LAPD Chief Beck has said that his officers will not work with federal officials to enforce immigration law. He claims it is not their job to work with federal law enforcement agencies.
“We are not going to work in conjunction with Homeland Security on deportation efforts. That is not our job, nor will I make it our job.” said Chief Beck.
I am not in favor of local law enforcement conducting no knock raids on peoples’ homes because they have 1/2 an ounce of pot, but they should work with federal officials on issues of immigration. As President-elect Trump has said many times, “We don’t have a country if we don’t have secure borders.” The same thing is true regarding citizens and citizenship.
The reason Beck needs to be made an example of is that he went as far as to say the LAPD would not work with federal agencies even when dealing with criminals! In other words, LAPD Chief Beck has no problem releasing illegal aliens back into society even after they have broken laws and been in jail.
I am not sure what the Trump administration can do to Chief Beck… but I am sure there is something… perhaps arrest him and put him in gen-pop!
