"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Illegal Immigrants Set Free in Ohio

Local police said they intercepted 20 illegal Mexican immigrants, but were ordered by immigration officials to let them go free.
xxx Belmont County Sheriff Fred Thompson said his officers were instructed by federal immigration services to let all 20 illegal immigrants go free, and said his department has no choice but to follow the orders from immigration officials.
xxx Thompson said officers stopped a van at 3 a.m. Tuesday which was traveling the wrong direction on Interstate 470 in St. Clairsville.
xxx The officer discovered 20 illegal Mexican immigrants inside the van, including three who were previously deported. The officer immediately contacted immigration officials, who told him to let all 20 immigrants go.
xxx "Once we find out they are illegals, it's like pat them on the back of the head and tell them, 'Go on down the road; you'll probably get stopped again,'" Thompson said. xxx The immigrants told the officer they were traveling through Ohio to obtain work in Manassas, Va.
xxx Calls to Citizenship and Immigration Services as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement have not been returned. xxx Source:
