Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

I hope that the IRS under President Trump looks into whether religious organizations that aid and abet criminal fugitives are entitled to keep their tax exempt status. The taxpayers certainly should not be expected to subsidize this.

It's important to realize that we are not, generally speaking, talking about people who are at risk of being sent back to face authoritarian death squads for being political dissidents. It isn't 1986 any more. We are, generally speaking, talking about economic migrants who snuck into our country, in violation of our laws, because they wanted to improve their lifestyles. Fair enough. Everyone would like to have more money, better housing, better schools for their kids, etc. But that doesn't entitle anyone to violate the law, and it doesn't make them heroes when they do.

Additionally, SSPC is talking about shielding people who are already subject to deportation orders. These are people who have had their due process. They have had notice and a hearing before a federal immigration judge. They just don't want to comply with the judge's order. Ask yourself whether anyone would come to your defense if you just decided, arbitrarily, that a judge's orders just shouldn't apply to you.

As yesterday's riots in DC demonstrated, the left seems to believe that is morally entitled to ignore the law. They aren't. No more anarchy. Enough is enough.

I'm such a fucking idiot. Someone just informed me that a presidential term only lasts 4 years. Not to mention I was also informed that these next 4 years will not necessarily be great, in fact they may suck a boatload of ass. Hold on to your seat and get ready for the deathride!
