Thanks for Prohibiting Sanctuary Colleges in Georgia

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, May 5, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

What a relief it was when H.B. 37 passed this session. It’s a ray of hope for law-abiding citizens who believe that national boundaries should be respected and laws should be enforced against violators. Today, I applaud Representative Earl Ehrhart, who introduced H.B. 37, and Representatives England, Morris, Williams and Petrea who co-signed it. Also, I want to thank the 112 House members and 37 senators that voted for it. Thanks to them, the law against illegal entry into the United States has more teeth in it in Georgia.

While that doesn’t mean illegal aliens will be sent back home, Representative Ehrhart’s bill prohibits sanctuary policies in private colleges and universities and punishes them for adopting a regulation, rule, policy, or practice that gives safe space for students who are here illegally. Since crossing the border is illegal, individuals, agencies and organizations are encouraging illegal behavior if they protect illegals from federal and state immigration laws.

Because a Georgia county, reportedly, harbors illegal aliens, Georgia is listed among states that provide sanctuary, despite a 2016 state law that made it illegal for publicly-funded programs and local governments to provide sanctuary. The 2016 law applies to state colleges and universities because they are publicly funded by taxes, but it does not apply to private institutions. So, H.B. 37 corrected that by prohibiting sanctuary policies in private colleges and universities, as well. Continue reading

Will Georgia allow sanctuary colleges?

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, January 27, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

In case you don’t know, Georgia is listed among states that provide “sanctuary” for illegal aliens. Sanctuary is the term for safe spaces, such as towns or counties, that protect illegal aliens from federal law enforcement officers whose job is to locate, retain, and deport those here illegally, including illegals who commit crimes after they get here.

Sanctuary is provided in defiance of federal law when local government jurisdictions pass ordinances or policies or regulations that require local law enforcement to look the other way when they have knowledge of or encounter illegal aliens.

In addition, the refugee resettlement movement is encouraged, enhanced, and assisted by various religious organizations and charities that are paid per capita to defy federal immigration law and act on personal compassion rather than honor the requirements of our Constitution and laws.

For years, local governments in major cities and counties have given sanctuary to illegal aliens, but, currently, students and faculty at a number of colleges and universities nationwide have demanded that administrators declare their campuses to be sanctuaries. In response, certain colleges and universities, that should be stalwart bastions of truth, law and order, are embracing the sanctuary movement. Continue reading

Electoral College Equalizes Power of Voters in All States

“Using Census data, we’ve¹ figured out that half of the United States population is clustered in just the 146 biggest counties out of over 3000. Here’s the map, with said counties shaded in. Below the map is the list¹ of all the counties,
so you can see if you live in one of them.”

Georgia Statistics: According to the latest figures available, the total population of Georgia is 9,687,653, which is almost equally divided among males (4,729,171) and females (4,958,482). The blue sections below identify the 146 most populace counties in the U.S., which includes four Georgia counties with the following residency: Fulton, 1,010,562; Gwinnett, 895,832; Cobb, 741,334; and DeKalb, 734,871. Taliaferro County has the fewest residents with 1,639.

NPV vs. Electoral College. Consider this half-and-half fact: The 146 blue counties outlined below include half of the population in the U.S. Over 2,854 gray counties are home to half of the U.S. population. The Electoral College provides voting equality for each half.

340 Sanctuary “Cities”

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, April 15, 2016 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Under local and federal laws, if you and I interfere with the capture of fugitives or conceal their location or conspire to break the law, we could be charged with aiding and abetting criminals or obstructing justice or conspiring to break the law. We, certainly, would NOT be getting government grants for sheltering proven criminals.

The sheltering system I’m talking about is the decades-old system of “sanctuary cities.” They may be cities or counties or local governments that shield illegal aliens from federal immigration laws, and refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Proponents of sanctuary cities claim they protect immigrant rights, but illegal aliens are not immigrants. An immigrant is a person who enters the U.S. legally, maintains legal presence and does not overstay a visa. Illegal aliens are those who enter the U.S. illegally or do not leave when their visa expires.

Congress passed a law against illegal sanctuary in 1996. That federal law requires local governments to cooperate with ICE agents. But counties and communities that disagree with the law continue to adopt “sanctuary” policies that shield illegal aliens. Currently, illegal alien offenders are being sheltered in 340 locations across America. Continue reading
