Charge a Criminal for a Crime? Eureka!

Here's something from The American Spectator. It's about local police arresting illegal aliens on trespassing charges since the Federal government doesn't seem to want to do it.

Chamberlain charged Ramirez with criminal trespass. Under New Hampshire law, a "person is guilty of criminal trespass if, knowing he is not licensed or privileged to do so, he enters or remains in any place."

"Mr. Ramirez entered the United States illegally," Chamberlain told the Union Leader. "He was not licensed or privileged to be here."

On Tuesday Ramirez goes to court, where a judge will decide if Chamberlain's application of the trespass statute is legally sound. If it holds up, it would mean any police officer in New Hampshire could arrest any illegal alien simply for being an illegal alien. That is a power only federal authorities have now (emphasis mine).

Imagine that: arresting a person who has entered the country illegally for illegally entering the country! How screwed up has this country become that that would seem to be a strange concept? That should be obvious to anyone who's capeable of thought. These liberals have corrupted a lot of peoples's thought-processes so much that we'll be lucky if we can ever get them thinking straight again.

God help us.
