NYPD Union Official Criticizes Mayor De Blasio For His Pro-Illegal Stance

(from Conservative Tribune in part)

President Donald Trump followed through on a campaign promise and within the first few days of being in office issued an executive order threatening to cut off federal funding to cities that didn’t revoke their “sanctuary city” stance.

While some cities have followed Trump’s order, many major cites, like New York City, have become defiant, vowing to never give up their “sanctuary city” status and refusing to cooperate with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents seeking to deport criminal illegals.

Now, a union that represents the Big Apple’s beleaguered cops is firing back.

In a radio interview this week, Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City, blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill for being unwilling to work with the federal authorities, The New York Daily News reported.

“Make no mistake about it, the members of law enforcement in the NYPD want to cooperate with ICE. I speak to cops every day — they want to cooperate with ICE, they want to work with fellow law enforcement agents,” Mullins said Sunday on 970-AM’s “The Cats Roundtable,” with host John Catsimatidis.

“There is a moral obligation, and as the chief law enforcement officer of the city, you yourself have to be able to follow the direction of law. We don’t get to participate in the laws that we want,” Mullins said. “That’s total lunacy.”

Newsday reported that Mullins claimed that de Blasio was playing politics because it is an election year, and de Blasio thinks taking the pro-illegal side will help him win.

De Blasio, one of a number of leftist mayors who support (among other ridiculous things) sanctuary cities, finally has bit off more than he can chew.

Hopefully, the legal electorate is listening.

And enough of the illegal electorate will stay away from the polls!

  1. I am greatly encouraged to see the societal pendulum swinging back toward support of the rule of law, and away from those who – like the previous Administration – would subvert or ignore it.

  2. Yep. Either change the law you don’t like or follow it. It doesn’t have “optional” anywhere I can find.
    Picking and choosing based on which way the political winds blow is BS.

    • Of course, most folks obey laws they like and disobey those they don’t.
      Speed over posted limits? Sometimes.
      Carry everywhere? Unless there are magnatometers.
      One would hope the Constabulary would be more strict.
