Stop The Presses: Criminals Don't Trust Police?
Police worry about growing distrust among immigrantsLet's walk this one through, shall we?
Montgomery County Police leaders are worried that enforcing federal civil detainers for people wanted on immigration violations has hurt longstanding efforts to build trust within the immigrant community. For years, county police have told the community that they are not interested in anyone's immigration status because they want people to report crimes. That trust has recently taken a hit. Sister Cathy McConnell of St. Camillus Catholic Church in Silver Spring, who works with immigrants, called the loss of trust in the police ''a very sad turn of events."
Illegal immigrants are more likely to become victims of crimes, why? Perhaps because they're here illegally? Now, is the solution to that scenario to play a game of make believe and pretend they're not here illegally?
Is there one other category of criminal with whom we would extend that courtesy? Methinks not.
Sorry Sister Mary Elephant, they are criminals, and we are under no obligation whatsoever to make their criminal stay in this country one whit more pleasant!
