Hispanics: How Dare You Enforce The Law!

Hispanic group: We feel slighted

All together now...AWWWWW!
Some advocates for Cobb County’s fast-growing Latino population are upset that county authorities did not consult them about a plan to let the sheriff speed up the deportation of certain illegal immigrants who have committed crimes.

Members of the Cobb Hispanic/Latino Initiative said they learned only from news reports that the county commissioners planned to vote on the deportation plan. The committee was created in 2004 by Sam Olens, chairman of the Cobb County Board of Commissioners, and Georgia Power Region Manager David Connell, who was then incoming chairman of the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s like we don’t count,” said Patricia Henao, director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s community outreach center in Cobb. “You guys ignored us. That’s how I feel.”

Zayra Alicia Fosse, state director of the League of United Latin American Citizens, also took issue with the commissioners during an initiative meeting Monday.”To see us completely ignored … this is mind-boggling,” she said.

The county commissioners endorsed a plan Oct. 24 that would let the sheriff’s department work more closely with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The plan would help sheriff’s deputies identify illegal immigrants in the county jail who have committed crimes. Immigration authorities would deport an immigrant after a federal court authorizes the removal and after the immigrant completes his or her local sentence. *snip*

“Jerry Gonzalez, a member of the Cobb Latino initiative and executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials said the controversy “has set us back tremendously.”
One of the most extraordinary things in this debate is how upfront Hispanics are about not wanting the law enforced. It's not a secret, they don't hide it. But see, that's how things are done where?

Mexico, so if you want to live in Mexican splendor you are possibly the luckiest person on the planet. Hop into your trusty Vato-mobile and head south, eventually people will demand bribes from you, you are home. Enjoy!

As to "setting us back tremendously?" WTF? These people need to be sling-shotted out of this country on the first jumbo slingshot we can build. Here's a visual aid...

Think this could be added to the border appropriations bill?
