[snark on] Gee, I hope they didn't separate any families. I'd rather let a
dope dealer skate than take him away from his children.
Just 25? They must not have tried very hard. I'll bet there are more illegal
aliens than that waiting at Home Depot right now to take a job an unemployed
American doesn't want.
Re: Bryan | 7:15 p.m. June 21, 2011 Question is how many of those 25
illegal aliens at Home Depot have stolen or forged social security numbers?
I think I would prefer we lock up murders and sex offenders than deport them. I
bet they just come right back since our borders are not secure. Maybe, we could
charge their countries for the cost of prison instead.
....."tracking down fugitives who game our nations immigration
system"? Aren't they ALL "gaming our nations immigration
system"?We appreciate the efforts of ICE, but they're ARRIVING
faster than 25 at a time. At that rate it will take a long time to catch up.
Its a good start. Now lets really get going with an intensive 'Catch &
"A total of 22 percent were fugitives with outstanding deportation orders
who had failed to leave the country." You mean to say that they didn't
leave on their honor as good and honorable people. They should have been in jail
before being deported, and then flown back to the capitol of their country of
origin. I doubt that the SLC Chief of police would consider these offenses to be
any worse than parking tickets scofflaws that people don't pay.
Although this was a worthwhile, if miniscule, start, it is typical Obama
political theater.While making great press releases about how tough
they are on [really bad, dangerous, repeat violator] illegals, they quietly
released new guidelines for ICE, which basically implements the
"DREAM" Act which is pretty much amnesty or at least a "keep put
of jail free" card for millions of illegals if they remotely fit into many
broad categories.Might as well just stop wasting money on ICE since
the won;t be able to kick many people out, and won't be allowed to stop even the
most blatant illegal entry into our country. Might as well just surrender to
Mexico while we are giving up our national sovereignty.
A good article - as far as it goes. But, not one word about ID theft though,
and in light of the fact that EVERY ONE of these illegal aliens have stolen
someone's SSN to be able to work. Either that, or some greedy employer is not
paying the taxes they should be paying.Then of course, there is the
100,000 unemployed citizens in this country. Don't they deserve a chance for
Sorry! I meant 100,000 plus unemployed - in OUR state!
