The second suspect was about 5 foot 8, had a medium to large build and wore short black hair, a gray sweatshirt and blue pants.

Gang bangers. Who else would wear a knit hat and a long sleeved black sweater in Temecula in August.

According to Governor Brown's new policy for admission to the UC system for illegal aliens in California that were probably college students.

Well if they are illegal hopefully they drove back to Mexico, Central America.
Does anyone realize we have laws in place to arrest and send these people back to where they come from? Our government is aiding and abetting them by NOT FOLLOWING THAT LAW.
If they get in here again they go to prison.
Brown and Obama only got in office from all the families of illegals voting for them with the promise of college, drivers licenses, amnesty, free medical, federal and state aid programs where THEY STILL DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TAXES or be legal. So with all the things we need to fix in this country primarily our own 1 in 5 living under the poverty level, and 1 in 4 going hungry and not knowing where they will live from week to week, all Obama and Brown talk about since taking office is the ILLEGALS AND GIVING THEM AMNESTY. WE CANNOT Afford to take care of our USA Citizens who have worked and paid taxes, and now you are going to dump some 43 million more illegals on us(with thousands coming in daily to get on in the Amnesty) to give aid to, housing, food, etc. and COLLEGE??? We cannot afford to send our own kids to college but lets let in all the illegals who it will cost us several million a year just to teach them english so they can get in college classes. THESE idiots are INSANE!

Why do we even bother anymore. It doesnt seem like anything ever happens to criminals anyway. This wouldnt have happened if cops patrolled anymore. They are much too busy messing around with innocent people instead. Why doesnt the stupid gang unit start going after carjackers? Seems like their is a heck of alot of violent crime going on while cops are at Kfc.

It's possible they are spoiled rich kids with nothing better to do. Just because they are Hispanic, does not mean they are illegal.

Grandma is right on!!

Newsbreak: Obama wants to spend 6.3 trillion on amnesty for illegal aliens.... you have what we call, an irrational sense of entitlement. You believe that you deserve something for doing nothing.

We have always been a country of immigrants.

We used to try a 'save the rain forests'...remember that....

Dumb's point is well taken and those pointing the finger at Government don't have a clue. We the People are responsible for Government actions and if you are not happy then you need to get off the apathy train, get educated, unite, stop arguing over non issues, vote and pay the price for change. Hating and blaming will get you ...?

You vote for progressive democrats, you get screwed. Simple as that. They are not stand up people. They give away our tax dollars for votes. A far as pigeons go, the most popular person in the park is the one throwing bread crumbs. Who's ever throwing crumbs gets voted in, because the pigeons are voting for the crumbs, not for the honest and right.

I google-mapped the location. Funny, but it appears to be -very- close to the Illegal Day-Laborer pick up area.

Naw, it's gotta be just a coincidence.

More to come:

"SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Criminals serving long prison sentences for offenses they committed as teenagers would have an earlier chance for freedom under a bill working its way through the California Legislature.

The bill by Sen. Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, expands on legislation signed into law last year that gives a second chance to inmates who committed murder before they turned 18 and were sentenced to life without parole."

Do any of you know if any of these guys are illegals? Seriously? I'm Mex-Am (my family has been here since at least 1890) my husband is Italian-Am (his people since the 1920s) are you going to deport me? my kids? my man?

You people are too much! I think we should deport you. Except who would have you?

This country has always been a country of immigrants.

Get legal, get job, pay taxes, buy healthcare, pay college, buy groceries. Get off government handouts.

Why work when I can get freebies and freedom?? Because it is the RIGHT thing to do and makes us the MAN or WOMAN - PARENT we should be and lead by example. I 'like' my job anyway!!!

It was somebody stopped where the illegals congregate, probably looking for illegals for day labor work and got jacked instead. Those illegal day laborers are no better than or the same as illegal prostitutes standing there. Just plying a different trade :) prositutes look better though :D

@Barb - as your family has been here snce 1890, why aren't you American? My dad's family has been here 1903, I am American, not German-American; as Whoopi Goldberg said, she is American, not African-American, because she IDENTIFIES with America.

My heritage is Irish and Native American. I do not know if the two creeps involved in this mugging are illegals or not. My guess is that they are gang bangers, probably from Perris or Elsinore. The article does say that they are Hispanic.

Im a latino and all I got to say why are you hating on mexicans if you got a problem start something that makes all the mexicans go back to mexico for one week and you will see how america would crumble we are the holders of your wobbly pedistool that keep you from falling if we left what would happen do the math if your so smart

@Latino teen - if all the illegals left the under-educated, unemployed citizens and legal immigrants would be able to take over those jobs. The cost of feeding and housing those that would take those jobs would drop, the cost of educating the illegals children would drop, the cost of medical care for the illegals would drop, the cost of SNAP and other welfare for the illegals would drop - you do the math.

If you all left...My math calculations start with: No free lunch, medical, welfare, foodstamps, free education...I have just saved the government over $1.3 billion in one month...California alone. I do my own yard work and clean my own house.

No, sorry latino teen, America would not crumble - that is laughable.

I have a high paying job because I am educated, willing to work hard, love learning and willing to listen....but believe me, you wouldn't understand that.
