I think to assault an illegal immigrant is not inherently better or worse than to assault a citizen or a legal immigrant.

Criminals attacking criminals, doesn't bother me in the least.

If they weren't here, they wouldn't be attacked.

Agreed; I do not condone criminal behavior but if they had not been here, they wouldn't have been victimized.

They should go home. And the people robbing them should go to jail or, if they're illegal, prison then deportation.

I feel that two wrongs do not make a right, but are the thugs trying to convey a point!

Both criminals in my book?

It's pretty simple:
1) Illegals often carry cash.
2) They can't turn to authorities for help.

So illegals are providing employment for gang members? Great....at least someone is utilizing a resource. The weak are being eaten by the strong and barbaric...The government can not and will not have authority over illegals- nor can they or will they have authority over organized crime...sounds like a gloomy state of affairs.

In most cases the illegals being victimized by these cartel gangs are members of a gang. Also the very fact that they're perfectly willing to break all kinds of laws to be here illegally means they're perfect recruits. After all -- they'll break laws to have that better life of big easy money.
