Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --

Federal authorities have arrested 32 illegal immigrants in central and south Georgia who they say are accused of committing crimes or fled after a judge ordered them to leave the country.

They were rounded up in a four-day operation that ended Friday, Sept. 25 and took place in Houston, Peach, Bibb, Dougherty, Toombs and
Thomas counties.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Ivan Ortiz-Delgado
says many of the illegal immigrants are subject to immediate
removal since they have outstanding deportation orders or were
previously deported.

The rest will stay in custody until their criminal cases are
completed, they get a hearing before an immigration judge or travel
arrangements out of the country can be made.

    it would not be so bad if they did what they were brought to this country to do, work in the fields. so many of them have come to this country and are NOT out there working, they are sitting at home on welfare and having babies. a lot of US citizens that have worked most of their lives and paid taxes can not get help when something happens to them (become disabled)and are not able to work can not get help. and our seniors that have worked and paid taxes all of their lives can not get help when they are no longer able to work. we need to start taking care of our own citizens that contribute and support our country before it is too late. all of us will reach this point in our lives sooner or later.

    Michelle oh how I DO agree with U. I HAVE SAID ALL of that before. IT IS TRUE I am tired of supporting the road sign people and the one who says I'm to good for that kind of work, feed me & give me a roof. Don't care where they come from either. I'm needing to retire & get off my bad legs. But I WORK. All of them can get off thier LAZY BUTTS.

    MICHELLE...you're focusing on immigrants...we're focusing on ILLEGAL immigrants. There is a difference. Why are you attempting to blur the lines?

    Everyone is focusing on the immigrants, and forget that there are "MANY MANY Americans" that taxpayers like myself, support, feed, house, etc., because they don't want to go out there and get job; let alone, go out there in the hot sun, cold, and rain to pick fruit and vegetables. You won't see an immigrant at the homeless shelter, or by the road with the sign saying help, donate. They're out there working for nothing in the fields so you can enjoy your fruit/veggies or out doing construction.

    Would it be cruel and unusual punishment for a few million prisoners to do the crop picking in the fields for gain time?

    The first "immigrants" were not illegal. No laws existed against their being here. Today they do, with a prescribed way to enter this country legally and to become a legal citizen. Illegal immigrants are those who choose to break the law to enter the country without making use of those methods. Michelle, the reason there are no Americans who want to do hard, hot work is that they don't have to. Our bleeding heart liberals have made it possible for able bodied people to live quite nicely from the public trough without doing anything, with working taxpayers supplying their food, shelter, and medical needs. It is time that stopped. I have no problem with helping those who can't work, but I have a strong aversion to those able bodied who are just taking advantage of us. God told Adam and Eve in Genesis after the fall that from that time on they would eat by the sweat of their brow, and Paul said those who won't work shouldn't eat. Appears that attitude is quite scriptural.

    Listen...I truly understand the hardships that many of the "Illeggal Immigrants" face just only a daily bases to fed their family and try to make a better way of life,and if they commit crimes they should be punished,on the other hand.What so many people forget is that OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED BY "Illegal IMMIGRANTS"... so when you are eating yor fruit and vegtables that many "illegal immigrants" worked in the HOT AND UNBEARABLE HEAT FOR VERY LITTLE MONEY... I hope that you remember where it came from and who larbored in the hot fields for it...YES THEY MIGHT HAVE "BROKEN A LAW but WOULDN'T YOU TO FED YOUR FAMILY...?" "ONE NATION UNDER GOD" (NOT TWO ARE THREE...ONE IN THE END. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
