This is why shit sucks down here. NC is becoming Mexico. It's not only embarrassing, but scary to think that everywhere your children go without you, there are undocumented people that would love to do harm. I'm terrified of these pervert disgusting aliens. I don't give a shit if they want a better life. They can bitch to their own President, and quit ruinging everything down here.

I didn't appreciate visiting the Outer Banks, all the way down to Hatteras, seeing how many Mexicans, their women and baby carriages, too. What's worse is, all of the locals and youth who previously had jobs were out of work and forced to drive to mainland only to encounter the same thing.....when I returned home, I called the Congressional Rep's office in NC and stated just how repulsive it was.....two years have gone by and look where we are.....and they're at the resorts up and down our coasts during the spring, summer, and fall - then its back to Mexico to live like kings off of our backs and yet those that hire them to do anything haven't told themselves; cheaper now, costlier in the long rum....that goes for all of the poor-quality MADEINCHINA crap......

"The Sheriff's Office only has authority to check the immigration status of people entering the jail who have been charged with a crime, Cloninger said.

"We assisted the ICE agent who came to the scene," he said. "We have no authority under our ICE delegation to make outside checks."


The Bail Reform Act of 1984 created a powerful detention provision that authorizes a state of local police officer to arrest any alien other than a legal permanent resident for a federal “offense,” and to request a local magistrate to temporarily detain the alien for up to ten days without bail while awaiting transfer into federal custody, so long as the alien is found to be a “flight risk” or danger to any other person or the community.”

The authority to make arrest for federal offenses under 18 U.S.C. 3041 extends to state and local law enforcement officers.(U.S. v Bowdach, 561 F.2d 1160, 1168 (5th Cir. 1977) An illegal alien is an inherent flight risk.

Supreme Court Ruling Razes Artificial Fire Wall Between Local Law Enforcement and Immigration Enforcement (Muehler v. Mena) 9-0 Landmark Decision (Washington D.C.—April 1, 2005) In its March 22 ruling in the case of Muehler v. Mena, the Supreme Court removed barriers that prevent local law enforcement officers from questioning the immigration status of individuals they suspect to be in the United States illegally. In this groundbreaking decision, the high Court rejected the claim of Ira Mena, a permanent resident of the U.S., that police had violated the Fourth Amendment while conducting a lawful search of her home.

The Fourth Amendment provides protection by establishing that persons be shielded against unreasonable search and seizure. Mena argued that by questioning her, and the illegal alien detainees about their immigration status during a lawful search, officers violated her Fourth Amendment rights. Mena further claimed that questions asked about her citizenship required officers to have had independent reasonable suspicion regarding the unlawfulness of her immigration status.

Calling a decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals “faulty,” the Supreme Court held that “mere police questioning [regarding one’s immigration status] does not constitute a seizure.” The Court continued its landmark ruling on this issue by stating that “the officers did not need reasonable suspicion to ask Mena for her name, date of birth, or immigration status.”

“Whatever legal fig leaf many police departments have been using to justify policies of non-cooperation with federal immigration authorities, has been stripped away by this landmark Supreme Court decision,”

“If local police are barred from cooperating with federal authorities in the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws it is purely a political decision on the part of local politicians and police chiefs. There is no legal barrier to local police inquiring about a person’s immigration status and then acting upon the information they gather.”

It all boils down to the simple fact that the immigration problem will not be solved until the federal government acts. Which reminds me of a quote that I reflect back on frequently by President Ronald Reagan; "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

And, Reagan't next to last presidential speech spoke of how 'THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS MUCH LONGER', referring to the back-room deals and bad behaviors of government revolting of them!
