reconsider the guidelines, according to Sen. David Vitter (R-LA).

In a letter Thursday to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman, Vitter called on the officials to rescind the new regulations, highlighting the public safety concerns of harboring illegal immigrant criminals.

“This ridiculous policy prohibiting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers from doing their job to stop the illegal immigration epidemic is an insult to residents of New Orleans,” Vitter wrote. “If you do not think creating a sanctuary city will attract more illegal immigrants – some who could be dangerous criminals – you are incredibly naive.”

Sanctuary cities have been under fire in recent months following high-profile crimes committed at the hands of criminal aliens released due to sanctuary city policies. In his missive Thursday, Vitter warned of the dangers of sanctuary cities by pointing to some recent illegal immigrant crimes — including the murder of Kathryn Steinle.

    another democrapo stronghold…just think billions in Real American taxpayer’s money went into rebuilding a city that will have recurring problems without paying attention to rebuilding the “barrier reef” to stop storm surge…of course the commies do not care about prevention, only forced repair with other footing the bill while the aholes take credit for “the love”…

    If New Orleans persists in its recent liberal policies, its reputation as a tourist destination is likely to be damaged. I, for one, have no desire to visit such a lawless and immoral city, even though I frequently vacation in the Southeast.

    “Treason is a highest capital crime!”
    Not where there’s NO LAW ENFORCEMENT.
    FEMA job? Delay, delay. Drag your feet. Give only the barest aid. Make it impossible for families of natural disaster to recover their home. Sooner or later they’ll give up and go away.
    Then the Feds can scarf it up and continue THEIR demographic plan, being sure to NOT get any overspill where THEY live.
    Natural disasters are GREAT! They save YEARS of otherwise waiting to let the LAND BARRONs have their way.
    Screw the American Family! Screw native American cultures! Plough it ALL under. Keep the cash flowing. “Entrepreneurs” only have a limited time to drain the lifeblood and make their fortune.
    One man’s American Dream is another’s nightmare at the hands of the ELITE POLITICAL CLASS.

    When are we going to start enforcing the law, beginning with the Constitution and especially 2nd oath allegiance required by everyone in government… SAME AS THE MILITARY WHO LAY THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE??? DUI carries jail time and destroys families, way beyond the offender! Progressives steal from taxpayers to enrich and protect alien locust invaders who overwhelm and destroy the US economy and heritage with impunity! TREASON is a highest capital crime!

    January BLS employment – Eligible 252,397,000population @ 1997/2008 12 year averaged workforce is 167,846,000. BLS 150,544,000 workers @ 34.6 weekly hours, @ 40 hours is 130,221,000 full-time JOBS! Unemployed jobless is 37,625,000 (22.42%), not 7,791,000 (4.92%) fraudulently reported!

    BLS 7,791,000 on UC-comp, 5,793,000 wanting jobs, and 20,323,000 not enough jobs for full-time work and wages is 33,907,000 (20.20%) acknowledged BLS joblessness. The 3,718,000 (2.2%) unexplained unreconciled difference is insignificant!

    BLS fulltime average wage with employer paid taxes & fringes (30%) totals ($68,655). That @ 37,625,000 is $2.58 trillion lost annually gross and $2.45 trillion with 5% unemployed!

    We have a 40 to 50 million locust alien army workforce… throwing citizens out of work into welfare! 11 to 20+ million aliens are collecting welfare and infrastructure while working in criminal tax/fringe/regulation evading employment. Their 2012 $402 billion cost @ 11 million “illegals” averaged $36,545! Adding same for displaced citizens totals $73,090 welfare. Lost tax/fringe revenue @ 25% employee, 30% employer @$52,811full-time adds $29,046, reaching $102,136 each.

    20 million illegals ($2 trillion) plus 20 million invited ($730 billion) is $2.7 trillion cost to throw citizens out of work… PLUS citizen $2.6 trillion jobless loss wealth puts the upper limit alien invasion cost at $4.3 trillion! Prosecute lawlessness within government and STOP IT!!
