Also we read of another raid in Raids in Colorado!.
In Why people are undocumented – dreamacttexas 1st Anniversary Series DAT begins their series by giving us some examples of why people remain undocumented while reminding us that many cannot afford even the basic sustenance for sustaining life. We have a terrible example of human callousness in The Meaningless Dead.

Three posts at Immigration Talk With A Mexican American: Breaking News: Soap Opera Politics Vol 1 Issue 17: McCain adviser on Iraqi PM’s Obama endorsement: ‘We’re f**ked’. If anything affirms Arpaio’s desire for attention rather than actually protecting citizens in Maricopa County it’s this story Nickelbag Joe Arpaio, Media Hound, Racist or Nut, Part 2. One thing we often deal with here is anger of undocumented migrants that kill or hurt others as reason we should deport everyone. In Do Not Blame the Crimes of the One on the Many! we learn that one person doesn’t exemplify a whole group.
