    It seems a tourist can get away with just about anything in little England. If this is the picture we are painting for our youth, we are heading over a cliff in our system.

    Seagul. Wouldn’t it have cost more to keep him here for 3 months. Around $9,000.00 or deport him at $1500.00. Do not be p nay wise and pound foolish.
