Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh is a leading contender to be appointed legal adviser to the Department of State, two people familiar with the selection process told the [Yale Daily News]... In that position, Koh - a former assistant secretary of state and a leading expert on international law - would serve as principal counselor on all legal matters to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton LAW ’73...
Meanwhile: Koh's department pledged to defend New Haven against lawsuits related to that city's plan to distribute city ID cards to their residents, including illegal aliens. In fact, back in July 2007 Koh said the following about the opponents of that scheme:
I'm not sure how their life is diminished by people being able to prove they're part of the city.
What Koh can't figure out is that illegal immigration is a symptom of massive government corruption, as politicians turn a blind eye to or otherwise enable illegal activity for personal gain, either financial or electoral. It's also an indication of private corruption, as businesses such as banks attempt to profit from money that was earned illegally. Not to mention illegal immigration's involvement with crimes such as identity theft and so on.
What sort of law school dean wouldn't be able to figure that out or would support such a sleazy web of illegal activity?
