Monday's HOT MIC

Monday's HOT MIC

Pursuant to my previous item below, the "resistance" to the laws of the United States by people who are sworn to uphold those very laws is reaching a tipping point:

The federal immigration boss’ threat to flood sanctuary cities with agents is being blasted by Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, who called the threatened surge a waste of resources — while Mayor Martin J. Walsh says he’ll “stand strong” with immigrants. Curtatone told the Herald his sanctuary city always cooperates with Immigration and Customs Enforcement when it comes to violent criminals.

Curtatone called for an “honest conversation” about immigration — including local police on what works in neighborhoods. “Terrorizing immigrants isn’t on that list,” Curtatone said. Walsh said in a statement, “I continue to stand strong with our immigrant community and make them feel welcome here in Boston.”

That supposes that enforcing immigration law -- one of the things that got the current president elected -- constitutes "terror." If to you it does, you might want to step down from the mayor's office, Mesrs. Curtatone and Walsh, because you're in the wrong line of work. And that's as honest as one Walsh can be to another.
