No safe havens for illegal immigrants

Safe haven shouldn't be given to illegals
I see that some churches are now providing sanctuary for illegal immigrants.
Their facilities are considered sensitive properties, not typically entered into for enforcement purposes, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. The churches plan to use that protection to frustrate enforcement of U.S. laws.
Isn’t that nice of them?
Immigrants here illegally are here by their own decisions to migrate to the U. S. for primarily economic reasons.
Will the good church people also offer refuge to the millions of people in this country who are put out of work by the willingness of illegal immigrants to work for low- and sometimes off-the-books wages?
I also see that Amazon is providing Prime membership discounts to welfare recipients. Those in the electronic benefits transfer programs and supplemental nutrition assistance programs can use their electronic benefits cards to buy into the program at $5.99 per month.
Now they don’t even have to go to the store to get their stuff, just order it from the comfort of their own couch.
Sorry, I am just having a bad day.
