Pedro Zapeta: Dishwasher or Dangerous Immigrant

** Update: On 6/23/08, the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to set a new hearing date to determine what dollar amount dishwasher Pedro Zapeta should be required to forfeit. After hearing agruments form Robert Gershman, the attorney representing the financial side of Zapeta's case, the Court determed that Judge James Cohn who presided over Zapeta's original case used an incorrect standard to set the amount Zapeta was required to forfeit.**

Talk about killing an ant with an anvil. That is exactly what the United States District Court and customs agents did to Guatemalan immigrant Pedro Zapeta. He left them no other alternative. Zapeta was a greater economic threat than $100 a barrel oil or a sub prime mortgage. He knew how to retire on a minimum wage salary and had to be stopped before his secret spread to credit card crazed consumers. (more...)


Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensedregistered pharmacist". (because somebody gives a damn)

Very sad. It almost seems as though the government saw an opportunity to score some quick cash and figured who would be less likely to complain about it than an illegal immigrant? Besides, that's like 5 $10,000 screwdrivers they can buy! Now, I don't endorse or condone illegal immigration, but in the grand scheme of things the 'wrongs' committed by this man are insignificant. Especially when contrasted with the boondoggles and illegalities perpetrated by our so-called government representatives every day.

On June 23, 2008, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the judge who fined Pedro Zapeta applied an incorrect standard in determining the amount to be forfeited. The appeals court ordered a hearing to set a new fine. CNN Full story.

As of Saturday, June 28th, CNN's Rick Sanchez was reporting that authorities he contacted where reporting that they would not be appealing the Circuit Court of Appeals decision, so after 3 years Mr. Zapeta will finally get back his money.

Mr. Zapeta had already paid taxes on the money and all but $5000 will be returned according to attorney Robert Gershman. Counselor Gershman who represents Zapeta on the seized funds also helped set up a fund for Pedro Zapeta after authorities seized his money and some $15,000 was received in donations.
