Punishing illegal alien criminals doesn't seem to work very well, however, punishing "the jurisdictions that attempt to shield them from justice" should work very well. It's their decision to shield criminal aliens, they should be held to account for those decisions in Civil Court by the victims families. To raise the stakes I would say that their public position shouldn't shield them from being held liable personally. Why should the taxpayers have to pay for their malfeasance when they have no skin in the game. So if a Police Chief or Sheriff decides to shield a criminal alien and that alien kills someone, they can be sued for their personal possessions like houses, cars and pensions. If they believe their own rhetoric, then they shouldn't have a problem with it. I'm sure those misunderstood hard working Criminals won't let them down.....will they?
