Look around you, for Pete's sake

The city councils of Tacoma and Seattle, Washington are daring to condemn Arizona's new law designed to combat illegal immigration, one of them (Seattle) even going so far as to institute an official boycott and travel ban by city workers.  The towns' burghers are taking this nosy position into another state's business even as the entire state of Washington is, oddly enough, in the midst of a huge spike in serious crimes being committed by the very individuals that those clueless liberals up in the Pacific Northwest fervently claim simply aren't a problem once they arrive in this country:

"Currently, over half of the individuals on the Washington State Patrol's Most Wanted List are suspected illegal immigrants... There are about 50,000 felony warrants currently issued in Washington State and according to a source in the U.S. Marshall's office between 30-40 percent are believed to be illegal immigrants."

We're going to enjoy seeing those political ostriches attempt to justify their sanctimonious lecturing of the residents of another state to their own constituents should this current wave of felonies continue at this pace.
