    Default Pittsburgh Police No Longer Enforcing Immigration Laws

    In a supposed effort "not to be racist" Pittsburgh's police will not check arrestees status to see if the are legal, saying they are "leaving it to the feds". I say Pittsburgh needs to fire their police chief and bring in another Joe Arpaio!

    City Police No Longer Enforcing Immigration Laws


    Pittsburgh police will no longer be checking immigration statuses or enforcing immigration laws.


    Pittsburgh's immigrant community is small, but growing and becoming more visible in neighborhoods like Beechview and Brookline where Gabriel Berumen and his wife, Missy, just opened Las Palmas Groceria, a grocery store.

    "Pittsburgh is good. I like the city. I like the community, I like everybody," Gabriel said.

    The Berumens are here legally, but some of their customers may not be. Either way, Pittsburgh police say a person's immigration status is no longer their business.

    "We want to make sure that we're not terrifying that individual or stepping across that fine line of racial profiling," Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper said.

    Harper recently issued new guidelines to his officers to no longer check the immigration status of a person and to leave enforcement of immigration laws to federal officers. Harper says police need good relations with the immigrant community and should not be feared.

    "It's very important that have communication a very well-built bridge to all neighborhoods throughout the City of Pittsburgh, " he said. "We don't want to have to go into any neighborhood and not be able to communicate."

    University of Pittsburgh Professor David Harris who served on an advisory committee which drew up the new guidelines says they will make police more effective.

    "What this does is it keeps Pittsburgh's police focused on fighting crime instead of checking immigration for which they're not really trained and which will alienate the very people they need as allies to fight crime," Harris said.

    "I honest to God believe that all local police should be trying to do something to stop illegal immigrants," Rich Stanizzo, a labor leader, said.

    He says illegal immigrants are taking American jobs and all law enforcement has a duty to investigate and arrest them.

    "When you crossed this border illegally, that was a crime," he said. "So they already have committed a crime whether it be the city, the state, this country. It's a crime. Somebody better start investigating."

    Andy Sheehan: "Is that the job of the Pittsburgh Police?"

    Stanizzo: "It's the job of every law enforcement officer. It's called a crime."

    Stanizzo says not enforcing immigration laws will make Pittsburgh a safe haven for illegals.

    "I think we're going to get a bigger influx of illegal immigrants into the area and they'll be taking more jobs off United States citizens," he said.

    But in Brookline, most people who spoke with KDKA's Andy Sheehan say the immigrants have been a welcome addition. Missy Berumen says aggressive policing would ultimately hurt the city.

    "We shouldn't be suspicious of the people. We should welcome immigration. We should welcome the people from different countries. That's what America's all about," she said.

    In terms of "large cities", Pittsburgh is relatively White compared to other major cities. They haven't experienced what the people in Arizona's cities are experiencing. There is no better racial education than suffering through the experience of die-versity. Soon, they will be educated.

    After all the steel mills shut down, "education" and "hospitals" (tied to "academic" life) became the only game in town there.

    So, thought reform and re-education is one of the few ways to make a decent salary.

    The population is largely Catholic (previously brought in "immigrants" for mills), with declining Polish population and Irish, and the towns have a different flavor from Southern protestantism, and older 'Americanism' although such places (like in parts of Ohio, PA, etc) are nearby. It's a "northeastern" feel, very definitely, and has attracted many jews.

    Many places, such as the Squirrel Hill enclave/neighborhood are easily half Jewish, over 50%. Lots of kosher restaurants, etc., speciality jewish bookstores, and academics who've come there to "teach" and be in such a neighborhood.

    It's a real litmus of de-industrialization and surrounded by shut down mill towns, some of which are literally ghost towns. The "universities" and foreign academics (often put through school on taxes = remaining savings of previous mill workers) are supposed to set 'the new tone.' The schools concentrate on "research" so it's not really helping the home-grown population.

    The schools seem to concentrate on heavily neo-leftist curriculum, (University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Melon, then many other smaller schools).

    Like a lot of places, due to demographic/history, it has a lot of polarization---way leftist in the schools, and then down-to-earth working class people laid off from mills.

    Due to the prevalence of health care there--- lots of people seem sick. Like, they get roped into various "therapies," and so on. Very new agey. Lots of spin-off 'clinics,' and private therapy contractors, more so than in other places.

    Just my take.


    NY times did an article not long ago about what a success Pittsburgh is, how it had repositioned itself successfully after "De-industrialization," but in reality, some seemed to feel it moved toward the Third World in a huge way--- no products, no creativity (outside university-style cultural product/manufacture). Hospitals and schools, with those officials making the only ok money, everyone else struggling and with no viable work.
