No one denies illegal immigration’s a big problem in the US. Surely you could come up with video/youtube clip that is more recent to make your point. The Dobbs clip ( he left CNN in a huff in November 2009) you chose is from November 4, 2006! More than 4 years old
It’s not difficult to mine the Internet for material to support ANY belief — left, right, or wacko. It’s like the Bible – anyone can find anything they want in it to support his/her position. It’s all in the interpretation. Few people are going to take the time to click on all these links. I did, because I knew your comment was directed at me. Once again, it falls short of providing any new insight into today’s problems — or the solutions thereto. It’s just the same old stuff.

I guess most that dislike it are either illegal or ignorant and wish that everyone else pay for it in taxes and not them. Guarantee those that dislike are getting some form of subsidy (money no work or little) with kids. If they dislike it so much and it is wrong in their eyes, why no response as to why? Because they have none, only the dislike button.

The clip may be old but the problem is also much worse! You cant have it both ways! PLUS I did not direct it at you and thought you were done. I see a very paranoid person that had to say that. Must be a real issue with you that it is O.K. and nothing is wrong.
Show me otherwise, wise one. Maybe instead of bashing we could have a civil conversation.

Here is more recent if it helps. Only shows it got worse, so your old clip point is really mute and without substance.
If you are so inclined to defend it, please explain it in a way that makes sense to those that pay for it…

Starting to realize that the dislikes can not spell or read English. Wonder how that would go over in Mexico or abroad?
Under Mexican law, it is a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico.
At a time when the Supreme Court and many politicians seek to bring American law in line with foreign legal norms, itâ€™s noteworthy that nobody has argued that the U.S. look at how Mexico deals with immigration and what it might teach us about how best to solve
our illegal immigration problem. Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:
* in the country legally;
* have the means to sustain themselves economically;
* not destined to be burdens on society;
* of economic and social benefit to society;
* of good character and have no criminal records; and
* contributors to the general well-being of the nation.
The law also ensures that:
* immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
* foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
* foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the countryâ€™s internal politics;
* foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
* foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
* those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.
Who could disagree with such a law? It makes perfect sense. The Mexican constitution strictly defines the rights of citizens — and the denial of many fundamental rights to non-citizens, illegal and illegal. Under the constitution, the Ley General de PoblaciÃ³n, or
General Law on Population, spells out specifically the country’s immigration policy.
It is an interesting law — and one that should cause us all to ask, Why is our great southern neighbor pushing us to water down our own immigration laws and policies, when its own immigration restrictions are the toughest on the continent? If a felony is a
crime punishable by more than one year in prison, then Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico.
If the United States adopted such statutes, Mexico no doubt would denounce it as a manifestation of American racism and bigotry.
We looked at the immigration provisions of the Mexican constitution.  Now let’s look at Mexico’s main immigration law.
Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:
* Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)
* Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)
* Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)
* The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38)
Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:
* Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)
* A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity. (Articles 85 and 86)
* A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).
Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:
* Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)
* Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)
Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:
* Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)
* Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)
* Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.
Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. The General Law on Population says,
* “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)
* Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
* Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126)
Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:

That’s a lot of good information whatajoke. Just last night I saw a show about how out of control Mexico is with the drug cartels basically having more power than the government in many areas and of course that spills right over into the US. Unfortunately most of our politicians both democrat and republican have little interest in doing anything about the problem because they are worried about losing the hispanic vote.

Only one question…Who in their right mind would make a conscious choice to move to Mexico? I guess the only motivation that there used to be was because there was about 10 million pesos to the dollar, but that has probably changed so that there are only about 5 million pesos to the dollar. You could live like a king for years in Mexico on just $10!
Actually, each peso is worth $.08. 12 pesos to the dollar, so I was close. Still the only reason I could understand to actually move there.

Wrongful immigration has everything to do with this article and this murder of a boy. Whatâ€™s worse is that it happens all over the country thousands and thousands of times a year in OUR country. I canâ€™t understand why there isnâ€™t way, WAY more people standing up for there rights on this issue, in this town! We have the right to be free from this infliction and demand that It Be So! It is not the citizens burden to prove that anyone is illegal, it is the contested ones burden to prove that they are legal, that they originally came here legally, and that no one is here as the direct result of illegal acts of another! No different then I have to prove I am driving legally or anything else law enforcement wants me to establish the truth or validity of. If they canâ€™t do that then they need to return to their homeland and start over, Demand Itâ€¦ We deserve better..

illegal immigration is a huge problem to be sure. but it doesn’t seem appropriate to steer this case and verdict into a platform for illegal immigration debate. It is the family of Sky Erickson’s moment to take whatever peace of mind they can get from this guilty verdict – and that’s more important than anyone’s opinion on illegal immigration. good old red blooded American children had their hands in killing their fellow American peer in this case, as well as the illegal immigrant that was involved. none of them can be allowed to walk free. at least in prison “the man” won’t be selling drugs to minors or killing any more area children. Sure, there is a cost to incarcerating each of these people, but they cost the taxpayer regardless as they don’t make a positive contribution to society either way. if the illegal murderer was just dropped back off at the border and deported – he would just come back under a new name and begin another criminal organization. at least this way he is under our lock and key til he will be too old to sell meth and execute a 15 yr old. I personally was all for lining each and every one of these conspirators up and letting a firing squad eliminate them from the gene pool – including Ms. Sarah Kozak, but unfortunately it was not my decision to make.

Los Krazy Boys is not not allow good old red blooded American children in their crib unless you know otherwise. Alden was not white that I can see. Knowing his future in the U.S. was over, Kuchera added, Castillo-Alvarez chose to leave the country where he had lived illegally. None of the others involved have been cleared as being legal in this country. I understand that It is the family of Sky Ericksonâ€™s moment to take whatever peace of mind they can get from this guilty verdict, but it is what it is and it was because of an illegal that it happened and is a huge part of the story. Can you show me that the good old Americans were not illegal? Were you at the trial?

Who’s Alden? I don’t find that name anywhere in the story. Perhaps he/she appeared in an earlier story that I missed. Does his/her race matter? How do you know so much about how this gang behaved or who they let into their gang, and what race the gang members were? I also don’t see any reference in this story to the the immigration status of the “good old Americans”. Why are bloggers here responsible to “show you that they were not illegal”? Were you at the trial? Justice has been served. Let the victim’s family take comfort in that and leave the rest of it alone, for once.

Ben Alden, Sarah Kozak, Shawn Knackmuhs, Thomas Mann – all involved in this murder and all legal natural born citizens. those are the people I was referring to when I said good old red blooded Americans. FYI – the good old red blooded American comment was meant to say that all of the defendants in the Sky Erickson murder case (not just referring to Castillo-Alverez’s particular trial) are responsible and should all be held accountable – not just the illegal immigrant(s). Luis Lua and Aurelio whats his last name…. I don’t recall off the top of my head if they were legal or illegals – a big to do being made of their immigration status doesn’t jump out at me, so I’m gonna infer that their immigration status was not an issue. The article that I was commenting on originally was about the trial and verdict. That is why I was having a disconnect with the fact that most of the comments on this thread were about illegal immigration policy in general – as opposed to being commentary related to the particular case in the Globe article. Los Krazy Boys may or may not allow red blooded Americans in their cribs – don’t really know/care. I do know that people claiming that affiliation – some Hispanic some Caucasian all conspired to murder this boy. Was I at this particular trial – no. Sky Erickson’s detailed autopsy was the first one I ever read. Due to my job at that time, in relation to a different defendant in the case, I had to go over that autopsy report in detail, and it left an impression on me. I have followed this case over the years ever since. I had access to facts that were introduced to the juries the trials as well as facts that did not get introduced to the juries due to rules of evidence/stipulations etc…. I probably don’t know everything there is to know about this case, but what I do know about it left me with the opinion that the immigration thing is secondary at most.

Pretty funny that asking for facts is a dislike! I guess you are living in a fictional world and the truth should not be questioned when you are wrong. If you dislike it so much then you must have a reason? Apparently you do not have a reason or you post it! Can you say Â¡idiota?

I’m not “conceded”, nor am I CONCEITED. If you attended the trial, and can offer up all the facts of the trial — from your own notes, the notes of others, or the newspaper articles — why are you asking bloggers here for more facts? I can’t speak for others, but I’m really not interested in reliving the facts of this case. I’m just happy that justice was served and that the victim’s family can now have some peace after so many years. That’s what this news article was supposed to be about.

I did not attend the trial just to be there. I had a reason. Most relatives do have a reason to be there. Your comment (not blog) is not speaking for relatives. You claim to know more as in (facts). Get your facts straight about the subject first.

And here is what YOU said as well: “Once again, it falls short of providing any new insight into todayâ€™s problems â€” or the solutions thereto. Itâ€™s just the same old stuff.”
I would very much like to hear your solutions when it happens to you! You don’t even offer any when it has yet to happen to you. Hopefully God willing it will never happen to you…
What solutions do you offer?
WHY would ANYONE dislike a post asking for a solution or hoping it never happens to anyone else or by a relative that knows? Pretty rude if you ask me. I guess you ran out of solutions or facts…OR maybe are on the other side or you would post why you dislike. Sad…
Go ahead and just push dislike and not post why. You only prove my point more.
If you feel strongly against something, you can still leave a comment and express your opinion. That can actually be helpful. If you wanted to press the â€œdislikeâ€ button on something because you found it inaccurate or offensive, you can actually write why you feel that way. Constructive criticism means a lot more than a little image of thumb pointing down. Some people will still be offended by critical posts, but now you will have a starting point to discuss it. Unfortunately most dislikes have no clue. I bet they are illegal as well, or favor it. See no posts on their part, maybe cant read?

Think of it this way. The red checkers voice is effectively silenced. Nobody knows their concerns, ideas, comments, likes or dislikes, nothing really! Your voice on the other hand is being HEARDâ€¦.So maybe not all bad. I have noticed that other sites that I go to only have a, like button, if they have any at all. Iâ€™m much more likely to remember the posted comment then the red check, nothing there to remember, know what I mean!
