I have no idea why people think illegals are so damn special.
Liberals don't care about actual Americans nor do they care about the millions of foreigners who are attempting to immigrate legally. They crap on all those people who applied, jumped through all the hoops and had patience.

Everyone on the outside knows the US to be an arrogant country thinking they're the best at everything, just go do some traveling and ask fellow citizens of other countries, you'd be surprised.
Wrong, the number one nation that refugees and immigrants want to come to is America, Canada and the UK are a very close second.

I have traveled but I didn't need to in order to find out how the world views us. I live in an area with plenty of immigrants from all over the world and they think your point of view is garbage.

Recap: The feds are doing this as a result of several California cities refusing to enforce federal law. In other words, these cities started this stupid fight.
They are NOT permitted to enforce federal laws. Could California start a war with another country?

Additionally, the Feds are asking for no more than cooperation. When ICE requests you detain someone, you should detain them.

RIP Kate Steinle.
The courts have also ruled that states have NO standing in holding people beyond their sentence. No, Trumps new pics are not likely going to change that.

I think this is a good point. The argument is that there is a legal way to come here. The problem is those who are coming here illegally. So what are we concentrating on here? Those who have attempted to come here legally.

California Could Cut-Off Feds In Response To Trump Threats CBS San Francisco

Some of the most ignorant posts ever being posted..

California


Is ANYONE surprised that California with all of their touted financial success is yet BILLIONS of dollars in financial debt which has many financial analysts "worried"?



How many trillions of dollars is America in debt?


Think real hard. I know you can do it.

Ok.

Let's cut California off from all federal funds and resources. Power from Hoover dam. Water from the rerouted rivers...

Let's see which one falls first.

Probable cause? How about ICE goes up to a prospect for a conversation. The prospect can't speak English. Is that probable cause enough? In L.A. they could work round the clock 24/7 hauling away the illegals.


Maybe the answer is the bounty hunter system we have in the US. The US Militia can do the work. Round up the illegals and deport. If a few eggs get cracked in the process it goes along with the territory of dealing with criminal.

I cannot wait for states, cities and people who defy our Constitution to be smacked down by President Trump


A smacked down is too good for these traitors. They need long jail time and take the kid gloves off when hauling them to jail.
