Funny statement since most of the Big Money into Obama's slush fund came
from "BIG BUSINESS" Think the "hope and change" Obama Care promised would
take the strain off of them, instead the idiot in the White House threw them
under the bus. I see a trend, do you?
You can lead them to LINUX
but you can't make them THINK !
But you're the guy who quotes fictional chain e-mails as if they were
encyclopedia-grade factual, so your fevered interpretation of current
affairs isn't exactly what anyone with a clue would want to rely on.
Hey, genius, care to explain how come the Obama adminstration has expanded
what was a Bush admin pilot program to identify and deport illegals if "the
fool in the White House" doesn't care about illegal immigration?
D.C. to help U.S. identify illegal immigrants in jail
Federal program checks fingerprints of local crime suspects

D.C. police will be the next department to take part in a federal program
whose ultimate aim is to check the immigration status of every person booked
into a local jail, homeland security officials announced Thursday.
The program, known as Secure Communities, matches inmates' fingerprints
against a federal database so that federal authorities can identify and
possibly remove deportable illegal immigrants before they are released from
Similar checks are done at all 1,200 federal and state prisons. But
authorities have lacked the ability to do them across the nation's 3,100
The Bush administration launched the program as a pilot project in October
2008, and it is being expanded under President Obama as part of an effort to
focus enforcement on illegal immigrants who commit crimes, rather than those
who otherwise obey the law.
"We're excited," said Kevin Palmer, a D.C. police spokesman. "It's going to
enable our officers to have real-time information about the individuals they
have in custody and to help facilitate the removal of dangerous felons from
Fairfax County is one of 95 jurisdictions that participate in Secure
Communities, which differs from a national program that deputizes local
police to question suspects about their immigration status. Several county
police departments in Northern Virginia and Maryland participate in that
Similarly, Montgomery County police provide immigration authorities with the
name of anyone arrested for a violent crime or handgun violation.
The checks conducted through Secure Communities are automatic. Fingerprints
of suspects arrested by local authorities, already run through the FBI's
criminal database, are also matched against an immigration database
maintained by the Department of Homeland Security. The system does not flag
illegal immigrants who have not been fingerprinted.
Homeland Security officials announced Thursday that the program had
identified in its first year more than 111,000 criminal illegal immigrants
in local custody. More than 11,000 were convicted of serious crimes such as
murder, rape, and kidnapping. About 1,900 of those immigrants have been
removed from the United States.
Richard Rocha, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the
agency planned to remove the remainder after they have completed their
Immigrant advocates have expressed concern that Secure Communities will
ensnare many illegal immigrants who are convicted only of minor crimes or of
nothing at all.
No matter ~who~ said this and at what time, I think our politicians
ought to take up this attitude and let the people who don't like our
way of life take a hike. If they don't like us why bother coming over
and bombing us and raising hell in our country. Stay home and bomb
your own asses. The illegals need to get out too. they're taking jobs
Americans need now even more. I suppose I'll get flamed for this but
who cares...bring it on.
