I think the way they approached the people in Ellensburg was not right. They made it seem like it was a major emergency city alert. What happened to coming to the right address and not causing a great scandal. I understand that there are people who do not like illegals, but stop and think where you came from, your ancestors origin. Why judge people without knowing who they are? When Jesus died in the cross, he did not choose race, color, origin, religion, etc. It is sad that living here in the United States we cannot get along with each other as a united nation. There was a commnent made that illegals do not pay taxes, but what about when they earn a paycheck, everything is deducted as if they've been working as a legal resident?

This whole entire county judicial system is corporate. I was sitting in court and yes I am from out of town Seattle area. Well you know I knew that I saw some locals from the area( red neck) type who were charged with the same things I was but guess what let off with nothing, Then I comes to me lets just through the book at him heís from out of town lets screw him over. I think that day I counted 8 people from the Seattle area. Not only that but there public defender must be on the payroll too b/c she is absolutely no help at all Iíve tried to contact her numerous time with no prevail.
