Enabled, Benicar?

I prefer the term ENCOURAGED in this case. In either case, I agree 100% . . . NO FEDERAL FUNDS.

I have to agree. Encouraged is a more accurate description.

As with any "negative" . . . this tragedy could very well create a major change in our country.

If a hefty lawsuit is successful then, very possibly, a message will be sent to the Pandering Politicians across the nation to rethink their lopsided sanctuary city policies.

Maybe a major settlement will awaken these goons since common sense and logic have failed.

I agree!!!! God bless that poor woman. Her pain was almost too much to watch.

Here is an article I found which really surprised me. I had no idea the extent of American deaths at the hands of illegals was so large. It also says that 267,000 illegal aliens in our jails are responsible for the 1.3 million crimes of drugs, rape and murder. I've not had a chance yet to get other support for these statistics.

More Americans killed by illegal aliens than Iraq war, study says -- GOPUSA (http://www.gopusa.com/news/2007/february/0222_illegals_report.shtml - broken link)

We've got to make our politicians listen.

This is exactly why we need to follow through and verify every illegal is looked at hard and long. The excuse that we have crime with or without them is completely without merit. The fact still remains that the victims are victims because the illegals were not deported. Compounded all the more when the illegal was in the system and a sanctuary state cut them loose.

I do not understand why sanctuary states exist to begin with. Who determines what state is a sanctuary state? Thanks in advance.

EXCELLENT, as well as SCARY, article, Carolac!

Unfortunately, the Sanctuary City BS is the child of the Illegal Loving Pandering Politicians . . . NOT the majority.
