Mexican Consulate says police profiled illegal immigrants

DALLAS - A spokesman for the Mexican Consulate of Dallas says police in North and East Texas profiled illegal immigrants and exceeded their authority in checking the immigrants' residency status. Consulate officials blamed the increased scrutiny on "Operation Wrangler," a plan announced last week by Gov. Rick Perry to crack down on drug and human smuggling along the Mexican border with coordinated law enforcement throughout the state. Eduardo Rea Falcon, a Consulate spokesman, said Mexican officials believe 33 of 47 men, women and children held over the weekend at a federal immigration center in Dallas were profiled by police.
Um, good?

More profiling please, faster -- faster! Chop Chop!

I love these arguments because they're so poorly framed. An illegal immigrant has no fundamental right to be here, so can they really be profiled? Is that even possible? To me it always comes back to citizenship, and if ya ain't, don't expect the rights that only come to citizens.

Your civil rights are conveniently located back in your home country.

Go get'em!
