    “….I’ll bet that he is illegal too.” He is indeed. The Collin County Jail shows to have an ICE/DHS Detainer against him.

    All borders to the US need to be closed for immigration, escpecially our southern borders. All 3 wars need to be stopped as well, to help get our economy and debt ceilling back on track. More citzens with clean records having a CHL to protect themselves anywhere they go. That is what it is all about, people.

    how about leaving Condolences for the family. immigration had nothing to do with this, people make stupid choices there are many legal americans in this country that make these same stupid mistakes, some cases even worst killing their own brother.

  8. roadgeek says:

    Illegal immigration had everything to do with this. This murder may have never occurred had Romo not been in the country. Condolences for the United States of America; being overrun by 3rd World savages…..
