Brass Knuckled Justice

Check this out:

In an e-mail dated June 5, 2007, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers told ICE Director Julie Myers that New Haven, Connecticut's Board of Alderman had the previous evening voted to become the first city in the nation to offer IDs to illegal immigrants. That ID program had been under debate for several months.

So, what do you suppose happened? Yeah, you guessed it:

On June 6, 2007, ICE agents swept through New Haven and arrested an estimated 30 illegal aliens. Planning for the raid had begun in April and initially the raid was to have been conducted in May.

How's that for "sending a message?"

Here's a link to the AP's story, which for obvious reasons is couched in far different terms.

An even better way to handl... (Below threshold)

An even better way to handle this nonsense is to let the local govt. issue the first ID's and then immediately arrest and deport the recipients. Then the feds can hold a press conference thanking the local govt. for baiting the trap and helping in the fight to deport illegals. After that, no illegal alien would even risk trying to get one of these ID's.
