      They should have investigated all the fine employees at P & R Discounts after that one county worker molested one of them because I hear a LOT of Spanish when I go up the Eynon store or down the one in Edwardsville to buy mostly expired junk from them.

      Tell me, Donny, do you mention immigration whenever a person commits a crime or just for the Hispanic ones?
      Bet you don’t bat an eye when a white person commits a crime.

    the libs refuse to acknowledge that barletta had the right idea & this is the outcome.
    if a libs daughter was involved then they would cry foul.

      WOW this is an original comment! Its almost like you say THE EXACT SAME THING ALL THE TIME. You certainly must be an ignorant person. Any normal day of the week there is obviously way more white crime in this area. A story makes you guys foam at the mouth if the persons skin is darker. That way you can unload that racism and bigotry that boils and brews inside you.

        If you had daughters, sisters, or wife, would you welcome molesters or rapists into your home?
        In essence, this is exactly what’s happening. The ‘wrong kind’ of people are being allowed into our home, our country.
        It’s the kind and generous people who are welcoming immigrants, but it’s the kind of immigrant like Mr. Juarez who are mistaking kindness for weakness, and they’re taking advantage of an opportunity to better their lives. I myself am from an immigrant family, but I know better than to bite the hands of those who’ve helped me.
        There ought to be extreme ‘vetting’ of all immigrants before they are allowed to cross our borders and accepted as citizens of this country. Common sense dictates that ‘foxes’ should never be allowed to enter a ‘chicken coupe.’
