On Aug. 20, 2008, authorities say Laurel-Vasquez and another man approached a group of 17 undocumented immigrants who had recently entered the U.S. illegally and were waiting at a prearranged location to meet a vehicle.

They say Laurel-Vasquez had a gun and tied up the guide and another member of the group, and ordered his companion to demand money from the illegal immigrants.

It doesn't get any more honorable when a criminal treats other criminals in such a noble manner.

This has gone on forever, in fact it started one of the first special Police divisions here in SD.

In another thread I posted a day labor business that is for illegal aliens, to get work.
You pick them up in the morning, and drop them back off there at the end of the day to sign back in, so they can get to come back tomorrow.

There is usually someone close by, to rob them of what they made that day. Stabbings happen all the time around that place and it is a Mexican National, the robber or the victim with injuries, that die or get hauled off for free medical care at Breckenridge Hospital, the city/state owned and funded hospital(they went bankrupt and the city said "we could not afford to lose that hospital, the oldest in Austin")

Even though it is a illegal on illegal crime, the taxpayers get to be robbed too.

I PERSONALLY know a man who, for many years, took illegals in, housed them on his property, and "found" them work. He also kept MOST of their earnings, doling out a small allowance when they needed it, but skimming most of it off for his own use. The threat was always there that if these folks complained, he (their 'patron') had friends in 'la migra' that would quickly deport them.

Several times, illegals I knew asked me for job leads. When I suggested THIS guy, they said "no thanks"...they knew him by reputation, and had no interest in getting involved with him, even on a casual basis.

The "irony" of the story?...This man himself came here illegally decades ago. He's now naturalized.

Illegals get it 'coming and going', and illegal immigration is a risky business, open to all SORTS of abuse, leaving the illegals pretty much at the 'mercy' of everyone.

Not a "good thing" at all....and no, this is NOT a 'pitch' for amnesty. THAT's not a good thing, either.

Did you report him to ICE/USCIS or in the past, the INS?

No...at the time, illegal immigration was a 'victimless crime'. Had I actually reported this, he would have KNOWN my identity, and the illegals would have 'scattered'. Most of his 'victims' apparently preferred their life under HIM, to their life at home....
