Mayor of Philadelphia Celebrates Sanctuary City Title
U.S. Dept. of Justice



Yesterday the Mayor of Philadelphia was filmed dancing and celebrating a victory for criminal aliens in a federal district court case. Please attribute the following statement to Department of Justice spokesman Devin O'Malley:

“Yesterday, the Mayor of the City of Philadelphia danced in jubilation over a court ruling that will allow him to continue to protect known and suspected criminal aliens in the City’s custody. These are individuals who have victimized the residents of the City he has sworn to protect. These are individuals like the violent criminal alien who was arrested in Philadelphia last year for forcing his girlfriend into a hot oven but was never turned over to immigration authorities. The video is a sad and disturbing reminder that politicians like Mayor Kenney prioritize political gain over the law-abiding residents of their own cities and the safety of the law enforcement officers that try to protect them. The Department of Justice will continue to fight for the rule of law, and for the law abiding citizens of Philadelphia who fear victimization and reject the notion of protecting criminals.”
