Protecting Illegals?

Source: NC Times

The Immigration watchdog blog has been doing Yoeman's work in an attempt to shut down an illegal immigrant prostitution ring in California. They reported their findings to local police who, you'll be shocked to learn, aren't terribly interested...
SAN DIEGO —- A member of an anti-illegal immigration group filed a complaint with the San Diego County grand jury Thursday in response to what he described as a failure by the San Diego Police Department to adequately respond to an incident of prostitution and human trafficking in migrant camps near McGonigle Canyon, an area where hundreds of migrant workers were evicted last year.

However, police Capt. Boyd Long said that a recent investigation and surveillance of the rural area between Rancho Penasquitos and Carmel Valley produced no evidence of prostitution or trafficking.

The complaint, filed by Los Angeles resident John Monti of the anti-illegal immigration group Save Our State, calls for the investigation of an incident reported the afternoon of Dec. 2. Officers responding to reports of prostitutes brought into the canyon allegedly refused to investigate an area where the alleged sex workers were reportedly seen with about a dozen male migrant workers. According to the complaint, which names two police officers and two police captains as defendants, the alleged prostitutes were “obviously underage.”

“These officers refused to look for the girls other than take a cursory look around the area and said it was impossible to prove prostitution,” the complaint states. “They even refused to question the two men (pimps?) standing near the sex areas.”

San Diego Minutemen founder Jeff Schwilk, who said he witnessed and filmed the incident, said the officers “did not even seem interested … and said it was hard to prove prostitution unless (you see) a money exchange.”

“We don’t feel the Police Department handled this properly,” Schwilk said, adding that his group searched the area in an effort to find the men and alleged prostitutes. The group found a backpack containing such items as toilet paper and condoms that belonged to one of the women, he said.
Why aren't the police interested in crimes committed by illegal aliens? Why are the police so blithely dismissing allegations of human trafficking? It is important that we recognize that this is the eventual path that illegal immigration leads us every single time. As Ike wrote presciently many years ago...
"The rise in illegal border-crossing by Mexican 'wetbacks' to a current rate of more than 1,000,000 cases a year has been accompanied by a curious relaxation in ethical standards extending all the way from the farmer-exploiters of this contraband labor to the highest levels of the Federal Government."
The problem with corruption is that it's never satisfied. Never. It will seek to relax any moral authority to allow even more corruption to follow, this is human nature and why one can not reach an accommodation with corruption or corrupt individuals.

We see this "curious relaxation in ethical standards" all around us, yet folks like Hannitized say if we just allow 'some' corruption that will allow us to deal with the rest? Really, or will the corruption gain even more ground making it even more difficult to deal with the problem in the future?

The Watchdog has video and more if their investigation...here.
