    Aww, why can`t there be some sort of legal exemption from holding creative people responsible for these sorts of misunderstandings due to creative people`s notoriety for having a really tough time looking into practical matters? Just give them a slap on the wrist and assign them a talent agent...that should take care of any misunderstandings.

    It`s a legit reason. He`s working in the US without a working visa.

    It sucks, but he should`ve been legal before going on tour here. Just because he got away with it in the past isn`t reason enough to be all pissed about getting caught this time around.

    Not that I don`t love this dude--I`ve downloaded all his stuff.

    He had a talent agent. An american run agency. The messed it up, be it accidentally or on purpose. Not the governments responsibility you, or the people you hire to protect your interests, know the law. Just to enforce it. What happens when the next agency representing another foreign talent does the same thing (intentionally or not). Just let it go since you let this one pass?

    I have no idea who this guy is. He could be amazing, and hopefully he makes it back here if that`s what he wants, but as far as I`m concerned there should absolutely be no special consideration given. It`s just music and video clips after all.

    So let me get this straight. He was working and making money in the united states without a visa to do so and he got kicked out. Noe he is complaining that he didnt know? Well, it isnt anyone elses responsibility to inform you of our laws. They are not a secret. You screwed up, albeit accidentally, but you still have to pay the consequences.

    Mel, don`t be dumb. Illegals living here have so much more to lose if they`re caught. They`re here illegally working building a life yet it`s a risk they`re willing to take for a better life and at any moment it can be taken away. There`s numerous stories of kids brought over the Mexican boarder as infants that had no idea they`re illegal until they`re deported in the middle of college.

    He entered this country with a wrong visa. HIS FAULT. If he didn`t know then he`s idiot.

    And for the record, what he does is literally the exact same as many illegals, they come her with a visitors or student visa and stay ILLEGALLY.

    I think what you mean to say are the Mexicans that the people on the TV tell me to hate.

    @MelCervini
    Undocumented adult immigrants are not eligible for any U.S. government assistance programs. Period. Some (really very few) do try using forged documents to get some benefits, but it`s rare as the risks far outweigh the minimal assistance they`re able to get. Most `undocumenteds` do everything possible to stay under the radar, they stay as far away from any and all government agencies as they possibly can.

    Who the f*ck is POGO? Did he say he remixes music and movie clips and gets paid to do it? Why the f*ck would anyone want to pay to see that in the first place?

    On a serious note, you need to stop whining Mr. POGO, you`re the one that f*cked up. A "visa waiver" is not a "work visa." In order to legally work and make money in other countries without becoming a citizen you need a work visa.

    Also I`ve known people who`ve done similar things. Depending where you`re from it`s easier to get one type of Visa verses another.

    I can guarantee you that he couldn`t or intentionally didn`t want to get a work Visa, maybe he`s getting paid in cash in most places and doesn`t want taxes taken out. That`s why he freaked out when he realized he crossed over to Canada.

    He knew he would be departed.

    He just flew too close to the sun and got burned.

    Pogo is a genius. I remember when he got busted a couple years ago--I was confused about his bust then, I`m more confused about it now.

    Here`s one of his best remixes though: Pogo remixes Lord of the Rings.

    You should all be ashamed for not knowing who he is.

    No. I would be ashamed of myself if I did know who he is.

    I`ve heard his stuff and he`s very talented-one of the greatest of our time, but genius in our modern lexicon is like literally... over used and incorrectly used.

    I don`t know POGO, but I love That One Guy. He opened for Buckethead at a show a few years ago, and they ended up jamming together. Epic, almost lost my mind!!!

    Here`s your choices.

    1) Become a star. Not a "played a club here and there" guy, or even an internet sensation. I mean, a STAR. Stars get special treatment - individual treatment - which is niiice....

    2) Visit a tanning salon for about 3 weeks straight, learn how to wade through water and find a map of El Paso. Hola, Señor.

    @ Fancylad We should all be ashamed for not knowing who he is? LMAO! I could stomach about 10 seconds of the link to "one of his best remixes" you posted. Never heard of the guy!! Been too busy following inportant stuff - like the manslaughter trial of Randy Blythe (the singer of Lamb of God). Who gives a sh*t about remix and Pogo??!?

    Jesus, I don`t know about how people should be ashamed for not knowing who he is, but when did so many dicks show up on IAB? I feel like the comments section is turning into the CNN boards. Pogo does make fascinating music whether you enjoy it or not, and I hope he finds a loophole to get around this, it is after all, the American way!

    Most know Pogo for

    Should have applied for the correct visa.
    But a 10 year ban is ridiculous. Should have just allowed him to apply for a new visa.
