“Take me out to the U.S.A.,
Take me out with the drugs.
Buy me some I.D.’s to call my own,
I don’t care if I never get home,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
Homeland Security’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three….four, five, six, strikes, you’re out,
At the old immigration game.”
TUCSON, Ariz. — Guidelines issued by U.S. attorneys in Texas showed that most illegal immigrants crossing into the state had to be arrested at least six times before federal authorities would prosecute them, according to an internal Justice Department memo.
The disclosure provides a rare view of how federal authorities attempt to curb illegal immigration. The memo was released this week in response to a congressional investigation of the dismissals of eight U.S. attorneys. The memo says one Texas district prosecutes migrants if the Border Patrol catches them at least six to eight times. The other district prosecutes after someone is caught at least seven times.
In Arizona it may take 10 arrests before a prosecution results.
Americans have always felt it’s three strikes and you’re out…..but the “DOUBLE SECRET” Guidelines issued to it’s prosecutors seemed to paint a different story…….
“Just because someone breaks the law to come into our country illegally….doesn’t mean they will will steal your identity to get a job or kill your kids while driving drunk with a fake drivers license …..
These are bogus arguments…..and are racist. Hell, there are plenty of States who will give illegal immigrants who can’t read street signs or speak english a REAL drivers license.” a department spokesman might have said.
In late 2005, the government created a 200-mile zone near Del Rio, Texas, in which (the Government vowed) every adult arrested for illegal immigration would be prosecuted and jailed before being deported.SOURCE
But the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Bush Administration, and the Mexican Government wanted to recognize Mexican guest workers who were doing the jobs Americans wont do….Jobs like entering our country illegally to bring our kids drugs and pick our tomatoes…..
Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said Thursday that immigration prosecutions are a high priority and that the government sent 30 additional attorneys to the border region in the second half of 2006. “Increasing the number of prosecutors will permit districts to adjust their guidelines and take in more cases,” he said.
Then Possibly adding:
” We have to prioritize….. It’s not that we want to turn drug smugglers and illegal aliens loose , but the extra burden of prosecuting all our law enforcement officers who try to arrest them has put a strain on us.
If we concentrated on Illegal aliens and their employers, our resources would be stretched to thin to put away the real criminals…… Border Patrol Agents and deputy sheriffs.”
Guidelines vary by U.S. attorney office across the border, but Border Patrol Agents with no criminal records who attempt to enforce our laws will almost certainly be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, while our potential guest workers have to be turned back to Mexico ‘’numerous times’’ before getting prosecuted, according to another possible memo.
Justice Department guidelines give them the right to not be prosecuted the first time they break the law…or the second time …
or the third,
or the fourth,
or the fifth time,
or the sixth time,
or the seventh time,
or the eighth…….
but by the ninth or tenth time they break the law we come down on them……
When asked if Ordinary Americans could count on the same number of get out of jail free cards, A justice department Official
Laughed defended the process:
Let me remind you…… We are a nation of laws…..

“Americans understand they go to jail when they break the law….heh heh….. just try not filing your taxes…….suckers…….
