I hope my area takes a hint from OKC and PHX!

We don't have any sanctuary cities near me, but they are tolerated.

So much for "hiding in the shadows"!

Isn't it strange that we hear that phrase along with "we don't know where to find them TO deport them", when they are right in ours faces all the time.

Denver or any city in Colorado is not a Sanctuary city in 2006 Colorado passed
Sanctuary cities banned in Colorado!

Update: Wiens measure becomes law, bans sanctuary cities

May 2, 2006
Kelley Harp, Senate Republican Communications

DENVER - Senate Bill 90, by state Sen. Tom Wiens, R-Castle Rock, was signed into law Monday by Colorado Gov. Bill Owens. The measure prevents cities and local governments from implementing sanctuary policies allowing illegal aliens to live within their borders without any fear of punishment.

The new law accomplishes this by prohibiting the administration of grants by the Department of Local Affairs to any local government that declares itself a sanctuary

actually that is an incorrect interpretation of Co SB 90.

The latest on it I've seen.Hickenlooper defends Denver against

Sanctuary city politicians likely think SB 1070 will force their hands - Washington Times

Denver has and will continue to fully cooperate with and refer cases to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and has always complied with state and federal immigration law

Living under an illegal immigrant for eleven and a half years, this immigrant from Hong Kong, has come to this country in San Francisco and has caused nothing but racial trouble. She evidently has a total distaste for anyone who is not member of Chinese community, even to the point of only seeing one banking clerk st my bank (who she also has account with) as I was told on ths sly that she will not do business with any non-Chinese employees.

As this person has had serious issues with me (as I am a LEGAL immigrant from Switzerland) and also though have mostly northern European descent, I also have one ancestral Japanese connection as well, I may have issue with the current direction both economically and politically, but I have absolutely NO issues against general public whatsoever!

This person living above me has been in harassment mode for over 11 years trying to drive me out as to get some of her Chinese friends to move in my room. She only 'befriended' me once in 2007 with her limited English which seemed to be actually pretty advanced, as only to tell me that the house we both are living in is for 'Chinese only' that I really ought to move out and find somewhere else to live! (Sorry, but to me that is classic racialism)!

This has gotten me opposed to this immigration sanctuary issue as it is allowing some people to enter this country and NOT assimilate here but rather who are INVADING this country as to attempt to purchase up vast amounts of real property and in effect 'buy' cities in this country and turn them over as colonies to Beijing! I have unfortunately experienced many other instances of hostile 'immigrants' (illegals) predominantly from Chinese community (though indeed I also have met some really nice people as well, to be fair).

It is this 'silent civil war' and economic invasion by many groups of this one community as many people who obviously have some serious mental issues and who are criminal or indeed members of the Chinese Triad (or indeed other organised crime syndicates) that who to me are ruining this potentially progressive policy of 'open immigration' for everyone else!

Please remember Fidel Castro and the Muriel Boatlift of the mid 1970's when at that time LGBT people who were criminalised in Cuba, along with real criminals and serious mental patients, who were dumped into this country via Florida.

Today, this 'Landbridge between San Francisco and Guangzhou is another version of that activity during the mid 70's from Cuba -- but this time the worst element from China! The Wo Hop To, Shi Toe, and other criminal elements have a stronghold in San Francisco in particular and this sanctuary status is only allowing this and other like organisations to fester ever more powerfully! This is why as a Social democrat (or Democratic Socialist) I am more of a 'T-Bagger' only when it comes to this sanctuary city nonsense!

One last comment; only diplomats and consular people have what is legally called 'diplomatic immunity' in this country, -- not undocumented immigrants! I am immigrant myself, as stated above. I still am subject to all laws and rules of society here -- so to are all legal and illegal immigrants as well! NO exceptions!
