An undocumented Tucson woman

She’s isn’t undocumented…you’ve documented her and her story quite well. See, Rosa Imelda Robles Loreto, all four names listed. Very well documented.

“We simply do not understand why local officials continue to disregard the stated directives of President Obama,” said Margo Cowan, the family’s attorney.

Ms. Cowan, you answered your own question when you said “President”, and not “Emperor”, “King”, or “Dictator”. I know Obama himself has a difficult time comprehending this, but our government is set up so no one person has too much power, and there’s a system of check and balances in place so no one person can just make changes whenever they want whenever the mood strikes them. Just because something might be his wish doesn’t make it legal, and it doesn’t mean that every entity at every layer of government everywhere should just lie down and blindly comply.

So how does one harbor a criminal and call itself a “Church?”  And why can’t the Police arrest anyone who is harboring them? Why does it make things legally a sanctuary ?
