Zero Tolerance Hypocrisy
"If [recruits] have voluntarily chosen to use felony illegal drugs, either they caved in to peer pressure or there is a flaw in their character makeup in which they are willing to break the law to experiment," said Smith, a reserve police officer. "These are not the kind of people we want as police officers."
No, that's not who we want at all. Instead, we want officers who will refrain from enforcing federal immigration laws. Got that, recruits? Federal drug laws: enforce and obey. Federal immigration laws: not so much.
City Councilman who aid and abet immigration law violations on a massive scale, either because they caved in to peer pressure, or because their is a flaw in their charcter -- these are not the kind of people we want in office.
Either repeal Special Order 40 or stop pretending that you're on the moral high ground when it comes to law enforcement. If you, as Councilmen, get to "pick and choose" which laws to enforce, what right do you have to hold police officers to a higher standard?
