LA city council is set to vote on boycotting some services/contracts from AZ to punish them for the law. I believe San Diego and San Francisco have done the same. It's just a big Fuck You from the idiots here thinking "we'll show *them*... eh!". Stupid. Syrinx, please clarify which guy you're talking about. I assume you mean this guy: Immigration officials detaining, deporting American citizens | McClatchy As for the guy in the article, first, he wasn't Latino. Second, he was arrested on drug charges. Third, he claimed while in custody that he'd been shot several times serving in the Russian Army and that he swam ashore to America from a Russian Submarine. I think it's safe to say the guy's a nut. Or at the very least, is a few melon balls short of a fruit salad. Am I surprised that he not only lacked proper documentation, but also in telling his wild story, sent up more red flags that would cause the authorities to hold him longer? No. From the article, and it appears this shit happened in 2006-2008, I can't get the exact date, that roughly 280,000 illegal immigrants are found and deported (at least as of 2006). Of those, from the article, 125 are thought to be there mistakenly. 125 out of 280,000? I'll take those odds.
