It's bad enough that we have sanctuary cities, but now we have elements in the federal government who have no regard for our immigration laws.
How many times have we heard liberals scream from the top of their lungs about the insidiousness of state nullification. They harken back to the times of pre-civil war era and bite their fingernails whenever the states start to stick up for themselves.
It is not the states who are nullifying federal laws; it is cities and now we have government agencies such as the Department of Labor who are giving the American people the finger.
Secretary Solis made a taxpayer funded public announcement where she stated the following:
“I’m here to tell you that your president, your secretary of labor, and this department will not allow anyone to be denied his or her rightful pay — especially when so many in our nation are working long, hard and often dangerous hours,”
“We can help, and we will help. If you work in this country, you are protected by our laws. And you can count on the U.S. Department of Labor to see to it that those protections work for you.”
She further states:
"We're protecting all workers regardless of migration status, because that's the federal law."
The federal law protects illegal aliens?
Secretary Solis's parents were immigrants. I don't know if they came here legally, but with her attitude towards our immigration laws, I seriously doubt it. The problem with people like Solis is that they have more fidelity to their ethnicity than they do to their citizenship.
