I don't find surprising that the delivery guy trapped in the elevator
for 3 days was an illegal alien, but what is appalling is this statement that Michelle Malkin
pointed out in part of an article
When asked at the news conference if he ever tried to use the intercom or emergency bell, [the deliveryman] didn't answer. Police sources say his family told them he is in this country illegally.
City Councilman John Liu accused the NYPD of violating a Bloomberg administration policy not to reveal anyone's immigration status out of concern federal authorities might take action. The department responded that it did not give out the information, saying it can't be blamed if the news media use their sources.
Yeah, we wouldn't want federal agents to go after a criminal who has broken our federal laws. Why not just ignore those crossing state lines in crimes and murder of federal agents as well.
Michelle has a lot more on this sanctuary policy.

Ming Kung Chen is the name of the illegal in the elevator.
John Liu is the name of the councilman.
I leave it to the average reader to take it from there.
And one more thing: One might be excused for being politically incorrect and noticing the bellicose nationalism of the mainland Chinese, not only regarding Taiwan, but e.g. also on display recently in the attacks on the Japanese embassy and Japanese interests in China, and (if you can remember back that far) when the US surveillance plane was downed, and then wondering if it is really a good idea for the US to have in its midst millions of largely unassimiliated Chinese immigrants, for whom ethnicity seems a more important tie than the rule of law in America. Just where do the loyalties of these people lie, anyway?
