ya know, I hear rationalizations from apologists for both parties, but either illegal means illegal or it doesn't. It doesn't mean "well we're making money off a few of them, so its ok." Illegal is illegal and either the law needs to be changed or it needs to be enforced. They won't change the law because they'd be tarred and feathered.
But they're going to let immigrants in, both illegal and record numbers of legal. You don't do that with 20% unemployment, unless you're purposely trying to drive the working class into poverty.
Where else do we have selective enforcement? for first time, non violent possession of "drug paraphenalia"? Not where I live, you're going to prison, Jack.
This is official misconduct by public officials, or what we laughingly refer to as our public servants, who take oaths to do their duty, to uphold the constitution. Both parties are ignoring the law.
when you try to explain this away, you're saying "yeah, he's a crook, but he's our crook," When you protect your crook, nobody's gonna listen to girlish whining about the other guy's crook.
