    He did the right thing; now he faces deportation - Immigration: A Nation Divided- msnbc.com


    Moreno, 29, of Charlotte made the call Dec. 29 because, he alleged, a Charlotte police officer was trying to fondle his girlfriend after a traffic stop. The officer ordered Moreno to drop the call and arrested him and his girlfriend for resisting arrest.

    Several things then happened. Five other women came forward to allege that the officer, identified as Marcus Jackson, now 26, had tried to molest them, too. Moreno was released after investigators debunked the resisting arrest charge. So was his girlfriend.




    When you make a class of people in your country affraid of the police you create a class of people for whom reporting a crime becomes a threat.

    You increase the dangers for police officers and give officers like this asshole a whole class of people to abuse with very little fear of retribution.


    It creates an atmosphere of free crime zones.

    This is one of the many reasons the right wings knee jerk reaction of "just round them all up" wont work.

    There is also the UNDOABLE cost of such a program would come with.

    Two things about your post TM:

    1 - He didnt' do the right thing to begin with, he is an illegal alien! If he was in a legal immigration status and this had happend then nothing would have occured other than the cop being fired.

    2 - The cop is a bad cop! A bad cop always feels that he is going to get away with whatever he is mixed up in.

    There is nothing about this story that relates to the Arizona Immigration law. Good try though!

    Wahh wahh wahh

    To legally allow my mother to immigrate here from Brasil my Dad had to post a bond with the US State department, and last year aunt came to visit from Italy and she left the day her visa was up.

    Follow the fucking law

    Did you note the limit on the numbers who can stay to go to court?

    This is a big part of the problem.

    We give these peopel no real legal way to get here in the numbers our businesses want to employ them.

    Comprehensive immigration reform should adress this as well as allow the ones already here and acting like good people to get in line to become citizens.

    You can pretend that they can all be rounded up and sent home without tearing up families of American citzens as well as costing trillions to do.

    AZ doesn't make us unsafe.

    A Federal government with no respect for the law does make us unsafe.

    You have managed to point out another problem. US companies that want to hire illegal, uneducated, unskilled and cheap labor. Once the Mexican resident becomes a legal immigrant in this country he will no longer be in the "cheap" labor catagory. He will rate benefits and minimum wage. The employer only wants illegal aliens to save money. The employer as well as the illegal alien should both be put in jail!

    Quit with the political bs of, "comprehensive immigration reform". Yes, maybe there are some changes that could be made in order to help immigrants get processed more effeciently, but the amnesty is not an option. Its an option if you are a political party after votes, but it is not an option if you are a law abiding citizen.

    The notion that we could hurd all of the illegal aliens together and ship them off is a fairy tale. But as you catch them, they should be processed and deported. Its the law. If a naturalized American citizen came here through the proper legal channels, why would he/she recommend to his family members to come over illegally. Doesn't sound very smart, considereing harboring and abetting an illegal alien can get your citizenship revoked. So, if you are legal and you break the law and your family gets split up, then I guess you should have followed the law to begin with. That's like a man convicted of murder and sent to prison complaining that he has been split up from his family. :cuckoo:

    TM, thanks for playing. Would you like to take bogus arguments for $500?:lol:
