A Brooklyn judge is courting controversy with a new illustrated children's book that some critics are calling a thinly veiled anti-immigration screed.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Anti-Immigrant Judge?:
The man was commenting on illegal aliens, which are not recognized as immigrants under our immigration laws. Unfortunately, many immigration lawyers don't seem to understand this.
It is quite laudable that there are a few judges that understand that illicit border crossers are violating immigration law. It seems to be a rare occasion when judges actually enforce the laws as written and not violate their oath of office by making new law and nullifying Constitutionally valid law. Generally, judicial oaths go something like this:
''I, _ _ _ _ _ _, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _ _ _ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.''
Only recently a judge failed to deport an illegal alien on the possiblity that the law would change in the near future, a clear case of law nullification and a violation of his oath. He's a poster boy candidate for impeachment.

Calling this judge anti-immigrant when he evidently is only ant-illegal alien is truly an injustice. On the other hand, you are evidently a supporter of illegal aliens, people who violate immigration law by crossing our borders, misrepresent themselves as citizens, and use forged documents to gain illegal employment, not a good quality at all for an officer of the court.
