158 alleged undocumented gang members nabbed | The Salt Lake Tribune

In what officials are calling the largest operation of its kind in Utah, a task force of federal and local law enforcement arrested 158 undocumented immigrants with alleged gang ties to face criminal charges and deportation.
Immigration and Customs Enforcementís Homeland Security Investigations teamed up with city and state police agencies to focus on transnational gang members and their associates. Of the 158 arrested, 93 are facing state and federal criminal charges, including solicitation to commit aggravated murder, forcible sexual abuse, and drug and firearms violations. Several were tagged for criminal re-entry, meaning they were previously deported but returned, and could face between two and 20 years in prison, said U.S. Attorney for Utah Carlie Christensen. The 93, if convicted, will serve jail or prison time and then be deported.

These are honest, hardworking gang members doing the gang activity real Americans won't do. Holder is going to sue the daylights out of Utah for being so racist!

No but some say that illegals are honest hard working people who only do jobs that Americans won't do.
No some may be hard working. Some do jobs that many americans won't do for the wages paid to an illegals. No illegal is honest because all are criminals and live a life of 1 criminal violation after another. In short they live a lie.
Are all illegals gang bangers? Of course not. But that post was no more lame than when pro-illegals claim that illegals only do jobs that americans wont or are too lazy to do. Its also lame when they describe illegals as honest people. Honest people don't live a life of lies, fraud, tax evasion and use false ID.

Well, life in prison will be better than going back to their hometowns. Let's see now: Three hot meals a day, wide screen TV sets, conjugal visits, a good library and gymnasium, etc.

Average cost to the US taxpayer is about $61/per day in Utah (2008 data) or roughly $22K/per year to house each illegal. What Utah should do is chop their feet off and deport them immediately...much cheaper for the taxpayer, and I'll bet those illegals won't be back again!

It's actually a sarcastic post that parodies the lame phrase pro-illegals love: "Illegal immigrants do the jobs Americans won't do."
Considering that some illegals are in the drug trade or are gang members, that statement is absurd and completely ignores the illegals who are dealing or shooting people.

I really shouldn't have to explain my posts, but I feel it was warranted.
