Israeli Vendors In Houston Facing Deportation

By: JTA

More than a dozen Israeli salesmen working at two shopping malls in Texas are facing deportation for overstaying their visas.

Federal agents who raided the Galleria and Woodland malls in Houston near closing time on Jan. 23 arrested 13 Israelis and one Moldovan suspected of staying illegally in the country, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The detainees, who sold Dead Sea products and scented soaps at kiosks, are being held until the investigation is completed.

    Mexicans are destroying the US, sucking the life out of our social safety nets and robbing our treasure. They are crowding our prisons (Google illegal mexicans US prisons) and they are uncivilized. The US played Mexico in soccer shortly after 9/11, and the cretins were chanting "Osama! Osama! Osama!" The Israeli's were doing legitimate business and contributing to the economy in Houston. Obama is a nightmare!

    If you're going to do business in America, here's a tip. Change your name to Juan Valdez, and practice this phrase "No habla Engles". You'll get instant amnesty and all the government benefits you want!
