A Philadelphia judge Friday denied an attempt by the local police union to block a Police Department policy that allows officials to release the names of officers who shoot people within 72 hours — a long-standing debate that was rekindled last month when a group of protesters staged a profanity-laced demonstration outside an officer’s Bustleton home.

The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.

Don’t buy into all of that rosy PR about DACA
By Mickey Kaus Special to the Washington Post
Who wants to deport “Dreamers”? Not many people, it turns out. Even veteran immigration restrictionists seem willing to legalize this subset of immigrants in the country illegally if it is part of a package deal. That’s true even though a lot of what’s said about the DACA recipients is PR-style hooey.
For example, it’s often said — indeed, former President Barack Obama just recently said — that the approximately 800,000 of them were “brought to this country by their parents.” Well, many were. But that’s not required to qualify as a protected Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program recipient under the various plans, including Obama’s. You just have to have entered the country illegally before age 16. You could have decided to sneak in against your parents’ wishes. You’re still a “Dreamer!”
