I don't think you can pretend there is some actual solution on issues like Obamacare that will result in everyone being happy. For everyone receiving a benefit, there will be someone else getting the bill. As Thomas Sowell said, "There are no solutions. Only trade-offs".
Referring to someone as a "law-abiding illegal immigrant" strikes me as a contradictrion in terms.

I don’t disagree that justice should be tempered with mercy; but that doesn’t extend to pretending that infiltrating our borders and illegally taking up residence doesn’t amount to breaking our laws. There may be cases where we choose to treat certain lawbreakers leniently for various reasons, but that detracts nothing from the fact that we need to recognize that they are in fact in violation of the law. When a president decides not to enforce the law for political reasons, or when a city styles itself as a “sanctuary” for feel-good purposes, it ultimately erodes the rule of law in favor of arbitrary power. And that erosion is ultimately more dangerous than any immigrant bogeymen Mr. Trump could imagine.
This ordinance just passed, and it is inclear exactly what it means in some instances with the CTholic Chirch here in town.
They are idiots.
As as an aside I have a friend who is president of their HOA. When she took the job she was given the advice to not make exceptions to the rules because it opens a can of worms and everyone is unhappy. I guess that is what has happened here. People turning a blind eye and now dealing with the consequences. I guess when you break the law there should be an expectation someday you will have to pay the piper. I guess a lot of people didn't think it would happen after so long or someone would grant amnesty.
Some of the things this odd, ill conceived city law does is to forbid landlords from refusing to rent to abortion clinics. Because there are so many abortion clinics needing spaces around here. Not!
The new law forbids discrimination in employement and renting to those usng birth control and to those whose have had an abortion.
there must be something in the law about freedom of expression about all forms of reproduction because the Catholic
Church is concerned they may not be able to require their employees not promote birth control and in their work,with children and etc.
It is hard for me to explain what this law does because it is simply ridiculous.
