tell me, can you provide any sources or proof that his is happening in Colorado? I've heard all kinds of people talk about illegals cheating the judicial system but I truthfully can't find any proof of it beyond people just saying other people are doing it.
What are we to think? Last February, a Wheat Ridge, Colorado man named Robert Wallace, saw two men hooking his flatbed trailer up to their truck in his driveway beside his house. He grabbed his gun and ran out to stop them. They didn't stop, and according to Mr. Wallace tried to run him down on their way off his property. He shot twice, hitting one man in the face. Shortly thereafter one perpetrator dropped his wounded friend off at a hospital and disappeared.
It is said that the wheels of justice grind slow, but very fine. So far the district attorney has filed 12 felony counts against Mr. Wallace including 4 counts of attempted murder (don't worry, it's the New Math) and as of July 14th, no charges have been filed against the two admitted thieves Damacio Torres and Alvaro Cardona . They are suspected of being in the country illegally, and have rap sheets that include public fighting and aggravated motor vehicle theft.
The immigration issue took center stage in the Colorado governor's race after reports that Democratic candidate Bill Ritter approved plea deals allowing legal and illegal aliens to avoid deportation during his tenure as Denver district attorney.
From 1998 to 2004, Mr. Ritter oversaw plea bargains in 152 cases that permitted defendants to plead guilty to agricultural trespass instead of more serious charges, including assault, drug trafficking and vehicle theft, that carry a penalty of mandatory deportation, according to court documents.
Mr. Ritter, who served as district attorney from June 1993 to January 2005, defended his record, saying many of the cases had evidentiary or witness problems that prevented a successful prosecution on the original charges. The lesser charge was "a tool in the toolbox to get a felony conviction and permanent mark on somebody's record," said his spokesman, Evan Dreyer, adding that the cases represented less than 1 percent of the 38,000 handled by the office from 1998 to 2004.
On April 2, 2010, Mark Potok of the SPLC expressed concern that hot rhetoric and disinformation is causing a dangerous increase in paranoia and confrontation within the political landscape. There is the concern that overheated speech of pundits and politicians is inflaming hate groups that may pose a viable threat. Potok specifically singled out Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Congressman Steve King, and commentators Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs as failing their moral responsibility for what Potok describes as "inflammatory effects of their rhetoric on hate group violence
Needless to say, both events were almost exclusively comprised of our people, varying only by age, socio-economic status and temperament. Following the Morristown Tea Party, we relaxed with a few drinks and light conversation at a nearby pub. It is crucial that we network at – to borrow Kevin McDonald’s phrase – implicitly white activities such as Tea Parties and Euro festivals to bring the message of hope to our people.

Before some genius says that this is necessary or they're heroes or something, it's important to note that there were people on this list who weren't illegal who had their information sent to various people without their consent, which kind of defeats the purpose of the list. It means they weren't well researched enough and it's really just whatever hispanic name they could find.
I'm personally sickened by this. I thought we were "innocent until proven guilty"?
apparently, we're guilty until proven mexican.
stay classy, 1070 supporters

by the way, wouldn't you say it's hypocritical that the only way they thought they could get rid of illegals is...illegal?
It has gotten so bad here in Colorado that U.S. citizens are being prosecuted for defending themselves from the criminal activities of illegals, while the illegals walk away.
