(National Sentinel) Immigration Enforcement: Left-wing extremist governors continue to war with the Trump administration over the latter’s efforts to enforce all immigration laws, as evidenced by an executive order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York on Wednesday.
The order demands that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents “cease and desist” their “unconstitutional” enforcement actions after a raid in New York City recently, which netted hundreds of illegal aliens, many of them criminals.
“I am issuing a cease and desist letter to ICE to demand the immediate stop of their reckless and unconstitutional enforcement actions,” Cuomo said in a tweet containing video of a press conference in which he announced his action.
Continuing, Cuomo also tweeted, “I am also issuing an Executive Order prohibiting ICE arrests in state facilities and prohibiting state agencies from inquiring about immigration status.”
Last week ICE was forced to take enforcement actions on its own after the NYPD refused to cooperate since Mayor Bill DeBlasio has declared New York City to be a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens.
In a six-day operation called “Operation Keep Safe,” agents made 225 arrests, including 180 who had been convicted of various crimes.
According to an ICE press release, “more than 80 had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed from the United States and returned illegally.”
Cuomo’s threat and order infuriated one of the state’s elected leaders, U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican.
“This guy is out of control. King Cuomo actually believes that the law is whatever he says it is. No constitution, legislature or statute will ever take precedence over this man’s political ambitions,” he tweeted in response to the governor.
