“Sanctuary County” passes
You may have heard that the county passed a sanctuary county measure. The media is saying that nobody spoke against it. That’s not actually true. We sent in several letters, had a con statement for the voter’s guide, and we did have one couple show up and brave the crowd at the Aug 15th meeting.
However, with very little time to fight it, many of our most active people gone, and everyone else severely overscheduled I do think all of us in the Republican party fell short, both membership and leadership. As it turned out, the Prosecuting Attorney opposed it as well and provided some of the stiffest opposition. In the end it didn’t matter.
I think the left is so determined to oppose President Trump that sanity has left the building. This is not good policy. Every country in the world has immigration laws. And our county just said that the law doesn’t matter. In fact, it made it illegal to enforce the law. I’ve spent my whole life studying other langauges and other cultures. I believe everyone is better off under the rule of law.
If you don’t like how this turned out, please consider becoming a more active member of the party. We are always short handed, and we simply can’t muster enough people in a pinch as with this summer.
This week, due to the fair, I am deferring all other business to next week.
