Seems to me that the Lake County Sheriffs are the only local police force doing their job in central Florida. I hope they keep it up and more local police forces take a cue from them and do their part stem an invasion that has been financially draining our country for years.

Why is it profiling if they are breaking the law by being here illegally in the first place? I don't have a problem with people wanting to come here for a better life. Just do it legally. What's the problem with that? Thousands of people do it every year. Many thousands more don't. That's a lot of the frustration that many Americans feel in regard to illegal immigration.

I live in Lake county. The part of the story not being told is this. Last year a deputy was called out on a noise complaint. When he arrived he was beaten by over 8 men who later turned out to be illegal aliens. Can you imagine they actually thought they could beat on a cop and get away with it? from that day on, the free ride in Lake county was over.

You might want to wait. The P.C. police and A.C.L.U. are coming in to tell us what lawbreakers we are for wanting the laws enforced. Yes, even in Lake County the world has turned upside down!

I think maybe one of the reasons I'm so bitter anymore is because Florida wasn't always like this. When I grew up, Florida was a great place to live. Now it seems all the freaks in the country have sifted here to the bottom. I want out!

Aside from the koala bears and the lack of Spanish speakers, I imagine it's not much different. You should all ready be used to the malaluceas and Austrailian pines. Or maybe that's just down here in South Florida. Oh, and their 'gators are bigger than ours. LOL

Most Americans will say the same about their communities. Running away from the invasion will only delay the inevitable. Take a stand and fight for what rightfully belongs to us. Call your local radio stations, write your local papers, and keep pressure on the politicians that allow the invasion and those that do nothing to stop it.

Thats exactly what the residents of Lake County did! Now The A.C.L.U. is threatning to bankrupt the County with slapsuits.
