A Chicago man who spent the weekend in jail and faced deportation on suspicion he is in the country illegally said what happened to him illustrates the need for America to change the way it deals with immigration.

Eduardo Caraballo said his self-described nightmare began last week when he was arrested in connection with a stolen car case.

He's a criminal, he should get deported.

Anyhow your guy probably wasn't born in Puerto Rico. It's very common for illegals to buy birth certificates and other documents from Puerto Rico. Very very common.

so would it be ok to question all puerto ricans papers?
thats a slippery slope.
if we do it to this guy, then any PRican can have the same accusations thrown at them; "those arent REAL papers!"

Can you get REAL? EVERYONE knows the massive invasion from mexico into this Country illegally and to cry racial profiling or any other loophole to protect this criminal is absurd. Illegal aliens have created the worst mess in this Country and we are trying to clean it up and them OUT! I would be a very much less forgiving leader of this Country. Stop all the dang whining. Caught in crossfire scenarios happen in every war and yes, this is a war.

This story was all over the local news in chicago, playing it off like a sob story about harassment and anti-illegal views. The guy A) was in connection to a felony B) speaks with a spanish accent C) couldn't answer basic questions about purto rico.
The police had every right to detain him.

You obviously know nothing about me so refrain from trying to define my reality, you have no clue...

Illegal aliens declared war when they started marching in OUR (that's Americas) streets claiming it to be their land and that they are here to take it back. What is that? A volleyball game?
