For John, BLUF: The US works, as a society, because we have a relatively high level of trust, amongst citizens and between citizens and government. The coddling of illegal immigrants tends to erode that trust, which is bad for our society. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The [Lowell] Sun, by Columnist Peter Lucas, 7 May 2019.
Here is the lede plus five:
Attorney General Maura Healey should be happy with U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling.I think Mr Peter Lucas is correct. We are getting a lot of whinging out of Mass Attorney General Maura Healey, but precious little action over the shameful act of Newton District Court Judge Shelley Joseph in releasing an illegal immigrant who was wanted by ICE and also the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Ms healey is a NATO kind of person—"No Action, Talk Only".
He is doing the job she does not want to do, enforcing the law.
And because he is picking up the slack, Healey has more time to spend suing President Donald Trump, something she loves to do.
Healey, a progressive Democrat, has filed more suits against Trump than just about any other attorney general in the country.
Many of the suits have been filed in conjunction with the Democratic Attorneys Generals Association (DAGA), a political organization that opposes just about everything Trump stands for, illegal immigration, to cutting onerous regulations.
Most of the suits go nowhere but they make headlines.
