Hundreds of Middle Eastern men have been arrested in southern California on immigration violations or other charges. The U.S. Government required all men of a certain age, from certain Islamic nations, to register with immigration officials. Apparently this has enabled authorities to catch lawbreakers, and one hopes this is a prelude to deporting them. Predictably, they’re yelling, “What’s next? concentration camps?” This may come as news to these folks, but this country is at war, having been attacked by men who fit their profile, and who lived in America as undercover terrorist operatives for years. No doubt many, and probably most, of the men arrested are decent, harmless guys, but they have broken the law, and they’re being called to account for it. Sounds like the government is doing its job, for once.
