South Florida sees growth in smuggling of Brazilians, other migrants

There are 33 comments on the SanLuisObispo.com story from Oct 30, 2012, titled South Florida sees growth in smuggling of Brazilians, other migrants. In it, SanLuisObispo.com reports that:

The arraignment Oct. 15 of Fabio Rodrigues Froes and Juliana Rosa Tome Froes, before Magistrate Judge Chris McAliley, where they pleaded not guilty, came less than a month after they were arrested in South Florida in a federal case that has led to the exposure of a little-known dimension to the issue of migrant smuggling.

I believe there is a conspiracy to dilute the basic American culture. I believe that to overrun America with foreigners, to uphold multiculturalism as opposed to DESERVED diversity and patriotism, is all a part of the NWO agenda! There is a reason that the powers that be on both sides are so lenient on illegal aliens!!!!

They know that Americans are strong willed and individualistic by culture, so the best way to break this is to dilute it. If you know of a better logical reason, please share it!

You make an excellent point!
By eroding the very foundation that made America great, our Country will simply implode under the social weight of multiculturalism. Diversity simply divides...it's not rocket science.

This is a very serious threat to this Country. We honestly don't have a clue is coming here anymore. We will eventually realize that radical terrorist's are seeing with ease, how to breach our Border. Where are the people, sworn to protect us. What an embarrassing insult To this Country. Obozo and Nappy need to be released from their job's. They are ineffective and other's countries know it.

My cousin and my 87 yr old aunt from Callie recently visited me. They were startled at the number of foreigners who dominated the airport services in America! Mind you, their experience consisted of going from Santa Barbara to SF to Sea Tac! What they experienced was amazing!!!

They noted that our ground transporation was dominated by Ethopians/Somali, and our ticket agents seemed to be India/Pak,Filipino as well as the restaurant, etc. The thing that really angered them was the fact that each of these groups spoke to each other in their native languages thoughout the AP!! All of this was done while sheeple were being examined and ex-rayed to prevent terrorism. All the while, AP EMPLOYEES CAN PLOT AN PLAN BEFORE OUR EYES!!! HOW MANY OF YOU SPEAK AMHARIC, HINDUSTANI OR TAGALOG?!!! DIDN'T THEY OK A LAW A YEAR AGO SPEAK ONLY ENGLISH IN THE WORKPLACE?!!! THIS IS INSANE!!!!

Wake up Sheeple, at least enjoy the fireworks while it is over!!!

My Niece passed TSA exam for Salt Lake international. She worked only a few month's before relocating to Denver. She told me it would be a since to breach SLC and several other AP she's worked in. They have so few American Security workers and Local Cops patrol the perimeter and aren't always available. This blew her mind. This is multi-cultualism at is worst. They need foreigners to speak to customers in their Native language. But it bother's her anyway. We don't know who's coming here to TSA. Why are we permitting anyone but American workers to be here. They all need to learn and use English and to speak it to everyone. We are losing our culture.

Don't fall for the, "They need foreigners to speak to customers..." They haven't been a critical need in the past, why now? Most foreigners, or it use to be, come to America prepared to speak at least basic English...except illegal aliens!

When I go to a foreign country, I at least know how to say good morning, etc., and where is the bathroom!
Which bring up the story: I was in a train station and saw a woman who was cleaning (illegal alien) and asked her where the bathrooms were, AND THE PERSON WHO CLEANED THEM COULDN'T UNDERSTAND ENOUGH TO POINT TO WHERE THEY WERE!!! I SURE WANTED TO KNOW HOW TO SAY GO HOME IN SPANISH!!!!

You make an interesting point however, I don't think there is some sort of NWO conspiracy to dilute the "American will." That would mean I would have to believe that the average Mexican illegal alien, is working behind the scene with higher-ups in an NWO conspiracy. The facts show that they people migrate illegally primarily for economic reasons, or in pursuit of "the American dream." (Just like many great Americans throughout history have)
Illegal aliens travel to America on their own will, and with their own agenda when they arrive. They are not being forced to participate in an NWO conspiracy, there is simply no evidence to support your claim.

Now don't get me wrong, I believe everyone should respect the law. I also believe it is wrong for anyone to knowingly violate US Immigration law. At the same time though, I think if I lived in a country like Haiti, which is stricken with poverty, crime, natural disasters, voodoo, etc, I would probably think about getting to a free country in anyway I can, so I could explain my situation to the authorities there, try to get some leniency, and contribute to the free country's future success.

All immigrants should be interviewed, and each case should be judged on its own merits before a decision is made to let the migrant stay or to deport him/her. Americans need to be the loving Americans the rest of the world knows and have come to love. America does not need its kindness to be mistaken for weakness, but America needs to be kind. And I think America is kind, that's why there is an immigration problem in the first place....

Do you know for a fact she was an illegal cleaning lady? You are pre judging that lady if you dont know for a fact she was illegal. How would you feel if someone was prejudiced toward you like that? C'mon

Have you ever thought that the cleaning lady may have just arrived legally in America, and was taking classes to learn English and American culture? Why the hostility toward someone you don't know? She may be in a position to save your life one day, and I hope you don't let your assumption that she was illegal cause your death....

America knows who's in America, all legal migrants are known of, and millions of illegals are also known of. The proof is in America's census and immigration records.

I further think that radical terrorists woke America up on 9 11, and consequently, there is so much security now, it is extremely difficult for a terrorist to evade detection inside, or outside of America.

The people sworn to protect Americans, are busy protecting Americans the best they can. They are not perfect, but they are doing their best. Some of them have died, or are taking a chance at dieing abroad in places like Afghanistan and Iraq TO PROTECT AMERICANS from terror.. Did you forget about them??

Who are Obozo and Nappy?

The gov't is deporting thousands everyday! It is not their fault at all. And frankly, if your gov't failed you, you can vote for a different one because the current one is preserving your democracy and freedom! And since you have that freedom, your gov't should be given a pat on the back.. You have to remember that whether republican or democrat, an American is an American. Stop hating each other so much, it is sickening.. The illegal aliens themselves are to blame for the issues they cause.

If diversity divided, we wouldn't all live on ONE planet. Nature is what is causing diversity, not government policies. So if you don't like diversity, you'll have to move to another planet and be by yourself. Because planet Earth has always been a diverse planet and will always continue to evolve and change. America's population reflects a picture of the world, and in doing so, a perfect picture of what freedom looks like... And America's president is considered to lead the "free world". So it should be expected that the population of a country who holds its president as leader of the "free world," should consist of different cultures naturally...

There i no such thing as a lawabiding illegal.... are you nut's. Have you knowingly come into a foreign country and breached their Soverignty? Yea you have. That's a crime here. Did your family knowingly take a job with false ID in order to live here? Probably. Do you work everyday for a US Employer? Then he's a criminal as well as you are. Do you rent or sublease a home or apartment with false representation? then you my lawabidingalien, are indeed a criminal alien and should self deport ASAP.

You said several things, but I will only touch on a few. Poverty, crime, etc., are no justification for illegal immigration!!! I think of Blacks in America who, for over two hundred years in America were either enslaved or forcefully disenfranchised through segregation. Blacks stood and fought for equal right within THEIR country!!! They didn't go to mexico or any other country seeking refuge or asylum due to slave and segregation.

If you are not an American, you really don't understand what I mean by our culture being diluted...trust me, it has been! We have been overrun cultures who refuse to assimilate. In some groups, to be a patrotic American is akind to being a racist!!! No, your individual mexican peasant didn't say let me do the NWO thing. They, like everyone else is brainwashed! I understand through some mexican acquaintances that illegal immigration was encourged by some mexican newscasters/commentators,etc. The Jorje Ramos types....

Your example of blacks in America does not persuade me to your beliefs. I am a black man that has lived in Florida, Kansas, Colorado, Alabama, and Missouri for a combined total of over 21 years. Even now, I have many close family members that are Americans and live all over America. So needless to say, I understand American culture very well.

African Americans fought for their rights in a developed country, as opposed to a third world country where conditions may have been worse. And throughout history, many left America for Halifax, in Canada and others went south to The Caribbean. So not all of us stayed in America...

A patriotic American is someone that appreciates all that America is! Not just the part of America that looks like them. America is too big to be limited to a few cultures.

I do believe that immigrants should make an effort to assimilate, but if being American means excluding others, or blogging insults about other immigrants that want to come to America, what would they assimilate into?

Legal immigration is the right way to go about traveling to America, but illegal immigration may not be wrong in every situation... Stop being so mean!!!

The refugee that obtains "legal status" upon arriving illegally in America, is a perfect example of how illegal is not always illegal.

Mean?!!! I too am a patriotic American of African decent, born into segregation, and am seventh generation American!
It's not about the America that looks like me, it's about the American culture, and we have one just as any other country! English is our language! Learn it! Become one of us! I don't care what you look like, but I want you to respect who we are, become us, and not come to take, and take advantage of us!

Mean?!!! They have taken the American way of life and called us lazy because we have worked hard to build a just a humane way of living that considered families and a higher standard of living in the world. Illegal immigrants who will accept anything because, no matter what, is better than what they had. Since our society had evolved, and we earned higher wages, we were considered lazy by illegal aliens...who came here to take advantage of what we "lazy" Americans had created.

I don't know where you were, but the south was not a developed country! Gentile slave owners were, but the majority consisted of slaves and poor white uneducated trash. Blacks were beaten and efforts were made to prevent them from even migrating to the north as recent as the Great Migration of the 30'-60's! The places you say Blacks migrated to, I would suggest you replace the word many with "some". In any event, the Blacks who made it to these places were welcomed, as we do refugees, etc., and not illegal aliens. Mean?!!! Get real!
