  • Build the wall!!!!!!!!!!

    • take all the meth and tweakers Down there and make them build it, well after they fix our roads, probably be done in a week straight with no sleep, breaks, or food! There going to be doing it anyways might as well have them do something productive.

  • Amimissingsomething

    Kym, Do you know if they are here illegally? Did I read right over it”

  • Bruce Willis' Toupee

    No need to speak english when you speak dinero

  • Bipartisan decision. We are almost a sanctuary state. We voted to keep capital punishment too. Keep em here and hang em high.

  • Mexican cartel drug bust in my opinion. Linked to BLM by way of illegal grows. Linked to immigration by way of illegal entry. Bringing this shit across the border and selling it right here in our backyard. Good bust in my opinion.

  • Illegals come here for work? Well, we have work for them. Repairing our pot-holes and building The Wall!!
    Start rounding these fuckers up!

  • they don’t deserve to live. ANYWHERE !

  • I see now that this has evolved into a so called press conference in Fortuna, by Centro del Pueblo to intimidate and blackmail the Fortuna city officials and the police dept into refusing to cooperate with ICE. Rene Saucedo is quoted as saying,”We will do everything in our power to stop the deportations”. As a fifty year resident of Humboldt, I would like to know just what that is supposed to mean. Hopefully Rene will expound this statement, because it sounds like a veiled threat to me. If Rene would stop trying to intimidate the homeboys and call a press conference to announce cooperation with law enforcement in ridding us of the dope dealers and criminals, I am sure they would be well received. That is the stuff deals are made of. Spiteful trash talking just gets you what you deserve in the end. CdP doesn’t seem interested in making this a good place for us all though. They seem bent on pissing the citizens off, using the same ridiculously lame defense for their subversion as the Muslims. I realize my advice falls on deaf ears where the criminal agitators that are coming to Fortuna are concerned, but the people who are afraid to come out of their houses need to know that it is people like Rene that have created the reason they should be afraid. If it weren’t for their actions, things could be pretty quiet and comfortable around here. Mexican immigrants have had it good around here for a long, long time, and if not for organizations like CdP it would stay that way, knowing the temperament of this area. To put it bluntly; The average, peaceful immigrant is being exploited and deceived by evil, militant, naive fools, who want them to give up their chance of being welcomed in the US. Who do you want to be Immigrant? Che Guevara, or a respected member of the community? By the way. Che’s dead for good reason and took a lot of well meaning uneducated people with him. Loose the slimy agitators, and personally I am fine with immigrants.

  • Drugs on the table! Great FPD press. Are we winning yet??

  • “…. ..Through the months long investigation Special Agents were able to determine some of the involved parties did not speak English….”
    It only took them months to determine they didn’t speak English? LOL
