They can start any time, I for one won't be fazed. Might have to stock up on beer though so if they could give us a 20 minute warning, that'd be nice.

Dealing with the actual illegal aliens does not concern me as much as putting the illegal alien apologists in their place.

Terrible thing to contemplate....but at LEAST we shouldn't be surprised. This is what LOTS of us on this forum have been warning about for MONTHS now (and for LONGER, off the forum)...that lax law enforcement doesn't lead to respect or gratitude, it leads to a false sense of entitlement. Amnesty for lawbreakers doesn't produce gratitude, it produces a sense of emboldedness, and sparks still MORE demands for MORE amnesties, and BIGGER ones. And once a person is allowed to 'squat' illegally, ANYWHERE, human nature dictates the person will RAPIDLY begin to feel a "right" to what he sees as "his". At that point, it's probably true, that evicting the person COULD result in violence.

Something that should NEVER have been allowed to develop in the FIRST place, and SHOULD have been remedied 10 years ago. That's what happens when laws are ignored, elected officials refuse to 'deal with' unpleasant facts. etc.

Ineffective, half-hearted law enforcement leads to anger, resentment, vigilantiism. Take care of things NOW, calmly and professionally...or take care of much BIGGER things, LATER, with the help of the 'loonies' and the 'hotheads'....and now, it's "later".
