I have often blogged that we in America can be our own worst enemy when it comes to the fight against illegal immigration. We see it, we ignore it, thereby, we encourage it.
Case in point: a recent meeting in Wausau where Latinos complained to local officials about the availability of services and programs. They didn’t just complain, hell, they demanded access to taxpayer-funded amenities. Some in the audience were admitted illegal immigrants. Here illegally, and yet they wanted Social Security cards and driver's licenses.
Also attending the meeting were, according to the Wausau Daily Herald, Wausau Police Chief Jeff Hardel and Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch.
Think about that. Two law enforcement officials were on hand, yet no attempt was made to arrest known lawbreakers.
Did anyone raise the issue?
Did the reporter covering the meeting point this out in his article?
It seemed the only concern on the part of the guys in the room wearing the badges was that they wouldn’t be falsely accused of racial profiling. Can't upset their feelings now, can we?
Is it any wonder illegal aliens will do anything and everything possible to get here, and then stay here? Illegal immigrants know that once in America, the free ride can go uninterrupted, because we won’t do anything to stop it.
