Posted on 05/26/2014 7:21:24 PM PDT by moonshinner_09
More than 60 people gathered in front of the Roanoke Sheriff's Office holding up signs that said 'Pray for the Release of Enrique.'
Most of the members say they are a part of St. Joseph's Church in Martinsville. They say one of their church members, Enrique Manriquez, was arrested while watering plants at the church. The Pastor says he was an arrested for being an illegal immigrant after living in the U.S. for 20 years.
A statement released by the church said, "But the officers were simply enforcing the laws. The problem is that the laws have grow obsolete. They do not reflect the reality of the situation in our American communities."
"We need new laws. And they need to release Enrique. His family needs him. His church family need him. The business he works for needs him. His American community needs him."
A call to the Sheriff's Office wasn't immediately answered.

Not one drop of sympathy. That he’s been here for 2 decades unmolested is nothing short of appalling and demonstration of a complete breakdown in the rule of law and the security of our borders.
Ship him ‘home’. He has no right to be here
They are lawless and need to seek the creator of the universe.
An illegal alien is an illegal alien regardless of how long he’s been an illegal alien.
If they care so much they need to hire him a lawyer and pay his bail.
My guess is that there will be more to this story than a poor gardener getting swept up by the eeeevvviiilll police. Guessing there is a standing deportation order on him and maybe some other issues.
And if they want to play in the political arena, they need to start paying taxes. All taxes.
I wonder how many of the 60 are illegal?
What make Enrique better than my son-in-law? Just because he is from a favored ethnic group likely to be reliable Democrat voters?
Release the Marine in Mexico first!
Idiots think we should support the whole world or something
..... “The problem is that the laws have grow obsolete. They do not reflect the reality of the situation in our American communities.” .....
What are the realities in your home country? Only America is stupid enough to have a welfare state and open borders. We are in a death spiral as a nation and culture.
Thing is... where is the sanctuary rule of these churches for Americans tracked by Obama? Oh, that is right, this is the kind of church that houses gay and islamic terrorists like in mosques only... only with selective consciousness objection.
I’m sure there is another Enrique in the wings! Send him packing. .
There are no doubt parish plants withering on the vine somewhere in Mexico - and lawns desperately in need of Enrico's care.
Oh, Amen to that.
<><> is he getting in-state college tuition?
<><> is he using stolen SS nos and multiple id's?
<><> are he and his family getting multiple EITC refunds?
<><> did he ever engage in voter fraud using fake ids?
Illegals are notorious for using stolen SS nos and fake ID's as a means for:
<><> pocketing welfare, food stamps, EITC refunds, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp,
<><> to get hefty SS checks by claiming "asylum"
<><> falsifying apps to get fraudulent sub-prime mortgages,
<><> making false claims on IRS forms in order to get multiple EITC refunds?
<><> using illegal driver's licenses,
<><> wire-transferring money back to Mexico; the Third World,
<><> opening offshore accounts under multiple identities,
<><> being paid agents of foreign governments.
Chances are he is cashing multiple govt checks under several identities in these categories:
UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,
TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),
WICS (food assistance),
subsidized Section 8 shelter,
Utility Assistance subsidies,
School breakfasts/lunches/snacks subsidies,
$5000 a year EITC checks per identity.
In a word, yes.
Democrats Privately Calling Obama 'Detached,' 'Flat Footed,' 'Incompetent'
Weekly Standard / Daniel Halpern / Posted by Sub-Driver
CNN's John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama "detached," "flat footed," and "incompetent."
"Forget for a moment that Republican outrage," said King on his CNN show, "More and more Democrats in key 2014 races are calling for the president to get a spine, they say, and fire his VA secretary.
And more and more Democrats are even more scathing in private...saying that the president (and his team) are detached, flat footed.....even incompetent.
King said "what strikes me, is what democrats are saying privately in the wake of the healthcare.gov problems: they see a president who doesn't want to take command, doesn't want to act fast. Raising the competence question, some Democrats, who believe in activist government, [are saying] this White House doesn't appear to have its hand on the lever."
Maggie Haberman of Politico agreed, cited more examples of Obama incompetence, and added: "All of this adds up to somebody who just doesn't seem at all involved."
Give BO a break. He can’t act unless Valarie Jarrett, George Soros, or one of his other handlers pull the strings.
