This story brought joy to my heart. Live in fear, you roaches. You have no rights, you are scum. There should be raids like this EVERY DAY until we have rid the country of this human garbage.

Swift should have had to pay for all the deportations including the anchor's. As usual the Employer doesn't get it. The bottom line is always first... Disgusting. I remember when ICE raided swift in Logan Utah. Same thing. The lawbreakers were treated with kid gloves. The illegals were given sanctuary in the Catholic and Mormon Faith's. But no one talked about the innocent people who lost their SS# to illegals or the anchor welfare the State has been forced to pay out and the free housing the State Taxpayers got stuck with. This problem has played out time and time again. Nobody feels as sorry for these lawbreakers as they once did. US citizens are just sick and tired of this. They need to go back to Mexico they shouldn't be working here with fake ID period.

More proof that enforcement works! Citizen are safer and criminals are living in fear. This is how it should be. Not the other way around.

Huh. 5 kids, 4 of whom were conceived and born AFTER he was arrested. And who paid for that?? Sure as hell wasn't them. I am sure the anchors will be used for his "hardship waiver". The 12 year old is obviously a furure DACA applicant. The raid was a perfect example of immigration enforcement working.

I agree, no one seems concerned about the victims suffering identity theft! these illegal families are even backed by churches!!! I don't get it, they stand with them even though church leaders know some of them have stolen ss#'s of legal residents or citizens! how can this be right? I think the churches should be held accountable for aiding all these illegals especially if they're using fake ID'S!

It's not a crime for an illegal alien to use another persons identity. Read it and weep!

Colorado Supreme Court Rules Use of Stolen Social Security Number by Illegal Aliens Not Illegal

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled today that no crime was committed by Felix Montes-Rodriguez when he used a stolen social security number to apply for an auto loan. Court records also reveal that Montes-Rodriguez admitted to using the stolen social in order to obtain employment in the U.S.

“We cannot conclude that Montes-Rodriguez pretended to be another person in his loan application simply because he supplied a false Social Security number,” Justice Michael Bender wrote in his majority opinion.

All the article is referring to the legal residents who have to live in fear over this over reaching witch hunt of immigrants. After all, the only people left in that area are LAWFUL RESIDENTS!

Apparently you find that pleasing!

Pretty un-American of you.

You should not wish harm on other people.

My identity was already stolen by a white American couple in Texas. They stole my info from an bank in Texas that had acquired my info as a result of an auto loan.

The couple were caught, arrested and found guilty of identity theft as they were using my info to get credit cards and ruining my credit.

I go into a store or a restaurant and see a wetbk, I leave. I make sure the manager knows why too. And I am not afraid to say is because they have wetbk(s) working there. I never say illegal alien or undocumented worker, I use wetbax. Stop the spicification of America!!!

I'm sure the restaurant will survive without the $3 you would have spent on a Happy Meal and a free cup of water.

Feel free to eat my Happy Meal 12 hours after I've finished it. You can drink the free water, too. Likely wouldn't be the first time.

You aren't even bright and well educated enough to make a proper joke about feces.

A meal takes approximately 2 days to go from consumption to elimination, not 12 hours.

You don't have to thank me for furthering your obviously limited education.

I do it because I feel sorry for people like you who had to take the short bus.

oh happy day! I'm glad you know what it's like to have your ID stolen.....and while at it they ruined your credit! BUT THE HUMUNGOUS NUMBERS OF ILLEGALS IN SWARMS makes it more likely that it'd be an illegal if ANYONE IS VICTIMIZED! AFTER ALL YOU HEAR ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME.....however you were lucky, it was a white couple? you really lucked out since these cases are extremely rare!
