Personally, I think that he should be given a trial.
If found guilty, he should have to pay his fine, do his time and then immediately be deported.
I think that he should have to wait a minimum of 5 years before he would be eligible to get a visa to come to this country legally.
Anyone not a citizen can't ever immigrate here if they have a felony conviction here or even in their own country. At least that is what I have been told by immigration officers. They would never be given a visa either for being a past criminal.
I agree he should be prosecuted just like anyone and then deported.

Someone, PLEASE give me a legitimate answer as to why local police and other agencies should NOT be allowed to deal with these guys/gals directly and get them out of here. What reasoning could you possibly come up with when the stop was legit, the arrest was legit, the lack of citizenship CONFIRMED, and he/she IS caught doing criminal deeds? You don't need to be a "fed" to check the status of citizenship....that is called an excuse by the Government to make the rest of the populace actually believe locals can't enforce this BS!

I fully agree with Arizona's new Anti Illegal bill, the Illegals have been raping our Economic ,social and medical systems for decades this needs to be stopped and as to the so called constitutional rights no were is it stated in our constitution does it give invaders rights and the fact that they feel that Arizona ,California ,Texas ,Nevada ,and New Mexico belong to Mexico they have felt this for decades ,they feel we should speak Mexican and i am not Spanish as it is not true Spanish as they are not from Spain the Mexican spoken to day is a bastardization of Spanish.
I hope Other state take up bills to stop Illegals.

If a person is doing something that is illegal and gets pulled then they put themselves in that situation to be checked over. The problem I have is I am a black man and I have been pulled over just for anything like switching one lane without a signal or just any minor thing just so that the cop can ask are there drugs or guns in the car. These laws are not going to be a problem for white people because they will not be the target of being pulled over for any minor thing with the hope of finding drugs or being illegal. Blacks had to deal with the War on drugs as a reason to be pulled over and now AZ gave another reason for none white people to be pulled. What you will see are now more random check points go all over AZ. Yes something has to be done and I only hope that LEO's do things the right way instead of trying to force something to happen.

...Case in point. I mentioned on another thread that the other day I stopped a 2009 Ford Mustang doing 89 in a 55 and the driver happened to be "hispanic". Now the driver could not produce a valid drivers license, BUT handed me these awesome FAKE International Drivers Licenses they get for $50 here in Atlanta. Now after a few checks it was confirmed he was not licensed to drive the vehicle so he was arrested. Now, this driver is 24 years old working at Tyson Chicken driving a $30,000 car...ok fine, but then while searching his person I find a Social Security Card in his wallet and the card ended up being stolen and this scumbag was using and DESTROYING the credit of an elderly woman in the area, while he was thriving. Anyway, the car was impounded and I charged him, taking him to the jail. So I ask you folks...as a LEO KNOWING (100%) that this guy is not only a criminal...he IS an ILLEGAL alien from Mexico...should I and my State have the power to make sure he is deported back?...

EDIT TO ADD: He had NO passport, NO visa, NO nothing....and yes he did admit he paid a coyote $200 to come across somewhere in TX....
