First, they complain because local police are involved in “federal” immigration enforcement (287g). Now, the feds are involved, and they still cry foul.

Organizers said a federal, instead of local, focus on gang members – especially for Central American gangs like MS-13 – means that police targeting gangsters are actually terrorizing immigrant communities.

Pro-illegal advocates will say and do anything to keep their precious illegals in this country including contradicting themselves. First they say LE should only go after criminal aliens which of course would include gang bangers and when they do they still whine.

Well, hey...why don't we just disband all law enforcement and let anarchy run amok then. I mean, god forbid that any [illegal] immigrant feel the slightest twinge of discomfort because the police are trying to eradicate lawless and dangerous gangs from their communities.

Factoring in ID theft, etc. I can safely say that all illegal aliens age 18+ are indeed criminals. Needless to say: boot 'em all out of the USA; if it means 'breaking up' families..............oh well. The US citizen partner knew in the beginning that she (almost always a female) was dallying with a criminal loser.

-At the conference, actors from Houses on the Moon Theater performed part of their new play, De Nova, about a boy fleeing a gang in Guatemala.

-Conference organizers wanted to connect lines between immigrant rights, juveniles involved in gangs and the communities internationally struggling with these issues.

-The conference centered on the case of Alex Sanchez, a former gang member who co-founded Homies Unidos, an anti-gang violence nonprofit. Last June, he was charged with allegedly playing a role in a 2006 assassination in El Salvador.

Since then, friends have worked to get him released from prison and portrayed the charges as prejudice against gang members, even those who have moved on and tried to help others get out.

(Gee, now police aren't allowed to press charges against someone for an assassination because since the time that the killing took place, the gangbanger stopped banging? Oh that's right, they are "prejudice" against them - just like they are "prejudice" against pickpockets, rapists, and drug dealers - big DUH) What utter nonsense - should we not prosecute for a crime if a suspected criminal subsequently tries to lead a good life? Did that crap work for Sara Jane Olson?

But the best quotes in the article have to be:
-“Immigrant communities are perceived to be the origins of the gangs targeted,” said McGuire, who previously worked at the Washington Office on Latin America.

-El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras were highlighted as hotbeds of gang activity.

By the way - not one part of the entire article actually illustrated how exactly the police were "terrorizing immigrant communities".

The pro-illegal advocates are mostly Hispanic citizens. They claim their neighborhoods are being terrorized because of the illegals and or gang bangers living in them. Well then why don't they stand up for the rule of law instead and appreciate these criminals being driven from their neighborhoods by LE?

Probably because Paco, Flaco, Chichi, Sleepy, Dopey or whatever their street name is, happens to be part of the family. So if the police is targeting the gangbangers, they are targeting their precious little ijo/cousin/baby daddy/etc. And that's terrorism and prejudice to them! Obviously these losers live somewhere - and I doubt they are keeping house for themselves. They've got a network of abused women taking care of them. Of course the police have to target the "immigrant" communities - that's where the gangbangers live for chrissakes!

Pull the Police out of these areas and let them fend for themselves (without tax payer funded Cops) for a week. Morons. I'm sure the Police would be way ok with that move. Let the dregs deal with the dregs.

Wait, that sounds like the border Cities.

Textbook example: Guadalupe, Az.

Sheriff Joe told that illegal alien infested cesspool that they had 6 months to find another law enforcement agency since the 'powers-to-be' (former mayor Rebecca Gimenez------she pissed off the City Council with her antics) wanted the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office out due to Joe rousting the above losers. Guad knuckled under and stayed with the MCSO since neither the Phx PD or the Tempe PD wanted to patrol said cesspool.
