    This goes on all the time. There is a Farmer in the Esterville area that has a attorney who bring illegals up from the border to work in the Hog Confinements. They give them false I.D.’s Everyone over there knows it but no one does anything about it.

      then…. post his name and his crimes on public forums…. like this one. post his name on craigslist ads. post his name anywhere you can with his crimes. call ice. trust me it is annoying but eventually it works. took me three years of calls to start getting headway on one illegal mexican and i havent heard anything about the other one im trying to get sent home. it sucks and the system is broken. unfortunate thing is our laws somehow protect illegals. otherwise id have just beat them and set fore to them years and years ago.

    Just think what it costs tax payers to house, clothe, feed, these illegals, and then ship back to wherever, over and over and over.
