One By One
One of the illegal alien drug dealers released or more accurately given the opportunity to easily escape, has been recaptured. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/07/04/MNMS11JVB8.DTL While not recaptured by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, this does demonstrate that ICEs strategy against illegal immigration is not working. ICE publicly states that it concentrates on the most dangerous illegals and lets the rest remain in the U.S. This, of course, is a foolish policy. Illegal immigration is like guerilla warfare; they need a sea to swim in, to paraphrase Mao Tse-t'ung. These illegals would not be here if they did not have a community to live in un-noticed. Previous posts and links to press reports described how these illegal alien drug dealers live in the East Bay or Oakland, but, of course, failed to mention that they are living in the large illegal alien community in East Oakland, where they fit right in. Because ICE makes no enforcement efforts in these communities, they live without fear, even apparently when they are arrested and convicted of crimes. They are hiding in plain sight, but unlike in Poe's story, not unnoticed, just ignored.
