Why don’t they simplify things and declare their city part of Mexico. All doubt would then be removed.

This is sad. Sad for America. Just making the problem worse. And who will these “employees” be loyal to? Other non-citizen Mexicans? Another Pandora’s box thanks to the pro-illegal immigration mob that is ruining this country, its system of laws, its borders, its soverignty, its citizenship, and its national security -—

WHEN DOES THE INSANITY STOP ??

I know. With every passing day, it seems there is something that drives a stake in the heart of those who love Liberty and wish our Republic saved. When these traitors in Congress(both parties) ram this bill through, they will be all smiles on TV, telling us how "great this bill will be for America." At that point, I will through a brick through the screen! We are witnessing the death knell for America if this passes.

OK, I get that Santa Fe is looking to add hispanic officers to its police roster. But do they expect anyone to believe that in Santa Fe, in New Mexico, there are no hispanic americans at all, who might be interested in the job?

Really?

I never thought that I would see a government that would operate totally to ITS OWN SATISFACTION with total disregard for the American citizen and the overall integrity of our country. The government is OUT OF CONTROL like a runaway train. The government can no longer be trusted -— and that is a serious condemnation.

I wouldn’t doubt that ranks of the organized crime syndicates (gangs) apply. They are sent to colleges and run legitimate business and run for political office, I don’t see why not join the cops. They wouldn’t have to buy off, they’d have a made man on the inside.

Sgts. Gillian Alessio and Marvin Paulk told the city's Public Safety Committee on Tuesday that they are trying to think outside the box to fill 20 vacancies on the 155-person force.

These aren't "jobs Americans won't do," they're jobs THEY DON'T WANT Americans to do! It's hard to be outraged more than I am already without being just plain tuckered out!

This really caps the immigration argument. Now, I suppose the move will be to use alien cops to enforce foreign laws against American citizens. Grrrrr.

They're NOT going to be satisfied with just the city. They want the whole state, country, continent! There now, I got it right. ;o)

No it hasn’t. America is great and prospering. Why are you a half glass empty type of person. The only question I have is what is wrong with people in Santa Fe who don’t want a job on the police force? There must be something wrong with the way they are treated or something because most cities have no trouble filling jobs.

They do this and Los Zetas will have legitimate presence on an American police force on this side of the border.

The hideous violence of the Mexican border town's narcotrafficates will be right in Santa Fe NM inside of a decade.

People will wonder 'How did this happen?!' when they finally read about it on the cover of Newsweek in 2011.

That is why they can’t get people to work there. The highest person makes 42,000 dollars a year before taxes. You may have just answered everyone’s questions. I know that there are a few bennies, but 100 dollars for language. You can never really make over average American Wage.

Thats what happens with a lot of smaller cities. Guys start there to get a foot in the door, and then transfer to a larger city for better pay.

They need to bump the salaries at least 50% if they want to get and keep good people. Hiring foreigners when you aren't willing to pay a decent salary isn't an answer.

In the article they mention that they are recruiting from San Diego. But San Diego cops make probably double what Santa Fe is offering, and Oregon cops probably make at least 50% more. So if they think they can seriously recruit people without raising their salaries they are dreaming.

I don't think they have to look that far to fill those positions; they should send a notice over to the National Guard armory in town, and recruit the guys coming home from overseas. Pay a decent wage, and they should have no problem hiring as many as they want.

Remember the Alamo.....there are going to be MANY p@ssed off Mexican-Americans (REAL ONES) who did it legally, and have no love for these criminals who are gonna get a pass from the reprobate Congress who want to let them in as a REWARD FOR BREAKING THE LAW, and not following procedure.

The Washington government has made ALOT of mistakes in my days -— but this takes the cake. They just do not give a damn about America, the will of its REAL people — they are just pandering to their elitist agendas and destroying America in the process.

who are in the country legally but are not naturalized. There is a huge pool of people who are dedicated, hard-working and trying to become citizens of this country

Do you have a problem with legal immigrants who want to become American citizens ?

You might want to consider how your forefathers arrived here ...
