Criminal illegal alien, with a driver's license, in possession of guns, and working illegally:

Quote:
...The father "was irate," the affidavit said. "Maher told his son that they would have to leave again and threatened to kill the person who tipped the police off about his identity.

The Feds found four illegal firearms in the home where he was apprehended. Several other people were at the home, and were soon identified as family members, Nixon said.

He was charged with being an illegal alien in possession of firearms and was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, where he is being held without bond...
Of course his employer, and those U.S. citizen family members that sheltered him, should be prosecuted...

I thought Missouri was supposed to have strict illegal alien laws?...

Wow, hiding in Ozark no less. Didn't look like he was enjoying the spoils of his theft. I have to wonder if the OP even watched the linked video. It does not even appear as though his son knew about his father's past. That hardly fits the description of "sheltering" a fugitive. I feel sorry for his son finding out this way. No doubt he'll be extradited to England to stand trial.

I watched the video twice, in fact...

He was arrested for are being an illegal alien here, and the article reveals it is completely unknown if he could still be charged for his crime in Great Britain...

YOu did read that, right?...

His son had to know his own father was an illegal alien, and his excuses of his father's criminal behavior are revealing...

Why do you state the son had to know? He changed his identity before coming to the US and lived a double life. You presume an awful lot. That kid just found out his entire life has been a lie because his father has lied about who he is to his son for the entirety of his life. What you see as excuses I see as a son in shock and total disbelief not knowing who his father is or who he is.

What the son did NOT know is what his father allegedly did and was a fugitive.

Do people in Ozark need to arm themselves? Why would there be firearms in the house? It seems crime runs in the family since the son said that his father was always bailing him out and the father was bailing him out of jail when he was arrested.

Yet we have read several stories whereby a parent here illegally did not tell their kid/kids that they are here illegally. Only in adulthood did they find that out. That is the claim by many Dreamies.

Maher: we don't want you here. You're an illegal alien, a violent criminal and your son, if he's also an alien he needs to go away too. Let England deal with you.

People in Ozark are well armed, not to worry. And yes, it would seem the sins of the father have been visited upon the son.

Yes they should be prosecuted -- but it was his criminally minded son who actually got him caught because it was when he went to bail out his son that he was himself caught. Like father like son I guess.
