Sanctuary Sickness

Legislation signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis makes it more difficult for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to apprehend suspected illegal immigrants.

Polis signed House Bill 1124 on Tuesday. The new law bars local law enforcement from arresting or detaining a suspected illegal alien on the basis of an ICE request.

The legislation also prohibits officers from providing a suspected illegal immigrant’s personal information to ICE, and it requires Colorado police to read illegals their Miranda rights when coordinating an ICE interview.

Governor Polis needs to take a tour of San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon is living a nightmare right now in California.

“I walked to work this morning in San Francisco and on my way I had to avoid human waste, needles, homeless people, etc.,” Dhillon told The Todd Starnes Radio Show. “Our one beautiful city has really become marred by this issue, and Los Angeles is even worse.”

Is it ever. As reported on The Todd Starnes Show, Los Angeles is mired in problems involving rats, parks filled with drug needles, and growing homeless populations. Monday, Dr. Drew Pinsky told the program that it is likely that the City of Angels could see a plague caused by the rats.

“What we hear from liberals and across California is that it is compassionate to allow people to live in this way, but first of all it’s not compassionate for them to live in squalor and disease, or for us as a society to allow that,” said Dhillon, who also serves on the Trump 2020 Advisory Council. “Secondly, it is not compassionate to the people who are not living on the street to be subjected to risk of disease and worse.”

Dhillon considers it a critical mass situation.

“Interestingly, here in San Francisco, where there was a proposal by the mayor to house some of the homeless on our beautiful Embarcadero pier, the liberals who live near it are up in arms,” she added. “They love the idea of being compassionate to the homeless, until it’s in their backyard.”  (emphasis added)

“Senator Kamala Harris was the district attorney here,” said Dhillon. “Senator Dianne Feinstein and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi all live in my district.”

In Los Angeles “We had an outbreak of typhoid fever at the end of last week,” Dr. Drew Pinsky told The Todd Starnes Show. “The (police) precinct near Skid Row is overrun with rats and rat droppings.”

While you may be new to this story, it didn’t happen overnight. Dr. Pinsky actually predicted the typhus epidemic last summer, and he thinks it’s going to be worse this summer.

“The city is literally saying Oh, typhus is just a mild illness, what are you getting upset about? but my son had it, and it’s killing people,” the doctor bemoaned. “I talked to a Bubonic plague expert last week who said it’s inevitable that a plague is the next thing we will see.”

Los Angeles has been controlled by Democrats for decades and they have simply refused to address the crisis unfolding on streets and sidewalks, Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez wrote.

“Now city streets are treated like dumpsters, or even toilets — on Thursday, the 1600 block of Santee Street was cordoned off after someone dumped a fat load of poop in the street. I’m not sure when any of this became the norm, but it must have something to do with the knowledge that you can get away with it. Every time sanitation crews knock down one mess, another dumpsite springs up nearby,” Lopez wrote in a recent column. 

“The last plague in this country was in Los Angeles in the 1920’s,” Dr. Drew said. “To control that outbreak, they had to kill 2 million rats, (but) we have many, many more rats than two million presently.”

Dr. Drew went on to say that if measles gets into the homeless population, the result is going to be terrible.

“If you’re going to bring your child to a park, you have to bring a rake to rake up all the needles,” Dr. Drew prescribed. “It’s out of control!”


The fact is before illegal immigration became a crisis (and it IS a crisis) and sanctuary states, counties, and cities appeared, measles had been 99.9 percent eradicated in the United States.  Now not only measles outbreaks are occurring, but typhus, tuberculous, hepatitis, chicken pox, cholera, dengue fever, tuberculosis, leprosy, measles, malaria, meningococcal diseases, hemorrhagic fevers, HIV/AIDS, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, trichinellosis, whooping cough, and many fungal and parasitic infections are all being carried into the United States across our southern borders.

In 2014 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned its own workers to expect a rise in tuberculosis and other infectious diseases in the refugees and detention centers for illegals.

But CDC, charged with protecting Americans from spread of serious disease, did not make this information public. Thus, the American public was unaware of the disease danger lurking in their communities and schools.

There is a saying “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

Whatever the intention of politicians who create “sanctuary” states, counties, and cities, they are way beyond misguided.  If this country continues to allow the uncontrolled entrance of immigrants across our southern borders (or any other border), we’ll all be wearing surgical masks (if not haz-mat suits) to go out in public.

And remember, people who say “this country was built by immigrants” are wrong:

LEGAL IMMIGRANTS helped make this country great – after they became Americans.
