Sanctuary Cities – Red Tape
The sanctuary city mess – What really happens when cities choose politically correct politics over safety
What’s more important: promoting leftist social causes or protecting American lives? The answer is obvious. But unfortunately, some cities in the United States – such as Lawrence, Mass. – have chosen politically correct politics over the safety of their residents.
By choosing to implement “sanctuary city” policies that prevent the federal government from detaining and deporting illegal immigrants accused or convicted of crimes, these cities have opted to keep dangerous people in their communities – which in turn helps perpetuate the ongoing opioid epidemic.
The truth about crime, illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities
I am a former Spanish speaking career detective who investigated violent crimes within the Hispanic and other ethnic immigrant communities.
I am also a forensic criminologist who is a subject matter expert in violent crime who advocates for facts and evidence. Here are some verified crime facts and statistics with you so that you will know the truth about the precarious relationship between violent crime and illegal immigrants.
As Americans, we should only care about three things: (1) are the immigrants in the U.S. illegally; (2) have they committed violent crimes predominantly against U.S. citizens; and (3) had these criminals not been in our country illegally, these crimes, the victimization of our citizens and the costs of their crimes borne by American taxpayers could have been completely avoided.
ICBC in crisis: Once-lauded auto insurer is a mess, on ‘path to insolvency’
British Columbia’s once-celebrated public auto insurer has become a financial train wreck, its critics say, as studies into the beleaguered Crown corporation call for dramatic rate hikes and drastic structural changes to save it from ruin.
But while everyone appears to agree the system is broken, there is disagreement over how the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia went off the rails in the first place and what must be done to fix it.
The crisis at ICBC is shaping up to be the first major financial hurdle for B.C.’s new NDP government.
Attorney General David Eby, who is also the minister responsible for ICBC, blames the previous Liberal government for problems at the corporation.
Canada’s gun laws aren’t saving lives — they’re just making them more complicated
If I were a more daring person, dinner with my parents last week could have cost me jail time.
No, I’m not talking about a family meal devolving to blows before the dessert course, but rather a bizarre provision of the law that impacts hundreds of thousands of Canadians — including me.
I needed to take my handgun to the gunsmith last week for a minor maintenance issue, dropping it off before work with the plan of picking it up afterwards.
The Red Tape Conundrum
It may well be the biggest bogeyman in business—bigger, perhaps, than even taxes: We’re talking, of course, about red tape. The idea that burdensome and overly complicated government regulation is strangling growth is almost as old as commerce itself. But right now the hue and cry from the business community is louder than at just about any time in recent memory.
Andrew Scheer says 2019 election represents choice between ‘free or unfree’ Canada
The choice, Scheer told the Manning Networking Conference in his first major speech to conservatives since becoming leader last May, won’t be between left and right.
“It’s now a question about being free or unfree,” said Scheer, seeking to finally define himself – and redefine his party – as a viable choice for voters 20 months from now.
Why Conservatives Find Life More Meaningful Than Liberals
Polarization has become so severe that what news you read, who you marry, and what kind of car you drive is connected to your political persuasion. And so is, it turns out, whether you see the point in literally anything.
In a new study of people in 16 different countries, researchers from the University of Southern California and the University of Utah found that conservatives reported feeling there was more meaning and purpose in life than liberals did.
