I really don't mind people being all against illegal immigration, not really my bone to chew on but it's people like you who will make me stand up and oppose this. You are just creating more enemies with that idiotic approach.
I do not want to turn you into an enemy. You are a fellow American who should not be accused of being an illegal just because you look a certain way. I don't like racial profiling at all but there is no way to avoid it when the majority of illegals are from one area. I do think we should put more emphasis on punishing employers who hire illegals and building a border fence. However, that doesn't mean that we should not use racial profilling in certain areas (like border towns in SW) that is known to have a very high concentration of illegals.

yesterday I was watching c-span and it was
about the border violence in mexico....

and on the committe they were high ranking officials...
asking and trying to see where
the representives..
of ice and the border patrol and the home land security standed on these new trends...

and when one of the officials..ask the border patrol man...why did the numbers not match with the ones with the ICE department...and he just stood there blank...for a second...then the official..ask him...
what I think you should do is concentrate with your respective branches...in cooperating in catching the badguys..not DISHWASHERS...

lets face..it...were bankrupt...no money can be attributed to senseless
ways were we are not stimulating the economy like subsidising some hi biotech techology out there....

and hold on...do you know what the border patroL men said? he said and he was right. he said well does dishwashers clog up the system...and
then it just really makes it difficult to catch the bad guys...

well LET THE PHONE RINGS I AM PRETTY SURE..YOU WOULD NOT BE CLOGGING THE SYSTEM FOR THE NARCOS....to go arrest a little five year old..somewhere in america..while some weirdo smuggles 100 pounds of cocaine with street value...of millions of dollars...

you as a citezen would suy yupey..we save ourselves...
20 dollars a day..because that is what it cost to have a child in school you know if you dont believe me check....

and that weirdo..just incarcerated...10 guys...two are in intensive care...and 100 are commiting some other crime associated with it...

actually I think that is a violation of the privacy law and you as an employee of the district would be in violation of district policy and open to termination if the district does not turn these people over to immigration itself...
you are obligated to report child abuse you suspect because that is a law
but there is no law that says people are supposed to call la migra about people who think are illegals...unless maybe a situation where they are trying to get hired by your business and present false papers...

I know an administrator at our school who found out some Illegals gave the school false records about where they lived( out of the district). She was able to use that information to have them investigated for giving false information and they were later deported once the authorities found out the parents were here illegally.

Those of us who truly care about America will "Thank you" for doing the right thing and turning in the illegals. Let us know how it goes.
