Massachusetts Senate Candidate Martha Coakley Admits She Doesn't Enforce Laws She Dislikes
January 17, 2010
Top Massachusetts Law Enforcement elected representative and senate candidate, Martha Coakley, admits that she looks the other way on certain crimes based on her political views. Her selective enforcement benefits cheap labor lobbyists.
Excerpt of Massachusetts Senatorial candidate, Martha Coakley, admission on a radio interview on Nov. 17, 2009 with Mindy Todd of WGBH-Boston (NPR):
Todd: Where do you stand on immigration reform?
Coakley: I think we need it. And I think we have for too long looked the other way. I think we´ve had a federal policy that doesn´t make sense. I firmly believe that we need a good pathway to citizenship. And I know serving as district attorney we always paid attention to the person and not their status…
Coakley took an Oath of Office to defend and protect the Constitution of the state of Massachusetts and the U.S. Constitution and to enforce all laws. She took an Oath to enforce all the laws as they are written, not as she sees fit. As Attorney General Coakley admits that she cherry picks what laws to enforce and how and when to enforce them.
Let´s go over the obvious. Every illegal foreign worker on a construction site represents one un-employed American construction worker that is not bringing home a paycheck. Every illegal foreign worker on hotel job represents an un-employed American worker going without. Wave after wave of cheap illegal foreign workers competing for few job openings can only have one effect – sink wages lower and lower.
Coakley has a lot of explaining to do to the 17% of American workers who are unemployed and who have given up looking. Failing to stop the flood of cheap illegal foreign workers into Massachusetts while we are suffering Great Depression un-employment shows misplaced compassion and questionable judgment. Who benefits from selective enforcement of immigration laws? Could it be limited to cheap labor campaign contributors and political pragmatists like Martha Coakley.
Martha Coakley has a soft spot for cheap labor lobbyists. Will she let other special interests influence her vote if elected to the Senate?
