It is a police officer's job to arrest law breakers. All law breakers. Entering a country illegally is breaking the law. They can hold criminals until the proper Law Enforcement Agency comes, and gets them. They just do it better under President Trump.

That's why he was elected president. The booming economy, outing media bias, exposing liberal hypocrisy, substantial progress towards world peace and the implosion of the Democratic Party etc. are just a bonus.

You're such a brain damaged, alcoholic liar that you don't know or care about the difference between "criminal" and "civil."

Cops rely heavily on citizens picking up the phone to call 911 when there's a problem of some sort. Brown skinned persons across the board - regardless of status - will be much more reluctant to do that. That will make everyone safer, no matter how gated their community is. Sooner or later even those in gated communities have to enter society.

Criminals of all races are reluctant to pick up a phone to call 911. That is not new and has nothing to do with "skin color".
As for your "gated community" comment that is best directed to your hero Obama who enjoys his gated community so much that he had a fence and gate put up at his house before he moved out of the White House. Of course it is not like he has any intention on "entering society" with all of the deplorables.

Yeah, you're sick.

"Criminal" is the wrong word for "civil" infraction, white supremacist.

I wasn't talking about criminals not calling the cops. I was not talking about persons of all races. I was saying that anyone with brown skin will be more reluctant to call the cops _regardless of immigration status_ because some racist could start demanding they prove their citizenship. Even Spanish speaking, fully legal citizens don't want to get into that sort of stuff.

It was not a difficult point, meaning you're a Blackshirt liar.

We aren't seeing Criminal infraction. We are seeing rioters destroying property, and that is against the law. I just watched the police haul off a whole big bunch of loud mouthed, deranged women from the Senate Building. Do you really think we are going to let you lead by Chaos? No, we are going to jail you until you can behave like grown ups. That might never happen.

Drug running, meth cooking, welfare mooching, hit and run driving people who cross the border. If anyone else had established a nation here before Europeans showed up they would have gotten to write the laws for themselves. Don't like it? Go back across the Bering Straight.

You are right. It is a good thing we elected Trump to clean up the mess that Obama created.

You can't expect Trump to fix over night what it took several generations of Political Establishment Administrations to wreck. Trump is making great strides though. Lend a hand or get out of the way. Go Trump! MAGA!

Actually, if you knew anything, you would realize that china is a much bigger threat, but you won't learn that from cnn or msnbc or the other fake news outlets.

Several thousand Americans are killed EACH YEAR by illegals and refugees. How many has russia killed? Which is a bigger threat?

The criminals that you racistly call "brown-skinned" people are calling about are almost always "brown-skinned" too. There is ZERO evidence or studies which show that the fake news claim that some illegal won't call cops when a home invader is killing/raping their kids because they worry about being deported, is actually true.

What is true is that several THOUSAND AMERICANS ARE KILLED EACH YEAR BY ILLEGALS/REFUGEES in the USA!! Deporting everyone that is here illegally will save us hundreds of BILLIONS each year and reduce crime.

KCSO is helping clean up knoxville and our area by deporting illegals. We are also seeing a big increase in crimes committed by rogero's refugees and illegals from other countries besides mexico and central america.

We HAVE TO STOP ELECTING LIBERALS/DEMOCRATS at all levels. Rogero is personally responsible for several deaths and many crimes in our city with her ignorant democratic policies which impede police from protecting us. She ordered her lackie rausch to NOT go after thug gang bangers/drugs, etc., and her token pick eve appears to be changing nothing. KPD officers at all levels except the top disagree with the allocation of resources and the focus on the wrong areas. These dedicated officers are tired of doing murder investigations for gang shootings when they could have easily put those thugs in prison by arresting them BEFORE they killed each other or jajuan, or other innocent people, etc. Turn them loose and let them do the job they signed up for and the job they can be good at. Or, continue to do the same and let everyone know you don't care if a couple dozen blacks are murdered each year, after all dems are racist and don't like blacks anyway it seems. Or that hundreds of people are dying from the drug epidemic when kpd could be arresting drug dealers instead of writing revenue tickets?

Why does rogero want to protect criminals instead of the citizens of our city?

The white supremacist I replied to always makes the blanket statement about "criminals." You have echoed that blanket racism.

In fact the two of you are ignorant - the vast bulk of the undocumented in the US came in with some sort of paperwork and then overstayed that paperwork.(They most often or very often came in via airports, thus exposing the "great border wall" as racist dog whistle corporate welfare.) Overstaying paperwork is not "criminal."

Also, the other ignorant white supremacist could not understand the simple point about cops getting involved in the federal matter of immigration enforcement - this will deter anyone who could be taken for an "illegal" from contacting the cops for any reason, regardless of their immigration status. That is the practical objection to this federalizing of local cops. You idiot.
