I didn't see your outrage when the 69 year old man was arrested for child molesting.

Were your parents didlers?

Why do we need to write a book for every 10, or 11 to be deported?
This is just stubborn mule tactics, designed to cost a lot of tax payer money, and attempt to frustrate future actions.

yeah, why can't we just follow the law? Unless we're talking about laws that also protect the accused...in that case, f***'em!

WHO IS JOHN McCAIN? Read below.

I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but let face it: there were signs. There was John McCain’s long opposition to a national holiday for Martin Luther King, Jr., his use of racial epithets, his love of racist jokes, and the increasingly racist tone of his campaign.

It seems that John McCain was a member and sat on the board of the US Council for World Freedom (”USCWF”), an organization noted for its extreme ideology, racism, and anti-semitism. This organization has been described as “largely a collection of Nazis, fascists, anti-Semites, sellers of forgeries, vicious racialists, and corrupt self seekers.” Why on earth would John McCain associate himself with such a group? Why would he take a leadership position with it?

You better hope there's not another amnesty. You're scared of brown people so much you'd have a heart attack. You better check yourself into the hospital for precautionary reasons before they announce the final poll results.

I know the hate mongers see absolutely nothing wrong with police stopping and picking up people because they look different, but what if it were you who looked different. Its racial profiling. It’s illegal no matter what the "honorable" Mr. Boughton wants to say. "I think we will prevail" Please. We have this little thing called the constitution Markie mark. And even though you feel free to violate our city charter with your rhetoric. The constitution is still above you. It really is. Believe me. You broke the law Markie Mark and "illegal is illegal' your words not mine.
Get him and his racists out of here NOW!
Racial Profiling is an essential tool in all law enforcement. It is NOT about hate, regardless of what you liberal ninnies think!
ICE releases thousands

HOUSTON — Federal immigration officials let thousands of inmates in the nation's third-largest county walk out of jail despite the suspects admitting they were in the U.S. illegally, a newspaper investigation found.

More than 3,500 inmates told Harris County jailers they were in the country illegally over an eight-month period starting in June 2007, but records show Immigration and Customs Enforcement only filed paperwork to detain about one-fourth of those suspects.

The Houston Chronicle, in a story published Sunday, found that most suspects released were accused of minor crimes. But others included convicted child molesters, rapists and some ordered deported decades ago.

ICE officials said they are doing the best they can with their resources, and that the agency prioritizes cases.

"No agency has enough law enforcement officers to do the job the way they'd like," said Kenneth Landgrebe, ICE's field office director for detention and removal in Houston.

This spring, ICE officials announced a plan to identify and **** the most serious offenders in the nation's prisons and jails, estimating it would cost between $930 million and $1 billion and take about 3? years, the Chronicle reported. Congress is pressuring ICE to move faster.

"The highest priority for ICE should be deporting people who have proven their ability and their willingness to do us harm. Immigration is a very, very contentious issue, but this seems to be one thing almost everyone agrees is a priority," U.S. Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee, told the Chronicle.

Among the newspaper's findings in its review of cases involving inmates in the country illegally:

• 43 percent were charged with misdemeanors and had no prior criminal record in Harris County.

• 177 released were later charged with additional crimes, and more than half of those were felonies, including aggravated sexual assault of a child and capital murder.

• About 11 percent had three or more prior convictions in Harris County.

Among those previously released were Miguel Mejia Rodriguez, 36, who is currently jailed on charges of raping and sodomizing a second-grader. In 2006 he was arrested for touching himself in an apartment parking lot and told jailers he was in the country illegally, but ICE did not file paperwork to detain him.

Rodriguez served a 25-day sentence and was released.

"I never lied about who I am or where I'm from. I'm 100 percent Mexican," Rodriguez told the newspaper in a jail interview.

Matthew Baker, an assistant field office director for ICE in Houston, said agents try to screen out violent criminals to avoid preventable crimes.

"No one can measure the cases where we picked up and removed someone and prevented that carjacking or that drunk driving accident that kills a family," Baker said. "There are hundreds of thousands of incidents that we prevent every year; those are not measured because they don't happen."

The Houston ICE office set a record by removing 8,226 illegal immigrants with criminal records from Southeast Texas last year, an increase of about 7.5 percent from fiscal 2007.

The Chronicle obtained its figures based, in part, on a database of inmates who tell jailers they are in the U.S. illegally. During the review period, ICE also filed paperwork to detain 2,500 suspects not included in the database, indicating that many immigrants who are eligible for deportation do not disclose that they are here illegally.

In Texas, foreign nationals made up approximately 15 percent of the state's population in 2005 and about 7 percent of state prison offenders

In the latest dust up surrounding PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHT TO BE HERE (sorry that felt pretty good). A fight breaks out at a local eatery regarding who is going to use the Karioke (or however the hell you spell it) machine first, a couple of deportees cannot contain there anger at each other and at the possibility that the city may not hear their talented rendition of some obscure Brazilian tune and presto! A fisticuffs breaks out and our local P.D. is disturbed while eating at the numerous Dunkin Donuts located around the city and have to be dislodged from their vehicles to make several arrests (good job D.P.D.- seriously). Of course several of the participants have already been deported....oh boy....ya just can't make it up.
