We hear that the ICE raids on criminal illegal aliens throughout our nation and in New York City have brought needless panic to the immigrant communities in Queens.

But 38 out of the total 41 New York City deportations were convicted criminals, rapists, child sex offenders, thieves, and drug dealers.

This fear and hysteria could have been avoided if irresponsible politicians and media outlets were not so quick to grandstand President Trumps immigration Executive Orders with false rhetoric and lies, to vilify our president.

Deceptive terms like anti-immigrant and Muslim ban when referring to Trump and his immigrations policies, used to stoke the flames of outrage, are disgraceful lies.

The news about 100,000 National Guard mobilizing as a deportation force is another example of one of the many fake news stories out there and an outrageous lie as well.

Some local politicians were spreading lies that ICE was terrorizing and rounding up hardworking people. Trump is not to blame for the fear spreading in immigrant communities.

This is the unintended consequences of efforts to sabotage our president’s policies, which are in keeping with his campaign promises to fulfill our government’s No. 1 role, keeping Americans safe.

We are all immigrants, and we law-abiding citizens who love America, have had enough of the malicious abuse of our president’s agenda, including our city’s sanctuary policies, harboring certain classes of criminal aliens, in defiance of federal law.

Instead of working with our president, and assuring the public against irrational fears of deportation, Mayor de Blasio and our City Council members are up on their high horses undermining President Trump’s every move, undermining America, and they should hang their heads in shame.

It’s time to finally vote all these incompetent hacks out of office.

THANK YOU. It is good to see someone else exposing the Democrats in NYC to be as bad as Republicans in stroking false fears.

Enough rhetoric from queens says:
Republicans are not stroking false fears. They are upholding the law and trying to repair the economy. Stop complaining because the cougher lost.

Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
Hey ENOUGH RHETORIC, explain how Republicans are upholding the law and repairing the economy that Obama actually did a decent job considering the mess he inherited from Bush II.

Like Trump, because you just say it, does not mean it is true.

undocumented paperboy from Queens says:
I recall that being a republican meant you stood on principles and called a spade a spade when it was warranted. Mr. Trumps executive orders are provoking fears, did you hear he rhetoric during the campaign ? deportation force anyone? I do believe that we need a comprehensive immigration law, that deals with the border crossings while finding away to get people who want to contribute to this great experiment called America in here.
Might I add that part of what made America great was that we were the hope of the world, the only nation that stood for truth and justice, what we are now is far different than that. remember we took the worlds huddled masses and made gods nation on earth, we should not lose that
