I was shopping at the Kohls Department store this morning around 10:30a.m. and witnessed a Police I.C.E. raid on El Balazo restaurant. I am glad to see that Pleasanton is NOT a "sanctuary city"! I welcome anyone to come here legally and work and have been frustrated with the liberal thinkers who are sympathetic to the immigrants who come here illegally. I think it has been an insult for a long time, to the people who have registered and respect our laws. I am tired of the excuse that "they do the work that Americans refuse to do". The media will show the same old footage of immigrants picking fruits and vegetables in the fields. It's outdated! There is no agriculture in the cities...San Jose, Oakland, San Francisco, etc. At the very least, immigrants are taking the jobs that our teenagers used to work in the fast food and hospitality industry. And may even be taking jobs that Americans might need to take as a "second job" to keep up with the ever rising cost of gasoline, food, etc. It is also a huge burden on our educational and health care systems. Keep up the good work I.C.E.!!
