Everybody knows that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sees to it that his city doesn’t enforce federal immigration laws, and he’s proud of it:
Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.

But that defense of illegal behavior won’t extend to citizens trying to make a living against direct public orders, as the mayor proved by promoting a website for anybody who wants to snitch:
To protect our communities, non-essential businesses must remain closed during our Safer at Home emergency order. To report non-essential businesses that are operating illegally, visit: https://t.co/bgKX7F8JmF. pic.twitter.com/7cyPU9Taof

Snitches get rewards. Who else in history was ratting out their neighbors? ?

Weird how that works, right?
Saaayyyyy…what if the business is operated by illegal aliens, so if I report on them they risk being deported?! Isn't that the ultimate betrayal?! Such a dilemma!

That’s the ultimate progressive mayor dilemma!
