A day after the open borders mob shouted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) off the podium it turned its wrath on Attorney General Jeff Sessions - someone who has long understood and opposed their agenda. Sessions was in Portland, Oregon, to reaffirm his intention to carry out the duty as the nation's chief law enforcement official to protect the security of the American people.
Portland was the ideal setting for the attorney general to address the dangers of sanctuary policies. Between December 2016 and July 2017, Portland police arrested Sergio Martinez six times. Despite being a one-man crime wave, with convictions in multiple states, and having been deported 12 times, local authorities still ignored an ICE detainer request. After his latest release from police custody in July, Martinez sexually assaulted a 65-year-old woman and bashed in the head of another woman.
Even after this high profile case, the Oregon Legislature and Gov. Kate Brown increased protections for criminal aliens. But it still was not enough to satisfy the no-enforcement mob, singling out Gov. Brown and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for not doing more to prevent any enforcement. "What happens when there are deportations in this county? They don't have anything to say about it. They stay quiet when it comes to that," demanded Juan Rogel, the director of a local advocacy group.
It should becoming increasingly clear to these politicians that the radical mass immigration lobby they have cultivated for political purposes will ultimately devour them, along with the rule of law.
