No kidding! Crazy huh? I think they should just give up and go back the THIER country. After all, there is no need to live in fear.

What is wrong with this situation? Illegal aliens should be nervous about being in the country illegally, hopefully to the point that they'll self-deport and try a legal approach to being here.

I prefer that to the massive protests and hate-filled people marching holding upside down American flags that we saw last year.

"Immigrant families are also being urged to set up a savings accounts with $3,000 to $10,000 per family to pay bail bonds and other costs."

So.........freeze these accounts and use the money to ship these crooks back to wherever they came from!

"We want to make sure they (immigration officials) don't take advantage of our people," said Martin Rosas, secretary-treasurer for UFCW in Dodge City.

Our people? What a pathetic self-serving POS!

Even they know they should be back across the border. Now, when we know it, and they too know it.. shouldn't it just be that they go? What's so hard about that?

Illegal workers, no matter where they are from have no "ritht" to be in this country. Anyone helping them should also be arested!

Are you kidding me about this. What is the hold up? Illegal is Illegal.. I really don't feel bad for them. If I came into your house illegally and stole from you yet cleaned your bathroom would you be happy? Lets talk about the 7 billion dollars in expenses to Colorado because of illegal immigration. Lets talk about Neonatal intesive care units and labor and delivery units in our local hospitals losing money because there is such an increase in illegal immigrants, having kids. Wake up and pay attention to what is going on.

Funny how he doesn't want ICe taking advantage of "their" people, yet in the next paragraph, it is stated the illegal is using a false identity. What a double standard! What about the person who has their identity stolen?

Of course, these people forget they have no right to be here. What about putting money away to pay back the American taxpayer for the services they've stolen? Oh wait, that would be following the law, something illegals and their ilk don't believe in.

OK let the IRS tax them 95% and put them into deeper poverty than they had in Ole Mex maybe that'll give them a reason to go back if not, we could use that revenue to invade Mexico and take over their oil reserves...since we can not get our crap in one sock elsewhere...
