Cracking Down on IllegalsAnthony Gregory • Tuesday July 28, 2009 11:22 AM PDT •
Means cracking down on citizens too. Hector Veloz was detained for 13 months, including 5 months after he was determined to be a U.S. citizen but the decision was appealed by the immigration authorities.
Some argue that the government is not taking the task of keeping out illegals seriously enough. Because of the nature of the state, there is no way to expect it to do a good job, but I fear what a “serious” approach to cracking down on illegal immigrants would mean, given what its lackadaisical approach has meant for the liberty of Americans.
