It's A Crime Again?...

Investigators who searched the Imperial Beach home of a U.S. Border Patrol agent said they found an undocumented man in a hidden room along with evidence of drug dealing.

According to the FBI, Marcos Gerardo Manzano Jr., 26, was arrested Monday at the Imperial Beach Border Patrol Station and stands accused of harboring illegal immigrants, including his father.

Around 6 a.m.Tuesday, a SWAT team raided Manzano's house in the 3600 block of Shooting Star Drive in San Ysidro and arrested suspected undocumented immigrant Jose Alfredo Garrido-Morena, also 26.


Yes, the first thought that crosses the mind is the "fox guarding the hen house" angle of this story. But.........

This guy was charged with "harboring illegal immigrants" in a country in which numerous elected and unelected officials (at state, county and city levels) are doing that very same thing in their designated districts and areas of authority by allowing illegals access to everything from drivers licences to college tuition.

"Sanctuary Cities" anyone?

I'm always a tad bit suspicious when stories like this one ("dear old dad") get national attention while the numerous stories of violent crimes committed by illegals is swept under the rug.
