Re: “Pittsburgh’s National Day of Action for Immigrant Rights draws a rally for local undocumented immigrant

Who were the government officials who started taking illegal immigrants in the first place....they have to get to apply now and complete documentation so the immigration can look at those illegals who had been following all lawsl in USA and may decide to retain them and those who had been a problem to deport them..ASAP....as we have an Immigration Law that has not been followed for along time. Who are supporting the illegal group activities to do all these chaos? Investigate !!!

There needs to be a Class Action Lawsuit against both political parties. And the people, lobby groups and organizations aiding Illegals.
.Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

"Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."

You speak as though compassion should take a back seat to the law. Why do you you value the one so far above the other?

Illegals must be deported. It's the law. As for DACA, that was an unlawful mandate by Obama, and the application process was fraud-ridden. I'm pretty sure Obama hasn't heard the last of that crime.

Re: “Following arrest, media lists Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Joey Porter's past legal trouble but ignore those of the arresting officer

Steve Stevens, I'd love to know who you really are. Considering your account was just created today, January 10th. Why are you so defensive? Related to the case perhaps? Let's check out that IP address...

Re: “Following arrest, media lists Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Joey Porter's past legal trouble but ignore those of the arresting officer

Statement from the acting police chief supports arrest and charges; "In order to clear the air regarding conflicting reports in the media surrounding the circumstances that led to the arrest of Mr. Porter, I reviewed video available from several vantage points, including the arresting officers body-worn camera. I have concluded that the officers account of the incident is accurate and our officer conducted himself in the professional manner that is to be expected. Once the altercation began, the officer turned on his body-worn camera as soon as he was safely able. I support the actions of Officer Paul Able in this arrest.

The biggest tell tale sign that something is wrong with Abel-Trying to force your own wife to lie about grandparents abusing the kids... It says everything, absolutely everything, about Mr Abel. Every deranged thought, action and his mindset in a nut shell. Whoops, no pun intended

Hey liberal assholes, please read the complaint before alleging untrue shit. He didn't turn it on because Porter had his hands and it was 10 degrees out and he had it under his coat. He turned it on as soon as Porter released his hands.

This whole thing reeks, let's here the facts before we pass judgement on Joey. The fact that Able is a scumbag is the only fact we know for certain at this point.

Re: “Following arrest, media lists Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Joey Porter's past legal trouble but ignore those of the arresting officer

Officer Abel was the 9th highest paid city employee in 2012, earning $145,490 that year. He doesn't need to moonlight. By the way, his conduct in the pistol-whipping case cost city taxpayers $44,500 in civil damages. His past is relevant because it includes a history of encouraging his wife to file a false report of sex abuse in a custody matter. Porter is innocent until proven guilty and the officer's credibility will be an issue in his case.

yeah abel's history of being a belligerent scumbag shouldn't discourage anyone from assuming his account of the incident is 100% truthful

sure

Re: “Advocates for Martin Esquivel-Hernandez rally at Philadelphia immigration office

OMG Please do not make Pittsburgh a sanctuary city. It is too close to my part of Ohio and we need to do whatever possible to find a way to send the criminal Mexican back to their own countries and then we can work on a plan to keep some of the illegals here that have been in this country for years. Most need to go back to their own countries and they need to apply to come back. We are a country of immigrants but we were born here. Anchor babies should not be automatic citizens either and that should be made law. Our country is being over-run with Mexican/latinos and drugs. Stop now before its too late.

Re: “ICE deems Pittsburgh undocumented immigrant a priority; supporters scrambling to save him from deportation

He committed a crime by entering this country by any means necessary and he expect to stay he was deported 4 times dam,said he left his country bc of gangs now I am sure the people of the US wants to leave bc of gangs in their cities but if we dont have the resources to do so we have to make the best of a bad situation come its time to do something about this immigration we dont know these people backgrounds you know they are going to lie we have no way of knowing who they really are hell they use the church as cover have y'all notice they always have some church behind them and I will add this if ur mother is illegal and she has a child in the US that shouldn't make her children a citizen she knew when she got here thats what she was going to do so they won't separate the family now what about the family she left behind to come here and 9 times out of 10 she is still married in her country but starting a new family here and remember they have the right to bring other family members to the US when they obtain citizenship. I was really disturbed by a story I read where they took money that was suppose to go for cancer and aids research and let ICE use it to transport the illegals anywhere they wanted to go in the US dam thats not right here yet again at tax payer expense without asking the tax payers and if u notice something they have found a way to by pass gov.issue ID they are using passports as ID
ICE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT SOME OF THOSE FREE PLANE RIDES WE ARE TIRE OF PAYING THOSE HIGH ASS PLANE FARES. IF I have typos,grammar and punctuation misses please forgive me.

I think it's time the City takes a hard look at allowing barroom bouncers to wear their Police uniforms. Sorry, but they ARE NOT on duty.

Re: “Following arrest, media lists Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Joey Porter's past legal trouble but ignore those of the arresting officer

The history of the officer is absolutely important....it speaks to his integrity and or ability to uphold the law honestly and in good judgement. In the end, Porter may have been in the wrong but what people fail to realize is, the officer should be a de-escalator and not an agitator of the situation. If this officer has a history of abusing power, I could only imagine what role he played when he was first on the scene and his body cam was off....like any investigation, allow time and the facts to help make the situation transparent. The officers past simply make his testimony questionable, but that's why investigations involve eye witnesses. If everything matches up, then there should be no problem. But if the stories of multiple people differ and the majority of the stories of the eye witnesses are in sync, this officer's integrity will once again be called into question. Its guys like him that make it harder for honest cops to be trusted by the community....

As an attorney, I can inform that if an officer is acting unlawfully or has shown a prior history of abusing his authority, of course it is relevant when the facts of the arrest are in dispute, and are contested by various eyewitness accounts, as they are in this case.
