To the editor,

I can remember when the “Sanctuary” movement for illegal aliens started a few years ago. The idea was you didn’t want illegal alien crime victims to be unwilling to talk to the police for fear of being deported. The concern was for the VICTIMS of crimes. Even if you didn’t agree with the policy, you had to admit there was a certain logic to it.

Boy have things changed. You would think even the most ardent open borders enthusiast would see the wisdom in deporting illegals who commit crimes while they’re here. Obviously not. The Democratic party now seems to be fixated on shielding illegal alien CRIMINALS and making sure they can stay here and continue to victimize. How stupid is that?
