Court smacks down Indiana city’s attempt to establish sanctuary city

An Indiana court last week smacked down an attempt by the city of East Chicago to provide a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants — a practice encouraged by Democrat leaders including President Joe Biden — ruling that the movement opposes the state’s ban on the practice.

Judge Thomas Hallett of Lake County Superior Court ruled the policies in the Chicago suburb violated Indiana’s 2011 sanctuary city ban.

“Sheltering illegal aliens from immigration authorities not only flagrantly violates duly-enacted Indiana law, but represents a serious public safety and national security risk,” Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) Executive Director Dale Wilcox released in a statement, according to WJR.

“When cities such as East Chicago insist on putting the interests of illegal aliens above those of their own citizenry, they have to be stopped, and we are pleased the court did just that,” he added.

Lawyer James Bopp, Jr. represented residents Greg Serbon and John Allen. He wrote in a statement, “We are pleased that, after extended litigation, the court has recognized the obvious fact that such ordinances are illegal in Indiana,” according to NWI Times.

Bopp also said, “There must be no more such ordinances in Indiana, and those in existence are clearly in violation of Indiana law.”

The case follows a similar ruling in Nov. 2020 in Gary, Indiana. Bopp also won, with the court ruling against sanctuary city policies.

As immigration policies change nationwide, some states are pushing back against cities seeking sanctuary city status. Those who do often have the law on their side, offering protection against new leftist immigration policies.

I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where I started.

VERY GOOD POINT! And I agree. Through the years I’ve found that if you got it you don’t have to show it. If you ain’t got it you make a big show of showing how much you’ve got. Personally, all I care for is that I’m somewhat comfortably retired. That’s all I care for unless Biden decides to take it away.

Now we know IL is breaking federal laws just like other states and you liberal people should be ashamed. My suggestion is take all your money and pay to support the illegal immigrants in their home country.

I think Canada has lots of room for all of these illegal aliens. Biden and Harris could become King and Queen and we could get some decent leadership.

BIDEN, and his BOSSES IN THE RADICAL LEFT, are out to change the traditions and beliefs of our country! I DON’T BELIEVE that moderate DEMS want this and leads the REAL AMERICANS TO VOTE FOR LEADERS WHO PUT THEM FIRST! We will do best for these illegals to drive improvements in securing our borders so ONLY THOSE ENTERING LEGALLY CAN GET IN! Right now, if you FLY into the US you must provide documents clearing you from being infected with the virus, but they are FLOODING the US with illegals from the southern border have no such restrictions! YOU CAN HAVE ONE OR THE OTHER, NOT BOTH! BIDEN uses MILITARY RESOURCES to house these illegals and has FLOWN MORE THAN 7 THOUSAND ILLEGALS ALL OVER THE US! TEXAS NEEDS TO SUE THE BIDEN ADMIN FOR THE UNFAIR BURDEN HIS POLICIES HAVE PLACED ON THAT STATE! YOU CAN PUSH THE VIRUS PANIC, AND DESTROY OUR ECONOMY, OR ENFORCE THE SAME LAWS FOR THOSE ENTERING LEGALLY OR ILLEGALLY! THE DUAL LEGAL SYSTEM CREATED BY THE DEMS MUST END! VOTE FOR PRO MAGA IN 2022 OR OUR RIGHTS, AND STANDARD OF LIVING WILL CONTINUE TO DECLINE!

VA has sanctuary cities and it is horrible! Police are banned to turning in anyone that is wanted and if they do they are put on administrative leave. They aren’t allowed to do anything when it comes to illegals and blacks, even if they break the law. People don’t vote on these things. The Democrats are elected to office and do it on their own. Whether the votes were legal/fraud they take over.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I’ve been doing…>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
