"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Elvira Arellano and the law

Yesterday, I on behalf of the Coalition Against Illegal Immigration, posted regarding Elvira Arellano. Arellano is the woman with the sever year old child with ADHD, who yesterday defiantly took refuge in the Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago to avoid deportation.

Heartless S.O.B. (apologies Mom) that I am, I believe she should be deported as she had been previously (only to sneak back in). Supporters of Arellano:

are calling for a moratorium on deportation until Congress passes its now-shelved immigration reform. They are not going to prevail on that. The U.S. is not about the business of suspending the enforcement of law while it mulls whether to change the law.
The interesting thing about the "moratorium" is that our system is pretty much operating that way already. Arellano's hypocritical stance makes a mockery of immigration law; immigration enforcement; immigration reform; suggests those who legally enter and request citizenship should stay at the back of the line; spits in the face of illegal immigrants that would like the same special treatment and more.

If it's good enough for Elvira, why not me?

Read the editorial at the Chicago Sun-Times

At the end of the editorial is this request for responses, give responding a consideration....

Should Elvira Arellano be deported or allowed to stay in the U.S.? E-mail us by 2 p.m. Thursday at ctc-response@tribune.com with "immigrant" in the subject line. Include your name, hometown and contact information. Responses will be published online and in Friday's Voice of the People.

Also give Blogmeister USA a view for the take on Elvira, with "Illegal Sanctuary."
