The tragic consequences of government lawlessness

The federal government, and many state and local governments, have been taking an increasingly slack approach to enforcing immigration law. That’s why this kind of thing happens all the time (and, like the perpetrator in the story, is frequently “undocumented” by the legacy media).

The impunity with which aliens can violate the law, not only by entering the United States illegally, but in escaping deportation, undermines the value of citizenship altogether. As I’ve said before, Obama’s alienation from American culture, combined with an indiscriminate admiration for the culture of foreign, and often hostile, countries, is, indeed, leading to the transformation of America – into Austria-Hungary.

”Take my word for it, it was no picnic.”

That's a tragic story. While reading it, I heard all the usual liberal excuses that will be offered for that guy rattling around in my head. I bet he uses his mysterious "ailment" whatever it is, and gets a slap on the wrist.

What, exactly, is the benefit of a being a “sanctuary city”, to the legal citizens of that city?

Other than allowing the liberals there feel good about how "fair" they are.

R-man: You nailed it, buddy. Liberals always think they look so good in a cheap suit of moral smugness.
