What a shame. Illegals canít even ride a trolley. Soon, they won't be safe anywhere.

SAN DIEGO -- An immigration sweep that resulted in the arrests of dozens of illegal immigrants took place in the most unexpected of places, and immigration rights activists are unhappy with the operation, 10News reported.

The sweep, which happened Wednesday at the Old Town transit center, involved agents from the Transportation Security Administration and the Border Patrol. The agents got on board a trolley and arrested 21 illegal immigrants, including three teenagers on their way to school. Those teens have since been deported.

On Friday, immigrant rights activists denounced the sweep and said the agents crossed the line and accused them of profiling. "What gives them the authority to question only Latinos or people that looked a certain way?" said Rios.

The activists also questioned the Obama administration, wondering if this was the change in immigrant rights they thought was coming. "This is a policy that violates human rights," said Rios.

The spokesman said of the 21 detained, one person had a warrant out for his arrest and another had a felony conviction on his record.

Yes I am sure illegal apologists didn't like the raid since it worked!

And yes, it would completely suck to be an American citizen of latino descent and be stoped by ICE because I look a certain way. On the other hand, the legal latino community has a certain degree of culpability in this immigration mess. If they didn't put ethnicity over their allegiance to this country and to the law then perhaps instead of millions of illegals their would only be hundreds of thousands of illegals.

The Police are going to have to be in on this for this madness to come to an end. I get ID'd all the time and I thank the Officer for doing their job.
We either increase BP, ICE and HS or we include the other agencies to cover the slack.
