If the Maury County Sheriff is profiling illegal aliens, then instead of investigating him they should give him a bounty for every illegal alien invader he catches and sends back to Mexico. We ought to treat the illegal aliens here the way Mexico treats illegal Guatemalans and Nicaraguans there. They shoot them on site.

Today I'm driving near Maury Co. I haven't seen such lousy driving since I left Monterrey, Mexico. Then I started looking who was behind the wheel.

Ther paper here in Knoxville says the Constitution covers citizens against what happened here. They are not legal so I say the only thing that should cover them is a double-barrelled shotgun. You go Sheriff I'm behind you.

The Maury County Sheriff needs to remember that he is hired to enforce state and county law, not federal law. He should go back to his doughnuts and leave the immigrants to the feds. Furthermore, I hope the ACLU and Catholic Church tell these folks about their rights, and inform them that they don't have to answer ANY questions posed to them by these Hillbilly Nazis.

We have already left the immigration issue to the Feds. Look what happened! 13 million new neighbors!

Writerman, go vote for your own Sheriff. Take care of what is important in your neighborhood. There are no hills and no hillbillies in this countryside. You are not the Catholic you think you are.

IF CERTAIN LEGISLATORS HAVE THIER WAY THE ILLEGALS MAY NOT BE ILLEAGAL BY THE YEAR 2010.

HAS ANYONE HEARD OF THE NORTH AMERICAN UNION?

YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO A SEARCH ON IT.

IT IS A PLAN TO UNITE U.S.,CANADA, AND MEXICO INTO ONE COUNTRY ERASING ALL BORDERS.
ALSO THIS WILL END THE US CONSTITUTION WHEN IT HAPPENS.

WORST OF ALL, IT'S ALREADY IN THE WORKS SIGNED BY PRESIDENT BUSH TWICE UNDER THE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT AND IS SET TO TAKE PLACE IN 2010.

THERE IS ALSO A GOOD AMOUNT OF INFO ABOUT THIS ON CNN AND YOUTUBE.

ok these illegal immigrants are so devoted to their faith? Why didnt they read the part in the bible where it says to obey the laws of the land! As far as them driving without a license thats an issue the local police will be asked to enforce. If they let them drive without license and insurance our premiums will continue to go up.

LOCAL POLICE ARE ENFORCING AND ARRESTING THOSE FOUND TO BE DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE. THEY JUST PAY THE FINES AND CONTINUE TO DRIVE ANYWAY. THE FINES ARE THE SAME FOR THE 20TH OFFENSE AS THEY ARE THE 1ST.

I HAVE A IDEA!!!
WHAT IF EVERYONE HAD TO SHOW VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE AND PROOF OF INSURANCE BEFORE THEY COULD GET A REGISTRATION PLATE AND THOSE HAVING BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF DRIVING WITHOUT INSURANCE AND NO DL'S HAVE THIER REGISTRATION PLATES CONFISCATED.
IT SURE WOULD MAKE IT EASIER TO IDENTIFY THOSE DRIVER'S ON THE ROAD.

Laws change overnight

I find it interesting that the same people who say laws should be obeyed like they are from the Bible will in the same sentence cuss out those that make the laws. Kind of ironic. Laws change overnight. Something that is so evil for breaking today tomorrow could be allowable if the law just changed. The system is broke. There is no way for these people to come legally. There is a 10 year wait! So make a reasonable system and enforce it but what we have now is a system that doesn't work for either side. They get taken advantage of but yet they can disappear and not have to pay bills, can commit crimes and disappear since we don't know who is here anyway. They are not allowed to have a drivers license but yet we complain they don't know how to drive and they don't have insurance so there are more hit and runs. Obviously both sides of this are broken. The solution is not to just round up everyone and deport them. We have to many people here that don't want to work, to many businesses that don't want to pay decent wages and a whole class of workers that are taken advantage of in a variety of ways not to mention living in fear. I can see it from both sides. Again fix the system. Register them at the border, make them pay an entry fee like they pay coyotes in Mexico. Deport them if they have any run ins with the law but if they want to work- let them work!!

I think the one's that are here illegally should be sent back or be punish like they would punish us. We have to paid taxes and they come over and take our money to sent back to their families over there. They are right about so many families living in one house. also it is taking away from our kids by having to teach there lanuage cause they dont want to learn our lanuage. If we went there they wouldnt cater to us and teach our lanuage. So if they are going to come here they should have to learn our lanuage and we have had several police officer shot by them. so we are just taking our money and saying here take it and do what you want. we are taking away from our own kids.

i am happy they are sending them back. and to comment on this issue that immigration is federal law and he should leave it to the feds..to what if committed a federal law like shooting a mailman and the sheriff seen it is he not supposed to arrest me and hold me until the feds get here...in your world i guess he would just turn his head and say that is not my job

We have the Best of the Best in County Government. Sheriff George is the Man of the Year in this house. He thinks a law is a law. Illegal immigrants arebreaking the law. Build the Wall...Put them in buses and cart off to the Border. Put the Minitemen on the Borber to escort them back across . And you have to be born of legal parents to be a citizen here ... God Bless America and God Bless our Troops and Law emforcement who put their lives on the line 24/7
