    Response to above reply. These are the only kind of people that Andrews can hire. Everybody knows white people are not stupid enough to work in this shit hole for this so called business.

    He most likely was here on a work visa, hints why they were able to garnish his wages. A valid work visa does not mean he is a permanent resident, or what all you people would think of as a green card. With a work visa they are eligible to get a drivers license, which he clearly had lost due to previous charges. Work visas can be taken away as “easily” as they are given out. Anyone can be sent back to where they came from if they are not abiding by the law. And a 3rd owi will absolutely send you back. Permanent residents, “green card holders,” can also be stripped of their rights here if thry are not law abiding, and be sent back as well. They are not free and clear of anything, even if they apply for citizenship, which few and far do, they can also be stripped of thay in serious measure…inside terrorism, murders, etc. Everyone thinks they are so educated about the system, when in reality not many people in this area actually know the process.

    They could take care of this problem by making E-Verify mandatory for every employer in Iowa. And slap big fines on the ones that hire them. They might deport themselves. Unless Obama can get them all on welfare. He would do it if they voted for him. He already gave thousands of them a work waiver to come and steal more jobs and have babies.

      Thanks for the link. E-Verify is only as good as the paperwork you are given.

    wow… i am so glad i am being literally being raped with taxes on my paychecks so people like this fine example can be here illegally, drain our welfare supply, and endanger our lives by driving drunk. I wonder how many fines he has yet to pay for his prior 2 owi arrests. stuff like this makes me sick

    Did this guy have a legal green card in 2002? If not, why wasn’t his employer reported to ICE. I think he must have had a legal work permit of some sort in order for them to have a garnishment order for a paycheck. If not, he should have been deported and his employer would have been in trouble and possibly raided by ICE. And why is there an ICE hold now? Did his green card expire or was his status ignored before? I have heard that they get deported and come back to the same jobs within a few weeks. Is this guy still at the same job? And if so, and if this guy is illegal, why was he given a job that an American needs? I just want more information if it is available.

    Obama wants to keep them all in the country long enough to vote. That is why Eric Holder was trying to sue Arizona for there use of voter ID.

      If you look at their careers section it looks like this guy in the picture and they claim to make forms for highway projects. Isn’t it illegal to use illegal aliens for government contracts?

    He should just ask his lawyer to send Obama an email. He will get his citizenship and a BMW under this Administration and you and I will pay for it. GO OBAMA 2012!

    More of the same need your help and entitlement. Spread the wealth to those that do nothing! THAT’S the type of country we have to look forward too.
