Categories: Republican Insanity
Ryan Fattman (I’ll bypass the obvious jokes), state GOP Rep. from Massachusetts thinks undocumented women who are raped should be afraid to talk to the police.
My though is that is someone is here illegally, they should be afraid to come forward. If you do it the right way, you don’t have to be concerned about these things.
Fattman is in favor of the new federal immigration program (Secure Communities Program) that would have police turn undocumented rape victims directly over to the government for deportation.
So, kudos to Obama for allowing this type of assinine program to come forward. There’s been plenty of studies showing that the best way to reduce crime in immigrant neighborhoods is to build trust between the authorities and the community. I guess the president thinks that he can capture the Hispanic vote no matter what.
I also have been reading about a Chicago area DA who is charging a women with illegal recording because she tried to report a policeman groping her and internal affairs wouldn’t file the report. So to me the logical extension of this type of law is that a few bad apple policemen and employers will start raping and stealing from people and threaten them with deportation if they resist. I know this is probably happening anyway, but no need to help these guys out.
Anyone care to wager on the odds of Fattman hiring an illegal maid for a bit of rape?
