Illegals as trespassers

Illegals as trespassers - The Washington Times: Editorials/OP-ED - June 13, 2005

I liked this story if for nothing else the ridiculous justification used by the pro-illegal immigrant groups on why the use of this is "not legal".

Here's the gist of the story:
It all started in April when a police officer in New Ipswich, N.H., approached Jorge Mora Ramirez, a Mexican national, as Mr. Ramirez was having car trouble. In questioning, Mr. Ramirez admitted he was an illegal alien. Per protocol, New Ipswich police alerted federal authorities to the presence of an illegal. The Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement refused to take Mr. Ramirez into custody. So Chief of Police W. Garrett Chamberlain did something out of the ordinary: He charged the illegal alien with trespassing.

Now here's an example of twisted logic, verbal ping pong and downright deceptive words used by these pro-illegal immigration groups:
All this has the usual suspects up in arms, including the New Hampshire chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, the AFL-CIO, a gaggle of activist groups, the Mexican consulate and at least one liberal state legislator. The Mexican consulate has hired a lawyer for Mr. Ramirez and plans to battle trespassing charges lest a precedent be created. The charges are the usual ones: unequal treatment, discrimination and xenophobia. There's nothing like accusations of racism to trump a question of law. As the ACLU defended the Mexican consulate's move:
"They worry about vigilante police chiefs who will round up people based on the color of their skin."

I think we should all start to use some of these adjectives to describe the Mexican goverment and the ACLU. Yeah - that vigilante group - the ACLU ..... or the xenophobic Mexican government....... All I can say is I sure am glad that Congress consolidated all the agencies into the Department of Homeland Security so the US could protect it's borders. Whew - all those taxpayer dollars sure have made a difference.
