Don't vote for ANYONE running for office who won't vote to deport illegals. Not anyone!

Legislators who bow down for extortionists are weak wussies who don't deserve to represent cockroaches. The CFR running the country and encouraging illegals to do this to Americans are fascist elites who don't worry about the well being of common serfs.

What can you expect from illegal alien barbarians? They're lawless bullies who care only for what they can steal from innocents. They come from countries where lawlessness rules and extortion is a way of life, and they want to turn the USA into the same kind of lawless cesspool because they get to do exactly as they please to anyone. We're supposed to WANT them to stay here? That notion has always been absurd. Not in a million years.

The kumbayah liberals who support the illegal alien invasion of the USA deserve everything they get for their efforts, and I pray they experience it tenfold, personally.

I feel sorry for the average American Utahn. Their once-great state has been soiled by cowardly polticians, making Utah a joke of a state. You Utahns need to stand up once and for all and try to restore your once-great status.

They need to look beyond forcing illegal aliens to drive illegally... they need to look to forcing illegal aliens to move to California!

Illegal Alien Cop Murderer Has Huge Criminal Record

In a case that resembles many others nationwide, an illegal immigrant who
recently murdered a Utah law enforcement officer has an extensive criminal
record and multiple deportation orders yet remained in the U.S. undetected.

The tragic incident accentuates the lingering weaknesses in the federal
immigration enforcement system and lack of collaboration by local
municipalities that protect illegal aliens with official sanctuary policies
and other less formal don't-ask-don't tell practices.

This time the victim was Millard County Sheriff Deputy Josie Greathouse Fox,
a 37-year-old wife and mother of two. Roberto Miramontes Roman, an illegal
immigrant from Mexico, shot the small-town law enforcement officer in west
central Utah during a traffic stop last week. Roman has an extensive
criminal record, including guilty pleas to charges ranging from third-degree
felony drug possession to receiving stolen property and various weapons

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials say Roman has been
deported three times. He was first deported in 1998 after a criminal
conviction in Utah and arrested twice when attempting to re-enter the
country illegally in Arizona and California. Roman was convicted on federal
immigration charges in Arizona and served time in a federal prison.

He made no secret about his violent tendencies and even set up a page on a
popular internet social networking site to advertise his various firearms,
including a pair of handguns and an AK-47 semiautomatic assault rifle. Roman
was pictured holding the guns and claiming that he was feeling "crazy" and
"ready for whatever is next."

The murderer's family claims he's not really an illegal immigrant, but
rather a local guy who happened to be born in Mexico. Roman's parents came
to Utah illegally with their five children about three decades ago and
sincerely consider their Mexican children Utahans because they were raised
there, albeit illegally.

The last paragraph on Cricket 23's post just says it all, doesn't it? Now I know that we have heard this before, but "we are just here to make a better life for our families." Excuse me, I feel ill. That whole group needs kicked to the border. So much for that latino pride thingy they always yapping about.

Our streets would be safer, if the illegals are not allowed to drive, and stop them from coming here in the first place.
