Illegal Immigrant tips hotline - agree or disagree?
July 26, 2007 8:45am CST
A Sheriff in Arizona last Friday started a tip hot line for people to call in and report illegal immigrants. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,290861,00.html So Far they have gotten 300 calls, all of which they are investigating before they act on the tips. Latinos in the community are upset by this move. Personally, I think this is great. The government could use all the help it can get to get rid of illegal immigrants. This tool should be used to report anyone here illegally - regardless of what country the come from.

Do you think people will actually use it? Me? I just don't know. I think I would be too afraid...maybe retaliation. Its hard enough for me to tell on my neighbors who let their animals loose to do their business in my yard. :-(

I know other people on My Lot who would agree with this. Having a hotline is a sure way to report any offence, including illegals. I don't have quite the strong feelings regarding illegals, not being from the US.. We have hotlines for a number of issues. The Police hotline where people can be annoymous & report offences. Then there is the centrelink hotline, where people can report others illegally applying for government benefits. We have the terrorist hotline too.
