Did anyone ever happen to catch this on television?

It's not supposed to be easy for uneducated, unskilled workers to enter the U.S. That's how the law is written, to limit the entry of unskilled workers. How many would you let in? Millions? (They're already here). 30 million? 40 million? ANYONE who wants to come?

Awshucks, they have such a tough life in Mexico, let's just let them all come in at will. Oops, we're already doing that.

Illegal aliens come to the U.S. to live; it's not like they're coming to work for awhile and then going back.

Except, those "witches" didnt do anything wrong and were hung or burned at the stake, here we have illegals ( that break laws) being dropped off. Huge difference.

This is very racist, it's ok to prosecute illegal immigrants, but this is unacceptable. Deceiving men into thinking theirs work, and then taking them to an immigration office. I would feel absolutely horribe if I were involved with this action. IF I WERE THE POLICE I'D PROSECUTE THIS TO THE FULLEST.

I WOULD FULLY PROSECUTE THIS AS A HATE CRIME. MAKE THE PERSON APOLOGIZE, ATTEND A LATINO GROUP, PERFORM COMMUNITY SERVICE, AND PLACE THEM IN AN 8 by 11 FOR 90 DAYS. That's not cool AT ALL.

None of that is racist, , it doesnt matter if they are white, brown, yellow or whatever, they are ILLEGAL, it is called being FED UP. The ones that need prosecuting are the illegals, not the ones that dropped them off at the ICE office. Nothing illegal about what they did. they owe US the apology not the other way around

Those actions are nothing more than cruel...Tricking people to have them be deported, and yelling "la migra" in front of them...That's a lack of maturity...and full on disrespect..not to mention undeniable racism. That is not prosecuting illegal crossers, those are evil pranks. Yeah it doesn't matter what race they are, it's a disgrace to all human beings.

A judge would give a hefty sentence to both actions. Both are CRUEL PUNISHMENT TO MANKIND.
