Its TENNESSEE for crying out loud

I was outraged when Juana Villegas was arrested for being a Mexican Immigrant. Dont the Nashville Police know that she was nine months pregnant, why dont they just let her go to the hospital for a change. WAKE UP!!!!!!! This is not Arizona's Immigration. This is Tennessee for crying out loud.

Juana Villegas

I think that not only she should be recompensated but also that the officers that did this should be removed from duty, I'm not sure if they were or not but it would be nice if they were to prevent this from happening again.
