Bizarro world...

Only in America do foreigners illegally in our country stand up before our public officials, waving the flags of their own countries while complaining about our immigration enforcement policies and demand that our legislators resign.

More than 200 people, many wearing signs reading "Terminate Secure Communities" and carrying flags from countries including Mexico and Brazil, packed a conference room in Los Angeles Monday night to recount their experiences with a program they say is making immigrants reluctant to report crime to police out of fear of getting deported.

"Every day I live the nightmare of this program," said Blanca Perez, 38, who said she was arrested in February for street vending without a permit. "Now I am facing deportation for the simple act of selling ice cream in the street."

No, illegal. You're facing deportation for being in our country without our permission. American laws mean things, which is undoubtedly one of the reasons why our country is so much better than the one that you left.

What I want to know is why Blanca Perez isn't back in her own country or sitting in a detention center right now. I also want to know why there wasn't a big ICE detention bus parked outside that meeting and several enforcement agents on hand to check ID's. I guarantee you that if ICE does that once or twice at meetings like this, we'll see an end to the repeated spectacle of foreigners who are unlawfully in our country loudly and arrogantly making demands of our elected representatives.

Any Presidential candidate who promises to take such an action will have my vote in 2012.

  1. This is one of several things that makes me need to wrap my head in duct tape to keep it from exploding. Like what is going on in MD over in-state tuition for illegals.

  4. I now go to WalMart pharmacy for my meds. It's adjacent to a Home Depot.
    On any given weekday, there are perhaps 25 persons outside in the driveways seeking manual labor work.
    I'd bet most are illegal aliens. AND, couldn't one argue begging for work in that fashion is PROBABLE CAUSE?
    Where are the INS vans?

  5. Maybe we do need a grinding depression just to get rid of the illegals. I bet 25 percent unemployment will do that.

    Re-elect Obama and find out folks!
