How pathetic, you ARE a criminal.

If the feds want to clean up Morristown from illegal immigrants by all means get the FBI and DHS and come in and do it. But do not leave it up to the local police department that has a different array of crimes to deal with that they are trained for and have the proper tools to handle.
Hmmm were it not for your innocent day laborers the employers of such might be forced to hire legal citizens and pay a reasonable wage instead of simply pocketing the savings. What about the innocent legal citizens who are unemployed who need a job even if its only for a day or a week? I believe that legal citizens and residents are more entitled to any work in this country than any illegal.
Sorry your excuse is just as flat as the illegals excuse for violating our laws.

What kind of training is needed to ask someone if they are in this country legally? Is there some kind of magic "PC way" that won't hurt tender feelings?

During my last trip to Morristown, there had to be at LEAST 400 day labors hanging out looking for work across from the train station. I used to LOVE Morristown, the resturants & the mid size town shopping experience, not any more.

Not at all. The feds bust in and raid their homes. Just let the feds do it.

Plus there is little respect for law enforcement in Mexico/Central America (where most illegals come from) as it is, so those losers think it is perfectly acceptable to try to evade punishment here in the USA and cry foul when caught.
This why I name call them, " ill legal aliens " LOL...
