Check out this latest entry in The Register’s series on crime and immigration. Investigative reporter Noberto Santana shot a video of what happens to immigrant criminals deported to Tijuana. While some of them find ways to return across the border, others fall back into crime as they desperately try to survive without a home or a job in Tijuana.
For the past couple of days, I’ve been chatting with you about this Register series on immigration. We’ve been talking about whether local ordinances here in Orange County are fair to everyone, and whether this policy of deporting immigrant criminals is fair to these immigrants and to Mexican authorities. But now, I’d like to give you the floor. What do you think is wrong with our (local AND national) policies on immigrants, and what should we do to fix them?
Do we close the day labor centers, or do we give the immigrants a chance to work? Do we deport all immigrants accused of a crime, or do we give them a fair trial here? Do we dump all the immigrant criminals in Tijuana or not? I want to hear what you have to say about what needs to be done on immigration.
So go ahead and watch that video on The Register’s web site, then please feel free to come back and talk to us about immigrations. This is your open forum. Go ahead. Make my day. Have your say. 🙂
