    I can make useless statements too:
    Yes, your posts in this thread prove that you are quite correct.

    Yes, and they do that how? KNOWING AND WILLINGLY.

    Did this guy waive his rights to legal counsel from Mexico? No. It was the fault of Texas for not knowing he was there illegally.

    Failing to exercise his rights has the effect of waiving them. It wasn't important enough for him to even bring it up it trial, so apparently, the defense was not all that concerned about it.

    No it does not. Do you know anything about law at all? Because you are doing a great job displaying that you don't.

    Well that's bullsh!t. Besides, I thought it was a bad thing for law enforcement to look into someone's immigration status. Do you support the AZ immigration law now?
