Let’s just start with a statement of fact: sanctuary city policies threaten the safety of American citizens. In June, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a list of criminal illegal aliens that were allowed back into their sanctuary communities by local officials. One such criminal is Rosalio Ramos-Romas, a Hondurian citizen who was deported four times before authorities arrested him in Washington State in October 2017.
Last Tuesday, Edwin Castro Sangalang, a 45-year-old living in Lake Elsinore, California, was arrested by Riverside County sheriff’s deputies and charged on approximately 200 counts of sexual assault for having a four-year sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl, from the time she was just 9.
In a recent opinion editorial published in the San Diego Union-Tribune, former federal prosecutor, Peter Nunez, provides excellent commentary on how the United States is encouraging more illegal immigration.
