    so we are gonna put him in a cell in america with American things. Basically he’s going to a place ten times nicer than Mexico and we get to pay for it? that seems like a pretty raw deal for the real citizens. How about you deport him or you execute him? using American resources for a non citizen should be illegal in and of itself.
