That will have a dramatic impact on Oregon farms, hotels, restaurants and other businesses that rely on immigrant labor, Mejia said.
Ultimately, he said, the law will drive up the cost of food for Oregonians.“The effect is going to be totally negative to the overall community,” he said. ""
The tax payers are supporting how many in jails? It's time they support themselves, their children who are on public assistance and pay restitution by getting out there and doing these menial jobs! Welfare recipients could earn their handouts. We've been too PC for too long. It used to be that recipients couldn't have phones, now they get reduced rates for phones. Halt the gravy train in it's tracks and require everyone to contribute to their own upkeep. We don't need illegal workers, we need common sense.

I have to renew my license. I have to bring in my birth certificate, social security card and two proofs of address. I used to be able to just renew online. The illegals just drive with no license or insurance while we citizens now have to spend hours just for a renewal.

A large drug ring dealing crack cocaine and heroin in the Reading area was broken Wednesday when 19 members were charged as part of an investigation by federal, state and local officials, authorities said.

The Santana drug trafficking organization had been operating since February 2009, which is when the investigation started, officials said during a press conference in City Hall.

They gave this account:

Ringleader Steven J. Santana Jr., 27, of Reading and 10 other federally indicted associates were buying wholesale quantities of drugs from suppliers in New York City and elsewhere, processing and packaging the drugs and then selling them to other drug dealers, mainly in Reading.

Ten of those charged federally are from Reading and the other is from New York City.

In addition, eight others face state charges for their alleged roles in the operation.

The arrests began Wednesday at 6 a.m., mostly in Reading. More than 100 law enforcement officers took part.

Of the 19 who were charged, 10 were taken into custody, including seven of those charged federally.

The rest were still being sought Wednesday night, said U.S. Attorney Zane D. Memeger of the Eastern District office.

The probe is part of the ongoing federally funded 222 Corridor Anti-Gang Initiative, an effort by federal, state and local authorities targeting drugs, gangs and violent crime in cities along Route 222 from Easton to York.

Most of the charges against the Santana gang are drug related, although he is also charged with possessing a gun while trafficking drugs. He and Omar Shivers-Spencer, 21, of Reading are also charged with selling a firearm to a convicted felon.

The organization had used coded language over cell phones to disguise their drug operations, but investigators broke the code and shut them down, Memeger said.

In addition to selling large amounts of drugs in Reading, the group operated in Wyomissing and other undisclosed locations in Berks County, York and Harrisburg, he said.

Reading police, state police and the Berks County district attorney's office and sheriff's department took part in the investigation.

"These are very significant arrests, and we're hoping this will have a lasting impact on the crime picture here in Reading," city police Chief William M. Heim said.

Reading police Chief William M. Heim.


Reading police Chief William M. Heim said Monday that he doesn't believe a weekend melee in which a crowd fought with police was related to another large fight a week earlier.

Nine city men were arrested in the melee that broke out about 1:30 a.m. Sunday outside the A-Town Cafe at 10th and Elm streets, police said.

It was the second weekend in a row that city police had to call in the department's K-9 unit to help disperse an unruly crowd of at least 100 onlookers while officers responded to street violence.

On May 15, police were surrounded by about 150 spectators, some of whom shouted at officers and refused to back off, as police handcuffed a man at the scene of a shooting at Front and Elm streets, investigators said.

No officers were hurt in either fracas. In both incidents, police used Tasers and arrested several people on charges of failing to disperse and disorderly conduct.

Heim doesn't believe the two fights are a trend.

"Hopefully, these are two incidents that aren't related," he said. "This does happen from time to time."

Even so, he said, they are troubling.

"It's a huge concern for us because not only do we have to deal with the root problem - a shooting or bar disturbance - but then the officers need to deal with a crowd of people that insert themselves into situations rather than remove themselves," Heim said. "This makes it very dangerous for the officer and for the people who hang around."

Some of the crowd had been inside the bar early Sunday, police said.

According to police:

As officers arrived, three men - Juan Torres-Torres, 21; Angel Alvarez-Lopez, 19; and Omar Baez-Cintron, 21 - were fighting. They subdued Baez-Cintron with a Taser.

As police scuffled with the men, people in the crowd fought with officers who were trying to disperse them.

At one point, Angel L. Ramos, 26, threw a chair into the side of a police car, breaking the passenger-side mirror.

Police needed about 20 minutes to break up the fight and disperse the crowd.

All of those arrested were committed to Berks County Prison after arraignment before District Judge Thomas M. Gauby Sr. in Reading Central Court.

Those arrested, the charges and their bail:

• Torres-Torres of the 100 block of North Ninth Street, failing to disperse and disorderly conduct.$25,000.

• Alvarez-Lopez of the 1000 block of Douglass Street, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct,$25,000.

• Baez-Cintron of the 300 block of North Front Street, disorderly conduct,$10,000.

• Ramos of the 900 block of Elm Street, institutional vandalism and failing to disperse,$25,000.

• Jose Indino-Colon, 30, of the 200 block of North Front Street, resisting arrest and failing to disperse,$25,000.

• Jose Ramirez-Vargas, 32, of the 500 block of North Front Street, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct,$10,000.

• Esteban Madera, 18, of the 700 block of North Ninth Street, obstructing justice, failing to disperse, underage drinking and resisting arrest,$10,000.

• Antwaun Johnson, 23, of the 900 block of Elm Street, failing to disperse and disorderly conduct,$10,000.

• Vidal Antonio-Fernandez, 22, of the 3000 block of Stoudts Ferry Bridge Road, Muhlenberg Township, failing to disperse,$5,000.

People are wondering if this is true and if this has any reason why illegal immigrants were told they would be accepted as legal next year? I dont know but we want to know if this is true.

I agree!!! It's about time our state quit being a haven for illegals. Of course, unless the Mexican government fixes its problems, Mexicans will continue to leave their country in droves.
