Here UR, this is the new reality. They figure because of tough economic times that by suing and costing the cities and others hard earned money, that they will prevail. I can tell you that most of us have the same reaction that you have. WE are all sick and tired of these damn 3rd world parasites. The sooner the hammer comes down hard on them the better for the U.S. and the American People! Please keep in mind whose backing and supporting these parasites, 2012 is right around the corner. Make them pay!!

This law prohibits soliciting employment in public areas regardless of race, age, or religious beliefs. Illegals apparently were given a pass when they could solicit employment on the police parking lot but what did the illegals do, started to harass female police officers. This is why Americans are sick of them. They want laws that have been on the books for years to be changed just for them. Their lawyer says they need to work. Well, so do Americans. Why don't these illegals go to the Texas Workforce Commission Office and apply for work like other Americans? Oops, I forgot they don't have legal authority to work in the US. Sounds like a catch 22 for them. I believe the solution would be to self deport. But there's no chance of that. Why leave when their wives and American born children are receiving so many benefits. Am I getting stupid for not grasping the fact that illegals have the same benefits as a US citizen? HUH?

Libby and Ima, I've read your post and you make a lots of sense. the stuff that we see going on here is la raza's way of trying to counter our push back against them by trying to drain money from communities that can't afford long drawn out law suites. WE must support them and keep the pressure on la raza and maldef until they break!

You need to lighten up. Obviously the poster was being sarcastic. And, btw, bible thumping turns people off. You might want to turn that down a couple of notches.

Fifth Circuit Suggests Undocumented Immigrants Have No Fourth Amendment Rights

15 June 2011

"Several constitutional amendments refer to rights that belong to “the people.” The Second Amendment refers to “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms.” The Fourth Amendment provides that “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.” According to a sharply divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, this choice of words means that undocumented immigrants have no Second Amendment rights and may also not be able to invoke the Fourth Amendment’s shield against illegal searches and arrests."

I've never liked HD, but when I started seeing "Coke de Mejico" in coolers next to the register, I surmised that they no longer want my money.
