The raids began on Sept. 1, 2006, and lasted for several weeks. They were intended to locate unauthorized immigrants who worked at a poultry plant in Stillmore, a town of about 1,000 people in Emanuel County. But rather than conduct a raid only at the plant, dozens of agents fanned out across residential areas in three counties — stopping motorists, breaking into homes and threatening people with tear gas and guns. Hundreds were terrorized. Many fled into the woods.

Aww. The poor little thing. But wait! Why would an AMERICAN CITIZEN fear that ICE might come back?

STOP THE ETHNIC CLEANSING!

NAZIS!

TERRORISTS!

*rolls eyes*

I see no corroborated facts in that story. A lot of the typical BS rhetoric, but nothing that supports her story. A fifteen year old girl being frightened does not amount to being terrorized.

Federal agents are not allowed to "target American citizens of Mexican descent" solely because of their skin color. My wife and kids have that skin color, and they're still here.
(In fact, we just passed through US customs yesterday, in a group of 43 family members of 4 or 5 different colors, and NOBODY in our group was refused entry into the US...for reasons of skin color, or any OTHER reason).

Federal agents ARE allowed to target American citizens of Mexican descent (or any OTHER American citizens, of ANY descent, as well), IF they are believed guilty of a crime. They are ALSO allowed to target persons illegally in the USA.

If Mancha's story is correct: she definitely has a case.

What I find interesting is no mention of her father; maybe he is here illegally and that is being covered up.

I smell a rat here.

If the story is correct I think a apology and compensation should be in order.
