Chertoff Moves to Arouse Compassion
Selective Enforcement to
create a groundswell of opposition to immigration enforcement,
DHS Secretary Chertoff has embarked on a program of selective
enforcement that he describes as "gonna get ugly."
"And, if they have kids at home... the kids are gonna get
scared because Mommy or Daddy is not coming home," Chertoff
the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board.
"Chertoff is selectively enforcing
immigration law to create monstrosities," said Glenn Spencer
of American Patrol. "He is doing this to evoke outrage and,
ultimately, support for Bush's amnesty program."
Spencer said that Chertoff's promise
to build 150 miles of border fence was intended to gain support
for amnesty. "Chertoff will stop at nothing, including telling
lies, to get amnesty and the American People should be prepared
to respond accordingly," Spencer said.
