    My friend in Sept. 2008 was violently raped, murdered and dumped in a lake where her body was found 7 days later. her killer pled to 51 yrs with parole. he needs the death penalty!!! he's failed to honor his plea. NO AMNESTY To illegals and NO DREAM ACT!!! Justice for Jennifer Lee Hampton. this is NOT their country, the had no fight in it in the Rev. Civil WW., WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, 91 Gulf, Sept. 11th. DEPORT THEM ALL.

    To be clear, I'm glad they're gone, too. I just wanted to point out that this has little or nothing to do with illegal immigration.

    I nitpick because somebody has to nitpick. While the big guy has highly paid nitpickers nitpicking all day, who is nitpicking for the little guy? I dream of a future where EVERY child can look forward to nitpicking; a future where no person has to say, "but I haven't been nitpicked today!" This is the future I'm trying to secure for our children -- when was the last time YOU nitpicked?

    This is a good start; keep it up. And before I see all these post about racism remember...THESE PEOPLE ARE BREAKING THE LAW. They are committing a crime being in this country illegally. People that dont follow the laws of this land and committ crimes go to jail no matter the color of their skin or where they are from.

    @Anonymous: they weren't necessarily illegal immigrants. Some (or most) may have been. The only thing you can glean from this article is that they are foreign nationals who have committed crimes in the U.S. There may very well be green card holders in that list.
