Mistake costs dishwasher $59,000

Have you guys read about this story ?

An illegal immigrant worked as a dishwasher for $5.50/hour for 11 years. He saved $59,000 and wanted to bring the savings back to Guatemala for good. However, he did not know he has to fill out a form declaring he has more than $10,000 with him. Now all his money were taken by the U.S government.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/09/27/imm...ney/index.html

Actually this article is wrong in that, he did pay taxes. All charges against him had been dropped by the judge. The only ground they have in taking the money from him is that he did not declare the money when boarding the plane (by law, the government has right to take all the money because of this).

I don't know about you, I am absolutely furious about this.

If anyone wants to help him, you can go to:

The Government stealing money at airports is nothing new.

If you think this is bad, you need to learn about asset forfeiture. Or how the TSA can keep you from being able to travel without you seeing the evidance or having any recourse. Then there is the matter of a Chief Executive who claims the power to declare you an “enemy combatant” without due process.

One of these days the sheeple of this country will wake up and realize that they are in a police state.
