Yes, I watched the video and noticed that. Even though the article did explain that it's almost all involving illegals, the only kidnapper they would show did not appear to be illegal but an American. At least we assume he was American but looks can be deceiving. How can we tell just by looking he's not an illegal?

I think that is due to ultra-political correctness so that it's okay to make it seem that it's American blacks doing all the kidnap for ransom that's going on in Phoenix. They don't want to leave the impression it might be foreigners behind these crimes.

But then again, maybe it was for the impact of the words of the kidnapper and victim.

Most Americans watching the video wouldn't get it if the words spoken were in Spanish "me van a matar!!!" doesn't mean much to many Americans so the black dude speaking English was better for the story.

How many of those kidnapped were Americans, it's a drug war. They aren't even innocent illegals, they are mostly going after each other for drugs. I saw the same on the east coast between motorcycle gangs over Meth.

This is no reason to suspend the requirement for Probable Cause to challenge someones citizenship

Stormfront has taken over Arizona

Enforcement has doubled in the past year and if we didn't have to spend millions tearing down that scam of a virtual wall there would be more mooney available.
You can't tear down a "virtual" wall. The virtual wall was technology to seek out illegal entry in our country. It was not a physical barrier. It had some bugs in it. Do you also think we should get rid of our military because it costs money to have them? If you want a safe and secure country manpower and technology are necessary to acheive that goal.
