How about we start this little debate with you learning to speak and spell correctly! As to why I am concerned about his legal status, it's because I am extremely concerned with the illegal alien invasion of illiterate, uneducated criminals and their families spreading across my beautiful Country like a cancer, a pestilence, a disease, wreaking havoc wherever it spreads to, sucking the life blood out of hard working, tax-paying real Americans.
I brought up Gonzales' legal status because if he is here illegally, well he shouldn't even be here in the first place, and secondly, if he is here illegally, I'd have no pity whatsoever over what happened to him. It happens to Americans daily at the hands of illegal swine alien crap from Mexico and all areas south.
Really first of all don't worry about my spelling or writing... because am pretty sure you understand me... illegal's is not only Mexican get that through you brain, illegal are crossing your beautiful country from every where....Africa, China, Central America... etc.. the list goes on, your the only one that focus on Mexico because your racist.....

I worry more when a kid gets sexually molested by a pedophile, when a child gets abducted when someone gets killed innocently... I don't worry about how many illegal are here that's why there is immigration laws they take care of that...

It is a pretty long stretch to assume that the man in the article is an illegal alien based on the information in the article. Unless you have more information then what is reported here there is no basis for that conclusion.

I think some people are talking about income tax, not sales tax. You don't even pay sales tax on food goods do you? When someone is dealing with a large amount of cash like that, it would be easy to cheat the system on income tax.

Your grammar proves otherwise. You can not tell me that you are a legal citizen of the United states of America. If that's the kind of education they are handing out we are completely s c r e w e d! If you aren't illegal then I'm sure some of your friends are. Do us a favor tell tell your illegal friends we said to quit pooping out the babies, stop collecting welfare, WIC and foodstamps, quit commiting crimes and running back to the motherland , quit clogging up our schools with your a n c h o r trash, stop ruining our neighborhoods by living 27 to a house, we don't like your circus music, no staring at our woman like a discusting pig, get car insurance, quit dealing your drugs that you bring up here from Mexico. And last but not least STOP robbing people. That's not racism so don't try and pull that card, we're all sick to death of the illegal aliens we want you to go home and I hope hope hope that Colorado becomes like Arizona because that would mean you would leave, no I don't think that we would get that lucky because the illegals are great at stealing people's identitys and getting around everything and working the system like a bloodsucker. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.
One more thing how come your woman dress up like their going to the prom, w hen their only going to the flea market to b e in 120 degree weather, they look stupid.

<quoted text>Than I would apologize if you are such a woman of American integrity.. My posts were of concern of the term cash only business .. I did see the video on the story.. I was not the one to start the illegal Alien stuff although I would normally be one of the first....But since you asked and so many people don't know..A lot of this started around here in the 70s,, Guatemalans,, Columbians, Nicaraguans and Mexicans etc.were flooding America [but Ill speak for Colorado] and as a young carpenter it went from a high paying , satisfying occupation.. Where a man took pride in what he was building because he was paid well for his knowledge ,experience and integrity.. American integrity..It took everyone on the crew to be educated in codes , blue prints, structure building, tools, fasteners and so much education on how to build safely, properly and for longevity.. A well paying job with satisfaction..Americans were happy and proud..Your House was built well back then... not now.. and unless you have an older home you know exactly what I mean.. I don't have to explain all the problems you are experiencing or all the crooked things you noticed... MISSING NAILS , BOARDS FALLING OFF,, FENCE FALLING APART...They don't read tape measures or blue prints,, they know nothing about codes or how to treat tools..they have no integrity and don't give a rats butt how Gringo Whiteycrackers house is built... In no time illegal crews were taking over and you couldn't get hired without a crew yourself and willing to take the bottom prices...Americans were phased out.. you ask how can they get away with it.. Well CORPORATIONS,, BIG BUILDERS....Homestead, Lennar, RICHMOND,,KB HOMES, Shea, All THE REST AS WELL ARE HIRING THESE CREWS... NOT AMERICANS...YOU ASK HOW DO THEY GET AROUND BACKGROUND CHECKS..Well only the crew leader gets the check in his name....The builders know this..The crew leader gets the check and pays the crew in cash...Some of them are family and live with him..so he deducts rent.. Ive seen it ...many times. MEXICO IS BUILDING AMERICA. And then we rebuild it..Its in my back yard right now.. This is the short version...WHEN YOUR WARRANTY EXPIRES ON YOUR MEXICAN BUILT HOME YOU'LL BE SORRY.. Ms. Lagitana you asked why I hate Illegals..There's your sign.....

Don't really have a problem with China,Africa, Europe...there wise one. You should go have a sit down with your little illegal law breaking friends. There's a reasons why we don't want them here. Their like cockroaches , like a sickness that just breeds and breeds. Why is it every single Mexican that is more then likely pregnant? Flea market is a great place to prove this, you know damn well they are having those babies on Medicaid and that is just wrong wrong wrong. When they stop rolling up to their WIC appointments in their escalades, and quit breeding, and go home then I'll be happy. But until then I'll continue to call ICE on their illegal arse. And yes you sound like a complete breed er yourself home skillet;) Go home nobody wants you here! Figure it out!

Arizona's new immigration enforcement law has polarized the state and the country. While a federal judge temporarily blocked the most controversial parts of the law, as Ariz. Governor Jan Brewer said "This fight is far from over."

A few dangerous fringe groups have threatened to take the fight one step further. One armed Neo-Nazi leader patrolling the Arizona desert has even threatened to kill any immigrants he sees crossing the border.

Just days before the court ruling, President Obama arranged for 1,200 National Guard troops to report to the southwest border to assist federal and local law enforcement agencies. It's an important move to deter any threats of race-based violence. Regardless of their legal status, every person has the right to safety.

Tell President Obama that the Federal government needs to be ready to protect everyone at the Arizona border area from potential violence and racially-motivated attacks.

Not a chance. The law hasn't polarized our country. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS have polarized this country.

Last year, Mexicans killed over 450 people in the counties along the Mexican border. The National parks along the border have been closed off to Americans because of Mexicans and their violent nature.

You need to send your letter to Mexico and have them stop their criminal culture from slithering across our borders and into our American communities.

There are few concepts more ingrained in our democracy than the idea that, as a nation of immigrants, birth on this soil qualifies anyone for the rights and privileges bestowed to all Americans. It is a philosophy rooted in a bloody move away from slavery and ingrained, in the aftermath of the Civil War, in the 14th Amendment when a slave named Dred Scott had the audacity to sue for his freedom and the freedom of his family in federal court and was turned away because, he was told, the Constitution recognized neither his humanity nor his citizenship.

But old habits die hard, and the most vitriolic fringes of the right have long called for an end of the 14th Amendment's guarantee of "birthright citizenship". Those calls have become amplified as the rhetoric surrounding immigration reform and the reality of the racialized intent and impact of Arizona's SB 1070 became apparent.

Invasion by Birth Canal
This most recent iteration has come in the form of an "invasion by birth canal". a racist talking point that insists that women illegally cross the border for the sole purpose of "dropping" an "anchor baby" knowing that the guaranteed citizenship for their children makes the chances of their own arrest and deportation much murkier.

If only this were simply the talking point of proud racists like Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce. But it's a theory that has gained some steam, most notably from Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell who just yesterday called for hearings on the proposed revision or outright repeal of the 14th Amendment. Apparently word got out about that call for hearings as today McConnell backed away from those statements, choosing to call for an "educational exercise" instead.

Targeting WomenIt is one thing to use immigrant-bashing to score political points, particularly with midterm elections right around the corner. It is repugnant, sure, but effective as the GOP has shown that immigration will be the wedge-issue of choice for elections to come. But it is another thing entirely when elected officials like Pearce call for outwardly targeting women, both figuratively and literally. We've seen the results in places like Utah where women's names and social security numbers were published for the sole purpose of targeting those women and chasing them out of town--and that, I believe, is a generous interpretation of what the goal of publication was.

To engage in the kind of campaign that the right is currently waging requires nothing short of a total dehumanization of its target, just as it was in the days prior to the passage of the 14th Amendment when slaves were utterly dehumanized by the law and in political rhetoric. That same rhetoric is now thrown at immigrants, and most disgustingly, toward women and children.

It is no surprise then that the same themes appear in this debate as were present during the Dred Scott days, including the protection of American society from an ever-encroaching dark menace. It is just a sad, sad day for this country when our elected officials are seriously suggesting a return to the time when that rhetoric was an acceptable political platform.

McInnis, is that you? You're supposed to list your sources when you copy and paste. I thought you would have learned your lesson after the water article. I am wondering why that Arizona law is considered racist. When they make a traffic stop and suspect drugs they search the car. How come nobody stands up for the drug dealers rights? If they see a couple boxes of ammunition they make suspect guns and search for them.

As we prosecute another illegal for murder...and illegals cost us money ,,some tard chimes in with worthless propaganda.. There's no dought of your intentions..to try to convince us that we should let all of your criminal relatives in America..THE ANSWER IS NO...YOU are not convincing anyone with your unsupported claims..We seek justice.. something illegals fear..we will not tolerate protesters being bussed in...we know your game and the only reason you spew lies like you do is to try to convince that one humanitarian that might be on the fence..But I bet everyone here has experienced crime or violence caused by your kind and that sticks in our minds as we vote.. Its time to take care of America...Did you see that Lindsy Graham of NC is calling for the reversal of American citizenship to A.N.C.H.O.R.S...that's great and soon Colorado will do the same.. several states are on board..YOU WILL NOT PROTEST YOUR WAY INTO AMERICA..IT PISSES US OFF...YOU CANT INSULT US INTO SUBMISSION..YOU ARE CRIMINALS AND WILL BE DELT WITH AS SUCH..EVERYDAY I SEE ILLEGALS ABUSING OUR LAND AND PEOPLE..GO BACK PEACEFULLY OR GO BACK BY FORCE....IMPEACHMENT IS IMMANENT.AMERICANS ARE AGAINST OBABMANIZE..THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED HIM ARE SEEING WHAT A MISTAKE IT WAS AND MANY ARE GOING BACK TO MEXICO....We are taking back America...it feels good...I noticed all the fast food places are hiring Americans only in my hood...Its about time..Cant wait to see the faces of all the little A.N.C.H.O.R.S.."whaaattt were moving to Mexico"....wish I could be there to see that...

These stupid comments would not have been written if the victim was a white a** vendor. It's incredible how the fangs of discrimination come into play when actually this was a person trying to make a living.
As compared to many that plainly refuse to work, i applaud Gonzalez. I am in no position of question his legal status but as a human being, no one deserves this.
It seems like too many people are running scared for fear of losing their jobs to those illegals. Don't worry, if you have a decent job, they are no competition for you. If you work long hours in the hot sun for minimum pay,maybe. If you plan to apply for admission at Harvard, maybe. The illegals' children are not settling for any less. No I don't like it either. That's just reality.
