Illegal aliens in Danville are breaking the law. With all due respect to Elizabeth R. Johnson's recent plea for leniency and justification for the illegal alien who is in deportation proceedings, I would ask her, which sections of federal law should we enforce and which ones we should ignore just for her? Should we accommodate local citizens who are arrested, convicted and sentenced as well?
I would suggest that her friend pack her bags and join her "Hispanic companion" in the country where he is being deported. Section 212(a)(6) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act and Title 8 United States Code, Section 1182 are the statutes charged against the illegal alien, assuming that he has no other criminal charges and he will be afforded the opportunity to present his case or claim to remain in the U.S. prior to his removal before a judge.
Let's see, he illegally entered into the U.S., obtained employment illegally with forged documents, like a SSN card, violated Kentucky revised statutes and was summarily arrested and now facing deportation. Gee, I wonder if he is getting food stamps, welfare and free medical care as well?
