I looked at the video's. Sounds like he is stating that if we want 287(g), then we need bring the victim's forward. Once the victims come forward, and it can be shown that the illegal alien was in and out of jail, its painfully obvious that we need 287(g). I seem to remember the case in Nashville where they were reluctant to have the 287(g) program until it was shown they could have saved a life. Also, I have asked a spanish language speaker to translate La Raza and they have said it translates as the race of people.
I have been asked for my fishing license. I am not hispanic(not all hispanics are brown by the way -- those with more european ancestors are quite white. Those with african ancestors are quite black). I am a US born citizen and can prove it with authentic identification. They had no fishing license AND were not citizens of this country. Let say I went to Mexico and was caught fishing while white(I mean no fishing license and in the country illegally). I would end up in a rat hole jail while they waiting to pay a fine(bribe) and escorted out of the country. Say I was in mexico illegally and from somewhere like El Salvador -- its just as likely I could be raped, robbed and murdered. The illegal fisherman in your story got proper justice. The police were upholding US and NC laws in a proper way. Your story is obviously meant to bully them into not doing their jobs next time. Thanks officers and keep up the great work.
African American unemployment moves between 8% and 10% http://data.bls.gov/PDQ/outside.jsp?survey=ln. In Durham it moves in that range. Corporate employers should promote training and employment of African American citizens before exploiting cheap illegal aliens from other countries. John, I stand by my other statements regardless of your opinions.
Why do these articles all follow the same pattern? People against illegal immigration are 1) racist, 2) in sympathy with the Klan, 3) against immigrants.
I get so tired of hearing it. Provide some arguements for why its good to allow 12 million people into our country ahead of those all around the world trying to do it the right way. How do we justify the jobs they take from the most vulnerable in our society?
There is not justice in allowing them to be puppets of the corporations who just want to drive down wages? And how do we justify the crowded emergency rooms? The teachers who are weighed down by non-english speaking children. The families who are torn apart by an illegal immigrant who drinks, drives, and kills? Or the child who is raped by an illegal immigrant.
I was heartened to see you are not against implementing the 287(g) program. At least you support removing the worst illegal immigrant criminals from our society.
And yes, while they are here and contributing so much to our society, they should learn and speak english.
It has nothing to do with race or ethnicity and everything to do with assimilation to the american culture -- and yes we do have a culture. If americans were to cross our southern border illegally, the cultures south of the border would expect nothing less themselves.
Its time for progressives to stop romanticizing about the issue and address the reality.
