I just heard last evening that the intruders shot and killed by a Houston man recently were both illegal aliens. The intruders robbed a neighbors home and the Houston man went outside and shot them both. It's a shame this whole thing happened. The report I heard also said that both illegals had a criminal record and had been deported previously. Another example of why we need to close our borders. Two men dead and a third that may be going to jail.

I can't believe it. WOW.

No way they are EVER going to bring charges against this guy for shooting them. I didn't think they would before I knew they were illegals but you can be pretty sure they won't know that this is out.

2 border guards got prison for shooting a drug smuggler.... They should have shot to kill and saved themselves the hassle. That individule just got arrested for smuggling drugs again.

The Ramos/Compian case was federal - this is a Texas state case - they guy will most likely be hailed as a hero.

He is a hero. He killed 2 criminals, with a history of criminal behavior. I myself probibly wouldnt have shot them unless they came at me in which case they would most likely be just as dead.

I'm sorry, but I just can't support the guy.

He went into his NEIGHBORS house and shot the guys. If they were in HIS house, I'd consider him a hero for protecting his domain, because there's an automatic presumption to fear for your life when there are intruders in your own home .... but I don't believe in killing to protect "stuff"... especially not your neighbors stuff (unless the neighbors were being held hostage at gun point, etc.).

He's not a hero, but I'll give y'all the argument that had border enforcement worked, these burglars would still be alive in whatever country they came from.

Not just ILLEGALS, crittersitter,

but, according to FoxNews, COMMON CRIMINAL DRUG SMUGGLING PREVIOUSLY DEPORTED ILLEGALS living in Houston . . . A SANCTUARY CITY!
