2,527 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees and co-conspirators convicted of corruption and other criminal misconduct

What I have done here is to take a paragraph out of each of the articles cited over the last couple of weeks to see what the trends, patterns and themes are that arise from them.  

What emerges is self-serving politics at its best. The saddest part is that there are over 2.3 million men, women and children in the jails and prisons of the nation and there is no attempt to organize a cohesive set of principles that guide law enforcement in enforcing the laws that are on the book.

Mind you this is only the tip of the ice berg on this an election year. What I have purposely left out is the secret service escapades in Colombia. These are the law enforcement agencies on a national level that are setting the examples and precedents for state and county law enforcement agencies. The bottom line is that there are no laws in this nation that apply equally to all.

    I am confused about the point you are making here- it is not exactly a trade off between immigrants trying to find a way to live and work in the US with an incredibly bureaucratic system of getting the papers to do so and finding ways to reform a “criminal justice system” that isn’t doing much to help anyone or to build stronger communities so taht people aren’t faced with such crappy choices in life. What ais the argument you are trying to make here? I would argue that many immigrants are just as disenfranchised and vulnerable as the folk sitting in Lowell…
