There are cracks in the sanctuary policies in some jurisdictions

Jazz Shaw:
It’s beyond question that sanctuary state/city policies have hindered the ability of federal immigration enforcement officials to do their jobs. Too many criminal illegal aliens are still being released back onto the streets because ICE isn’t informed and given enough time to pick them up. But all the news isn’t bad. As it turns out, in many cities and counties with these so-called sanctuary laws in place, the local cops have continued working with ICE in more “unofficial” ways, maintaining long-standing personal relationships and using those connections to get the job done. And there are plenty of Democrats that are simply furious over this. (Associated Press)

Two years after New Mexico’s largest county barred local law enforcement from cooperating with immigration authorities, its leaders learned that the policy was being subverted from within.

Staff members at the Bernalillo County jail in Albuquerque were still granting immigration authorities access to its database and, in some cases, tipping them off when a person of interest was being released.

“I was surprised and horrified,” said Maggie Hart Stebbins, chairwoman of the Bernalillo County Commission. “Individual employees do not have the freedom to pick and choose what they want to observe.”

There’s an interesting response for you. The Chair of New Mexico’s Bernalillo County Commission was (direct quote) “surprised and horrified” to find that known criminal illegal aliens were, in at least some cases, being taken into custody for processing, prosecution, and possible deportation. This is apparently what passes for “a bad thing” in some Democratic circles.

Shaw provides other examples.  The good news that not everyone in so-called sanctuary communities are idiots.  Some recognize the idiocy of releasing criminal illegal aliens back into the community.  I think the elected officials who give sanctuary to criminal illegal aliens should be prosecuted as accessories in any subsequent crimes they engage in.
