    Reasons to Deport Illegal Aliens...

    $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year. http://tinyurl.com/zob77

    $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

    $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.html

    $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English! http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP.../01/ldt.0.html (This one does not work but it is the same one as no. 5 below http://transcripts.cnn.com:80/TRANSC.../ldt.01.html.)

    $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

    $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

    30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

    $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for

    Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers. http://premium.cnn.com/TRANSCIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.html (This one did not work but it is the same as no. 7 or 9. http://transcripts.cnn.com:80/TRANSC...1/ldt.01.html)

    $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...01/ldt.01.html

    During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into

    the U. S. from the Southern border. Homeland Security Report: http://tinyurl.com/t9sht

    The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."ť (No longer available from http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.o...eportation.pdf but can be downloaded free from http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.o...b=deportation)

    In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. http://www.rense.com/general75/niht.htm

    "The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million *** Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States ". http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml (Try this one instead: http://www.drdsk.com/articles.html#Illegals)

    So using the LOWEST estimates, the annual cost OF ILLEGAL ALIENS is $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR! So if deporting them costs between $206 and $230 BILLION DOLLARS, get rid of em', We'll be ahead after the 1st year!!!

    There aren't any cob webs. Reading through the code it could be used to include landlords. Although at present they don't it has the ability to be applied. The intent of it may have been for coyotes and smugglers but it can be used at the Gov's discretion for a landlord or even an employer who missed a step when he hired that one illegal by accident. I cited the example of abortion clinic protesters and RICO. That was a far stretch and what did protesting have to do with organized crime? Very little. RICO was designed for the mafia but can be applied to anything the Gov wants it to. It just depends on who is interpreting the law. You get an activist judge who is a militant pro-abortionist and that is all it took to get planned parenthood its desired result. Same could happen here. Get a judge who dislikes all immigrants and it could be made to come down hard on anyone who renders any aid direct or indirect. It just depends on what they consider to be 'knowing' or 'in reckless disregard'. Since it isn't defined that could be made to include 'ignorance is not a defense' as one extreme or what ever they choose. Its wide open for interpretation.
    Davdah,
    What you are describing such as an a judge coming down hard on all immigrants is a remote possibility, at best. Title 8 Section 1324 is intended for human smuggling and nothing else. Any additional interpretation to expand on the intent is for the sole pupose of frar mongering or xenophobia.

    As for the example of RICO and the abortion protests, when it was applied by the lower court judge, it was challenged. The Supreme Court rejected the argument on a 8-1 decision and allowed protests to continue. That Supreme Court decision not only impacted the limitations for RICO, it set a precedent as well. SCOTUS and other judicial reviews are tantamount on precedent. It is the reason why Roe v Wade will not be overturned, even with a super majority conservative Supreme Court.

    As for Chickens. Your argument about who would want to work there is a bit weak. Who 'wants' to work at all? How many people really like their job? The numbers are probably low on both poles. If the wage is good enough they will come. If Johnny is working at a fast food place for 8.00 an hour and Swift offers 13 or 14 there is a good chance Johnny will apply. Other factors weigh in but much of it depends on the salary offered. Obviously the COGS will jump and it will be passed on to Joe consumer but it isn't any different than any other price increase. Has anyone seen prices drop on anything long term? Any takers? What will happen? Some plants will close. That is inevitable. The ones that stay open will have higher costs and they will probably start looking for ways to increase productivity. Kind of like what Henry Ford did. They will find ways to bring the costs back down again. We should not subsidize lazy industry because they want to avoid the cost of modernization. The subsidy has been substandard pay to people who were being taken advantage of due to status. Was that right to begin with? Of course not.
    With low skilled or unskilled workers, it is not that they are being taken advantage of en mass, it is the fact that most everybody has those skills that the employers are looking for whether one is looking for the job or not. Thus, it comes to who will work those jobs given socioeconomic factors in the society. It is false to claim that if wages were increased, then "REAL AMERICANS" will work those types of jobs, given if everything else is equal. The reason is that if you remove the illegal laborers from the pool, wages will not increase. The market forces from suppliers to consumers to competitors will dictate what those wages will be deemed. Unless you want to argue that government should artificially inflate those wages, even that will be economically suicidal.

    Yes we do live in a material 'world'. Its not isolated to the US of A. Its everywhere. From the streets of Brazil to the former USSR. They like fashion as much as we do. They want to drive a Rolls Royce too. Who doesn't? Nothing wrong with that. Its why we get up every morning and go to work. You could live under a bridge with a shopping cart but you don't. Why does anyone try to get promotion? Why does anyone want to live in the better section of town? Its all material. You may think its unnecessary to live in a 10,000. sq ft house but the illegal thinks the same of your 2500 sq ft house. Who's interpretation is correct?
    Again, I said I was not debating the merits nor dis meritsbut of a materialistically society, Davhad. But listen to yourself Davdah. On the one hand you said if companies like Swift pay higher wages, then "real Americans" could afford to work there. However, you also said that most people want to live in a better place. And since low skilled employers are at the bottom of the list for people to improve themselves, then why will those employers pay higher wages in the first place since that will make it harder to compete? Talk about being ignorant in economics

    There are arguments on both sides for global economy. The problem is the standard of living in a global market place would, if fully implemented, put everyone on the same level.
    I don't know about you but I don't want to live at the same standard as the people who are running away from it and crossing our border. We can't allow that. As far as the 4.9% rate goes that doesn't include a lot of people. I think 0% is a better rate. Yes I know its impossible but the closer the better.
    You are misinterpreting what globalization is and what it is about, Davdah. Globalization has existed with the Phoenicians, with the Romans, with the Chinese, with colonialization, and now in the 20th and 21st centuries. Every time when globalization flourished, economies both domestically and internationally have flourished. When protectionism was the norm, domestic economies floundered, sometimes into a depression. When economist talk about income inequalities, it is not about who has more and who does not, it is about economic distribution of economic benefits, which does not always equate into wealth.

    Crimes by Illegal Immigrants

    Vehicular Homicide/Reckless Endangerment

    A man who is facing vehicular homicide charges in Madison County after his 18-year-old passenger was killed in a car crash last month is an illegal immigrant, according to the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Encino, 27, who admitted to deputies at the scene "to drinking a 12-pack of beer earlier in the night," is now facing charges of vehicular homicide and tampering with evidence after the one-car accident that killed Sergio Lopez, 18, and injured Hugo Trejo, 20. An administrative hold was also placed on Encino this week after an agent for the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement determined the suspect was in the U.S. illegally. He is being held on $150,000 bond.

    Victim
    The Marti family as pictured here during a happy moment no longer exists. Sean, just 24 years old, and his daughter Sage, 5 months old, were killed February 27 by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way on Highway 84 in Idaho. Natalie Marti was in a coma after the head-on crash and returned slowly to waking consciousness over a period of weeks. With coma victims, full mental functioning and memory can take much longer. She had attended college in Boise while she and Sean managed an apartment complex.
    Edgar Vasquez Hernandez, who worked as a house framer, was charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter and one count of aggravated driving. Court records show Hernandez was intoxicated at the time of the crash. Hispanics are statistically more likely to drive drunk than other groups, and motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death up to age 24 among Latinos.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Victim
    In January 2002, five-year-old Ana Cerna was another tragic death at the hands of a irresponsible illegal alien. The girl was one of five children and one adult hit by the car driven by Osvaldo Urzua, a Mexican living in Oakland, California. Ana died after being taken off life support; she had attended kindergarten. Urzua sped away from the crime scene because he feared being deported and expressed no interest in what had happened to the children he struck. On July 15, 2002, he was ordered to spend six years in prison, a disappointingly short sentence for the families of the victims.
    People like Osvaldo Urzua have created California's hit-and-run crisis resulting from the state being home to so many illegal alien drivers. The state's number of hit-and-run accidents has been accelerating, and is more than twice the national average for percentage of traffic accidents where the driver leaves the scene, i.e. 7.8 percent of the state's fatal crashes in 2001 compared with the 3.8 percent nationally. Since unlicensed drivers involved in fatal crashes may be deported, they are highly motivated not to be caught. As California Highway Patrol spokesman Steve Kohler remarked, someone who runs from an accident is "a person who may feel like they have nothing to lose." An illegal alien criminal would indeed qualify as someone with zero connection with the American community and nothing to lose.

    The danger on the highways from truckloads of illegal aliens in border areas has been increasing drastically. It is not unusual for a van full of illegal aliens to speed down the road in the wrong direction to avoid American law enforcement, causing death and injury to both American citizens and foreigners. One of the worst examples (shown at the left) took place near San Diego June 25, 2002, where seven people were killed and at least 31 were injured when a van tried to avoid a border checkpoint by turning the lights off and speeding against oncoming traffic in the wrong lane. Larry S. Baca of Albuquerque was killed when his Ford was smashed head-on by the immigrant van and knocked airborne. On March 10, 2003, two men were killed and 20 people were injured when a stolen truck loaded with illegal aliens tried to outrun American authorities.

    Cops Plan ID Checks of Jailed Immigrants
    In one case, Gustavo Reyes Garcia had been jailed at least 14 times before he was accused in June of crashing into a car while driving drunk, killing a Mt. Juliet couple. In another case, Ivan Moreno is accused of killing his 74-year-old neighbor in her Bellevue home last month by strangling her and smashing her head with a statue from her garden. At the time of the killing, Moreno had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on a charge of driving on a suspended license.

    Another tragic addition to the list of unnessary deaths caused by violent illegal aliens was the newlywed couple, James and Emilia Lee of Huachuca City, Arizona, who had been married only six weeks. They were killed Oct. 16 when a truckload of at least 17 illegal aliens traveling at 90 mph crashed into several vehicles near the town of Sierra Vista, leaving a horrific scene of carnage. The aliens were trying to escape police after they had run a stop sign, and the truck rammed into a line of nine vehicles waiting for a turn light near Fort Huachuca.

    Little Madelyn Cumpston is sitting next to a statue of her older sister Annie, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Six-year-old Annie was struck and killed in downtown Baltimore as she and her family were leaving the circus March 22. At school, Annie Cumpston was active in dance and gymnastics. But as the family left the circus, even holding her mom's hand couldn't save her from being struck by a truck driven by illegal alien Guillermo Diaz when it veered into the crosswalk. She died later that evening at the hospital.
    After striking the little girl, Diaz drove off. Witness Ryan Jones tried to stop the fleeing Diaz, Jones became caught on the door of the truck and was dragged for a distance. When Diaz was arrested, he did not have a driver's license, the tags on the truck were expired and his blood-alcohol level was 0.07 percent, just below the state limit of 0.08. Diaz has been in the United States illegally for four years doing construction work. At sentencing in early October, Diaz received 10 years in prison but is eligible for parole in just two years.

    Edgar Vasquez-Hernandez is facing only a few decades in prison for destroying a young family, killing father Shawn Marti (24) and baby Sage (5 months), and putting mother Natalie into a coma for two weeks. According to court records, Vasquez-Hernandez was driving drunk and drinking Mad Dog 20/20 wine in his pickup. The degree of intoxication has not yet been released, but it must have been substantial judging by descriptions of the accident: the accident occurred when he drove his truck eastbound in the westbound lanes of Interstate 84, resulting in the horrific head-on crash.

    Victim
    Officer Will Seuis a motorcycle patrolman in Oakland, California, was killed on his ride home by an illegal alien. Fortunately some witnesses on the highway immediately phoned 911 and the accused hit-and-run driver, Carlos Mares, was quickly caught. Mares was driving his truck with a commercial load.
    A sixteen-year veteran of the Police Department, Officer Seuis was remembered at his funeral as a hard-working cop who had received 33 letters of appreciation from citizens, including one from a motorist he had ticketed. He had been in traffic enforcement since 1998, and was a member of the department's 20-member precision motorcycle drill team. Seuis left a wife, Michelle, and two daughters.
    The accused killer has a history of traffic convictions. It's curious that illegal alien Mares has his own business, Mares Trucking.

    State Policies that Turn a Blind Eye to Illegal Immigration Kill Marine and Companion
    It was Eduardo Raul Morales-Soriano who killed Marine Corporal Brian Mathews, who had recently served an eight-month stint in Iraq, and Jennifer Bower on a Maryland highway on Thanksgiving night, but it was the willful policies of two states "” North Carolina and Maryland "” that put the murder weapon in Morales-Soriano's hands. The weapon was a Nissan Sentra that Morales-Soriano was driving with a blood alcohol level of .32 "” the highest level that the Chesapeake regional director of Mothers Against Drunk Driving has ever heard of.

    Jonathan Narvaez-Pena, 22, of Bell Road was jailed in lieu of a $2 million bond for allegedly causing a collision of six vehicles that resulted in the deaths of a south Nashville father and his 2-year-old son, according to a department media release.
    "Witnesses reported Narvaez-Pena was driving his Buick Park Avenue recklessly by speeding and running red lights as he traveled outbound on Murfreesboro Pike," authorities said. "He ran the red light at the Murfreesboro Road-Bell Road intersection and collided into the driver's side of a Ford Contour that was turning left onto Murfreesboro Road."
    Antoine ***vu, 43, and his son Eddy were killed in the accident, according to police. ***vu's wife, Josephine, 40, and his 6-month-old son, Tony, were seriously injured. Narvaez-Pena and a 2-year-old daughter, Hillary Narvaez, received noncritical injuries in the accident. Eleven people were transported to area hospitals, according to authorities.
    Narvaez-Pena "admitted to officers that he had consumed multiple shots of tequila prior to the collision," authorities said. Investigators listed alcohol, speed and the running of a red light as the contributing factors to the fatal crash.

    Victim
    Eighteen-year-old Tricia Taylor of Detroit was in court in December 2002 to hear the plea of the illegal alien who caused her to lose both legs above the knees. Jose Carcamo was driving under the influence (.08 percent blood alcohol level) and speeding when he drove over a curb and smashed Taylor into a wall. One report stated that Carcamo has had 17 violations since 1995. Another noted that he was drag racing at the time of the crash. It is agreed that the car was travelling between 50 and 75 miles per hour on a street posted for 25 mph. Taylor's companion Noah Menard suffered a fractured skull and collarbone, as well as requiring eight pins to reconstruct his mangled elbow. The INS had twice begun deportation proceeding against Carcamo to return him to El Salvador, but regrettably did not follow through. Carcamo will be out of jail in a few years, but Tricia Taylor faces a lifetime of pain and disability because of another failure of the INS to remove a dangerous alien. Incidentally, drinking to excess and then driving is celebrated in Hispanic cultures rather than condemned. Sentencing Update: On January 13, 2003 Jose Carcamo was sentenced to 3-5 years in prison. Four months after the crash, Tricia Taylor still must take pain medication, antibiotics, anti-depressants and sleeping pills. Chronic bone infection means she may yet lose more of her right leg. Carcamo sent a note of apology to Taylor and Menard, but misspelled the names. She responded, "It hurts me every time I see him. He acts like he's sorry, but you'd think he would know our names." She is not forgiving, either: "I have my whole life with no legs ... I'm only 18. He gets no forgiveness."

    Federal and local authorities are trying to figure out how an illegal immigrant from Mexico managed to avoid deportation despite being arrested more than a dozen times in the past five years, agency officials said Thursday. Gustavo Reyes Garcia, 28, has accumulated dozens of criminal charges and been arrested 14 times in Nashville without being flagged by federal authorities for being in the country illegally. He caught their attention after he was accused of killing two people on June 8. It was his 15th arrest. Garcia's past charges include four DUI arrests, evading arrest, and two separate incidents in which he was accused of leaving the scene of an accident where there was bodily injury. For the past two months Moreno worked as a cook at the Blackstone Brewery restaurant on West End Avenue. According to the manager, he also went by a different name. Here illegally, identity thief and finally - a cold-blooded murderer, it's a crime that Blackstone Brewery hired this illegal alien.

    The driver of a Ford Explorer, Julio Villasana, 33, was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide, drunk driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. Villasana was driving the wrong direction when he ran into Charles Derrington riding on his motorcycle head on. The wreck threw Derrington off of his motorcycle and into the median. Derrington later died. Villasana jumped out of his truck and tried to run away. Police officers were finally able to arrest him. Villasana has been deported from the United States before, and there is no record of permission for him to be here. The victim in the motorcycle crash was a well-known mandolin maker.

    In July of 2004, a young man on a motorcycle was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Thornton, Colorado. The illegal alien who was arrested for that crime had six prior arrests since 1996, but no court or police authority in Adams County or Boulder County asked for him to be deported. The number of similar cases in Colorado, where a violent crime has been committed by an illegal alien with a prior Colorado arrest record, is unknown.

    The suspect being sought in the May 2005 shooting death of a Denver police officer is an illegal alien who had been stopped three times previously for traffic violations and appeared in court twice, but was never reported to ICE for deportation. The suspect worked illegally in a restaurant whose part owner is the Mayor of Denver.

    Officer Michael Gordon lost his life to a drunk driving illegal alien. The Chicago policeman was in the driver's seat of his squad car when it was struck by Luis Calle, a Guatemalan whose blood alcohol level was 0.177, twice the legal limit. Another officer, John Delcason, sustained injuries and was in fair condition in the hospital a few days after the incident. Luis Calle died a few hours after striking the police car.
    Michael Gordon is survived by his wife and four children. Several of his relatives have also been police officers, including his father, brother, uncle and cousin. Before entering the police department, Gordon joined the 81st Airborne right after high school, serving in Bosnia and Korea. As a policeman, he asked to be assigned to a tough part of Chicago because he wanted to do more than just write tickets.

    A man with multiple drunken driving convictions who is now accused of plowing into and killing another driver in Ramona, CA this week was in court Thursday to respond to six criminal charges, including murder and drunken driving charges. Rafael Ramirez Perez, who had been deported to Mexico earlier this year, faces six counts associated with the Tuesday evening head-on collision that killed 22-year-old Amy Marie Kortlang of Ramona and injured four people, including Perez. Police said Perez fled from the scene after the 8:50 p.m. crash, which was in a dark area south of Mussey Grade Road. The 22-year-old Perez could face life in prison if convicted of murder. Other charges he faces include vehicular manslaughter, driving without a license and driving while drunk "”- with the enhancement of at least three drunken driving convictions within the last 10 years.

    On 14 September 2006, a day after our 23rd wedding anniversary, an illegal alien murdered my wife. She was driving to work at The Mountain Home Veterans Administration Hospital, Johnson City, Tennessee when she was forced off the road and struck by a pickup truck owned and registered to the assailant. After the collision, the man kicked his way out of the truck's windshield and fled into the woods. Tracking dogs found him two hours later...about the time I watched, in horror, as our local volunteer firemen, our neighbors, finally extracted my wife's broken and lifeless body from her car. She was the reason I drew breath every day. In my opinion, thousands are complicit in the murder; all three branches of our federal government, agencies within the Department of Homeland Security, the clerk who issued vehicle registration and tags without a license or insurance and who knows how many others that didn't do their job. The illegal from Mexico was simply the tip of the spear. I will add that five years ago I was similarly struck and almost killed by an illegal alien who fled the area and all responsibility and that my wife was the third fatality suffered by this small mountain community under similar circumstances in the last two years. The local District Attorney calls this rate of fatalities caused by illegals an epidemic. I've listened to the immigration/alien invasion debate rage on ad-nauseam, but I've yet to hear this angle on the problem. How many other families have been similarly affected? Given that there may be as many as 15 - 20 million illegals driving around without licenses or insurance, what is the emotional and financial burden incurred by our citizens by those whom enjoy the benefits of our society, yet take no responsibility in supporting it? Surely this is a story that warrants further investigation by the national media. I realize that I have a relatively higher standard of leadership than most. I simply cannot fathom, however, this total breakdown in accountability and responsibility. Surely to God we can at least make the clerks at the DMV do their job and have them check for valid operator's licenses and insurance.

    Louella Winton was severely injured when a van driven by a woman with no driving experience crashed through her house and into the house next door. Her neighbor said she heard the van and says the woman driving never slowed down. Mrs. Winton was still in bed when her house was hit and ended up under the van outside her house. She suffered four badly broken ribs, a collapsed lung, head trauma and she has since suffered a stroke. Yesterday, doctors told the family there is no hope of a recovery, and according to her wishes, she elected not to go on a ventilator. Vitalina Bautista Vargas entered a guilty plea in Criminal Court to vehicular homicide. She was given four years probation. Prosecutor Wood said federal officials insisted that she be deported. He said as a convicted felon, she will not be allowed to apply to re-enter the country for at least 10 years.

    Victim
    On the day after New Years 2003, six-year-old Jose Soto was riding his bike around the parking lot near his parents' apartment house when he was struck and severely injured by a man backing out in a red truck. Witnesses were shocked when the man stopped and pulled the child from under the truck and roughly threw him aside before speeding off. At this writing, Jose is in critical condition in a Houston hospital and the perpetrator is believed to be on his way to Mexico, if not already there. The man's name was released a few days later: Jose Ines Morales. As noted above, once a criminal reaches Mexico, he has effectively eluded the law permanently, since America's southern neighbor refuses to extradite, as a matter of policy, criminals who may be punished according to the severity of their crimes.

    Christopher Shackleford, 19, was killed July 29, 2000, in Marietta, Georgia, by a drunk driver, an illegal alien whose blood alcohol was at twice the legal limit. Also killed were two other teenagers in the car "” Julieanne Pascoe, 18, and Kelli Bourgeois, 19. Chris was an aspiring filmmaker, and was majoring in film at Georgia State University where he was a freshman.
    When Atlanta INS assistant district director Bart Szafnicki read about the deaths, he decided that more serious action against drunk driving illegal aliens was needed, and he began deportation proceedings against 64 such foreigners in his district. "I thought about how I would feel if it was my child," said Szafnicki. "Anyone who is arrested for DUI who is an illegal alien needs to go home. The native-born population in the U.S. has largely recognized the problem with DUI. But with the new influx of immigrants, I just don't think the word has filtered down."
    In May 2001, Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez, the drunk-driving illegal alien, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, DUI, reckless driving, possession of alcohol by a minor, and several other charges. For all that, he was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

A third-grade student in Decatur Alabama, Amber lived for a few hours on life support until medical staff took her off because there was no evidence of brain activity. She had been on a Saturday afternoon outing of ice cream and fun with her aunt and cousin.
    The drunk driver Arturo Lupian had an elevated blood alcohol level of .11 at 2:30 in the afternoon when his vehicle slammed into the stopped SUV in which Amber was riding.

    Samuel Avalos Gallardo is an escaped convict and illegal alien. Driving at three times the legal limit for blood alcohol, he drove in the wrong lane and struck head-on a car driven by 18-year-old Gary Selby, which killed him and severely injured his three passengers. One year later, in 1993, Gallardo was found guilty in the DUI death of Gary Selby and for the serious injury to the other passengers, for which Gallardo was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment. Because of a terrible mistake by the Nevada Department of Corrections, Gallardo was placed in minimum security incarceration despite being a dangerous criminal and someone who could easily escape to Mexico. He did escape after only six months in jail and remains at large. The Selby family still hopes that he will be recaptured to serve out his sentence to give them some peace of mind.

    Five-year-old Felix Leon was another another victim of a hit-and-run illegal alien on Sept. 29. The boy was struck and killed as he rode his bike near his home in Brownsville, Texas. Mexican national Carlos Jaramillo ran over the child with his pick-up and dragged the bike for about 40 yards, where passenger Domingo Acosta Lopez tried to remove the bicycle from the truck's undercarriage but could not. At that point, both Jaramillo and Lopez fled on foot. They were pursued by neighbor Leroy Redford who lives on little Felix's street, who was joined by others from the neighborhood. Lopez was caught then and Jaramillo was found two days later by police later hiding out in a local house, thanks to a tip.
    Both men who were arrested in the crime are illegal aliens who had been deported earlier. Police are investigating their possible connection with other crimes and whether drinking was involved in this hit and run.

    A preliminary hearing will be held Sept. 7 for Luis Oscar Garcia, 24, who was allegedly driving under the influence and without a license in a wreck that killed 18-year-old James F. Rogers Jr. of Jackson about 2 a.m. Saturday, according to a police report. Garcia, who is from Mexico, used an interpreter at the arraignment this morning. He said he has been in the United States for three years working as a carpenter. He said he does not have a green card. Garcia was speeding north on the U.S. 45 Bypass in a 1995 Chevrolet S10 pickup when he went through a red light at the Oil Well Road intersection, colliding with a 1995 Honda Civic driven by Rogers.

    Police have called it one of the most bizarre cases in recent memory: A man living in his married lover's closet is discovered, then fatally beats and strangles her husband in their home. As the murder trial begins in the death of 44-year-old businessman Jeffrey Freeman, prosecutors and defense attorneys each face complications that experts say make the outcome of the case impossible to predict. Convictions could mean life in prison for Freeman's wife, Martha, and the man she said she was having an affair with, Rafael DeJesus Rocha-Perez. Martha Freeman, 41, testified during a preliminary hearing last year that Rocha-Perez had lived for a month in the closet of a spare bedroom in her home. On April 10, 2005, she said, her husband followed the sound of snoring and confronted the woman and her lover. Jeffrey Freeman said he was going for a walk and wanted Rocha-Perez gone by the time he returned, his wife told the court. But instead, Rocha-Perez, 36, waited until Freeman returned, then strangled and beat the man to death. At the time of that preliminary hearing, Martha Freeman had not yet been charged with a crime. Now that she also is a defendant in the case, her statements to authorities "” or even her testimony during the televised preliminary hearing "” cannot be used against Rocha-Perez unless she takes the stand. Attorneys commonly advise murder defendants against taking the stand, and without the wife's words, prosecutors face an uphill battle to prove their case. "It's a very difficult case for the state to prove given that the evidence that (Rocha-Perez) was living there or did anything was largely circumstantial, is my understanding," said lawyer David Raybin, who is not involved in the case. Both defendants have maintained their innocence. During this week's trial, jurors are expected to hear how the wife waited more than 16 hours before calling police to the couple's upscale home in the Mountain View subdivision of south Nashville, near Brentwood. Instead, authorities have said, she ran errands while her husband lay dead on the floor in an upstairs bathroom. Jurors also probably will learn of the evidence police found at the scene, including the contents of the closet: a TV, men's magazines, a Nintendo Game Boy, a foam mattress, food and other items. In recent months, investigators have said they are skeptical of Martha Freeman's account that the man had lived in her closet and suggested the scene had been staged to make it appear as if he had. The investigators have not said why they suspect Freeman would have made up the story. Rocha-Perez, a bricklayer who had an apartment in Murfreesboro, was arrested soon after police were called to the crime scene on April 11. At the time, he was in the country illegally from Mexico. "Martha Freeman has consistently stated she did not kill her husband, and that will be the position of her counsel throughout the trial," McGee said. In e-mails obtained by police after the crime, Martha Freeman said she was taking medicine for mental illness and compared her life to that of a character on "Desperate Housewives." But despite the problems with the prosecution, acquittals in the case are far from assured, legal experts said. Picking jurors will be key in ensuring that the panel isn't unduly swayed by bias against Rocha-Perez's status as an illegal immigrant or Martha Freeman's documented history of marital infidelity. "I'm frankly concerned about his status ... and I'm trusting that the jury is going to hold the state to its very high, very strict burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt in this case and not be biased against my client because of his immigration status," Strianse said. Controlling the jury's passions could be as important for defense attorneys as refuting the evidence, Raybin said. "I have several Hispanic clients, and I think that is a real issue right now," Raybin said. "People have extremely strong emotions about the immigration issue, and it is much deeper than what many people will say. "The sexual relationship between the man and this woman and the immigration thing are much bigger issues than this closet thing is concerned."

    Randy Burris died a hero, saving the lives of a young mother and her baby, as Randy pushed Heather Carlson's baby carriage from the path of a car careening out of control. A resident of Clarke County Georgia, Randy was the father of three children and had struck up a conversation with Heather about her dog. The murderous car was driven by a drunk illegal alien, Ricardo Arriaga-Gutierrez, whose blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit even several hours after the accident. After running Randy Burris down, Arriaga-Gutierrez fled the scene, hid the car in another county and went to a party to establish an alibi. Midway into the case, the prosecutor requested that bail be revoked because of the flight risk to Mexico, and the judge complied. Arriaga-Gutierrez must serve at least 90 percent of his 15-year sentence for vehicular homicide under current state guidelines, plus three years for leaving the scene of the accident and driving without a license. He is legally required to be deported at the time of his release.

    Gary Selby was killed when an illegal alien with a blood alcohol level at three times the legal limit, Samuel Avalos Gallardo, drove over the dividing line and struck head-on the car Gary was driving. The three passengers were all badly injured but recovered. Gary's death occurred in October of 1992 when he was just 18 years old and just a few months after he graduated from high school. He was the older of two sons, and is still terribly missed by his family.
    The drunk illegal alien, Samuel Avalos Gallardo, was arrested at the scene, tried and sentenced to 40 years for the death and injury he caused. Incredibly, the Nevada Department of Corrections wrongly placed Gallardo on a minimum security work detail, from which he escaped just six months into his sentence. Ten years later, this criminal is not behind bars where he belongs, but lives free somewhere. Gallardo's freedom remains a source of pain for Gary Selby's family, who still hope for the capture of the criminal and some justice.

    The sign in this photo reads, "I'm looking for Gonzalo Harrell-Gonza***, illegal alien driver who killed my son. Have you seen him?" The face hidden behind the sign is that of Kathy Inman, who lost her son Dustin when an illegal alien crashed into the Inman's car. Kathy, husband Billy and son Dustin were stopped at a traffic light when a car driven by Harrell-Gonza*** rear-ended their car at 62 miles per hour. Both adults were severely injured and couldn't attend their son's funeral. Kathy was permanently disabled and was put into a wheelchair. The perpetrator, Gonzalo Harrell-Gonza***, escaped from a hospital and was never even arrested. A Gilmer County (Georgia) grand jury indicted Gonza*** on charges of vehicular homicide and serious injury by a vehicle. He remains at large.
    The occasion which brought Kathy Inman out into the streets was the so-called "Immigrant Worker Freedom Ride," a caravan of buses demanding "rights" for illegal aliens. That's the crowd in the photo. Of course, real immigrants, the legal sort, have workplace protections just like the rest of us. Furthermore, illegal foreigners wrapping themselves in the civil rights movement is insulting to the real Freedom Riders of the 1960s, who worked for long-denied political rights for black Americans.

    Border Patrol Agent James Epling died in performing his duties along the Mexican border, apparently drowning in the Colorado River in pursuit of several illegal aliens and was last seen along the shoreline as he followed the foreigners. He was the seventh Border officer to die in the line of duty in Yuma. Agent Epling was just 24 and was the father of three, going on four. His father-in-law is a retired Border Patrol agent from the McAllen, Texas, sector.
    Just before disappearing, Epling had pulled a Chinese woman illegal alien out of the river. Three other Chinese were taken into custody the night of the disappearance, along with one Mexican believed to be the smuggler. Although there has been no evidence of foul play actually found, the smuggler can be charged in the death.

    Adriana Sanchez is a desired target for identity thieves because of her Latino name. The young woman had already passed a credit history check in order to get hired as a Los Angeles police officer, so she was surpised to find that someone in Atlanta had stolen her identity and had rung up $70,000 in debt. Sanchez, who works as a public information officer for the LAPD, felt a personal affront as well as ripped off, remarking, "You feel like you're being violated. . . . She even had my mom's address."
    Investigators familiar with identity theft have noticed that thieves look for similar names to rip off. The LAPD officer's ID was stolen by someone named Adriana Sanchez-Palacios, who was charged in September for fraud and identity theft because the crime victim in this case knew exactly what to do.

    David Lazarus is a familiar name to the readers of the San Francisco Chronicle business pages, and the reporter appears occasionally on television news shows like This Week in Northern California on the local PBS affiliate. As a successful middle class professional, he probably never thought he would become the victim of an illegal alien, but that assumption would have been very wrong indeed. Mr. Lazarus recounts his experience of identity theft by a Jamaican national Derrick Davis, who used Lazarus' social security number to get nine credit cards and several jobs. Lazarus called his troubles a "royal pain," one that "has made my own life miserable." But David Lazarus is lucky because his own reporting skills helped him investigate the case, unlike most of the nearly 700,000 Americans hit by identity theft every year. While Lazarus has the pleasure of seeing the perp behind bars, many victims have to work for years to get their lives straightened out, if they ever do.

    The story of gang-banger Simio, told in the book True Tales from Another Mexico, is instructive to those who wonder about the Mexican gangsters on American streets and how they came to get here. He made the common immigrant pilgrimage from Michoacan to the United States, but Simio did not come here to work, but to rob. Upon arriving in a nondescript Los Angeles suburb, his reaction was, "I saw there were all kinds of chances to steal." He also discovered crack while in the US, which was a good fit with his chosen profession of thief. His normal routine was to rob two houses during the day and one at night which fed his thousand-dollar-a-day drug habit. He returned to Mexico after three months in juvenile detention with exhortations for the homeboys to get more serious about their gangstering. "I woke those boys up," Simio reported. "They were all asleep. They didn't have the urge to rob. They weren't stealing anything." In time, some of those young men would make the journey to America, already trained in thievery, drug use and gang behavior.

She also had to act as a detective to track down the culprit who has filled her life with turmoil and stress. The reporting on this crime is notable for its relentless sympathy for the perpetrator, even when the damage to the victim is obvious for all to see.

    Colorado resident Nancy Law is a victim of identity theft because an illegal alien stole her Social Security number. She is shown with the paperwork necessary to clear up the fraud and get straight with the Internal Revenue Service and other agencies. Nancy began receiving notices from the IRS requesting payment of taxes for those jobs she was doing, like the gig in the Denver tortilla factory. In truth, Nancy Law works as a fifth-grade teacher and has never worked making tortillas, and the notice that she owed taxes was a frightening introduction to the underground world of fraudulent documents among illegal aliens.
    Immigration reform legislation in 1986 required that employers determine that a job applicant be a citizen. As a result, document fraud has skyrocketed, even though fraudulent use of a fake Social Security number is a felony and can bring a prison term of five years.

But the June trial has not been a pretty picture as admitted cop-killer Ramirez pleaded self-defense because he thought Officer Arango would kill him otherwise, saying "if I don't kill him, he's going to kill me." The prosecution contends that Ramirez shot the police officer simply to avoid arrest. The original altercation occurred outside a nightclub, when Arango approached Ramirez, then 19, and his cousin. Ramirez was an illegal alien from Mexico, and possessed a concealed gun. Also injured by Ramirez was nightclub manager David Contreras, who survived being shot in the face.
    Update, June 25, 2003: Bautista Ramirez was found guilty of the murder of Officer Arango, as well as of carrying a concealed weapon and aggravated assault against David Contreras, who was blinded in one eye in the attack.

The jury decided Ramirez should get life in prison (with the possibility of parole) plus 20 years for shooting Contreras and one year for gun possession.

    Angel Maturino Resendez, AKA Angel Resendez, Rafael Ramirez or simply "the Railroad Killer" was one of America's most frightening serial killers because of the random nature of his victims. A railroad hobo, he rode the rails through the central area of America and killed at least nine people as he hopped on and off trains. What is additionally disturbing beyond the brutality of his stabbings and bludgeonings was that he was in police custody several times during his crime spree. But the nonexistent tracking of the INS allowed him to get away with having several identities and use them to keep a step ahead of law enforcement. Resendez was finally apprehended in 1999. The case was so shocking that Michelle Malkin devoted a chapter to it in her book Invasion.

    Sister Helen Chaska was murdered in late summer 2002 by being strangled with her rosary beads "” the beads were found imbedded in her neck. She was also raped, as was another nun who accompanied Sister Helen during walking prayers. Both women were in Klamath Falls, Oregon, doing missionary work when the crimes occurred. Her accused murderer is Maximiliano Esparza, who is in the United States illegally, and was convicted in 1988 of robbery and kidnapping in Los Angeles. He was sentenced to six years in prison, was released in 1992 and was on probation until 1995. By law, this man should have been deported to Mexico after his release in 1992. Instead, the INS allowed him to remain in the United States and commit even more heinous crimes. In this article, Michelle Malkin notes the Esparza crime and other examples of INS standard procedure of "catch and release" in violation of law.

    Oceanside Officer Tony Zeppetella was a rookie cop, who had been in the department just over a year, when he was shot three times and killed in a credit union parking lot by Adrian George Camacho, a Mexican illegal alien with a long criminal record. Officer Zeppetella was married with a six-month-old child. He was born in Whittier and enlisted in the navy after he graduated from high school in 1994. Tony Zeppetella was 27 years old when he was killed. The accused killer had been deported several times, and his criminal record lists drugs, illegal firearms possession and gang activity.

He wrote to immigration officials in February 2002, warning them that America's permissive policies in dealing with criminal aliens were putting citizens' lives at risk. He noted these details about the killing of Angie Leon by her estranged husband: "Mr. Leon was convicted on March 18, 2002, in the District Court in Canyon County for possession of a controlled substance, making him an aggravated felon under INS laws calling for mandatory detention and institution of deportation proceedings. Those deportation proceedings were never instituted even though INS was aware of the case."

By contrast, Ranger Eggle was shot down by Mexican drug dealers who were using Organ Pipe as a route for their smuggling. Only 28 when he was murdered, Eggle was a valedictorian and an Eagle Scout who joined the National Park Service because he loved the outdoors. (Organ Pipe is considered to be the most dangerous of the national park system: 200,000 illegal aliens and 700,000 pounds of drugs were intercepted at the park in 2001.)

    Israel Cebrera Pulido was found guilty of a particularly heinous crime "” brutally murdering Eugenia and Sabato Russo, an elderly couple who owned a popular restaurant in North Hollywood, the Sabatino Italian Bakery. Pullido, described as a Mexican national, had apparently been part of a day-laborer crew that did some floor work at the couple's home. He returned on November 22, 2000, when he proceeded to rob and kill the two in a horrific manner, breaking off a knife blade in the skull of Sabato Russo and caving in Eugenia Russo's head with a wooden closet rod. A juror at the trial said the jury could have found Pulido guilty in five minutes, but examined the defense's arguments for four hours to be fair. In the end Pulido was found guilty of robbery, burglary and multiple murders with special circumstances, and was sentenced to life without parole. This case should be a warning against bringing day laborers into one's home to have some work done cheaply, since the final cost may be very high indeed.

    Armando Garcia is another of the numerous murderers, more than 60 from Los Angeles County alone, taking refuge in Mexico. He shot down LA County deputy sheriff David March in cold blood on April 29, 2002, and then quickly escaped to Mexico. Garcia was a meth dealer who had been deported three times and had attempted murder twice previously. He had sworn to shoot any police officer who tried to arrest him, and he did just that with several shots from a 9mm: David March died a short time later. Teri March, his widow, has been struggling to force the Mexican government to hand over Garcia. But Mexico stubbornly refuses to extradite all but minor criminals because of its objections to capital punishment and life imprisonment.

    For a time Ingmar Guandique was considered a possible suspect in the murder of Chandra Levy, because he had attacked women when they were jogging in Washington's Rock Creek Park where her body was discovered. In fact, he was easy for police to question since he was already in jail, sentenced to 10 years for the violent attacks on two women plus a home burglary. Interestingly, even though there was a media firestorm over the Levy disappearance with a mind-deadening amount of superfluous detail, the mainstream press did not bother to mention that Mr. Guandique entered the country illegally. Like so many others, he benefited from the willingness of the INS and courts to engage in "catch and release," a practice more suitable to fly fishing than immigrant enforcement.

    Maximiliano Esparza is another violent criminal allowed to run loose in the United States with horrific results "” the rape and murder of a nun in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Sister Helen Chaska was found strangled and dead with her rosary beads lodged in her neck. Another nun was raped where the nuns were walking along a bike path. As an illegal alien, Esparza should have been deported in 1992 after serving a prison term for kidnapping and robbery in Los Angeles, however there is no record of the Salvadoran being deported so presumably he was merely released into the community from prison. Esparza was also arrested in 2002 prior to the murders, but was released by the INS in violation of the law which requires that criminal aliens with long rap sheets are supposed to be investigated. One report shows that he used seven different aliases.
    Sentencing Update: In early April 2003, Esparza was sentenced to life in prison without parole. The case was a plea bargain, partially to prevent the necessity for the surviving nun to testify.

    Two young men (both illegal aliens) charged with shooting a pregnant woman as she lay in a vacant lot could face an additional murder charge of killing the woman's fetus.Tracy Owen, 32, was due to give birth any day and may have been in labor when she was killed. Antonio Dejesus Idelfonso, 17, and Eliseo Marcelino-Quintero, 22, told police they killed the woman because they thought they had hit her with their pickup truck and were afraid they would get into trouble. Idelfonso shot Owen and told his roommate after the slaying that the woman was crying for help when the men stopped. Idelfonso told police that he responded, ''Here's your help,'' and shot her five times in the upper body, according to the detective. One of the bullets struck the fetus. ''In my 22 years on the job, I have never seen anyone executed, and I mean executed, because someone thought they had hit the person with a vehicle,'' detective Swisher said. ''It sickens me.'' Swisher said the medical examiner's office told him that Owen was in the late stages of pregnancy and could have given birth at any time. He said there was no indication Owen had been struck by a vehicle. Before the killing the suspects had been shooting at cars in the parking lot of Berkeley Ridge Apartments about a block from the suspects' apartment, Swisher said. After the slaying, they drove to Marcelino-Quintero's ex-girlfriend's apartment, cleaned the gun and fell asleep, he said. Investigators arrested them after a witness told police he had seen them shooting at cars and recognized them. Police then went to their apartment, where a roommate told them they had said they had hit a woman with their pickup and then shot her. Police found them at the ex-girlfriend's apartment, brought them in for an interview, and they admitted the shooting.

    Lee Malvo was evidently the trigger man for the series of shootings in fall of 2002 in the Washington region that killed 10 people and terrorized a huge area for weeks. Young Malvo came to this country with his mother as an illegal alien stowaway, and as such, should have been immediately returned to his native Jamaica according to law. But the INS is often more concerned with saving money on jail costs than protecting the public, so Lee Malvo was released into America to do as he wished. Also, Bill O'Reilly found evidence that a local immigrants' rights group inserted its influence to have Malvo set free rather than be deported. Not that the young man was an obvious candidate to be a serial killer, but with a quarter of federal prisoners being illegal aliens, the problem of alien criminals is serious and often overlooked by sentimental propaganda like, "They only come here to work."

After Seitz's skull was crushed, Jesus Garcia panicked and dumped the body into a truck and drove it a half mile from the scene. For a while, authorities believed the death was a homicide.

What if Seitz had been badly hurt "” would Garcia have aided him? As it is, Garcia is still in serious trouble.

    The case of Juan Manuel Casillas exemplifies everything that's reprehensible about Mexico's refusal to extradite. In 1999 Casillas shot and killed two teenaged cousins on their way to high school because one of the girls, Olivia Munguia, had broken up with him. Casillas easily escaped from Van Nuys into Mexico. Los Angeles County District Attorney' office worked diligently for two years to bring back the killer for trial, even agreeing not to pursue a death penalty. But Mexico refused to cooperate. In frustration and anger, Saul Zavala, the father of the other murdered girl, Jessica Zavala, traveled to Mexico with a gun in his jeans to find his own rough justice.
    Finally, the Mexican government tried Casillas and sentenced him to 60 years in jail, just half of what Saul Zavala had hoped. To add to the insult, the father was not notified of the sentencing and found out the result nearly a month later. Worse, there's no guarantee that Casillas will serve his full sentence: Mexico has released other dangerous criminals after just a couple years in jail. For example, a man who killed a 17-year-old boy in Los Angeles was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to eight years in prison. He served only two years and later returned to the area.

    Killing a horse is certainly insignificant in comparison with many of the crimes noted here. But the senseless cruelty of killing a beautiful animal as some sort of sick fun shouldn't be overlooked either. "This was an especially horrific and wanton killing," according to Sonoma County Prosecutor James Patrick Casey. Gentle Song was a thoroughbred mare that was the beloved pet of a 13-year-old girl in Sonoma County, California. The horse won three races and placed seven times in a racing career of 27 starts, earning $65,000. A couple of illegal alien ranch hands had a few drinks and thought they would have some kicks by running down animals in a field with a car and truck. The mare was struck and died of head injuries. Local animal lovers put together a $20,000 reward to find the culprits, a strategy which succeeded. Liobijildo Guzman Herrera and Noel Guido-Silva, both of Mexico, were arrested June 13. If convicted, the men could spend a year or more in prison and have to pay substantial fines.
    Court update: The two accused horse-killers originally pleaded no contest in September, figuring they would get a slap on the wrist. When they found out that the sentence would be three years in state prison, they decided to withdraw the no contest plea and request a jury trial, which is now set for Feb. 4, 2004.

    Illegal-alien offenders flout U.S. justice system 'Don't ask' policies, easy access to bail, deportation put criminals back on street

    When Carlos Ornelas, owner of Colorado Spring's largest Mexican marketplace, was dragged from his car by four thugs last November, beaten, pistol-whipped and threatened with death unless his family paid an $80,000 ransom, he couldn't have know that one of his accosters was an illegal alien who was supposed to be in Mexico, having been finally deported by the Colorado courts after his fourth known crime.

    Fredy Lopez-Gamez, 26, is still at large following the kidnap, although his brother and two other conspirators were arrested and most of the money was recovered by police. His case, critics say, point to ineffectiveness of the courts in dealing with illegal-alien criminals who have manipulated the U.S. justice system into a revolving door leading from U.S. jails to Mexico and back to U.S. streets.

    Lopez-Gomez, according to court records, was arrested in June on charges of selling $300 worth of cocaine to a police informant. In 2003, he had been charged with kidnapping his estranged wife and intimidating a witness, for which he served 90 days.

    While awaiting trial for the drug charge, Lopez-Gomez was freed on $10,000 bail and turned over to U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Denver detention center. In early September, he was transferred to El Paso, Texas, and from there, deported to Mexico. Ten weeks later, he was back in Colorado Springs, masterminding the kidnap of a wealthy Colorado businessman.

    He was just directing traffic Thursday night about 10:30 p.m. – forcing two lanes of cars into one so Salem, Mass., utility workers could do their jobs on Tremont Street.

    Without warning, a 1992 Honda Accord, driven by a juvenile illegal alien released by Border Patrol officers in Texas 10 days earlier, plowed into the 39-year-old Shea, leaving him with serious injuries.

    The driver, 17-year-old Leila Lopes of Brazil, is facing charges of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and driving negligently.

    Officials said Lopes entered the United States approximately 10 days ago with her father through the Texas border, and was subsequently detained by the U.S. Border Patrol before she arrived in Peabody. Lopes has no family in the community and told police she was staying with friends. She had neither a license nor identification when she was arrested and interviewed by police.

    After striking the officer, Peabody Police said, she drove the vehicle several yards down the street before stopping. Shea was thrown to the sidewalk on impact and was unconscious, bleeding from the head when EMTs arrived.

    Shea is a decorated officer who in the past has been honored for his bravery. "Anyone who has ever had any contact with Mr. Shea comes away with a positive impression. He's a very personable guy,"

    3 illegals beat pregnant woman
    Trio held for Arizona mayhem rampage

    Three illegal immigrants are being held on $50,000 bonds for a vandalism and mayhem rampage that included beating a pregnant woman with a hose.

    The three men, Jose Ramirez-Lopez, 26, Christian Onofre-Caba, 19, and Rosalino Gaspar, 25, were arrested Sunday north of Willcox, Arizona, in connection with assault on a pregnant woman and crime spree that includes charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping and burglary, Carol Capas, spokeswoman for the Cochise County Sheriff's Department, told the Arizona Range News.

    Police said the men smashed windows in one home, roamed the area making noise and acts of vandalism. They are also suspected of attacking a man with a small wooden bat and a knife.

    They reportedly entered a home and assaulted a woman who was eight-months pregnant by repeatedly striking her with a rubber hose, before chasing a second man back to the bedroom and assaulting him with fists and a knife.

    Illegal alien accused of triple homicide
    Pennsylvania suspect says he'd been experiencing 'blackouts'

    An illegal alien previously arrested on a domestic dispute but not deported is accused of shooting dead three men outside a bar in Altoona, Pa., after telling police he had been experiencing blackouts.

    Miguell A. Padilla, 25, called police after the shooting and said he "believed he had hurt somebody but had been having blackouts," the Blair Country district attorney said yesterday.

    He was caught shortly after Sunday's shooting and charged with three counts each of criminal homicide, aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person, as well as one count of illegal possession of a handgun. He was ordered held without bail.

    The shooting occurred just before 2 a.m. Sunday after Padilla and two companions tried to enter the bar in the United Veterans Association Club in downtown Altoona, a 69-year-old institution known as a regular site for wedding receptions and reunions.

    After Padilla was told the bar was members-only – a sign saying just that was posted in the window – he got into an argument, first, with the club's doorman, Frederick Rickabaugh, 58, and then with the club's owner, Alfred Mignogna, 61, both of Altoona. Padilla returned to his car, came back with a handgun and shot Rickabaugh and then Mignogna, police said.

    A year ago, Altoona Police arrested Padilla during a domestic dispute and Cooper said the department discovered that he was an illegal immigrant from Mexico. Cooper said he didn't know why Padilla wasn't deported after that.

    Cops say suspect in Colorado shooting fled to Mexico

    Police have a suspect in the shooting death of a turkey hunter in Colorado, but they say the man, an illegal alien, has fled to Mexico.

    Qwest Communications executive Jeff Garrett was fatally shot while hunting with a shotgun May 14.

    "We have recovered the weapon, we have a witness, and we have a suspect," said the Garfield County Sheriff.

    Investigators said a co-worker of the suspect witnessed the shooting, and told them that the suspect knew what he had done before leaving the country. The co-worker reportedly told investigators that he was with the suspect when they heard turkey calls coming from heavy brush near the ranch perimeter and that the suspect fired in the direction of the calls, thinking they came from a turkey.

    Abuses Alleged During Immigration Raid

    By Kari Lydersen

    Demonstrators march outside the Chicago offices of Immigration and Custom Enforcement after a recent raid at a meatpacking plant in Illinois.
    Tags activism immigration Share Digg del.icio.us Reddit Newsvine Seventeen immigrants detained for several weeks after an immigration raid at a candy packaging company in the Chicago suburbs were strip-searched, denied medical attention, roughly handcuffed, coerced to sign deportation papers they did not fully understand, and charged up to $23,000 for bond, according to some of the detainees and their advocates. This treatment underscores a trend in the accelerating number of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids on workplaces nationwide"”unnecessarily rough treatment of detainees that makes not only the threat of deportation, but detention itself a source of fear and anxiety.

    On the morning of Feb. 27, ICE agents swept into the Cano Packaging Corporation in Arlington Heights, Ill., a mostly middle class, white suburb 25 miles from Chicago. The agents arrested the undocumented immigrants who had been hired by a temporary staffing agency to work at Cano. The nine men and eight women were then bused to a jail, which also serves as a regional immigration detention facility.

    Maria de Carmen Santana says she was invasively strip-searched, and told the process was a search for hidden drugs. She was handcuffed so tightly that it left marks on her wrists, she says, and she was unable to get pain medication for severe tendonitis in her ankle.

    "It was disgusting how we were treated,"ť Santana, 46, says in Spanish. "We aren't murderers. We aren't drug addicts. Our only crime is being here to work without papers."ť

    One woman alleges she was denied medical help while vomiting, and another when suffering an intense migraine. An ailing diabetic man was forced to do exercises as punishment for not making his bed. Detainees say the facility's meal portions left them extremely hungry, and a guard threw out fruit that detainee Leonel Trujillo had stashed in his cell.

    ICE spokeswoman Gail Montenegro says that "ICE treats all detainees with the utmost respect and according to all detention standards. If anyone feels they have been treated unjustly, we urge them to file a complaint."ť

    Three detained Cano workers signed papers agreeing to "voluntary"ť deportation. Tim Bell, executive director of the Chicago Workers' Collaborative, which has been developing a rapid-response network to immigration raids, says it is still unclear whether the orders, which were in English and not adequately explained to the Latino immigrants, were "removal orders,"ť which would mean they could be charged with a felony if they re-enter the country within a set number of years. It is also possible they agreed to "voluntary departure,"ť in which case they would not be subject to the re-entry "bars"ť which make it a felony to re-enter the U.S. after one has been deported. (Montenegro could not elaborate on specific cases.)

    "A lot of them don't realize what they're signing. ICE doesn't explain it to them, and there's a lot of pressure on them the whole time to sign,"ť says Bell. "One of them was a diabetic who wasn't getting his insulin. He basically had to sign it to save his life."ť

    The 14 other workers were given dates with an immigration judge. Santana was ordered by a judge to leave the country by January 2008; she is appealing. "But my case will be difficult because I don't have a U.S. citizen child or husband here,"ť she says.

    Since the workers were hired by the Georgia-based temporary agency Staffing Concepts International (SCI), Cano, which paid them about $8 an hour, is likely not liable for hiring undocumented immigrants. A Cano spokesman declined to comment, and a call to SCI was not returned.

    Bell says the Workers' Collaborative is filing a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor because SCI was apparently not licensed to work as a day labor contractor in Illinois; and he says a lawsuit is being filed in civil court regarding alleged employment violations on SCI's part. A civil rights lawsuit regarding ICE's allegedly abusive treatment of immigrants is also being considered.

    The Cano raid was followed about a month later by the arrest of more than 60 workers hired to clean a Cargill pork packing plant in Beardstown, Ill., a small town southwest of Chicago. Immigrant rights advocates denounced the timing of the raid"”four days before Easter"”and say the Beardstown workers also suffered abuses in detention.

    In March, the National Immigration Project called for a moratorium on workplace raids and described recent ICE raids in Massachusetts, Iowa, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Nebraska, Minnesota and other states as "overzealous"ť and "military-style."ť

    On April 6, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order barring the government from deporting 110 of the 360 immigrants detained in a March 6 raid on a military equipment plan in New Bedford, Mass. The judge argued that ICE agents coerced the immigrants into waiving their right to appeal deportation orders.

    "It seems like a way of scaring people about not only getting raided, but about detention,"ť says Bell. "The government is using terror tactics on this community."ť

    Immigration Raids Single Out Hispanics, Lawsuit Says

    12/21/07

    A federal lawsuit filed yesterday charges that agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement unlawfully force their way into the homes of Hispanic families in the New York area without court warrants or other legal justification, sometimes pushing down doors in the middle of the night, in search of people who do not live there.

    The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court in Manhattan as a class action, accuses the immigration agency of conducting the raids in violation of the Fourth Amendment's protection from unreasonable searches, harming citizens and legal residents of the United States as well as foreigners here illegally.

    The 15 plaintiffs (all but one are residents of Suffolk County and seven of them are United States citizens) describe abusive predawn raids on their homes this year by armed immigration agents. They seek an order prohibiting I.C.E. from conducting home raids until the agency develops clear guidelines to end unlawful entries, and unspecified damages.

    The city's immigrant community was rocked by raids.

    Published: December 19, 2007

    La migra made its presence felt in Santa Fe this year.

    As Congress and the president deadlocked over immigration reform, federal immigration agents"”known in Spanish simply as la migra"”descended on Santa Fe in several high-profile enforcement sweeps.

    According to figures provided by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), as of September, agents had arrested 601 undocumented immigrants. But that figure includes all of the New Mexico arrests as well as those in El Paso; both areas are covered by the same Fugitive Operations Team based in Albuquerque.

    ICE spokeswoman Leticia Zamarripa tells SFR she can't provide New Mexico or Santa Fe with specific totals.

    The ICE raids and subsequent deportations split families and caused a general panic that still lingers in the city's immigrant community.

    "Members of our community are still feeling extremely vulnerable and afraid of being deported and separated from their loved ones,"ť Marcela Diaz, director of Santa Fe-based immigrant rights group Somos Un Pueblo Unido, says.

    Another 11 undocumented immigrants were arrested in Santa Fe in November, capping a busy year for federal immigration agents.
    While ICE agents made frequent visits to Santa Fe throughout 2007, the most high-profile case came during the weeklong roundup that began on Feb. 26. According to ICE, the effort was focused on apprehending so-called "immigrant absconders,"ť mostly those who had failed to appear at immigration hearings. Following the raids that targeted south-side apartments and mobile-home parks, Santa Fe Mayor David Coss and other local officials voiced opposition to using city resources to assist with the enforcement of federal immigration law [Outtakes, March 7: "After the Raids"ť].

    For most of the year, the city's Immigration Committee worked to craft an updated police policy that would limit local law enforcement's cooperation with federal agents [Cover story, July 18: "Turf Talk"ť].

    Carla Lopez, a city staff liaison to the committee, tells SFR she expects Santa Fe Chief of Police Eric Johnson to sign off on a final draft of the new policy by the beginning of next year.

    University of Houston Law Center professor Michael Olivas, an immigration law expert and Santa Fe native, argues that cities like Santa Fe have become bigger targets for raids as a direct result of resisting a closer partnership with ICE.

    "I think they're doing this to punish the municipalities that are clearly unable or unwilling to serve as enforcement agents,"ť Olivas says. He calls ICE's selective enforcement "a cynical attempt to divert attention"ť from the more mundane failure to process passports and H1B visas in a timely fashion.

    A separate flashpoint occurred this year when reports of poor treatment surfaced in April at Albuquerque's Regional Correctional Center, where undocumented immigrants arrested by ICE were being held [Outtakes, April 18: "Detention Questions"ť].

    "I saw conditions that were absolutely deplorable,"ť US District Court Chief Judge Martha Vázquez recalls. She describes a scene in which a lack of medical care resulted in at least one death and a miscarriage, in addition
    to severe overcrowding, insufficient food and detainees unable, for months, to learn of their status.

    "They were being detained, but they weren't being charged with a criminal offense and they weren't being deported. Neither did they have access to attorneys,"ť she says. "This is one of the worse things I've ever seen."ť

    Vázquez visited the facility unannounced to see the conditions for herself on June 1, and subsequently had lunch on site with Cornell Companies CEO James Hyman, the lockup's private operator, to relay her concerns.

    In July, ICE relocated all of its Albuquerque detainees to other facilities in the face of scrutiny by Vázquez and others. But in late November, ICE announced that it is considering housing detainees once again at the facility.

    Vázquez tells SFR she's been regularly advised of changes made at the facility by Cornell and "definitely it's better."ť But she promises to continue looking over their shoulder next year.

    Pam Kennedy, an Albuquerque-based immigration attorney with many clients in Santa Fe, offers the following prediction for 2008: "I think you'll continue to see the presence of ICE agents."ť

    Somos' Diaz also thinks there will be more raids, but no more oversight.

    "There is definitely a sense in the community that ICE is accountable to nothing or no one,"ť she says.
