The nation's capital will continue to be a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Washington, D.C.'s mayor has ordered police to ignore the immigration status of those they stop or arrest.
The executive order of D.C. Mayor William Gray (left) bucks a nationwide trend. Many states, most notably and recently Alabama, are defending immigration laws that permit police to check the status of suspected illegals.
A substantial numbers of Hispanics in Alabama are apparently staging a strike, closing businesses, including restaurants, to protest the state’s tough new law that seeks to stem the tide of illegal immigration.
The Associated Press has reported that everything from poultry plants to schools are missing what used to be a familiar presence: Hispanic workers.
Alabama’s tough new immigration law, most of which was upheld by a federal judge last week, is having its intended effect: Illegal aliens are leaving the state, and their children are disappearing from schools.
