In North Lima, ICE agents take custody of immigrants

NORTH LIMA

Thirteen illegal immigrants from Mexico, Cuba and Honduras found at a Beaver Township gas station are in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Erie, Pa.

Beaver police were called to the Pilot gas station on Market Street about 6:30 p.m. Saturday by a truck driver who was “very upset” that his vehicle was blocked by a white school bus at that location, said police Lt. Dan Valentine.

The driver told police that the passengers in the bus were illegal immigrants, Valentine said.

Police found the 15 people in the bus, as well as four others in two other vehicles traveling with those in the bus, eating, and questioned them, Valentine said.

Officers had trouble understanding the 19 people, who spoke with Spanish accents, he said.

“They were getting nervous and wanted to avoid me,” he said. “We determined they might be illegal [immigrants].”

Beaver police called ICE agents, who spoke by telephone with some of the people traveling and also suspected some might be illegal immigrants, Valentine said.

Beaver police and the agents deter- mined that 13 were illegal immigrants, most of them from Mexico with a few from Cuba and Honduras, Valentine said.

The 19 were traveling along the Ohio Turnpike from Indiana to Delaware to work on a watermelon farm and got off for gas and food, he said.

The ICE agents took the 13 into custody and back to Erie and the six others went on their way to Delaware, Valentine said.

if the ice agents would check out the marcellous shale worksites, they would find plenty more, they are flocking to the nw pa area, coming from texas to work, they probably think this is too remote of an area to get caught. i know this because i work in the hotel industry.

You know, the heat shouldn't be on the illegal immigrants themselves, but on the greedy bastards who hire them so they can have cheap, exploitable, off-the-books labor.

And really on all of us because if we couldn't get that kind of cheap/undocumented labor to pick produce/process meat/build houses/work at gas fields, we'd be paying a hell of a lot more and whining about it nonstop.

The heat should be on the illegals and on the morons hiring them.

We should set up a two strike system for businesses. First time you are caught it's a fine, second time you forfeit your company.

As for the illegals, we have major issues with hardcore crimes in the US committed by illegals. Really. Criminal backgrounds of illegals are sometimes rather scary. We aren't attracting all good and honest folks, unfortunately.

They're not "immigrants"; they're illegal aliens.

Hmmm, I think the first time it should be 3 days in jail and $5K per illegal alien employed, plus civil asset forfeiture of the illegal gains for the employer; and 2 weeks in jail followed by physical removal from the USA for the illegal aliens.

On a 2nd offense, it should be 3 months in jail/prison plus $25K per illegal alien employed plus civil assent forfeiture (trying to match up the fine with the amount they "save" by not employing citizens); 2 months in jail/prison followed by physical removal from the USA for the illegal aliens.

On a 3rd offense, as "crimelander" suggested, the civil asset forfeiture should reach to the whole business; $50K per illegal alien employed with no recourse to declaration of bankruptcy to eliminate or reduce the fine; plus 3 years in jail/prison for the employer (2 years with good behavior; revocation of privilege to vote, right to carry arms, etc.). For each illegal alien 1 year and one day in jail/prison followed by physical removal from the USA of the alien and all family members (adults as well as minors born in the USA to the illegal aliens) and a blanket ban from any chance to apply for a visa or citizenship.

All of these jail/prison sentences should be on top of and in addition to any other criminal penalties, i.e. not to be served concurrrently but sequentially.

And there should be separate federal prisons for holding illegal aliens, in order to discourage and otherwise limit the spread of the international gangs.

I agree that it surely isn't only the illegals to blame.What about the government that lets the border wide open? However the illegals have to go back as far as I am concerned they are law breakers and a huge drain on the economy ie California.

I don't buy for a minute that they bring cheaper food prices .The corporations simply keep the profits from near slave labor our food prices have gone through the roof thanks to a crappy dollar.

Hasn't the federal government got anything better to do, than restrain Alabama, Georgia, Arizona and other states likely to follow their lead; when it comes to States enacting restrictive laws, stealing taxpayers money for the illegal immigration invasion? Arizona opened everybody eyes when they didn't hesitate in demurring against the czarists in President Obama's throne room. Eric Holder one of the administration surrogates believes Americans should supplement the illegal foreigners, even through such public service like education, health care and many more programs are mostly unfunded mandates forced upon States by Liberal oriented courts.

Currently the Democratic Party is trying to consign the blame on the TEA PARTY, relating to the past U.S. insolvency battle. But when is it going to become evident that this political splinter group of millions is a very large majority of the American people. It's so easy to bring fault to this splinter group of the physical Conservatives, when the far left wing is solidly backed by the rural and National Liberal press who croak about anybody who doesn’t fit their negative agenda. For instance Michele Bachmann (R-MN), high on the list of potential presidential contenders stayed away from the whole US treasury mess. Rep. Michele Bachmann, the TEA PARTY Caucus leader, is dissimilar to the Democrats and the hidden distress of the Liberals or Republicans. The Democrats are doing everything possible to crush THE TEA PARTY growing phenomena, but they have left it too late--it's here to stay and the voices of the people will be heard over the the corporate war industry, big business, unions, the church and the open border corruption.

Rep. Bachmann will not tolerate the loose immigration enforcement we have currently. The lady will build the border fence according to its original design and enact harsh sanctions for businesses that disparagement E-Verify and still hire discount labor. No longer under the TEA PARTY will their be any hesitation, in enforcing the E-Verify or Secure Communities that Homeland Security has notified they are rescinding. The TEA PARTY has become a massive grassroots movement of tens of millions of like-minded Americans from all racial and religious backgrounds and political parties. The TEA PARTY members share the nucleus principles of restricted government, individual freedoms, personal responsibility, fair free markets and above all returning power to the States and the people. The TEA PARTY is about reforming all political parties and government, so the key principles of our Constitution, once again the foundation of which this nation stands.

When you think of immigration--legal or illegal cannot get any worse, that another issue has surfaced and illuminates the nonchalant obligations of the left side of the aisle. President Obama and his confederates behind the closed doors in Congress have been prolifically running up the tab, when we owe foreign investors $14.5 Trillion dollars. This video will explain this matter at http://www.factoverfiction.com/articl... describing that foreign nationals are being accommodated in luxury complexes in Tacoma, Washington, 1300 units using taxpayer’s money. It’s not enough that this North Western State is issuing drivers license to illegal aliens, but they are keeping foreigners warm and dry, with homes that should have gone to homeless Americans. This $225 million Housing project for Illegal’s aliens, whom are living on social security and living off the taxpayers, but have never, paid anything into the fund. It’s no wonder that Social Security will be having serious problems in our future years.

Is there any rational reason why it's not a--FELONY--for entering the United States, without the permission of THE PEOPLES GOVERNMENT? Just making it a Felony for illegally crossing the border or even being on this sovereign land, would deter the daily flow of illegal aliens? Amend the law and we wont be paying out billions a year for every man, women and child from anywhere. Also demand from your Senators and representatives that we need a tracking system as in Mexico? People don't just illegally stay from border crossings, as over 40 percent arrive here legally then disappear.

It’s so incredulous that we have around 14 million Americans searching for jobs, or given up even trying and here we have the Democrats, probably strongly influenced by the left wing. Benevolent handouts to people who entered America illegally. How many US Citizens and legalized residents are homeless, veterans and seniors, nevertheless we are placing a roof over these people heads? If that doesn't get you mad, the fact that they don't even have to mow a lawn, pay for garbage removal, since your taxes is paying for these services.

According to Edwin Rubenstein authored this disturbing report, you can examine at www.TheSocialContract.com, and many more exasperating concerns he addressed about the illegal aliens. Another episode that continues without penalty is the IRS dilemma of fraud on a grand scale is child tax credits by illegal aliens. This is just another part of the failure adding to the feds paying out $113 Billion dollars to support illegal aliens a year. Rubenstein black hit list can be accessed at http://www.vdare.com/rubenstein/index..., with many articles on illegal immigration and the costs that come out of your payroll check. Thousands of Americans are living in poverty, unemployed and living on food stamps, but our money is used to house, school and offer free health care to these people who broke our laws?

Join your local TEA PARTY and add your voice in opposition to the corruption in Washington. The Tea Party leaders are mobilized not to accept any more amnesties, under any assumed name as Immigration Reform. This will explode our population as millions more will come through sponsorship of the CHAIN MIGRATION policies of previous administrations. The DREAM ACT is another "Stacking the Deck" amnesty that exacts the same level of CHAIN MIGRATION in future years. It’s been twenty five years since the grand amnesty of 1986, which has not only encouraged illegal immigration, but poured millions of illegal newcomers into every community in our country.

These outlaws have sucked State, county and communities dry of public welfare, dearly needed for the unemployed. With an estimated 300.000 babies smuggled through Americas sporadic border fence, or through airport terminals the costs are staggering. In just the State of Alabama FAIR's assessment is $298 Million dollars annually spent to support illegal aliens. This is just the outlay in one state and not the US Government expenditures and other States estimated $113 Billion dollars a year. Learn more at http://www.fairus.org/site/DocServer/.... Some Northern States get off easy, but Border States are hit hard and that picks out the Sanctuary State of California, run by mostly Liberal Legislators, adding an almost astonishing amount of a 26 Billion dollar deficit. But all States together run up a tab of $83 Billion dollars, which shows serious rot of the lawmakers who run this country.

Most Americans see no wrong in the immigration of legal immigrants, specifically more so that possess highly skilled credentials. Top level scientists, engineers that will contribute to our economy. What should be inhibited through every means possible is the destitute, the welfare predators and the criminals that we have an abundance, from every corner of the world. Not only should this be highly skilled people, but encouragement should be given to foreign entrepreneurs and businessmen and women, who are venerated by their peers.
