NYC Offers Free Lawyers For Illegals
Why do liberals insist on giving lawbreakers things they have no right to?
Check it out:
As if it doesn’t have enough issues to throw money at, “New York City is now the first jurisdiction in the country with a public defender system dedicated solely to providing free legal council to every poor, detained immigrant facing deportation.”
The city recently passed a $4.9 million budget to fund the program designated the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project. The launch comes afte ra one-year trial run the city claimed was successful. The funds will cover about 1,380 currently detained immigrants facing deportation.
Given that deportation proceedings are a civil matter and not a criminal one, this is not a Constitutional issue. The same right to counsel does not apply. However, New York City is now going make legal resident taxpayers pay to provide it, whether they like it, or not.
