Boo Hoo. What part of illegal doesn’t Arroyo, Rivera, Kaptur, and the rest of the Dems understand? They and their employers broke the laws, which are finally being enforced. Sucks to be them.

Local community leaders held a news conference June 7 to react to what occurred at a Sandusky greenhouse June 5 where 114 alleged undocumented workers were detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Lorain Ward 6 City Councilman Angel Arroyo Jr., who organized the conference at El Centro, 2800 Pearl Ave. in Lorain, said the incident has devastated families.
“There are families who are left picking up the pieces of what took place in Sandusky,” Arroyo said. “These families’ primary care givers have been taken without any word or understanding as to where their loved ones have been taken.”
Arroyo said the workers were traumatized without due process.
“The greenhouse was raided with an army,” he said. “The officers came in with guns and air support.
“You would think they were arresting some notorious gang bangers, drug dealers or rapists. The reality is they went in after hardworking, honest people who have families to provide for. These people were working hard doing the jobs no one else wanted to do. They deserve better.”
Lorain police Chief Cel Rivera said the incident made no sense.
“From a law enforcement standpoint, it did not have to be done,” Rivera said. “These people were not threatening anyone’s national security. It was nothing more than political theater.
“The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement chose to go after easy pickings. They chose to hurt people who were not causing harm to anybody else.”
The Dems were all for enforcing the immigration laws until they became political tools.
They’re illegals, regardless of what politically-inspired label they assign. They pour in and commit more crimes after they get here. They shouldn’t be here in the first place. We have laws, but the DemProg-created “sanctuary cities” keep breaking them.
The U.S. has the right to control who enters the country. There is no Constitutional or legal right for a foreigner to enter the U.S. It’s a privilege. Every country has immigration laws, travel laws, and borders.
I like how Dwight Eisenhower handled the illegal alien problem; a military-directed operation with a no-nonsense approach to kicking out and keeping out illegal aliens. Round them up, send them home.
BTW: Rivera had no problem raiding the home of Joseph Montelon, a former Lorain police officer, because he published newsletters poking fun at Rivera.
