Two men face possible deportation after making threats in Ypsilanti, police say

By Lee Higgins

Two men were arrested Monday after investigators said they showed up at a South Grove Street apartment in Ypsilanti, seeking to collect money owed to them, and threatened to get guns and hurt someone.

The men, ages 27 and 30, are from Mexico and await possible deportation because they are believed to be in the U.S. illegally, Ypsilanti police Det. Sgt. Troy Fulton said.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are investigating. Police said both men were intoxicated and made threats in front of officers.

I still don't understand why people are so against laws like those in Arizona, etc. Illegal immigrants have everything to do with the increasingly high cost of living in our society. They don't pay taxes (except sales tax) yet they use our services into bankruptcy. Hospitals, schools, and police are suffering. Your health care is unaffordable because they use emergency rooms like doctor's offices. Many of them are criminals. That's just a fact. I used to turn a blind eye until the crime and events of absurd entitlement went out of control. This has nothing to do with racism, but an erosion of our rights and our way of living. I'm fed up with it. Deport all illegal immigrants, NOW.

They won't be deported. They are illegal immigtants. They have more rights than us citizens.

Sorry, it doesn't work like that. ICE has to prioritize. These little fishies will probably get thrown back into the community.

What's this "possible deportation" BS? These two miscreants are here illegally. Deport them BEFORE they get a chance to maim or kill an American. It's a frickin' no brainer.
