Horrific episode of human smuggling fuels both sides of immigration debate
The discovery of dozens of migrants in a dangerously overheated trailer in San Antonio this (last) weekend has further inflamed the national debate over illegal immigration, particularly sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with federal authorities. In a Facebook post late Sunday, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) appeared to blame the tragedy on sanctuary policies like those adopted by San Antonio, San Francisco, Chicago and other jurisdictions, which he said “entice” people to illegally cross the border by creating the impression that local authorities will shield them from deportation.
Funny, how there’s a ‘War On Drugs’, but human smuggling seems to be largely ignored by ‘the mainstream media’. Between tacit approval by both gov’ts and media of low cost/near slave labor (not to mention sex trafficking!), unless there are deaths (see above) no one seems to care!
If it bleeds (or dies of heat exhaustion) it leads!
