I am telling you there are alot of fed up angry people out there. This needs to get under control before more tragedy happens, people need to open their eyes and get a handle on the illegal issue before more people get hurt or killed.

It's only going to get worse.

They arrested 2 men the other day, who were Trafficking these illegals.

The illegals are being detained til trial. I wonder if they'll actually get deported or just let loose on the streets, as it has happened before.

Does it matter? Those same men will be on the street within a few weeks if we deport them anyway. These people are persistent and many will try several times before they ultimately end up here in the US illegally. It all comes down to the border being so porous. We will read more and more stories like this unfortunately, until serious action is taken by our govt.

Do you think there may be a connection here with these killings. The Klan is picking up some speed.

Not to sound racist, But it is about time someone took control of the situation. Maybe if a few more get shot, The goverment will wake up and act. Life of the few for the life of the many fair trade. If this is what it takes so be it. I hope who did it rots in jail. But at the same time I am glad it finally happened.

No one was shot but, there's been 10-12 home invasions in the past couple days on hispanics around the Nashville area here.

How many crimes have been committed by people of other races??

(I assume you mean by Hispanics, not on them...)
