I've come across this article on the BBC News website and thought some of you might be interested.

BBC News - Illegal immigrants take taxis to avoid deportation

"At sunrise in Gainesville, brightly coloured taxis arrive one after another outside the gates of a chicken processing plant. It's not exactly Manhattan at rush hour but the roads of this small Georgia town, with a population approximately 35,000, are full of taxis."

So unlicensed drivers are staying off the streets, and individuals who broke our immigration laws have self-deported? Interesting that the BBC reports this as something negative.

LOL...was thinking the same thing.

Of course the BBC is left of NBC News, which is kind of hard to do, so no surprise they would present it in a negative light.

Where did you read or hear any negative slant from BBC? The article itself simply states what some supporters of the law say and also points out what critics say. The video has no narration but simply shows commentary from people - some agree with the law, others do not.

Hardly a liberal slant, is it?
