Three Georgia men charged with kidnapping

Three Georgia men were charged with kidnapping are in the Jackson County, Ala., Jail, police said.

Jose Loeza-Gonzalez, 33, of Norcross, Ga., Juan Juarez-Silva, 38, of Atlanta, and Jose Salgado-Arellano, 38, of Atlanta, were each charged with first-degree kidnapping. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen said they are all being held for possible immigration violations.

On Tuesday, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Bridgeport, Ala., Police Department responded to a call from Big Daddy’s on U.S. Highway 72 in Bridgeport. A 32-year-old man told police he had been taken at gunpoint by the three suspects from a restaurant in Atlanta and was held against his will at a Georgia apartment overnight, Harnen said.

The suspects apparently drove the victim to the Big Daddy’s. While there, the victim was allowed to go inside and use the bathroom and he asked for help, Harnen said.

"all are being held on possible immigration violations." Illegal aliens committing violent crimes. I wager this will not be their first brush with the law. Probabilities are they will be either be out on bond or paroled shortly to continue committing crimes in the U.S. without fear of deportation. We, as good hearted Americans, would not want to hurt their feelings by sending them back. Of course, while jere they pay no taxes, commit violent crimes, and use our social services (food stamps, welfare, "anchor babies").

A comment to all those who say the illegal aliens are here just "to pick the vegetables 'lazy Americans' won't." I doubt these three violent illegals ever picked a tomato in the U.S. They are criminals, here to be criminals, and will always be criminals. Hard to pick fruit living in Atlanta.

Now that they have established a link between the terrorist group, Hezbollah, and the Mexican drug cartel, the Zetas, American citizens should tell their bought off(an accurate appraisal)Congress that enough is enough. It is time to get serious about enforcing immigration laws.

The American people need to wake up to the level of corruption in our government, on all levels - and, the fact that the greedy business sector, like any addict, has absolutely no qualms about destroying this country to pursue their never ending addiction to more money.
