Rally Planned Against Raids Of Illegal Immigrants
CBS affiliate, Chicago ^ | Apr 20 2006 | Sylvia Gomez

Posted on 04/20/2006 10:59:23 AM PDT by george wythe

Protesters are gathering to rally against a new round of raids on undocumented immigrants.

Numerous raids have left Chicago families without their loved ones, and this morning the government is talking about its new policy.

[snip]

But illegal immigrant advocates are calling this action and crackdown immoral and they are outraged. They are planning a protest outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters and another protest is planned this afternoon.

They are asking immigration officials to halt action until Congress comes up with its new laws because it might allow some immigrants to remain in the U.S.

Dozens of illegal immigrants arrested, released in hours

There was a crackdown Wednesday and dozens of illegal immigrants were arrested.

Many of those same immigrants were released just hours later

It was the last thing they, and their families, expected.

"They are not criminals. All they're here for is to work for their family," said Mariz Gomez.

Its immoral to protect our country. The Open Borders Lobby folks ought to cool their faux outrage, since illegal aliens arrested are still not summarily deported. Its just for show the ICE is doing this to take the heat off the Administration for the absence of an enforcement policy. They don't really mean to get serious there though.

This will be sweet. Illegals gathering outside the ICE office. Let's see if the ICE has grown any stones.

Yep. Its just PR. And they think the American people are too stupid not to notice what they're doing. It means we need to turn up the heat on Washington.

It's been a good PR move for the Bush administration. Most of my acquaintances are happy something was being done about the illegal immigration issue.

Folks, this is not about the illegals.

ICE could care less about them, unless they will provide evidence against the IFCO and its executives.

This is about going after a corporation that systematically helps illegals enter the US and systematically commits Social Security fraud and other federal crimes.
If we can get employers from hiring illegals, then illegals won't come here.

They want ICE to halt action, while they pour across the border, in record numbers and at break neck speed in anticipation of Amnesty.

Good grief, how stupid do they think we are?

Don't enforce the laws until we can get the laws deleted. Nice.

Michelle Malkin has some keen insights into these raids on her site today.

Suspicious timing is you ask me. Methinks Bush is trying to soften everyone up so he has a better chance of getting his amnesty proposal passed when Congress reconvenes.

The investigation started almost a year ago and the raid took months to coordinate.

Senator Graham (R-South Carolina) says that the status quo is the biggest amnesty program of them all.

Once the number of illegals goes up to 20 or 30 millions, then they will own the issue.

The illegals were quickly released in Houston, under the excuses of 'overcrowding' and 'computer glitches.' How can the feds remove 30 million people then if they can't handle a few dozens of illegals?

They didn't protect the country. It was a "catch and relase" raid. All the illegals captured were given court dates and let go - never to be seen again.

Or until we have let in enough illegals to create "facts on the ground," a strong bargaining position.

It's kinda like having a yard full of gophers....

As long as they are allowed to eat all the garden they want they dont stick their heads up...too often

Cut them off though...and they suddenly appear all over the place and then you know you have a major infestation....

imo

Man, how naive are you?

Do you work for CBP or ICE?

I do. Have you spoken with any agents involved in the investigation and raids?

I have.

Thanks for playing.

Next!

Precisely.

Statements such as yours will spread like wildfire all the way back to Mexico.

They will see our LEOs as powerless and inept fools, and will continue to swarm into our nation.

In short, we are in serious trouble.

When Customs and Immigration merged into ICE, the legacy Customs investigators were GS-13's (pay level) while the INS Investigators were GS-11's.

Since the the Feds could not demote the GS-13's, the GS-11's got promoted to GS-13's.

The INS Supervisors the were GS-12, GS-13 and GS-14 got promoted to GS-14, and GS-15 to match the Customs Supervisors.

This cost billions which ICE had to borrow against it's future budgets to get.

It will be a few years before ICE has any real money for investigation other they terrorist stuff.

Newt was on the tube a few days back and said his main suggestion to deal with illegals is to go after the Companies hard and the problem will take care of itself.

There has to be a smarter way than the brute force method of dealing with illegals one by one. On ants I find that if you use the bait traps they take it back to the queen and everyone dies. Seems there may be something to learn from this.

He's 100% correct.

Take away the jobs and take away the welfare and the vast majority of illegals will leave on their own accord.

The rest can be dealt with the hard way.
