Sanctuary Cities, the Blood is on the Left’s Hands

Opinion by Allen West

MS-13 gang
The question I have for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez — who voted to defund ICE — is what message do you have for the family of young Ariana Funes-Diaz? Yes, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, the blood of this young girl is on your hands.

USA – -( Well, it is obvious what the progressive socialist left believes is important. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has clued us in; it is all about President Trump being involved in obstructing justice and being part of a cover-up. As a matter of fact, that has become the new talking point of the left, cover up. They are hell-bent on impeaching President Trump, without any evidence, but that does not matter. It appears that the emotional meltdown of losing an election can only be rectified by impeaching the individual who sits in the White House.

Ya know, the “high crimes” of not being liked by the progressive socialist left.

But, as the left goes about throwing their child-like temper tantrum, people are dying due to their intransigence on the issue of illegal immigration.

As reported by Townhall:

“Two illegal aliens, one who came to the United States in 2015 as part of a “family unit” and the other unaccompanied in 2016, were released by the Prince George’s County Police Department after being charged with attempted first degree murder and other crimes.

Upon release, they killed 14-year-old girl Ariana Funes-Diaz and dumped her body in a creek. Prince George’s County, which contains Baltimore, is a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens. Both are members of the extremely violent gang MS-13.

“Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate,” ICE released in a statement.

“Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar, both Salvadoran nationals, were previously arrested on May 11, 2018 when they were arrested by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGCPD) for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges.”

ICE filed a request with the local Maryland police department to hold Fuentes-Ponce and Ernesto Escobar. In other words, they issued a detainer. Instead of being held, the two were released “on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE.”

At the time, Fuentes-Ponce had already been ordered for removal from the country by an immigration judge. Last week on May 16, 2019, the same two men were arrested again and charged with first-degree murder.”

This happened in the Congressional district represented by one Elijah Cummings, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Is anyone going to hold him accountable?

How about the Mayor of Baltimore, or the local county-elected officials who declared themselves a “sanctuary” for illegal immigrants, criminals? House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is from Maryland; Nancy Pelosi was born in Maryland. These are all the people who lead the Democrat (socialist) Party who prefer to eliminate ICE, have open borders, and refuse to correct our insane “asylum” provisions for illegal immigrants.

Remember the two young girls from Long Island, Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas, both brutally killed by MS-13 gang members? Remember that just last week a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot in the face by an MS-13 member?

The time has come to hold the elected officials who support illegal immigrants on our country to be charged as accomplices in these crimes. If there were no “sanctuary” states and cities, these animals would not be finding safe harbor. Remember Kate Steinle? If anything, these families should be able to bring lawsuits against these jackass politicians who are responsible for the loss of life of their loved ones, such as the case with Officer Ronil Singh.

Just have to tell y’all, if I were Secretary of Homeland Security, these criminal illegal immigrants would be disappearing off our streets, dead or alive, doesn’t matter. No, I am sorry, they are not entitled to equal protection under our laws because they are not here in our country legally. Anyone obstructing our system of law, justice, would be arrested right along with them.

The question I have for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez — who voted to defund ICE — is what message do you have for the family of young Ariana Funes-Diaz? Yes, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, the blood of this young girl, is on your hands and the rest of your progressive socialist cohorts. I guess that matters little since your collective ideological agenda is more important than the lives of young American girls.

The progressive socialist left wants to flood our streets with these criminal illegal immigrants gang members. At the same time, they also want to disarm law-abiding, legal gun owning Americans, precluding us from being able to defend ourselves from these savage, barbaric miscreants?

I struggle to understand why in the world the victims and families of the victims do not sue these municipalities for not following Federal Laws in removing these illegal invader criminals from our country. The cities, states and police are directly responsible for the ensuing deaths these criminals commit and should be held civilly responsible. Let these liberal sanctuary locations be on the defensive at all times or better yet, go bankrupt from civil fines.

Shame on every Gun Owner who votes Democrat.

William Haseley

Tim v, you are so right, something has to be done, most likely , by citizens like you and i, we can’t depend on government or any one else, arm up and protect those you love and care about, including elderly who cannot protect themselves. God is on our side.

This is our country, the American man and woman, and child ,who built this country doing the right thing, I don’t care what race you are, as long as your are a good, contributing ,person who loves America, contributes, and are not an asshole , who thinks it’s alright to do whatever you want to cause problems because you are some spoiled little bitch , one day you will run into me, or someone like me ,and then you will have an awakening.

Its already here, if your not prepared ,your in a world of hurt, arm up big time, protect those you love, don’t be stupid, the worst is yet to come, god bless .

Rocky mountain, i,m with you. They will not make us submit, ever. They don’t have the guts for a long drawn out no holds barred , fight, period.


For as long as I have been on this earth if a person makes a poor decision and it affects to life of another person you will be held responsible for your decision. We have gone so far out of the norm that politicians can make decisions without any fear of being held responsible. It is past time for all that to change, also. When a politician makes the decision to harbor illegals and the illegal harms anyone that politician should be made to hold his hand up and say “I did it”. Actually, he should be made to pay… Read more »

Illegal is Illegal, if they do the crime serve the time don’t deport them, throw them in jail and throw the key away, or shot while trying to escape easy and cheaper than supporting them for life sentence, oh I really didn’t mean to put that down, pardon my resent brain fart , my fingers got confused!!!!!!!!

USMilitary Admiral on Fox News holding up Satan horns hand sign identical to MS 13 who is doing it also in the next article. USA can’t figure out why Trump is trucking them in.
Like Trump said, “Americans will not go silently into the night.”
I believe him.

Muslims ain’t on social media laughing at you because you got balls while they take your country over right before your eyes and Trump drives them in personally. If Hillary drove them in you would be 10 times more angry and yet still sitting there whining about your rights that they threw in trash 150 years ago. Muslims know this and it’s why they are laughing at you. Boot kickers surrender rights with no fight then surrender country and finance enemy. Pathetic. You won’t find anyone in Colorado to stand up either because they already have those big hijab beards… Read more »

Bring back the Death Penalty, you take a life we take yours, fair trade.

Citizens with the skills, abilities and courage will need to decide if they can and will protect their innocent and generally unable-to-protect-themselves fellow citizens from criminal illegals, in the absence of justice from the ‘System’. This includes releasing proven and convicted criminals into these sanctuaries, from where they continue to prey upon our citizens, while these sanctuaries turn a corrupt, blind eye towards justice. There comes a point of decision – how much crime against good citizens must we endure from these elements? They have a foothold now, via the sanctuaries, and corrupt government at all levels, including Congress. Criminal… Read more »

Because are spineless “bootlickers” like the Muslims keep saying.


You are my hero, simply for ending this awesome article with “FUBAR”! A better one word description of the cluster f%#k that is the democrats (a.k.a. socialists) sitting in government of our beloved America, frankly, does not exist!

Joe Moore

When citizens (especially politicians and judges) willingly put on the uniform of the enemy, they become the enemy.


Who cares? Sanctuary cities and their syphilitic, corrupt, criminal policies would not exist if Federal Immigration Laws were enforced to the letter, beginning about 50-60 years ago. I saw it during my 30-year tour of duty as a Peace Officer in SoCal. I lay the blame directly at the feet of the Dead Elephant Party, who wanted cheap, union-busting labor and the Infanticide Party, who wanted legions of parasite voters to keep them in power. You sow the wind, you reap the whirlwind. There is no voting our way out of this. Get out of these Blue Hives while you… Read more »

Did your badge have those symbols on it like the pedophila symbol and so forth?


Time to stop this BS. Any time a thugs does something after being released arrest the judge and DA as an accessory after the fact! When just one sticks the rats will leave the sinking ship!!


Well said, Sir. Maybe if we can throw the lib-tards out of office here in Texas and clean up our sanctuary cities (Houston, El Paso, San Antonio…and, of course AUSTIN), we can set the tone for the other 49. I agree with your opinion that illegals have no constitutional rights. They need to be in separate prisons awaiting export, on about 1000 calories a day and trucked out to middle of the chihuahuan desert…and left there. Or put down like the animals they are.


The thugs are propably who the demoncraps seek out to try to eliminate us who own firearms and prefer a peaceful free country when the S.H.T.F. Why else would they give them free reign?

Albert Ortiz

History can be repeated over and over because we lack the experience in those who lived and remembered …. Nothing is more harmful then the absence of conscience in a person brain . That life is cheap and useless in the eyes of a killer , to able to walk the Earth and feel the darkness is not normal or acceptable in a civilized world .

Rocky Mountain

If only one (civilized) existed. There’s not enough profit for the Nazi mafia unless they have tyranny. Leasing enshrined rights to bootlickers is case in point. Mad Max of thunder dome was not civilized and neither is current humanity. Civilized civilization is a myth.

Gov running slow on here today is it a holiday?

Gas Block in WA

The RINO’s in Congress are just as guilty. Sorry.

Rocky Mountain

Traitors aren’t exclusively on any particular side of the isle. A good test to determine them is in fact their interpretation of 2A. Is why 2A only enshrines an already granted right that came from GOD through gift of life. Founders put 2A there as a test to which few politicians can successfully pass. Unfortunately the vast majority of politicians want to believe 2A is the right so therefore it can be taken because they can put their filthy hands on it but this is not true. 2A is equal to your skin in that it can’t be separated from… Read more »


Want to end sanctuary cities. Easy. Every time a legal citizens is harmed or killed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN. A sanctuary supporter needs to receive the same consequences. Starting with Politicians,Judges,lawyers,Philanthropists and Hollywood Types. Until these people feel the impact of Their support for ILLEGALS. They will continue to use Their influence,power and money to promote ILLEGALS.

Rocky Mountain

yes I agree and disarming these officials and eliminating ALL of their security forces would help also. Could you just imagine if they had no protection and had to do what The People demanded in the Constitution to be popular? Those who truly are representing The People wouldn’t need any protection only traitors need armed forces due to their unpopularity. My idea of Utopia.




Given a choice I would prefer other ways to instill personal responsibility, serious economic consequences perhaps, and jail time, or other not physically violent approaches, but in the absence of those options this would certainly be effective ….

Rocky Mountain

Iranian proxies in sanctuary cities are also 5th column forces and as the Iran issue remains hot be advised Iran’s proxies in USA may begin attacking now that Trump has gone offensive on the deep state traitors. Carry your guns and bums, be ready. Patriots are the first and last line of civil defense in USA. Be sure both short and long gun are handy. Rise of 5th column forces will prompt the insurrection act. Otherwise chill out grab some popcorn and watch deep state going down for count.

Rocky Mountain

Sue (personally) any gov employee that infringes upon your rights. Treason is not used in this article so please add it because that is what this attack on our rights and supporting of 5th column forces is, treason. Treason is listed as a high crime so they can look no further than right before their own eyes where treason exists in plain sight. Carry a gun and protect yourselves from socialist 5th column subversive traitors and their forces. Fail to convict (jury nullification) gun toters seeking to protect themselves, their families, friends and country from 5th column scum. When they… Read more »


No declared war? It ain’t treason! Get it right.

Rocky Mountain

Explain that to Trump.
Aiding and abetting ones enemy and attempted over through of USA and Constitution is in fact treason.


optional-kotex got’s to protec them dem vo-tuhs


So if the “Right” says they will not enforce federal law -gun laws- at the local level it is a Glorious celebration of the 10th amendment. Yet if this is done by the Left” – immigration law- they are dirty commie scum.
See the Problem? To protect OUR Rights we have to give other rights equal support eventhough we may not like them.
FYI: This is not jsut in “left” towns like L.A. and San Francisco, many towns with Conservative elelcted leaders are doing this because they aere liable for the inevitable civil rights violations.


Yes I know typos- stupid “smart” phone 🙂


The difference being those gun control laws make criminals of law abiding citizens while sanctuary cities protect those who already are criminals.
