This is the FOURTH time he has been arrested for a felony? I say deport him IMMEDIATELY and stop wasting my tax dollars on an illegal immigrant who abuses this country and its residents! He should have been deported after the first offense!

@ Mrs. B: Better yet, use our tax dollars to pay his homeland to keep him jailed there. Should be cheaper than keeping him here. And also not as nice.

It makes more sense to at least have serve time for his offenses prior to deportation. The revolving door of deportation isn't the answer. Securing the boarders is.

At least he's taken to stealing healthier beverages. If we're going to be paying for his healthcare for the rest of his life, and it seems we are well on track to be doing so, I would prefer his cholesterol be under control.

Reporters should get their facts straight. The problem at hand is not immigration, the problem here is drug abuse. For you see, this man is not an illegal immigrant, he is a California born and raised who's been in the jail system since his teen years. Reason for that is methanphetamine use; well, there are many underlying reasons but the one behind them all is drug abuse. This man has been using since before he turned a teen and his parole officer at the time knew that. My question is why won't they do anything about it? This man is unfamiliar with life outside prison walls so he finds comfort within the streets, and that's what the streets provide. The system is aware of this yet nothining outside of parole phonecalls once a month is provided. People like this need guidance, regardless the age, or the cycle will only continue. But go ahead and keep blaming the immigrants.
