This is how a republic dies.
But hey! Are you ready to vote for “Democratic Socialism” in November? For open borders, and no more immigration law enforcement?
Portland, Oregon, is ready. Last month “protesters” calling themselves “Occupy ICE” blockaded the city’s ICE office, threatening ICE employees, and stayed there because the mayor refused to let police intervene. Now the employees have sent the mayor a “cease and desist” letter, promising to sue the city if they can’t get police protection from the mob (http://www.wweek.com/news/courts/2018/07/30/ice-agents-say-portland-mayor-violated-the-u-s-constitution-by-barring-police-from-responding-to-the-feds-calls-for-help/). It seems the mayor’s tight leash on the cops created “a zone of terror and lawlessness” around ICE headquarters, putting federal employees in fear of their lives.
The 14th Amendment to the Constitution affords all American citizens equal protection of the laws–even immigration enforcement agents. How inconvenient!
This is Democrat America, folks–mob rule. Just as John Quincy Adams predicted, long ago. His prediction has been a long time coming true, but now it’s here. We can see it with our own eyes.
If this is what you want, by all means vote for Democrats in November. If you want Venezuela, they will give you Venezuela. Right here at home.
A government that refuses to protect its own citizens and enforce its own laws has no reason for existing.
