Saturday night a 24 year old trooper was killed on a traffic stop. By two teenage
Hispanics from Texas. Not known if they are illegal yet. They were thought to be transporting drugs. They were caught within hours of the shooting. A few weeks ago a family in Nashville was killed by a drunk illegal in a traffic accident. Who had I think four DUI's. Also in Nashville a young pregnant woman was shot five times by illegals who thought they had hit her in a traffic accident.

We had a trooper get killed back in my hometown about 2 years ago. It was an illegal who had been arrested multiple times and deported. Sadly, this is not a rare case...

Doesn't this just say it all:
Illegal immigrants who were caught but released in the United States may have been re-arrested as many as six times, Justice Department data released Monday indicates.

The findings by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine are based on a sampling of 100 illegal immigrants arrested by local and state authorities in 2004, the latest complete data available. They show that 73 of the 100 immigrants were arrested, collectively, 429 timesóranging from traffic tickets to weapons and drug charges.

Ah but, for some we have no problem they deserve too be here.Some say they commit no crime then, why is it every day we here of problems they are causing our country. Yesterday and today turning on the T.V. hispanics kill an officer or sexual assualt on a child. Not to say Americans don't commit crime but, they are American and they can't flee back to another country so, there is a chance for justice.

Here is a solution:

Catch an illegal immigrant
Send him/her to Iraq
Put a gun in his/her hand
Point in the direction you want him/her to shoot
Leave

Solves two problems at once!

Your point?? Would you like me to start listing the crimes caused by LEGAL citizens?? Nah, I didn't think so... Yes, crime is a big problem all over the country (and world), but it's being committed by people of every nationality.

Btw, I read 4 stories on the incident, and NOTHING was mentioned about their immigration status... and since they're both teenagers & being held in a U.S. court until the hearing, I would suspect they are legal Americans - just like you & me.

This wouldn't be a precedent in the US. This is precisely what we did to the Irish in the 1860's during our Civil War.
