Why We Need Secure Bordres

From Michelle Malkin, who's blog is a must-read for me daily...

A woman was murdered in New York, and made to look like suicide. Did she owe money to the mob? Did she make her husband upset? Did she get caught up in a drug deal-gone-bad?

No, she apparantly yelled at an illegal immigrant about the noise he made.

From the article that broke the story-

"I was having a bad day," illegal immigrant Diego Pillco, 19, allegedly told cops. "I didn't mean to kill her. But I did kill her."

Pillco told detectives that he punched Shelly, 40, last Wednesday afternoon outside the Abingdon Square apartment she was using as an office after she yelled at him about the noise he was making while working in a vacant apartment below.

Pillco, who is from Ecuador and speaks only Spanish, also claimed that Shelly slapped him first.

After seeing she was unconscious and believing she was dead, Pillco claimed, he dragged Shelly into her apartment, wrapped a bed sheet around her neck and attached it to a shower rod in the bathroom to make it appear she had hanged herself, sources said. The medical examiner has not yet released autopsy results.

She died because a man that should not be in this country was allowed to stay here. That politicans trying to earn political points turned New York into a "sanctuary city" where police cannot ask the immigration status of the people that they arrest. And, they can't punish people for being here illegally.

This is wrong, on so many levels. For the siren-call of cheap labor, both side of the political fence are going to keep away from immigration reform.

Unless we hold their feet to the fire.
