Judicial Watch Files Taxpayer Lawsuit against City of LA over Illegal Alien Sanctuary Policies
Breitbart ^ | May 17, 2012 | Tom Fitton

On Wednesday we filed a taxpayer lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department, Police Chief Charlie Beck and members of the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners over Special Order 7. Under this policy police officers will no longer immediately impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days, as long as they meet certain conditions.

It's no secret that this policy change was made to specifically accommodate illegal aliens.

The problem is that Special Order 7 is unlawful. And, for this reason, Judicial Watch's lawsuit on behalf of Harold P. Sturgeon, filed May 8, 2012, in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles, seeks to stop the use of taxpayer funds to implement the new policy
While illegal immigration support groups and their government allies - including LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief Beck- support the policy change, they do not have a lot of company. Even the city's own police union doesn't want Special Order 7! In fact, the Los Angeles Police Protection League, as it is known, has also filed a lawsuit challenging the new policy.

And here's another group opposed to the policy change - anyone who has ever been harmed by an unlicensed driver. The Los Angeles Daily News interviewed one such person, Don Rosenberg, whose son was killed by an unlicensed driver in San Francisco in 2010: "To me, it is clearly illegal," Rosenberg told the Daily News. "Can you think of one traffic law that when a problem gets worse, they reduce the penalty? I think we should question why this is being done."

With the Dept of JustUs going after Sheriff Joe for upholding the Law, this is just what Conservatice advocacy groups should be doing: SUING THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS and individuals who are violating the Law.

If laws on the books were enforced, and illegals were jailed and had their cars impounded, this little boy would still be alive:

"An illegal immigrant living in Santa Rosa is facing more than five years in prison after admitting that he ran over and killed a four year-old boy last August. 24 year-old Marcos Garcia pleaded guilty to three counts stemming from the death of Christopher "Buddy" Rowe near Jacob's Park in west Santa Rosa. Because Garcia is in the country illegally he'll serve his prison time and then be deported. Garcia was convicted two years ago of driving without a license and was given probation. He was stopped and cited again for the same offense just five days before he killed Christpopher Rowe." (LINK)

Our current immigration policies are what happens when democratic governments start failing to uphold their most basic function in the social contract.

The second part tends to be much bloodier.

I agree that they should sue the government.

Illegal aliens are criminals and commit crimes also in other areas. In Connecticut, for example, there are investigations into fraudulent marriages to help undesirables get green cards.

For example, Bahija Saaadon, 37, illegal alien from Moroccans entered this country under a student visa but never attended any college. Instead, she allegedly entered into a fraudulent marriage and settled in West Haven, Connecticut. She became involved in a racket to arrange other fraudulent marriages to Moroccans. She and nine of her accomplices were arrested recently, received 15 months in jail, and hopefully will be deported.

Is it any wonder that there are more Hispanic babies being born in the US than white babies?

We cannot expect the Democrats to keep immigration honest. They control the immigration policy and our drooling Republicans just let them get away with it. Our Republican presidents have been wimps on anything that has to do with immigration whether legal or illegal. We have to start holding their feet to the fire on immigration issues. I wish that Tom Tancredo were still in congress.

Immigration issues pose the greatest danger to this country. It is one sure way to destroy this country if nothing is done.
