Now this is so funny that everybody forgot to laugh ..

An illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet got a $145,000 parting gift from New York City taxpayers before he was deported, after city lawyers decided his civil rights had been violated when he was held too long on Rikers Island.

Former Brooklyn resident Cecil Harvey, 55 -- backed by an immigration-rights advocacy group -- argued that his rights were violated when he spent more than a month in a Rikers holding pen before being transferred to ICE.

And we wonder why Bloomberg is crying that the city needs more money.

Surely our hard won (by our ancestors) rights are for citizens and legal residents only.

I'm rapidly becoming convinced that our entire legal system has been hijacked by dangerous, treasonous crazies.

Isn't it standard procedure to hold someone without bail if they skip out on a court date, have a warrant and have multiple previous arrests? Is this yet another example of the two sets of laws we have in the US with a lenient one for alien criminals?

Absolutely! I wonder how many citizens have been awarded six-figures for being detained too long. I would venture to say, none. Illegals continue to make fools out of this country.

This alone is motivation for an illegal to take advantage of our system if they know a financial payout would come their way.

After all, why actually work for anything? They claim to just want to work but if they can take this shortcut, Why bother? Just come here illegally, get arrested and sue for thousands of dollars! A lawsuit that is brought, by the way, using pro bono US attorneys paid for by the US taxpayer for the "poor mistreated' illegal. They don't have to lift a finger, we're doing it for them.
Now if every state would just adopt Arizona's law. Because we know our federal government is useless when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws.
We're not dangling a carrot...we're handing over the whole da%$# bunch.
