SANTA ANA, Calif. — Border Patrol agents say a U.S. citizen claimed to be in the country illegally, possibly hoping to be deported instead of having to face an attempted murder charge in Southern California.

The only shock to me is that we haven’t heard of someone using this defense earlier.

A for creativity

F for decency

F in general because it took so long to think of it as an excuse

I'm sorry, the whole thing gets and F+ for the average score. Lame and fruitless.

Why not? Could be a trend for Americans pose as illegal aliens to get these additional benefits:

1. Free medical care at emergency rooms
2. In state tuition
3. Fly under the radar of the IRS and avoid taxes
4. No ID or proof of insurance if involved in a collision
5. Receive a NINJA loan and then walk away after months/years of no payments with no repercussions

Criminals do tend to be stupid. The state prisons in California and Arizona and God knows how many other states are filled with inmates who were here illegally when they were arrested. Illegal or not, he would have been extradited, tried for the attempted murder charge, jailed and then, if he got out, deported.

I think it’s been done before, especially for legal immigrants who claim to be illegal or Americans who speak with a solid Mexican accent. This is probably just the first guy who claimed being illegal who was caught on the fraud, because it’s murder, not drunken driving or a “minor” charge.

Believe me, the thought of using this defense if I get pulled over has crossed my mind. But it probably wouldn’t work because I’m not swarthy enough.

Yeah, but if I speak German to the cop maybe he'll treat me like an illegal.

You don’t even need to fake a poor accent. Just claim to the child of illegal immigrants who grew up here in the US. Then you can get lower college tuition among other goodies.

That strategy of claiming you are an illegal alien and hoping to be deported instead of being sent to prison is not just one to be used to get out of trouble in the first place. The idea has been floated around in Nevada (and I am sure other states) as a means of dealing with prison overcrowding. The idea calls for releasing illegal aliens back to Mexico. (Where they would of course be free to cross back over the border and return to commit even more crimes. Never mind, of course, that it would set up a two tier system with American citizens serving the time for their crimes while the Mexicans get out of jail free.) The plan is sheer idiocy, but what can I say? We have some certifiable idiots running things in our state.

Why not? Illegals have more rights than Americans. I’m surprised Americans haven’t started going to Mexico, sneaking back in across the border, and just living as illegals. I’m half tempted to do it myself. I’m tired of paying taxes and paying for auto and health insurance. I’m sick of being a chump.

It is sad but true that if we all left the country, renounced our citizenship, changed our names to Juan Gonzales and snuck back into the country, we would have politicians bending over backwards to cater to us, whereas with us being law-abiding, tax paying citizens politicians are only interested in screwing us for all we are worth.
