Let This Year Be Different

I believe 50 Officers were killed in 2018.  Below are their pictures.  They had families, they had children, and many mourn, for many reasons.  We are fighting a battle against illegals.  I am not opposed to those seeking a better life, but I am also in favor of people, like in other countries, being able to come into OUR COUNTRY, legally.  Why is that so hard? There are so many other countries who have strict laws coming into their country, why not ours?

Below are pictures of (4) officers killed in the line of duty at the end of the year. Please, as a former police officer of (22) years, I’d love to hear the reasons why we should not have a tightly-controlled border by whatever reasonable means. Your insights would be very much appreciated in the comments section below.

When a police officer is killed in the line of duty, a piece of our society is also killed. It is an assault upon all of us but the officer’s family bears the pain and indescribable loss.

To quote George Orwell: “People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because there are rough men stand ready to visit violence on their behalf”.

God bless all officers who stand ready to defend us regardless of the risk!

I’m sad to say, this post is entirely a non-sequitur. If the intention is to suggest that police officers killed in the line are killed by illegal immigrants, the connection is not explicit. If it is not not then the point is unclear. But, in the case of the former suggestion, the hard data does not support the claim. Finally, any suggestion that the US does not have tight immigration laws is erroneous to the point of ridiculousness.
