“I feel like this is terrorism against our people,” Bonilla added. “They feel so harassed — they’re so uncomfortable. I spoke with a client yesterday who said she hasn’t bought food because she’s so afraid to go out.”

Obama's Immigration Raids Are Turning Latino Communities Into Ghost Towns | ThinkProgress

I don't see the big deal here since illegal aliens ARE lawbreakers.

...So? If those Latino communities are illegal alien communities, then they deserve to be ghost towns. I'm not saying all of them are, but if those raids are in certain places, then it's a good thing they're ghost towns.

They came here illegally. Throw them back down south of the border.

They should feel "so uncomfortable" --- after all, they have no business being here. They deserve to be harassed as does anyone who breaks the law.

I see that the article interviewed illegals in Wheaton, MD --- a place that has been destroyed by illegal immigration. I find it ironic with MD being a sanctuary state for illegals, that the illegals are running scared (as well they should be). All those businesses that are losing customers---well, if a business either hires illegals or caters to illegals, it is a diseased business and needs to die.

They do love the illegals. Did you notice that the article said they are only going after illegals who came here after May 2014? Or didn't you read it? What's that all about? Why aren't they going after all illegals? If you're trying to make a case for Obama being tough on illegals, try again. Besides, MD is still a sanctuary state for them.

From what I understand only those illegals from Central America who tried to claim refugee status but failed to prove their case were targeted as they already had orders of removal from our country. Naturally, they defied those orders and hid. Those who support illegal aliens or are here illegally themselves make crazy claims that innocent legal Latinos will be targeted and they make those claims to protect the illegal kind. Their tactics fool no one. Anyone here legally would be able to prove it and would have nothing to worry about so it's all smoke and mirrors.

What raids? I don't believe it for a moment. It's Think Progress. They want people to think Obama is so strong on border enforcement while at the same time painting it as a horrible offense that these poor people are being deported and the fear is so great they don't even get food. Please!

Well; that WILL backfire on TP since that kind of reporting WILL just get use anti illegal alien people to push harder for mass deportations IMHO.

Are you actually going to pretend that Democrats DON'T love illegal immigration?

LOL!

It was a "token" amount, if any, to make the Democratic party look a little better.

Oh, they love "illegal immigration", they love the illegal drugs coming in, the cheap workers and most importantly, the potential VOTES! Illegal aliens with stolen IDs do vote now.
