And yet the US is profiling?
And they wonder why AZ has come to enforce such a law.
Complete ignorance.

These four fools are the only one's using the US Postal Service and the judge throws them in jail? They could have cut their shipping costs and improved their profit by using FedEx.

First the U.S Postal service was complaining about losing business to computer-internet users. Here you have these 4 fellows trying to give them some business and this is how they express their gratitude to them.
Never satisfied.
I bet they won't do business with the U.S Postal service anymore.lol

the 1st 2 titles of news on paper mention immigrants i guess thats how they like to get the attention of everyone by putting immigrant on every title of newspaper. whats next, a boy who bought an icecream was an immigrant the way things are going just to get people to read.

If they would have just carried it across the border and got caught they would have just been sent home with no charges filed.

Quit busting these potheads, the jails are full of them, and we are paying to keep them there. Legalize it and let's get on with taxing the crap out of it.

When are YOU going to stop relating "illegal"drugs with "illegal" immigrants? There are people who deals with pot and they could be black,white,chinese indian or south american not necessarly an "illegal mexican" the problem here is that while racism runs rampant in AMERICA, when times are lean is always the poor mexican's fault legal or illegal,sort the scum that manages to sneak the border and help those who are truly desesperate to feed their families,we have a moral obligation to help the poor regardless of their origins black,white or whatever, and while some people are waiting in line to come here (a member of my family has been waiting for 2 years now)others manage to come across in desperation,I surely wont go treking through the desert in 100 + temperatures if I didn't need to.
