that might work in other places, but IN LA, where resources are scarce, i am fine with them initiating contact with actual perpetrators or suspects of violent crimes, not people they suspect to be n the country illegally.

the cops in my part of town have too much to deal with i.e. gangs, drugs, homicides, etc etc. they go after the violent criminals first. its makes fiscal sense. if there are illegals in the bunch, well two birds killed with one stone.

this works in LA, it might not be the best model for other safer, less urban cities, but it works in LA.

let the cops go after the REAL bad guys.

otherwise im sure every corner they turned the cops would be detaining people for being here illegally.

thats not the policing that we need in LA.

if ICE wants to catch people, let them do their own policing. im fine with the PD's going after the bad guys. maybe there needs to be an ICE satelite in each major city.

but even then, ICE is in LA, but they are usually attached to larger raids on gangs and other more sophisticated criminal groups.

I want ALL laws upheld. If LE hands off a bunch of sneaky border crossers that have only broke 1 or two laws I am quite ok with ICE finishing off.


It is complete BS that the fear of deportation is getting sent back to start like a monopoly game.

Well let's not arrest any criminals then, shall we? Afterall many are repeat offenders so why bother, right? One thing good about deporting them and them coming back is that they are then felons! By the way Arapio isn't deporting anyone. He leaves that to the government. Migrant workers aren't being deported, illegal aliens are. Nice that you leave that part out.

It is amazing how some simply choose to overlook that distinction.. Just as those same individuals choose to over look the fact that a good many of those illegals are also violent criminals, committing crimes that would have been prevented if 1. we enforced our immigration laws, 2. secured the border and 3. If all those dedicated decorated officers had turned these criminals over to ice when they were in custody.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."


What can you not understand about that? A very well respected man wrote that, about 1907. It holds so much truth, today.

Thus proving that if we take away the work, safe haven, and make it simply to difficult to exist that they will self deport.

Yes, and I applaud the state of Ariz. Other states should learn from them. I had to laugh when I read a statement made on a pro-illegal forum that we should nuke Arizona because they were PO'd that Arizonians were taking steps to remove illegal aliens from their state. This statment was made by an American by the way. Treason comes to mind.

That is pure treason, yes.

I swear the pro illegal side is becoming more desperate judging by their inane comments-------------they intuitively know the party is over.
