Don't mess with small town cops — the update

A little while ago, I brought up a New Hampshire police chief who had a novel approach to dealing with illegal aliens: he arrested one under the “criminal trespass” statute.

Yesterday, Jorge Mora Ramirez, 21, of Mexico, pleaded guilty. He was fined $120 for driving without a license. A further fine of $1,000 for the criminal trespass charge was suspended — presuming he reports for deportation by Friday.

It’s not much, but it’s a start. And I, for one, am glad to see local law enforcement stepping up when federal authorities are falling down on the job.

In fact, the only people I can see who are upset about this are — surprise, surprise — the New Hampshire chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Here’s hoping that the word spreads: if you’re in the country illegally, stay the hell away from New Ipswich, New Hampshire. And with luck, that will spread beyond New Ipswich.
