Philadelphia Is Officially Enabling Illegals

By Wyatt Earp | June 29, 2010

I was born and raised here in Philadelphia. In 41 years, I have seen this city go from a decent place to live to a cesspool. That’s why I joined the police department 15 years ago. I figured I could fight crime and make the city a better place.

Then I was exposed to the reality: No one wants this city to improve, and criminals are given more rights that the citizens here. Kind of takes away a lawman’s idealism, as well as any incentive to put the bad guys away.

Philadelphia is expected to end the arrangement that permits federal immigration agents to scrutinize the city’s computerized list of arrests, including country of origin and other data, Everett Gillison, the deputy mayor for public safety, said Sunday.

Immigrant advocates say the year-old agreement between the city and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement service, known as ICE, has resulted in deportation proceedings against immigrants arrested on even minor charges. Under the agreement, ICE agents can routinely access the city’s Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System (PARS). That agreement is up for renewal on Thursday.

Mayor Nutter has expressed concern about the human rights of all immigrants, regardless of their legal status. In a directive he issued a year ago, he barred municipal employees on official business from inquiring about the immigration status of any person, including, but not limited to, victims, witnesses, arrestees, and detainees.

What part of illegal immigrants do you not understand, Mayor Squidward? This is not a human rights issue, you a-hole; it’s a criminal justice issue. Are you simply incompetent, corrupt, or both?

I guess crime is so bad here that you, the police commissioner, and the district attorney are just giving up. I guess you don’t want to offend thousands of potential Democrat voters.

At this point, criminals, thugs, and illegals might as well move here as soon as possible. You certainly won’t be prosecuted for your crimes. It’s Thunderdome!

    And in related news, the Philly PD has been instructed not to arrest burglars in hotels. Mayor Nutter has expressed concern about the human rights of all hotel guests, regardless of their legal status.

    The new Black Panther Party is going to need backup this next election cycle, don’t you know. What better thugs to have then those you can’t stop and question. Makes sense to me. LOL

    Political pandering at its worst; when coupled with efforts toward amnesty, it becomes a “back-door” voter registration drive. Wow, I thought things were bad in Miami….

    Shenanigans- you beat me on this one. I’m doing it anyway. I just finished my last night work and I’m fatigued AND pissed off. Should be classic… :(

    Sounds like Chicago. Illegal Alien, no problem we have Food Stamps, Welfare, Stroger Hospital all here waiting and wanting to serve you.

    Want to get a gun. Nope. Only when the Supremes took Daley to the woodshed is that happening.

    And he is still vowing to fight it.

    It must be good being Supreme Emperor.

    As the bumper sticker says “Sneaking across the border does not make you an immigrant. It makes you a deportable criminal.” It seems the inmates are now in charge of the asylum.

    [...] good friend Wyatt beat me to the punch on this one but great minds think alike. In this case we are in lock step [...]

    What will Nutter say when an illegal violent felon is protected by his new rules and the illegal kills or maims or robs again?

    I cannot express the depths of my gratitude and admiration of cops like Wyatt, and those in Philly, and Seattle and other blue cities.

    The cities where the cops are the enemy, even to their own command. The cities where arresting bad guys is bad, but then the Line LEOs are blamed for high crime.

    It takes a strong person to get up put on the badge and work in those conditions day after day. No credit, only blame.

    THANK YOU doesn’t begin to cover it, the debt we own these men and women. Who go to work despite everything, they go to work and protect you and I to the best of their ability, even while being hindered by the elected officials who are also sworn to protect the citizens.

    THANK YOU Wyatt, and every other LEO does The Job, day in and day out.

    Maybe Nutter’s gunning for a cabinet-level position in the 0bama White House.

    Being a big pom-pom waver for sanctuary cities (or at least ignoring the dire consequences) seems to be a prerequisite.

    Well, if it helps, MA is just like Phili, except the whole damn liberal state helps the illegals. . . .

    Ironically, there was an article in the AZ Republic this weekend about some illegals leaving Phoenix because of SB1070.

    You’ll never guess what state they were headed to…

    John D – You know the really sad part? We all thought John Street was a piece of garbage when he was in office. I would take him back in a second.

    Jon – Police officers are not being able to enforce the law, or share information with other agencies. But when some clerk from a city councilwoman’s office calls about her neighbor, we have the fax everything we have to them.

    FDLE Lew – Just replace Cubans with Mexicans, and you got it!

    Captain – Did you expect anything less from the Democrats?

    Ferrell – Wait until a illegal guns down one of the politicians’ pals. Then we’ll be able to ask anything.

    MeToo – Philadelphia: 55+ Years of Uninterrupted Democrat Rule.

    AJ – Like Nutter will care if it’s one of the little people.

    JCM – You’re welcome. Thank you for the thanks. Policies like these are a morale killer, and a lot of us are doing the bare minimum – lest we get a reprimand from some idiot in city hall.

    Rick – Meh, I’m vested here.

    Jon – Thanks.

    Fenway – Allowing criminals to get a free pass is the staple of the Democrat Party.

    JDalco – Fortunately, it’s just Philly and Pittsburgh. Most of the rest of the state has common sense.

    CM – Sweet! Bring us your tired, your poor, your illegal masses.

    From Montana History and the Gold Rush of 1864 at Last Chance Gulch. 3-7-77
    The Vigilance Committees way of telling you to get out of town by sun up. There may, I say again, may have been some doubt. But not likely.
    Failure to abide meant a date with the rope, tree, horse method of demise.
    Wyatt, it may be time for the “good citizens” of Philadelphia to take matters into their own hands.
    Just a thought, ya know!

    “3-7-77 The Vigilance Committees way of telling you to get out of town by sun up.”

    Here’s an interesting bit of trivia: The Montana Highway Patrol’s patch includes the numbers 3-7-77, as a tribute to the Vigilance Committee.

    Wow, you know it’s bad when John Street looks good in comparison. I wrote a letter to the editor of the Stinkwirer when saw that article; but I doubt it will be published.

    I read that same article Code Monkey referenced — read it here:

    Interesting Jim. Did anyone else notice that the photo with the article shows the 2 year old riding in the front seat without being in a child safety seat? So they are worried about being stopped by the police but then they break a law that is easily viewed from outside the vehicle. And when they get in a crash with no license and no insurance and their kid needs thousands of dollars of medical care because they didn’t restrain them then the evil citizens of Arizona or the US in general will pick up the tab and that is OK with them.

    Glenn – In the bad neighborhoods, there aren’t any good people left, and they never cross their Democrat/Union masters.

    John D – I didn’t know that. Cool.

    Jim – She sent it to me. It was nauseating.

    Ingineer66 – And that’s why they may come here. I guess Philly will roll out the red carpet.
