Re: “Fourth of July Fireworks!

Why didn't you list the City of Marana's firework show? It was huge and last about 25-30 minutes. I guess someone didn't do any research instead just wrote a quick, easy and inaccurate story.

Re: “Your Tax Dollars at Work

WOW....I have never seen such a crappy piece journalism, or is this actually journalism or some author putting his distorted point of view under the guise of actual journalism. I don't think ICE ever goes into immigrant communities with the intent of harassing legal residents. I am willing to bet the only people who get harassed are illegal aliens (people here without the proper documentation and permission to stay or enter, and yes the correct legal term is illegal alien not undocumented immigrant) who commit crimes that fall under ICE's scope of authority. As far as the comment that there are crack dealers who need to be arrested you really should talk to the Tucson Police Department not ICE or the Border patrol, they enforce federal laws.

The author obviously has a biased and is not interested in true facts and the observance of US immigration laws. The author tries to associate an illegal aliens (he stated immigrant; however, I am sure he means illegal aliens since true legal immigrants don't have the need to worry about immigration arrests) health issues being the result of police/federal persecution. The author does not take into effect the high amount of obesity in the Mexican community because of diet and genetics. The author doesn't tell you that obesity and failure to keep a fat free diet leads to heart disease not the US law enforcement officials doing their job. The author cannot show any professional studies about this issue instead he cherry picks a doctor who has his same political views and is most likely not even a research doctor.

The author leaves out the statistics of illegal aliens caught by ICE and the Border patrol who are drug smugglers, pedophiles, rapists and murders. The author would like you to believe that the law enforcement officials enforcing the laws that the US congress has set in place are actually the bad guys. I am willing to bet that if the author was getting held up at gun point or physically assaulted he would love to see ICE or Border Patrol then because he truly knows they will put their life's at risk to save his no matter how skewed his believes are.
