Judge Andrew P. Napolitanoopines in the Washington Times on Are sanctuary cities legal?
Each article, in its own way, sends the wrong message to the citizens of our great country, essentially it makes it possible for you to pick and choose what laws you want to obey. The bleeding hearts in New York's Appellate Division "ruled that, given her previous “unblemished record,” firing her for a “one-time mistake” actually “shocks our sense of fairness.” Hmmm, if a driver never has any tickets in 30 years of driving, yet goes on a drinking binge one night and causes the death of an innocent person...should they be given a pass because it was a "one-time mistake." When did every thing become a "gray area," things were much clearer when adults made decisions on the law...not on the excuses for not supporting the law.
Cheating on tests is unacceptable, protecting illegal immigrants is unacceptable and leaders that call for cities, towns, colleges, churches to become a sanctuary place are morally unacceptable. On November 8, Americans sent a clear message, we will no longer be silent when unacceptable things are encouraged by certain leaders and judges who fail to enforce federal laws. After all, if they can pick and choose which laws to follow, so can every citizen.
