Initiative 2015-1 isn’t hate

Initiative 2015-1 does not target immigrants; it targets illegal immigrants; the people who are here illegally in defiance to our laws. Criminals.

Name one country in the world that does not have and enforce borders. Just one, please. We have a system in place for immigration and we welcome immigrants from all over the world to our country that come here legally. Notice the use of the words illegal and legally. Huge difference.

Every law enforcement officer should be required to enforce all our laws, not just the ones the liberals like. I know that the Spokane Police are real busy with property and auto theft cases. Do you think their workload may actually go down if they were allowed to arrest and hold for deportation the illegals that are here?

This is not hate, it is the law and people would really like our laws enforced; each and every one of them. Those that are willing to ignore one law are very likely to choose to ignore other laws. I would urge every eligible voter to demand that our laws be respected and enforced.
