We need to get tough on crime. Government’s first and foremost obligation is to protect its citizens. Recent legislation passed by our liberal legislature has reduced penalties for crimes and allowed early release of prisoners. This has caused an increase in crime. Sanctuary legislation has also tied law enforcements hands from cooperating with Federal Agents by forbidding them to turn over criminal illegal aliens to ICE for deportation, when released from jail. What this does is force ICE to detain every illegal alien found at a residence or business as they are searching for the illegal criminal that police are no longer turning over to ICE. We need to support our law enforcement officers and give them the tools and authority to do their jobs correctly.
