Take one bad story and then use it to compare all illegals..nice one
Sheriff Larry Spence of Willacy County spoke to MailOnline after murder of off-duty Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega Jr. who was allegedly gunned down by two illegal immigrants who had been deported six times
Sheriff Spence said ranchers had reported illegal immigrants walking through the brush in single file, armed with rifles in military fatigues
Spence said he used to not show a weapon but now he has 'two or maybe three' because of the increasing 'criminal element'
He added: 'It’s not like it was years ago when people were just looking for a job or something to eat'
MailOnline also spoke to the woman who reported Javier's alleged killers to the police. She now fears she could be killed by the cartels

derp I think I meant to say "ancedotal evidence".. typo I guess.
but my point more or less is that if you want to have any serious discussions on tightening illegal immigration, its probably best to do it in such a way that it is "party-platform neutral" as in it solves issues on both party's agenda's.
it's just convientent to give ICE and BATF (along with other agencies) the ability to do their jobs without partisan roadblocks in the form of regulation, a lack of funding for key tasks, a lack of leadership, interference by state and local governments.
the convience comes because there are similar problems faced by either side.
by secretary of state's office I meant DMV btw... but I like your idea too.

Are you brain dead, or did you even look at his thread?
He creates a thread with, and I quote "God damn racist cops, assuming the black guys are up to no good, that they are freeloading..etc . Republican love these idiots because they are making a difference.."
There, I even made bold the part that makes him a Hypocrite to make it nice and easy for you.
