    Portland Tribune- Immigration Anxiety hits home

    Great article, but most of all, read the comments section in the link. So many good comments. Also, love the mention of all the "out-of-state" calls that Potter received about his siding with the illegals.

    Immigration anxiety hits home, stays hot
    Mayor blasts feds’ action, and plenty blast mayor; more raids likely

    By Jennifer Anderson

    The Portland Tribune, Jun 15, 2007 (45 Reader comments)

    Immigration raids this week on the Fresh Del Monte produce processing plant and its staffing facility ended in the arrests of 167 people, and observers say more such raids are likely.

    Sarah Toor / Portland Tribune
    Three days after federal immigration officials swooped down on two North Portland facilities and arrested 167 people, emotions in Portland were still raw and the policy debate still feisty.

    Much of the reaction was spurred by Mayor Tom Potter’s response to the raids, which he condemned in favor of a more comprehensive federal solution to immigration issues.

    [color=blue]Potter’s office received about 800 e-mails and phone calls immediately after his statement on the raid was released. Many seemed to have been fueled by national talk radio, Potter spokesman John Doussard said, but others came from Oregonians who thought Portland’s mayor had crossed the line.

    It is sort of funny though. It sounds like the fence is not far off.

    Lets see them flee then!

    Oh, I know MW, that line got my husband and I both!!! Needed a Zantac after that.

    Yes, victims they are when they drive with no insurance and crash into Americans, who them have to foot that bill, and they are victims when the illegal alien mother of four steps foot into the WIC office to pick up her vouchers for free stuff.

    How about that free education, free breakfasts and lunches served to their children? Poor victims they are, poor, poor illegal alien vicitms. They must feel so vicitmized!!!!!

    When will all of this whining about the illegals being the "victims" stop?

    According to my dictionary a "Victim" is: Person against whom a crime is committed. Person who is tricked or swindled.

    So, I suppose the illegals have been tricked and swindled into crossing into this country, stealing SS #'s and full identities to not only steal jobs from American citizens but also to commit a laundry list of other crimes as well? They are having crimes committed against them as our laws are enforced, they are finally being held accountable for everything they were tricked and swindled into doing, and we are demanding that our government represent, and restore our country to, us?

    Where does this kind of twisted logic come from that they are the victims? I'm fairly certain it's the other way around.............
