Why be a Legal Immigrant?
- Cook County Commissioner Roberto Maldonado on Thursday proposed making Cook County a "sanctuary" county for undocumented immigrants.
- "It will prohibit county employees, and Cook County law enforcement professionals, from engaging themselves in (Immigration and Naturalization Service)-type of activities," he said.
- At the hearing, several people spoke out in favor of the idea."We're all immigrants," said 13-year-old Richard Cagnetta. "We were born in the United States, but we are all immigrants. The only people who are not immigrants are Native Americans."
This gives us so much hope for an actual return of the Republican party in Illinois at some point in the not too distant future. An entire "sanctuary county." What an amazingly bad idea. Where are the labor unions in this fight? Illegal aliens drive down real wages as so many of them are willing to work for so much less that bloated union salaries. By supporting democrats who want to throw open the borders and create "sanctuary" whatevers, the unions are cutting their own throats. The left's political suicide continues to play out in slow motion.
