Ever wonder why the government doesn't go fishing for illegal aliens at immigration rallies or protests..... lawful rallies and protest are protected free speech spots.<quoted text>
Sure looks like a good fishing spot though.
Imagine if the government entered a gun rally and began questioning everyone about the legality of peoples guns and detaining those who didn't bring their papers for their guns? There would be an outcry that would put the government on the defensive for violating peoples constitutional rights.
OK... so some argue that illegal aliens don't have constitutional rights but they're so far from truth and reality on this one. They in fact do have "some" constitutional rights, especially the right to grieve and redress the government relating to immigration policies.
You see, that's the problem with letting them stay for so damn long... the longer they stay, the more rights they obtain.
The USA should have never looked the other way back in 1986. The laws should have been enforced vigilantly... now that we have a 10+ million illegal alien problem and everyone wants them removed ASAP. You simply don't remove millions of people from the USA like a herd of cattle.
Heck... even during Operation VVetback... only a million a year were removed and the government was much more radical in their removal policy. Today only some 400,000 are removed a year.
So you see... this is a problem that is much more complicated than simply rounding up "illegal looking people" and sending them off to Mexico.
