"The students at Snowy Peaks are still stunned about the news about Leon Rivas, but theyre hopeful that immigration officials will do the right thing once they see how many lives their friend has touched. Deportation just wouldnt make sense. This was his home."
The right thing to do is enforce the law and deport him.

I love how no one says anything about the fact that he is a Gang member, just a little sentence they want us to over look. Just because someones friends and family tell you someone is a good person does not mean it's the truth, they have a little bit of a bias. Lets see if he has committed any crimes as a gang member and ask his victims if he is a good person (maybe the guy he robbed in California). In life you have to suffer the consequences for your bad decisions. Maybe you should not have been a gang member who victimized the people of this country and you could have stayed. By the logic expressed here every gang member who is in this Country Illegally, just needs to get a large group of friends and family to say he has changed and is a good person and then they can stay. There is a reason that the symbol for the justice system is a women blindfolded and holding scales. The courts weigh the facts not opinions to determine someones punishment. The Colorado courts made their determination by looking at the facts and handed down a state punishment and now the Immigration court system should do the same, not release him because his family and friends requested it, there is no justice or accountability in that.
