    Next time your lawn guy shows up with the work crew ask to see the green cards! Perhaps that might discourage a few. Might need to do your own lawn or hire the kid next doors. With the drugs, it is the US that needs to go cold turkey and stop the demand. Also in the US many people know someone who sells drugs but they will not turn them in. They are just as guilty as the seller when someone ODs or kills someone (children) on the road. Laws have a purpose! Many too dumb to know that.

    Guys. Immigration deports people going to work (for little money) so we won’t have to pay more money for going out to eat, getting our washed cars, etc. Immigration RARLEY deports criminals. I have seen this with my own eyes, no one can tell me different. I guess the criminals are the ones that maintains them busy and secures a job? Who knows……its all backwards.

    Its cheaper to hire someone like this person, we have a market in the US were many people legal or illegal are bringing in what is wanted and consumed in the USA this is a 2 way problem. After they pay for their crime they are deported.

    He has committed a major crime. Why wouldn’t you deport him? And while he is with buddies with lesser offences deport them also. But that is not how it works is it? Is it?

    Every crime I have read about today has been committed by illegal immigrants. There should be a way to send them to prison and then deport them and make them stay where they are sent. The worst kind of illegal immigrants are the ones who come here and commit crimes besides being here illegally. We could fix this, but our Congress doesn’t seem to want to or be able to get much done anymore. They aren’t protecting the US citizens at all.
