No, there doesn't seem to be an excessive amount of water in the Pennsylvania city; the flood, as it's described, is ICE agents. They're said to be looking for illegal aliens with criminal histories, but are reportedly detaining others who lack green cards, visas, or other legal documentation.
Immigration agents have been rounding up undocumented immigrants in Harrisburg's Allison Hill neighborhood, causing panic among the Hispanic population and sending some residents into hiding.
According to police Capt. Gabriel Olivera, several people have been taken into federal custody, and "families have been broken up". Well that's just terrible; think of the poor, terrified families!
Excuse me, but if this policeman does his job and places somebody under arrest, is he not breaking up the family of the poor criminal? What, exactly, is the difference? Perhaps he's attempting to argue in favor of eliminating all police at city, county, state, and federal levels.
The raids have caused such fear in certain pockets of Allison Hill that some residents reportedly are afraid to go to the corner store, Olivera said.
That sort of statement has but one purpose: to engender sympathy for the poor, frightened illegal foreign nationals. Sorry, I'm fresh out of stock. I expect a new shipment of sympathy to arrive shortly after these frightened people self-deport and then legally enter the country. The good news at present is that Border Patrol claims that illegal crossings have mysteriously dropped by 40% in the past couple of months.
But what really needs to happen is solid enforcement against those who hire illegals. We don't need a wall, we need to go after citizens who hire illegals on the cheap, and we need to go after them hard. It's really straightforward:
Obey the law.
