How come he walks away with only $250 bail? With no license he mostly was an illegal alien, but of course it seems they are above the law and walk away from things most citizens would be locked up for. How much more can we stand? Why aren't they being turned over to ICE?

That's my complaint as well, Mr. Pine - the illegal ALIENS (NOT "immigrants;" there is no such thing as an "illegal immigrant." Immigration is a LEGAL procedure. And, when you go through with it, at the end of the process, you get DOCUMENTS! Yes, that's right - DOCUMENTS! There is no such thing as an "undocumented immigrant," either! Sorry, had to say it, since Patch's authors seem to regularly abuse the English language for their own political purposes) are seemingly given the lightest slaps on their wrist even in the case of serious felonies, instead of doing what ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH WOULD DO when it finds a criminal who has ILLEGALLY entered their nation and committed crimes, which is DEPORT THEM, POST-HASTE! Instead, the police let them go. Caught drunk driving? Well, if you were actually a citizen you'll be treated to the full force of the law - You will pay fines, go to jail, and have the rest of your life ruined. If you're here ILLEGALLY, the police usually SIMPLY LET THEM GO. Try this sometime: Go down to Mexico, overstay your visa, and then go out in the streets clamoring for free schooling and benefits, and DEMAND that the State conduct their activities IN ENGLISH, because dammit, if they don't they're RACISTS! I GUARANTEE you, the Mexican authorities will run a credit check on your family, calculate *exactly* how much they're worth, and THAT is the exact amount of money they will extort out of them if they ever want to see you again.
