That’s not the reality I’m speaking to.
Not all immigrants are criminals, but they, and many American-born children, will refuse to cooperate or report anything to Police, because their presence can threaten the people they know who are here illegally.
Spread across an entire community, you create dead zones of enforcement.
So the Police have a choice; ignore this Federal law, or create dead zones in their ability to police. Police cannot do their job in a vacuum , they rely on self-reporting.
Hence why, Police in Red Cities, in Red states, choose to not enforce the law. It creates too many other problems.
Just like media piracy laws, or marijuana laws now.
Rejecting this requires fixing the immigration system.
Until you fix the system, nothing will change RET.
At it hearts, this is a problem stemming from over-regulation. More regulation will not fix it. Nor will more enforcement.
No more than “Operation Compliance” fixed Detroit’s ailing economy.
