Mayor de Blasio Signs Bills To Limit Deportation of Illegals
President Obama has threatened to use his Executive powers to over haul the immigration process by the end of November. It would seem that other Progressives aren’t going to wait that long.
The Queen’s Chronicle reports that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed two bills on Friday curbing the deportation of Illegals from the city:
“Mayor de Blasio signed two bills into law on Friday that mandate the city to reject most requests from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain undocumented immigrants for deportation, except in limited circumstances.
Intro. 486-A, prohibits the New York Police Department and the city Department of Correction to honor detainer requests, unless there’s a judicial warrant. Other exceptions include if the immigrant is on the U.S. terrorist watch list, has been convicted of a violent crime or committed a serious crime in the past five years.
The other bill, Intro. 487-A, will cause ICE’s office on Rikers Island and other city facilities to close. It also prohibits correction officers from assisting federal authorities with the enforcement of detention.
At the bill signing ceremony, on the front steps of Our Lady Sorrows Church in Corona, the mayor said the legislation balance public safety with the city’s effort to protect the rights of immigrants.”
