Faceoff over civil rights and immigration legalities (The Union Leader - NH)
In the above linked article, the New Ipswitch Chief of Police said, "If you're going to come here, then come here legally. I'll welcome you with open arms."
I agree 975% with that man's stance on immigration. This country is being flooded with illegal immigrants, and nobody is doing a DAMNED thing about them. Why? Check out the response to the officer's statement:
The [protest] letter, read to Chamberlain by Rep. Hector M. Velez, D-Manchester, chastised officials for "unjust unconstitutional denials of human rights."
"Everyone in the United States of America, regardless of immigration status, is entitled to equal protection under our nation's laws," Velez said.
The group also accused police departments of setting the stage for racial profiling through their actions.
So, enforcing our laws is unjust? Nice. Why don't I go steal every bit of money from the bank two towns over? Would arresting me on those charges be considered "unjust"? For my sake, I would sure hope so.
What about rape? Should that guy that raped that chick (pick any news story here) be let off the hook because any applicible charges would be "unjust"? Most of the time, the rotten scum should be sentenced to life in prison, no parole, and should be beaten to within an inch of his life so he will beg for death.
So how is immigration any different? How is it unjust for someone to come into our country without going through the proper immigration laws, and for them to be rejected by a small town in New England? How is it any different for that same rejection to take place in a city flooded with immigrants (both legal and illegal), such as Chicago, or Dallas?
"But alas! Even immigrants have rights!"
Yes, including the right to fair and just trial. Bring it on.
"Illegal immigration is okay if the immigrant is making a better life for his family in some crap hole country."
W - R - O - N - G The law is the law, and if you can't go through the process of proper immigration, you don't need it that bad. Besides, the grass is always greener on the other side of the border.
I fully expect this post to stir up some people's emotions, which is a good thing. I just ask that if you feel the need to comment, you be reasonable and remember... "Even flaming internet Nazis have rights."
Too f**king right. What annoys me is the rights protesters, always worried about someone else, think that their governments should carry these people now they are on US soil.
Those people are much like members of PETA and Greenpeace (in some ways)....they deserve to be shot.
