ICE Took Action Against Illegal Immigrants After Traffic Violations, Loitering

There are 20 comments on the tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com story from Aug 19, 2011, titled ICE Took Action Against Illegal Immigrants After Traffic Violations, Loitering. In it, tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com reports that:

In the new report, called "Immigration Enforcement Off Target: Minor Offenses With Major Consequences," the AILA describes anecdotal cases, provided by its members who represent the illegal immigrants in question. In these cases, agents for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were called by local police to pick up suspected illegal immigrants after they had committed minor infractions -- even though they had no criminal records.

Anecdotal evidence is unreliable because bias often affects the collection or presentation of evidence.

It violating another country's laws an "infraction", come on people, get with it. They are here illegally, personally don't give a rats ass what you illegal lovers say, these people need to get out of our country. If they want to come back, to it the legal way.

Not my house, in fact I work in the construction field and we will only hire LEGAL AMERICAN CONTRACTORS WHO EMPLOY ONLY AMERICAN CITIZENS...why? Because they will guarantee their work and they get the job done right the 1st time, unlike the "ones" who deliberately mess up the job so they can screw the homeowner out of more money....gee juanita, sound familiar?

Illegal aliens arrested at another construction site in Pennsylvania.

"On Thursday morning, several illegal aliens were taken into custody at the Wegman’s construction site in Highridge Business Park.

Schuylkill County Sheriff Joseph G. Groody told reporters that those arrested would be processed and turned over to federal immigration authorities.

Only a day earlier, Wegmans announced that they will be adding 500,000 square feet of space to its existing 415,000-square-foot distribution center in Cass Township, which will reportedly create 217 new jobs."

It's only a matter of time.

I think it's pretty safe to say the next step for us is amnesty.

That's my prediction.

True. We are doing the same thing here. Illegals are thinning from the construction sites.

At least 99% of the housing construction workers in the Houston area are undocumented workers. Most of the superintendents are citizens who have been in the business a long time.

Americans have to get it in their thick heads, that illegal labor in no way benefits the consumer, only the ceo's and business owners are the only ones who benefit from cheap labor. Cheap labor only means a crappy job, that will not stand up to the test of time. It will cost the consumer in the end, because he/she will have to hire somebody to undo the schlocky job the illegals did.

Our crew consists of 12 workers, we do very very good work. It's easy to say otherwise when you haven't owned one of our homes.

No home of mine would be built by illegals...not now, not ever. The brickwork on my home is excellent as is the wiring & plumbing, because Americans did that work.

Teddy......I would be pretty sure some undocumented workers were involved in building your home if it's not a shelter under an overpass. Matter of fact you can count on it.

Wrong, I know exactly who the contractor and sub-contractors were, and no illegals took any part in building it. Good old boys built it to last.

I lose jobs because I dont use Chinese crap and I dont use illegals. I spent 4 hours on Julio, my tractor, today......Blacks pour my slabs and do alot of my painting. American Hispanics, who know how I feel, do quite a few trades, and the rest are whites. Alot of the different crews are mixed, racially, I dont care, just nobody that doesn't speak English. That's a sure sign that they are illegal.

You can't build a house without using something made in China.

As for the workers you use, I hope your houses don't fall down.

You know I live in Vegas /Henderson and illegal workers are everywhere !!! When I would check on my house being built their were a lot of Hispanic workers working on the houses. I didnt think anything of it... Until I finally moved in and a lot of problems developed... Washer room flooded due to a loose pipe. My tile grout was cracking within a few months. Etc cheap pay does mean crappy work

OVER 205,000 people have signed it!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST AN AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS!

WHY SIGNING THIS PETITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS!

While every petition, fax, email and phone call against the amnesty is important, signing this petition is by far the most important single thing one of your friends or relatives can do.

The reason is that signing this petition puts a person into an email system at NumbersUSA that will alert them every time one of their elected officials needs to hear something specific about immigration. Nobody else but NumbersUSA runs a customized grassroots mobilization system like this that constantly gathers information on Capitol Hill about your Members of Congress and then lets you know what they are doing, saying and thinking about immigration policy.

The New York Times and other mass media have repeatedly stated that NumbersUSA's mobilization network led the efforts that defeated the close-call amnesty efforts of 2007 and 2010. But the forces for open borders are far more powerful today. Please help by passing along this Petition to everybody you know.
