    I continue to be amazed by how nonchalant many law breakers are.

    On Rock Center tonight there was an Alabama farmer who knowingly hired illegal immigrants and she didn't seem bothered about broadcasting that to the nation. She criticized the governor and the new law. Of course it wasn't her fault for growing things which she couldn't harvest without breaking the law.

    There was an illegal immigrant who let herself be interviewed for the national audience and called Americans racist for daring to think that she shouldn't be here illegally and for being glad that laws would start being enforced.

    There was a college professor who equated enforcing laws against hiring illegal immigrants to the civil rights battles of the 1960's.



    The governor of Alabama naturally objected to the negative characterizations. He agreed Alabama was breaking the law in the 1960's and the federal government rightly cracked down, but said that what is happening now is just the opposite. The federal government is the one ignoring the law and Alabama is being maligned for trying to enforce it.

    He had sympathy for those who are suffering but he seemed reasonably baffled about what to say to a woman who knowingly hires illegal aliens, announces it to everyone, and then criticizes him for saying that can't go on.

    Getting rid of the illegal alien vermin would open up 8 million jobs for Americans. The government needs to help to relocate the American people to fill jobs. Deport the illegal alien A.S.A.P. and get Americans working again. Not all the jobs are picking produce many are manufacturing jobs.

    He’s correct to the extent that illegal aliens are entitled to habeas and other due process rights, subjecting them to punitive measures such as rental restrictions preempts due process and is illegal. See: Plyler v. Doe (1982).

    There’s no evidence the Federal government is ‘ignoring the law’; indeed, the evidence indicates a good faith effort to detain, convict, and deport illegal aliens, deportations having increased over the last administration.

    And again, any state or local jurisdiction that violates a person’s due process rights, before he’s found guilty of entering the country illegally, for example, is in violation of the 14th Amendment.

    Recent actions by the administration suggest that they are perfectly fine with illegal workers staying on the job in Alabama.

    If convicted of some felony, then maybe they'd be queued for deportation after they complete their sentence, but other than that, states are expected to keep absorbing the undocumented immigrants into jobs, schools, health care, etc.

    No?
