Dozens arrested in raids at courthouses (Rhode Island. ILLEGALS)
Providence Journal ^ | 7-16-08 | KAREN LEE ZINER and FELICE J. FREYER

PROVIDENCE — Federal immigration agents and state police raided six Rhode Island courthouses yesterday, arresting dozens of people employed by two contractors hired by the state. The detainees are all believed to be maintenance workers.

The raid led to a noisy demonstration by at least 100 people outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office at 200 Dyer St. last night. Police officers arrived as the crowd grew; at one point the police pushed a line of demonstrators across the parking lot.

Some in the crowd were relatives of the arrestees. Others included clergy and at least one state representative, Grace Diaz, and members of immigrant advocacy groups.

Leonardo Tornes said his sister, Francesca Tornes, an undocumented worker from Mexico, was arrested at the Kent County Courthouse

200 people protested. How many didn’t protest the arrest of criminals who had been hired to work in a government office?

So here are a bunch of illegals that has free run of the court house at night. Just think of all the confidential information lying around(bureaucrats are slobs).
It is RI..run by the mob, so it is surprising that the raids took place.

Some of the women who were arrested “have little kids, bigger kids,” he said.

Oh the horror. They come here illegal and bring their kids or have them here. Just who is to blame? The governor? The courts? The boss? No the blame belongs to the women here illegally.

Where am I wrong in this thinking?Z

I really hope the ICE workers know how much those of us out in America appreciate it when they arrest illegals. All they read in these liberal rags is the boo-hooing of relatives and bleeding hearts who just can’t get over the fact that people get arrested for committing crimes. Well, my non-bleeding heart does a little cheer every time I read one of these stories...a spark of hope in an election year that is very depressing with regard to this particular topic.

Yes, amigo, as long as you push out a baby on the US side of the Rio Grande you qualify, via the anchor baby:

WIC coupons (food stamps)
SSI (welfare)
Section 8 housing
Medicaid
Public schooling

If you pop out a baby here, the US taxpayer gives your child, a newly-minted US citizen per the 14th Amendment, a BETTER life than you had down south.

The logic is easy for someone in their shoes, why not, at worst, you get deported and go back home. At best, you make 50x your income here and have your basic needs paid for and with more children, the benefits increase.

Not to mention everything now is bi-lingual and even Obama thinks everyone should speak Spanish.

If I were President, it would be a deport first policy and the entire immigration system would be revised.

“¿hablan español” is what I ask every time I go into Lowe’s or Home Depot! Freaks them all out!

“Not to mention everything now is bi-lingual and even Obama thinks everyone should speak Spanish.”

I wonder what the African-Americans that support him think about having to learn Spanish?

No, that just makes you a bigot. Ask Lindsey Graham. He'll tell you.

Try the Mexican Constitution on for size.

Chapter III

Of Foreigners

Article 33 - Foreigners are those who do not possess the qualities determined in Article 30. They have the right to the guarantees of Chapter I of the first title of this Constitution, but the Executive of the Union has the exclusive right to expel from the national territory, immediately and without necessity of judicial proceedings, all foreigners whose stay it judges inconvenient. Foreigners may not, in any manner, involve themselves in the political affairs of the country.

Of course, there is also this part in Chapter II:

Article 32 - The law will regulate the exercise of rights that Mexican legislation grants to Mexicans who possess another nationality, and establish standards to avoid conflicts of double nationality.

The exercise of duties and functions for which, by disposition of the present Constitution, may be reserved to those who have the quality of Mexican nationality, and do not receive another nationality. This reservation also will be applicable to those cases which other laws of the Congress of the Union specify.

In time of peace, no foreigner may serve in the Army, or in police or public security forces. To belong actively to the Army in time of peace, or to the National Navy or the Air Force at any moment, and discharge any duty or commission in them, one is required to be Mexican by birth. The same quality is indispensable for captains, pilots, owners, machinists, mechanics, and in general for all personnel who staff any ship or aircraft that carries the Mexican flag or merchant insignia. Also, Mexican citizenship by birth is necessary to exercise the responsibilities of port captain, and all the services of director of an airport.

Mexicans will be preferred to foreigners in equality of circumstances, for all classes of concessions and all employment, duties, or commissions of government for which the quality of citizenship is not indispensable.

They come here illegal and bring their kids or have them here.

And the Mexican Constition says that those kids are Mexicans, as long as one parent is Mexican, no matter where born.

Be thankful it's 2008 here in the United States though from reading reply #21 it may still be 1915 in Mexicorruption. (From one of several Internet sources):

"President Woodrow Wilson in his State of the Union address on December 7, 1915, said in part:

"'There are citizens of the United States, I blush to admit, born under other flags, but welcomed under our generous naturalization laws to the full freedom and opportunity of America, who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt... necessary that we should promptly make use of processes of law by which we may be purged of their corrupt distempers... I am urging you to do nothing less than save the honor and self-respect of the nation... disloyalty, and anarchy must be crushed out... I need not suggest the terms in which they may be dealt with.' . . .

"California Congressman Julius Kahn went even further . . .

"'I hope that we shall have a few prompt hangings and the sooner the better. We have got to make an example of a few of these people, and we have got to do it quickly.'

"The hatred that was being garnered against these American citizens is exemplified by the New York Times headlines of April 6, 1918: 'Senators favor shooting traitors,' then six days later by the Chicago Tribune’s headlines 'Cure treason and disloyalty by firing squad.'"

[They were talking about immigrants from Germany. End of quotes from 90 years ago]

Attention mediasmatters and Bill O'Reilly folks, please note that these are QUOTES attrubted to President Wilson, et al AND DO NOT REPRESENT THE VIEWS OF ANY FREEPER. In other words READ THE WHOLE THING don't just select out a string of characters to complain. Thanks.
