Los Angeles Mayor Eric
Garcetti’s campaign traded barbs with mayoral challenger (and fellow Democrat)
Mitchell Schwartz last week over the city’s year-over-year rising violent crime
During a Northridge East Neighborhood Council candidate forum,
Schwartz accused Garcetti of concealing rising crime statistics by not holding
an annual news conference on them at the end of the year, according totheLos Angeles Daily News.
Garcetti spokesman Yusef Robb slammed Schwartz’s “conspiracy theory” as he
tried to explain away the lack of news conference as a scheduling matter. He
went on to claim that L.A. crime is at “historic lows” and blamed the state for
failures associated with prison sentence reductions under 2014’s Proposition
Violent crime in Los Angeles was up 10 percent in 2016 from
2015, according to theDaily
News, which noted that the crime statistics were quietly
rolled out on the police department’s website. In prior years the statistics
were announced jointly and very publicly by the mayor and chief of police.
Schwartz has been campaigning
on his goal to add 2,500 police officers to the city’s police department,
according to the report.
Another mayoral challenger,
Paul Amori, piled on the criticism of Garcetti, saying that “crime is up
massively” under Garcetti’s watch, though he didn’t blame Garcetti alone.
This week, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer highlighted San
Diego’s year-over-year decrease in violent crime while noting in astatementthat
violent crime in Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio and Dallas had higher rates.
In January, Garcetti spent several daysfundraisingin
Chicago, Washington D.C and New York for his re-election bid. Earlier the same
month, former Vice President Joe Biden appeared at a fundraiser for Garcetti in
In early February, Garcetti took time toappearon
MSNBC, stating that if Los Angeles police were enforcing immigration law, they
couldn’t be out solving crimes. Garcetti has repeatedly criticized President
Donald Trump’s plans to enforce immigration law and warnings that sanctuary
cities face losing federal dollars.
Aides to Garcetti said that
on March 3 Garcetti and Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck will roll out a
“public safety initiative.”
Garcetti has also been the
target of protests by Black Lives Matter activists, who President Trump and
other critics have blamed for making the tasks facing police in inner cities

The same day that DHSissued its new guidelinesregarding Immigration law enforcement, Tom Dart, the Sheriff of Cook County, IL; home of the City of Chicago, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the nation’s first Mayoral Sanctuary Policy, stated he has “no interest” in joining federal immigration efforts. As if county sheriffs across the nation can pick and choose which federal laws they will, and will not, follow.
This isnothing new for Chicago, home of the first official mayor-issued sanctuary policy. Since 1985 Chicago has openly defied federal Immigration law; an interesting trend since no other area of federal law is defied as aggressively as immigration. Cara Smith, the policy chief for Sheriff Tom Dart, stated “We have not been approached nor would we be interested in participating in this program.” Then added, “Our focus is and will remain on addressing violence in the city.” Smith’s statements were reported by the ChicagoTribune. This comment would be
The city of Chicago is entirely contained within Cook County. The county has authored some of the nation’s most outrageously illegal anti-immigration law policies. On September 30, 2003, the Cook County Commission’s Committee on Finance, led by Chairman Bill Daley (a brother of Mayor Daley) pass an ordinance declaring the Mexican “matricula consular” card a valid form of ID in Cook County. Then on March 15, 2006, Cook County Commissioner Roberto Maldonado introduced a resolution, which passed, resolving to fight HR 4437, a bill introduced in the U.S. Senate declaring illegal immigration a felony. Then onSept. 7, 2006Maldonado sponsored another resolution declaring Cook County a “sanctuary county” for immigrants. Conveniently leaving out the word “illegal.” before immigrants. Then onApril 30, 2007Maldonado sponsored a resolution to declare Cook County a “Fair and Equal County for Immigrants.”
“Fair and Equal County for Immigrants.”

Bill Daley was Chairman of the Cook County Financial committee when they announced in 2004 that they would defy Federal law.
President Obama joined the rebellion against federal law when he sued Arizona over its state law,SB 1070, in 2012. TheChicago Public School systemhas also joined the movement to flout federal law: it issued memos to school principals not to allow immigration officials in schools without a warrant. It’s not surprising that given this defiance by its law enforcement and public school system, Hispanics in the city feel that they are above the law. Clearly, the battle lines have been drawn, and Chicago is the first big city to flout president Trump’s new effort to enforce existing immigration law, just as its mayor was the first to declare Chicago a sanctuary city.
The Democrat Party of the U.S. hasa long historyof manipulating “persons of color” going back two hundred years to the days of John Calhoun. In the 1820s, southern white slave owners began to rebel against the movement to abolish slavery, and warned that they would not respect the laws of new states which declared that slaves who traveled there would be free. This hostility toward the human rights of African Americans ultimately led to the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, but defiant Democrats refused to acknowledge equality for persons of color and fought their right to vote.
The newest group of “persons of color” is the Hispanic group. Before 1970 Hispanic numbers in the U.S. were so low that the 1970 Census did not even list “Hispanic” as an ethnic category. In 1979 Los Angeles began the movement to encourage the settlement of illegal immigrants to the city, and in 1985 Chicago became the first big cityto openly proclaim, through Executive Order 85-1 issued by its Mayor Harold Washington, that residents of the city
would be given city services and
employment opportunities regardless of
Of course, the power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization” is given by the Constitution only to Congress, not to Chicago or Cook County. But in the tradition of the manipulation of minorities Chicago and other big cities started up what I have called “Racism Version 2.0” by establishing themselves as sanctuary cities for Hispanic residents.
Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and other cities have absolutely no legal authority with regard to immigration law, yet they have all flouted Federal law and sought to carve out illegal immigrants as a group over which they have absolute control. And they have placed them in highly segregated neighborhoods, just as they have herded blacks into highly segregated areas, and with the promises
of benefits to single mothers, low income
housing, and food stamps, confining them to
lives of poverty and desperation ever since
the early 1930s.
This defiance was to be expected. Chicago has spawned defiance of federal immigration law for forty years. It will be interesting to see how President Trump reacts to this. Cook County’s Sheriff Dart has definitely drawn a line in the sand, and dared Trump to do anything about it. Should Trump refuse to act and allow Chicago to defy the rule of Federal law, then other sanctuary cities will follow.
Why Chicago promotes illegal immigration and shields immigrants from federal law enforcement is not difficult to understand. It’s all about political power and money. In the 1982 gubernatorial election an FBI investigation found that over 80,000 illegal aliensillegally voted. And today each person in the state of Illinois brings in $4,000 worth of Federal block grant money. This, in addition to the DACA money, public housing, WIC food stamp program, school lunch, ESL (English as a second language) and dozens of other programs. Illinois, Cook County and the city of Chicago are now all heavily dependent on the Hispanic illegal immigrant population as a source of local, state and federal benefit dollars. It’s not just Hispanics who are illegal but other nationalities as well: Chicago has a large recently arrived Polish immigrant population as well as those from southeastern Europe who came as refugees after the Bosnian war.
The CPS system is heavily dependent upon federal dollars for its operating expenses. Nevertheless, the CPS memo to principals clearly stated its position: “To be very clear, CPSdoes not provideassistance to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law.”
The Chicago Public School system has no legal authority to enforce, or deny enforcement, of Federal immigration law. Not since the Little Rock, Arkansas school system defied segregation orders in the 1950s have public schools open defied federal government law enforcement directives.
If Cook County Sheriff Dart can refuse to cooperate with federal law, why doesn’t he refuse to evict people from their homes, after their home is sold for nonpayment of property taxes? Wouldn’t that help those in need?
Among other issues, this proves that government, not big business, is behind the illegal immigration movement. Government, not big business, is openly defying Federal law enforcement DHS policy in Cook County, Illinois.
