Anti-democratic, illegal, and costly
people of the United States, through their representatives in
Congress, have attached limits and requirements to immigration
to the United States. Many foreign nationals, however, choose
to ignore these democratically enacted laws. This results in
the dangerous and alarmingly widespread phenomenon of illegal
immigration. In a world in which nearly 5 billion persons live
in countries poorer than Mexico, illegal immigration, of course,
simply must be stopped.
disturbing, however, is the fact that some local municipalities
have adopted policies, either in law or in practice, that similarly
ignore the wishes of the American people. These policies, called
"sanctuary policies," promise foreign nationals who
have broken our laws that the municipality in which they live
will help them in their lawbreaking by resisting efforts to
report them to the proper authorities. "Sanctuary cities"
also flout the law by offering certain public services, like
shelter, to persons regardless of whether the person is in the
United States in violation of American law.
policies are illegal, naturally, and have been rejected by the
courts. Nevertheless, some cities, remarkably, persist in maintaining
their illegal sanctuary policies. Unfortunately, the executive
branch of the federal government has been for many years utterly
derelict in forcing, as is its duty, municipalities to abide
by the law.
Founding Fathers, however, foresaw situations like this, and
instituted a mechanism by which the people of the United States
could compel its laws and will to be respected: the courts.
if you live in a city with a sanctuary policy (either explicit
or implicit), and you have been the victim of a violent crime
committed by an illegal alien who has benefited from said sanctuary
policy, and if you have suffered personal injury, you might
be entitled to monetary damages. If you fit this description,
