Robbery, rape...and murder:
It is hard to fathom how anyone could bury an axe in the head of an innocent nine-year-old boy, but that was the unimaginable fate of Jordin Paulder of Fulton County, Georgia, on June 5. The killer was "Honduran native" Santos Benigno Cabrera Borjas.
“Trabajo” ? This seems to me to be a reference to anarchism. Perhaps a rallying cry? They are not trying to disguise their agenda at all, they want this part of the continent back.
The Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (”National Confederation of Labour” or “CNT”), founded in Barcelona, Spain, in 1910, was at one time that country’s largest labour union.
It is the main Anarchist organization in Spain, and prominent in combating the coup d’état by General Francisco Franco that led to the Spanish Civil War in 1936. It is also the name of an Anarchist labour confederation in France (Confédération nationale du travail).
If we build it they won’t come

What Barbara Ehrenreich fails to acknowledge is that an illegal alien, who is breaking the law every single day, has very little reason to abide by the other laws of our nation.
For instance, if I decide to tie one on and go for a drive, I am putting my reputation, my job, my house, and all my assets at risk. If I were to get busted, or worse yet, get into an accident, I could lose all those things. Having so much to lose serves as a powerful deterrent to drunk driving. In addition to the fact that it is stupid, of couse.
But for the illegal alien, these problems do not exist, or are greatly minimized. He is not risking his good name when he slides in behind the wheel drunk, because he is using a fake name, anyway. He does not risk his job because his employer does not even know who he is, and does not care. He does not risk his home, because his home is in another country. He does not risk his assets because he has no assets in this country to speak of. Since he has so little to lose, he does not have the same deterrents acting upon him. So all he has to be is stupid, and all too many illegal immigrants seem to fit the bill.
It is not just the law that makes people law abiding. It is the fabric of society that binds people together that makes them behave. It is learning, from a very young age, that the laws of the country are to be respected and followed. It is a feeling of shared responsibility with ones fellow citizens, which is the norm in a country of equals.
But the illegal alien is not woven into the fabric of our society. Due to his choices, he puts himself outside our society and is overtly disobedient at a very basic level. He learns, from a very young age, that the laws of the US are to be ignored and broken with impunity. He has no feeling of shared responsibilities with the rest of us, because he is not one of us.
Such a person has no reason to comply with our laws.
