"Local enforcement officers do not have the power to enforce Federal immigration laws."

287G gives local law enforcement that power.

In the US, the creation of a permanent underclass of workers with no country to emigrate too to improve their lives may cause a backlash at the ballot box that may result in an overreaction and kill the goose that laid the golden egg.

No country to emigrate to?
We need the double wall so this will stop,NOW.

Sure wish I knew what this guy is referring to.
Golden egg?

huh. i thought they just came here to work. if they are just working, then why are they causing so much trouble that it is straining police resources? why would a "hard working low skilled" laborer need guns and drugs?

Oh yea, they are working alright. They are putting a stress on law enforcement everywhere but sometimes the law gets it just right. Check out this story that happened this weekend down here in nowhere, USA. It does give a few ounces of hope.

just like any race, there are bad mexicans, bad drivers may be. but every race had that kind of people, I have seen people always speeding, white, black, yellow or brown. we all give hell to police sometimes. I've been driving for 8 years here and never got pulled over, no tickets of any kind, why would i make police work harder?
