With the second step completed, allowing those particularly violent illegals to become increasingly brazen, the time has come for the third.
After a while, police are left with no choice other than to address the topic of exploding crime. Particularly thoughtful detectives suggest a lengthy undercover operation, which would ultimately lead to a series of massive stings on offending employers. This seems to be on the up and up until the corporate controlled politicians suggest otherwise. Claiming that an immigrant advocacy group can cook up a far more enlightened solution, an important seminar is scheduled to promote this.
The police department's top tier officials sit back and listen to some highly idealistic twentysomething attorney tell them, essentially, how to do their jobs. They learn that a good chance is had of earning the illegals' trust. All the department has to do is refrain from enforcing immigration laws, and the illegals will thank them by not being afraid to report criminal activity. A deputy commissioner observes that the illegals are already engaged in criminal activity simply by being in the United States, and he is promptly hushed.
Bowing to pressure from the business and political powers that be, the police pursue a strictly hands-off strategy to combating crime. The illegals, after learning of this, enjoy a good laugh. The droves of unemployed men and women whose jobs they took, however, react in a markedly different manner. Some form community watch groups with their employed neighbors, while others try to muster enough cash to find a place in the suburbs.
The pages on the calendar keep turning, and in every instance that they do, the city decreases in value: financially and morally. Strangely enough, the police are not feeling that promised love from illegals. Everyone, from the beat cop to the commissioner-in-chief, knows the department has been played masterfully. Nobody, however, dares to say a thing. The politicos would never allow such a horrendous act - not with those hefty checks being made out to their post-Citizens United candidate action committees.
As this goes on, step four is well underway, though most will never even notice it. Even after the damage has been done.
