December 18, 2007 Whereas...Let the ILLEGAL Invasion Continue?

Bobby Moore writes that City Councilman Mel Tucker's anti-ILLEGAL immigration initiative has hit a wall.

Moore reports that the federal government can't, or won't, do anything to help local law enforcement take steps to address ILLEGAL immigration in Morristown and Hamblen County.

We have a federal government that won't enforce laws against ILLEGAL immigration....and now it also refuses to assist local governments help enforce laws against ILLEGAL immigration!

Mel Tucker sees and has outlined the damage that ILLEGAL immigration has done in Morristown.

Tucker's "WHEREAS" paragraphs in his ILLEGAL immigration resolutions describe some of the damage to the city and to the local community as a result of ILLEGAL immigration. Tucker's federal resolution is here. His state resolution is here.

Sheriff Esco Jarnagin offered an analogy. ILLEGAL immigration is like someone who criminally trespasses on your property, puts up a tent, and "camps out" on your front yard!

After years of throwing out the welcome mat to ILLEGAL immigrants and years of turning a blind eye to the harm and costs of ILLEGAL immigrants, Morristown has become a sanctuary city for ILLEGAL immigrants and Hamblen County has become a sanctuary county for ILLEGAL immigrants.

The city has passed Tucker's resolutions. The county should go ahead and pass the resolutions this Thursday, December 20.

Then instead of just saying "oh, well, let the ILLEGAL invasion continue," citizens and local officials should ramp up the pressure on the federal government to secure our borders and to begin genuine efforts--with the help of local law enforcement--to enforce immigration laws.

I agree whole heartedly. But it appears we will go through many pairs of shoes before we reach everybody.
