Unfortunate

There is a problem with criminals fleeing to Mexico, especially recently. Beauprez is addressing something that does need attention. In fact Ken Salazar was addressing the issue last night in reference to the Jeff Garrett case. Of course Beauprez slipped and said something that could be construed as racist, but he was not trying to make a "racial slur." Historically we have had a problem with extraditing criminals in a timely manner if we are able to extradite them at all. If anyone commits a crime they should receive punishment whether they are American citizens or not. These incidents bring attention to one of the most important issues in America today; unfortunately we had to lose to of Colorado’s own to realize this.

Did we really need a cut-and-paste comment?

McInnis echos the important and most valid point here. Holtzman uses the opportunity to voice vague policy thoughts, and Ritter - who's in the best position to make the comments credited to McInnis - sticks to the more divisive side of the issue.

I don't disagree with Ritter, but as Morrissey's predecessor, he could have hit the ball so much farther. Interesting that it took the Post actually asking the question to get responses...

And what is this?Beauprez, a second-term congressman, blasted the federal government for not enforcing immigration laws, causing "people to grow weary" and fostering intolerance toward Hispanics.Yep - intolerance is the Government's fault. Heaven forbid we take responsibility for our own intolerances...

The Post had an interesting take on this

The National Intelligence Reform Act was supposed to fund 10,000 new border patrol people in 5 years, roughly doubling the size of the Border Patrol..

However, the 2006 budget allows for an increase of 210 people this year. Maybe he should be complaining to somebody else about the lack of border control?

Mark Holtzman made the smartest comments on the illegal immigration issue, easily outpacing Scott and the Dems, who are showing their racism by playing the race card.

Holtzman took the opportunity to show his support for secure borders and his opposition to amnesty for illegal immigrants.

To worry about offending the scofflaws who don't believe in protecting our borders is ludicrous. Morrissey comes off as a politically correct wimp who's not really ready to fight for justice. But that's not surprising for an elected Denver Democrat. No one with spine and belief in enforcing our laws can win an election in Denver.

Okay, Donald. What would you have done if you were Morrissey and you had two families of police officers who wanted to see Garcia tried in Denver?
