Cuomo Won’t Report Illegal Alien Criminals

From CNN:

New York pulls out of federal immigration program

June 1, 2011

New York (CNN) — New York is pulling out of a controversial federal program aimed at catching and deporting illegal immigrants with criminal histories, the state’s governor said Wednesday.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he is suspending the state’s participation in the program because of concerns about "its impact on families, immigrant communities and law enforcement in New York."

Will New York’s Medicaid funds be withheld? Or any other federal taxpayer money? (We’re just kidding, of course.)

Under the program, known as Secure Communities, law enforcement agencies run the fingerprints of people they arrest against immigration databases, aiming to find illegal immigrants.

Lest we forget, we are told by the administration that they are now only deporting illegal aliens with criminal records. Meanwhile, they are allowing states to refuse to check the criminal records of any illegals they accidentally nab – often in the act of committing a crime or at least an illegal infraction.

Critics have said it results in deportations of immigrants who are in the United States illegally but have no criminal arrest record.

Er, exactly how does that happen? (Hint: it doesn’t.)

Cuomo described some of those criticisms in a letter sent to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Wednesday.

"The heart of concern is that the program, conceived of as a method of targeting those who pose the greatest threat in our communities, is in fact having the opposite effect and compromising pubic safety by deterring witnesses to crime and others from working with law enforcement," he wrote

Note that Mr. Cuomo didn’t claim innocent people were being deported. He just said deporting criminals might make people stop reporting crimes. Which, of course, is a preposterous lie, even for a Democrat of his lineage.0

Cuomo’s announcement was the latest sign that the federal program, which authorities plan to deploy nationwide in 2013, is facing growing opposition from some state and local officials.

2013 being after Mr. Obama has been safely re-elected.

Last month Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn also said his state was withdrawing from the program. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has held a series of public meetings soliciting opinions on it.

And San Francisco Sheriff Michael Hennessey said that starting Wednesday, he would ignore Secure Communities requests to detain undocumented immigrants suspected of low-level misdemeanors, CNN affiliate KTVU reported…

Note that CNN’s "growing opposition" amounts to one state, Obama’s own Illinois, and a San Francisco sheriff. — Now that is a groundswell

But CNN is happy to tell any lie necessary to try to help their Democrat masters get more illegal aliens undocumented Democrats to the polls. And who cares if they are felons?

    Why do I get the impression that all of these “progressive” states are doing this in order to thumb their nose at SB 1070? Their plans are literally the antithesis of it (SB 1070).

    Then maybe Cumquat shouldn’t have taken the Oath of Office.
    This now makes him Impeachable and any other YaaHoo that thumbs
    their nose at the “Illegal” problem…….under said nose!
    America as a whole is being tossed under the bus…….damn the legalese.
    It’s okay to kill a innocent baby legally with Fed $$ but ridding
    our population of illegal criminals with Fed $$ is FUBAR.
    Gawd…..I need a drink!

    The misconception of the whole mess is this: That by allowing illegals free passage in our country, the democrats somehow think this will result in more votes for their party. In reality, first of all, the violent and felony-type criminals don’t come out to vote anyhow. The ones here illegally who “just want a job” are usually at their illegal, paid-under-the-table job and wouldn’t be allowed to leave to go vote anyhow. The ones here legally who are of their same general background, are usually devout Catholics and don’t like the ones who come here illegally because they consider it a slap in the face for their ignoring the law.

    The socialist democrats have made the mistake of painting them all with the same racist brush, as always…that they, the democrats are the “benevolent saviors” of their “race” and that they are paving the way to get them more stuff.

    Additionally, they create their sanctuary cities and then find themselves in a literal war over territory when the illegals squat and take over certain areas with crime. It gets cops and citizens killed alike, as well as other illegals who are at the mercy of the dangerous types. But you can’t reason this out with a national socialist. They will resort to calling you a racist in 0.0003 seconds and that’s the end of the discussion.

    I Arizona I worked with a lot of people of Mexican descent and they felt as I did, that they need to keep out, stop subverting the system and stop it with the drug trade. So, to me, they sound very much conservative. The ones marching in the streets want their free ride and are most likely illegally here. They don’t care because they know, unlike in Mexico, they won’t be carted off to a filthy prison and beaten within an inch of their life, starved and left to die.

    But the argument goes much deeper than “letting people who want to be free….be free”. There is a process. And it’s not for bureaucrats to give away for nothing. Of course, they expect repayment in the form of a vote for them. That will backfire, I am sure as they think they can co-opt the illegal vote the way they did the black vote, by buying them. What they fail to realize is that many of these they are hoping to buy are incredibly strong, proud people. I will use the Irish as a similarity. Yes, the Irish immigrants in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s, in Chicago, were treated worse than blacks. But, inasmuch as there was a bad element, the strong, ethical and proud element grew away from that and carved out a niche for themselves.

    I would like to believe the Mexicans who come here legally, and even many who don’t, are still more willing to lean conservative than to let their lives be run by social democrats. Time will tell.

    However, with that said, I still say build the damned wall and build it now. It would probably have been the best, most visible use of TRAP money ever.

    Wouldn’t want to annoy all of those illegal Democrat voters, now would we, Andy!!!!

  5. beautyofreason says:

    When criminals become populous enough to vote for their own exemptions from the law, we lose the country. We are not equal if some people are allowed to break American law because of their ethnicity. The illegal is allowed to stay without a driver’s license, auto insurance, taxes, occupancy limits in housing, or anything else required for us mere mortals. They’re exempt from the health care insurance requirements too, but don’t worry federal aid programs will help them out! The SNAP food aid program automatically qualifies immigrant children.

    If these illegals become citizens and are subject to minimum wage laws like our glorious despots in New York want, then nobody will hire them over Americans because companies only hire day laborers to save money. But by then they will have had their anchor children, food stamps, nicely dispersed in segregated communities that copy Mexico to vote for the next wave of illegal immigration so who cares. And Democrats will have their votes.

    Liberals can thumb their noses at Arizona but at the end of the day the Democrats are selling out the country. It’s little better than treason.

    Hey Andy!? Where’s our missing $59 BILLION you … you …. Democrat?


    Think on this …. Andrew Cuomo headed HUD under Bill Clinton and during his tenure managed to make fifty nine billion dollars disappear. Let me repeat that …. fifty nine billion, and, Cuomo has never been charged or even seriously investigated. The object of the linked article says, after her forensic accounting examination authorized by the US Government that HUD was clearly a federalized mechanism for the Democratic Party for no other purpose than to LAUNDER MONEY.

    And you people scoff at me every time I mention Opium.

  7. canary says:

    Cuomo targeted and sicked the law on a blind Black American man who did not pose a threat, so he could get his job.

    Imagine a former U.S. Attorney General sympathizes with criminals that aren’t U.S. citizens. Being here illegally is a crime within itself, so who needs witnesses. With his past law position, I guess Cuomo knows mob mentality first hand.

    Will it lead to more illegals, gangs, drug lords, & middle-eastern terrorists from Mexico, moving to NY, IL, IN, CA? The illegal fake I.D. businesses will grow.

  8. Mithrandir says:

    UNLESS you make it so that whomever DOESN’T uphold the law, your rights, and the Constitution of the United States, they go to prison, lose money, lose their job etc…… BECAUSE WITHOUT IT, no judge, prosecutor, police-officer, public worker, politician needs to respect any law or right established in America.

    Plain and simple, “Yeah, so? What are you going to do about it?”

    Bought and paid for….The Chicago/New York way.

    May be wrong here…but just sayin’

    He’s doing too much cozying up to the muslims…and now the illegals.

    Must be nice to be able to chose which laws get enforced and which won’t. Nothing like being a nation of laws.

    I think I’d like to see one of these illegals break into HIS own house….think they would chose not to enforced the law then.
