Isnt kidnapping across state lines a FEDERAL OFFENSE?
ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!!! They committed a crime! DO THE TIME! Then DEPORT them with the understanding that if they return they will be incarcerated for LONG time! We need to keep America AMERICAN!
"CHA Chief of Public Safety Felix Vess recently attended a meeting with Seagrove, Martinez and CHA Executive Director Betsy McCright. Vess noted that Martinez was on the CHA's trespassing list, which has the names of people who don't live in public housing but are seen on site without identification, which is against CHA rules."
ON CHA'S TRESPASSING LIST for breaking CHA rules!
"Martinez also admitted during the meeting that he drove without a driver's license, but he claimed other officers stopped him because Avery said to do it."
Why hasnt he been arrested for driving without a license like anyone else would be? IS HE LEGAL?
"Martinez has had long visits with Seagrove for nearly three years but wasn't on her lease until June 2011, about five months before they moved to another apartment that is not on public housing property."
WHAT CONSTITUTES LONG visits? Was he living there against the rules? Is he LEGAL? Is he a US Citizen or green card holder?
Let me see here:
1. "Vess noted that Martinez was on the CHA's trespassing list"
2. "Martinez also admitted during the meeting that he drove without a driver's license"
3. " Martinez has had long visits with Seagrove for nearly three years but wasn't on her lease"
Sounds to me like CHA Police are only enforcing the rules on the books...since Martinez brought this up maybe ICE should investigate?
These guys have a hard enough job to do with all the crime in Public Housing! The last thing they need is some ILLEGAL that feels they should be fired for doing their job! When is Tennessee gonna see the light like Georgia and Alabama did? Look around at all the ILLEGALS swarming into this area because of the new laws to the south! Look around at any construction job, roofing jobs. etc and tell me how many NON LATINOs you see...they are taking JOBS!
STOP WHINING and go get an ID card! This IS a requirement for EVERYONE period so it is NOT discriminatory! Look around, this city and state are being swarmed by ILLEGALS running from Georgia and Alabamas new Immigration Laws because they know Tennessee will provide them safe haven! Look around, they are taking construction jobs left and right here...and we hear that crops are rotting in the fields in South GA and Alabama and the govt wants to allow more in to the country?
Where is Bob Corker? These 100+ people ARE your constituents too!
Voters also! Why are all our reps laying low and not even mentioning the Postal Service or make comments like "We've heard it's a vital facility. It's a good facility,"! We've heard???????
All elected officials say they want to save jobs or create new jobs but run like hades when it's time to take a stand! Vote them out! There 300K Postal Employees and we do have a memory and our votes count!
Well Chuck Fleischmann, instead of:"We've heard it's a vital facility. It's a good facility," he said. "Decisions will ultimately have to be made."Why dont you take a tour of the facility and talk to the workers there? Why dont you get involved? These people are your constituents and DO VOTE! Amazon is here now and ship a LOT via USPS! Blue Cross has voiced its opinion....Wake Up and get involved or fresher blood in office is looking pretty good!
How about we ONLY consider LEGAL Hispanics in all of this calculating? That would eliminate about 1/2 of East Lake right there! How about this? Draw up the districts by the number of PEOPLE (doesnt matter what color-we have a Black President now and we didnt have to REDISTRICT the country to achieve that!)...and STOP all the whining in Chattanooga about having to prove WHO you are to vote! We've been doing it in Georgia for years and it works just fine! There is nothing RACIAL about it! Older White people have to get the ID just like Black people do...So get over it! Pull up your saggy pants and stop asking for special treatment NAACP!
Time to start a search....for a new coach?
YES, it does seem to be working fine! The article doesnt say how many ILLEGALS the law has caught does it? This article has holes in it, like why was he ticketed? He might not have been wearing a seatbelt..but we dont know cause all this article intends to do is SLAM the new law. IF you are legal and obeying the law what do you have to worry about?. And I really cant see any multibillion dollar auto plant or other factory pulling out of a place because of this...We have factories in China and it is a Communist country so I am sure when American executives go there they obey their laws! This sounds like an article Perla Trevizo would write!
Lookout Chattanooga! ILLEGALS are swarming into this area after Georgia and Alabama wised up....ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!
TKAT you can kiss my radical bigot ass! Are you aware that this is AMERICA and we speak ENGLISH! Are you aware that to become a LEGAL CITIZEN you have learn the language (ENGLISH-official or not) and learn the history of this country? I have no problems with LEGAL HISPANICS or any other LEGAL IMMIGRANT! and deltajew YOU should take another look at bus drivers in Chattanooga..I see numerous WHITE bus drivers....and what does that have to do with jack? CARTA is run by the city so I am sure they have QUOTAS! ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL period! Do you people think burglars that sneak into your house and take your stuff should be amnestied? IT is NO different! They sneak into this country KNOWINGLY in violation of FEDERAL law and take take take...what about the folks that are going through the LEGAL process to earn citizenship?
