Its all good though the ones arrested will be back in a week anyways if their not deported but if they stay in the U.S. and get convicted of crims we tax payers now have to pay for their incarceration which means they get free housing, food, and clothing.

So not a bad deal for them on our dime

Only 24 arrested in El Paso...What did they do, just go in one 7-11 store...Ha Ha had to laugh at this one...try 24,000 in this city alone, guess they choose not to look in the right places!

Yes we do Robert. I have to go the high school for my job. There are plenty of students that don't know their address, how do you not know where you live.Well unless you don't live here and you don't know what fake address to give. I can't tell you how many students that are going to the schools in El Paso that aren't paying taxes to be in those schools And how about when I talk ENGLISH to the students and they don't understand me? Why don't they read and write ENGLISH!!!

Did they have New Mexico drivers' licenses?

YEs now we need to Go look in to the schools
