While I can't understand why two of the most prominant people involved in this controversy haven't read let alone commented on it, I can understand their objection to it.
The police have many legal tools to apprehend and prosecute a perpetrator but the intent for that prosecution is what is at the heart of the issue. The law has many backdoors written into it and this law is just another one in the line.
While the police can't stop anybody they suspect is illegal because it would be profiling they can come up with an excuse in the process such as jaywalking or spitting on the sidewalk or any number of other minor infractions along the way. All of which cover up the profiling statute.
We all have heard of the problems with profiling of black people and I heard many times that someone was pulled over for a DWB (driving while black).
I think that a better way of dealing with this is in order that would not require the fudging of the law to catch illegal immigrant workers.
"While the police can't stop anybody they suspect is illegal because it would be profiling they can come up with an excuse in the process such as jaywalking or spitting on the sidewalk or any number of other minor infractions along the way. "
So if one does not jaywalk, or spit on the sidewalk AND IS NOT HERE ILLEGALLY then no worries, right?
I think that in the 21st century it's called an UNcivil war.
The administration is under the prime directive to move toward a world order government. They can't be bothered with border disputes, it seems. Nor can they be bothered with millions of Americans being preyed upon by money machines, who legally rape us, but have no ethics, unless of course, it has some bearing on this world order government, I suppose.
I think we could do a lot of good for ourselves by just being better neighbors, supporting smaller businesses locally, and getting our financial affairs redistributed to more local, ethical, and secure money businesses. That type of quiet movement could do a lot over a year's time to stablize a lot of our perceived problems, I believe. I noted on the news this morning that Americans have reduced credit card and home equity debt by 12% over the past year. If that number keeps dropping, a MAJOR source of income to the money machines will be lost.
Way to go, America. We are being proactive in some ways.
