Consequences for illegal action??

There seems to be an apparent contradiction in our immigration laws in that while it is illegal to enter the country, it is not necessarily illegal to be in the country, so our courts have ruled. Whoa, figure that one out! Accordingly, Congress should make it a felony, not just for re-entry after deportation. However, illegal aliens, even though they might be otherwise decent people can’t help but break our laws if they are to live and move around.

We must restore the Rule of Law and eliminate sanctuary cities. Why would any city give sanctuary from detection, arrest and prosecution? Does this involve committing crimes by not doing anything? Non- or Malfeasance comes to mind. There are over 30 major cities that are known “Sanctuary Cities” with a “don’t ask, don’t tell” mandate to police officers from asking about immigration status without criminal cause. However, the most important mission of the police is to enforce criminal laws and to protect its citizens. Putting blinders on will not solve anything. Best then to go sit and stay in a donut shop and ignore lawlessness or hide behind excuses for letting lawbreakers off the hook.
