Illegal immigrant smuggling protection groups are up in arms calling it a "abuse of homeland security powers"[rolleyes]
Illegal Sears Tower Workers Arrested Fri May 23,10:30 AM ET Add U.S. National - AP to My Yahoo! CHICAGO - Immigrants working illegally at Sears Tower have been arrested by federal authorities who said security concerns prompted the crackdown. Immigration officials would not confirm the number of people arrested, their countries of origin or when the arrests were made. They said Thursday the arrests were necessary to protect the 110-story building from terrorism. Gail Montenegro, spokeswoman for the Chicago office of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said immigrants working illegally may be law abiding but are vulnerable to being blackmailed by terrorists. Critics said the arrests do nothing to make the building or Chicago safer. "This is really an outrageous abuse of national security rhetoric to scapegoat people who are doing nothing but working in restaurants," said Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the Illinois Coalition for the Immigrant and Refugee Rights. Sears Tower spokesman Mark Spencer said the immigrants worked for tenants of the building, not for the building itself.

not sedition? He is arguing for smuggling people into the country illegally, and without knowledge of their backgrounds, when people are actively trying to blow up Americans around the world.

I think we should subsidize the airlines by providing all illegal aliens with a 1-way ticket to France. [rolleyes]

And here is the crux of mindset of why no one in power seems to be willing or able to arrest and deport those that are in this country illegally. Christ on a pogo stick!!!!!!! HOW THE HELL COULD ANYONE MAKE THAT STATEMENT AND NOT HAVE THEIR HEAD EXPLODE?!? IF YOU ENTERED THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY YOU ARE N-O-T "LAW ABIDING". Fuck! This is a spokesperson for the federal agency responsible for controlling immigration. It's an extremely damning insight into the thinking of our government and why this nation will fall from within.
