    @bigal, if no one knows how many illegal aliens are here...how do you know?

    Besides, the percentages that you *made up* are still a minority of the population. So, it seems that a reasonable person (who has had a highschool math course) would give the benefit of the doubt. For example, in this case 2 people were accused. Even using your highest made-up percentage (2 out of 3 are legal), statistics would dictate that these two guys are probably here legally. Only if there was a third person accused, would it allow you to (reasonably) say that one of them might be here illegally.

    The goat was not harmed. Several chickens were treated for minor injuries and released.

    I tried to explain to hereandnow that anywhere from 25 to 33% of hispanics are here illegally if you believe the census figures. 10 to 15 million here illegally. 40 million or so here in total. That would mean you have a 1 in 4 to 1 in 3 chance of being correct if you think someone is here illegally. And with that ratio, how could it be profiling to ask about legal status? 1/4 to 1/3 of a population of a certain ethnicity here illegally and you have people crying foul because our law enforcement might be "profiling"?

    I bet they was fighting over a chicken.

    Wonder if they are even legal citizens.

    I'm sure there is more to this than what is being reported. We'll just have to wait and see if it is.

    where does the story say these people are 1) here illegally and 2) "suck off our gov't system"?

    Are you guys reading this elsewhere or is this just what you believe them to be? If it's the latter, do you think it's a constructive mindset to have?

    typical....flock to our country illegally, suck off our gov't system that they had no part in building and then commit murders. I say they both get stabbed back, but very slowly to maximize the pain, then send them back to mexico walking,so we don't waste our gas transporting them, meanwhile let's not use our medical supplies to heal their stab wounds and if they make it back to mexico then they can get help. From their own people however.

    "Two Illegal Aliens Charged in Double Stabbing"
