The correct version is the one that quotes the F.A.I.R. study:

"1 Today, criminal aliens account for over 29 percent of prisoners in Federal Bureau of Prisons facilities and a higher share of all federal prison inmates."

(Higher percentage but it's probably a more recent study.)

criminal Aliens do not belong here, over half of those criminal aliens in prison are illegal. Others just run across the border to avoid prison.

Again we are not talking about ALL latinos, we are talking about ILLEGALS, why do you keep referencing all latinos in general?[/quote]


Ok well 10-20 million, no one has the ability to stereotype or generalize even that.

That's a very good observation UB.. These guys who do stats and report stats can get a little cagey when presenting them

So if an American citizen hits your car and drives away, they are going to catch him quicker than they catch serial killers??!!

I just can't stop laughing...
Might I point out that if an American citizen hits my car I can report the plate numbers. Now assuming it's not stolen I'll have direct access to this person. An illegal hits my car? Well I wonder if I'd ever find them?

And I find it interesting that you would compare traffic violations to serial killers.

I live in Arizona. I have had some of these people do work for me. They are neither drunk nor any of the other horrible allegations leveled at them. They do very good work at a good wage.

Now, are some of them illegal? I don't know. Was the guy who'd had a couple who ripped my fender off illegal? I don't know. Was the cop at fault who let him drive away after I pointed out he smelled like alcohol at fault? Probably, and the police officer was an American.

Honestly, I don't care for their system down there, BUT THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS. Enough with the hate. How many of you celebrate the holiday season? No time for hate.

All I can say is that you better shred your bills and such. You never know when you might want your Social Security benefits. They're so willing to march for their "rights" here in the US. Why don't they go back to Mexico and change their nation instead of coming here and draining us of our livelihood?

So once they're here you just say "Oh well, you're already here so I might as well accept you!"? They're never going to stop coming until we make them. Eventually we will be Mexico.

Umm... the people commit the illegal immigration... I guarantee the people angry with the illegals are equally angry, if not more so, with the government. It's just that this thread is about the people. I don't know how you can't be angry with the person who commits the crime. If someone breaks into your house are you angry with the government that allows it or the person? The answer is both.

An 18-month joint investigation between federal and state law enforcement called Operation Crooked Highway has been cracking down on those who are selling drivers licenses to illegal aliens. In one incident a Pakistani illegal alien, Syed Abbas Parvez, was detained for transporting an illegal alien from Georgia with the explicit purpose of buying them a driver licenses

Tuesday, Officers in Murfreesboro led Bruce Conklin away in handcuffs. He and Teresa Jones are former workers at the drivers license station. They're charged with accepting thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for providing driver licenses and drivers certificates to those who would otherwise be ineligible.

The owner of Winchester Driving School, Bryan Guess, is accused of bribing one of the examiners in exchange for drivers license or improper driving certificates for the school.

Two others are charged with selling improper driving certificates, and sixth person is charged with transporting illegal aliens to obtain the improper driving documents.


The sign at the private driver’s school was ironically written in Spanish. State law allows approved third-party businesses to administer the written as well as road tests for Tennessee drivers licenses.

Another part of Operation Crooked Highway charges Syed Abbas Parvez, alleged to be an illegal alien from Pakistan, with transporting another alleged illegal alien from Georgia to obtain a Tennessee license. $1,100 was reportedly paid to the school to receive fake proof of residency documents and a Tennessee drivers license.

Another party named in the indictment is Shun Gao who works at a Murfreesboro Chinese Restaurant under the name of Gordon. Gao allegedly paid the school approximately $32,000 in cash for third party certificates for around 50 clients.


You can see how easy it is for illegals to get Drivers License and documents to say they are Legal Immigrants.. just some cash is all you need.
