What you need to realize is that they ALL hate Conservative Americans, especially Anglo, heterosexual Christians.
They are the enemy, dumba$$ run-of-the-mill citizens are clueless to the people that want them DEAD.
Two words: Political Correctness and Teachers Unions.
“Ex-high school principal gets 8 years for molesting four girls.”
And then does he get deported?
When is the last time California deported an undocumented pedophile ?
