U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does its job!

The title of this post is kind of misleading. Here's the article: More than 1,100 arrested in Cal immigration sweep. My question after reading the article is, "It took you 3 weeks to round up over 1,150 people who ignored deportation orders or returned to the U.S. illegally after being deported? Really?"

We have a real possibility of entering a new great depression. It's one thing to provide taxpayer-funded services to people who entered the country illegally during fantastic economic times. That's annoying and morally wrong. Doing it when the economy is falling apart is suicidal.

Reports are that many people who came to the U.S. illegally are fleeing now that our economy's going downhill. That's fine, and best of luck to them, but it shouldn't have taken this sort of crisis to get ICE to start doing its job in California.
