Re: The embarrassment on the Bay
L.A. Daily News - 9/23/01
NOTE: PUBLISHED ONLY ON AMERICANPATROL.COM AS FAR AS WE KNOW
It is shooting fish in a barrel to object to recent silliness in Berkeley about flags not being displayed and Rep. Barbara Lee's negative vote. But these actions -- while regrettable to many in this community -- are symbolic in nature and do not affect anti-terrorist policies.
Residents of Los Angeles might more constructively consider Special Order 40 which remains in place as a protection to illegal aliens in the city. This ordinance was created by vote of the L.A. City Council 17 yeara ago and prevents police officers from questioning suspects about their immigration status until charges have been filed. Such coddling of foreign nationals illegally in the United States is no longer appropriate.
If reason can possibly overcome political correctness, we should realize that illegal immigration and open borders present an immediate threat to the safety of all Americans. It is reasonable and necessary that foreign nationals illegally in this country be repatriated for the good of everyone.
