As mentioned elsewhere, Elizabeth Warren has a brilliant solution to stop illegal immigration: just make it legal:
Well, technically, it wouldn’t be “legal,” but it would just be a civil offense like a traffic ticket, which would be zero deterrent. Warren said, "The truth is, immigrants seeking refuge in our country aren’t a threat to national security.”
This is part of a growing trend on the left: reducing crime stats by making crime legal. We see it in cities where leftist groups like Justice Democrats are targeting low turnout elections such as those for district attorneys. A far-left candidate endorsed by AOC just declared victory in Queens, and like all such candidates nationwide, she’s vowing “reform” defined as simply not prosecuting a wide range of crimes.
This should serve as a sobering wake-up call to voters everywhere that you can no longer take local elections for granted if you don’t want your city taken over by criminals and leftist nutjobs. Think that’s an overstatement? In places where such DAs have already taken office, cops, residents and business owners complain that crime is skyrocketing as crooks realize they have been given a “stay out of jail free” card by the “prosecutors.”
Example: “Turnstile jumping,” or evading paying fares on buses and trains, is one of the many crimes Queens’ new DA is promising to ignore. That lax attitude was already instituted by Manhattan DA Cyrus “But Slap Paul Manafort in Solitary at Rikers” Vance, with a new MTA study showing the result: a 35% jump in fare evasion in the first quarter of 2019, causing a loss to the transit system of over $225 million in revenue in 2018.
Wait, so you mean that if you don’t enforce laws, people commit more crimes? Who could ever have seen that coming?! Well, anyone other than a drooling idiot, but lucky for criminals, a lot of those are getting elected these days.
