We can also add the so-called sanctuary city "soon-to-be" stand-off, among these hot spots.
The narrative floated by those supporting sanctuary cities is false.
Namely, to support their position, they cite the fact that our nation was built by immigrants.
Of course it was and nobody is arguing otherwise.
What they fail to mention is that the vast majority of those immigrants who "built this nation" entered the country LEGALLY.
Thus the problem with this fallacy, masquerading as a legitimate argument, is that it is a straw man.
I oppose sanctuary cities, but I do NOT oppose LEGAL immigration.
The federal government--not the mayors of unlawful sanctuary cities--is clearly responsible for enforcing our borders and upholding immigration law.
Those who would paint citizens who are opposed to UNLAWFUL immigration with the same brush as they paint racists--who are opposed to ANY immigration, lawful or not--are disingenuous.
So the battle lines have been drawn between those who would follow federal immigration law and those who would defy it for all of the wrong reasons.
Those who want our borders secured and the end to sanctuary cities are being falsely painted as racist bigots and xenophobes.
In my view, the best way to solve this should not target families so much as it should include an extremely stiff penalty levied against employers of unlawful workers, including both jail time and fines.
The employers of UNLAWFUL immigrants are exploiting those immigrants by paying them sub-minimum wage and offering no employee benefits.
These unscrupulous employers also fail to employ LEGAL immigrants to whom they would be required to pay at least minimum wage and employee benefits.
These companies gain an unfair competitive advantage over companies who play by the rules.
In such an environment it is no wonder that so many jobs are being exported.
