WaPo: Govt doesn't have resources to fight drugs, illegals



So, one of the most common lines of arguments of leftists is, "Illegal Immigration is so widespread, we don't have the resources to stop it!" and "So many people use marijuana, it would be foolhardy to try and arrest them!"

"President Obama’s announcement on Thursday that he would take unilateral action to address the nation’s “broken” immigration system shares at least one thing in common with how his Justice Department approaches enforcement of the nation’s marijuana laws: We would do it if we could — but we can’t.

The federal government doesn’t have the manpower to find and remove each and every one of the millions of immigrants living here illegally — or to enforce the full extent of its myriad drug laws — so it should instead focus on the worst offenders."

That's what the Washington Compost is saying in this article, essentially, "The poor govt doesn't have enough resources, so it can only go after the worst cases of illegal immigrants/drug use" (and by worst cases, it means letting 99%+ go unapprehended.

It's funny, though, how the government never complains about lack of resources when it comes to regulating health care--it finds the resources to hire tens of thousands of new employees to regulate our healthcare. And the government never complains about lack of resources to enforce the endangered species act against property owners, or to harass property owners who have a puddle (a "wetland") in their backyard, or to foment racial tension after a black man attacks a police officer in Missouri.

In other words, when the government wants to do something, it finds the resources to do it. When you hear the "we don't have enough resources" excuse, it's really a way of saying "We like illegal aliens. We like drug use. We're not going to do anything about it." But they write it in such a way that makes it look like a brilliant, "pragmatic" policy choice. (WashPost)
