  1. Jose sounds like an oppertunist. I would not be surprised if he were hied by La Raza to make a point on behalf of illegal immigrants, while throwing this man under the bus.

  2. Jose...if you WERE here illegally, you don't have rights. No rights. Rights and constitution belong to U.S citizens, not people who break laws and break the line at all costs to enter this country unlike my family and I who waited years to attempt than reattempt coming here from Asia.

  3. Get all you can out of him and Pinal County Jose, he and his ilk have made life here in Arizona for Hispanics awful, legal or otherwise and, you are part of the blame as you knew he was a bigot and yet, chose to be his top stud until he decided to cut you off sexually and I would guess with money too, but, that said, glad he's squirming in a vat of his own self made issues, like using County phones and pc's looking for trade and tricks.

    Just waiting for more of Paul's exes to come forward, and, I'm sure there will be plenty of them ready to give the 411 on Studboi0.

  4. Yet again the comment section of this site turns into KKK message board.

    Sorry to break it you racists, but even if you're in the coutnry illegally you are still protected by the constitution on this country.

  5. Babeu, if you did nothing wrong, what do you have to be afraid of? It's not like someone's going to be abusing their power on you during the case, right? If you didn't continue a relationship with this "illegal," or threaten to have him deported when things didn't go your way, don't lose one minute of sleep over it... However... (lol) GOP, republican, Arizona, ... it's not looking so good.

  6. The racist come out in droves. Maybe you should try reading the facts before you spew your bigoted views. Jose is not here illegally. He has a visa, which means he is here legally.

  7. @, illegal immigrants don't have American rights based on American laws, because they broke the biggest law in the American legal system. I and many others, including liberals (which I myself am one) do not entertain the idea of illegal immigrants being in this country. They drain it, and they are also not beneficial for the fight toward LGBT equality. Their views are often extremely religious and uneducated, so I stand against illegal immigration with millions of other Americans.
