    Jose Lopez and his brother, Juan Antonio Lopez, owners of J&A Framers Carpentry Inc., entered the plea in U.S. District Court in New Bern, according to United States Attorney George E.B. Holding.

    News that is reported every day of each week, such as this news should be enough to gain support from all to increase steep laws against illegal aliens.

    No where does it give the immigration status of the brothers. If they are illegal everything they own should be confiscated as ill gotten gains! Everything in their wives or childrens names need to be confiscated as ill gotten gains, and I don't care if their children are "anchors".

    Screw the "supervised release", they must be deported! It does state these guys were born in Messico, send them back!
