Because freedom can't protect itself
This just means that sneaking over the border is encouraged, and more of OUR unemployed suffer. If it is an AMERICAN Civil Liberties Union, then please uphold the rights and earning power of OUR unemployed.
Im sorry but i just do not have sympathy for the situation they are in.Their parents did them the injustice of bringing them here-no fault of their's,i understand that-but still here illegally and getting educated and living here tax free with the exception of sales tax.Why were they allowed to enter our school system in the first place.They should have been deported way back when they registered along with their parents.They come here illegally and then get a free ride.That being said,i have a heart and think it would suck for them to have to go back to Mexico but the law is the law.If these young men and women were from the Philippines they would get shipped off back home in a second.Not their fault they are here illegally but they are here illegal.Blame their parents.These illegals will take the jobs that some legal Americans would have ended up with-and that includes legal mexican americans-you can bet your ass they will not be picking fruit.We need stronger laws on hiring illegals and shut off all the free entitlements they are given.Have them get work visas and pay them a decent wage for their labor even if it means you pay more for your fruits and veggies.Personally,i would have prisoners out there doing it instead of being useless eaters in prison,and pay them the small wage so at least upon their release they would have a bit of money to jump back into society.If they want to immigrate,fine,go through the process all others go through.We had an incident at work where an illegal took out 25 feet of our fence and crashed into a light pole.He had no i.d.,no drivers license,no insurance...the police came,filled out a report and the illegal had friends come get him and that was it.Any legal American would have went to jail-he never saw a day in jail or court and the fence cost us 2 grand.That is just wrong.I feel for those young adults,i really do,but if they get yet another free pass-it was not free-just to them.
Our President arbitrarily decides what laws to enforce and not enforce. He has his bureaucracy create rules and regulations that effectively are laws which do not go through Congress.
Can the ACLU tell me how this is different from TYRANNY?
Isn't this discrimination? Based on age, education, even criminal background? Why isn't the ACLU filing suit?
