Congratulations, you’ve made it through another week and that entitles you to engage in a good shoot-the-shit. This week’s topic is “Sanctuary” cities. What the hell is a Sanctuary City?
Sanctuary is defined as a place of refuge or safety; so I ask you, what refuge or safety was afforded to Kate Steinle? Her life was snuffed out by some genetic defect, a convicted felon, who repeatedly entered the country illegally! It was a sanctuary for Francisco Sanchez, Kate’s killer, but Kate Steinle’s grave. She died in her father’s arms asking for his help, and I’m pissed. So, how the heck does a city, unilaterally, decide not to enforce federal law?
Regardless of where you stand on the immigration issue, here are some irrefutable facts.
Every organism on the face of the planet has a means by which it accepts what is beneficial and rejects what is harmful. At the cellular level that function is performed by the cell wall or cell membrane, and at the life form level it’s a function relegated to the immune system. All living organisms employ this mechanism. Countries, write and employ immigration laws that are designed to serve this purpose but when national immigration laws are short circuited or blatantly ignored you end up with disaster. Immigration is not a divine right. It happens at the generosity and pleasure of the host nation and conducted within prescribed laws. The objective is to welcome what is good and reject what is bad. So I ask again, how does a city unilaterally circumvent the process? I honestly can not comprehend the mentality that does that.
The United States of America has a lawful immigration and guest worker process, and it’s very clear that those here illegally, and the opportunists who live extremely well on the backs of those seeking an opportunity, are the ones claiming that our immigration system is broken. Our immigration process is not broken it simply needs to be followed and enforced where applicable and no municipality should be allowed to circumvent our laws. So, feel free to chime in and tell us what you think.
Have a great weekend readers, be safe, get out and do something with your family or buds!
