RE: COMPLAINT AND REQUEST FOR AN IMMEDIATE FEDERAL INVESTIGATION OF SANCTUARY STATES, COUNTIES AND CITIES WHO ARE IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF 18 USC P. 1701.

I, the undersigned, hereby charge the following government office holders in the stated jurisdictions, for open, overt, flagrant and notorious violation of Federal Statute 18 USC P. 1701, for harboring and providing sanctuary to illegal immigrant criminals and violators of federal law, wherein said law states:

"Whoever harbors or conceals any person for whose arrest a warrant or process has been issued under the provisions of any law of the United States, so as to prevent his discovery and arrest, after notice or knowledge of the fact that a warrant or process has been issued for the apprehension of such person, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; except that if the warrant or process issued on a charge of felony, or after conviction of such person of any offense, the punishment shall be a fine under this title, or imprisonment for not more than five years, or both."

and I further charge that said office holders are "principals" in these violations pursuant to 18 USC, Section 2, wherein it states that:

(a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.

(b) Whoever willfully causes an act to be done which if directly performed by him or another would be an offense against the United States, is punishable as a principal.

... and as such "principals", are personally liable for said violations.

Government Office Holders: Governor, County Executives, Mayors, Prosecuting Attorneys, Judges and Law Enforcement in the following jurisdictions:

State __________; Counties of: __________________
Cities: _______________________________________

BACKGROUND:

It's not just cities that are providing a safe haven for illegal alien lawbreakers that include aliens who have been deported, murderers, robbers, thieves, rapists, pimps, con artists, drug smugglers, human trafficking perpetrators and others of a deplorable nature, and yes, some non-criminal individuals and families. There are several states, as well as multiple counties in almost every state that defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with their sanctuary policies. About 300 jurisdictions in America have been identified by ICE as having a policy, or are non-cooperative when it comes to immigration enforcement. Many cities, like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York are in open defiance of federal immigration law, with their respective mayors publicly thumbing their collective noses at immigration authorities.

From specific sources we learned that from January 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015 these sanctuary jurisdictions rejected more than 17,000 detainers for illegal immigrants, 11,800 of which had a prior criminal history.

The illegal immigration problem is massive. One in four inmates in American prisons are illegal immigrants. In 2014, 36.7% of all felony convictions were illegal immigrants. This comes at a great cost to lawful Americans.

In open defiance of their mandated duties and swearing to uphold the law of the land, an official of the Department of Justice of the Obama Administration confirmed in 2010 that the agency would not take any action against cities, or other sanctuary jurisdictions, that defy the "Illegal Immigration and Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996." (Pub. Law 104-208)

Federal Law (8 USC 1227) describes in detail who is a deportable person and the list is lengthy.

But one of the provisions in the law "(2)(A)(i)(I)(II) "General Crimes" states that:

(i) Crimes of moral turpitude

Any alien who — (I) is convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude committed within five years (or 10 years in the case of an alien provided lawful permanent resident status under section 1255(j) of this title) after the date of admission, and (II) is convicted of a crime for which a sentence of one year or longer may be imposed, is deportable.

Moral Turpitude is a very broad term but has been defined in greater detail by court decisions and “refers generally to conduct that shocks the public conscience as being inherently base, vile, or depraved, contrary to the rules of morality and the duties owed between man and man, either one's fellow man, or society in general" and includes murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, rape, spousal abuse, child abuse, incest, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault, mayhem, animal fighting, theft, fraud, and conspiracy, or attempting to, or acting as an accessory to a crime.

In every sanctuary city, county and state in America there resides thousands of illegal immigrants who are guilty of moral turpitude under federal immigration law, as defined, and as such are deportable. In a flagrant, criminally negligent act, ICE released 86,288 illegal immigrant criminals into the general population from 2013 to 2015, according to ICE Director Sarah Saldana in written testimony to Congress.

When illegal immigrant criminals are released into the general population, or cross our sovereign borders illegally, they migrate to sanctuary cities, counties and states, where the criminals will be shielded from federal prosecution by the governor of the state, or mayor, the city or county council, prosecuting attorneys, judges and law enforcement, by specific written or verbal sanctuary policies.

ICE issues what are called detainers for illegal immigrants that are subject to deportation. Most if not all illegal immigrants are subject to deportation under 8 USC P. 1227, whether criminal or not. Under this statute, deportable persons are defined as:

"Any alien who is present in the United States in violation of this chapter or any other law of the United States, or whose nonimmigrant visa (or other documentation authorizing admission into the United States as a nonimmigrant) has been revoked under section 1201(i) of this title, is deportable."

One can safely conclude that anyone who has entered the U. S. illegally is deportable, unless they are seeking asylum for reasons covered under the law, subject to judicial review.

What seems to have gone unnoticed here is that the government office holders of these sanctuary states, counties and cities are guilty of harboring fugitives from justice and potential terrorists by their policies, written or verbal and are "principals" under 18 USC Section 2, making them personally liable for their actions.

Under the "harboring" statute, 18 USC P. 1071, a "process" would be construed as an ICE detainer. It is logical to assume that sanctuary city leaders, or local law enforcement, have been issued those detainers, or had knowledge of them and flagrantly ignored them. In fact an ICE "detainer" was issued to the Sheriff of San Francisco County for Kate Steinle's killer, which said Sheriff promptly released the illegal immigrant criminal, purposely ignoring the ICE detainer. Therefore, the Sheriff directly violated 18 USC 1071. The San Francisco city and county leaders indirectly violated the statute by establishing the policy. Each of them should be tried for criminally violating federal law and held personally liable for their complicity in Kate Steinle's death. San Francisco's sanctuary city policy was a direct contributing factor in her death.

As a result of the federal government's negligence to properly manage and enforce our immigration system and our borders, there are somewhere between 11,000,000 to 30,000,000 illegal aliens residing in America (no one knows for sure). Hundreds of thousands of those illegal aliens are dangerous criminals or terrorists, preying on lawful Americans and should be deported, or incarcerated. Sanctuary policies are also a threat to national security by shielding those terrorist.

Each American citizen is required to obey the law or face penalties, fines and even imprisonment for violation of the law, depending on the severity of the violation. If a taxpayer makes a mistake on his or her income tax return, or doesn't pay what the IRS thinks the taxpayer owes them, the IRS will be all over the taxpayer and it could take years to get the IRS off their back. Why isn't ICE just as relentless on illegal immigrants and illegal immigrant criminals as the IRS is on taxpayers?

In fact, why are sanctuary jurisdictions thumbing their noses at federal immigration law while the rest of us must obey the law? Why do not their sanctuary actions fly in the face of justice, fairness, equity and the law? Why are illegal aliens, especially criminal ones, above the law and are entitled to sanctuary, or a status superior to lawful Americans? Why is it OK for lawful Americans, hapless victims of criminal and non-criminal illegal aliens due to government negligence, be forced to pay for those same illegal aliens that are sucking up government benefits and committing the crimes? Why indeed!

In a nation of laws, if laws aren't enforced equally across the board, then there is no law, only injustice and eventually anarchy and chaos.


REQUEST FOR A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION:

For the foregoing reasons, I, the undersigned, respectfully request that the above named U. S. Attorney(s) open an immediate investigation into the overt and notorious law breaking by all government office holders of the herein named sanctuary states, counties and cities, that have established sanctuary policies, shielding illegal immigrant criminals and potential terrorists from federal prosecution, in violation of 18 USC P. 1071.

Respectfully,
