    It’s not easy being green.

    Zeeba Neighbah would be so happy. (Where would the police deport the crocodiles to, the Florida Everglades?)

    Beware of crocs without docs.

    Reminds me of the Heavy Metal movie, where the police arrest an actual alien:‘Honest guys, I’m an American citizen… I just must have lost my papers somewhere.’
    ‘Damn illegal aliens.’

    @temple SUD – who do you think tipped off the cops?

    It’s no fun being an illegal alien.

    I’d rather the Crocs stay than Justin Bieber.

    It’s actually not that hard. A person has the accent of where they spent their formative years. With less than 5% of the 60+ million Mexican nationals who are having arrived via legal means, the odds are not good that someone with an accent from Mexico D.F, Chihuahua, Monterrey, etc. is here legally.
    That being said, at one point I dated that rarest of Mexicans some years back— one with an actual visa to go to college here. While incredibly rare, it does happen.

    The crocs accent reminds me of Hungarian, but it would be interesting to see where Pastis said they are from. The one comic strip where one of them said, it was blocked out.
    It was disappointing back in college to find out that western America has no accent. The exchange students from different countries told us that we had none. The English is about as uninflected as it gets. Perhaps that is why it’s so easy to fake other group’s accents. Πока

    The good old US of A – a nation founded by immigrants that is scared of new immigrants. Go figure!

    If the crocs were smart (ha!) they’d be able to make a strong federal case here against the cops and the state. But, of course, the crocs are so dumb, they’ll probably willingly accept deportation even though native-born idiots….

    Everybody has an accent. That’s how you tell if someone is from the West, Mid-west or anywhere else.

    Yeah, they stopped my Mexican-American wife (born in New York). ’Cause her accent was SO unAmerican.

    @Jonathan Mason

    Give credit where due: A nation founded by ILLEGAL immigrants. After all, they came here without the original inhabitants permission, then came up with “treaties” in which they stole their land (weapons and some lucky diseases didn’t hurt, either).
