SDRR: Our country does some seriously stupid shiat.


Like deporting illegal aliens? How, again, is that seriously stupid?

I remember in college, this hmong refugee in the next town over (ca central valley, super impoverished town) was depressed and bored, so her neighbor, a nice american guy, gave her some petty cash to while her days away at the local indian casino slot machines.

Lo and behold, she wins the jackpot. This confused, shy, illiterate chick with literally no concept of money, immediately loses her welfare, food stamps.

Seriously farked things up for her and caused a hassle for her friend too, I think he might have been her sponsor, and sponsors are financially responsible for immigrants, if not refugees. wonder if they were able to get her back on welfare after she used up the winnings?

Not surprised, have had a winning at a casino in Reno go back to the casino, I was about 4 months before my 21st birthday at the time and was a little over $800. At the time I had been going to the casino's there and in Boloxi MS for a couple of years. Sure it wasn't legal but as long as I was loosing less than $500 or winning less than $500 against them they didn't seem to care.

Then again I actually made alot of money off of the casino's between drinks and meals for roughly nothing and probably over the course of three years lost around $250, just was pissed that the one time I had fairly significant winnings on my little pile of money they decided to say no not yours.

FTA:

"Valenzuela's identification checked out but that police determined she was in the country illegally, The Arizona Republic reports."

"... but she was released because she qualifies for the Obama administration's deferred-action people for young people."


Who writes this garbage? I fear for the English language.

Came for vatopult reference, leaving satisfied.
FYI, when you're deprted, I'm all in favor for the middle of the gulf, or somewhere in the pacific, IMHO.

nope, just the part of Austin taking advantage of illegal workers... which is an extremely small portion of the economy. The rest of us will get along just fine, thanks.

I worked in a casino for a while, and it was interesting to see the people who would bolt for the door upon hearing the slot "hit" for a big one.
"Self Trespass" is for life, and you will get arrested if you get caught in any casino in the state.
So these people still play and hope for small wins where they don't get identified.

Slappajo: racist


Racist? Hell, there are tons of Yaquis south of the border as well, not just that little patch south of Tucson.

/Mrs. Fool is Mexican, and has both Yaqui and Papago blood.

The casino could have withheld at a rate of 30% and issued the winnings immediately. There is no reason for them to be dicks about it. The government still gets their money.

On the other hand, if they gave bogus SSNs when they went to the window, they committed a bunch of felonies. Yes, this would be on top of illegally being here. However, this really not an issue with the casino. They don't have to have a valid SSN, but they do have to withhold 30%.

Hispanic people were involved. And as many in this thread have pointed out, everyone who works at an "Indian" casino is 100% Native American, a people famous around the world for their racial intolerance.
 
2013-01-05 02:00:24 PM  
Correction: 28% backup withholding.

The casino was dumb. It should not matter; they should not alienate any of their potential customers.

Champion of the Sun: But her ID was valid. If you're dark skinned and you win, they're calling INS on you. Pretty dirty even for a casino


That casino is owned by "dark" skinned people as you put it and most like 95% of the employees there qualify to fit into your description, dumb ass.

A Mexican woman was deported last month because of her illegal immigration status after she and her daughter won a $1,200 jackpot at a Tucson casino.

/What's the big deal? She's in the country on a illegal basis. Why should she profit from it? You don't see me sneaking into Mexico and demanding full rights. Why should she be different. Wanna change the law? Fine. Do it. But until then the law says she out.

/Tired of the whining of people who sneak in and then act like we owe them full rights.

Yep, all people of color are indistinguishable, even from each other. And no person of color is racist or xenophobic, that's onl for the whites. And Native casinos are run by Native people. I'd be surprised if 5% of the people that worked there were Native.

Illegal alien gets identified and deported? I'm ok with that

I go there all the time, Mobys is the bomb when it comes to getting the seafood basket! The Pascua Yaqui tribe hires from within the tribe before they will look at any other applications when a position needs to be filled. Unless your implying that natives are lazy and wont work? But yeah be ignorant and just assume things and make up stats to make things fit to your made up view of the world if it makes you feel better.

Actually if you knew the make up of CBP and Border Patrol in this area it was a very good chance that it was some Hispanic Americans that did the deporting.

I didn't know you had to be a US citizen to play at a casino.
