President Trump said Iran had been targeting four American embassies before he ordered the killing of a top Iranian general.
Planck: An old saying, "trite and true", is that hard cases make for bad law. The worst thing to do in a case where some attempt to produce an emotional response, as this article is doing, would be to change the law. This individual is not "undocumented", he is an illegal alien -- that is a fundamental term in law. People who are brought here illegally by their parents may make for sad cases, but to the extent they are underage, they should accompany their parents in deportation. To the extent they have been here long enough to grow up, that does not solve the problem that their parents created a situation for which that the United States government is not responsible, nor are American citizens. In this case, it i even easier since he has committed legal infractions -- whether minor or not is subjective and irrelevant, of those that the government must deport, and that would be all of them, those who break the law are certainly first on the list. He is one of them. This refrain will grow louder, and more incessant, and the Media may never realize that the point of diminishing return on their constant churning out of these stories has been reached and has turned to counter-productive. The more one reads these stories designed to make the heart weep, the harder the heart becomes, and the more the feelings of antipathy grow. In a way they don't intend, the authors of these stories are only making the point for those who believe strongly in enforcing the immigration laws.
