Illegal immigrants are not feeling welcome any more in the United States. The new President is sending enforcement agents out to round them up so they can be sent home or jailed if they are serious law breakers. Americans who oppose this enforcement of existing law are not just surprised. They are aghast that someone would actually enforce immigration laws that they don’t like.
Here is an interesting story of an illegal being arrested who has been practicing immigration law in California for fifteen years.
“Illegal Alien Supporters Are Aghast At ICE Arresting Illegals At Courthouses”
Octavio Chaidez was walking out of a Pasadena courtroom with a client last month when four men jumped up from a hallway bench and rushed toward them.
The men asked his client’s name. Then they pulled out badges.
“They say, ‘You’re Mr. So and So?’ and he says, ‘Yes,’ ” Chaidez said. “They show him a badge, and they say, ‘We’re from Immigration and Customs,’ and they took him in.”
Chaidez, who has worked as a defense attorney in Los Angeles County for nearly 15 years, said he had never seen federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents make an arrest inside the confines of a courthouse.
What’s barely mentioned in this article, and barely or not mentioned in so many that mimic the LA Times one above, is that Mr. Chaidez’s client was a “previously deported Mexican national with a prior felony conviction for drug trafficking”. Coming back into the U.S. after being deported is also a federal felony. Why are we concerned about a criminal like this being made scared?”
People who are in the United States illegally are sad – and worried. But there is a solution.
Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has told them they won’t be arrested in his country, that it has great social programs they can enjoy, and they are welcome.
As a result illegals are deciding to emigrate to Canada. It’s easy. You can walk across the border. That should be a win-win for both countries.
The American state of Hawaii is also determined to protect the rights of illegal emigrants and others from middle-eastern countries. It has been suggested that we ship them there. That sounds good when you say it fast but it would be much more expensive than simply allowing them to deport to Canada. They would need airline tickets because Hawaii is in the middle of an ocean.
