No trespassing -- unless you're already here illegally

The police in Hudson, New Hampshire arrested a guy yesterday. He was spotted speeding in Nashua (right next door) in an uninspected vehicle and fled. Police found his abandoned car, which also had bald tires, near the town line. A little while later, Hudson police spotted a guy on foot nearby who matched the description. The deal was clinched when they found the Toyota's keys in his pocket.

Winner Drumond, 26, of Nashua was charged with disobeying an officer, driving without a license, speeding, non-inspection and unsafe tires.

But he's not being charged with criminal trespass. You see, Mr. Drumond is Brazilian, with Brazilian ID. But not a shred of evidence that he's in the country legally. No visa, no green card, no passport, nothing.

Federal immigration officials have been notified about his capture, and he's facing arraignment this morning on the local charges.

Anyone willing to take bets on whether Mr. Drumond will be released on bail, with instructions to come back in the future and face the charges? And, if he is, anyone wanna bet he'll show up for trial?

I thought not.

But he is a registered Demo... (Below threshold)
Lew Clark:

But he is a registered Democrat and voted for Kerry in the last election. That makes him a true American, even if he doesn't have any of those other silly papers.

I keep needing to be remind... (Below threshold)

I keep needing to be reminded to post about an article in yesterday's local newspaper. By today it may be online, which will make it easier (this paper doesn't do permanent online archives).

Upshot is, the county commission unanimously approved a resolution that could start putting heat on feds who prevent enforcement of immigration laws. It's written by the same guy who proposed the resolution binding the county never, ever to use eminent domain Kelo fashion. (And he was as friend of mine before he ran for the commission.)

You write this as if had he... (Below threshold)

You write this as if had he been a US citizen,
he would have been charged with criminal trespass.
Would he?
