    The Democrat mayor in Baltimore has ordered the Police Dept to not enforce Immigration laws nor to start any Immigration Investigations. Baltimore was declared a "Sanctuary City" by their Democrat Gov. Martin O'Malley, when he was Mayor of Baltimore.

    Now This!


    Mayor Bars Police From Immigration Enforcement


    BALTIMORE (WJZ)– First, federal agents announce they would begin checking the immigration status of people arrested in Baltimore. Now, the city’s mayor has ordered police not to do the Feds’ work for them.

    Alex DeMetrick reports, the order is meant to keep communication open between immigrants and police.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the lead federal agency dealing with illegal immigrants. With an executive order by the mayor, Baltimore police are not to take on that enforcement job.

    “Police are working to make our city safe. We are not working as immigration agents,” Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.



    Here’s why:

    “We felt a wave of fear begin to envelope the community,” Elizabeth Alex of Casa de Maryland said.

    With the announcement that people taken to jail in Baltimore will have their immigration status checked by ICE agents.

    In Baltimore’s growing Hispanic community, that’s made dealing with police– even a call for help– less certain.

    “With this announcement today, we’re hopeful communities will once again regain that trust of the police department, and continue to call them for help,” Alex said.



    Under the mayor’s order: No discrimination by police or city agencies against any city resident. The mayor also orders no city funds be spent investigating civil violations of immigration law.

    And questions about immigration status may not be made to start a civil immigration investigation.

    The mayor’s order does not stop police from cooperating with federal agents in cases involving undocumented immigrants suspected of criminal activity.

    “And the city’s not going to stand in the way of that enforcement,” Rawlings-Blake said.

    But it won’t be checking visas for ICE, just to be checking.

    The mayor’s executive order is also making a request of ICE asking them to identify themselves as ICE agents and not simply as police.

    Vote in 2012! Elect a president who will enforce immigration laws and cut off Federal funds to sanctuary cities/states. That nonsense will end in a hurry.

    And the penalties for ALL employers to include homeowners using undocumented workers for yard work, etc., need to be severe. Minimum $1000.00 fine per undocumented worker per day, no mitigation allowed...

    How does a homeowner ensure that the person mowing their yard and spreading mulch in their yard comply with immigration requirements one may ask? Simple, make it mandatory that all employers sign up with E-Verify.

    But sadly, neither Republicans nor Democrats will ever support such a measure for the multitude of reasons stated on this site repeatedly over the years...

    Calvin,

    Dont I know it, I was a LEO in Baltimore County for 24 years. The Mayor and Governor really tie the hands of the police with the crap they come up with. ICE is no better, unless you have a train car full of Illegals, they tell ya to let them go, they do not have time to process them for deportation.

    Didn't Pelosi's daddy get rich as the mayor of Baltimore, with the help of the mob?

    bluedevil you got it right, Delasandro was the pin heads name. I am glad I moved out of that state years ago.

    Curt, you are right, Baltimore is a joke!
