Some laws are less equal than others

A federal judge in San Francisco yesterday blocked plans by the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration to crack down on employers who hire illegal aliens. U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer issued an order saying the agencies could not go forward with plans announced in August to send letters warning employers they face stiff penalties — including fines of up to $10,000 — if they hire workers whose Social Security numbers do not match their names.

Judge Breyer, appointed by President Clinton in 1997, said the new work-site rules likely would impose hardships on businesses and their workers, adding that the plaintiffs had "demonstrated they will be irreparably harmed" if the rules are enforced. The plaintiffs in the suit include the AFL-CIO, the American Civil Liberties Union, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a number of other business, labor and immigration-activist groups. Washington Times. I added the bits in bold.

Well, isn't that nice of the judge, so what he's saying is, if you're accused of breaking the law, like stealing a car or something and the police want to catch you, if you can demonstrate that you'll be "irreparably harmed", he won't let them. But only if you're an illegal alien. What would the criminals of the world do without the ACLU and soft judges like these. I wonder what they would have done if a couple of illegals had bashed up a couple of homosexual folks, who would have to take one for the team then?
