Monday night Normal will consider a “Welcoming Ordinance” for people who have no legal right to be in this country.
We pass laws to protect law breakers?
We pass law for specific interest groups?
We pass laws to protect illegal activity?
Are we now a Banana Republic?
We are a Republic – not a Democracy!
The loudest voices have no right to set laws for everybody else.
Where is the Equal Justice under the law?
The Welcoming Ordinance is a slap in the face to LEGAL immigrants. Undocumented immigrants made their own bed, now they expect laws changed to protect them. That is a slap in the face to EVERY American. Citizenship means nothing if Normal passes the Ordinance.
We are supposedly a country of laws, even if it is getting more and more difficult to tell. Government officials and their kids can break the law and get by with it. Illegal aliens think they can break the law and get by with it.
Personal responsibility must be demanded of every person living in this country. Anarchy exists when laws don’t matter. It isn’t compassion to enable your kids to get by with breaking rules and it isn’t compassion to allow those here illegally to not pay the price. Both create the entitlement citizens who think government owes them. These same people aren’t going to stop with a Welcoming Ordinance, next up will be the right to vote.
If Normal does pass the ordinance we live in a lawless society.
The only people who can’t break the law are the ones forced to pay the bills. The lawbreakers will attend Monday’s meeting, if your rights as an American citizen have no value, stay home.
