He determined that he had to dramatically change his posturetoward immigrants: yes, the law was important and he was bound as Sheriff to enforce state law, but when the law was separating families, as a Christian he had to speak up for better laws, which would respect the dignity of immigrants, maintain the unity of the nuclear family, and restore the rule of law to a system that, through decades of selective non-enforcement, had lost its meaning.
