HuffPo – Praq Rado, an undocumented actor from Albania, was arrested by an immigration official on his way to a screening of “Dreaming American,” a short film about his journey to America. East Hampton Patch reports that Rado, whose legal last name is Radoina, was nabbed on a train in Buffalo while traveling to the East Hamptons Film Festival on Thursday. Lee Percy, the film’s director, said he was wary of Rado appearing at the festival, even though the actor has lived in America for 11 years. “I tried to warn him off, but he was excited about this festival,” Percy said. “If he is sent back to Albania, not only will he be separated from his loved ones forever but his now public persona may further endanger his life,” the post said. “Albania may have officially proclaimed support for freedom of ideas, but the everyday possibility of persecution and death remains very common and very real.”
Got to love the way this dude plays the illegal alien game. Not just hiding out sneaking around like a pussy like the rest of the illegal aliens. Doing it big and makin moves. Fuck the police, I came here to live bro. Seriously you ever taken Spanish class in high school and watched that movie “El Norte”? Where they like crawl through sewage tunnels and almost die 100 times and get ravaged by the environment then finally make it here and live in disgusting slums and always have to watch their back and fight for work just to put food on the tale etc etc. Fuck that! Praq Rado hopping on the first Jitney out to the Hamptons to live it the fuck up. Filming some blockbusters, getting them in film festivals, making a name for himself. The Albanian Spielberg popping champagne with bitches in bikinis. So what if he got caught and shipped back to Albania where he will never see him family again and will probably be stuck in a labor camp or executed? Totally worth it for a shot at Palme d’Or at the East Hamptons Film Festival.
