An 11-year-old boy was killed in that fire, and the motive for setting it was reiterated in court this morning -- the suspect allegedly did it to scare her sister.... "She became angry when she heard that she may be evicted from the apartment occupied by her sister and her sister's husband," said prosecutors in court.

Rosalidia Romero has asked for a court-appointed lawyer. If convicted on the charge, she could face five to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Why should taxpayers be expected to foot the bill for this scumbags’ defense, not to mention, a lengthy prison sentence? It’s bad enough that we are forced to pay for citizens.

What is your solution? not to give any legal defence or trials to Illegal aliens? Since you dont want to pay for incareration, should we take the accused form the police station and deport them without a trial?

You don’t want to know what I would suggest for people such as this arsonist murderer. If illegals can afford to send billions to their countries of origin, buy expensive SUV’s, and purchase homes, they can pay for their own legal defense.

We aren’t required to pay for their immigration attorneys, and we shouldn’t be required to fund their legal defense when they rob, rape, murder, or commit other criminal offenses. How much would illegals have to fleece this country to warrant your condemnation? Or, is that even possible?

There is a difference in a criminal case and an Immigration case. The federal govenment classifies immigration law a "administrative " law.






  • Criminal law involves the state imposing sanctions for defined crimes committed by individuals or businesses, so that society can achieve its brand of justice and a peaceable social order. This differs from Civil law in that civil actions are disputes between two parties that are not of significant public concern.
The federal government is given great leeway [by Congress and the Courts] in dealing with illegal aliens. The federal govenment classifies first time "unathorized entry" into the US a "breaking of the rules" [misdermeanor] and simply deports the offender instead of assesing jail time. Repeat offenders can be tried on feleoy charges and can do prison time. This the greater leeway, the government does not have to try an alien, and can silpy deport.


Murder, rape, and the like, are State crimes and are classifed as criminl law. There are feredal criminal crimes, but immigration laws are not in this classification. In a criminal case the state is assessing prison time and must try the case and afford the accused a defense[lawyer]...regardless of immigration status, as stated in the US Constitution.

This is the main proplem with the new State Immigration laws that are being passed. The state is criminalizing "Unathorized Presence" in their state. In doing so, states will have to ejudicate the cases; and if convited the alien will have to do jail time. In trying the cases as criminal, the state must follow all the procedures of rights and laws. Unlike the federal government[becaquse of leeway], they will have afford the accused all the rights guaranteed by the constitution...If the Supreme court rules, whether states [in fact] have the right, to write immigration laws.

The attitude just blows me away. She was here illegally, her sister and bil gave her a place to stay and when she wore out her welcome she repays them by setting fire to their apartments.

I guess she was just showing her "family values" that should make us grateful she chose to come to this country.

I am well aware of the difference between immigration and criminal offenses. Hopefully, this will soon become a “right” denied illegal alien scofflaws. Let them pay for their own damn crimes. We have been screwed enough.

And, had she not committed this crime, she would have been considered among the millions of illegals “deserving” amnesty. Lord only knows how many ticking time bombs illegally reside in this country.

If they admit they are here illegally, yes. Why should we allow them to stay. Send them back to "their country" and let them commit whatever havoc they want there.

Or doing one of those jobs Americans (or in your case Australians) won't do?
