Forget American core beliefs about equal justice under the law; a two-tiered system exists in Maywood, where citizens are required to obey the laws and pay the fines, but "immigrants" (i.e., illegal aliens) are cut unimaginable slack [Welcome to Maywood, Where Roads Open Up for Immigrants, Los Angeles Times, March 20, 2006].
Foreigners are not expected to have drivers licenses or car tags; nope, too oppressive. That annoying law stuff is for the suckers.
Welcome to the third world, here in America, resulting from immigration anarchy. (Watch an animation of Los Angeles` explosive Hispanic population growth, which shows that open borders and fertility run amok are more effective at implementing invasion than a division of panzers. )
In Maywood, where 96% of the residents are Latino, and more than half are foreign-born, the City Council has vowed to make the municipality a "sanctuary city" for illegal immigrants, and over the last few months it has set out to prove it.
First, the city eliminated the Police Department`s traffic division after complaints that officers unfairly targeted illegal immigrants. Then it made it much more difficult for police to tow cars whose owners didn`t have driver`s licenses, a practice that affected mostly undocumented people who could not obtain licenses.
In January, the City Council passed a resolution opposing a proposed federal law that would criminalize illegal immigration and make local police departments enforce immigration law.
No traffic enforcement! Well, that`s diverse, (though not exactly strong on public safety). Let`s all take a drive through Maywood!
Seriously, here`s a map showing the location of Maywood, so you can avoid the place.
