SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah man dodged prison with an unusual ploy - he claimed to be an illegal immigrant and got himself deported to Mexico.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Jaime Alvarado told Salt Lake City police and immigration officials in 2010 that his name was Saul Quiroz and he had come to the U.S. illegally from Mexico. At the time, he faced felony drug distribution charges, but based on his false identity, authorities sent him back to Mexico.

If I ever get arrested I don’t want any special treatment. Just treat me like any other illegal alien.

Proof positive that the ‘system’ is skewed to favor illegals over US citizens. Illegals are our superiors.

McCain, Perry, Grahamnesty,et al you know who you are shove it up sideways.

Who cares? Let’s just go ahead and give America to all the savages of the world since our whores in DC, RINO and Rat alike, are committed to turn us into some third world dump.

Proof positive illegals are treated better under the law than citizens.

Wow, is this some kind of equal-protection issue?

If he’s an illegal the penalty for his actions is deportation.
If he’s a citizen he’s facing 15 years.

The fact that he claimed to be someone else is (IMHO) an entirely separate issue. He can be charged for that offense but it doesn’t (IMHO) affect the fact that he would be given different penalties for the same crime based on his immigration status.

Exactly. This policy is an incentive for criminal immigration. People with criminal intent can come here knowing the worst that will happen is they get sent home. If they sell drugs, maybe send a lot of the money home to a foreign bank account, so you can live very well when you get deported while your citizen co-conspirators go to prison. This ain’t right.

In LA I read they had police checkpoints for insurance checks. US citizens without insurance had their cars towed in addition to the ticket for no insurance. You know how much getting your car back costs.... they did NOT tow the vehicles of illegals (no insurance, no license) but allowed them to call someone to come and get it.

Just another story from the west coast asylum

Which is worse, going to Mexico or to prison? That would be tough choice.

Jaime Alvarado

Seems to me there was a little profiling going on here. Would they have believed him if his name were James Albertson?

If an illegal claims to be a US Citizen he is OK.

However, If a US Citizen claims to be an illegal its a felony.

How does one renounce his citizenship?
