  • Their we go a illegal that are gonna give three meals and a cot for the rest of his life .All because. He got over the reo grand .

    • Wow…..you may want to learn to spell and use proper English before you post about “illegals”. He did an awful heinous act but that is no reason to be racist and make assumptions

    • FYI both are Hispanics, born in California!

    • Hello Mogtx, I just wanted to point out some things to help you, because you are apparently having trouble using English. Their=shows possession, they’re=they are; a illegal=incorrect, an illegal=correct; The phrase “All because.” is not a complete sentence. Finally, reo grand should be capitalized and spelled “Rio Grande”.
      Oh, and the racist remarks really show your true self. You need to learn a few things in life as well as the English language!

  • Oh boy that wall just got taller

  • Just so you two know, this guy isn’t a illegal. He was born and raised here in Ukiah. This is an example of what Meth does to you, not illegal immigration. Quit being ignorant.
