    The numbers seem quite small to such a big problem but it's a start.

    Well, its good news...not great new, but good.:scrutiny:

    At least they are paying attention to some of the nastier "undocumented workers" who just came here "for a better life":banghead:

    Americans were a bit stunned to see how many turned out for the "demonstrations." They are going to be even more stunned--and maybe scared--when they begin to realize just how pervasive illegal immigration really is.

    But how many were deported? Typical thing is for these special immigration ops is to arrest a bunch of illegals and let 'em go, with a promise to head to court later... thus that means 2000+ illegals are still on street!

    Wouldn't really matter if headline was "ICE arrests 20,000,000 illegals"... you need to ask: HOW MANY WERE DEPORTED?

    About 1/3rd down the article it says
    You also must remember it takes more than 10 mins to deport someone. And often the media reports stories and never follows up on them. So the negative assumption is nothing was done.

    Catch and release should only be for trout.

    55 illegals were busted today doing construction inside a secure area at Dulles Airport. At least one had a tarmac access badge. No news on what has been done with them.

    Call me jaded, but does anyone find it suspicious that for 6 years or so the immigration problem has been ignored but now that Bush and the Senate are pushing their amnesty bill we're starting to see a little - *little* - bit of law enforcement?:scrutiny:

    When Bush begins to deal openly and honestly with the "You owe me, Gringo!" attitude that prevails among illegal aliens and condemns it overtly, I'll start to believe that he is for real about this issue. Right now I think it's just a dog & pony show, with more dog than pony.

    Wait a minute...From the article:
    Hmmm. Are we missing a certain oddly favored country here, in representation, or was it just what the reporter happened to note?

    If they arrest 2,000 and deport 800, that is a start. Most importantly, the ones that go to jail will offer a good negative example for those that might consider leaving on their own.

    On a related note, has anybody noticed how rancid Carlos Mencia is on the subject? He is funny in some ways, but after his repeated pro-illegal-invasion stance, I have been boycotting his cable show.

    Sheesh, you guys are all optomists.

    The proper view of this is it is just another government agency fund raiser.

    The only reason no one was killed was an aversion to violating the rights of minorities (illegals).

    Religious people (cults), gun nuts and white people (racists) are fair game for violation of rights by a "well meaning" government.

    Truthfully, it's just another variation of BOHICA.

    Very true; .gov has already made up its mind who the enemy is.

    I love it! espescially out of the liberal stronghold of taxechusetts!


    Still just a drop in the bucket, but if we could pull that off every day in all major citys, that would be something.

    When they shutter, permanently, two thousand businesses in the rent-a-peon game we might have something.

    You could probably arrest more illegals than that just by standing on US 19 for an afternoon and arresting everyone that drove by with a truck full of lawn mowing equipment and men in the back. 2000 would be impressive if it happened at one walmart or one farm, but natiowide it is a complete joke.

    Arresting 2000 illegals a day and jailing them for life might begin to make a dent after about 10-15 years. We would catch up to the 20 million currently in the country after approximately 30 years- assuming no more entered the country during those 30 years. 2000 every couple of months is a sad joke, especially if none are deported or prisoned for a lengthy period of time.

    Any word on the brick mailing campaign? Last I heard it was at 10,000. Did anyone send any bricks/cinderblocks to el presidente?

    its a start but more than likly, deporting them back only means a delay in them returning for a second helping...under a new name...with different fake IDs.

    they know the US is one big buffet tabel and theres more than enough crooks that are willing to cater to them.therein lies the problem.

    Pure eyewash. Could have been done 9-12-2001 but wasn't. Now that congress has been forced to address the issue and the president has been forced to act like he wants to do something, we are treated to a shadow puppet show.

    These arrests would not have happened if Bush had not been forced to act. Nothing will come of the farce. The only effect will be to convince a very small sliver of voters that Bush is getting tough on illegal immigration.

    Symbolism worth of Bill Clinton.

    TJ Bonner (Border Patrol) was on the radio last night. He made clear there is only one effective way of dealing with the illegal immigration problem: GO AFTER THE EMPLOYERS. HARD.

    The grim reality is that at least half of Congress is trying to do the opposite by legitimizing illegal aliens and their work and stripping all possible penalties from their employers.
