I do understand that many illegal immigrants work hard, however the law should not be ignored. Individuals should be asked if they are a legally in the USA at the time of any arrest. I'm really tired of the finger pointing blaming the feds, rather than standing and doing what is right for our sovereignty. Who are we protecting if we don't ask...individuals here illegally or people who make big money off of slave labor? We are not protecting the citizens and legal residents of the nation! This is frustrating! If we have labor needs we need a legal method of obtaining employees, this includes immigration! Nonetheless, we are at war with a determined terrorist enemy, namely Al Qaeda, and we are not verifying who is coming in the country. Are we asking for a disaster?
