I’m not sure why this story would be of interest here. This person committed a second offense 16 years later for the rape of a minor and was found to currently be in a Mexican prison serving a 18-year sentence. I feel no sympathy in this case. Most everyone deserves a second chance. He got his second chance and screwed up again. I don’t think he needs a third chance by being allowed back into the U.S. And I seriously doubt a Mexican prison offers him any therapy or rehabilitation services.

Yeah they took the worse example. They mention some deportations that had a more iffy justifications, but chose to focus on this guy. The main point was that you can have your citizenship revoked for something as trivial as lying on a form. It was not a good example.

Hey, they get to leave the country now – we are stuck here.

Exactly. Deport my butt to Italy or Sicily where my family roots are. I don’t belong in America. Hint hint.

This is a really nasty political endeavor It took 20 years to find? 10 years past the statute of limitations for an error / omission / lie on his application. That judge had to get creative to make his ruling happen. I do not know what it is, but something sounds really wrong with that effort.

it just shows how biased judges really are. I feel very little sympathy for the guy but these judges seem to feel that it is their job to find anyway possible to apply the law to convict or assist the DA or legislators in determining what laws will work to get a conviction…its as though they are an extension of the the legislative branch and the DA doesn’t even have to work or know what laws apply because the judges will figure out ways to apply the law to get a conviction that sticks

Works for me.

I hope the guy finds his way to a good life , and feels lucky that he and his family can live in peace because maybe he will have that choice , I don’t know I have never lived there , I mean I was not there when they say there was a crime , I trust no court at this point and why should I , its not like the pretenders and the courts have shown there wiliness to undo wrongs , matter of fact they go out of there way to hide them , I have never even… Read more »
