Amnesty Advocates Call for Sanctuary

By Greg L | 26 April 2007 | Illegal Aliens | 11 Comments

The coordinator of the National Capital Immigration Coalition, an organization which apparently has no presence whatsoever other than in front of friendly media outlets, is calling for DC to become a “sanctuary city”, and demands a halt to enforcement actions by the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency of the Department of Homeland Security. This is a little more palatable than his previous calls for congress to grant unconditional amnesty for all illegal aliens, but not by a whole lot.

For those unfamiliar with the coordinator of the NCIC, Jaime Contreras, some my recall the SEIU Local 82 Justice for Janitors Campaign which has pulled stunts like blocking bridges across the Potomac River with buses in 1995 during morning rush hour and disrupting the transit of hundreds of thousands of commuters. Lately statements like this one, from an Air America interview in 2006, might be familiar to some:

You need to legalize the 11 million people who are here on an undocumented status. Many of them are our members.

Although the press seems eager to provide some cover of respectability to these folks, deserving of respect they are not.

Now the assault on America continues, with a call to selectively halt enforcement of the law. Mr. Contreras and his organization apparently believes that there are some laws that shouldn’t be enforced, and unsurprisingly those are laws that apply to illegal aliens who by his own admission make up a significant portion of the membership of his labor union. If you’re a drug dealer with a family, don’t expect Jaime Contreras to call for halting your arrest for “humanitarian” reasons. If you’re an illegal alien, he’s your man, though. Exactly what are the laws that should be enforced, and which ones ignored, Mr. Contreras? And what is the end result on society when the law really isn’t the law, and it’s application is left up to the discretion of local law enforcement agencies who can pick and choose which laws should be enforced?

“Sanctuary policies”, whether explicit as they are in numerous communities in the United States, or implicit, as it is in Virginia Beach, make localities complicit in the crimes caused by illegal aliens who should have been deported rather than allowed to continue to prey on American citizens. Encouraging illegal aliens to reside in these localities undermines public safety, saddles localities with huge financial burdens, and degrades quality of life to the point that some of these areas begin to look more like the third world than the United States.  Any legislator supporting such inanity is in defiance of his oath of office.

Why the media takes any of these folks seriously is a mystery. Why the Department of Homeland Security doesn’t take these folks more seriously as being unregistered foreign agents who are attempting to affect the domestic political process is even more of a mystery.  The public should be outraged by these ridiculous demands.  We’ve seen enough.

    “And what is the end result on society when the law really isn’t the law, and it’s application is left up to the discretion of local law enforcement agencies who can pick and choose which laws should be enforced?”

    Isn’t that what they are accussomed to, back in Mexico? I thought that was one of the things they were “fleeing” from. Very perplexing.

    You mean, they enforce laws in DC now? Who knew?

    AW,

    A very good point. The reason why Mexico and many other Central American Nations are in the exportation of people business is because the rule of law does not exist in those Countries. Do you really think these same police departments would stop enforcing laws against rape and murder?

    The other issue we should take note of is how the position of those that support illegal immigration has changed. It has gone from granting amnesty to not enforcing the law. What will these folks ask for next?

    As I said in another post, don’t be surprised if they try it here in Virginia. I have heard several pro illegal alien people mention that sanctuary city’s would be a great thing in Virginia.

    Remember that the Law and Justice are not the same. It was lawfull to own slaves.

    So if child molesters happen to work hard and pay their taxes just like everyone else, we should overlook their criminal behavior.

    I get it.

    Remember that the Law and Justice are not the same. Child molestation has nothing to do with immigration.

    In the United States we do not tend to ignore lawbreaking because of someone’s personal opinion about what “justice” should be. If there is an argument to be made in this regard, it is properly conducted in a courtroom, or in the legislature. We do not ignore the lawless behavior of any other class of criminals because of supposedly higher notions of that the law should be, but is not, and there is no rational basis for arguing an exception to immigration law any more than there is for crimes against children.

    Anon,

    The slaves were brought to America against their will. Illegals come here knowing full well they are breaking the law. Furthermore, once here to commit further crimes such as id fraud, document fraud, driving without a license etc. There is a huge difference between the two.

    What is amazing about the La Raza crowd is that they have no problem with Mexico stationing troops on its southern borders and treating its relatively few legal immigrants like second class citizens. This is hypocrisia to the utmost.
