They always fail to mention the fact that this “immigrant” is an illegal alien. He is also a member of the barbaric MS-13 gang, which proved to be an important factor during jury selection. Apparently, many were afraid they would be murdered if they returned a guilty verdict.

Of course it was an illegal immigrant. I am not surprised.

I actually did read an article that referred to his illegal status.

This is the sort of thing that really irks me about the people who throw up the statute of liberty's "give me your tired, poor, etc." saying, and think we should just open the door wide open because, oh, don't we just feel so sorry for these people?

Illegal immigration is a problem because we have a right to decide who does and does not get allowed into the country. Period. Enforcement of our laws means we can background check "migrants" and make sure they are the kind of people we WANT to live here. The REAL hardworking ones. Not the opportunistic criminals and gang members.

We have enough murderes, whackos and criminals of our own, that we don't need to be importing "migrants" to do the crimes that Americans won't do. So many illegal immigrant apologists (so many with ethnic affinity for illegal immigrants in their own communities) just don't seem to care about the real, tangible toll on American lives. It is unacceptable.

Rather than acknowledging the fact that “some” illegal aliens are a menace, pro-illegals continue to defend their criminal behavior by comparing the crime stats of citizens, as if that mitigates the problem. It’s sad that shared ethnicity has blinded so many. They simply refuse to condemn “their own,” even when they are guilty of committing heinous crimes. That’s a pathology I will never comprehend

I'm with ya. Your skin color should not sway your beliefs one way or another nor should religion.

It is a tribal/cultural thing. That is why it just doesn't fit with American culture where nationality comes before ethnicity.
