Enforcement Always Works

Source: desmoinesregister

Though this article is entitled "Stop 'aggressive' raids, advocates plead," and though it is filled with the usual whining and puling we've come to expect from those who benefit and profit from illegal immigration there is an interesting detail buried in this story that shows my title is actually more appropriate...
- There were signs in Marshalltown that many Hispanics not arrested in the crackdown were leaving the community. Hispanics made up 13 percent of the city's population of 26,000 when the 2000 census was taken.
Enforcement works, every time, every bleeding time it's accomplished it not only has the salutory effect of removing the individuals in question but it also has ancillary benefits as we see here. Because when you enforce the law those who have broken the law with impunity will take notice and move on to greener pastures. If you can eliminate the greener pastures, well, let's just say it's a happy thought.
