It’s no secret that all 2020 Democratic candidates for president want to protect those who come to the U.S. illegally. They all oppose the wall, support sanctuary cities, and want to give free healthcare to illegal aliens. But one candidate has gone beyond all this. Mayor Pete instituted a plan in his town that made sure ICE could never find criminal aliens.
Pete Buttigieg is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana. He’s also running for president. Mayor Pete’s got his work cut out for him, elbowing for attention among a crowded pack of over 20 Democratic candidates.
He’s also got some other problems. The town of South Bend isn’t too happy with him. Reports indicate the police force of South Bend is falling apart. Many cops have left, outraged over the mayor’s treatment. Some have said the town is becoming the wild west, with so few cops around to protect citizens.
That’s only the beginning. Mayor Peter is under fire after the FBI raided a South Bend utility office recently. Citizens frequently complained about the corruption within the local government. Mayor Pete has tried to distance himself from the scandal, even though he appointed many of the staff currently under investigation.
Now he has a bigger problem. Not only does Buttigieg support protecting illegal aliens from ICE apprehensions, but he actually created a system that calls illegals in his town. The system would warn them of impending ICE action.
South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg reportedly helped create an alert system that would notify families if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided his residents’ homes or businesses.
The “phone tree,” according to The Daily Beast on Wednesday, was one of several actions Buttigieg took to protect illegal immigrants in his town. Phone trees consist of an automated calling system that helps spread messages quickly and efficiently.
Those would presumably help alert immigrants to the type of surprise raids that resulted in nearly 700 arrests in Mississippi. [Source: Fox News]
Can you imagine a mayor warning drug dealers that cops are about to arrest them? Yet Mayor Pete created an automated system that warned illegal aliens when ICE was coming to raid their homes or offices.
Buttigieg went out of his way to aid people who are breaking the law. He didn’t bother coming up with a system to help American citizens when they’re in need. Nope, he created a phone system to give illegals a heads up so they can avoid ICE raids.
And people scoff when we say Democrats are lawless.
Worse than that, the system was a part of a bigger program to empower illegal immigrants in South Bend.
His approach to immigration came under legal scrutiny when Judicial Watch, a right-leaning organization, sued the city over a “Community Resident Card” program that Buttigieg reportedly developed with the help of La Casa, a left-wing, pro-immigration group.
The program allowed residents to open bank accounts, fill prescriptions, and use public services without fear that authorities would find out their immigration status. Buttigieg specifically partnered with local businesses on the program and directed utilities and other services to accept the cards as a valid form of identification. [Source: Fox News]
Let me guess what this resident card also lets illegals do… hmm, how about it lets them vote, right?
That’s what this is all about. Mayor Pete and the rest of the 2020 Democrats want—need—illegal aliens voting for them. That’s why they are bending over backward to help people who shouldn’t even be in this country.
Mayor Pete doesn’t even care about the needs and concerns of real Americans. He is willing to spend trillions of our tax dollars to pay for the healthcare of non-citizens. People who don’t even pay taxes.
His town protects criminal aliens from deportation. If you’re an American in South Bend, you’re thrown to the wolves. But if you’re an illegal? He practically rolls out the red carpet. Despicable.
But this is the Democratic Party in 2019. They care more about the well-being of outsiders. They’d rather have the votes of non-Americans, than bother to put Americans first.
And they wonder why their party is dying?
