U.S. immigration officers arrested 367 undocumented immigrants in a country-wide blitz spanning several weeks in March and April. While many of those detained have criminal backgrounds, many are also not the “bad hombres” President Donald Trump said he was going to prioritize getting out of the country, raising concerns among civil rights groups who argue immigrants are being forced to live in fear.

I thought lawbreakers are supposed to be scared or, they're now "snowflakes"?

367 out of how many millions....doesn't seem worth the effort.
When that figure raises to thousands then I will be satisfied.
Personally I could give a rats pontoon about illegals living in fear...I think a lot of US citizens are living in fear of illegals doing them harm.

Who is an illegal and who isn't? Do you know? My elderly neighbor was born in Mexico. His wife was born in Puerto Rico (US Citizen). Their children and grandkids were all born in Florida. Anchor babies with a US Citizen Mother?

Was he ever Naturalized? I do not know but Abuelo did tell me that when he died he wanted to be buried in his own country of Mexico, which his children honored his wishes. That must have cost mucho dinero, but they owned a Roofing Company so I suppose they could afford it.

Point? Even if he did become a Naturalized Citizen, he still considered Mexico "his" country. I often wondered where his Puerto Rico born wife will choose to be buried when she dies? Mexico next to her husband? Puerto Rico with her relatives? Florida? Never talked much to her since her husband's English was better. My HS Spanish isn't that good.

There are lots of KNOWN illegal aliens out there, easy pickings for arrests. When word gets out the US ain't playing, MOST illegals will leave the US real fast with a few hard heads laying real low.

I suppose I'd prefer the resources to be placed where better used. In my opinion that'd be raiding businesses, perhaps having an ICE officer or two stationed in nearby jails etc. it seems like a lot of criminals are slippin through the cracks

There's millions here needing to go back.
Won't happen until businesses stop hiring them which means severe penalties, mandatory e-verify.
They will self-deport, saving us tons of money and time.
I don't see Trump even talking about that.

Elderly ones too who have been in this country for decades? Leaving their American born children and grandkids? Their American wives? Maybe you want to deport Americans for marrying and having children with illegals too? I saw that many times working with Migrant workers in Florida.

If they are illegal they should go, they had plenty of time to get their **** sorted out. It also sounds like you're referring to citizens, why would we deported them?
