For once, the public sector union is opposing a law, and an just and unseemly one, at that.
Commissioner Charlie Beck wants to go easy on illegal immigrants, who cannot get driver’s licenses, and who thus cannot get their cars back when they get impounded. Individuals living in this country illegally do not deserve the privilege of driving in this country. They pose a danger and an undue risk of civil liability for private citizens, businesses, and public agencies who cannot sue them for redress.
The Comissioner’s policy flies in the face of state law and state safety. This transplanted bureaucrat from Long Bach man wants to command one of the largest police departments in the country, and he is more concerned about alienating illegal aliens in this country. This man is living on another planet!
Normally, I am not thrilled with the machinations of public sector unions. But in this case, I applaud the Los Angeles Police Protective League for standing up to an unsupportable ordinance which will do more harm than good.
