cman: In the battle of illegal immigration we have these people, the exploited. These people were held against there will in inhumaine conditions. There is a chance they would have been sold as domestic servants.

And its even worse for women. Many of them become sex slaves in this country. Gangs are most responsible for this. This has become a major problem in the past few years.

So, while you may be screaming "quit takin' our jobs" or "free healthcare for illegals", please remember that this is should be the center issue on the illegal immigration debate.


So what do you recommend doing? A PSA advertising campaign in Latin American countries? You think they don't already know shiat like this happens?

Should have stayed in Mexico.

Wave a magic wand and make a perfect communist utopia forever, of course. But the Jews Zionists done stole all the magic wands! We have to crush their conspiracies and take the magic of socialism back from them! HERPA DERP

Incidentally, the Mexican government tried the PSA thing, except they provided advice on how to illegally enter the USA.

/of course, they claimed it was for LEGAL migrants only
//because people who legally migrate to the US on buses need advice on how to evade border patrols and avoid drowning while crossing large rivers in the dark

Have to hand it to those writing the headline "115 illegal immigrants housed in Texas". If that's all that's left, they must've used one hellava rotorooter to get all the rest of them out. Funny they didn't tell anyone. Cali and AZ would sure like to know how they did it.

Besides being a federal offense, Texas has its own human trafficking laws and the punishments are to be blunt harsh. If any of the people they were holding are found to be minors? They would've done better stealing cars at gunpoint cause they're seriously boned.

Or you know, they could have just stayed in their own country where they belong instead of driving down wages, increasing crime rates, and bringing diseases eradicated in civilized places with them. The mexicans who illegally immigrate to America are the absolute dregs of society, the lowest possible form of human life.


Well, good news, then. These were "Immigrants from El Salvador and Honduras."

I don't get it. The windows may have been locked, but they were still made out of glass. And, if the house was vinyl-clad, going thru the wall wouldn't have been too hard, either. Not to mention ripping a hole in the ceiling and going out thru the attic.

They're from El Salvador and Honduras, here to do the jobs Mexicans won't do.

Kar98: A house? With a door? We should have been so lucky. We lived under the brambles by the road, and we liked it!


well played.

We lived in a shoe box!

They were probably made out of real glass, not Hollywood sugar glass. Walls and gravity are both harder to overcome in real life than in the movies, too.

Oh, I forgot... real glass is unbreakable. So is drywall.

When your only tool is your own body, or the bodies of other people, it might as well be.

/there's big difference between "making a dent in the wall" and "making a hole in the wall large enough to fit a human through"
//hope you never have to find out that difference for yourself

one wonders what would become of an American who was caught after illegally immigrating to Germany, Australia, China etcetera.

God. I'd love to illegally immigrate to the UK or Australia. Somehow I don't think is be welcomed as an undocumented worker.


I have friends w/ dubious status in Germany and Australia. Then again, they're musicians, and are working on their respective legal status.

A) What makes you think that there was nothing else to use as a tool?
B) What makes you think that tools would be needed to make a big enough hole in drywall (or glass), or to separate sheets of vinyl siding?
