If that's the kind of argument anti-hispanics are going to use, then all non-Hispanics who are against comprehensive immigration reform are racist.

I am not anti-hispanic per se. I have nothing against hispanics who respect the rule of law and put this country above their ethnicity and are here legally. So get that straight! The problem is that far too many hispanics do not do that. How do you figure that all non-hispanics against CIR are racists?

Ms Mendoza apparently lives in Mexico City, safely tucked away from the area she is pretending to be an expert on. I would bet dollars to donuts she has never personally been within 50 miles of the border in her entire life.

According to a link provided by a pro-illegal poster.
150,000 illegals in 2010 have been deported due to criminal behavior. That is in the first 6 months of this year.
Number of deportations have more than doubled in 10 years and continue to rise
Right around 1 million in the last 10 years..
What more need be said? 1 in 12 illegals commit crimes that get them jailed.
Now to be fair this is 1 in 12 get caught.....

I noticed that as well, but this really stuck out to me..........


"And an in-house Customs and Border Protection report shows that Border Patrol agents face far less danger than street cops in most U.S. cities."

Now I understand why the report is so favorable to Obamas position. Who is one of the head honchos for ICE ? Oh yeah, John Morton, the same guy who said he may not may not even respond to illegals arrested in Az, due to their new law...
No reason to be suspicious of this report......
Uless you see something like this article about people who actually live there...

"The violence has risen to such levels in Ciudad Juarez that everyone feels at risk in the city of 1.3 million, where innocent people have been increasingly caught in the crossfire. Hit men have gone to wrong addresses or shot indiscriminately into homes, mowing down not only the targeted people but anyone nearby.
Mothers have driven into daytime shootouts, bending over their children to protect them. Toddlers have been fatally pierced by bullets while playing on the swings at city playgrounds. Waitresses have been slain for having the misfortune of serving marked men........."

Fear grips Mexican border families amid violence » Go San Angelo Mobile
Who actually live where? Ciudad Juarez is NOT in Arizona.

El Paso. TX is right across the Rio Grande from Juarez and is (still) ranked as one of the safest cities in the U.S. as is noted in the OP's link.
Aside from some random incidents (and still much less than occur in Chicago, Detroit, etc.), the violence has not moved across the river.
