Pretty soon the ACLU will be on this case. They will confer with their client, and soon he will be a media darling. They will come up with a scenario showing that he "didn't do anything wrong" .. and is, in fact, a victim of the Bush Administration's never-ending "war on people living in the United States illegally" (or is that "without papers?").
Soon, the ACLU will have a $1T lawsuit in the mill, claiming that they will settle if the City drops all charges, gives their client $20M, a key to the City, makes him an "honorary citizen of Menlo Park" and fires all of the police officers involved in his arrest.
Yep .. time to bring on the clowns .. er .. make that the ACLU.

I doubt that the above scenario will happen. There are a number of undocumented criminals who quietly & frequently deported. You generally only hear about them IF the ACLU or similar get involved. If media reports are accurate, there's no reason for the ACLU to get involved. Of course, the reports may not be accurate and/or don't include all relevant details. Anecdotally, my recollection of ACLU involvement here in EPA has been for legal residents having problems w/the police. Maybe you know of local cases that do focus on ACLU helping undocumented criminals - hoping you share info if you do.

Well, don't do the crime if you can't do the time!
