Police are accused of singling out immigrants.


A small number of rogue police officers are targeting undocumented immigrants in attempts to have them deported two days after House Bill 1804 went into effect, Tulsa Hispanic leaders said Friday.

Officers will always take the law into their own hands and cross the line, the Rev. Victor Orta said at a press conference.

Police officers recently pulled over a legal American Hispanic while he was driving with his girlfriend and later arrested him because he couldn't prove his identity, Orta said.

Russell Abbott, an attorney representing many illegal immigrants, also believes local law enforcement are racially profiling Hispanics.


Now how did I know the race card would be played.

The fact is most illegal aliens are Hispanic, who should the police be targeting?

I just got done typing a piece about "corruption", and how its worst feature is that it destroys public trust in institutions. In essence, illegal immigraton is a "corruption" of the immigration process. It destroys the "trust" that the guy walking down the street is supposed to be here....Maybe he is--but maybe he isn't. We don't know, because the citizenship process has become "corrupted", and we can no longer ASSUME we're all legal.

So, as in any other corruption case, we all suffer. Hispanics are probably bearing the brunt of this (believe me, this affects my own family--and I HATE it !)...but as the man said, if you're looking for illegals, who do you look for?

I swear I hate to see this happen--I hope it doesn't get out of hand--and I hope we can all do something about it. Just wanted to make the point that when we "corrupt" the system of law, other, more brutal systems take over. That's what "lawbreaking" is all about....degrading the everyday society we live in, making everything just a little harsher and tougher on everyone....

Attorneys like Abbott that defend these people must be bottom feeders that can't get clients anywhere else. Maybe Dick Cheney shot his Attorney in the face for a reason....LOL...

Exactly, who should they be looking at. It's a clear cut case of their attorney playing the race card as usual. All the legal hispanics should have documents and no fear of being deported. Maybe it's illegal friends or family members they are worried about.
