Mayor Expected to Sign Order Curtailing Police-ICE Collaboration

Julie Shaw, Philly, April 15, 2014

Mayor Nutter is expected to sign an executive order tomorrow that will significantly limit collaboration between Philadelphia police and federal immigration authorities.

The order is expected to preclude police from honoring detainer requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement except in cases where a person is convicted of a first- or second-degree felony involving violence, and only when ICE secures a warrant to support the detainer.


ICE detainers or “holds” are requests by federal immigration authorities for police to hold a person who was detained for an alleged crime for up to an additional 48 hours. That would allow ICE to take the person–if suspected of being an undocumented immigrant or a noncitizen–into their custody for possible deportation.

Immigrant-rights advocates, who have worked for years to end ICE holds, hailed the expected signing as a victory. “Historic Signing Ceremony to End ICE Holds!” exclaimed a headline yesterday in an email by the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia announcing tomorrow’s signing event.

    And by doing so he is stupidly creating another facet of crime and violence to add to his already black crisis that is out-of-control and getting worse every month.

    And he is also creating a situation where the ongoing black vs Hispanic turmoil will get even worse, just as it has in California.

    Is this just one more reason black societies fail so miserably?

      No, but it is one of the reasons why liberalism is a mental disorder.

    I guarantee that Nutter did this either on the orders of Obozo or to please his black master and idol. This was calculated for an election year so Pennsylvania will have more Democrat voters in the form of brown, welfare seeking mestizos and other third world people.

      No! What will happen it that your President will order the Federal cops to enforce Federal Immigration orders. Just as his predecessors order the Fererals to enforce Federal Integration in the 1950’s and 60’s.

  • Mayor Nutter. LOL. Describes this loon perfectly. Would his first name be Shitavious?

    So when can we expect a recall vote to remove Mayor Nutjob from office?

    Yeah, that’s what I thought.

      Never, he’s black.

    He couldn’t possibly have a more appropriate name.

    So how do you make a black run city like Killadelphia worse? Go ahead and ad a sprinkling of illegal alien invaders and gang members. Are you a brown violent felon? Have you committed identity theft? Do you like welfare? Interested in third world living conditions masked by first world architecture? Come to Philly, land of the Nutter.

    Actually, this type of thing could give us an opportunity. It shows that flouting the law can be done with impunity. Now if a White politician sees it, he may start thinking he can do similar things, that may actually benefit White people (stranger things have happened).

    • John R

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but it doesn’t show that at all. Quite the contrary: It shows that certain laws are not really expected to be enforced (like illegal immigration) but others, like school desegregation, for example, will be vigorously enforced.

      • Tom Mixx

        I think we all understand that. But it won’t stop a good American Patriot from throwing it back in their face.

        • John R

          I hope you are right, man!

    The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stories of tonights news all have the underlying goal to further the invasion/immigration reform bill.

  • evilsandmich

    Dumping criminals back out onto the streets? Apparently the secret to urban success, it having worked out so great for places like New Orleans and Detroit.

  • Puggg

    Why worry? Even when the black and whites in Philly told ICE that they had an illegal in tow, it’s not as if ICE was ever going to do anything to him or her.

    We have become a nation not of laws, and not even of men, but of chaos. You can not have a functioning society unless there are rules, laws and even manners that are respected and followed, voluntarily, by the majority of society. When lawbreakers run free and unimpeded we are pretty much done.

  • Sounds like a good reason to stop dealing with Philly-based companies. I do more mail-order than in-person shopping, and Philadelphia just made my s***-list.

    When American cities willfully ignore federal immigration law, those cities are celebrated by the media as Safe Harbor cities and the Feds do not go after that city. When American states willfully ignore federal law regarding gay “rights”, those states are derided in the media and the Feds go after those states with a vengeance. The Feds on care about enforcing federal law which fits the current and future federal agenda.

    I heard this story on the news the other day, and I was, understandably outraged, as I am sure most on here are. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: What part of “in this country illegally” don’t people understand? Really, I appreciate that there are issues where people legitimately have different points of view, but on this issue, I don’t even understand why there is even a debate. The very fact that we have to even argue it is scary. It shows how blatantly anti-White our society has become. Everything we have is up for grabs.

    Considering the propensity for repeat offending it would seem in the city’s economic interest to want to see the petty criminals removed before they graduate into a more dangerous class.

    Philadelphia is become a total sh!thole
