As city mayors fight to protect illegal aliens living in their midst they are also passing laws to vilify American homeless
With the election of Donald Trump as the new President, mayors around the country who have designated their dominions as sanctuary cities are rushing to the media to tell the incoming President-Elect how they will fight to protect their law breaking foreigners. Â Yet perhaps what is even more disconcerting is how these same elected officials are now passing laws that make it illegal for people to actually aid Americans who are homeless, and are enforcing this while ignoring Federal laws that make it unlawful to provide aid to illegal aliens in their midst.
From Los Angeles to Honolulu, and from Maryland to Houston, individuals and charitable organizations are now being fined or even indicted if they aid the homeless whom the states has chosen to ignore on their streets.
If you want to be a â€śGood Samaritanâ€ť to the homeless in your community, you might want to check and see if it is legal first.Â All over the country, cities are passing laws that make it illegal to feed and shelter the homeless.Â For example, in this article you will read about a church in Maryland that was just fined $12,000 for simply allowing homeless people to sleep outside the church at night.Â This backlash against homeless people comes at a time when homelessness in America is absolutely exploding.
Of course Dundalk is far from alone.Â All across the U.S. laws have been passed that specifically target the homeless.Â According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, the following are some of the most typical ways that the homeless are targetedâ€¦
- Carrying out sweeps (confiscating personal property including tents, bedding, papers, clothing, medications, etc.) in city areas where homeless people live.
- Making panhandling illegal.
- Making it illegal for groups to share food with homeless persons in public spaces.
- Enforcing a â€śquality of lifeâ€ť ordinance relating to public activity and hygiene.
There are some people that have been feeding the hungry for decades that now find that their work has been suddenly made illegal.Â For instance, down in Houston a Good Samaritan named Jay Hamberger is outraged that the help that he has been providing to the homeless for 27 years has now made him an outlawâ€¦ – The Economic Collapse Blog
Sadly, this is the state of America today where the rule of law is only followed if it fits into the ideology of ruling officials, and lawful American citizens are treated as pariahs for helping their fellow neighbors.
No one knows the complete reasoning as to why some mayors such as Rahm Emmanuel in Chicago, and Ed Lee in San Francisco choose to defy Federal law and protect illegal aliens in their cities despite the fact that they are a massive burden on the taxpayers, and commit an exorbitant amount of crime per capita than the rest of the community. Â However what is abundantly clear is that in many of these same cities in America, it is the citizens who are being treated as criminals, with the criminals now being a protected class.
