No, this is not an episode of the Twilight Zone, nor an escaped mental patient ranting on camera before being taken away in a straight jacket. This is the sitting mayor of America’s 2nd largest city, and a predicted Democrat Presidential candidate for 2016.
But that doesn’t make it any less crazy.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa yesterday urged this much at a National Press Club appearance by supporters of illegal alien amnesty:
“It is time to put an end to the practice of deporting non-serious criminals,” said Villaraigosa. “Our neighborhoods will be safer and our families will be more secure.
Uh, ok. So you may now be asking yourself: isn’t crossing the border itself a pretty serious crime? And you would be right. And re-crossing the border, which the average illegal alien has done 2 times – is a Federal felony punishable by up to 5 years in jail. But to Villaraigosa, these are not “serious” crimes.
What are other examples of “non-serious crimes”, according to the good mayor and his like-minded amnesty advocates? Try identity theft, Social Security fraud, tax fraud, tax evasion, “up to three” DUIs, car theft (as the Mayor of Boston asserted), shoplifting, ‘simple’ assault, “up to 3″ misdeameanors of any kind…and on and on. NONE of these crimes – again, by people who broke the law to even be here, are considered “serious” enough to deport an illegal alien by amnesty pimps.
In fact in one stunning case, the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals ruled that KIDNAPPING was not “serious enough” to warrant deportation in the case of one illegal alien!
But we are supposed to believe that keeping these “non-serious criminal” illegal aliens will keep us “safer”? Is this really the insanity that the GOP establishment and useful idiots like Sen. Marco Rubio are going to sign on to?
Not if we stop them.
Here is America’s dumbest mayor’s full comments on video…
If YOU stand Arizona and against illegal immigration and want to see the border secured, the rule of law upheld and amnesty for illegals stopped, then put your name where your heart is, and join the 160,000 who have signed the petition…
