Judge Says Illegal Alien ID Thieves' Privacy Violated

The sign outside hell, in Dante's Inferno reads, "Abandon all hope, you who enter here"...I'm just sayin'....
H/T Judicial Watch
Get this:

More than 1,300 illegal immigrants who used fake or stolen Social Security numbers to file taxes will face no consequences because their privacy rights were violated by the local authorities who busted them.

A judge ruled this week that the search of a north central Colorado tax preparer suspected of having an unusually large illegal alien clientele was illegal. That means that at least 1,300 illegal immigrants who filed tax returns with fake or stolen Social Security numbers will not be charged. (more)

The sheriff and district attorney in Weld County caught the violators by searching thousands of federal income tax returns at the Greeley office of a tax preparer that caters to illegal aliens. Dozens have been arrested and charged with identity theft or criminal impersonation but this week’s ruling will likely set them free.

Wow. That's rich. It's seriously like something straight out of "Alice in Wonderland"--We're all at the table of the Mad Hatter.

No, it is what it means to have rule by law and constitutional protections.

I am all for the rule by law and constitutional protections but this sounds a little like the burgler suing the homeowner because he was injured while in the house.
I agree there is a fine line to walk while upholding the laws but the law was broken MANY times here. Is it right to ignore that for what is in fact a technicality? Hasn't the Supreme Court ruled on something similar? Those in the know please correct me.
