"We are tired of the injustice,” said Fernando Lopez, 21, who came to the United States from Mexico and now lives in Phoenix.“We are tired of the indignity.”

Gerardo Torres, 41, said he arrived in the U.S. 18 years ago and stayed to work as a handyman.

“I want people to know the real me,” said Torres, who also lives in Phoenix.“We’re living in a cage of gold. It’s gold but we’re not free.”

Torres said his grandmother died in Mexico last week but he could not attend the funeral because he feared leaving the U.S."

This really shows how stupid illegal aliens are. Fernando Lopez, you are in a country illegally!!! What part of that don't you understand?

"Torres said his grandmother died in Mexico last week but he could not attend the funeral because he feared leaving the U.S."

Living in America means more than family, more than giving your grandma a send off. You don't fear leaving America, you fear living in the country of your birth, Mexico. We don't want you here.

Now you don't fear being arrested? You think Obama will save you? Every illegal alien arrested is building up a file ad Obama won't be in office forever and when he goes so does his policy.

There is never a shortage of illegal aliens to deport.

Please tell me you're not serious with this comment. Illegal aliens are NOT US citizens therefore not entitled to any protection under the US Constitution. They are entitled to an immigration hearing prior to deportation nothing more you cluelss twit. Our Constitution does NOT afford citizens from other countries "rights". It's not their government since they are NOT legal citizens. Put down the crack pipe...geeze...

Unconstitutional for aliens to be in the country w/o a visa or permission from the government.

"* 8 U.S.C.§ 1225(a)(1) provides that “an alien present in the United States who has not been admitted ... shall be deemed for purposes of this chapter an applicant for admission.”

* This triggers 8 U.S.C.§ 1225(b)(2)(A), which mandates that if the immigration officer determines that the alien is unlawfully present, the alien must be placed in deportation proceedings:“In the case of an alien who is an applicant for admission, if the examining immigration officer determines that an alien seeking admission is not clearly and beyond a doubt entitled to be admitted, the alien shall be detained for a proceeding under section 1229a of this title.”

* The proceedings described in 8 U.S.C.§ 1229a are the deportation (or “removal”) proceedings of the US immigration courts."

Since when is it unconstitutional to arrest an illegal alien for being in the country illegally? It is also legal to arrest the bus drivers and those who hired the buses for knowingly transporting illegal aliens. The busses are also subject to confiscation and forfeiture.

Rico, you know you're on thin ice with this one.

Illegal aliens are subject to arrest and deportation wherever they go, the purpose of the trip notwithstanding.

Any they have no right to petition nor file grievance. It's not *their* Government.
