SAN DIEGO - Several students and teachers rallied Thursday morning to end immigration raids on the San Diego Trolley.

The group chanted and held signs at the Metropolitan Transit System offices in the East Village. They want MTS to stop cooperating with Border Patrol and other immigration authorities who do immigration checks on Trolley lines.

"They are afraid to go to school. They are afraid they will be deported or questioned on their way to it," said Ana Maria Benetez, mother of one of the three students, at the MTS board meeting. "We feel frustration and pain. My daughter is not here with us, and that has changed our reality dramatically."

WAAAAAH!!! Government officials are enforcing the law and punishing criminals who knowingly broke the law! Why are criminals being treated this way?!

The deported guys did commit crimes so they should be punished.

If you don't have the time don't do the crime.

^ Exactly.

The family members have NO ONE to blame but themselves for knowingly committing a crime and now they're facing the consequences.

If her daughter was not in the country illegaly she would not have been deported. Next question - why was Ana Maria Benetez not deported also?
