NEW YORK TO BECOME SANCTUARY CITY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS - TheCypressTimes (http://www.thecypresstimes.com/article/News/National_News/NEW_YORK_TO_BECOME_SANCTUARY_CITY_FOR_ILLEGAL_ALIE NS/51984 - broken link)

The New York City Council is close to passing a city ordinance that will drastically hamper the activities of the Homeland Security Department's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), according to federal law enforcement officers and a non-profit public interest group's latest report..

The ordinance will limit ICE agents in their role of identifying and removing illegal aliens from the city's correctional system. If and when the ordinance is passed, New York will join a small list of large cities, including San Francisco, Washington, DC, Chicago, and San Jose, that deliberately obstruct ICE's operations.

Good. They should increase the pressure on those middle class loser families to leave. New York City is a ruling class city; we need cheap exploitable labor. These new announcements will facilitate even cheaper labor. We don't need some middle class loser families demanding fair salaries and benefits. We are the ruling class and want cheap labor to do work for the minimum possible.

If we can cloak these desires in the facade of fairness for immigrants even better. We get the benefits of exploiting workers and the high moral ground. While we are looking good fighting for the rights of the exploited the middle class losers reach for the despicable world of overt racism against the immigrants. We ruling class come out smelling like roses and fatten up our wallets. With the media 100% behind us ruling class you middle class losers will be shipped off to loserville Carolina or where ever losers go when they can't make it in New York anymore.

And this is what is wrong with the USA. We need to hammer down on illegal immigration.

Agreed, but that is another topic. I am just wondering what they need sanctuary from.

Honestly, is this going to make any difference. I don't recall any deportations when I lived in New York.

New York City as a Sanctuary City is the thread topic. Its a subtopic of Illegal Immgration which is a much broader topic that is characterized by an array of such subtopics.

And like I asked, sanctuary from what? Makes it sound as is this is the Antebellum and slaves are trying to gain their freedom by stepping foot on free soil. The truth of the matter is we have decriminalized immigration.
