in the story above i noticed that the goog rev.earlington says police are trained to pursue and get those breaking the law off the streets, is it not a crime to be here if you are not a "legal immigrant?" kinda sounds like he is speaking from both sides of his mouth. if you are not supposed to be here go home. if you are legal obey the law and you have no worries. it is not the place of the american people to support and protect illegal immigrants!

I believe the city, county, state can make it a felony to work, rent or drive if not in the country legally.

I agree with the previous (first) two comments. These people are criminals, period. All law enforcement agencies should be cracking down on this nefarious activity. We cannot keep wasting our resources on these criminals. The American people are suffering enough with our economy, and getting rid of these (criminals) is the one thing that will help this (economy) the most. And, for the record, any business who knowingly hires these criminals, and any organization that knowingly helps them (illegals), whether it be a business, church, etc. should be considered, held as, and charged as a criminal enterprise, the same as drug dealers, organized crime, or terrorists.

While I applaud the Mayor and his efforts and wish them the best, it's coming about 15 years too late for that area. This problem did not just spring up overnight

Good! As a first generation American, I am fed up with illegals. My parents were naturalized as small children. Both my parents and grandparents had to learn English. There weren't any concessions if one was an immigrant 100 years ago. Folks like my grandparents were NOT catered to. They learned the language, worked hard and stayed out of trouble!

I agree something needs to be done and I think the mayor, Chief Womack and councilman Chuck Ellis are trying to do something. It will take a while because this has been an ongoing problem. I understand these people want a better life and if they would come here legally it would be fine. Right now they are overcrowding our schools and costing the taxpayers a fortune. What really makes me sick is to go to the grocery store to spend money I have earned and see hispanics in front of me with an overflowing buggy and then use food stamps. Then they go out out and put the groceries in a really expensive car. They can afford nice cars and can't buy food.HELLO!

You do realize that NATIVE AMERICANS are the only ones that are supposed to be here, right? WE were illegal immigrants that came in and took over everything. I am so tired of uneducated Alabamians talking about something they have no clue about. The FACTS are that the states with the HIGHEST immigrants have the LOWEST unemployment. They are NOT taking our jobs. They pay taxes on everything they buy -- be it WalMart or gas or whatever just like you do.

For those of you who are violent, you should be deported to prison for the rest of your lives.

You all are so ignorant of the facts and the truth. The Mexicans are for the most part hard working people that take jobs that lazy fat Americans don't want. If you want to crack down on someone who is USING up your tax dollars, then go after those people on welfare that are too lazy and stupid to work.

Learn the facts, then if you can, which I doubt, then talk intelligently about it.

They will be taking over and you will be the minority soon. I can't wait!!!!!

I agree the one hillbilly redneck the "whooped" someone or some people is ignorant and should keep his mouth shut. As for the other post, they seem to have some knowledge of the topic.

No, illiegal immigrants do not pay for the same taxes we pay yet they still qulaify for WIC, food stamps, any type of govt. assistance for that matter.

Tired of racists-we are tired of you. You are the racist of them all. You "can't wait" for "us" to be in the minority? Are you referring to white people only, do you think black people do not post on this board? I personally know citizens that worked very hard to become legal, it's more frustrating to them than to myself. I'm sure they would not support your opinion.

You should work harder at becoming more educated on the topic, you sound just as silly and the crazy hillbilly that's beating up people.

Currently there is no place in Albertville to house such arrests nor do they have the man power. The council won't enforce any ordinance they have past anyway, its all politics!!!
