An 80-year prison sentence for Raul Gomez Garcia can't begin to make up for what's been lost.

Reports say that Det. Donald Young's murderer declined to be present during sentencing because he didn't want to hear the anguished testimony of his victim's widow or former partner. If I was the judge, his ass would be front and center. In this case, I'd even record it and have it piped into this dude's cell each night to lull him to sleep.
Rot in hell, mofo.
It's just a shame the rest of this fucker's life is now paid for by taxpayers. Will Denver bill Mexico back for the cost to house and feed him for the next 80 years? Will this country ever get seriously about border blocking those not worthy of our hospitality? I'll betcha 13 bucks marked with 'M's we wont.
Even the President has finally acknowledged it.
In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security by Tom Tancredo, U.S. Congressman, Colorado
Many Americans were shocked by the rhetoric and demands voiced during the immigration protests in the spring of 2006. From Los Angeles to Atlanta, from Phoenix to Chicago, an estimated two million protesters marched in more than fifty cities. They demanded a blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under the banner of “immigrant rights” and insisted that rights now afforded legal immigrants should be granted to those here illegally. Anything short of that was condemned as “racist.”
How could the United States have come to such a pitiful condition?
Congressman Tom Tancredo has been the only consistent voice in our government warning Americans of the dangers of failing to secure our borders and fix the nation’s immigration system. Five years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, the U.S. Government still has done virtually nothing to secure America’s borders. The government largely ignores the threats to our safety and sovereignty resulting from its refusal to fix a broken system.
What is happening on our borders is one story, but what is happening within America is even more disturbing. As would-be terrorists plot attacks on our country, vocal advocates of multiculturalism are sapping our strength from within. Together, they form a potent adversary that is as great a threat to our nation as anything we have faced in our history.
As a result, America is in the midst of an identity crisis. As a nation we no longer seem to know who we are or what we believe. Instead of “one nation under God,” we are divided, confused, and angry. We need to understand how this has happened and the underlying causes that have brought us to this divided point.
Tom Tancredo lays out the case that unless the United States changes course, it is head toward catastrophe. Like the great and mighty empires of the past—”superpowers” that once stretched from horizon to horizon—America is heading down the road to ruin. Without strong moral leadership, without a renewed sense of purpose, without a rededication to family and community, without shunning the race hustlers and pop-culture sham artists, without protecting our borders, language, and culture, the nation that was once the “land of the free and home of the brave” and the “one last hope of mankind” will repeat the catastrophic mistakes of the past. In Mortal Danger is his prescription for beginning to repair the damage.
