So did I, apparently illegal aliens are exceptions to the rules and the rule of law.

A jailed illegal immigrant in Georgia is the rightful owner of a $750,000 lottery ticket, a jury decided Thursday.
The Macon Telegraph has an excellent write-up on the tale of suddenly rich but soon-to-be-deported Jose Antonio “Tony” Cua-Toc, 27, a native of Guatemala who entered the country illegally in 2000.

Amazing how illegal aliens are exempt from our laws and rules isn't it?

The first person in California to win The Big Spin was an illegal alien, and the court ruled he was entitled to keep it.

Interesting. Can someone buy lotto tickets, who isn't a US resident, from out of the Country? If so they should be allowed to keep it. I feel that if they are here illegally then they shouldn't be as they've already broke at least one, if not many, of our laws.


Why have age limits then.

Notice how illegals only care about honesty and laws when it's them being harmed by the law-breaking of others but they have absolutely no concern whatsoever of the person whose ID they've stolen and they certainly have no use for any laws that inconvenience them.

Noted. Other people don't seem to care though as long as it's not their jobs, or IDs, being stolen.

Guess they wouldn't care about rape or murder either, long as it's not happening to them.
