Connecticut's 1st Congressional District Republican candidate Joseph Visconti Saturday called on the US Attorney's office to launch an investigation into Hartford and New Haven's Sanctuary City designations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

Speaking on the steps of the New Haven City Hall where Mayor John DeStefano fired 35 city employees Friday in a cost-cutting move, Visconti said, "Mayor DeStefano is refusing to protect the health, safety and welfare of this city's legal residents."

"I have spoken to the US Attorney's office for New Haven and Hartford and will ask them to begin an investigation under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. We believe an inquiry under this statute will result in indictments against the mayor of New Haven as well as many other groups and individuals."

Visconti said the devastating impacts of illegal immigration on American society are self-evident in New Haven. "Today, the equivalent of a platoon of New Haven city workers is enduring its first day of unemployment. These people lost their jobs, and now face an uncertain future because the mayor of this city decided it was more important to provide sanctuary for people who are here illegally, than to live up to his oath of office."

"The city of New Haven is tens of millions of dollars in debt due to the strain that illegal immigrants have placed on city services. Legal workers are losing their jobs, and the social services budget can not possibly keep up with the influx of new claims resulting from the Sanctuary City designation.

"And Hartford is next! This is criminal."

Visconti http://www.viscontiforcongress.org is challenging incumbent Democrat John Larson for the 1st Congressional District seat. Larson is the number-five ranking Democrat in the US House of Representatives. His websites do not list Immigration Reform as one of his priorities.

Indeed. They invaded us one city/state at a time, and one by one we will take them all back.
