A major U.S. county that has long offered illegal immigrants sanctuary and taxpayer-financed services formalized its policy this week by passing a law that prohibits public agencies and employees from asking a person’s immigration status.

With a 5-4 vote, lawmakers in Washington’s King County approved the measure to officially make it an illegal immigrant sanctuary. The largely upscale Seattle-area county of about 2 million residents has long offered illegal aliens public services, including medical care at county-run clinics, and the sheriff’s department has a don’t-ask-don’t-tell immigration policy.

But lawmakers wanted bona fide legislation in the county books to prevent future administrations from violating the unwritten sanctuary policy. The councilman (Larry Gossett) who sponsored the sanctuary law said it’s intended to discourage racial profiling and “ratchet down the fear level” when illegal immigrants seek public health services or deal with law enforcement officers.

Isn’t that the truth! It’s obvious our country is seriously fighting illegal immigration.

Well the reason could be currently there are a few states that will benefit greatly in terms of census dollars that are being allocated to them based on the increase in population by legals and illegals.

Legals and Illegals are TWO completely different things..

Legal Immigrants have used the proper channels to become citizens..

Illegal Aliens have lied, cheated and stolen and now demand amnesty for their crimes..

The 'upscale' must have their semi-slaves.
