I think the public is uneducated about the realities, mostly because the Democrat party/leftist media/leftist lobby has done a great job of blurring the lines between legal immigration and illegal immigration. They have done such a great job, the public doesn't really think about what it means for cities to be harboring illegal aliens arrested for hard crimes.

I happened to switch over to Planet Money on the radio the other day, and in the course of 5 minutes, they used the word 'immigrants' to describe illegal aliens living in LA, who according to their reporting, are scared that they will be deported. It's outrageous that they purposely blur the lines in an attempt to confuse the public.

If the left isn't for open borders, they sure have a funny way of showing it. If they are for open borders, then they should come out and say so!

12 people on a jury acquitted him, just like juries acquit people every day all over the United States, I'm not sure why that would make you smack yourself

One of the unintended consequences (altho to some in ICE this is probably intentional) will be that people who are undocumented will not report crimes nor volunteer to be witnesses in crime cases for fear of being locked up because they don't have papers. It is especially despicable when battered women are faced with this decision.

I personally have no problem with rounding up criminal illegals at court houses and deporting them. How many of them keep coming back and what is their incentive to come back? Is it jobs? No jobs, no incentive. Greedy companies can raise their wages and attract American's, but do they want to? Would they rather have a cheap work force to increase their bottom line? How many of these companies have super PAC money and politicians in their back pocket?

Yeah go ahead and round them up, deport them, and continue the cycle. Once illegals realize that there is nothing here for them, they will quit coming.

But please tell me how many Americans are lining up and dying to do these jobs but can't get them because illegals are doing them
I have done the following jobs in the past:

mopped floors
washed dishes
cleaned toilets
changed diapers
prepared food
waited tables

I also did my own yard work, cleaned my own house and did my own laundry

My husband has had jobs where he:

did groundskeeping
prepared food
did construction
picked crops
milked cows
mucked stalls
drove trucks

We are both American citizens, and none of these jobs were "beneath us."

I disagree that we should protect illegal aliens (not undocumented) who are law breakers to report on other law breakers. There are a lot more illegal alien lawbreakers in this country than any crimes they might report or witness committed by citizens. Protecting millions to catch a few others makes no sense to me.

How are illegal aliens credible witnesses? Another fallacy.

If they were really that helpful, LA neighborhoods like East LA and Pacoima would not look the way they look. Those areas are loaded with illegals and havens for crime. Whoever is illegal and posing as witnesses are doing a lousy job
