According to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the INS and FBI are terrorist organizations for enforcing immigration laws:
U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Friday police raids on dozens of U.S. Wal-Mart stores in the search for illegal immigrants this week amounted to "terrorizing" workers. "It instills a great deal of fear in people who are only trying to earn a living and put food on the table for their family," Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters on a Congressional visit to Mexico.
I believe that we need to create a mechanism that will allow us to track migrant workers and still allow them to work in the US. Despite what reactionaries on the right proclaim, such workers fill a vital need in the agricultural industry, as well as some service industries. However, until Congress develops such a program, it's still illegal to come into the US without a visa and without registering. Illegal immigration is a huge potential security issue, especially post-9/11. Yet here is a member of Congress, while traveling to Mexico, who feels the need to equate law-enforcement professionals to terrorists simply for enforcing the law. It's reprehensible, and even though I know it won't happen, her district ought to vote her out of office in the next election cycle for it. (via Drudge Report)Sphere It View blog reactions
