Atlanta late to join 'sanctuary city' resistance

ICE arrests 1The mayor of Atlanta is the latest illegal alien apologist to put American citizens at risk, an immigration watchdog group is warning.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms recently signed an executive order directing the Atlanta City Detention Center to stop accepting detainees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The jail had been receiving the detainees under an agreement with the U.S. Marshals Service.

Bottoms, who is serving her first term as mayor, called current national immigration policies "inhumane."

President Donald Trump and others have condemned such action in "sanctuary cities," where liberal officer holders are defiantly refusing to allow cooperation with ICE and hence refuse to cooperate with federal immigration laws.

The "sanctuary" label even applies to the state of California, home of the largest population of illegals in the U.S., where a state law forbids counties and municipalities from cooperating with ICE and federal laws. 

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says the Atlanta mayor was elected to protect the people of Atlanta.

"And what [Bottoms] is saying is her higher priority is to protect criminal aliens in Atlanta," Mehlman claims, "and if releasing them out on to the streets, and if it results in them committing other crimes, that's a price she's willing to pay."
