Seriously. I didn't setup an illegal business in a country I don't belong, where's my free money?

Article opens with two lies in one breath: citation was not "arbitrary" - Matias was the first unlicensed vendor caught and the others scattered; and once caught illegally selling uninspected food, "his cash" became part of his illegal operation and subject to confiscation as evidence - for which he was given a receipt in full view of the public filming it.

Too many rule-ignoring gypsies flooding across our borders, and too many clickbait enablers fueling their sense of entitlement to get ahead by looting our social institutions, are shitting up my country.

There is no difference between abandoning a law and anarchy. If you don't like a law, you change it. Right now, the law says you need a license to sell food. So motherfuckers who can't speak english and want to sell hot dogs need to get a fucking license.

I love how everyone used to complain about this being Civil Asset Forfeiture yet here you are with only 2 downvoats at the time of this comment. Apparently, less than 20% disagree with this now.

Because this is clearly not Civil Forfeiture. You can see bicycle cop writing up a citation and receipt. All Pedro has to do is present his illegal butt to his court date, and either show his permits or pay his fine.

"Forfeiture" is confiscation without due process.

Oh for fucks sake fuck off. He wasn't mugged by the government, he setup an illegal business and was caught. If he's being mugged by the government than we all are, he just illegally tried to avoid it while benefiting off of our tax money.

Cool straw man. But If it were an illegal alien running the lemonade stand then I would fully approve of it being shut down and them being deported.

My position on the matter is that government is the problem, over-regulating the most mundane of endeavours and then absolutely destroying anyone who does not toe the line is atrocious. The government needs to be as small as feasibly possible.

In another reality I would feel sorry for him, but in this one I do not. He votes for politicians that want to regulate everything under the sun. He stupidly thought that only meant rich white bankers. Now he realizes that it includes him, too. He should've read The Road to Serfdom.

That's alright, the government will take 45k of it too, the moral of the story is the government always gets there cut.

Illegal alien (unindicted felon) sets up an illegal business that pays no taxes and then send the money back to mexico to pay illegal coyotes to illegally get the rest of his family across the border. What could go wrong? I got an idea: Lets do a GoFundMe to give the unindicted felon 80 grand to help him. How fucked up is this?

I bet they even are good hot dogs. If they are that good, now that he knows the rules, maybe he will setup a legit business and keep going? I would compare this to moonshiners really. Just because people like it doesn't mean it isn't illegal.

Jump through the hoops and do it legally like the rest of us. I love a good hot dog as much as the next guy but when it comes down to it I'm going to support an American selling hot dogs.

He couldn't speak English. He has no business being here. Unless there are green cards for running hot dog stands?

Just because people like it doesn't mean it isn't illegal.

No, if it's illegal, it's fucking illegal. If you don't like a law, you change it. Otherwise it's just anarchy under a different name.
