so he worked hard, too bad there is not an avenue for these folks to become citizens.


It would have been nice to have additional information, like where did he work, how did he survive in Havasu for so long. Was he a good contributor to society.

"Was he a good contributor to society?"

Well he's alleged to have stolen someone's social security number and victimized a citizen, which led to fraudulently receiving a driver's license, fraudulently filing court documents, etc.

So I'd say no, he wasn't a "good contributor" to society.


He owned a moving business here in Havasu
