This is another article to close to home.
Illinois motor vehicle laws require insurance. car must be registered legally .Drivers license and other state laws apply in operating a vehicle.
Does enforcement stop require a percentage of a population's race be applied prior to a stop ?
Driving or operating a motor vehicle is not a right in any state.

Quote:

"The never ending racial profiling stories. You're right it's racial
profiling! If you have a large community of illegal immigrants in China that
are white 6' tall and speak english being questioned while those of Asian
decent are not questioned, wouldn't that be racial profiling?

Get over
yourselves people, if the legal hispanic community along with all other
races are tired of this racial profiling then maybe they should do something
about the illegal situation, like reporting them!

Since when do we as
Americans have to submit to having our rights usurped to protect people that
have not earned the right to be called Americans?

This is not an elitest
comment, if I go to Mexico, Canada or England, I am a guest in their country
and they will for sure know I'm there and have every right to single me out
to ask questions of me.

Get over it, especially the news media and this
paper, you perpertuate the hate stories and the "human suffering" stories as
if you own them and want to do something about them.

Admit it, without the
illegals you would shrivel up and die without a cause. I have a cause for
you, why don't you write about whats happening to good people that live here
legally, go to work everyday and pay our taxes but we still get accused of
being inhumane, racist and greedy just because we don't get behind saving
the illegal aliens.

And the people that want to shout racial profiling keep shouting. "

This is local news for me.
I grew up in Du Page County , in Addison near Villa Park Illinois .
Now both areas are basically Hispanic in certain parts of the city's....
Other immigrants as well.
Now do local police in the above city's and others have to fear retaliation for doing their duties?
Once again driving is not a right..

What wasn't mentioned in this article is their are many law enforcement officers in those city's who are of Hispanic ancestry. Many are active duty military as well.
Wonder if the organization alleging charges took that in consideration.

in Addison, it seems that the Latino group is being targeted through rental property owners. The rental property owners are being charged with petty violations that cost them hundreds to thousands in court. Some of them foreclose/leave Addison etc, get out of the rental business and the renters(Spanish) need to leave as well. The price of the realestate keeps going down. It is is a well known fact that Mayor Hartwig does not want Spanish in Addison. He was once quoted that they should all go back to Mexico.
Additionally, the Green Oaks Court areas, which has been flooding for a while,the village has decided not repair the situation.This will also cause the renters for leave.

I don't see as many mexicans like i used to before.I guess their packing up and leaving.You know what i have been seeing lately around here 2-3 cop cars pulling over mexicans left and right-and checking their car from inside and out.How embarrassing right NOT!!! That's what you all get for coming here and if you want to try another state try going to Arizona where the sheriff and the Mayor Jan Brewer have every illegal mexican controlled like dogs.In Sheriff Arpaio jail he makes the mexicans wear pink jail uniforms. ;D GET MY POINT LEAVE THE U.S.- YOU DON'T BELONG HERE AND NEVER WILL BE!
