Mayor Dances For Sanctuary Win Forgets Victims Of Illegal Immigrant Violence

The Philadelphia mayor, blasted by the White House after being filmed dancing in celebration after a judge ruled in favor of its sanctuary city status, was doing so because it was an “important moment for all Philadelphians,” his office said Friday, despite the city’s recent history of illegal immigrant-related crime.

A video tweeted by Mayor James Kenney’s deputy chief of staff showed him giddy after U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration can’t withhold grants to the city over policies that limit local law enforcement’s cooperation with federal immigration officials.

“Mayor Kenney displayed excitement because it was an important moment for all Philadelphians, especially our immigrant community,” Deana Gamble, his communications director, told Fox News on Friday.

Gamble said the city’s policies are designed to ensure individuals’ constitutional rights are protected.

    • I would like to know when this idiot thought illegal invaders were granted constitutional rights. He should be made to listen to testimony by victims of illegals involved in crime. Either he has turned a deaf ear to the pleas for justice or he just doesn’t give a dam.

        • Incorrect the constitution is clear the Bill of rights is the rights of the CITIZENS of the US the only thing FOREIGN NATIONALS have are basic human rights as defined by international treaties that congress has ratified and what US IMMIGRATION LAW says in the matter.

          To my knowledge none of them granted the rights of US citizens to FOREIGN nationals no matter where they are located.

          This means the do NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO VOTE or any of the other rights that explicitly state “THE PEOPLE” referring to US CITIZENS have.

          Further even if someone thinks they have CONSTITUTIONAL rights IT IS STILL ILLEGAL even for a US CITIZEN to cross the border without the proper paperwork and going through the LEGAL process to legally exit and enter the nation.

          The immigration laws which have been on the books since even before the 1952 consolidation of them are clear about this fact.

          Just setting foot inside the border DOES NOT instantly grant you citizenship and all the RIGHTS and privileges that come with it.

          Remember these other nations DO NOT treat US citizens who mistakenly cross unmarked borders or failed to check on what was ILLEGAL to bring across it as VICTIMS that need help and assistance at best they treat them as smugglers at worst SPIES. There was even a case where a bottle of over the counter (in the US) pain medicine got someone convicted of drug smuggling in one nation.

          So why should we PUT ASIDE laws that were passed to STOP smugglers, BANDITS, the spread of numerous illnesses and any other harm to the people of this nation simply because people who FAIL TO QUALIFY for legal entry or simply do not want to WAIT break the law and enter illegally.

          If I felt I did not want to WAIT for the bank or other place to allow me in and just went in anyway no one would be crying it was my RIGHT to do so they would be charging me with breaking and entry possibly even robbery if it turned out something was missing there would be no arguments about just because I made it inside that I have a RIGHT to stay there.

          The borders of this nation are the same as the doors on those places a LINE that requires legal permission from the federal government to cross doing so without it IS A CRIME.

          • How is it Terry they get away with breaking the law just like California. I just don’t know why they can’t charge the mayor and in the case of California Jerry Brown.

        • The 14th amendment to the constitution pertained to freed slaves after the civil war. It was not intended to give illegal aliens the same rights as citizens. It took liberal judges to make that stretch.

        • The Constitution was never written for anyone except American citizens,regardless of how many lies are told to the contrary. No government can expect to govern citizens of another country, just as citizens of a foreign country cannot expect rights granted to citizens of another country. The whole premise is totally ridiculous

    • Liberal judges can do what ever they want. The constitution and the law mean nothing to them. Hope this goes before the S.C.. I will pray for all the unsuspecting people in Philly..

      • it wont make it to the SCOTUS as in CaliFOREIGNia it would have been done by now..
        its up to the citizens and politicians they put in office to reverse the sanctuary laws.. As what has taken place in CaliFOREIGNia, just because one politician wants it doesnt mean everyone wants it.. Vote them out, and change it back..

        In Sacramento CA, the LIEberal County Supervisors pulled the contract with ICE for illegal detainees that are being held in the county jail.. 2 voted against it, 3 for.. of the 2 against it, they are Democrats.. ICE has until the end of June to remove the detainees and place them in another Jail.. last heard they will move them out of state..
        the downside, the county will lose an additional $6 million in extra Law Enforcement support from the Feds..
        also along with the downside, the same Supervisors claim they might want to raise taxes to make up the loss of revenue..
        If that even shows up on the books they will find themselves being voted out of office..
        even talk now, it seems they wont make it in the next election..

    • I would like to know if this judge is appointed or elected? If appointed how can he be fired. If elected the people of Philadelphia know what they need to do!

    • Can you imagine how many people would be dancing upon learning of his demise. Only in Philadelphia could an ingrate like him become a mayor.

    • I think it would be even better if the victims or family of victims started suing those mayors who allowed this to happen. They are not immigrants, they are criminal invaders.

      • Perhaps??!! What about the teeny-bopper vote? Wash.,DC has a proposal to lower the voting age to 16. Is it because of the great responsibility and character that they have shown in their lives to date? How different is it to truck-in illegals to vote, or to participate in demonstrations, than to “recruit” high schoolers to vote who haven’t had to wash their own underwear yet (but don’t mind having a day (or week) off from school to be interviewed by fawning idiots with microphones for TV).

    • THIS MAYOR IS NOT PROTECTING HIS OWN CITIZENS FROM CRIMES… WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES TO VOTE OUT COME NOV 2018,THE ENTIRE LYING CORRUPT, TREASONOUS, DEMOCRAT PARTY, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT END THE WASHINGTON PEDOPHILIA

    • The game is not over till the fat lady sings….This is going straight to the Supreme Court

    • Wake up and face dire reality: REVOLUTION will be the final SOLUTION – it always is against TYRANNY – whining and complaining and taking part in third world banana Republic elections – yes, that’s “USa” – doesn’t work anymore; it is way past time SHEEPLE face reality!

  1. I’m not surprised this Democrat mayor will throw citizens under the bus to pay for illegal immigrants. Democrats around the country are stealing from police/fire pensions to pay for their illegal voters. What I would find surprising is if Trump let some peon judges order him to keep giving money to these thieves which they have no right to do.

  2. How sad for our country, that we have so many traitors running our cities and states. Did this moron get paid off by soro’s? Shame on any judge that would rule against our country. Needs to be removed.

  3. Mayor Kenney is either very cold or very stupid. Fact is illegal aliens commit 5,639 murders in the U.S. every year. More illegals? More murders.

  4. Wait until one of these illegals he danced gleefully for murders one of his citizens, or raped a little girl, or shot one of his policemen what kind to dance will he perform. This is the first time I became of this jackass mayor of a lovely city. And in my opinion Mayor James Kenny why don’t you be a good boy and just resign from office.

    • We already know since according to crime statistics these things have already happened before this ruling ever happened hence the VICTIMS mentioned in the title.

  5. It’s time to start questioning, WTF happened to this country, when those elected to run it, are more concerned with ILLEGAL ALIENS, than our citizens!!!!

  6. With testosterone levels decreasing in men, the numbers of sissy boy American white males like this goofball Philadelphia mayor, are increasing!!!!!!

  7. Wait until his wife or a family member gets whacked by an illegal..Perhaps then his sissy dance and gleeful attitude will change. Hope not, but Karma has a strange way of dealing with all this..So far the Isalmists have targeted New York, Boston…will Philly be next? They’ve hit Dallas, Houston, and LA, and San Fran..sounds like Thunder from the east may be coming to visit. Time will tell.

  8. What else would expect……he is looking for votes so he will do whatever to get them…whether if its good for the city or not. As long as he is liked he will be re-elected….just hope he does not get any higher in the political arena…..karma has its own way of turning the tables…………

  9. How do people like this loon get elected? Must be voter fraud or he lets the illegals vote!
    What a disgrace Mayor Kennedy is or maybe traitor is a better word!
    God bless and save America! Go,Trump 2020! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  10. Not that I wish harm on anyone, but he’ll be doing a different dance when some illegal victimizes him or his family.

  11. Obama Strikes again. Another one of his Obama’s judges, Becomes a Criminal, Breaks Federal Law and is Rewarded by being allowed to get away with it and keep his job. We Will NEVER STOP CRIME IN AMERICA UNTIL WE GET RID OF ALL THESE CRIMINAL JUDGES AND POLITICIANS AIDING AND ABETTING CRIMINALS AND THE CRIMES THEY ARE COMMITTING.

  12. I’m not surprised that we have people in public office in cities who do not love our country and our freedoms. Those freedoms do not, to me, mean that a city or state can decide that illegal aliens have constitutional rights. Those rights are reserved to “we the people of the United states…”! However, it was the judicial system that decided the 14th Amendment gave some rights to illegal aliens and that poor decision has been furthered by other courts. “We the people” need to look at our judges who rule in offensive manners and work to see them removed.

  13. This ignorant and perhaps stupid mayor should be dancing in front of Lady Justice in a court of law.

  14. Let’s be honest he was not dancing for the alien status…he was dancing because the judge said he gets to keep getting the federal (read tax payer) money. My question would be how much is going into his pocket? We need a congressional law making crossing our border illegally be a felony not a misdemeanor. (n. a lesser crime punishable by a fine and/or county jail time for up to one year.)However that mayor and I also think the judge as his accomplice are guilty of violation of a federal law….Federal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii) and this part of the law Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.

  15. Perhaps everyone should read this report and you will know why so many want to keep the illegal flow going…
    According to a study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the annual cost to taxpayers at the federal, state and local levels is $116 billion.

    The costs examined are those associated with the 12.5 million illegal immigrants and the 4.2 million citizen children of the illegal immigrants.

    The comprehensive report looked at many different areas that end up costing taxpayers money. According to the FAIR Study:
    The report, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers,” examines the cost of illegal immigration through a detailed analysis of federal, state and local programs that are available to the nation’s illegal immigrant population, their U.S.-born children, or accessed via fraud. The study tallies the impact on education, medical, justice/enforcement, welfare and other government programs. The report notes that the $116 billion cost of illegal immigration falls on state and local taxpayers disproportionately – by a ratio of roughly 2 to 1 – with state and local expenditures totaling $88.9 billion and Federal expenditures totaling $45.8 billion, with only approximately $19 billion recouped in taxes.
    The amount of taxes paid by the illegal immigrants that would help offset their cost to taxpayers was also examined by FAIR:
    The report also tallies the estimated taxes paid by the estimated 7 million illegal immigrants in the workforce, estimating that 35 percent of them are operating in the underground economy and noting that these workers have no payroll taxes deducted from their earnings. The study finds that taxes paid by illegal immigrants are five times as likely to wind up in federal coffers than in state and local treasuries. Total taxes paid to the federal government by illegal immigrants totaled $15.4 billion, with state and local governments receiving approximately $3.5 billion, even though these entities bear a disproportionate share of the burden.
    Illegal immigration has always been an issue in this country, but the new findings by FAIR show that the need for reform is immediate.
