Denver Decriminalizes DOMESTIC VIOLENCE To Protect Criminal ImmigrantsSEVEN?? She'll be DEAD by then. Obviously this is about pampering Illegal Immigrants, since legal immigrants can't be deported, because they became legal citizens. So that's a transparently non-coherent dodge. And Illegal Immigrant/Muslim identity takes precedent over feminist (female) identity. It's good to know where you stand in the Leftist hierarchy of identities. (I know full well where I stand.)
The Denver City Council agreed Monday to change to local sentencing guidelines in order to shield legal immigrants convicted of domestic violence from deportation proceedings.
In a unanimous 12-0 vote, council members revised criminal penalties for several “low-level” crimes, reducing the maximum sentence to less than 365 days in jail. Under federal law, a criminal conviction that results in a sentence of a year or more is grounds for deporting any alien, including U.S. visa holders and legal permanent residents.
The changes, originally proposed by Denver mayor Michael Hancock, split criminal violations of city ordinances into three categories, reports the Denver Post. A first-time domestic violence charge is now considered a “mid-level” offense — comparable to crimes such as trespassing and shoplifting — and will carry a sentence of 300 days in jail and a $999 fine.
City code maintains the current maximum of a year in jail and a $999 fine for just seven serious offenses, including violent assaults and “repeated” domestic violence.
When a government protects the criminal elements in their midst - even those who are there illegally, you know full well that the dominant ideology is not that of Lawfulness. The "Nation Under Law" has been tossed long ago by the Left. It is now the "Nation Under Leftist Whim of the Day".
