Maine’s Soros-Funded DA Will No Longer Prosecute Illegal Immigrants for Specific Traffic Offenses, Including Driving Without a License

Cumberland County District Attorney Jacqueline A. Sartoris, with backing from Soros-funded initiatives, unveiled a new policy shift: illegal aliens will no longer face charges for certain traffic violations in Maine’s largest county.

As of March 1, the policy change has sparked differing reactions, largely due to its implications for illegal aliens driving within the region.

The memo, acquired by The Maine Wire, outlines that individuals, including illegal aliens, will no longer be criminally charged for specific traffic violations. These violations include driving without a license, operating a vehicle with a suspended registration, or driving an unregistered motor vehicle.

Sartoris highlighted the DA’s office emphasis on ‘problem-solving’ and ‘focusing on genuine public safety cases,’ noting the significant caseload, which reportedly surpasses capacity by 150%.

“The focus for us is on problem-solving (making people get legal) and focusing on genuine public safety cases, of which we have plenty,” Sartoris said.

“If you have other thoughts about resolving our 150% caseload, please feel free to share them,” she said.

“At the moment, and for the foreseeable future, this step is prudent, responsive to real-world challenges, and a civil violation is the appropriate response when any of these are the only potential criminal charge,” she added.

The Maine Wire reported:

Although the new non-charging policy will apply to all drivers in Cumberland County, the traffic violations in question are commonly associated with individuals who are present in the U.S. illegally and therefore cannot obtain Driver’s Licenses or vehicle registrations.

The policy change means that any individual pulled over in Cumberland County driving an unregistered vehicle, driving without a license, or driving with a suspended registration will face no criminal penalty if that is their only alleged violation.

Typically, non-charging memoranda have a trickle down effect that result in law enforcement stopping to even attempt enforcement of laws which they know will never apply.

According to the memo, a copy of which was obtained by the Maine Wire, Sartoris is making the change because the Cumberland County DA’s caseload is too high for the taxpayer-funded workers to efficiently process.

As reported by Spectrum News citing the Maine Ethics Commission, Sartoris received a substantial $300,000 donation from Democracy II, a super PAC headquartered in Washington, D.C., backed by billionaire and Democratic political figure George Soros.

Critics highlight that Soros-backed District Attorneys have been involved in a nationwide trend, seeking to reform law enforcement under the guise of social justice. This has resulted in a practice known as prosecutor nullification, where prosecutors’ discretionary power is utilized to bypass laws enacted by state legislatures.

According to the reports some view this action as adding to a developing trend of lawlessness in American cities. Critics argue that such policies, by failing to uphold established laws, will undermine the rule of law and encourage more violations.
