If a Law is Unjust, I Might not Root for it to be Enforced

   Across my Facebook newsfeed comes this question:
   Do you support stripping federal tax dollars from sanctuary cities?
   And I reply:
   Perhaps most do. I don't. Many see this as a matter of upholding the rule of law. I see another side of it. I see the poor, the needy from other countries being offered sanctuary by certain cities. I cannot oppose that. If a person broke a law, and the law was unjust, would I be inclined not to root for him to be prosecuted? That's how I feel about this. I do not root for the poor and the needy -- those who come seeking jobs and freedom and to be rejoined with family -- I do not root for them to be prosecuted.
