The article says: "mmigrant rights groups in Los Angeles are reporting that LAPD officers used handheld devices to scan the fingerprints of day laborers on the street corners. The incident, they say, raises serious concerns over privacy rights.

“These day laborers are not suspected of any criminal activity that we know of,” said Jennifer Lynch, author of a new report released Wednesday by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Immigration Policy Center that describes the episode."

Sorry, Jennifer, but if they are illegal, they are engaged in criminal activity by being in our country. Not to mention that out of work illegal aliens often rob to get money, or sell illegal drugs they get from the cartels. Police have the right to investigate suspects. They're the good guys who work to keep us safe by removing criminals from the streets.

Illegal aliens aren't immigrants, anyway, and don't have any rights here. Get a clue, Mexifornia.

All part of how the media in general has been trying to "down play" illegal immigrants as not committing any crimes at all. CNN is in a tailspin with views, and if you have ever watched it recently you will know why. They had Ruben Navarrette on a few days ago to spin his point and no one else to offer counter points, his support leaned so far left i almost fell out of my chair listening to it.

If I am standing on a street corner and a officer comes and asks to scan my fingerprints....Sure,I got nothing to hide. It is just another tool to help fight a growing problem of crime. A legal immigrant has nothing to fear either,if he has broken no laws.
A illegal alien should be afraid,he is a lawbreaker and the law is looking for him.
And I hope they find them,detain and deport them!
