Skip to comments.Swift Raids Unacceptable [Iowa upset that illegal aliens were arrested]
Posted on 12/21/2006 6:30:27 AM PST by doc30
According to a Des Moines Register news story, "In a blunt and stinging letter, the governor and the top officer of the Iowa National Guard on Tuesday called federal immigration officials' actions in the Swift raids "completely unacceptable," saying agents undermined the public's trust in government, potentially jeopardized the safety of law enforcement personnel in Iowa and could have compromised undercover operations." For the full story, see here.
--Gov. Fullsack is counting on the illegal vote in his presidential bid---
More like "agents undermined the illegal aliens trust in the government doing nothing about their presence in the US".
When the government ignores laws and law breakers (criminals) - just how does that build the public's trust in government...?
He didn't mean 'our' trust. He ment mexico's.
Yes, the business/money lobby is calling in it's markers with the politicians. What does the National Guard have to do with a Federal Immigration investigation?
Both the Governor and the National Guard Clown should not call themselves Americans.
It makes my Day when these raids and more of them arrest thousands of Illegal Aliens.
Read "America Alone", By Mark Steyn and read what Unchecked immigration can do to a country !!!!
Cut out all Federal Funds to this State and any other that supports Illegal Aliens.
If they detained 1300 and 5% were being held on felony charges, that would be 65.
Since those 65 felonies included illegal re-entry, we don't know how many are being held for id theft.
Lots of smoke, but not much fire.
I think it's time to get a new Top Officer of the Iowa National Guard.
I bet the legal Iowans lining up to get those jobs don't find the raids unacceptable.
This brings pork barrel to a new low!
Yep, me too. I read an article linked off of Boortz's page this morning that said new applicants, legal, American applicants, lined up out the door of the Swift plant in hopes of being hired into the newly vacated positions. Doing jobs Americans won't do and all that hooey.....
Gov. Ballsack is going to do well with the KosNazis with anti-American positions like this.
The detainees were transported to Camp Dodge (IA Nat'l Guard Headquarters) for holding until they were processed.
The latest this morning is state law enforcement is whining that their own undercover investigation was impaired by the Feds. I strongly suspect this is more of Viltax's efforts to focus the attention to something other than his own miserable governoring.
if we were actually RUNNING any of those, which of course we weren't......
This is validation for my comments that the rich and powerful want illegal aliens here to make millions off of them via cheap labor and sales of housing/goods to them. They simply do not care about those of us who were born here and have been living here for years paying taxes.
I think this presidential run is about him making some money in his last few years on speaking engagements, book deals, and campaign money. He has no chance and everyone knows it.
