Thanks to Mayor Nutter (D-Phila) and liberal Councilman Jim Kenney (D-Phila), Philadelphia is now a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants. Mayor Nutter will sign an executive order stating that the Philadelphia Police Department will no longer honor ICE detainers placed on illegal immigrants who have been arrested. Even if the illegal immigrant is wanted by ICE for a violent crime Philadelphia will NOT honor their detainer. An ICE detainer will only be honored by Philadelphia if the illegal immigrant is a convicted felon and ICE presents an arrest warrant to the Philly PD.

Liberal Councilman Jim Kenny doesn’t want Philadelphia to honor any ICE detainers. Councilman Kenny would rather violent illegal immigrant criminals, walking the streets of Philadelphia. This just goes to prove once again that Democrats are lawless. They care more about the rights of illegal immigrant criminals, than the safety of law abiding Philadelphia citizens.
