Sanctuary City Fail - We Must Cancel Cinco de Mayo
Philadelphia is a sanctuary city. Ice has asked for Philly to turn over the illegals for arrest. Philly said no. ICE says "fine, then we will show up at the Cinco de Mayo celebration in order to keep the public safe."

Now the event is cancelled. And now an entire city of citizens do not get to celebrate a holiday because of illegals.


Philadelphia’s “El Carnaval de Puebla,” an annual celebration that draws more than 15,000 people to Philly’s Mexican-American community, is canceled, organizers say. Their fear is that Immigration and Customs Enforcement will show up and cart off parade participants.

ICE admits that it has targeted and arrested individuals in Philadelphia. But, according to Philadelphia ICE director Jennifer Ritchey, who provided NBC News with a written statement, the city was warned of the operation and instructed that they could turn over the undocumented immigrants for arrest. Philly, a “sanctuary city,” refused, so ICE said it stepped in to prevent ”a situation that puts the public at unnecessary risk,” Ritchey added.

Hey, I'm with you. People should be free to celebrate a holiday without getting harrassed by the government.

I'm torn, I mean really torn.... The fact it was Saint Patrick's day last week did not, and should not, make it a day where people who are breaking the law are untouchable.

At the same time, prowling a parade looking to arrest people for a non violent crime, seems a bit ghoulish.
