Legally, though, he's not guilty and saying he's guilty is slander...for which he can sue.

Umn...they were "imported" first. And the overblown "illegal" thing is only a civil NOT criminal offense.

I wonder if there is a black police officer who racial profiles in the lily-white suburbs? That would be interesting.

WHAT?!?!?!? The whole process from start to finish is a CRIMINAL offense.

Human trafficing, Document fraud, ILLEGALLY not paying alltaxes due to the U.S., and on and on and on....

Even if it WAS just a "civil" crime, it would STILL be against the laws of the U.S., a sovereign nation.

Based on the obvious racial tone of your above post, it's obvious you are a big fan of ALL entitlement programs. There will hopefully be enough room on all subsequent deportation buses to squeeze you on one too. :-)

P.S. YOUR own people SOLD your people to the U.S. to begin with, so quit soley blaming my white ancestors. For the record, I've never owned a slave nor have you ever been one. :-)

Yes; the slaves were imported--------legally under the laws of that era.

And; the slaves were all granted American citizenship once emancipated.

I knew of at least one Black cop who did just that outside of Washington DC------Arlington 30 years ago was mostly White.

So, if you were walking down the street and police stop you, but let the other person (of a non-profiled color) walk by, and then the next stop they do the same thing to you and let the other person go by again... repeatedly.

Is that equal treatment?
It's equal treatment of all the suspects police are searching for, going by descriptions; physical, accent, etc.

Illegal alien is the reason. Guess you wouldn't want to be a policeman.

Hmmm well if it comes to asking for "OUR" country back then I guess the Mexicans does have a right to be here after all. Has anyone ever studied on the past history of the United States and why and how the Mexicans ALL ended up in Mexico oppose to the Southwest United States they once occupied before being forced out? How about the annexation of Americans in Texas which eventually led to the Mexican American war?

I wonder where America would be if the Indians had the same atitude and mentality or if the Mexicans did not want to allow the annexation of the Southwest. Oh I forgot, we would have slaughtered them and take it away as we did in the past.

I've come to realize that when it comes to matters of race and immigrants, the real bigots comes out with guns drawn. So sad As an American I sometimes am so ashamed of the selifishness and mentality of so many of us.

Why on earth are we targeting the Mexicans as if they are the only illegal immigrants here. Listen people we have illegal immigrants from Africa, Europe, Asia, The Americas (including Canada), the Caribbeans etc....Mexicans are NOT the only illegal immigrants, they are NOT the first illegal immigrants and they sure as heck won't be the last. Funny I don't see anyone condemning the amount of illegal Cubans coming into this country and being granted status...Yet they commit just as much or even more crime in this country as any other illegal immigrants. Stop targeting the Mexicans, they should have just as much rights as the Cubans.... They are even more oppressed the the Cubans..but because of our hate for Castro we give the Cubans more of an advantage. And we claim not to be biased.

I don't post anything in my profile. She doesn't have to have American Indian in her profile to BE an American Indian. Her failure to list that information does not make her a liar.
