Apart from general abhorrence of immigration enforcement, I continue to believe that one of the concrete reasons the administration doesn’t want local police asking about immigration status and then informing ICE about illegal aliens is that those illegals whom the feds tell cops to release will go on to commit other crimes, much to the administration’s embarrassment. A case in point:
The Virginia man suspected in a drunken-driving crash that killed a Catholic nun in Prince William County this weekend is an illegal immigrant and repeat offender who was awaiting deportation and who federal immigration authorities had released pending further proceedings, police said Monday.
Okay, so here’s a nun-killing, drunk-driving illegal alien whom federal authorities released on his own recognizance pending a deportation hearing. Hard to spin that. Little wonder that “messages left with ICE and the Homeland Security Department were not returned.”
