Go cry to your mommas. These people show a total disregard and contempt for our laws and our borders then whine when they get caught?

This idiot woman knowingly marries an illegal and has children in the knowledge he's subject to arrest and deportation then complains? Get out and take your DNA with you but don't come crying to me.

And these islanders don't think the rules hould apply to them? Arrogant jerks.

And the pro-illegals ALWAYS use the same tired garbage. "Racial profiling...what about the children...the economy sky will fall..."

Get your thumbs out of your mouths, put on some dry pants, and grow up.

I guess they thought they could live here forever and all of us would just look the other way. Forever.
Come time to atone for their sins, and they don't much like it.
Come legal and I don't care were you're from. Sneak in, and we'll put you out like the cat.

Here's a suggestion when these illegals go to any and all American services, they should provide some forms of identifcation card to prove that they are legally American citizens and if they can't provide that, then we as American should start saying No Food an No Service, Period. They might just go back to Mexico. Which is a good start, don't you agree?

Don't worry folks, illegal immigration, bloated welfare programs, inmates sitting on death row with 30 years of appeals, millionaire athletes etc. will be solved very soon. It will be called the Second Depression and it's right around the corner. The real difference between the First Depression and the impending one will be crime. With the mind set of the thugs(young African Americans both male and female)you will be killed for food.

Better ammo up!

Well for sure I am trying to save on gas there. My mistake I thought that the post was responding to another comment. By the way I am drinking my morning tea hope that's as high as I will ever be. Thanks

Oh, boo-hoo for the illegal alien criminals.

They'd better be scared. U.S. taxpayers are fed up with illegal alien criminals sucking up our benefits that should go to U.S. citizens. We are fed up with illegal alie criminals stealing low wage jobs from U.S. citizens. We are fed up with your uneducated, unskilled self and your anchor babies.

State by state we are taking away your jobs, and starting to demand proof of your status.

Go back to your country now, while you can. We don't need you, and we don't want you. We don't want you to turn the U.S. into a third-world country like the one you came from.

I like your suggestion WakeUpAmerica!
This is actually an encouraging article in some ways. Does this actually mean our government is encouraging,‘gasp’ enforcing the existing laws and promoting security in a meaningful way by perhaps actually securing our border?? Wow.‘As of late May, 49 people had been arrested by the Border Patrol and face deportation.’

49 down, how many million to go?

Discouraging in others.‘One whole family was arrested, prompting a local Roman Catholic church to raise $30,000 in bail money.’ These bleeding hearts are destroying their own country to accommodate thieves who disrespect and break the laws of this land.

Then there is the rag that printed this with their liberal slant. Trying to get sympathy for these criminals by telling us that enforcing the law is a bad thing because it has terrible consequences such as,“free English classes have seen a deep decline in attendance”.

Puh freakin’ leez give us a break. Somebody pays for all this ‘free’ entitlement stuff.
enough already..
