In a stunning display of liberal idiocy, a Texas council member is encouraging illegal immigrants to not comply with federal immigration officials. Bear in mind that the people being encouraged to resist are not legal residents of this country and shouldn’t even be here in the first place.
Gregorio Casar, a member of the City Council in Austin, Texas, has published an info-graphic that instructs illegal immigrants exactly how to resist the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers when they come to legally deport them from the country. It also describes how to use the laws of America to prevent such deportation, but it is important to note that these immigrants are not citizens of America. Therefore, their rights are not protected by the U.S. Constitution or the laws of this country by the nature of their illegal status.
Casar posted the info-graphic on Facebook under the guise of addressing concerns over “potential raids of our communities by Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” which are rumored to occur this week. He did admit that he was unable to confirm whether the rumored raids are actually taking place, but warned that “such assaults on our community are imminent given the anti-immigrant hate of our federal administration.”
An alternate image was also posted in Spanish for anybody not able to read English.
“Trump and his allies will do everything they can to divide Americans, invoke fear in vulnerable neighborhoods, and demonize an entire community of people,” Casar claimed. “For this reason, we are sharing know-your-rights materials with our constituents, and posting them here.”
City of Austin leaders have already been under pressure from both state and federal officials over the sanctuary city policy enforced by a Travis County sheriff, who refused to comply with the recent immigration orders.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has also strongly advocated holding local officials accountable for refusing to enforce immigration policies.
The governor’s latest efforts include the cancellation of $1.5 million in state funding to the Travis county sheriff’s office, and support for a new law (SB 4) which would issue “stiff penalties” to “Sanctuary cities.”

The people being scrutinized are not just those in the country illegally, but those that have also gained criminal records while being here. Who in their right mind would be against throwing a known thug of any color out of America given they weren’t supposed to be inside our borders anyway? Even the order written by Trump points out this simple fact, “Among those who illegally enter are those who seek to harm Americans through acts of terror or criminal conduct.”
There are not many countries in the world that allow foreigners to simply stroll across their border without being interrogated and verified that they are in fact who they say they are. With Barrack Obama out of office, the days where anyone could simply walk into our country are over.
