"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    So much for Costa’s erstwhile support for the 10th Amendment. I must have missed that section in the U.S. Constitution about commanding local officials to become unpaid Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Heck, since there’s nothing stopping the feds from doing as they like, why not arrest Providence animal control officers too! Pretty sure they aren’t enforcing immigration law either.

    Apparently Costa is all for the 10th Amendment… under Democratic leadership.
