What part of "illegal" do the Oakland and San Francisco city governments fail to understand? I read in an article in SFGate magazine that Oakland is instructing its employees to refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials' efforts to deport illegal aliens.
This is unbelievable. What part of America do these morons come from where it is OK for elected municipal officials to refuse to cooperate with the federal government? hey, folks, illegal is illegal. And the federal government has every right and in fact is expected by most citizens to do its utmost to enforce the laws of the United States. You as city officials do not have the right to choose which laws to obey or not.
i would like to see the US Justice Department swoop down and arrest these idiots, then expose them to the full force of the law. Federal Law, that is. However, with the sad-sack Gonzales as Attorney General and the pro-illegal alien George Bush in the Presidency, I doubt we will see that. Somewhere the federal government has lost it's courage to prosecute those who openly break federal law. Janet Reno at least had the intestinal fortitude to break down doors in defiance of court orders when she was acting to fuurther President Clinton's "progressive" goals. Why is it that Republicans lack courage to do what is right, whether or not the New York Times or the San Francisco city government agrees or not?
Once again folks. Illegal is illegal. These people are here knowing that they are breaking the law, and making it harder for many legal immigrants with their arrogance, their refusal to respect American culture and their open allegiance to changing our culture to be as failed as their own. The Border Patrol needs to deport these people after a term of (unpaid) hard labor. Doing what Oakland and San Francisco are doing simply encourages more of them to come. And that is something our country does not need. We need more legal immigrants like my friends in the software industry from China, Japan, and other countries where the ethic of hard work, family and law-abiding is ingrained, not useless criminals like most of our southern imports.
