Just To State The Obvious...

ICE Arrests About 2,000 Illegal Immigrants

A swarm of federal immigration agents sped silently, headlights off, down a Boston side street early Wednesday and surrounded an apartment house.

"Police! Policia! Police!" yelled Daniel Monico, a deportation officer, holding his badge to a window where someone had pulled back the curtain. "Open the door!"

Moments later, agents led a dazed-looking Jose Ferreira Da Silva, 35, out in handcuffs. The Brazilian had been arrested in 2002 and deported, but had slipped back into the country. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.

In a blitz that began May 26, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested nearly 2,100 illegal immigrants across the country. Officials said the raids are aimed at child molesters, gang members and other violent criminals, as well as people like Da Silva who sneaked back into the country after a judge threw them out.

The crackdown is called Operation Return to Sender.

"This sends a message," said Monico, standing outside the gray Victorian apartment where Da Silva had been hiding. "When we deport you, we're serious."
Coupla things, if the president had done this 5-6 years ago we could talk now, but by doing it now he makes it clear just how much contempt he holds us in.

Let me break it down for you, he thinks you're so stupid that if he allows a couple of showy arrests conservatives will fall all over themselves approving the president's bone-headed amnesty...

Does he really think we're that dumb?

Also, this cracked me up...
"This sends a message," said Monico, standing outside the gray Victorian apartment where Da Silva had been hiding. "When we deport you, we're serious."
I believe I've mentioned my feelings about the deportation joke before.

***UPDATE***

Well, this is timely!
Issue: Deportation isn't enough

Deported criminals return to the U.S. easily and commit more crimes.

One in five foreign-born inmates in Colorado prisons tagged for deportation as of May 2005 had been ordered deported before, a Rocky Mountain News analysis of prison and immigration records found.
