Was he caught standing at the day laborer site in Huntington Station? Why didnt they round up more illegals while they were there and fill up the paddy wagon? When they showed up the town must have scattered like la cucorochas!

He will be back with in the next few months just like they all do.

There is more to this story, begining with why did they stop at a (bank) in Latham, N.Y. while this prisoner was being transfered to a holding facility? This part was swept under the rug...

No, we are not suffering. He went to prison b/c he committec so many crimes. When he went to renew his working papers, that's when they originally detained him. If you could see his list of crimes, you would not say "the children are living in hell" my child goes to private school, and is an honor student.
He was ready to take her to any doctor or dentist, as long as he or she spoke spanish. Even if the dentist was an idiot.
And as for "they are here to do the work..." I do work I don't want to do, but it puts food on the table, pays for our education, and her doctor, and dentist, and orthodontist. I work very hard at raising this child, I've NEVER BEEN ARRESTED. Don't tell me to have a heart, these people rape the welfare system, they are the biggest thieves, and do not I repeat do not make this country a better place. If the Hispanics want to come here, they are welcome, but ASSIMILATION is the key. Most of the Hispanics in the neighborhood are terrible. The classes are taught in their language, and not bi-lingual. Graffitti is just about everywhere.
On a personal note, this man was a nightmare. He verbally emotionally, and once physically abused me.
You do not know how it really is to live with these type of people.
I remember a long time ago on Long Island, before these thugs came, and it was beautiful. You could leave your doors open at night, they did not need to be locked. These people need to go back to El Salvador, and stay there. Have you seen their country? It is run by the gangs. And you want them here? what are you, stupid? I hate feeling so much hatred, but these people do not deserve what we offer.
When they come here they do not refer to North America as their country, they feel as though they are entitled to everything. What is this a pit stop for them?
My grandfather came here through Ellis Island, he did not bring any disease, nor his arrogance. He was humbled to live in this country!!!!!! He learned to speak English, and told all of my aunts and uncles "when you leave this house You Speak English".
My grandfather was a private garbageman.
I would not be so bitter, but Carlos was a plain and simple thief. He never really did his part. His family was so ready to "help" him. After Carlos was deported the first time, they illegally brought him back again. He was deported for a reason. He is a ctiminal, and no matter what anyone tells me, he will always be. I'm glad he is out of our lives, he was a sadistic, cruel, thoughtless, insensitive, selfish human being. I know I was with him for eleven years.

Oh, and by the way, it really pisses me off that we allow these undocumented people to receive foodstamps, health insurance, and housing.
If I do not apply for this crap,(and trust me I do have it hard,) then why the hell should we support these people? If they are able to work, then they are able to pay for their health, and educate themselves!! Whenever my child goes to the doctor, I pay cash. I do not have health insurance for her. I somehow manage to make ends meet. I do not receive an EBT card, my rent is not free. and school is not either.
So, no we are not suffering.But, Nothing that is worth having comes easy.I hate to be redundant, but if you knew the whole story, how we met, how he mistreated me, how we argued, how downright mean he was, you would be angry too. I'm glad ICE captured him.
And as for our child,[from hereon will be referred to as MY child]
is a wonderful Happy, social, witty, and kind human being. But most of all, so far a success story. No thanks to him!!!
I have very little or no use for the undocumented Hispanic people who come here. They bring their disgusting habits, and arrogance and we as citizens carry them.
I would really like to hear from anyone about this subject. I have personal experience, and would like to speak with someone who maybe had a positive experience.
Maybe I wouldn't be so opposed to these people.
