SICKENING DEADLY LEGACY OF SANCTUARY CITIES
September 8, 2008
In the “War on Terror”, four times more Americans died at the hands of illegal aliens within the United States than U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan--for the past seven years. Illegal aliens continue their own ‘killing zone’ against Americans in every corner of American society.
Three years ago, an illegal alien, after being stopped by police and released three times, Gomez-Garcia, executed Denver Officer Don Young in Denver, Colorado. Another illegal alien, Francisco Montero, with 11 prior stops for drunk driving, killed Dale Englerth in Boulder, Colorado. Yet another illegal alien killed Officer Brian Jackson in Dallas, Texas last year. Another illegal killed Officer Nick Erfle in Phoenix, Arizona. Two more illegals ran over and nearly killed former Colorado University pro-prospect quarterback John Hessler, sending him into a wheelchair for life with severe brain damage. Both illegals fled back to Mexico.
Last year, in New Jersey, two illegal aliens executed three black American college students in the back of their heads as they knelt in a vacant alley.
Last month, in San Francisco, Edwin Ramos coldly shot Mr. Tony Bologna, 48, and his two sons, Michael, 20, and Mathew 16, while they sat in their cars in traffic.
What did all those illegal aliens hold in common? Answer: police arrested every single one of them multiple times. Many sported rap sheets five pages long with felonies, drunken driving, rapes, burglaries, car theft and worse. What else did they hold in common? Answer: every single one of them enjoyed exemption from the law. How did they accomplish freedom from the law? Answer: every one of them lived and worked in a “Sanctuary City” within the United States that gave them immunity from arrest and deportation for their status as illegal aliens.
In other words, our laws do not pertain to them. They could drive drunk, drive without a license, drive without insurance, work without papers, not pay taxes and live within the United States totally against our laws. As the Southwest Airlines ad says, “You’re free to move about the country!”
Who stands guilty of all these deaths? For starters, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, San Francisco’s Mayor Newsome, Mayor Gordon of Phoenix, Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago, Mayor Bloomberg in NYC, and my Mayor John Hickenlooper in Denver, Colorado. Every mayor of every sanctuary city stands in direct violation of U.S. federal laws and in direct violation of their oaths of office. Every one of those mayors from the past and into the future stands responsible for killing thousands of American citizens.
But last week, the most horrendous of “Sanctuary City” killing crimes occurred in Denver, Colorado. See story in the Denver Post: “ICE holds crash driver”
An illegal alien from Mexico, with 16 prior arrests, 11 aliases--Francis Hernandez, 23, drunker than a skunk on a Saturday night, drove his vehicle into a Baskin-Robbins ice cream parlor—killing Patricia Guntharp, 49, and Debra Serecky, 51. But more than the two adults who lived two-thirds of their lives, Hernandez killed a little boy, Marten Kudlis, three years of age, as he sat on a stool happily licking his ice cream cone.
This story turns your stomach. It sickens your heart. It leaves a sour taste in your mouth. It grinds at your senses. It bedevils your sense of right and wrong.
Why do you obey our laws, but our own elected officials refuse their obligations to serve and enforce our statues? Even Colorado Governor Ritter gave hundreds of known drug dealers ‘agricultural trespass’ that allowed them back onto the streets during his tenure as Denver’s district attorney.
That three year old child Marten never stood a chance against a career criminal because Mayor John Hickenlooper offers ‘sanctuary’ for illegal aliens in Denver. In fact, even more horrific, Hickenlooper owned the “Cherry Cricket Restaurant” where the killer Gomez-Garcia worked when he shot Denver Officer Don Young. But it doesn’t end there--Hickenlooper stood by as another young man, husband and father, Justin Goodman died at the hands of another illegal alien three years ago—by a hit and run illegal with a five page rap sheet but no deportation. Added to that, Denver suffers 12,000 gang members, mostly illegal aliens—that Hickenlooper allows immunity from prosecution via his “Sanctuary Policy”.
According to Joseph Farrah, World Net Daily, “Though no federal statistics are kept on murders or any other crimes committed by illegal aliens, a number of groups have produced estimates based on data collected from prisons, news reports and independent research.
”Twelve Americans are murdered every day by illegal aliens, according to statistics released by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. If those numbers are correct, it translates to 4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. That's 21,900 since Sept. 11, 2001.
“The carnage wrought by illegal alien murderers represents only a fraction of the pool of blood spilled by American citizens as a result of an open border and un-enforced immigration laws.
“While King reports 12 Americans are murdered daily by illegal aliens, he says 13 are killed by drunk illegal alien drivers – for another annual death toll of 4,745. That's 23,725 since Sept. 11, 2001.
“While no one – in or out of government – tracks all U.S. accidents caused by illegal aliens, the statistical and anecdotal evidence suggests many of last year's 42,636 road deaths involved illegal aliens.
“A report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Study found 20 percent of fatal accidents involve at least one driver who lacks a valid license.
“King also reports eight American children are victims of sexual abuse by illegal aliens every day – a total of 2,920 annually.
“Based on a one-year in-depth study, Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute of Atlanta estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each. She analyzed 1,500 cases from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.”
All of those illegal alien criminals enjoy “Sanctuary City” protection from nearly 30 major cities in the United States—all in violation of the U.S. Constitution. (USC 8, 1374, 274, 275, 276)
What if Mayor Hickenlooper’s family members suffered death, rape or molestation by an illegal? Would he rescind his “Sanctuary Policy” in Denver? Would Bloomberg in New York City? Would Mayor Gordon in Phoenix?
A profound depression hovers over me as I write this column. What if Marten Kudlis had been my son, my only son, as he was the Kudlis’ only child? I find my sense of reason, logic and rational action defeated by these men in office, not only as mayors of cities, but all the way to the U.S. House, Senate and President Bush himself. As we suffer invasion by upwards of 20 million illegal aliens overrunning our communities, those men in high office do nothing to stop it.
They not only refuse to uphold their oaths of office, they, instead--aid, abet and assist illegal aliens to kill American citizens and wreak havoc on our communities and lives. It’s beyond comprehension and it’s beyond sickening. Both presidential candidates failed to breathe a word about it in the RNC and DNC.

We can only wonder if the next victim of an illegal alien kills a daughter or son of a governor, mayor, senator, House rep or one of President Bush’s family—would they take action for the rest of us who suffer losses daily?
