Remember Philadelphia Mayor Jim “sanctuary city happy dance” Kenney we talked about a couple days ago and the illegal alien released by his city who went on to rape a child?

Guess who the mayor blames? You guessed it — ICE:

What an absolutely shameless POS:
Mayor Kenney, attending a press conference Wednesday on illegal guns, forcefully defended the city’s policy of rejecting ICE detainers for the undocumented without a judge’s warrant to hold them. He says six times last year the city handed over people it was holding when the feds got a warrant.
But McSwain, appointed United States Attorney by President Trump, who’s staked out a get-tough immigration policy, argues the city gave Vasquez a “free pass.”
“What really fosters trust between law enforcement and the community is respect for the rule of law in including immigration laws,” McSwain said.
Mayor Kenney agrees the case is horrible, but argues the solution is as simple as getting a legal document.
“You do see this as a tragedy. No other way to look at it?” Cole asked. Mayor Kenney replied, “An absolute tragedy, but all they had to do is get a warrant and we would have turned him over.”
Got that? The mayor who hates ICE blames ICE for not doing enough to save the child from a criminal released due to his own insane sanctuary city policy.
