If he bought the ticket he deserves to win the prize.

I hope he is deported as soon as he picks up his slimy check!

Also, I hope that they deduct any welfare payments made to he and his family, medical, run a fraud check on any documents he may have used and give him a jail sentence, deport all family members, AND BRAND HIM WITH A HOT IRON ON HIS FOREHEAD!!!

Complete the thought, Juan:....pay the taxes on the prize, repay all entitlements/free education/back taxes that he owes, and GTFO. Shouldn't have been here in the first place to buy the ticket unless it was bought while on a guest visa, which I highly doubt.

We're not giving in, Juan. The party is over. We're taking our government back, and if you don't belong here, you're getting the fuck out. And if you were born here but neither of your parents had any business being here at the time, we're going to go through the proper channels to fix that, as well.

why reward him after all every dollar he has in his pocket was stolen from a citizen.

Ritz....Ha! If you are born in this nation, you ARE a citizen!

You may not like it, good! It will take a constitutional amendment. As a veteran of our great military who fought for the rights and freedoms of every citizen, I will take a very tough stand against such madness!

Good luck in wasting your time!

If you are born in this country, you are a citizen of this country!

You may not like the fact that there are citizens born to so-called illegal aliens, but they're just as much a citizen as I am.

It amazes me that a high school civics or constitution class eluded so many!

This guy thought he could get over on a non-citizen. It backfired on him and now he owes more than the ticket is worth.

Good for him. Let this be a lesson. Don't try to cheat anyone! If you try to take advantage of someone because of their circumstances, just know that sooner or later it will come to light.

This is so much more than about someone's legal status in this country. Glad the jury saw it that way!

He deserves the winnings just as anyone else. Who knows he may have been on a visa. I think they should not take out any taxes.

Many of you sound jealous.

he is lying and some dumb court took his word.

No, he wasn't lying. That was proved beyond a reasonable doubt in court. Just a greedy greedy individual trying to take advantage of someone. He tried to get away with it but American jurisprudence said "Heck No!"

This indeed sounds like not only jealousy, but just plain hatred.

Anyone should have to pay applicable state and federal taxes on lottery proceeds. But it would be very interesting to see in such a case as this because usually lawsuit judgements are not taxed.

Happy hating!!!

It's no surprise that you don't think he should have to pay any taxes. That's the trophy-mentality entitlement-driven way of thinking that's gotten us in into this mess.

You're right...if it is applied as it is written, you must be born of at least one individual who is "subject to the jurisdiction thereof"...which is to say that they are in the country under the law of said country...not in violation of the laws of said country.

You can't take part of it and not ALL OF IT. Once the Constitution is upheld to the letter of the law, the citizenship of said persons will be revoked.

F Ritz, you need to dust that constitution off and try reading it.

Your interpretation of the 14th amendment isn't necessarily correct, and at the very least it is not universally agreed upon.

And it certainly does NOT say what you allude to. You say that it says...

"you must be born of at least one individual who is 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof'...which is to say that they are in the country under the law of said country...not in violation of the laws of said country."

Here is what the citizenship clause reads...

(Amendment XIV, Section 1, Clause 1)

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

You paraphrased the amendment to fit your reasoning and then you offered your interpretation of your paraphrasing. If you offered that as your defense in court, then a first year law student would offer a motion to dismiss and the first year judge would immediatiately dismiss and censure you for wasting the court's precious time. More experienced jurists would do a lot more to you!

"...and subject to the jurisdiction thereof..." refers to the person being born, not the person's parents as you allude to!

For you to achieve the result you'd like, it would require a constitutional amendment. The process is quite difficult (as it should be).

You would need two-thirds of both houses of Congress to approve and then two-thirds of the states (34) to approve.

Good luck with that! And please know that you can't fool all the people all the time and some of us NONE of the time!

Trust me. I understand why you're a fucking moron and can't interpret the Constitution correctly. They've been putting sodium-fluoride in the drinking water since I was a kid...and I avoided it as you obviously have not. These FUCKING PARASITES are not in the country under the laws...they are in our country IN VIOLATION OF OUR LAWS...no matter how you try to twist the truth. There are LAWS that say that they shouldn't be here, but the federal government refuses to enforce these laws. That doesn't mean that they aren't relevant. It just means that they have family members and friends that ARE in the country legally, and the administration wants to pander to them for votes...just like '08. WHERE IS THE AMMESTY THAT THEY WERE PROMISED? It's in the same spot in limbo that it will be for another four years of the current administration: NOT HAPPENING. Ever feel like you've been cheated?'Cause you have. So vote for whoever you want to, and once someone is in that ISN'T seeking a second term, we can start shipping them back. Kind of a win-win for us this time around. LOL. Enjoy!!!

F ritz...

First of all the name calling is not called for. You need to expand your vocabulary. I am a decorated combat veteran with advanced degrees. Been studying government, public policy and politics my whole life.

If everyone who disagrees with you deserves to be called what you speak of, GOD help us. But I know better. I stand by everything I wrote because I know it to be true. Unlike you, I'll be more judicious in what I say you are, as I believe you to be misguided (and more, it seems, than just on this issue).

Yes, I agree, there are laws that are not enforced. But that's nothing new. There are state and federal laws in many different areas of society that are not enforced.

And no, I don't feel like I've been cheated at all. And Who I'm voting for? Don't know where that came from.

My purpose in this life isn't dependent on who is in the White House or what political party is in charge of Congress. While those positions hold enormous power, my Creator has so much more dynamic power and My future is intertwined in His!

So go ahead and call me whatever names your heart desires, I sleep well at night. God bless you.

My vocabulary is quite expansive, and of you're looking for proof, I'm a songwriter...so you can check it out for yourself:

...and while we're at it, my I.Q. Is 143, and it's been documented. So go re-read the amendment and get over yourself.
