Horrible story. Maybe in 10 years when he gets out of prison, he will be eligible for Obama's Amnesty plan for illegals and he will be able to stay.

@ Obama10: It would be nice if you understood the law before you commented on it. Felons are barred from participation.

Felons are barred from participating in Obama's amnesty plan for illegals? How do you figure? Every illegal is, by definition, a felon because they committed a felony when they came here illegally. I guess nobody is actually eligible for Obama's plan then.

@ Brave Sir Robin: Entering the US illegally has a incarceration sentence of not more than 2 years (8 USC § 1325) making it a misdemeanor, not a felony.

However, for clarification, the proposed legislation (notice the key word there - legislation - Congress is involved in this discussion, for the record) does clearly state that individuals (such as the guy in the story) who have been convicted of committing violent crimes would not be eligible for citizenship. Which, coincidentally, also applies to those who have entered the US legally.
