Illegals by definition have no respect for the laws of this country and so are more inclined to break other laws. Any laws that they find inconvenient, they believe they should break. That's why illegals need to be returned to their own homelands.
LOL! Those Armenians are more than likely American. Do you really think this type of behavior is limited to illegals, and can't be attributed to Americans?

Armenian and American don't mean the same thing even if they have some of the same letters. Armenians are not Americans, they are Armenians, from that country. Someone who is an Armenian is not an American.

It's already been explained that we have domestic criminals, plenty of them, what we don't need is to import more. Deport the illegals.

Hopefully most of the thugs aren't actually legal immigrants.

Why are the Latino gangs "racist groups", and yet the Black gangs who do the same thing aren't?

Why is America allowing any gang should be what you are asking. Not pushing and stubbornly arguing your ridiculous, completely uninformed point.
I am wondering the same thing too. I doubt you will get a coherent answer from the rabid anti-illegals though.

Why don't you guys answer this: Since we all know *some* gang types are American and *some* gang types are illegals, can we all agree that anyone associated with these gangs who is illegal needs to be deported - and with their families?

That's simple enough.

At the least one very important approach to these gangs would be to round up all those involved in these gangs that is here illegally and send them home.

That includes Armenians here illegally. Anyone.

The highlighted statement is not true. Being an Armenian does not mean you are not a U.S. citizen ( what I understand you mean by American ). Unless in Armenia you are required to renounce your citizenship in order to take another one, since the U.S. does not require you to give up your previous citizenship before obtaining the U.S. one.

Someone could be Armenian and a citizen of the U.S. at the same time.

I doubt many of us have much problem sending "dual citizens" especially those who are involved in criminal activities here back to that other country they love so much.

Dual citizenship can work both ways, there's no reason at all for a dual not to enjoy time in his other (usually preferred) country. A dual citizen who acts up here should be returned to the homeland.

If “LOTS” of black vs. brown violence exists in DC, they are certainly keeping it mum. I am only aware of one incident, and I believe it was a gang initiation as opposed to being racially motivated. However, I do know that certain areas of Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Hyattsville, and Langley Park have been transformed from nice neighborhoods into illegal alien crime-infested barrios. There has also been an increase in other crimes, including murder, perpetrated by illegal aliens.

I have a friend who lives in NW DC near 14th Street where many Blacks and Hispanics live. According to him, there is no racial issue; and the violence involves primarily Latino on Latino crime.

Can you substantiate your claim? I Googled and received no results other than for LA.

The following article mentions a few other places, but there was no mention of DC.

Animosity between Latinos and blacks is the worst-kept secret in race relations in America. For years, Latino leaders have pointed the finger of blame at blacks when Latinos are robbed, beaten and even murdered. Blacks, in turn, have blamed Latinos for taking jobs, for colonizing neighborhoods, for gang violence. These days, the tension between the races is noticeable not only in prison life and in gang warfare (where it's been a staple of life for decades) but in politics, in schools, in housing, in the immigration debate. Conflicts today are just as likely -- in some cases, more likely -- to be between blacks and Latinos as between blacks and whites. In fact, even though hate-crime laws were originally created to combat crimes by whites against minority groups, the majority of L.A. County's hate crimes against blacks in 2006 were suspected to have been committed by Latinos, and vice versa, according to the county Commission on Human Relations.

You didn't answer my question -- can't we all agree that anyone associated with these criminal gangs be deported along with their families if they are here illegally?

Then we won't have to argue about how many are Americans. I'm sure we can agree that all illegals who commit crimes and/or are members of gangs must be deported.

You have two homelands...I was dual for most of my life. I was born like that, like many others.
