I'm sure it was just racial profiling and they demanded to see his birth certificate, which of course everyone carries. Sue them, then call ICE and report some of those police as illegal and see if they carry their birth certificates around!

If hispanics continue to support illegal aliens over their fellow citizens and the scum from Mexico continue to infest the us, American hispanics are going to be mistaken for Mexican scum and arrested. Tough. Just stop supporting wet backs and your fears are over. North American, answer me, you're a lowlife Cuban aren't you?

As if that were the reason innocent Hispanics get picked up.

Idiot.

And before you ask, I'm probably whiter than you, racist.

There's 11 million illegal aliens (wag) in our country and 6.6 million of them are Mexicans!

So Mendoza didn't have a valid driver's license or proof of car insurance?

Why??

Looks like he was taking lessons from the illegal aliens!

And pretty much all of them that can work are employed and being paid by an American, most likely a Republican business owner.

When you start arresting the facilitators, you might see some change,

Until then, hungry Mexicans with mouths to feed will continue to come here and work.

hey cricket, long time, how are you doing?

i, however would have thought that you would do better than tacitly approve of this man's constitutional rights being trampled into the ground.

"There's 11 million illegal aliens (wag) in our country and 6.6 million of them are Mexicans!" that comment helps the conversation how? an American citizen was illegally detained!

If US-born Hispanics support, defend, identify with, and campaign for illegal aliens simply because of a shared culture (that is, being vile, vulgar and violent) and language, then they a will continue to be mistaken for them. If they have no ID, like Mendoza, they will be locked up. The VAST MAJORITY of illegal aliens are criminals, other than simply being in the country illegally. If you don't want to be thought of as an illegal alien, then make certain there are no illegal aliens on the country that look like you.

And for those on thus forum who have accused me of being a racist, Mexicans are not a race, Hispanics are not a race, Americans are not a race. Those of you who continue to believe they are just hard working, innocent people are fools. You have been brainwashed. In New Mexico where illegal aliens are allowed to have drivers licenses, 48% have been used to commit some kind of fraud. The Mexicans in this country will never assimilate, will never learn to speak English, will be a burden on the taxpayers for generations, will fill our jails, destroy our education system and overburden health care facilities forever. They know thus, but they don't care because they hate whites. Illegal aliens are the REAL RACISTS. Turner, Frito Juan and now strel, GFY.

I'm a full blooded caucasion American whose ancestors came from Lithuania (through Ellis Island), from England, and Ireland (in a rickety old boat). Immigrants need a chance, especially if they were already on this continent for hundreds of years! I have many legal and illegal North American friends from Canada all the way down to Panama and its great to meet and learn about other cultures and most North Americans have very similar values but maybe a different language. Pero si, aprendí el español para entender mas mis amigos de norteamerica que estan estudiando el ingles.

excuse me? this man was stopped on a bogus charge; his son's boxing medal was hanging from his rear view mirror. he was legally arrested [although that is questionable based on the bogus stop] for not having a dl but then was illegally held for 4 days when he should have been bonded out immediately or after 48 hours when immigration did not come to pick him up. as for your claim about having no id, his family presented his id and they still held him.

"he gave deputies his name, address and Social Security number, and that law enforcement officials repeatedly turned away Mendoza's wife and son when they tried to present Mendoza's naturalization certificate, Social Security card and other documents to prove his citizenship." read the article.

those are the facts. this case will never go to court. his constitutional rights were certainly trample on. sadly it seems to be ok with you. it will be settled. nebraska nor any other state can not afford to lose their right to stop someone for hanging a boxing medal from their mirror.

oh, and btw after reading your vile hateful post, you're a racist.

funny, he is an American citizen, the article never mentions a lack of english as being a problem, yet you assume it possible made them think he was illegal. what does that make you?
btw, you do realize that there is a whole ethnic population of natural born American citizens who do not necessarily speak english?

and that is the reason that since he was a "naturalized" American citizen we can assume that he spoke english.

I am absolutely positive that Mendoza's and his family's version of what happened is the absolute, unequivocal truth. I base this assumption on the fact that it is a well-known fact that Mexicans are incapable of lying, committing fraud, cheating on their income taxes, taking welfare to which they are not entitled, using false or stolen identities, driving drunk or falsely claiming racism if an American brings their vile, vulgar and violent lifestyle to their attention. Yes, Mexicans are perfect angels. In fact, they never march in our streets calling Americans racists, desecrate our flag and denounce whites as crackers and hillbillies. It is the police, nay, it all white Americans, who are Nazis for mistreating this walking POS and the horde of vermin that has infested the US. You are such a fool it actually defies description.

You have some serious issues. Although you are being sarcastic of course, it is still obvious that you do see the world in very black and white terms, or brown and white as the case may be.
This post reveals a lot more about you than you realize, I think.

Google Julio Acevedo and read how this hardworking and law-abiding Mexican, who just happened to have been in this country without benefit of some inconsequential paperwork and who had already served time in prison for manslaughter, ran into and killed a newlywed couple and their unborn son while driving drunk (his second DUI in less than two weeks), then ran like the coward he is and now claims someone was shooting at him. How many of these scumbags are among the millions of illegal aliens you so strongly defend? BTW. Go 'Noles.
