Incidents such as this keep happening over and over and over and over and over again. It is appalling! Illegal aliens have been pouring over our border by the thousands every day, and have been for years. It’s been worse since President Trump made no bones about wanting to stem the tide, however. The illegals come in with impunity, probably with the knowledge that due to the sheer number of them they have a better than average chance of going undetected by USA authorities.
What really stinks is that so many times they come in, yet they never follow through with the steps required to become a citizen. The Democrat policies in place have made that all but unnecessary since they get free housing, free healthcare and thousands of dollars in doled out payments from sources towards which they have never made any contribution. I see it as typical of the mentality of many criminals. They’ve already dug themselves into a hole by being here illegally, so there is no deterrent to breaking even more laws. Even if they’re caught, the penalties are all but nil other than deportation, which is easily reversible with the porous border situation. The real losers in all of this are the American citizens who fall victim to these crooks.
In the following story, a family was decimated by the death of their father who was killed by an illegal who hit him, then ran.
An illegal alien accused of killing a father of two in a hit-and-run crash was ordered deported about six years ago, federal officials reveal, in the sanctuary state of Illinois.
Jose Rodriguez, a 27-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, is accused of running a red light on June 22 in Bloomington, Illinois, causing him to hit and kill 39-year-old Corey Cottrell, a father of two daughters, who was riding his motorcycle at the time and was on his way to see his mother, Kathy.
According to prosecutors, Rodriguez fled the scene of the crash after hitting Cottrell. The following day, the illegal alien turned himself into law enforcement officials and has since been charged with causing a deadly hit-and-run and driving without a license. Just days after being charged, though, Rodriguez was allowed to post bail and be released.
Prairie State Wire’s W.J. Kennedy confirmed with federal immigration officials that Rodriguez had been living in the U.S. as an illegal alien for years. Details of Rodriguez’s immigration history, obtained by Kennedy, reveal that in 2013 the illegal alien was issued an expedited deportation order.
The next year, on March 6, 2014, Rodriguez was issued a final deportation order by an immigration judge in a trial that he did not show up to, Kennedy reports.
“[Rodriguez] is considered an ICE fugitive,” a federal immigration official told Kennedy.
Cottrell leaves behind his mother, Kathy; his 11- and 14-year-old daughters, Karina and Alexandra; his sister Shanna; his grandmother Virginia; as well as his aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
So now you see what I meant. The alien was here illegally, got deported, and returned. He killed this man, tried to get away, but got caught. Justice? There won’t be any, in my opinion. It was preventable (if we had a decent wall he couldn’t have gotten in so easily), but the alien will never get punished in any meaningful way. The liberal lawyers that handle these cases have been known on many occasions to push for the illegals to be treated as if they have all the rights afforded to citizens – which the alien does NOT qualify for – and in the end, they get a slap on the wrist while Americans suffer needlessly.
