Posted on 05/09/2010 9:10:48 AM PDT by antidemoncrat
An illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet got a $145,000 parting gift from New York City taxpayers before he was deported, after a federal judge ruled his civil rights had been violated when he was held too long on Rikers Island.

Proof that crime does pay, and the taxpayers get to pay the salary.
Judge is an idiot.
And what idiot gave him that amount of money??
Ka-ching. He hit the jackpot.
That’s big money in Barbados . . .
And how many CITIZENS have been wrongly convicted of a crime, spent years of their life in prison and don’t get squat?
The landmark settlement has prompted the Correction Department to dump scores of illegal immigrants on the streets, since federal officials often fail to pick them up within the required two-day window.
An illegal alien does not have the US Civil Rights protection!
That sound you hear is 5 million Illegals heading to New Yorko.
ILLEGAL Aliens have rights? Any way to get an email address on this judge ... we ought to clobber his email. He’s stupid and FR should tell him about 100,000 times ... maybe he’d get it.
Hey, they can lock me in Rykers Island for as long as they want if they are willing to pay me $145,000 a month.
Hey, lock me up for a year!
Deport the judge! Effing traitor!
And where is the prosecutor who didn’t bother to appeal this judgement?
If I were a NYC resident (and I thank the Good Lord I'm not), I'd be screaming this from the rooftops. 145K? To a criminal alien?
Mentally diseased liberal. But I repeat myself.
Over the past ten years it has to be billions of dollars (and property) awarded to illegal aliens. Sure would have saved us some money if they’d been kept out in the first place!
More than HALF of all Federal prosecutions are of illegal aliens.
In 2009, the U.S. Justice Department filed nearly 92,000 immigration-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaking trend accounted for more than half of all new federal prosecutions in the country, according to Justice Department data maintained at Syracuse University..”
The more this sort of thing continues, the more people are going to push back.
This is absolutely disgusting.
The illegal should have been deported post haste (presuming he wasn’t wanted for anything). He isn’t a citizen therefor he isn’t entitled to ANYTHING.
Kick his butt out if he doesn’t deserve to go to jail, and get rid of the America hating corrupt judge.
Lawsuits by illegals have been going on for many years. Illegals refer to it as winning the lottery. They sue Border Patrol and other government agencies all the time and get settlements that are not disclosed. They show up at hospitals in labor with no medical records, no prenatal care and if anything goes wrong- sue the doctor and the hospital when they would not have paid the bills had everything gone right. Many lawyers encourage this and will represent them. A couple years ago a Border Patrol vehicle with illegal prisoners wrecked and lawyers showed up at the hospital right away to help the illegals sue.
We really need to secure the border and get rid of illegals, they cost us so much more than we know- in so many ways.
Yeah, maybe we need to get rid of a bunch of parasitic lawyers at the same time.
Please tell that to Pres. Obama and his puppet Eric Holder.
More evidence as to how broken this Government really is.
I would like to know more about this judge. Something is terribly wrong.
