Illegal Alien Cops

The massive tide of illegal aliens Obama has invited to invade the country tend not to be merely unskilled, impoverished Third World peasants, but unskilled, impoverished Third World peasants who would not be here if they were not willing to break our laws. This has presented a challenge to police, who must try to maintain some semblance of public order despite huge numbers of troublemakers. Obama’s own ICE admits that there are 167,527 unincarcerated aliens convicted of crimes other than breaking immigration law who are running around loose in the country, and tens of thousands more are released each year. Fortunately the authorities have settled on an ingenious solution straight out of Jonathan Swift. Since the two things we have no shortage of are Third World foreigners and the crime they cause, why not hire the former to police the latter?

Yes they are serious:

Law enforcement agencies struggling to fill their ranks or connect with their increasingly diverse populations are turning to immigrants to fill the gap.

Most agencies in the country require officers or deputies to be U.S. citizens, but some are allowing immigrants who are legally in the country to wear the badge. From Hawaii to Vermont, agencies are allowing green-card holders and legal immigrants with work permits to join their ranks.

Obama has been handing out work permits to people who entered the country illegally like candy on Halloween (literally by the millions).

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he has no problems with green-card holders becoming police officers because they’ve made a long-term commitment to the country and have undergone extensive background checks. But he worries about the security risks associated with allowing any immigrant with a work permit to become an officer, especially considering that the Obama administration has given hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants work permits.

“We’re handing over a gun and a badge to somebody whose background we don’t really know a lot about,” Krikorian said.

What is this guy, some kind of racist? They aren’t white, therefore they can “connect” with the community. What more do we need to know about them?

The practice had better catch on, because as race-baiters like Obama, Holder, et al. make it increasingly impossible for the police to do their job, finding recruits won’t be getting easier.
