Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf can be added to a growing list of leftists who have blood on their hands after using their office for political activism. From Fox News:
Three illegal immigrants, who avoided capture after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf blew the whistle on a raid by federal immigration authorities last month, have since been re-arrested for new crimes including robbery and spousal abuse, ICE officials said.
These crimes could have been prevented with functioning immigration laws, and active officials who actually – radical suggestion these days, apparently – uphold existing laws. The left is taking it upon itself to forego the democratic process of changing laws they disagree with and are simply picking and choosing which laws to follow and which to ignore.
Imagine this the other way around: a Democratic president passing a full pardon for all illegals, and a right-wing mayor deciding to deport them anyway. Or a Democratic president passing full gun control, and right-wing mayors deciding not to prosecute gun owners, and even warning them about the gun grabbers coming to town. Both would be inconceivable.
But Libby Schaaf bears responsibility for these robberies and cases of abuse. They could have been prevented, just like the murder of Kate Steinle could have been prevented. And just like the murders of Lina Bolaños and Richard Field could have been prevented.
The left doesn’t care about justice. The left doesn’t care about innocent people being harmed. The left only cares about its ideology – no amount of crime victims will stand in its way.
