Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch joined Gregg Jarrett, filling in for Lou Dobbs, to discuss new information he’s revealing about the secret backroom sanctuary city deals made by the Phoenix Police Chief, deals which are illegal, as Jarrett later shows.
Jarrett says, “So Phoenix pretends it is no longer a sanctuary city. Is it true that the chief of police struck a secret deal that now says police officers cannot get in contact with the feds about somebody who is here illegally?”
Farrell replies, “You are correct, and we have the documentation to prove it. Jerry Williams, who actually was a long term Phoenix PD officer, who then left and went out to California, then circled back to become chief. I have knowledge and experience with the chief going back decades now, a full decade. But she met with ACLU members and the ACLU spun off another group that calls themselves “People Power.” Their logo is a clenched red fist.”
Farrell muses, “I don’t know why they just don’t bother to go ahead and call themselves a soviet. But nonetheless, we have documentation showing that they’ve now removed discretion from Phoenix Police Officers to exercise their authority. A Phoenix Police Officer can talk to every other federal law enforcement agency whether it’s FBI, ATF, but not ICE.”
Jarrett points out that “they’re doing it all secretly and under the table so that nobody knows about it, right? Farrell agrees. Jarrett asks, “Isn’t it also true that the new Maricopa County Sheriff has essentially opened the jailhouse doors and allowed hundreds of criminal illegal ‘immigrants’ [alien squatters], including some violent offenders, to walk out the door?”
“Correct,” says Farrell, he has. And you know this was bad enough when ICE was doing it at the rate of 60,000 a year, back under the Jeh Johnson era, when he was DHS Secretary. Now, locally, this local sheriff is releasing out into the community, violent criminal offenders, with zero consequence.”
Jarrett points out that it’s “against the law and has been for 21 years, citing the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform Act, asking, “It’s against the law to do what they’re doing, isn’t it?” Jarrett asks, “So why aren’t the chiefs of police and sheriffs and mayors being prosecuted? And I’ll tell you how you do it. It’s a felony to harbor or shield somebody here illegally.” Once again he puts the statute on the screen in support of his position, which carries a five year sentence for conviction.
He asks Farrell, “Is it time we start prosecuting these people who are civic leaders who are breaking the law? ” Farrell points out in agreement the abuse former AG Eric Holder meted out to those who refused to violate the law in keeping with his dictates.
He says, “It certainly is within reason for an Attorney General Sessions to actually enforce the black and white letter law and say, ‘Look, public officials, you may have certain political beliefs or sentiments, that’s wonderful. That has nothing to do with reality, that has nothing to do with public safety and police officer safety, you need to enforce the law as written.
Jarrett points out that if somebody dies as a consequence of that shielding statute we just put on the screen, guess what the punishment is. It’s not five years, it’s life behind bars, as in the Kate Steinle case in San Francisco. That sheriff should be behind bars.
