Megyn Kelly Destroys Obama on the Sanctuary City Murder

I don't usually say that, but she destroys him. She turns the blue glare of her Aryan fury towards his -- yes, his -- personal decision to keep sanctuary cities going. There's a brief video is about halfway down the page; we really need the full video, but I can't find it on Fox.

Kelly's reportorial catch is that the head of ice -- a Ms. Zaldana -- was asked, just four months ago, if she would like Congressional help in telling citiies that their "detainers" -- an order to keep an individual while ICE comes get them, I guess -- were not voluntary things they could honor or disregard at their whim. This is what that the San Francisco sheriff was talking about when Tapper interviewed him -- claiming a "detainer" is "not a legal order" like a warrant and so can be disregarded at will.

Ms. Zaldana was asked, four months ago, if Congress should make it clear that detainers were not disregardable at will by sanctuary cities.

Her answer was:

"Thank you. Amen. Yes."

But then, the very next day, not twenty four hours later, after obviously being read the riot act by a higher-up (either Jeh Johnson, or Obama himself) she reversed herself completely, and wrote a letter to Congress praying that they not misunderstand her, that she does not want any clarification at all on detainers, that it would upset the delicate balance of the police/illegal ecosystem or whatever.

Thank you. Amen, yes. Crack down on the sanctuary cities is what she said, but the very next day, Friday March 20, a complete reversal after the ACLU, immigrants rights groups and others pressured the White House and presto, the head of ICE makes a shocking about face. This time in writing, though, saying, quote, '[a]ny effort at federal legislation now to mandate state and local law enforcement's compliance with ICE detainers will, in our view, be a highly counterproductive step and lead to more resistance and less cooperation in overall efforts to promote public safety." What happened to thank you, amen yes a day earlier? And now, after clear evidence that it is not interested in a sanctuary city crackdown, this administration tells reporters it can't comment on whether the President backs the sheriff or the policies in this case?

So Obama is directly responsible for this woman's murder.

You know how Obama always claims that if we can save one life by any gun control measure? Well, resolving that detainer orders are not voluntary would save many lives.

And yet he wants more people murdered. Odd!

Kelly then blasted Josh Earnest for refusing to answer a question about it, referring the matter to the Justice Department (which would of course refuse comment), and the media for being "too lazy" to do their jobs:

He allowed this to happen. They -- the administration knew the person he placed in charge of ICE was telling Congress, 'yes, help us, get these cities into compliance' and someone took her behind the wood shed and said you're reversing that explicitly and now they don't want to answer for it because they know the press will be too lazy to hold them to account. It is lawlessness.

Honestly, it was the best six minutes of TV I've seen in a long time.

Rick Perry: Cut Off Federal Dollars (For Policing) to Sanctuary Cities. Rick Perry's on the board.

Now obviously one can say cut off all federal aid and sure, that sounds not so bad too. But this is a pretty good proposal, as there's obviously a direct link between the funds to be withheld and the behavior to be corrected.

"In Texas, we have a long history of welcoming immigrants from all over the world, immigrants who have helped make our economy the strongest in the country. It’s not fair that some people try to jump the immigration line by coming across our border illegally. One of the core responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the border. As the recent tragedy in San Francisco has shown us, it’s important for the federal government and local governments to be able to cooperate to apprehend illegal immigrants with criminal histories. San Francisco--and many other cities in America run by left-wing governments--have become 'sanctuary cities' that choose to openly defy U.S. immigration law and prevent cooperation with federal authorities. Perversely, the federal government subsidizes this behavior by sending Justice Department funds to cities that intentionally harbor illegal immigrants in their jails. This has to end."

"Today, I am proposing to pull funding for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program--or SCAAP--rom sanctuary cities. States with sanctuary cities will lose a proportionate amount of their SCAAP funding as well. SCAAP funding will also be restricted to jurisdictions that actively participate in immigration law enforcement programs. Cities and counties with sanctuary policies in place will also be prohibited from applying for federal law enforcement or Department of Homeland Security grants. Federal taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to subsidize the irresponsible behavior of these governments. Furthermore, the Justice Department should allow federal immigration officials, either through the executive branch or Congressional action, to have access to prisons and holding facilities in sanctuary cities and counties, so as to verify the immigration status of people in those facilities."
