Aren't 'Sanctuary Cities' that promote illegal immigration cool? Suspect in Times Square bomb plot was known to be living illegally in Boston

Gee, David Gregory, you mean terror suspect So Pir Kahn was known to be living in the U.S. illegally -- and nothing was done?

The magnificent investigators at Judicial Watch unearthed this startling news, which you most definitely will not be reading in your state-run media periodicals.

In an alarming example of how sanctuary cities can protect terrorists, a Pakistani man arrested for the Time Square bombing admitted on a city license application that he entered the U.S. illegally and authorities took no action.

That’s because he applied for the cabbie license in a state (Massachusetts) that openly protects illegal immigrants from deportation. Local law enforcement agencies throughout Massachusetts have don’t-ask-don’t-tell policies regarding illegal aliens and in this case the Boston Police Department has for years known that the terrorist, So Pir Khan, was in the country illegally.

Khan was recently arrested in an FBI terror sweep for his involvement in the Time Square bombing earlier this month. The Boston cab driver is one of three men who funneled money to the fellow Pakistani terrorist (Faisal Shahzad) who tried to blow up New York’s Time Square with a series of bombs hidden in a sports utility vehicle.

When Khan applied for a license to drive a taxi, he admitted in writing that he had come to the United States illegally in 1991. The application was submitted to Boston Police but no action was ever taken. Khan easily obtained the cabbie license and regularly drove around one of the nation’s busiest airports with few restrictions. In fact the Boston Police Hackney Division approved Khan’s license to drive a taxi 13 times since he first applied in 1997.

JudicialWatch also reports that despite his employment as a gas station attendant, Boston authorities never thought anything was suspicious when he ponied up $190,000 in cash to purchase taxi medallions. A few years later, he doubled his investment when he sold his shares and, again, no one investigated.

Massachusetts is one of many sanctuary regions; most cities in the bankrupt state of California, Chicago, the District of Columbia, New Haven (CT), Salt Lake City (UT) and Provo (UT) are but a few of the areas that are protecting the rights of criminals and terrorists by willfully ignoring federal law.

But don't worry -- mainstream media is too busy misconstruing Rand Paul's comments on the Constitution and the 1875 and 1964 Civil Rights Acts to concern themselves with the safety of American citizens.

So don't fret, folks, we're in the best of hands. After all, our beloved Attorney General Eric Holder and our equally outstanding DHS Chief Janet Napolitano are both watching over us like hacks hawks.
