This guy gets 2 1/2 years for building a drug tunnel into the U.S. and for the possession of 1,000 pounds with the intent to distribute, while cancer patients get longer than that for growing a freakin' plant!!
Where's the fucking justice???
A Mexican man has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in federal prison for his role in a secret tunnel that was used to smuggle marijuana across the border to the United States.
Antonio Morales Barrios told a federal judge Monday in San Diego that he regretted his actions. He will also lose his legal residency.
Prosecutors say the 41-year-old was the caretaker of a home in downtown Calexico that housed a tunnel used to smuggle drugs from Mexico to California.
Morales pleaded guilty in May to possession of more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute.
The tunnel discovered in September 2006 is one of at least 60 found along the U.S.-Mexico border since 2001.
