I know the guy who was robbed, he is the sole seller of fruits and vegetables at Mile High, all the other sellers out there have to buy from him, with the exception of farmers bringing in their crops for a single sale time. Yes, he's Mexican but many years removed from coming across the boarder. That's neither here or now, the point is that he was robbed, and the police need to catch the bad guys. All sales at the market have to collect sales tax and they supply envelopes to figure out the percentage and pay. It's a honor system, but if you sell every weekend and pay nothing, the computer will kick out your name and spot for investigation.
As for the illegal aliens now in this country, first of all, you broke the law by crossing the boarder, if you get caught, it's America's laws that are going to see that you get removed. Any American President needs to exercise the authority that two other Presidents did after World War 2 and the Korean War, that is to remove any and all undocumented aliens, that's all Latinos, Mexicans, Chinese, Europeans and anybody who does not carry proper identification as required by existing law.

These stupid comments would not have been written if the victim was a white a** vendor. It's incredible how the fangs of discrimination come into play when actually this was a person trying to make a living.
As compared to many that plainly refuse to work, i applaud Gonzalez. I am in no position of question his legal status but as a human being, no one deserves this.
It seems like too many people are running scared for fear of losing their jobs to those illegals. Don't worry, if you have a decent job, they are no competition for you. If you work long hours in the hot sun for minimum pay,maybe. If you plan to apply for admission at Harvard, maybe. The illegals' children are not settling for any less. No I don't like it either. That's just reality.
Reality is that he was ripping off America too..His business is a cash business and he wasnt clamming all the cash made..He got ripped off by his own kind...Hispanics....What makes you think Color had anything to do with anything..I would say KARMA had more to do with it than color..You racists are all alike..And for some reason a hell of a lot of you are from Texas..Try Not Attacking people to make your point if you want civility in the races..Dont make it worse with your racists comments..Sometimes you should stop and think...Should I really post this insult to good Americans..You are in Texas and have no business commenting in such a way in Colorado..You are the problem...You people will rip off your own kind and scream racism...How stupid are you...?????

I used to go to the Fle market every day it was open, best hooters in town on a hot summer day, but the guys who are fresh over the boarder and hit that market, they are really weird, they buy those cheap cow boy boots that are the same color as the belt and they are the original 'bug stompers' they have a pointed toe that sticks out about 2 inches beyond where your toes are. Then they buy a straw cow boy hat (matching hat band to boots and belt) then they roll the sides straight up. You can spot these idiots a block away.
