Why shouldn’t he collect?
If he was a tourist from Great Britain here on holiday would he have a problem collecting?
It’s great to have people here who have a lot of money, even if illegal. They should make him a citizen now.
...other than that he gave the ticket to someone else to collect for him which gave rise to the dispute.
The question wasn’t whether he could legally collect, but if his former boss stole it from him or not.
Because the law says you need to be here legally. And a tourist is here legally. Not a hard concept.
Gee. Are we selling citizenship now? Lovely.
He's already a citizen. He's a citizen of Guatemala.
