he Baltimore State's Attorney's Office has instructed prosecutors to think twice before charging illegal immigrants with minor, non-violent crimes in response to stepped up immigration enforcement by the Trump administration.

Chief Deputy State's Attorney Michael Schatzow, in a memo sent to all staff Thursday and obtained by The Baltimore Sun, wrote that the Justice Department's deportation efforts "have increased the potential collateral consequences to certain immigrants of minor, non-violent criminal conduct."

"In considering the appropriate disposition of a minor, non-violent criminal case, please be certain to consider those potential consequences to the victim, witnesses, and the defendant," Schatzow wrote

But Baltimore wants the FBI help with the increasing crime problem. Does that mean if the FBI finds evidence of a crime by an illegal alien that they should not do their sworn jobs. Also doesn't that potentially bring up a potential law suit against the FBI for discrimination based only on immigration status ?

I still can't believe Catherine Pugh is the mayor of Baltimore but at least Sheila Dixons crooked ass didn't get elected. The whole city is a mess, we used to take our kids to the science center and the port Discovery every summer but not this year.

Hey Schatzow! Forget the "potential collateral consequences" and do your bleeping job - get criminals punished, discourage small-time offenders from "graduating" to big-time, and get the big-time offenders off the streets (and if "off the streets" means deportation to Mexico or Sweden or ... do your bleeping job!)!
