Not to mention various people in this thread have endorsed calling ICE on a group of Hispanics with no reason to suspect them of any criminal activity whatsoever.

I hope there's a knock at that little door somewhere up there in your head, because someone seems to have turned the light off and forgot about it.

when there is a 97% or so chance they are illegal, Sure.. don't just knock on the door, break the damn door down...

They will all be legal soon, so ICE will be out of business.

Any updates on our contest? Who has dropped the dime on a few illegals?

I think the OP is still in the lead...

C'mon folks, do you part for your country, give the boot to an illegal alien today! You will feel better and save a few tax dollars for your country to
waste somewhere else.

Agreed, which is why I have no problem following up the leads I get. I am often amazed by those who think cyberspace renders them anonymous.

Oh, like "illegals" don't pay taxes? They pay property, sales, income, school taxes, just like you.

But whose identity are they using?
How many or what % pay the items that you listed?
Unlike legal immigrants it would appear that the illegals have no respect for our laws. So just what exactly entitles them to any special consideration?

It's a troll. Please don't feed it.

Back that "97% chance" thing up with statistics from an official non biased organization or I'm afraid I'll have to assume you've pulled it out of your arse.

Hispanic Americans make up roughly 15% of the population, which in a country of 300,000,000 would make 45,000,000. ICE and HomeSec agree that the number of illegal immigrants is 11.8m, but I'll round up to 12,000,000 for the sake of argument. That would equal 25% or 1/4.

But let's take it further, 52% of Hispanic Americans self identify as White. Take the other 48% and you have 21.6 million that do not identify as White. Assuming that all 12,000,000 of the illegal immigrants are of mixed or native descent and police profile predominantly Hispanics who appear to be of mixed or native descent, that would make for a difference of 55%, or little more than 1/2.

That isn't even taking into account that both the number of Hispanics, number of Hispanics of any given racial descent, and number of Hispanic illegal immigrants varies even among Southwestern states.

So the bottom line is that, whoever is right, you most certainly are wrong. And I can be content with that.

They are also responsible for acts like the biting a man's thumb off...great folks your illegals! http://www.midwestfreepress.com/2009/03/08/new-orleans-man-attacked-by-illegal-immigrants/ (broken link)

We will be happy to save you a seat on the bus to Illegaland! Maybe you are one? Please send me your phone # on a PM so I can have ICE check you out! . They will have ticket in hand for your bus ride.

Seriously, you are the first I've seen defending their position, how do you justify that?

Don't you want your kids/grand kids to grow up with a chance at a decent life? Don't you realize that illegals are a drain on our economy that we can't afford? Is it OK with you that they flaunt our laws? Kill taxpaying Americans? None of that matters? Instead you would open the floodgates and let 'em in???

You're mad? You don't know the half of it! And what you don't realize is that there are millions who think as I do on this topic!
Kill taxpaying americans? trust me, most americans are murdered by other americans, we'd be better off deporting them as opposed to hunting down suspected illegals! And just because many of us think the OP's suggestions are way too extreme, not to mention blatantly racist, that doesn't mean anybody wants the "floodgates" to be left wide open. IMO we would be better off concentrating our efforts on making the borders as secure as possible instead of advocating witch hunts in a nation bursting at the seams with millions of LEGAL immigrants. I mean, how the hell did millions of people make it across the border undetected in the first place, that is totally irresponsible. If they can make it across, so can terrorists,dirty bombs,etc. Just because many of us don't advocate harassing random hispanics doesn't mean that we're not concerned with the real safety of our country!!
