Keep up the great work Sheriff. This had the results you look for. Some are leaving on their own. The BS contention that legal persons are leaving because of it is just that BS. If they are Hispanic, Latino, Mexican, etc and are legal they have nothing to worry about unless the violate the law. Even then they have no need to fear deportation if they are legal. As far as "ILLEGAL ALIENS" not reporting crime for fear of deportation. I got an idea. Get LEGAL. Then that fear vanishes.

LMAO...talk about ridiculous, uneducated and idiotic - you fit that description!

Whatis a "so called free country"? This is a free country -- we have FREEDOM for its citizens. A free country means its citizens have freedoms, not that any tom, dick & harry can march on in here without following our immigration laws. Apparently you didn't do very well in school.

We did just fine without illegal aliens, and we'll do even better once they leave. Believe it. If you think they are so great and doing so much for this country, WHY DOES THEIR COUNTRY LOOK LIKE IT DOES? They share common land with us, and yet we have a nicely built up country, while they do not. It's not *them* doing anything, it's us doing it and them riding on our hard work. If they were the ones doing it, they could do it in their country, too.

You have to admit Rebel, they do work very hard!!! HARD at making our country LOOK just like theirs!!! People are totally fed up with their garbage!!! "Comprehensive" reform for the illegals is not gonna happen!!! We the people won't let it happen!!! If people only knew what hundreds of miles of our border with "mehico" looked like they would be appalled!!! Filthy garbage,strewn for hundreds of miles!!! Where's the environmentalists? The aclu? Yeah, how did we ever make it without these wonderful "invaders?" I'll tell you how: MUCH BETTER!!!

Dana did it ever dawn on you that there is a way for legal aliens to come into this country? Illegal is just that, these people make up 27% of our prisons. Illegal aliens cause 3500 of our people to be murdered each year. Illegal aliens cause all Americans taxes to rise. Just for starters. http://www.americanborderpatrol.com/

This is an area where nothing is done to collect and return the illegals.Our court system now has a whole column showing the D.U.I.,the reckless driving,the vehicles abandoned after an accident,the drunken errests,etc.There are too many or too few,maybe for ice to do much.We get the news some are picked up for the second or third time for coming illegally.It was great to hear of I.C,E. doing and arrest and deportation,GO ICE.

Good comments now go and tell your congressmen and women? Demand that illegals be rounded up and removed from our country, demand that the borders be closed. Demand that all illegals in our prisons be expelled back to mexico. Demand "illegals" not get drivers liscenses. Demand "illegals" cannot get jobs without work visas.
DEMAND We need to do so much more, we need to support those on the line working to keep illegals out. JMO

I do that all the time - www.numbersusa.com and www.congress.com are two of the best places...faxes and e-mails. Of course, I'm dealing with idiots down here, but I write them anyway.

It's none of your business what anyone will do. What YOU *should* do is brush up on your literacy skills...you know, your English skills.

There was plenty to do all over this country before illegals, and so shall there be after ya'll go home.

See ya! Make sure yo pack your bags and are prepared for your trip. If you don't get on home on your own (like normal, good people would do in order right their wrong) then don't whine and complain when you're caught up in a raid and ceremoniously deported.

LMAO! If I hadn't moved here, I'd be dealing with them, also. He he.

As it is, I have Martinez and Nelson -- definitely not brain surgeons and definitely not *for* the citizens of this country...and that goes especially for Martinez who is a Cuban and naturalized citizens.

We are so in trouble if Obama wins...I can't believe he made it as far as he did. <sigh> Shows how many crazy people we have living here...

In my opinion...everyone needs to stop and think about people as human beings. Yes, these people that we call illegal or non documented workers came into this country with out permission. I think some of the people that are against this act as if these people committed murder, rather I believe they just ran a red light. It was the thing to do, most of these people are here to work and make a life for their family. Why is it that people just can't understand that? I am all for sending criminals back, the ones that have records....but the ones that are here working day after day, why can't we just leave them be. Why can't we charge these people a huge fine and have them become legal residence. If the government charged thousands of dollars for people to pay as a fine to coming here illegally, as long as they have a clean record they can get the paper work and come and go as they please...this could possibly help our economy....sending back 12 million people will take away from our economy...although there are some that believe that illegals hurt us financially...don't these people buy groceries, pay electric....etc...
I don't want to argue, I just want maybe some of the more conservative thinkers to try to think of these people as human beings with feelings...instead of treating them so awful

Everyone is human. That does not give one the right to break laws -- of any country. Drug dealers (selling to consenting adults) are just supporting themselves...do we not arrest, prosecute and jail them because they're working to put food on the table? Your idea of a "good" reason to break the law is laughable, and not reality. It would be impossible to say there's a "good" reason to break the law -- by whose standards? Who determines what is a good reason and if the "good" reason given is actually a valid one and the truth? We have laws. No one is exempt from them. We have a legal way to immigrate here. Use it or don't come. That legal way is in place to protect citizens and the country as a whole. We cannot afford to allow in all the poor people of the world, and if you look at it, there are far poorer countries than Mexico, yet just because we share a border with them, we should give them preferential treatment? I think not.
