The judge should have just had him shot, it be a perfectly fine penalty if we're using the rationale that "he shouldn't have been here in the first place anyway." Being an illegal basically invalidates you as a human being in our country.
What ever happened to "allowing the punishment to fit the crime.
The man was going home anyway! We should thank him, not steal his money!
oh and He probably made somewhere around 6 thousand a year. So it's perfectly possible he could have saved up that much money.
Some of you folks think illegals live and earn money in a vacuum. What if his entire family was here going to school on my dime? Do you know that in Florida the children of illegal migrants get in-home tutors paid for by the state of Florida. In-home tutoring for God's sake!
I consider the $59k a down payment for every dime stolen from Americans by their very nature of being here.
Are you trying to say it was OK for this economic terrorist to invade our country?
Are you an Al Qaeda fan, too?
Okay, we can play this. Bill him 5K a year for living in the USA as the price of having opportunity, living in relative freedom, freedom from invasion by hostile power (actually he was the invader but we'll leave that alone), and economic stability.
You also don't consider that he might have used social services like mass transit (subsidized by US taxpayers), ER services (subsidized) and maybe others as well.
5000 X 11 years .... 55,000 dollars. Great, he only owes us 6000 more
That's like "perfectly possible" (?!) that he lived 11 years, room and board, never mind health care or anything else on $53 a month?
Didn't I see you in the bar scene in the original Star Wars movie??
