    If a legal alien breaks the law, they should be deported, period. Non-violent drug offenses lead to violent ones. If they are here illegally then they need to deported anyways.

      We need to clean these foreign IA blood sucking weeds out of American prisons and let the foreigners use their prisons instead…..the costs are like $100/day per inmate….

      Sheriffs do a better job protecting the people and upholding the Constitution than any federal police. They are the people’s law enforcement elected by the people. They pledge to uphold the Constitution so they have no responsibility to enforce illegal actions by Obama’s mis-justice dept.
