You keep wages low and your work is not approved by any government agency because you don't have a license.

Maybe you can keep prices low in Mexico so your countryman can afford homes?

So you are talking about "double standards" for dissimilar infractions. Hmm. Kind of negates any possibility for a double standard doesn't it.
If you go back and read the article you will see that nowhere does it say anybody is getting a pass on a civil infraction. It says that federal agents will not get involved. It says nothing about local authorities letting anybody off for whatever they did.
Do you know of any typical cases where somebody operated a business without a license, drove with an open container of alcohol or drove without insurance and the local police called in federal authorities? Doesn't happen.
Since federal agents will not get involved they will not be charged with being in the country illegally and they will not be deported so they get a pass on a civil violation. Remember that the “Justice Department” has blocked states from prosecuting illegal aliens.
Since a second violation would be a felony they get a free pass on a felony if they are arrested again since they were not charged with the first offence. As I said, Illegal aliens get a free pass and American citizens do not.
Even the illegals who get the free pass know they have gotten away with breaking the law. That is why they do not worry about breaking the law. Don't tell me that you are going to admit you are not even as smart as an illegal alien.

Again you just change the topic. I have to admit I do admire you for having the nerve to actually write that the "Justice Department has blocked states from prosecuting illegal aliens".

Even in Topix most people would be too embarrassed to utter such bullshit, but you have no problem doing it. Shameful.

How have I changed the topic? Read the headline. Read the story. The topic is that illegal aliens will no longer be prosecuted or deported even if they commit a minor crime. Since they cannot be prosecuted by state and local authorities because the Justice Department as we all know has file law suits to block states from enforcing any laws that pertain to illegal aliens, and federal authorities have been ordered to not prosecute them they get a free pass. Show me one civil violation that an American citizen can commit repeatedly in the United States with the full knowledge of authorities and not be prosecuted even when they have been cited for other crimes/violations. There is only one I know of and you have to be an illegal alien to commit that violation.

Earlier you claimed that illegal immigrants were being rewarded and citizens were being punished for the exact same offense, but you still can not provide a single example of this happening. Not even one.

I seriously doubt you would be able to find a new home built in America that didn't have part of it constructed by an undocumented worker. We must be doing something right.

As usual you have no proof of what you say. All you have to do is find the post where I said what you claim I said. So simple even you could do it if not for the fact that you are lying about what I said. As the article points out illegal aliens are getting a pass for their crimes. The government refuses to prosecute them or even deport them. That is the current policy as stated in the article. Obviously you do not understand what you read or you did not read it. Perhaps you are not able to understand or read the article how sad.

I am not going to bother with the others. One is enough to prove you are full of shit.

When you have some free time go back and read the article. Nowhere did it say illegal immigrants would not be prosecuted. God you are shameless.

I'm pretty sure you'll find an undocumented worker contributed to the building of any new house in the U. S. If not the house itself, then certainly the factories that make all the material that goes into a new home. Think about it.

That has nothing to do with my post. I guess we can put you down as another person who can not provide even a single example of an undocumented person being rewarded by authorities for doing something that an American would be punished for.
By the way, did the police accident report identify the other driver as an "illegal alien" or did they simply have brown skin and you jumped to conclusions?
My Niece, a Police officer with unified Police Dept. In Utah found out she was illegal and was by the way deported two weeks ago. But we still paid the damn illegals cost's. So yes Turner. I do know the right people, and my information is 100% not BS.I'm not a law breaking illegal alien that think's like a thief and liar.

I am kind of suspicious when it takes a week to come up with a response. Now as a local police officer your niece would have not way of knowing if this person is an illegal immigrate or not. Even ICE can not identify people that easily.

Now I guess the strangest part of your post is that the argument you have been making is that people are rewarded for being illegal immigrants, yet you claim this person was deported. That is really not much of a reward now is it?

It does not say that at all you fraud.

You have said over and over that illegal immigrants are being rewarded for committing the exact same offense that a citizen would be punished for, but you can not provide a single example. Instead you just misrepresent the article. How silly.
