Tom Sowell on Immigration by The Elephant's Child

“What should American immigration policy be? It doesn’t matter what any of us think that policy should be if the borders are not secure, because whoever wants to come across that border will come across anyway in defiance of whatever the policy might be.

If legal benefits are conferred on illegal immigrants before the border is secured, we may as well give up any pretense that we have an immigration policy, because benefits conferred are never going to be taken back, no matter how porous the border remains.”

The Wheels of Justice Grind Slowly, Very Slowly. by The Elephant's Child

As I understand it, the customary and legal reason for a special investigation and a special prosecutor is the discovery of a crime that requires investigation, finding the evidence and charging those who committed the crime.

In this occasion, somehow we got it all backward. A special prosecutor was appointed to find a crime, and then charge somebody with it. In this case there was no known crime. The Left did not like or approve of President Trump, so Mr. Mueller was charged with finding a crime so someoneĀ  (preferably President Trump) could be charged. Mr. Mueller has assembled a team of his former associates to investigate, all of whom were not only Hillary supporters, but apparently Hillary donors as well.

Mr. Mueller seems to have settled on Paul Manafort because of something totally unrelated to the election. His team broke into the Manafort house in the middle of the night, ransacked it, frightened the Manaforts and carted off computers and stuff to investigate. The formal permission to conduct such a raid was apparently issued several days after the raid had already taken place. Which seems a little odd.

If after all this time and all these insinuations and threats, they can’t seem to find a crime, it’s possible that there wasn’t one, as they were told in the first place. But I’m not a lawyer, just a civilian, so perhaps I don’t understand these things.
