More ethnocentric dribble courtesy of those in denial of the massive number of heinous crimes perpetrated by those of their raza, primarily from SOB.

The pro illegal alien enablers are starting to see the writing on the wall (shifting public opinion) and are trying to head off the impending tsunami---------rigorous enforcement of immigration law up and including profiling.
