The big guys in Washington, DC tells the INS/ICE what they and where they can get illegals.If it's not politically correct to raid a business or do city sweeps then DC tells INS/ICE not to do it. If it's going to cause the illegals to become UPSET then DC says "Leave them alone". If it's going to piss off city officials then DC says "Leave them alone, they're not hurting anybody". Truth is the BIG GS want the hispanic vote because they are becoming the MAJORITY!We, the USA, spend more per year on benefits,free medical care,education,housing,social security benefis(that we are paying into and they are NOT,welfare and MUCH,MUCH more for the ILLEGALS than we spend on the war in Irac! That's documented but the public will never see those figures.So don't blame the INS/ICE or Border Patrol, blame our elected officials, they all ALL the shots!
