... is playing out here in MA.

For those of you unfamiliar with the case, an MA judge, aware that an ICE agent was waiting in lobby of the court house to arrest an illegal immigrant on trial in her court (someone who'd entered the country illegally three times and been flagged for both drug possession and drunk driving, BTW) switched off the court recording system, worked out a plan with the illegal's attorney, and had the fugitive secretly escorted out the back door (literally).

The judge and a court officer have been charged with obstruction of justice, and the nitwit left here in MA -- our Attorney General among them, no less -- are actively seeking out every live microphone so they can proclaim how terrible it is this judge has been brought up on politically motivated charges.

Federal charges brought against Massachusetts Judge Shelley Joseph, accused of helping immigrant avoid ICE

Mass. AG Maura Healey says indictments of Judge Shelley Joseph, court officer in ICE case is ‘radical and politically-motivated attack on our state’


It all adds up to a remarkable display of placing politics above the rule of law.

They should be stripped of their titles.

Please point to one prominent politician who has said they’d like open boarders.

Cortez


During a town hall event in New York on Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez told attendees that America’s immigration system is “completely unjust” and blamed President Trump for “creating” populations of illegal immigrants.

“He is creating undocumented populations in the United States, and then they’re being targeted, and their rights are being targeted,” Ocasio-Cortez said of the President.

“First of all I believe in human rights,” she continued. “I don’t care if you’re documented or you’re undocumented.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's speech echoed her comments from February of this year, when she told a group of reporters on Capital Hill that Latinos have a race-based right to migrate to the United States.

“We have to have … respect for the right of human mobility,” she said. “It is a right. We are standing on native land, and Latino people are descendants of native people. We cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity or our status.”

I dunno. He is not a violent offender and i am wondering if he was subject to legal deportation at the time.

Nowhere in there did AOC say she wanted "open borders". Saying immigrants should be treated humanely and saying Latinos have a "right to migrate" is not the same as saying "I believe in open borders". It's amazing how often Trumpanzees conflate things that aren't the same, and always in an attempt to make themselves look less despicable, or in an attempt to smear someone else. No honesty or ethics whatsoever.

Those words are not used for obvious reasons, but the left's tolerance (and in some cases encouragement) of illegal immigration amounts to the same thing.

How is opposition to immigration law enforcement any different than saying one in favor of "open borders?"

It really depends on what the immigration laws are and what effect they are having on people. The two things are not the same. This is a very stereo typical argument you raise with that question.

One thing remains clear that a country can not have open borders and a welfare state. Open borders is a great idea and way to live. Stop demonizing people wanting to live free.

The thought of being able to come and go as we please is not a bad thing.
