The poster DK has shown nothing but contempt for US laws and now his contempt for law enforcement officers. Extreme concern for illegals that are arrested/detained for repeatedly breaking the law and the harshness of having to be deported - or worse yet, sent to prison and made to suffer. Yet, here we have a US citizen, doing his job, and DK rejoices over the possibility that he may lose his job. The hypocrisy is DK demanding evidence of prior violations for someone he believes is being railroaded or unjustly treated, but doesn't need to know the facts to rejoice where the ICE agent is concerned. Seems the ICE agent has already been tried and convicted in the Court of Mexifornia. IF that ICE agent does get dismiissed, I hope he, and his union backs him up, and brings a a major lawsuit against the government that is being run by a spineless eunuch.

This poster is a perfect example as to why Americans don't want illegals in the country or given a pathway to citizenship. Illegals are law breakers and/or support breaking the law, and I don't see that changing if, and when, they become legal. Their "legal" status isn't going to mean Americans are going to be more welcoming. Resentment will continue and what are they going to say? I'm legal now. I'm one of you. I'm almost a citizen.

Who are they going to cry to when they are caught committing a crime and US law applies to them??? If an illegal gets behind the wheel of a car DUI and runs down a family member, or they get robbed, beaten, shot, knifed, or raped by an illegal? Would they turn to the police who they have such contempt for? Will they demand justice and expect to go to the head of the line to get it? There will be thousands of illegals who won't apply for amnesty because of their criminal records and will remain in the US.

Do they really think that amnesty will mean the "laws" that have protected illegal repeat offenders up to now will still protect them and they won't be subject to the laws in place for citizens? They better get their head wrapped around the fact that US law will apply to them, right down to minor offenses that they always got a pass on.
You're right. Old habits are extremely hard to break. Illegals have grown so accustomed to flouting our laws, it is now as easy as breathing. Anyone who believes the stroke of a pen will magically transform career fraudsters into law-abiding citizens is beyond delusional. The crooks who now enjoy the extra benefit of paying no taxes, will not rejoice at the thought of having taxes withheld. Nor will the millions who scam the welfare system eagerly carry their weight.

Amnesty would destroy this country. We are already witnessing the devastation from the last amnesty, and it only involved 3 million. I hate to even think of another. Only a fool would think amnesty will solve our problems. But, sadly, we do have many foolish people in this country.

This is another illustration of why a federal consumption tax (sans exemptions for anyone regardless of low income level) would actually help us tax the illegal aliens whom are invisible to the current federal income tax code.
