Hypocrisy at its best. We shouldnít profile Hispanics for immigration violations, but itís alright to profile Muslims.

"I believe that we all sacrificed something. In the old days, Latinos sacrificed, Latinos were profiled during the anti-drug war and we had to take it. Now people from these Muslim countries, specifically like Yemen and Iraq and Afghanistan they have to understand that itís a reasonable precaution, itís a constitutional classification Ö. Iím sorry, but thatís just the way it is. Ö. We need some racial profiling, Iím sorry."

Oh give me a break. When Hispanics start blowing themselves up on planes, then it will be fine to profile them too.

America is dying a slow and painful death from illegal aliens I think profiling is justified now.

No, but what about the Drug Cartels and Gangs that come over the border from Mexico? Mi Familia, Nuesto Cartel, MS-13, etc.. They are Domestic Terrorists!

Absolutely! Furthermore, how can one vehemently oppose profiling for one group, yet support it for others? It is indeed hypocrisy. Geraldo should have kept his trap shut.

Also as a sidenote, I don't know much about Mi Familia or Nuestro Cartel, but MS-13 originated in Los Angeles and its members are mainly from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala...not Mexico.
