This Could Get Interesting

Policies that engender a disrespect for the law just might open up the policy makers to problems:
  • Margaret Rains and Haley Tepe were sitting down to enjoy ice cream at a Baskin-Robbins in Aurora, Colo., when a sport utility vehicle driven by an illegal immigrant sent two cars plowing into the shop, leaving three dead and the two women injured.

    Now the women are taking action against the city of Denver, arguing that its sanctuary-city policy contributed to the Sept. 4 crash. The driver, 23-year-old Francis Hernandez, had been arrested numerous times by Denver police, but was never reported to federal immigration authorities.

Since illegal immigration was and continues to be such a hot button issue, sanctuary policies ought to come under more fire in the courts and legislatures. And if lawmakers can't be held liable in civil court, they ought to beheld liable at the ballot box.

i must say... they make a very good point in the lawsuit. im not trying to have a liberal view on this or anything since i am a stauch republican but, i really do not see the mexicans as being a bad part of society. most of them are hard workers and decent citizens who obey the law...however, there are those that dont give a sh*t and do what ever they want because thats the way it was in mexico. it is a hot button topic, but im all for letting people into this country, but they should have to follow all laws and rules or they should be arrested and if it is a felony they should be immediatly deported without trial. thats just my opinion. officers, we(the public) truly do value you all and i pray for firemen and police officers everynight. please stay safe while doing the lords work.

The fucking strokes on Denver's city council actually forced a law change. Because of them and their sanctuary policy, Colo. state law now requires us to call INS (well, ICE now) for basically every arrestee now.

Which we should have been doing all along, except for the city council which thinks that they're elected by the cholos that cruise up and down Federal Blvd. and the votes of US citizens don't count.

Porsche owner from Hoffman Estates to remain in County Jail

[I just checked and he's not in CCJ. I'll bet anything their high-powered lawyers -- the family high-pressure-sells jewelry, owns racehorses, and is worth millions -- has greased him out the side door into TASC.]

He is held on probation violation while police investigate fatal Florida hit-run

Tribune staff report

February 27, 2009

The owner of a Porsche involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed two British tourists in Florida will remain in jail for at least six weeks, a Cook County judge ruled Thursday.

Ryan LeVin of Hoffman Estates is expected to be placed in a substance-abuse program at the Cook County Jail. He was taken into custody this week after the judge said he violated probation from a 2006 case.

LeVin, 34, was arrested in 2006 after running over a Chicago police officer with a different Porsche and sparking a chase on the Kennedy Expressway.

{He has something like 50 traffic violations in Cook County alone.]

Jailed Playboy Pulled From Fast Lane

NBCChicago.com
updated 10:47 a.m. CT, Fri., Feb. 27, 2009

He's 34 years old and has been living a privileged life in the lap of luxury in Southern Florida.

Can you say spoiled brat?

But the gravy train may be coming to a end for Hoffman Estates native Ryan LeVin, heir to a family fortune and dubbed a "millionaire playboy" by British tabloids.

LeVin was arrested and jailed in Cook County Tuesday on a parole violation stemming from a 2006 car chase in Chicago, not on charges related to his more recent tangle with the law.

Authorities in Florida are investigating LeVin's involvement in a double-fatal hit-and-run crash that killed two British tourists in Ft. Lauderdale on Feb. 13...

Do you actually think the City will change it's policy? One of your own officers was killed by an illegal in 2004 in the Line of Duty. The illegal had prior contact with CPD but was never turned in to ICE. I'm sure if this involved someone from the Mayor's family, things would have changed.

I think the "Sanctuary Cities" should rethink their policies. Especially with all the violence that is happening in Mexico now. That violence is spreading to this country. I heard an officer from Phoenix talk about all the kidnappings they are experiencing in that city. Do these politicians really think that only the good, hardworking Mexicans are coming across the border.

I hope the officers call ICE anonymously after an encounter with an illegal alian. What do the illegals have to do before they go to jail and are deported?

Yes, there are a lot of good, hard working Mexicans, but they have to follow the rules the same as anyone else does to come into our country.

I may be cynical but I think the politicians want to give amnesty to the illegals and then citizenship. Guess who they will be voting for then?

Keep up the good work and keep ICE phone number handy.

So because a portion of immigrants are hard workers they should all be given a free pass? The bottom line is if you come here to better yourself and follow the laws fine. If you break the law you should be deported.

Yeah, and my great grandparents did the same shitty, stupid jobs when they got here too. I'm sure yours did too, that's the way it's always been for immigrants everywhere. The difference is they had to follow the laws and rules of the US to be able to get in and even then some didn't. Deportation and sneaking back in wasn't an option when you had to cross an ocean.
Rationalizing illegal immigration like this is the reason California is collapsing. The astronomical cost of providing citizen-paid services (schools, healthcare, etc.) to non-citizens is not a sustainable option.

In light of the current economic times, I'm sure there are many American citizens and legal immigrants that would be willing to do these jobs now, after losing theirs. With unemployment now at almost 8%, illegals are taking the grunt work jobs that out of work Americans could be doing. Hundreds of millions of dollars earned by illegals in this country each year are sent back home to Mexico. This has a two fold negative effect on our economy; taking jobs from legal citizens and removing wealth from our country. Not to mention all the lost tax revenue since most illegals don't pay income tax, burden on our health care system, school system and bad credit and mortgage loans which our govt. forced banks to provide. I could go on and on...

Secure our borders now and deport those here illegally!

_________________________________

Most immigrants DO go to a new country to better themselves and to make a better life for their families. No argument there.

However, this country has an immigration policy in place. It allows for a certain amount of LEGAL immigrants each year. It accounts for natural disasters and political and personal persecution. It is a CONTROL that exists for the economic and personal protection of the citizens and legal residents of this country.

Illegal immigration circumvents the controls of background checks, medical concerns and the economic stability of the host country. A fair, but firm, immigration policy is critical. Not enforcing the one that exists is CRIMINAL.

As for those landscaper, janitor, babysitter, busboy and 'top chef' (huh?) jobs... those are called 'starter jobs'. Maybe YOU were born with a silver spoon, but I've done several of those jobs and moved on to better ones, while going to college, then joing the CPD. My parents and grandparents weren't ashamed to do those jobs, either; that's what put a roof over our heads and food on our tables.

It says a lot about your personal opinion of those jobs, that you think they're menial or beneath you. There are millions of out of work American citizens who would be happy to have those jobs right now, but the flood of illegals (not 'undocumenteds', but ILLEGALS) has a monopoly on the market.

Update on this -- Ryan LeVin is indeed in CCJ, being held on NO BOND -- but he's in Division 8, the medical division. I was close. If you don't have money they sling you in just anywhere on a cement floor and let you writhe around puking for three days until you get over your dope sickness -- or die of meningitis, if that was your problem.

Chicago: A Sanctuary City because?

1. U.S. citizenship isn't required to vote in municipal elections, only proof of residency.

2. Numbers vary but estimates of illegal immigrants in the city hover around 200k. In the last few municipal elections the born 7 naturalized citizen electorate is counted on as being too pissed/aggravated to bother going to the polls... That is how shortshanks claims a mandate of @ 80% of the "vote" or in REAL MATH, 80% of 25% of registered voters who even bothered going to vote.

3. Shortshanks made it a sanctuary to puff up HDO as he no longer gives a shit about the white ethnic voting bloc or the black voting block. If these are sufficiently riled up then he has on of his designated patsies run to siphon off votes.

3. He still very much gives a shit about the Lincoln Pk/Hyde Pk lakefront liberal vote... they have money so they're going to be taken care of...

Oh happy day when shortshanks new political base is destroyed... we will be watching what develops in Colorado with keen interest. The G should tell mayor shitshorts to fuck that sanctuary city noise, comply with federal statute & stfu... We don't have a problem with immigrants who are here lawfully. Of particular note is the nonsense the drug cartels are crossing the rio grande with... the southwestern U.S. has been dealing with some very ugly shit these drug gangs have been doing... border integrity should be enforced with vigilance.

This is the type of attitude that I cannot comprehend.

Do you know anything about how immigration to the US used to work? Families would spend all of their savings (which probably took them quite a few years to save up) for a trip on a crowded boat just to reach Ellis Island, or some other entry point, and would receive a 6 second visual medical exam. If they looked sick or lame or the examiner just didn't like them, they were refused entry. Compared to that legal applications and your so-called "Red Tape" don't seem too bad.
Bypassing US law because it doesn't suit your interests isn't an excuse.

"I think the 'Sanctuary Cities' should rethink their policies. Especially with all the violence that is happening in Mexico now. That violence is spreading to this country. I heard an officer from Phoenix talk about all the kidnappings they are experiencing in that city."

ABC News has recently run major national TV stories about the tremendous kidnapping problem in Phoenix; the police chief there says that if is it not stopped it is going to become nationwide.

Here -- take your pick of the stories and videos.

Tonight, CBS' _60 Minutes_ ran another story on the tremendous drug war/kidnappings in Mexico that is spilling over into the US. One Mexican police chief was told that one of his officers would be killed every 48 hours until he, the chief, resigned. They killed two cops and the chief did indeed resign.

They related one story in which a five-year-old boy whose parents ran a tiny stall selling fruit in the town square was kidnapped. When the ransom demands could not be met, the boy was killed with an injection of acid. There are headless bodies dangling from highway overpasses down there...film of shiny police cars with about 800 bullet holes in them from full-auto fire...

Here's the link to tonight's story and video --

The new Homeland Security secretary, Janet Napolitano, does not rule out a "troop surge to the border" to try to keep this contained. These people are as serious as a heart attack, and they are not going to just go away.

"Get ready for about 200,000 illegal aliens to be resettled in Cook County when Mexico collapses and millions of refugees head north."

It'll really be something when the ones fleeing north run into the ones heading back south from the collapsing U.S.A. --

Illegal immigrants "self deport" as woes mount

Mon Dec 24, 2007 3:09am EST

By Tim Gaynor

PHOENIX (Reuters) - Mexican illegal immigrant Lindi sat down with her husband Marco Antonio in the weeks before Christmas to decide when to go back to Mexico.

She has spent three years working as a hairdresser in and around Phoenix, but now she figures it is time to go back to her hometown of Aguascalientes in central Mexico.

"The situation has got so tough that there don't seem to be many options left for us," Lindi, who asked for her last name not to be used, told Reuters.

The couple are among a growing number of illegal immigrants across the United States who are starting to pack their bags and move on as a crackdown on undocumented immigrants widens and the U.S. economy slows, turning a traditional Christmas trek home into a one-way trip...

Oh...in tonight's _60 Minutes_ report on the drug war in Mexico, CBS deliberately misled its audience that the weapons used by the criminals are coming from American civilian sources.

They showed film of full-automatic M16s, belt-fed machine guns, and 40mm grenade launchers with oodles of shiny, fresh ammo -- with a voice-over about the "Second Amendment" and "expiration of the assault weapons ban" -- as though such war materiel had ever been available down at Ed's Gun Store.

My guess is that it's all stuff "redirected" from Mexican army armories...

CBS is full of shit -- but, then, you knew that already.

They have the opportunity to fight for their own freedom and to change their corrupt government. But instead, they would rather travel 3,000 miles and stand in the cold on Pulaski Avenue for nothing. These are the moral cowards of the Mexican population. Norteno = Coward.

, that immigrants who enter this country do the grunt work that you and I will not allowed ourselves to do
_______________________
There is no job a white man or a black man will not do. They just won't do it for a pittance. It's called exploitation, regardless if the worker is black, white or brown. The mexican worker needs to stand upo= for himself or herself. Whether he is in Mexico or here.

"Not an Irishman"

My factual points remain. And to boot your very own argument is now going to be used against you.

The bulk of illegal immigrants also spend their life savings to get a chance to get into this country.

Next..................

Last week ICE raided a factory out west and rounded up approx 100 illegals. Next day 150 legal American citizens showed up and applied for jobs. I would like to see more of that.
