Op/Ed in L.A. Times

Here's my op/ed from today's Los Angeles Times. It's about the "sanctuary policy" -- an absurd approach to law enforcement that prohibits police officers from asking immigration questions in the course of discharging their duties.

The results are devastating for public safety. As the policy is currently interpreted, convicted and deported illegal alien murderers, rapists and other felons can roam the streets of L.A. with impunity -- even if they're recognized by the policemen who apprehended them -- unless and until they are arrested for yet another crime.

Check out the piece.

Yet another reason why more and more Americans are becoming scofflaws. When those charged with enforcement can pick and choose when and how and upon whom a law will be enforced, ignoring the law via administrative means, then why should the common citizen hold in any higher esteem than they?
