Illegal - It's not just how they get here.

Gwinnett County, Georgia is in the news for piloting a Federal program to deport illegal aliens who are arrested for other crimes. The usual liberal talking heads are on TV bemoaning how unfair this is, how it breaks up families, and creates problems for children. There is only one problem. The police are not searching homes or even screening traffic for illegal aliens. They are not checking the schools or the churches. These people are already in jail. They have done something to run afoul of the law serious enough to be taken to jail. The screening does not occur for merely receiving a ticket. It occurs once you are already in jail.

It makes one wonder what the motivation of the ACLU for protesting really is. It is not protecting the innocent.
