Default Illegal dishwasher out 60k

I normally don't post here, but this article I found on CNN (go figure) makes it sound like we should all have sympathy for this guy:

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/09/27/imm...ef=mpstoryview


Maybe I'm an asshole, but if you're hear for 11 years illegally and you can't speak any English (nor can you see any issue with taking 60k across a border) then you deserve everything you get. Does it suck that he busted his ass for that long?? Yes. Was he breaking the law by not paying his taxes and working here illegally? Yes. Sorry, but in this case he should have been deported long ago. (and for sova, sure, he was being productive and helping the economy to a degree - but think about the legal people here that don't have jobs)

More so I just get so irritated by all these CNN articles that practically state that the illegal immigrants are always in the right and out law officers, whom actually follow the written laws, are in the wrong.

I agree. If you want to live here, more power to you. But you live by our rules. If you have a "no peeing in the living room" rule in your house, what would you do if I came over and peed in your living room? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Mistake costs dishwasher $59,000


Yea...the mistake was coming to this country and thinking you didn't have to live by the laws.

Default Illegals

Too bad. I work with a mexican guy that hates illegals. His parents came here LEGALLY, served in the military, worked, pay taxes, raised decent kids. They understand the word legal.

Thats usually how it is with people who come here legally - I know more than a few and they wish all the illegals were deported

How about having him apply for a greencard, pay back taxes (plus penalties) and SSIP and give him the balance of his money back? That would be fair to everyone. He seems like a hell of a person, if he could learn some english, I'm sure he'd continue to do great in the US - LEGALLY.

It is funny to think you can earn money illegally in the US and then blame the government for being unfair.

Only in our bleeding heart society.

He seems like a well mannered, good natured, hard working man. I like that.

BUT he is here illegally, if he was here legally I would have no problem giving him his money back.

He screwed up, send him back and don't give him his money.

I stopped reading at "illegal". I also worked with a guy from Mexico that was here legally along with his family. he also said the illegals make it tougher on him.
Shortly after I moved to Holland, MI in Feb. '95 I was driving around town. I noticed a Border Patrol office. "Yea, the town is on one of the big lakes." Then I thought "Lake Michigan doesn't border Canada." I asked at work. I was told "Wait until Summer, you will see why."

I used to live out off 16th in some apartments by Country CLub. I remember when my neighbor's POS Mercury was stolen. It was in his carport with his gf's Nissan behind it. They just pushed it out of the way with his car. The police found it about a mile away a couple weeks later.

I also remember the cops chased some guy behind my building. I think they were giving him a pretty good thrashing. I could here him yelling "RODNEY KING! RODNEY KING!" but they had him in the dark well hidden.

I was at tunnel park last year and got into a fight with some "mexicans" that claimed to be ms-13. I called them out and ended up getting into a fight with 3 of them, I was stabbed in the back while walking away. 47 stitches.

I guess the gang problem there is only getting worse, car bombings, drive by shootings.. All sorts of gang like behavior.

I find it ironic that when I travel to Mexico, their government agencies make no effort to speak english. They do their business in spanish.

I don't begrudge them that - it's their country and spanish is their language of choice (since like the U.S. they don't have an "official" / "legal" language).

I'm not offended or angered - it's their country, and I'm just a visitor (well, LEGAL visitor) .

Too bad others don't extend us (the U.S.) the same courtesy.
