Restrictive laws push undocumented in shadows
San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 3/26/2012 | Elizabeth Aguilera

Restrictive policies aimed at undocumented immigrants have pushed them underground, fostered negative perceptions of law enforcement and created anxiety around mundane activities such as walking their children to school and driving, according to a report released Monday that focuses on North County.

Supporters of those measures said they are intended to make life difficult for the undocumented, with the goal of spurring them to return to their native countries or at least leave this region. Escondido’s police chief also disputed the study’s findings, saying that public safety in his city has not been undermined.

“Nothing justifies breaking the law,” Abed said. “If you are in the country illegally and you feel so uncomfortable ... you put yourself in that situation.”

So it has become tougher for violators of our immigration laws to flagrantly flaunt their ILLEGAL presence in this country? Good.

Any questions?

ALL ILLEGALS should be deported... American citizens supporting them and their efforts should be tried for treason and if found guilty... executed.

Laws are SUPPOSED to inconvenience law breakers, not everybody else.

there’s a very easy solution to any ‘uncomfortableness’ an illegal may feel, and here it is:
apply for, and go thru, the process to become a citizen and taxpayer, or leave, your choice. Pick now.

How about enforcing laws already on the books to push them far, far south back across the border?

Really? Well, give them a compass so they can dig toward the south, then.

Leave already. Until you get a real visa.

NEWSFLASH:

What "pushed" "undocumented immigrants" "underground" is them coming and/or remaining here illegally.

That’s good because the purpose of LAWS is to make CRIMINALS uncomfortable. I want them to be more uncomfortable, and actually scared of being caught.

shouldn't anxiety among people here illegally be a good thing?

Center for American Progress, Podesta’s old hang-out, now run by one of Hillary’s buddies, and partnered with a PAC that’s a recipient of Soros money. A real “independent think tank”.

Mayor Abed was born in Lebanon. He came to the US legally, and has been a proud citizen ever since. His love of his adopted country has made him the target of a four year long series of vile personal attacks conducted by the surrogates of an Hispanic activist who somehow managed to insinuate herself onto our City Council. That Council member, her race-baiting buddies, and a number of the “usual suspects” among America-hating leftist groups have been conducting open warfare against the elected representatives of the citizens of our community for the last five years. It's a pretty ugly scene, abetted by our local newspapers.
