The old divisions of "left" and "right" are crusty and desiccated. What's emerged is a big fight between "open" and "closed".
ICE agents just arrested a doctor in Kalamazoo, Michigan, who's been here for 40 years. His family fled Poland in 1979. It all appears to be over a couple of misdemeanors from when he was 17 years old.
What part of "with liberty and justice for all" is so hard for those Federal agents to understand? This story is obscene.
It's closedness without thought. It's objection to the "outsider" who's been an "insider" as long as I've been alive. It's a long reach for the letter of the law that has nothing whatsoever to do with justice or what's right.
There's something dreadfully wrong with us as a country if we make apologies for this way of interpreting and executing the law.
