she violated state law by using state records and compiling list of clients of the state.

Newspapers dont work for the state and dont sign agreements to protect the information belonging to the state.

Newspapers list names of persons conviced of a crime[public information]..did she do the same? did she list convicted immigration criminals? No...she listed people she believed were in the country illegally not form a public source but secure state records.

Yes, she violated the law, but her motives were honorable. Wait. . . Isn’t that the defense being used by pro-illegals to justify the numerous violations of our laws by illegal aliens? They shouldn’t be punished for breaking our laws to seek a better life, feed their families, send money home to their starving children, etc. So, we should forgive illegals for violating our laws for the “right” reasons, but she, and other citizens, must obey the law, or suffer the consequences. Hmmm. . . What’s wrong with this picture?

By the way, I am not defending her for violating the law. I am merely illustrating our two-tiered system of justice. Citizen offenders should be punished, while illegal aliens should be forgiven and rewarded with a legal path to citizenship.

Thank you for voicing my thoughts as well. Although her actions were wrong, her intent was honorable.
