La Raza: No Enforcement Por Favor

Source: Beyond Borders Blog

A statement from our good pals at "The Race." Bonus points if you catch all the lies...(some light fisking may occur)
This week, the House introduced various bills that do nothing to fix our nation’s broken immigration system, but are designed to produce good sound bites in the run-up to the November elections. One such bill is H.R. 6089, which includes provisions from the CLEAR Act and H.R. 4437 to turn state and local police into immigration agents.
It also has the marvelous quality of being wildly popular amongst the legal populace, fancy that. Isn't it fascinating how, to professional Hispanics, "fixing" our immigration system mainly requires amnesty? And precisely no enforcement, cuz as we all know, enforcement just doesn't work! (nudge-nudge wink-wink)
This bill will jeopardize public safety. By gaining the trust of the community, state and local law enforcement have reduced crime and victimization across the country. If immigrants see state and local police as federal immigration agents, they will be less likely to come forward and report information about crimes that they witness or experience; the trust needed for effective community policing will be destroyed. Many law enforcement agents have expressed opposition to this provision because they do not want to lose the trust of the community.
"Immigrants?"  This has nothing whatsoever to do with immigrants.  Immigrants are just fine no thanks to race baiting whores such as yourselves.  However, illegal is the word that you simply refuse to utter, and when a person is in this country illegally the sum and total of my concern for them is how quickly they can be summarily removed.
This bill is not about apprehending criminals. Police officers already have the duty to arrest those people in our communities who are committing crimes. The bill’s supporters claim to simply recognize an inherent authority for police to enforce federal immigration law. But if this is the case, then why would such a law be needed? This is a back-door attempt to turn state and local law enforcement into federal law enforcement agencies.
This law is needed to force the "do-nothing" federal agencies to do their bleeping jobs, again, no thanks to you.  And of course, how nice to have the folks of "The Race" on the record as saying it's not illegal to be in this country illegally.
This bill is a waste of taxpayer dollars and takes state and local police forces away from job number one: fighting crime. Cities and states don’t want to use scarce police resources to enforce immigration law. There is no question that the federal government has failed to enforce our immigration laws. But instead of tackling this difficult issue, the House is simply passing the buck to state and local police, and asking them to enforce civil immigration laws while also fighting crime and keeping our communities safe. The top priority of our state and local police officers should be investigating, solving, and preventing real crimes. H.R. 6089 is not only a distraction from that mission, but will make their jobs harder and our communities less safe.
Police agencies don't want to do this?  Really?  Maybe someone should have alerted my buddy Digger before he posted this...
Counties across the United States are starting put into place immigration enforcement policies allowing them to detain and start deportation proceedings for illegal aliens that they arrest. The latest is Davidson County in Tennessee where Sheriff Daron Hall has filed a formal request with the Department of Homeland Security to start using the Delegation of Authority Program from the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1996.
This allows local law enforcement to screen if someone is illegal and start deportation without having to rely on Federal authorities.

Sheriff Hall is not alone as the Department of Homeland Security has a large pile of requests from counties across the country.
The newspaper article goes on to say...
Davidson County is currently in a mandatory 30-day assessment period, which the Department of Homeland Security imposed upon its receipt of Hall’s letter on Aug. 31.

Eager to streamline Davidson County’s entry into the program, Hall has said he will call the Department of Homeland Security “on day 31.”
Nope, no interest there.
Victims of domestic violence and other crimes will have good reason to fear the police if this bill passes. Under this new legislation, every contact that crime victims have with the police will be fraught with peril because their immigration status can be called into question.
These "victims of domestic violence" should be experiencing this in their home countries, not here.  We are under precisely zero obligation to a person who broke into this country.  The big problem here is not that these women are being beat, it's that their being beat in this country and not their real country, which would be, Mexico.  Just as we shouldn't be feeding, educating, employing, treating, etc. ad nauseum virtually the entire population of Mexico, we also shouldn't be dealing with their crimes. 

If you are here illegally your first crime was crossing the border, my sympathy dried up right then and there.  Go tell it to the judge, in Mexico.
