Your leaving out the main issue.

Thats like saying

"Some fear that DUI checkpoints may target drunk drivers"

or

"Some fear that home alarms are an attack on burglars"


I mean, when you COMMIT A CRIME, you SHOULD EXPECT FEAR!

They force themselves upon us, and yet demand special considerations.
Were I hispanic I would have a real bone with the illegals for creating this enviroment.
In short I would be ratting every illegal I crossed paths with.

Again if you have done nothing wrong and have all the proper paper work than you have nothing to fear, I have noticed that people that act out of fear are anger have something to hide.

Not at all....
It is like saying I live in an all white neighborhood where rednecks also live. I hate that those rednecks give me a bad rep because I live in the same town.
Just because the Dukes of hazzard yell yehaw and blast dixie from their carhorns doesn't mean that its cool.
Illegals are the cause of the animosity. Illegals are the cause of added check points.
Place blame where it belongs.....
Would you not be irked if a house accross from yours became a crack house and the cops started watching your neighborhood? What if the owners before you knew what they did made friends with you and now you also became suspect? I would blame those criminals across the street not the cops.
Another fact is that many legal hispanics know illegals and often help support the activitey by not reporting...
I say check points where the concentration of illegals are highest. Remove the safe routes, safe havens.

I was simply responding to your post, in which you mentioned you don't have to worry about non-English-speaking illegals taking your job. It gave me the impression that you arenít concerned for others whose jobs may be in jeopardy due to illegal immigration. I apologize if I misunderstood your point.

Quite true...............

Judging by just this Forum; the harder ICE is coming down on the illegals----------the more strident the rhetoric from their supporters.

Hispanics act like they are all being deported, and its not even close to being true. Its just sickening. And many Democrats believe that Hispanic Americans are being forced to live in fear. If you have nothing to hide, why would you fear anything?

I have never said that we do not have a problem with immigration and the large amounts of illegals here. I feel that there needs to be resolution
that will benefit all. I do not have a problem with Anti-illegals, the ones I do have a problem with, are the ones that have a deep and hostility towards them, and do wish them harm. My feelings on that segment will never change, and like I have said before, I will never turn them into the border patrol and if they make it through, more power to them.

After all, what do you care if the local hospital goes bankrupt?
