So-Called Immigrants Rights Groups Confused About Immigration Enforcement In California, uniformed Border Patrol agents have been temporarily reassigned for the relief effort. The ACLU and immigrants rights group claim that this is unfair to illegals because the sight of the Border Patrol uniforms is scaring them away from the evacuation sites. The immigrants rights groups are claiming that the presence of these uniformed agents unfairly discriminates against foreign migrants.
This really gets under my skin. First of all, why are immigrants rights groups always challenging the deportation of illegal aliens, suggesting that this violates the rights of immigrants? This is like saying that the arrest of purveyors of illegal narcotics serves as an abridgment of the rights of pharmaceutical venders generally. Second, if migrant workers who are here legally are afraid of being deported, then I would say that these so-called immigrant rights groups have failed in their civic obligation to let the migrants know that they need not fear deportation if they are here legally.
