I predict we will soon be able to date political posturing on "sanctuary cities" as being made B.S. or A.S.
B.S. is always a good description of the moral exhibitionists who put the wants of illegal aliens over the requirements of law and the wishes of citizens, but in this instance the abbreviation stands for "Before Singh." It’s named after Officer Ronil Singh, a legal immigrant to the United States who became a citizen and joined the Newman, California, police department.
Officer Singh was allegedly murdered while on duty by an illegal alien who then fled to a house where six other illegal aliens hid him while they tried to find a way to smuggle the murderer back to Mexico.
A.S. will of course be "After Singh."
Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s most recent pontification will be entered as B.S. statement. Villanueva is one of those thoroughly modern political police officers who runs his department with his finger in the air so as to detect the prevailing cultural wind direction.
Villanueva runs the nation’s largest sheriff’s department in Los Angeles County, California. Fox News reports that before a meeting of the L.A. board of supervisors on December 20, Villanueva declared, “We are going to physically remove ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers] from the county jails!” Fox doesn’t say if the newly-elected sheriff was pounding his chest.
Officer Singh was murdered on December 26.
Strangely enough, since Villanueva drew his exit door in the sand for illegal aliens he’s been very silent with regard to his sanctuary policies and eagerness to release illegal alien, repeat offenders back into society where they can interact with the law-abiding.
We’re pretty certain the social justice sheriff is biding his time until the Opposition Media tires of the story of Officer Singh’s death so it can concentrate on coverage more to its liking: The feelings and well-being of the next horde of border jumpers marching toward the U.S. for example.
The fact of the matter is every last California elected official — from newly elected Gov. Gavin Newsom to Sheriff Villanueva — who supports sanctuary policies for illegal aliens has blood on their hands. Each and every one of the deaths caused by released illegal aliens could have been prevented if the criminals had been handed over to ICE for deportation proceedings.
There is no excuse for supporting these policies and it’s a continuing scandal that Republican leadership allows sanctuary politicians to escape responsibility for this conspiracy to obstruct justice.
