Lacking probable cause that a crime has been committed, police do not have the right to arrest, detain or even question ordinary citizens. The citizens can simply invoke their rights under the 5th amendment.

You need to bone up on your laws and definitions. To temporarily detain and question requires "reasonable suspicion" that a crime has been committed or that a person has acted in a suspicious manner as in a fertive move when approached by a police officer. In the course of an investigation of a crime, many people may be detained and questioned, some may turn out to be witnesses and others not even remotely involved.

If you are here legally and have paperwork to prove it then you should have nothing to worry about and nothing to hide.

I read the article. FIRST the writers have committed the first sin---LYING. When you send FACTS through the wash and spin cycle you end up LYING.

These "immigrants" as they are called are not LEGAL immigrants; either have false papers or no papers. Hence the word "illegal". THAT is what these people so conveniently forget. If they had the RIGHT papers, they might have better luck going through an employment service or doing what the native population does. I guess they want no questions asked.

I APPLAUD the police for doing a good job, and I APPLAUD the county for having the GUTS to stand up when our OWN federal government WON'T.

We do not have infinite space and jobs here and we DO have a native population (native as in BORN in this country or naturalized) that have established themselves and done their part to contribute to the society in which they live. I suppose we are to IGNORE that.

I have BEEN to these places in which these so called workers congregate. They bug people for any work,(not in English mind you), urinate in public, leave their trash lie around, get DRUNK in public and then get sick. Oh, yeah. These are GREAT workers that we want to build our homes. Yeah.

Then to add injury to insult they gather to themselves teams of advocates and lawyers, come before OUR county board of supervisors and DEMAND their "rights". They are FAR rom "helpless".
"Si Se Puede!" I am so sick of that I don't want to see it in the flesh again.
I held myself back and just observed. Some old vets have the guts NOT to hold back.

I've SEEN this article before long ago, when it came out. Let's not FORGET.

We also need to somehow hold the news services accountable for their own stories. We are TIRED of the wash and spin cycle they put these SERIOUS ISSUES through. No detail, no background just whining. That plays into the hands of these illegals and actually benefits them. I think the local news people who write these things should be CALLED what they are:
TRAITORS.

Well excuse me. If ANY citizen were to do what these people are doing, after getting complaints from the locals, you dang well BET the police could have "probable cause". Now how about telling us all what the 5th amendment REALLY says and how it applies to THIS situation.
