Immigrant rights activists are asking the Bush administration to stop deporting undocumented immigrants picked up in stepped-up immigration enforcement.

The loud knocks on the door awoke Verónica Ruiz and her family at 5:59 a.m. Feb. 6.

''At first I thought it was a robbery, but then I knew,'' Ruiz said. ``Immigration agents were outside looking for me.''

Ruiz jumped out of bed, gathered her husband and two children in a room of their Miami-Dade apartment and hid for five hours as immigration officers outside shone flashlights through windows. Eventually, the officers left without making the arrest -- and Ruiz went into hiding.

The 31-year-old Colombian thus joined the nearly half a million fugitives nationwide who are ignoring deportation orders -- prime targets of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as agents step up efforts to track down immigrants evading expulsion.

There's your answer. If an illegal immigrant has committed a crime in their homeland, or is a fugitive of the United States, they need to be deported.

ALL ILLEGAL immigrants are fugitives in the United States. So "dusesean1986" has finally admitted that illegal immagrants should be deported. I have to say its about time! Good job "dusesean1986". I hope you relize what you have done "dusesean1986". You do relize anyone who enters this country illegaly is a fugitve...hence the term ILLEGAL Immagrant.

Blockbuster expends more effort to track down some 15 year old dweeb with and overdue copy of 'Halo 2' than we do to arrest illegal aliens.
