I grew up in the area near the town of worthington were one of the raids took place, i feel that nothing wrong has taking place i feel bad for the children that have been affected but their parents are still crimanls most of all the ones who are suspected of identify theft which effects other peoples lives. The Law was enforced nothing more.

The raid was due to the fact that these illegals stole the IDENTIFICATIONS OF LEGAL RESIDENTS! Should we let illegals break every law because they broke laws to get in America? I cannot believe the stupidity of do gooders who have no facts about illegals...i.e. drug dealing, crime, false I.D.s,etc., or concerns, for the legal, and tax paying people of the U.S.

When Illegal use of SS # the IRS fines owners of SS# for "UNREPORTED INCOME". It is against the law. So the real tax payer has the 'unreported income' added to their tax burden, they have to pay extra tax on that PLUS fines and a penalty. Hire their own attorney to try and prove their are not guilty.

First the US citizens of the SS#'s used were arrested, later a pattern of employment led to
swift. At Swift many people were using the same SS#'s. The numbers went to real people.

The church should realize this is the tip of the iceburg, school taxes go up, hospital taxes, cost of police... Much money is sent back to Mexico. When arrested 'a right to an attorney' means our tax dollars are spent to represent these people in our country ILLEGALLY. They are Criminals. Anchor babies (not in Constitution) get all kinds of AID, no doubt this leads to children having babies to add to family income.

It is high time we started rooting out illegals and their employers. This country has immigration laws. You want to come in legally fine, but the back door needs to be shut now!
Why do these priest think they even have a right to sound off in this matter? That is NOT their job nor their concern. Jerks like this only encourage the overflow of illegals.
PRIESTS, KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT OF POLITICS! Maybe you need to be tending to those of you with a problem with perversion instead of concerning yourself in areas you have no right being in.
Go back and make up lies for your dad sweetheart.

Politics-priests should stay clear of but man's inhumanity to man-we need to be in that fray.

You all just piss me off with your bantering back and forth. This is not your country. I don't care if you were born here or not. All your ancestors came from over seas. This is where all of you came from. The only people that belong here are the Natives, Native Indians that is. And for your information, if you knew anything about history, the Mexicans are a part of the blood line. Not you all. So quit your bitching because well put up with you for 500 plus years. Who are you to lay claims on this land? No one! So why don't you all go back to the land of your ancestors and leave us alone. We were here first, and it was much nicer and quieter until you all came along. GO AWAY ALL OF YOU!!!!
