Word of the NAHJ board's conference-call vote reached Journal-isms on Monday, but NAHJ officers declined to confirm on the record that such a vote was taken.
Board members then received a strongly worded message from an NAHJ officer that " 'leaking' info about NAHJ isn't being noble. It's pathetic. This ain't wikileaking inform about the war in Iraq. . . . We're not trying to hide anything. . . . where I come from, snitches get stitches."

What sort of a hood rat organization is the National Association of Hispanic Journalists that they have some lowlife threatening their own members and not fire that person? This is beyond ghetto trash.

I guess its illegal to arrest illegals for deportation.
A federal judge ruled late Thursday that the former chief of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and other senior officials could be held liable in a lawsuit claiming that federal officers violated the constitutional rights of illegal immigrants arrested in predawn raids three years ago in New Haven.
A trial and a final ruling are still months away, but Judge Stefan R. Underhill of the United States District Court in Bridgeport ruled that the civil rights lawsuit could move forward, handing a significant victory to advocates of immigrant rights in a case that could have national implications.
The arrests drew wide attention, in part because New Haven officials had been adopting policies to bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows. The raids began on June 6, 2007, two days after the city’s Board of Aldermen approved a plan to offer identification cards to all city residents, including an estimated 15,000 illegal immigrants.
Judge Underhill ruled that the lawyers representing 11 of the arrested immigrants had presented enough evidence that senior federal officials created an environment “under which constitutional violations occurred.” He also ruled that the roughly two dozen arresting officers could be held as liable as well.
Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life.
Henderson County investigators say their Immigrations & Customs Enforcement arrested four men, they say were bragging about being illegal immigrants.
Deputies say on Tuesday, December 14th, the Henderson County Sheriff's Office recieved a disturbance complaint. The caller also stated there were four men at the Bonaire Motel bragging they were illegal immigrants and running up and down the hallway saying "you can't touch us."
The caller told deputies the individuals were staying in the hotel and were driving a white Ford van with a Georgia license plate.
This call was immediately relayed to the local Immigrations & Customs Enforcement (ICE) Criminal Apprehension (CAP) office.
CAP is a team of federal agents assigned to Western North Carolina but operates out of the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.
Federal agents conducted surveillance and requested uniformed officers in marked cars for assistance.
The agent's investigation revealed a total of 15 illegal immigrants on the premises.
Of the fifteen Illegal Aliens discovered in this investigation, three had been removed from the country on at least one prior occasion.
Deputies say these individuals had criminal histories, which included Assault and Battery with Aggravated Physical Force, Assault and Battery, two Domestic Violence Protective Orders against them, Larceny, Harassing phone calls, two counts of Possession of illegal drugs and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

I love stories like these just for the stupidity of it.*translated*
According to the account of the facts, the teacher was explaining the different climates in a geography class and cited the village of Trevelez by cold and dry climate. According to the newspaper account, "as a story, the teacher was just such a climate conducive to healing hams. Then the student asked the teacher not to speak of hams since he offended the matter to be Muslim."
The teacher told the students that their classes did not consider the religion of their students, but apparently the family did not stay at home when he learned the facts, to the extent that he went to the National Police to file a complaint without speaking advance with the teacher.
Why is it that the majority in this country has to take it on the chin to satisfy the whining of the few?
This Santa slid down no chimney, but he feels he and the kids got the shaft nonetheless.
Dennis Jackson said it was over-reaching cultural sensitivity that led to being told his annual Santa appearances must cease at St. Peter Head Start classes for young children.
Jackson said he was told “it was against some people’s wishes” for him to make the half-hour appearances for two classes catering to about three dozen children.
....Chris Marben, who coordinates regional Head Start programs through Mankato-based Minnesota Valley Action Council, said as much.
“We have Somali families in the program,” she said. “We’re respecting the wishes of families in the program.”
She didn’t say how many objections were made, but said that program parents are surveyed annually to gauge their feelings toward holiday observances in classes.
