    I am completely disappointed with this guy, know him very well, and not, he is not illegal, I work around these guys all the time, they are very hard working people and of course bad apples exist but in all races,. I think we all Americans need to live by example and I know we tired of all this but let’s vote in the right officials in office and this will get better,

    I know this guy from work, he is not illegal, just because you are Hispanic, it does not mean you are illegal. There is enough crime of all races in this city. We should be praying, he has had a lot of personal issues. Yes to all of these comments ,, you are racist and should be ashamed, and glad Jesus was never like any of you or we would all be damned. Pray for him, pray for our leaders, pray for this city.
