As well as a State offense. A murder committed inside the political boundaries of a state, when not on federally administered land / tribal grounds and do not invovle a foreign national, is state jurisdiction, not federal (unless there is a crossing of state lines).

While I was an LEO in AZ, I was able to enforce this.

Yes - you enforced state law, not federal - Arizona Revised Statutes - Chapter 11 - Homicide

You, nor the PA attorney for the state, enforced Federal law. You arent empowered to, and its outside of your jurisdiction.

Drug trafficking was the same. Same as crossing state lines with items. Same as counterfeiting.

Right - Arizona RevisedStatutes Chapter 34 - Drug Offense Again you are enforcing State law not federal. As we all know possession of Marijuana less than 35g is a misdameanor. Possession of more than 35g or other illegal drugs is a felony. If you have a large quantity alone, or bundeled with intent to distribute, its still a state charge unless there is a joint task force or its refered over to the DEA / FBI.

You arent enforcing Federal law.

Now, was a lot of these matters turned over to the Federal departments? Yes. But, I investigated them and actually made arrests on one instance of counterfeiting.

Working at the request of another agency bestows their authority to you. Making an arrest on any warrant, regardless if its state, local or federal, is not restricted.

You can make an arrest based off your investigation at the state level, and turn it over to the feds who then will use Federal Statutes. Its as simple as the Police / PA cedeing jurisdiction.

Ok, I see what you are getting at. I stand corrected, sort of.

But, for further anecdotal stories of ICE, PMs are needed.

Undocumented women… OH you mean illegal aliens. While this happens all the time all over. This illegal alien probably had better care in the police station than on the street where she would of had it. And you said forced to give birth. No they aren’t forced to give birth, it was their time to give birth. Shackled? What was she going to do anyway? Women giving birth don’t have their hands in there to help out, all she had to do was push. It was good she was shackled, that way she didn‘t get in the way of the birthing process. By the way, could you post a video of this?

Your Opinion is disgusting
and do not show any knowledge of Childbirth!

But i am really scared about many Statements here too,
something must be wrong with all the People who give Stars to someone
who wrote something absolute inhuman!

Many of the "Illegals" do not enjoy their Time in the US
or came because of their free will
but many are forced to do so because of the aggressive US-Agrar Politic

The Problems with Immigrants are mostly Homemade,
to punish this People is a crime because they done nothing criminal!

Anyway, the US Americans here need to know that a liberal Immigration Politic
is the only way for a own survival, without a new wave of Settlers the US will not survive!

I think my unicorn may just vomit rainbows and lollipops.
I do love hearing non US citizens chiming in on our policies. Thanks for that.

The physical act of crossing the border between Mexico and the US is a Federal Crime. SO, illegal they are and criminal they are as well.

The US has a way of coming here. Legal immigration and US Citizenship is achievable.

In addition, if they don't like it here, they are more then welcome to travel back to their home country.

You show the lack of your intelligent by talking about people coming here illegally and you believe that they are forced to come here. Wake up! People like your ilk are the reason for most of the problems in this world. The rest of the problems are created by the Muslim psycho fanatics. No one is forced to come here! No one is forced to work here! Look around you. Go to the grocery store or the casinos, you will see more welfare recipients then you can shake a government check at. Show me one person FORCED to work here! I wanted to avoid this but I think you’re an I@#&%. Sorry for that.

The question that should be asked, is do you support slavery?
Or would it matter if a person broke into your home, slept in your bed, ate the food in your house and then left it a mess and moved on, and you came home, would it matter then?

Looking at all of the different immigration laws in the world, the US has one of the most liberal out there, very welcoming in its nature. If you look at say the immigration policy of Mexico, it is down right unwelcoming towards anyone who is not born in the country of Mexico.

Many other countries if a person crosses the boarder, and is not documented, they are treated like felons, spending time in prisons if not worse. Try that with say North Korea, Iran or even China or our oh so concerned neighbor Mexico. Prison time is the first start and it goes from there, accused sometimes of a far worse crime than entering the country illegally.

The women in this article, did more than just enter into the country illegally, they also were driving without a license, and chances are the woman had no auto insurance. What would you have told the parent or the family of a person who was killed by an illegal immigrant, sorry about your lose, but we have to treat these people with dignity?

No, we can not continue to allow this to continue on. We have to secure the borders first and foremost, along with enforcing the laws that are on the books. The system is broken, and needs to be reformed, along with a change in policies on both sides of the borders, one to discourage people from coming in the middle of the night, often enduring harsh treatment to get here, and the other to encourage people to come through the front door, and welcoming for those who are wanting to be citizens of the country.


We need to stop using illegal immigrants like cheap labor, and ultimately for them to stop using the US like an atm with a never ending supply of money.

Undocumented Women Forced To Give Birth While Shackled And In Police Custody

"When I was in bed, I was begging the sheriff, 'Please let me free -- at least one hand,' and he said, no, he didn't want to," Juana Villegas said in an interview with a local Nashville television station. She was describing the experience of being shackled to her hospital bed as she went into labor. Villegas gave birth in the sheriff's custody, after she was stopped by local police while driving without a valid license.

Like Villegas, Alma Chacon, and Miriam Mendiola-Martinez gave birth in the United States shackled to their hospital beds, without their husbands, and in the presence of a prison guard. They also were not violent criminals, but rather, they were all undocumented and charged with an immigration-related offense in Sheriff Arpaio’s jurisdiction of Maricopa County, Arizona.


Seriously? I mean, yeah she's an illegal and yeah she broke the law, but that's no way to treat someone.


Shackling during childbirth is illegal in 14 states and is against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policy. But women being held for immigration-related offenses classified as "criminal offenses" can still legally be handcuffed to their hospital beds by state authorities in the 36 other states. Those women can also be denied the right to have a family member in the birthing room, or to hold their newborns for longer than 24 hours.

Sick...

America needs a reform... I mean come on.

One more case ...

Alma Chacon and Juana Villegas, while residing in Arizona and Tennessee respectively, gave birth under similiar circumstances. Chacon was detained for a non-violent criminal offense and shackled to her hospital bed. Chacon was allegedly not allowed to nurse or hold her baby until she was released from immigration custody almost 70 days later when she gave birth in .

That's no way to treat people. Even if they are ``criminals``.

Why wasn't she deported before she gave birth? She should of been kicked across the border before hand. Now she can try and claim residence using the bastard*, anchor baby.

*Bastard, as in a illegitimate, illegal child.

Sadly enough because of EMTALA - Emrgency Medical Treatment and Labor Act.

It requires Hospitals to see a patient, regardless of ability to pay or citizenship. It doesnt cover all cases, however labor is one of them.

The laws we put in place to protect individuals from Hospitals turning them away because of ability to pay are the same laws illegal immigrants use.

That area of law gets sticky. Even if a US citizen goes on a 4 state 15 person dead shooting spree and is caught, if he calims he is having a heart attack he gets to go to the hospital to be checked (under certain circumstances the requst can be denied). If its denied and the person dies the very first question from the families attorney is going to be -
" Officer are you trained in Emergency medical medicine?

Officer if you anret trained in Emergency Medical Medicine, then you have no basis to diagnose whether or not your prisoner suffered from a medical condition.

Usually that conversation is followed up by the City asking the family how many zeros they would like after the 1 on their settlement.

I dont think citizenship status should matter for emergency medical treatment, same goes for medical condition. However I do support changing the laws that automatically grant citizenship.

I having nothing against legal immigration. If people wish to come here lawfully and kive their dream, who are we to stop them.

The ones who sneak across the border / enter ilegally. I would rather see them apply pressure in their own country to improve their situations there. Entering the US illegally doesnt fix the problem. Mass deportations wont fix the problem either.

We need to do more to work with our neighbors to help both economies out. With the downturn in the US economy, we are actually seeing people heading back to Mexico, whose economy is doing better than ours.

However ultimately, the people in those countries must start to fix it from within. Running away doesnt work.

You as well as the other Guys are naive, childish and uneducated!
I hope you will spend some Time in a Library and research this Topico a little bit!

I really start to vomit when i read some Commentators here,
how much greed, how much fear, oh my poor US Citizens,
your World is so bad and now the Illegals even start to sleep in your Bed,
steal your Womens and occupy the Parking Lot


The only chance for the US to survive the next decades is a massive Wave of Immigration,
i speak about more than 20-30 Million (maybe even more),
the US have enough space for all of them,
think about the Stimulus for the US Industry/ Crafts and service Contractors-
for everyone of you!

But a denial of medical Services for a "Handcuffed" Women in the state of acute Childbirth
is a shame, a real bloody shame for all of you!

Bigots please read this. Hispanics are a hardworking people, the reason many of the women come here is because of the idea of first rights many Central and South American countries condone. This states that the father is given the right to take his daughters virginity, which is incestual rape, now imagine your father impregnated you wouldn't you run. Also the reason they are heavier than you is dietetics, um when your Catholic and are not allowed to use contraceptive measures uh duh your going to have children, therefore not able to afford nutritional food. If you have never been poor, you dont understand what the real world is like for the poor. Also you have to be a U.S. Citizen to be on welfare.

So because things suck in your house I should let you and everyone of your family in mine... without any help even if i am not capable of supporting you? Look it sucks that people go though this. It happens here to, just not legally. But we are trying to fix our government and they should too. So stating these horrible acts does not make them any less horrible nor does it make them go away. But coming here "undocumented" is still not the process that has been put in place.

And for your welfare comment... wanna bet on that one?

Ok then, lets send all the illegals to your country.
Since, you hold the highest card in morality and human goodness. You take care of them.


Also, there is a difference, a major difference between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants.

Sounds like you need to return back to the library for some reading of your own.

Let me get this Straight, you're from Japan?
America is the Big Ugly Monster on the Teartment of illegals, Right?
Let's get something correct here,,,,,

"Immigrants in Japan: How Many More Deaths to Come?"



The life of an illegal immigrant is never an easy one, but in Japan it can be lethal. Since the beginning of the year, there has been two suicides at the East Japan immigration center in Ibaraki, while last month, Ghanaian national Abubakar Awudu Suraj died while being escorted by Japanese immigration officers onto a plane for deportation. Following a hunger strike in the West Japan immigration center a few months ago, another hunger strike is under way as this notice is being written.


he appalling way in which illegal immigrants are treated in Japan has always been subject to criticism. But these conditions have worsened considerably in recent months. The government shows no interest in tackling the issue and reports in the Japanese media are few and far between. This comes at a time when "fraternity" is a buzzword in Prime Minister Hatoyama's government and after the Justice Minister promised better conditions for immigrants.


Compared to My Home Country of China, The United States of America Treats illegals better than Most Countries.
Much better than the teatment recieved from your Country or Mexico. YOU, need to do more research before you countinue to Spout this B. S.

By The Way,,,, I came to America with My Daughter to be with My American Husband, The Right Way and I've have always been treated with Respect and Kindness and every one here has been helpful to myself and our daughter.
Also, When I gave Birth to our daughter, I was Straped down to include my hands, in CHINA!

on the day when your Son/ Daughter or "Bastard" (hehe) will see the Light

All I read is "wah wah wah wah".

Just as Japan has, the US has ways to go about becoming a legal citizen.

I suggest you start looking at your own country before you start in on others.

As for having to migrate to Japan, I don't see that in the near future.
