What do you do?

What do you do when your government won't enforce the law and protect your border?
What do you do when those who are in violation of immigration law are out brazenly soliciting work?
Well, you could do what these guys did...
They came up on a group of day-laborers, offered them work and got them into their van, whereupon they zip-tied their hands, drove south about 80 miles and dropped them off in Tijuana, BC, Mexico.

I guess we could call that an "undocumented deportation"?

HELL YEAH!

That's taking a little initiative!
That's a gutsy move. Well, my mom always said "If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself", and we all know that border security is NOT being "done right" at the moment.

Now, the problem is, we live in a country where the government guards its power VERY jealously, whether it chooses to exercise that power or not. Private citizens "deporting" aliens as mentioned above are most likely going to be subject to kidnapping charges, even though they're doing what the government is SUPPOSED to be doing but ISN'T doing.

If these guys get caught, I really think they'll have a hell of a time finding a jury that will convict, even in the Worker's Paradise of California. And that's the way it ought to be.

Government is supposed to work FOR the people, dammit. Seems like lately that's being forgotten.

If anyone sets up a fund to buy their gasoline for future involuntary deportations just holler - I'll be happy to sponsor a tank full or two. If needed I'd be happy to contribute to their legal defense fund.

Bravo!
