Not the time or the place.
I wouldn't single out ANYBODY. I would suggest that they get names and addresses of EVERYONE and work the info from there. After all, they can't be profiling, now can they?

Remember that since the authorities will (should) be ID'ing everyone in the refugee centers already; it would be be a simple matter to ferret out any obvious illegals along with 'regular' American miscreants

Actually, that's a bit of a misnomer. I've lived in Houston and the Rio Grande Valley. Now the Rio Grande Valley has more than its fair share of welfare grubbers, however, the vast majority are legal citizens. Houston, on the other hand has a lot of illegals. Ever been to the Rio Grande Valley? You would quickly understand why most who cross the border choose to go elsewhere.

And arrest any FEMA employees that assists them, i.e., buys them hotel rooms, for aiding and abetting.

Makes perfect sense to me! Would you NOT arrest a Child Molester or a Murderer?

Common Criminals are Common Criminals regardless of the weather!

1.3 million left this year for Mexico as employeers won't hire them without the proper ID's any longer...enforce the rules they leave.
My question is why do they have to have papers to get back into Mexico...they had no stinkin' papers to get in to the US?

In a word? Yes they should be arrested and deported. The Hurricane does not change their status.

Well folks, it doesn't get any more pathetic than this. Comparing somebody who's here illegally to child molesters and murders.

While we're at it, lets compare anyone who's ever gone over the speed limit (the law is the law is the law, after all) to serial rapist also. Crime is crime.

Well, they'll just have to hire legal citizens. Legal citizens were denied the opportunity to rebuild New Orleans. The greedy construction companies preferred cheap illegal labor.
