they are very pro american...the choctaws were also code talkers, just as the navajos in ww2....if they can accept the europeans, but do not accept the illegal immigrants, doesnt that speak volumes on the issue?
maybe i'm wrong, but it speaks it to me.
I am noticing that more and more Native Americans are voicing their contempt towards Hispanic or at least Mexican culture-------yet, many of the Latinos despite being of Aztec, etc heritage themselves are calling the N/A's racist.

Methinks the pot is calling the kettle black-------although, as has been mentioned in the past: Hispanic culture is very White Supremacist hence most Latinos trying to deny their indigenous heritage

The straw man argument about racial profiling is BS and of course racial profiling should be used since the majority of illegals in this country happen to be from south of the border. But, the police should also be racial profiling anyone that is Asian and Arab looking since they encompass many more illegals. Can't prove you are here legally? Tough luck and adios and good riddance. Actually, the more they protest the law being followed the more Americans finally see them for what they are and how racist and bigoted they are.

About 2,000 gather to protest Irving police program (broken link)
once upon a time, b4 the alamo, texans were very uptight about immigration enforcement too. they did not want to get kicked out of mexico.
things got rough. dont want it to happen here, i mean now that the shoe is on the other foot.
my suggestion is that we need to get in the way back machine. to refind religion and with it refind work ethic. then it will all go away. there is a reason mexican people are here, a whole lot of people that are already here, do not want to work. the big bosses that run this country want people here with work ethic. presto mexican people.

i am sure my patron saint, alan greenspan, could say this a lot better
but i am sure you get my drift

Companies that have had raids to round up illegal immigrants had scores of AMERICAN citizens lined up to apply for the jobs.

In addition to Irving Texas, let's not forget the great city of Farmers Branch, Texas and the great state of Oklahoma for having the courage to stand up for legal Americans and our rule of law. Many more cities and states will follow. Its unfortunate we have such a weak federal government that will not protect the legal citizens of America thereby putting states and cities in the position of having to do the federal government's job.

No one can tell them what to do, it's racist!
When I was going to school in Houston Texas, an illegal alien hauled ass across a road right in front of me. I struck the side of the car he was driving, and his car was incapacitated, and mine was totalled. He didn't want me to call the cops, but I did anyway. When the Harris County PD arrived, the guy actually had the nerve to hand the cop a PHOTOCOPY of an identification from MEXICO.

The cops weren't going to do anything. This guy was driving someone elses car, was an illegal alien, had no form of Official Identification, had no insurance (of course), and my car was totalled out. On top of that what did he get??? The cops were going to let him go! I started threatening the cops with calling the news media, and DEMANDED that this dirt bag be arrested and charged, and thrown in jail. I told them, "I am a US Citizen, I pay my taxes, I have Insurance, and I want that mother*.*.*. to go to jail". Another two police cars showed up and I finally made enough stink to get them to arrest and take him to jail.

Applause for Irving PD for a good job. However I was dissapointed in the article where it says:

"Police Chief Larry Boyd denies that police are trying to enforce immigration laws and says they are not targeting specific groups of people"

What it should say is that PC Larry Boyd is doing his JOB by helping to enforce immigration LAWS. As well, they SHOULD be targeting specific groups of people.

I say to damn bad if they are up in arms.
Free ride is over. We want our country back!
Ole Bill Clinton extended in 1997 amnesty 2 times and then in 2000 gave amnesty again to illegals. No wonder they have come here in groves!
Enough!
