A federal appeals court has ruled that the U.S. cannot deport an illegal immigrant who is a "habitual drunkard."
In a 2-to-1 decision by the western 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the judges decided the condition has been wrongly equated with poor moral character and instead is a medical disease.
The ruling rendered Mexican citizen Salomon Ledezma-Cosino, considered a "habitual drunkard," not eligible for removal from the U.S. Medical records indicate he drank an estimated one liter of tequila a day for a decade.

How much driving does this guy do?
I want to know who paid for his lawyer? Really, the cost to get to the 9th Circuit Court was very large.
We’ll probably have to pay for his liver transplant also. /s
To solve the problem, there must be a great purge....... not of the illegals but of the leftists
America can’t exist with their presence
Starting with the judiciary. I know...but I can dream.
Pretty PATHETIC, and they want to know why people don’t respect the rulings of the COURT. They are all crazier than the perpetual drunk. It has nothing to do with his legally being in the USA, there is plenty of tequila in Mexico for him to continue his career.
While I don't necessarily agree with the "disease" model of alcoholism, why should it matter? Why can't we deport a illegal alien with a medically untreatable disease which creates an extreme danger to those around them? .
9th Circus strikes again.
It seems to me that the cheapest solution is to set him up with free tequila for the rest of his life. it won't be long.
How I hate the 9th Circus
How many more deaths will it take?
So BusTED has a drinking problem, too? #TedScrews
What I want to know is why can’t we just deport him because he is illegal?
Wait ‘til the 9th Circus learns that Athlete’s Foot is also a disease.
Just one more blatant act of treason by liberals. Bottom line, any foreigner who sneaks into this country is an enemy of this country. Ergo anyone who is giving him aid and comfort is committing treason.
18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
What part of ILLEGAL alien do these F-wits not comprehend? I don't care if he's perfectly healthy or not: he's an ILLEGAL ALIEN. Deport him. End of story.
Give us your tired, your drunkards, your diseased, yearning for welfare, Obamacare and free Obama phones ..
Thank you for reminding me never to vote for trump.
