From Conservative Tribune: Law enforcement officers have always had a pretty tough and demanding, and usually thankless job.
With the recent assault on law enforcement by the Obama administration, a biased media, and a deliberately misled public, that job has gotten even tougher.
As such, some police departments have been having trouble keeping their ranks filled, and some have resorted to hiring immigrants to serve as officers on the beat.
While police departments have long allowed green-card holders and permanent legal residents to hold jobs as police officers, much like the military, some departments are now hiring those who merely hold a temporary work permit.
