What a joke this whole immigration thing has become. First, they are illegal and should be returned to Mexico - this is the law.

Then we foot the bill for their school.

Then they release them - what goes?

Isn't it illegal not to pay taxes? Maybe we should all stop paying taxes. Then see how "generous" those that don't uphold the law will be. They'll have to let us off because a law is no longer a law.

The only people that are being profiled are those that pay their taxes.

RayOne, the City of Washington DC (separate government from Federal DC) has been sympathetic for a long time.

Police Chief Lenier WANTS an agreement with DHS to take part in Secure Communities. But she get stymied by the city council and even some of her own officers for it. And when something bad happens in DC crime, guess who gets the brunt of it - Lenier. How can she do her job when the council will not let her then bashes her for not doing her job.

This is exactly what the BMW's (Big Mexican Women) were talking about when they teach illegal aliens from Afghanistan how to live illegally in the U.S.

The official said most of the students were too afraid of life on the run to ever consider going AWOL — until they met the women, who assured them that many people live illegally in the U.S. and in Canada without getting caught or deported.....

And may not be deported even after being caught.

EXCLUSIVE:'BMWs' Help Afghans Go AWOL From Texas Air Base
By Jana Winter
Published July 20, 2010 | FoxNews.com

A loose network of Mexican-American women, some of whom may be illegal immigrants, have been responsible for helping numerous Afghan military deserters go AWOL from an Air Force Base in Texas, FoxNews.com has learned.
Many of the Afghans, with the women's assistance, have made their way to Canada; the whereabouts of others remain unknown. Some of the men have been schooled by the women in how to move around the U.S. without any documentation.
The Afghan deserters refer to the women as "BMWs" — Big Mexican Women — and they often are the first step in the Afghans' journey from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to Canada, a diplomatic official told FoxNews.com . He requested anonymity because he is not authorized to speak publicly during an ongoing investigation by U.S. and international authorities into who helped the Afghans leave the Defense Language Institute’s English Language Center at Lackland.
