Judge Grants Illegal Immigrant Work Privileges in Jail Sentence for Drunken-Driving Incident
Read the article.
Yes, you read the title of the article right. A judge granted a man, who is not legally allowed to work in the US, work release from jail.
This would be laughable if it wasn't the most incredible part of it.
The judge sentenced him to 11 months in jail, on work release, for being at 3 times the legal limit for blood alcohol level while driving the wrong way on the expressway, while being in the country illegally.
I have a question about all of this. Does it seem like the illegal immigration faction is winning in this country? It seems as if illegal immigration has become less of a taboo than it was in the past.
These people used to have to hide in the underground of the US society. Sneak around surviving as good as they can, viewed by society as being the criminals that they are.
Now they have gone mainstream.
The media has transitioned from calling them illegals to now calling them undocumented workers.
We have sanctuary cities hiding them from immigration authorities.
We have a federal government who is lax, at best, on enforcement.
There are organizations that help them cross the border, get food and water, get legal help.
They have their own phone apps for God's sake.
Finally, think the solution is voting Obama out? Depends on who votes him out.
Romney is saying the right things but has a bit of a credibility problem. Will he follow through?
Perry is almost weaker on immigration than Obama having set up a Texas version of the Dream Act for state colleges.
WHat are your thoughts? Are we nearing a point of no return on illegal immigration?
