Speaking Saturday on her self-titled Fox News program, Jeanine Pirro offered a stark warning to Americans about Democrats’ “extreme leftist agenda.”
“As the Democratic primaries continue, understand that you are looking at the most extreme leftist agenda America has ever witnessed,” the former judge said in her opening statement, according to Fox News. “So you need to start worrying. In fact, you need to be afraid.”
Pirro went on to say that Democrats “don’t care about you, your safety, civil tranquility, innocent Americans, or law and order.”
“Because if they did, they would support the police, law enforcement, ICE, Border Patrol, the military and all the agencies designed to protect the safety of the American citizenry,” she asserted.
Democrats defying the law
Pirro said Saturday that leftists across the country, including those running against President Donald Trump for the White House this November, “openly defy the law and protect those who are guilty of violating it.” That remark comes amid renewed controversy over so-called “sanctuary” jurisdictions, where officials like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti have made clear that local law enforcement won’t be cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel in planned raids.
The Trump administration announced last week that in light of the lack of cooperation from local police departments, specialized border patrol agents will be deployed in the coming months to assist ICE in rounding up foreign criminals hiding in 10 sanctuary cities around the country. According to Pirro, this move will likely receive the support of an “overwhelming” number of Americans, but Democrats, continuing to defend illegal immigrants, are standing strong in their opposition.
“These political clowns don’t care that Americans overwhelmingly support enforcement of the law,” Pirro lamented Saturday, stressing: “Their goal is power.”
According to Pirro, Democrats “get that power when illegals vote — because they know they lost the vote of law-abiding Americans, the ones that support the Constitution, the foundation of our laws.”
“The leftists, on the other hand, prefer to subjugate the laws of the land, even if it means sacrificing the rest of us at their altar of political correctness and identity politics,” she alleged, according to Fox. Take a look:
Trump standing for Americans
President Trump spoke on the issue himself on Friday, slamming sanctuary cities for putting Americans in unneeded danger and vowing to take steps in the right direction.
“Not one more American life should be stolen by sanctuary cities. They’re all over the place and a lot of people don’t want them,” Trump said, according to a transcript of his remarks provided by the White House. “That’s why we’re calling on Congress to pass legislation giving American victims the right to sue sanctuary cities and hold them accountable for the suffering and the damages that they’ve caused.”
