The new sheriff for Los Angeles County, Alex Villanueva, is committed to removing ICE from LA County Jails.
This is unreal.
He wants to endanger law-abiding citizens all in the name of liberal social justice warrior clericism.
Notice whom he quotes on the LA County Sheriff's Department Facebook page:
Machiavelli talked about the need for good laws and good arms.
Does he agree with those sentiments? I doubt it.
I do know that if means are to be assessed, that we must look to the ends--those were the words of Machiavelli, too. That does not necessarily mean that the ends justify the means.
Machiavelli was a pragmatist of sorts, but he also believe in strong borders and fealty to the rule of law.
Will Sheriff Villaneuva live up to these expectations?
