Philly DA Using Taxpayer Dollars to Help Violent Illegal Immigrants

Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner is gladly using taxpayer dollars to help illegal aliens who come into our country and commit violent crimes.

In what can only be described as a travesty of justice, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office has been caught red-handed providing taxpayer-funded legal aid to illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes, including rape and homicide. Since his election in 2017, buoyed by over a million dollars from left-wing billionaire George Soros, Krasner has been a poster child for the progressive approach to criminal justice— one that advocates for the cessation of mass incarceration and the protection of illegal aliens from rightful legal consequences. This grotesque misallocation of public resources effectively places the interests of illegal immigrants over the safety of American citizens.

The very notion that a District Attorney, whose primary role is to uphold the law and ensure public safety, is actively working to subvert it, is beyond the pale. This is not merely a dereliction of duty; it’s a flagrant abuse of the powers vested in his office, tailored to shield those who have not only broken immigration laws but are charged with heinous acts against the populace he’s supposed to protect. The position of immigration counsel, created under Krasner’s administration in 2018, is aimed at achieving “immigration-neutral” outcomes for defendants. In practice, this means downplaying charges against non-citizens to mitigate “immigration consequences” like deportation, even extending these services to those charged with severe offenses, despite initial assurances to the contrary.

The Left Are Putting Illegal Immigrants Above Citizens

This manipulation of the legal system to serve an ideologically driven agenda not only endangers the community but also erodes trust in the institutions meant to protect them. It’s a telling example of how far some are willing to go to push a radical policy that prioritizes the rights of illegal immigrants over those of law-abiding citizens and victims of crime.

While Krasner’s office may tout these actions as compassionate or just, they are neither. Providing a safety net for violent offenders simply because they are non-citizens is nothing short of justice perverted. It’s a policy that flies in the face of common sense and decency, placing a heavy burden on the very community the District Attorney is sworn to serve and protect.

The disclosed activities of Krasner’s office serve as a stark reminder of the need for accountability and oversight in our justice system, particularly when it is hijacked by ideologues more concerned with social engineering than with upholding the law. This isn’t just poor governance; it’s a dangerous precedent, one that undermines the very fabric of our legal system and betrays every tenant of justice and public safety. As this information comes to light, one must hope it galvanizes the citizens of Philadelphia to demand better and to seek leaders who will place their safety and legal integrity above the altar of political ideology.
