That illegal immigrant race card is worn out and old.

Illegal immigrants are not a race, it is a legal term.

They need to give it up.

You would think all the money LaRaza gets from our tax dollars they could print more pamphlets with some new excuses.

Truly pathetic.

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.”

"The never ending racial profiling stories. You're right it's racial
profiling! If you have a large community of illegal immigrants in China that
are white 6' tall and speak English being questioned while those of Asian
decent are not questioned, wouldn't that be racial profiling? Get over
yourselves people, if the legal Hispanic community along with all other
races are tired of this racial profiling then maybe they should do something
about the illegal situation, like reporting them! Since when do we as
Americans have to submit to having our rights usurped to protect people that
have not earned the right to be called Americans? If I go to Mexico, Canada or England, I am a guest in their country
and they will for sure know I'm there and have every right to single me out
to ask questions of me. Get over it, especially the news media and this
paper, you perpetrate the hate stories and the "human suffering" stories as
if you own them and want to do something about them. Admit it, without the
illegals you would shrivel up and die without a cause. I have a cause for
you, why don't you write about whats happening to good people that live here
legally, go to work everyday and pay our taxes but we still get accused of
being inhumane, racist and greedy just because we don't get behind saving
the illegal aliens. And the people that want to shout racial profiling keep
shouting. "

It's not racism...it's realism.
The illegal aliens who invade our country, by their own illegal act, attack our fundamental ideals and principles and endanger the future of America.
They don't hesitate to play the "race card" to validate their own illegal actions.
They attack the very principal that has made America great...they attack the rule of law!
Again, the issue is not about race; it's about the rule of law and whether we are going to continue as a nation of laws.

Poor, poor babies. Afraid of being caught for breaking the law. What a cryin' shame. LOLOLOL! Bout time some state grows a pair and stops the rape of their treasury by lawbreakers.

Typical of others like them to scream racism and racial profiling. But if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.......

Bingo. And the duck complains that he's found out to be a duck? Ludicrous. You reap what you sow, illegals. Suck it up and go back where you are legal and belong.

You rule, Utah!

This should be the policy for the whole country. And then they can all cry "racism". It really doesn't matter because the word has been so overused it has lost its credibility.
