    I have a simple solution go back to Mexico or where ever home is and then do the proper work to come to the US legally! Pretty easy concept:rolleyes:

    Good. They should all be looking over their shoulders. Hopefully we'll have more deportations.

    What "immigration raids"?

    I know of some where illegal immigrants were arrested. But none where just ANY immigrant was arrrested. Reuters couldn't have gotten it (gasp) wrong, could they?

    BTW, why are all these latinos "fearful"? The cops are only arresting those who broke our immigration laws. Does that include all of these "Latinos"? Only then do they have any reason to be "fearful".

    More misreporting by Reuters? Odd how it all goes in one direction: to stir up false fears among the law-abiding.

    How about this approach: Those poor hispanics working there asses off in that greedy America and they get deported. I feel so sad for them? That is another spin with miss information from the media. I'm all for legal immigration but draining our system isn't the answer, maybe the liberal/Pelosi approach but not mine.

    Why would you be afraid if you are legally here?

    shouldnt those who are deported be grateful to take their new work ethic to their home to change things there?

    Who cares if they're deported? What does that change? They'll be back within days.


    Until a wall is built & the laws regarding immigration are changed to reflect some reality & fairness, nothing is going to change.

    Until then, the debate is pointless.

    We agree basically about illegal immigration. They didn't though 'get a new work ethic,' those that came to work, already had that. The opportunities to utilize that are absent because of corrupt government in Mexico, in particular. Until that is fixed, which is not solvable for the US, the problems will remain.

    Well, you'll certainly get no argument from me on THAT point.


    Your wrong Roo, the population of Mexican criminals in OUR country will continue to rise.

    Well, not pointless, unless nothing happens, and I still belive there will be action on this issue, as it is VERY important, and I belive one of the most pressing issues on our agenda.
