Sin City is now set to become a sanctuary city for criminal illegal immigrants after the Las Vegas Police Department announced that it would no longer cooperate with federal immigration officials.

On Wednesday, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo announced that his police department will cease its cooperation with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). Formerly, under the 278(g) agreement, the city turned over criminal illegal immigrants to ICE agents for arrest and deportation.

The decision was reportedly made following pressure from the pro-mass migration group the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Lombardo blamed the city’s new sanctuary status on a recent ruling by the Central District of California. The ruling declared that states like Nevada without specific immigration statues do not possess the legal authority to hold illegal immigrants in police custody for civil immigration violations.

“I am optimistic that this change will not hinder LVMPD’s ability to fight violent crime” Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said in a statement.

“While the ruling can be seen as a setback, I am determined that through cooperation with our federal partners the goal of removing the worst of the worst can still be accomplished,” Lombardo added.

Sheriff Lombardo also mentioned that the Las Vegas Metro Police Department would continue to work alongside ICE at a detention center close by to remove criminal illegal immigrants.

As many as 1 of 14 inmates in Nevada are illegal immigrants, with close to 1,000 illegal immigrants in state correction facilities for crimes committed in the state. Roughly half of these 1,000 illegal immigrants have been convicted of violent crimes.

  1. IF Las Vegas does actually become a Sanctuary City…my vacationing there will END permanently!
    I have gone to Vegas for fun, LOVE all the shows and just a great time.
    From everything I have heard and read about illegals….theft, killings and whatever else that is done….NO way in hell we would subject ourselves or family and friends we travel with!

  2. once we lose the ability or desire to prosecute criminals….meaning the rule of law has been abandoned, we lose the republic, we lose the country and anarchy as we see in california will result. good luck las vegas, we wont be visting any more.

  3. Too many Californians have moved there. They are quickly ruining a once mostly Republican state. I live in Hollywood, California. Been a Californian since 1981. This state is a mess. So, what happens, the Lefty Californians who have made it a mess move over state lines to contaminate other states with the same mindset that ruined this state!!! Completely insane! I hope this is turned around.

  4. Question……WHY do MY comments ALWAYS seem to get ‘put thru scrutiny by a moderator??? I read all others comments that ARE very much in line with ALL THE other comments posted??? I feel like ‘someone’ is NOT FAIR at ALL. Need to get deeper into the why’ this happens since it definitely appears to be ONLY me😤😖😡

  5. Agree with you….we also will NOT be vacationing in Vegas again! Will let my daughter know….her company is checking into hosting an event out there!

  6. WOW….will be looking for another great fun place to vacation. Not worth risking our lives going to Vegas…period! Have read WAY to much on what problems illegals have created in places they choose to go to. When you’re vetted PRIOR to entering the USA….like MY family was coming from Europe…EVERYONE was voted prior to getting the green light to come…also my father HAD to have a job….we HAD to have a place to live and we HAD to enter the USA WHEN those in charge said we could enter!. What the hell has changed and WHY???

  7. What shame did we not vote not to have
    Sanctuary city, ask for sheriff Lombardo he needs to be fired from his job, I did not move to Las Vegas to be a other California Jr.I say let’s put it on the ballot vote for it to not have a sanctuary city and let the people speak.

  8. No more visits to Las Vegas! Crime, crap in the streets and not safe in hotels! That’s what you’re going to see! To bad the LV council has lost their brains! Look at LV sad!

  9. This is a disgrace. What was Lombardo thinking of or did he just cave to our liberal friends in the NV? He should be voted out of office!

  10. You start having people getting killed in the streets in that town. It won’t be long before it will be a ghost town.

  11. Why is it that public servants once in an office, instead of respecting and enforcing the Laws and doing what is good for the Citizenry and Country, become “rogue owners” by criminal lawbreaking with no accountability or consequences?? These rogue owners become the enemy of society by openly aiding and abetting all criminal invaders and again nothing happens for the Laws are only for taxpayer citizens. Enough. The USA is rapidly becoming another third world cesspool.

Pleural mesothelioma, that is the most common sort and is affecting the area round the lungs, could potentially cause shortness of breath, chest pains, plus a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up blood.
