Cecil Bothwell is an idiot. I'll stand with Dr. Mumpower on this issue. Illegals should be rounded up and deported, not rewarded and/or ignored for breaking the law.

I'll stand with Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan and Asheville Police Chief Bill Hogan on this one. I believe they have a lot clearer ideas about law enforcement than the amateur Mumpower.

Duncan and Hogan have affirmed my suggestion that communities where local law enforcement officers DO NOT enforce federal immigration law are safer for EVERYONE.

You can have you idiot biases, I'll rest my opinions on the data collected by police across the country, thanks.

That is a bunch of crap. Illegals are breaking the law simply by being here and are responsible for many of the other crimes being committed, at least in this area. Giving them safe haven will just embolden them. They are cutting the throats of tradesmen all over WNC by working for next to nothing, with no ss#'s, no insurance, no taxes, etc. I will do nothing to help them and continue to pitch a big public fit against those who do.

Look at our court dockets. Mexicans are comitting: DUIs, driving with no driving permit, NO Insurance, Domestic Violence, drug trafficing, and coming to a court room in jackson county... Murder. I know American citizen commit these crimes too but when I read the paper and see the defendant ordered to "not have contact with M13 gang members" I have a big problem. That is why I have a weapons permit and uninsured motorist endorsements. Long live the Motor City Mad Man.

The Illegal alien invaders kill between 15 to 25 Americans each and every day.

More Americans are killed per day by the Illegal alien invaders than are killed in the war per day.

Because somehow, someone is making a lot of money by letting them sneak in and stay here. I don't get it either but I'm afraid the problem is going to get much worse long before it gets better.

it is a federal problem. not local police but the government does not do their job. wonder why??? they make me sick. they have american troops that died for this 'war' and here they have free loaders that use their taxes while they die. the hispanic men (illegals) don't serve but they can fornicate and pop out burritos for the soldiers to support with their taxes. the government is anti american. like nam, they kill their own.

I believe the news reports:

Scroll down a couple of pages. The person wanted for the recent shooting in Cashiers is an illegal alien. Now tell me again, how is NOT enforcing the immigration laws making me safer? You look at the "data", I'll look at the facts.
