A fire tragedy occurred in the Bronx last week, killing ten. It's been
written that 22 people (17 children) lived in a one-family structure. The families
were from Mali.
It's been said that New York is a "sanctuary city" (a hot-button political

employees to inquire about the immigration status of those within the city
limits, or for such employees to cooperate with federal immigration officials
under most circumstances. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, New York, and
several others are such lawless, crime infested cities.

But of course when a brutal murder occurs, everyone points fingers of blame
at everyone else. The city blames immigration officials, the immigration folks
blame the city.
