Democratic Governor Deals Blow to Immigration Activists by Rejecting Sanctuary City Push

Published

Kansas Democratic Governor Laura Kelly is diverting from many other Governors in her party and refusing to create a sanctuary city for illegal migrants. Instead, Kelly chooses to focus on bettering her community and the lives of her constituents.

“Both Republicans and Democrats in Washington have failed to address immigration issues for decades,” Kelly said in the statement. “We need a national solution and we need it now” said Kelly about supporting the Republican-back bill.

Kelly signed the bill on Monday “that will thwart hard-fought efforts by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas, to issue municipal IDs to residents unable to get legal photo IDs.”

Kelly made a bold move, as she is up for re-election in November. The law originated with Republican Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who is expected to be the Republican candidate running against Kelly.

Schmidt objected to the ordinance, saying Wyandotte County would become a “sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal immigrants,” and calling on the Legislature to ban sanctuary cities in the state.

Schmidt said Kelly did not have much option other than to sign “the veto-proof” bill. The “bipartisan support for this bill in the Legislature demonstrated its importance,” he said. “Under this new law, Kansas law enforcement will be able to resume working professionally with federal immigration authorities … and not be silenced by a patchwork of local sanctuary city gag orders.”

      Why are democrats pushing sanctuary cities. Can’t they see the damage it creates for American lower income people. I guess they don’t care.

    Ironically Sanctuary Cities themselves are illegal.
    Laws apply to everyone or else they apply to no one.
    The Dems think that they can pick and choose which laws to follow.
    We need to elect people who will both push back and undo the fake laws that the Far Left have created. Please vote.

    When there is such a shortage in the grocery stores why bring in all the aliens, especially the criminals. We should take care of our own first. Stop Joe Biden from giving out free money, put our people back to work. Employers are begging for workers but we want good workers who are not illegal aliens.

    Laura Kelly a Democrat politician with a brain and a back bone! Pretending or not at least she has the courage to say it and think for herself and her state. Its been a long time since I said “Great Job” to a democrat but she deserves it!

    Same for Biden’s sudden reversal on ‘allowing’ new oil drilling permits on Federal land. These are all head fakes contrived by the Democrat Party leading to the 2022 election season.

    She signed a veto proof bill against sanctuary cities, just after vetoeing a bill to keep “transgenders” from competing in girls sports. So courageous.

Two dozen states sending National Guard troops to U.S.-Mexico border

“The border is secure” says Vice President Kamala Harris; yet almost two dozen states are sending up to 2,500 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. The assistance is aimed at helping federal immigration officials handle the border crisis.

“Groups that support tougher immigration restrictions say the deployment of the National Guard troops will help overburdened federal agencies deal with the surge of illegal immigration”, reports the Center Square.

The deployments were requested by the U.S. Department of Defense and Republican-led states like Kentucky, South Carolina and Arkansas, as well as Democratic-led states such as Rhode Island and Illinois will all be sending assistance. Other states sending troops include Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, DOD officials said.

“Several other states – Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oregon, Utah and Washington – will be providing National Guard aviation support for border operations, according to the department.”

“The U.S. Virgin Islands has also committed National Guard troops to the mission, which is being overseen by the U.S. Northern Command.”

The Center Square reports:

The troops were requested by DOD to assist U.S. Border Patrol in dealing with a surge of illegal trafficking of people, weapons and drugs into the country. The troops will work only in support missions, a Defense Department spokesman said, and are prohibited under federal law from detaining undocumented migrants or others caught crossing into the United States illegally…

…The U.S. Border Patrol has apprehended migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border more than 1.8 million times since October, breaking previous records, according to the agency. The Center Square, through its sources, reported in August the number of illegal entries is nearly 5 million since Biden began to occupy the White House in January 2020.
