Immigrants “More Law Abiding?”

In an editorial cartoon appearing in today’s edition of our local, Liberal rag, two characters; one a patriotic American male portrayed as potentially racist and another, a female Liberal trying to explain why immigrants should be allowed into this country, interact with each other.

In the cartoon, the female tells the man that “as a group, immigrants are more law-abiding, industrious and disciplined than native-born Americans.”


More law-abiding?


Ok, then explain this to me…

Via WJLA– An undocumented immigrant urinating in public used a box cutter to repeatedly stab a man who had merely suggested he pull up his trousers and use a proper restroom, police say.

On Nov. 30, around 11 p.m., Montgomery County Police were dispatched to the Wheaton Metro bus turnaround along Georgia Avenue. Upon stepping out of their cruisers, officers saw a man with stab wounds and bloody slashes to his neck, face, and stomach.

That victim, plus an uninjured eyewitness, pointed officers toward Salvador Gomez-Lopez, 46, who was allegedly drunk and belligerent. The two men explained that Gomez-Lopez was relieving himself in plain view of fellow bus passengers. When the victim questioned his actions, Gomez-Lopez reportedly reached into his backpack and grabbed hold of a razor-sharp box cutter.

According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Gomez-Lopez is an El Salvadoran national who is in the United States illegally.

Law-abiding, eh?

Or better yet, how about the 2015 case of Kate Steinle who was shot randomly by 45-year-old Jose Ines Garcia Zarate who is an undocumented immigrant and a repeat (as in seven-time) felon that has been previously deported five times back to Mexico, according to immigration officials.

Was that law-abiding or disciplined?

We should also note that in ‘sunny Liberal land’ aka California, Zarate was acquitted of murder and assault in the 2015 San Francisco fatal shooting. He was credited for time served and will be on parole for 48 months and will remain in custody to face federal charges.

I know that there are plenty of examples of ‘law-abiding’ immigrants who do their best to make a better life for themselves and their families. They work hard and stay out of trouble for the most part…

However… the point remains that they are ILLEGAL.

They haven’t taken steps to be in this country LEGALLY.

And I don’t care who you are or how you feel about such…

To remain illegal is still breaking the law.

And if we pick and choose what laws to keep or what laws to break, are we no better than the very illegal immigrants this ruckus is over.

Or not?
