Resentment builds on illegal immigration

Success - Article sent! close

Regarding the Border Patrol Twitter feed: "baby-sitting." Whatever you want to call it, I don't believe it's racist.

I do believe the term "immigrant advocates" is a misnomer. So often the word immigrant is used by the news media when illegal immigrant is more accurate.

The softer our enforcers are on the illegal situation, the more frustration and resentment builds, and what's next?

Is profiling becoming more credible?

The Border Patrol knows whereof it speaks. We already have "sanctuary cities" up here. The state representatives tell me it's up to the federal enforcers. Why do they keep dancing around this issue?
