    Spain to punish 'barbaric bakery'

    A Spanish bakery accused of barbaric behaviour towards an illegal worker will face "the full weight of the law", the government has vowed.

    The statement comes amid shock over the case of a Bolivian worker whose arm was cut off in an accident at work.

    Bosses at the bakery in Valencia are accused of dumping him 100m (330 feet) from the hospital entrance and throwing the severed limb in a rubbish bin.

    A Spanish trade union has lodged a complaint against the bakery.

    I agree 4now except new immigrants with less than 5yrs as a PR could be screwed. In theory they should have a sponsor who would support them but that doesn't always happen ie. divorce etc.

    Court Upholds Cuts in Aid to Noncitizens Who Are Old, Blind or Disabled
    By NINA BERNSTEIN
    Published: May 15, 2009

    Thousands of impoverished elderly, disabled or blind legal residents of New York State, including refugees, will be limited to $352 a month in public aid — about half of what lower courts have said they should get — under a decision by the Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court.

    The 5-to-2 decision, rendered on Tuesday, overturned the rulings of two lower courts, which had held that under the state and federal Constitutions, such legal residents could not be denied a higher level of benefits simply because they were not citizens. On narrower grounds, the high court held that the state had no duty to fill in for a federal program that had stopped benefits to most disabled legal immigrants in 1996.

    High court tosses ID theft conviction of immigrant

    By Bill Mears
    CNN Supreme Court Producer
    WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Supreme Court on Monday threw out an illegal immigrant’s conviction for identity theft, saying the government had not proven the defendant knew the documents and Social Security numbers he was given belonged to someone else.

    The justices unanimously sided with a Mexican national arrested in a government raid on a Midwest work site. He was sentenced to an extra two years in federal prison for “aggravated identity theft.”

    “In the classic case of identity theft, intent is generally not difficult to prove,” wrote Justice Stephen Breyer, speaking for the unanimous court. “We conclude that (federal law) requires the government to show that the defendant knew that the means of identification at issue belonged to another person.”

    CNN article
    What hogwash... They knew it was not theirs because they did not have one. Make a law that covers the situation. make it a felony too.



    Yet the courts will happily convict us for "receiving stolen goods" when you purchase something that you had no way of knowing that it was stolen.
