    This is pathetic. Sorry, but this woman should appologize for her words.


    Hispanic groups call for moratorium on work raids

    SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - U.S. Hispanic groups and activists on Thursday called for a moratorium on workplace raids to round up illegal immigrants, saying they were reminiscent of Nazi crackdowns on Jews in the 1930s.

    They accused the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement of "racial profiling," or selective enforcement against Hispanics, for arresting 1,300 workers on immigration violations in December 12 raids at meatpacking plants in six states.

    "We are demanding an end to these immigration raids, where they are targeting brown faces. That is major, major racial profiling, and that cannot be tolerated," said Rosa Rosales, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, at a news conference.

    "This unfortunately reminds me of when Hitler began rounding up the Jews for no reason and locking them up," Democratic Party activist Carla Vela said. "Now they're coming for the Latinos, who will they come for next?"




    BTW, for those of you who don't believe me when I say this issue is about future votes, and not about principled policy, here's the second to last paragraph in the article:

    Anger at anti-immigrant rhetoric and measures is said to have hurt Republican candidates with Hispanic voters in November elections that saw the Democrats win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.

    Did she specify where the ovens were?

    Howabout what kind of gas we're using? Zyklon B perhaps?


    The Nazis rounded up Jews and put them on trains INTO Germany/Austria.

    We'd like to take ILLEGAL immigrants, and put them on trains OUT OF America.


    Get in line like everyone else Mami.

    My only beefs are with the notion that there are people sitting patiently at the Mexico City embassy waiting for their turn in the legit line to come up, which will likely never happen because the illegals are 'cutting in front' so to speak, and the fact that there is a flow of illegals means that terrorists can get lost in the traffic.

    Other than those two factors, expensive cops are being wasted when they arrest people for going to work.
