Breitbart -- October 7, 2015
    Activist immigration groups are firing racial profiling allegations against Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell over a program billed as a balance between public safety and the “immigrant community” that allows U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to screen specified jail inmates.
    Illegal alien activists have hurled accusations of potential racial profiling against the newly installed Priority Enforcement Program (PEP) and its administrators.
    McDonnell defended the program to NBC 4, “None of us want somebody released back into the community who's going to continue to reoffend with violent crimes or serious crimes. We want to be able to use all the tools available to us to deal with that.”
    “ICE is not roaming the jails as some have put forward. There is a strict protocol in place that has to be met before ICE can interview an inmate,” McDonnell said. [...]
    Jamiel Shaw, the father of a young man shot and killed by a repeat violent offender illegal alien, spoke out at the May B.O.S. meeting. A known gang had member killed Shaw's son just 28 hours after the offender's release from an L.A. County jail. He had left the jail with the intention of killing a black person.
    “When you say this is a victimless crime, it is not,” Shaw said regarding illegal immigration. “We are Americans, we deserve the American dream…you don't work for illegal aliens, you work for Americans.”

Jorge Ramos: "Undocumented immigrants" should be treated like those who came legally   
In an interview with Terry Gross for her "Fresh Air" program on NPR Monday, Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos provided a glimpse into his reasoning on immigration. As seen in the excerpts below, Ramos makes no distinction between "undocumented immigrants" and legal immigrants. He believes that since Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are Latinos whose parents immigrated to the United States they should support illegal immigration. It is irrelevant to Ramos that that their parents came legally. Here it is clear that Ramos's argument benefits from the change in terminology for the national immigration discussion.......
