You see, in December 2016, Multnomah County became a “sanctuary county,” which means it refuses to work with federal immigration officials to deport people who have come into America illegally. This also includes people who have a violent history and have multiple violations of U.S. immigration laws.
I believe we can all agree that immigrants who are here illegally and commit crimes should absolutely be turned into federal law enforcement agencies. That is as “Common Sense” as it gets.
However, what about immigrants who arrive here illegally that are so-called “productive” citizens…well…except they aren’t citizens? What do we do with them?
Can the American government secure an illegal immigrant’s rights while at the same time securing a legal American’s God-given rights? Well, no. You see, until the illegal immigrant is an American, by legal definition he has broken the laws of the land, making him a criminal, and thereby forfeiting his rights to liberty.
But criminally entering America is not their only crime. Before any illegal alien receives his/her first paycheck or cash payment the potential of at least 28 crimes will be committed by him/her.
Rather than simply breaking the law by crossing the border illegally, illegal aliens may be guilty of multiple misdemeanor and criminal acts. In a relatively short period of time they proliferate their violations of identity theft, conspiracy, obtaining false documents, making false statements, fraud, violation of federal and state and local laws, and perjury.
This is not American and it is not “productive.”
