You are now in the hands of ICE
A recent sweep by ICE here in the Detroit metropolitan area netted from reports between 40 to 90 individuals, mostly Chaldean Iraqi’s. But before everyone gets their pantyhose in a knot, keep in mind that despite the fact that they are Iraqi Christians they are [A] here illegally [B] convicted of crimes including homicide, rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, robbery, sex assault, weapons violations and other offenses.
Now they are being transported to Ohio for detention and processing. These are not people we want here. And they are here illegally! The fact that they are all Iraqi Chaldean’s is a technical sidebar but not relevant. And they will be deported as soon as they process them.
No new laws. Just enforcing the old ones!
A point that caught my ears when watching the news report was that the lawyer for some of the detainees made the comment that “they haven’t enforced the law in 50 years!’. And your point is what? Welcome to enforcement as it should be! Now! Not 50 years ago! Once again they play the victim card! The comment was made that some of the crimes were from years ago. True but homicide, rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, robbery, sex assault or weapons violations at any time are a problem! You can’t get here because of them. And they are going to claim that Iraq is “unfriendly” to Christians. True. But that is how they play the victim cards.
But reality sucks. And all this activity by ICE nationwide is a great thing in my book. And we don’t need any new laws, just enforcement of the ones we already have. The fact that Barry Soetoro chose to ignore those laws is now old news. There is a new POTUS and he is enforcing the laws as they stand now. Pretty straightforward really.
So, I have some sympathy but over all I am glad to see the long neglected laws getting enforced. In my own mind I believe that simply enforcing the laws on the books would be sufficient to ease the issues in this country and get us back on track.
