I have two questions:

1. How many do you believe will actually appear in the immigration office as requested?

2. If they are legal workers, why do they need help to remain in this country?


Quote:
An incident in which dozens of immigrants were pulled over on Route 1 on their way to clear snow at Gillette Stadium will be thoroughly reviewed with a contractor who provided the workers, a New England Patriots official said.

"You can bet that the contractor has heard about this loud and clear," said Stacey James, a spokesman for the NFL team.

Most were quickly released but nine others were detained by immigration officials for being in the U.S. illegally.

A total of 49 workers who ended up being released were told to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to determine whether they are in the country legally.

Carlos Escobedo, Guatemala's consul general in the region, says immigrants caught in Wednesday's stop appear to be ordinary workers, not criminals, and he's helping them find legal assistance to determine if they can stay in the country.

I see where you are coming from. If you are a legal immigrant that is knowledgeable about the requirements and the laws then you aren't going to need specialized assistance to determine if you are here legally. It's obvious that they are illegal or they have been here for a while and have failed to do what they need to do to remain legal.

no no, they are "ordinary workers, not criminals" - cough cough

I see ICE is still working their catch and release programmes that allowed the beltway sniper to roam free
