Christmas can be trying time of year for undocumented immigrants
Examiner.com ^ | December 24, 2011 | Luke Witman

This holiday season, activists in California are urging the state’s undocumented population to be particularly vigilant. That is because, at this time of year, law enforcement sets up driver’s checkpoints, attempting to ferret out intoxicated motorists. Activists warn that this can be a particularly dangerous situation for immigrants, whether or not they hold valid drivers licenses, since police officers are likely to use this opportunity to check the legal residency status of those individuals suspected of being undocumented.This holiday season, activists in California are urging the state’s undocumented population to be particularly vigilant.

A group of undocumented students are distributed a clever online petition titled, “GrinchBama, Don’t Deport my Momma,” urging the President to stop separating families through unnecessary deportations. In Georgia, two teen activists are set to occupy the Cobb County sheriff’s office on Christmas day, protesting the imminent deportation of two Dream Act-eligible immigrant youths. And on the Huffington Post, queer Filipino immigrant Erwin de Leon penned an insightful op/ed urging readers to reflect this Christmas on the particular plight of this country’s undocumented LGBT population. The illegals do not stop even at Christmas, it's always, me,me,me,me,me,me and my kids,document fraud,lying, cheating, stealing, they should reflect about their own set of morals before asking for change.

“separating families through unnecessary deportations”
The easy way to avoid this is simple. Obey immigration laws.

Oh, they have all gone back the Mexico to be with their families and will return some time after Jan. 1.

This time of year would be a great time to actually close the southern border for good!

Road blocks are unconstitutional. They flat-out are. I don’t care who you are, road blocks are unconstitutional. You can not do it under our constitution. Sorry, states rights lose to federal on this one. We are losing those cherised rights and freepers are accepting the road block IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! IT IS NOT LEGAL!! Under the Commerce clause? Bullshat. I am tired of telling people to read the constitution and ask mark levin. The state you live in does not have the right to stop you in a roadbloack. The federal gov does not have the right to stop you in a roadblock, ezcept in an emergency. They DO NOT HAVE THIS RIGHT. YOU ARE GIVING IT TO THEM!

Christmas can be trying time of year for undocumented ILLEGAL immigrants

This holiday season, activists in California are urging the state’s undocumented population ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS to be particularly vigilant. That is because, at this time of year, law enforcement sets up driver’s checkpoints, attempting to ferret out intoxicated motorists. Activists warn that this can be a particularly dangerous situation for ILLEGAL immigrants, whether or not they hold valid FAKE drivers licenses, since police officers are likely to use this opportunity to check the legal residency status of those individuals suspected of being undocumented ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

The dangers posed to undocumented ILLEGAL immigrants by these police checkpoints is one example in a long line of additional stresses placed on this part of our country’s population THESE CRIMINALS during the Christmas season. For many, the holidays are a time for public revelry, trips to shops and restaurants and visits to the homes of relatives too far away to travel to regularly. However, for those without the proper authorization to be in this country ILLEGALLY, long car trips and public celebrations can ultimately lead them into police custody--WHICH IS EXACTLY WHERE CRIMINALS SHOULD BE--TOGETHER WITH THE "ACTIVISTS" WHO AID AND ABET THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.

I see they readily misused “your” vs. “you’re” in 1953, too. It’s a tradition!

I am more concerned with the 50,000 Americans who have lost their lives due to being killed by illegal immigrants in one way or another in the last decade.

“Checkpoints are unconstitutional’’< Ah, no they’re not. Driving is a privilege granted by the state, not the federal government. Whereas a right cannot be revoked, a privilege can. And 4th. Amendment protections don’t apply to your car. Trust me, long ago I found this out the hard way. But in any case, tough sh!t for Mexican illegals. Christmas or not, I hate Mexico and I hate Mexicans because they’re thieves and law-breaking parasites destroying our country.

I think they are lucky most Americans simply don’t care about them.

I believe the day is coming soon when people really DO care about them, and the manifestation of that caring will not be pretty or Christmas-like.

Has anyone ever considered the plight of the poor “Undocumented Adoptees?”

Just try to hop the fence of the Kennedy or Kerry compounds.

Nobody cares that you’re just trying to improve your situation. I tried to tell them “there are no illegal people!” They just keep going on about trespassing and stuff!

You are exactly right. Through an organization that we belong which will go unnamed we were requested to adopt a family or two. We passed. Last year they sent to the troops. Wish they had kept it the same this year.
