Sanctuary cities policies undercut democracy

NY Times:

ICE’s Courthouse Arrests Undercut Democracy

This immigration enforcement tactic scares people away from courthouses and harms us all.
The enforcement tactic is necessary because sanctuary cities policies obstruct justice and attempt to undermine federal immigration laws.  If local law enforcement was allowed to cooperate with ICE the courthouse arrests would not be necessary.  Since locals are not cooperating, it is a reasonable means of dealing with the immigration laws scofflaws.

It is absurd to argue that the US cannot enforce its own laws.  It is absurd to argue that people in the country illegally have a right to stay here and should not be taken into custody.  Allowing people to look at the laws as a menu where they can pick and choose which ones they will obey will lead to chaos.
