I continue to be amazed at the blatant disregard of our immigration laws. In the article June 4, "Fishing arrest faces legal challenge," Arturo Corso is concerned his client was jailed for fishing without a license but apparently isn't bothered in the least by the fact that this man is an illegal immigrant who has already been deported once from this country. Where is the outrage by this attorney for this federal violation?

I am married to a legal permanent resident of this country, and I can confirm that all legal foreign residents must carry with them at all times proof that they are in this country legally. They are required at any time to provide this proof and if they cannot, are subject to fines, arrest, and deportation if their legal presence here cannot be confirmed.

I would also like to point out that an ID made by a local church, as was described in the article, does not count.
