First of all, I think it would be pretty tough to get a conviction of someone who beat up illegal aliens.
You would have to find a cop who would arrest the guy, then find a prosecutor and judge who are more sympathetic to illegals coming in than simple assaults against them, then you would have to find 12 people in a jury who also think that the assault on illegals problem is a greater threat to this country than millions of illegals coming in.
You might find 12 people in California who would convict someone, but it would be a lot harder to find 12 people voting to convict in New Mexico or Arizona.
Secondly, how much of the courts time, the time of the police is going to be spent on this guy, and how many more illegals will be coming in here while the cops and courts are busy with this one guy?
Seems counter productive to even try to prosecute.
If you spend police time and court time on trying to convict one anti-illegal, a thousand more will come in when you are not looking and busy elsewhere while you are not defending the border, making the problem potentially a thousand times worse, and “inviting” a thousand other beatings.
If your fence breaks, and all the cattle are running out, you dont go chasing after the first cow that escapes while leaving the hole in the fence - you should be fixing the fence and stoping the rest of the cows from escaping too.
If a dam starts breaking, you dont take a bucket and try to bail the water that already leaked out - you should be fixing the dam.
Third, illegals, of course, are criminals. They are criminals who have no respect for our laws, have no intention of following our laws, and who have no respect for all of the rest of us and our ancestors who DID!! follow the laws on how to come here legally.
But they should not be beaten up, they should be deported as quickly as possible. I dont see why it would take more than a day to deport them. If it takes longer than a day to get rid of people who have no right to be here, then something is wrong.
Regardless, the real problem is not the beating up of illegals, the real problem is that there are illegals.
If our borders were protected, if the border partol and US Army and Border Patrol were doing their jobs, if people from other countries did not disregard American laws and obeyed and followed the correct procedures to come here, there would not be any illegals to be beaten, and the point is mute.
Instead of prosecuting some guy who abuses illegals, we should be prosecuting/punishing those who are supposed to secure our borders and who are not doing it.
