I think he just was trying to help his country. I really don't think that you should not put him in jail because he is not a criminal or anything he was just trying to help some one who is from poor country. If you take some strong disition than only thing you should do is give him home jail and not allow to go his country for sertain years. I thik what ever he did is not any thing bad but he just make a mistak trusting that guy live in the motel for seven months that he broke his trust living there.
Use your head man. If everyone brought 8 illegal people to this country our population would be 2.7 billion. If this guy misses these people so much he should just leave this country and join them. As it stands now we should just fine him whatever his assets are and ship him back to India.

The investors visa es not easy t get, it takes money, and a dedication to becoming an American. He had the money, but when it came to that promise to hire 10 Americans, he had a plan how to get rich by circumventing the law and importing slave labor from his family back home.
The trial will be held, and by the time he gets a sentence ( 10 years is OK with me for deliberate slaving) he will probably get off light. But, his arrest woke up a lot of investor visa holders, you cant say one thing, but plan to do another!
I have worked with this guy for a long time and dude he didn't bring money to invest from overseas nor he came here on investor visa. This guy and his family have been working atleast 15-16 hours since last 15 years and still is. It's probably a mistake. God Bless Him... That's a lesson for everyone not to support illegal immigration.. hope he can get away with some penalties and don't have to go behind bars cuase his got two little kids..

You are insulting their religion now dude. Religions don't teach all this. Just one questions for you people. How did our ancestors came in the united states? I know my great grandpa came here from Germany without any Visas. If you see from the native american's point of view; we are all illegals. Our ancestors were hunting Native Americans, Killed 'em; how cruel were they. These illegals are not hurting anyone; they are just here so that they can feed their families. I think whoever is in United States right now should be given leagal status. That way we will get lot of Tax dollars that we can use to secure our borders to prevent any future illegal immigration. I don't think it's illegal immigrant that are taking our jobs. There are no jobs left for us Americans because all of our fellow american businessmans are sending jobs to other countries. Examples are GM, Ford, Chrysler, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, and many other companies are sending our white caller and high salaried jobs to Asian counrties. The illegals are mostly working the jobs that we don't want to do. Would you work as a Janitor for minimum wage? I wouldn't. Most of us Americans are well educated to get those jobs that are out sourced to other countries. So, it's us americans who are creating problems for our fellow americans not the Illegals. Let them eat two times a day dude. Afterall they are human beings.
God Bless America and people who truly love America.

What YOU THINK IS IRRELEVANT. What MATTERS is what WE, the people (law enforcement) think. And WE THINK he should be DEPORTED FOREVER.

The same can be said for many armed bank robbers, embezzlers, thieves --- just helping their families, trying to improve their lives -- so why call them criminals?

Why call anyone a criminal? Everyone committing any crime committed the crime because they thought in some way it would help them.

Just found this article and comments - I have known Ken (Kalidas) for several years. He's a young guy that got some bad advice on how he could help his family in India. He's been here in the USA since he was a teen and has always worked hard. I'm not condoning his attempt to subvert US immigration laws and I'm sure he would agree with you that it was wrong - otherwise he would not be pleading out.

His real crime is that of a bad decision. If we all knew the ENTIRE story we might find out this was a borderline entrapment case.

I think they need to look at all the local motel owners. Most of them pretend to be poor, their parents are collecting food stamps and are on public aid. They have thousands of dollars in the bank and yet milking the US government out of millions of dollars every year. I know for a fact that mostlocal motel owners take a low salary so they can get some sort of public aid. Yet their corporation makes $100's of thosand dollars.
If you are not a citizen of the usa you should get nothing
