Ken’s Comments:   This article was sent by our friend Steve Hampton, Esq.  Oh, it is not just one isolated judge. This is one of thousands of similar cases which happen every month, all over the country. Remember, about 600,000 people enter our prisons every year, and about 2/3 of them, 400,000, are being sent there for violation of probation or parole, often for minor infractions, technical violations (10 minutes late for curfew),...

Ken’s Comments:   tRump knows what immigrants are for: you hire them to do the hard work, and then declare bankruptcy so you never pay them!
