First of all, just because you are here legally you don't have to learn the English language good enough for this not to happen to you. Secondly, If this happened to an American in Mexico I would wager your thoughts would be holy hell. You can get medicaid and be here illegally, so why does it surprise you that he has human rights. That is how are system works and what makes our country so great. But not many of you have addressed the fact that investigators and the DA's office did such shotty work and took so long to figure this out. Regardless of his legal status, do you want those same people back on the street doing more shoddy work....and you being the next person sitting in jail for a crime that you didn't committ. THAT SHOULD be what you care more about from this story instead of the discriminating fact that he was here illegally and might get a dime or two off the county. Whatever he gets it will be less than what he would have made had he worked.
