Trust me: when California truly goes broke---------then the illegals and their enablers will have hell to pay for their insolence.

When things blow there-----------it will be very ugly. Even MEChA will thrown the illegals under the bus to save their own hides I suspect.

Villaraigosa (aka=Mr. we clean your toilets) should have been trown out of office years ago.

The police who attacked these peaceful people should have gone to jail .
The money paid or about to be paid is not enough for the unprovoked attack the police engaged in.

When police are above the law than illegals are the least of the problems.

The police did not try nor do the right thing for the community.
They attacked without being provoked.

Yeah, poor people give $ millions to the Church The church ends up giving rather than getting from immigrants. The teachings to assist the stranger\ needy is the position of the church; LA is a sanctuary diocese [good or bad]. Also, most Mexicans are Catholic & Mahony defies any effort to restrict services to undocumented people. Its never going to happen.

The solution is putting resources on the border. If our nation can fight in Iraq with sophisticated surveillance why not apply the same technology on closing the border?

without question the lawsuit was to allow the police officers to uphold the written laws of the united states. the judge was wrong, as judges often are.

these "peaceful" people have every right to protest in their own country. they are breaking united states law by being in our country illegally. the police have every right to enforce the law. if they were not here, there would not be a problem to even address at all!

And anybody who was here illegally should have placed in jail as well.............

As for the cops: I have no use for flagrantly crooked ones either---------Mexico is living proof of bad cops.
