KEYWORDS: aliens; immigration; protest; tn
"We don't think police officers should be immigration agents," said Meghan Conley, a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Tennessee and a member of Allies of Knoxville's Immigrant Neighbors. "It's a federal matter. The vast majority of (undocumented) immigrants are not committing crimes." I would ask how do supporters define crimes by illegals ? Document fraud does not count, lying on I-9 tax forms does not count, driving without licences and insurance does not count.Being in country illegally does not count. What does count as a crime ?

It's a federal matter.

I get the feeling that, once we throw out the Obommunists and (Deo volente) start enforcing Federal immigration laws, sociologists like this woman will object that it's "a local matter."

“I would ask how do supporters define crimes by illegals? Document fraud does not count, lying on I-9 tax forms does not count, driving without licences and insurance does not count. Being in country illegally does not count. What does count as a crime ?”

There’s the problem. It simply writes itself.

Maybe we’ll get serious about illegal immigrants like when Bush II was in office. ALL RIGHT!

This is the one silver lining to the current economic crisis... jobs have pretty much dried up. And if it goes on much longer so will the taxpayer subsidized benefits.

Then, self deportation happens.

Always look on the bright side.

When plumbers make at least three times as much as sociologists, and have five times as much stature, we’ll be going in the right direction.

Do you believe this BS.......Tipton, a native of Brazil, said she previously lived in Danbury, Conn., where the city police department participates in 287(g). She said the program translated to constant harassment for her, despite working as a police and court interpreter, having a green card and later obtaining U.S. citizenship.

“I was stopped three times for driving while brown,” she said. “I had a horrible time.”

does anybody actual believe this ? Sound like a poor-me drama (”You don’t know how hard it is for me ... blah blah blah ...” and “I’m the one who was stopped 3 times ?

“Rosalina Tipton’s been a U.S. citizen for years, but she worries that might not matter.

“People don’t care,” she said. “If you look brown, you’re screwed.”

Then bleach your skin white like Micheal Jackson did...no more worries for you.

The only difference between a crowd and a demon is the plural number thereof.

I’m speaking of mobs, not peaceable and thoughtful gatherings like Tea parties.

Did the officer actually say “Excuse me ma’am but I have to stop you because you are brown.” Puhleez.
