I know the stats about US border city safety, but I wonder how long that can hold. Corruption is not contained by a fence or wall. Injustice breeds crime.

Obama Acknowledges DOJ Investigation Against Arpaio! How Many Days Before Arpaio is Indicted!

Obama Acknowledges DOJ Investigation Against Arpaio! How Many Days Before Arpaio is Indicted! | U.S.-Mexico border | Scoop.it

USA Today reports: President Obama and Arizona-based Sheriff Joe Arpaio -- noted for his roundups of illegal immigrants -- are mixing it up. In a roundtable on Hispanic issues Wednesday, Obama said his Justice Department challenged the Arizona immigration law backed by Arpaio because "we thought that there was a great danger that naturalized citizens -- individuals with Latino surnames -- potentially could be vulnerable to questioning." "The laws could be potentially abused in ways that were not fair to Latino citizens in Arizona," Obama said.

Arpaio, interviewed on Arizona television (see link), said he resented the president's suggestion that he engages in racial profiling. "I'm an equal-opportunity guy," Arpaio said. "I enforce all the laws."

Florecita Growing Up: "Just Words"- Verbal Dehumanization by Flor Olivo

Florecita Growing Up: "Just Words"- Verbal Dehumanization by Flor Olivo | U.S.-Mexico border | Scoop.it

Terms like, “they”, “illegals”, “aliens”, “undocumented immigrants” or just plain “immigrants” all in relation to a group of people mirror the sentiments behind them. They are foreigners, they do not belong here, they are strange, and they are not “us”.
