Ernesto Avalos should have been given the death penalty for his cowardly attack on his employer. This case is another example why California must enact laws to protect citizens from illegal aliens who are invading our country, most illegals come from primative uncivilized regions of Mexico where murder, violence, thievery is very common.They cannot live in an orderly society.

We'll just spend a million trying and housing him where he'll get better healthcare than most Americans. Typical American solution these days. 100 years ago it would have been a speedy trial and a rope.
