People in the media continue to question why Donald Trump’s plainspoken language resonates with the American public. Most say racism. They’re wrong. Day after day, American citizens are treated to horror stories about illegal immigrants flouting the law and visiting tragedy on hard-working, law abiding Americans. The latest is as raw and disgraceful as it gets:
An illegal alien who hit a Texas firefighter head-on and killed him and his four-year-old stepdaughter and 22-month-old son will be charged with criminally negligent homicide if he recovers from his critical injuries.
The man did not have a drivers license and was in the country illegally, according to the CBS affiliate for Dallas/Fort Worth. He first came to the U.S. in 2006 but was deported in 2008.
L.P. Phillips of KRLD radio in Dallas spoke to ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials who verified that Margarito Quintero was an illegal alien.
CBS DFW reported that ICE officials had no contact with Quintero until the accident.
Section 19.05 of the Texas Penal Code provides that “A person commits an offense if he causes the death of an individual by criminal negligence.” This offense is a state jail felony.
The North Texas volunteer firefighter, Captain Peter Hacking was hit head-on by Quintero. The 36-year-old father leaves a wife, a son, and four stepchildren.
While wonks debate whether or not laws protecting our border are effective, ineffective, racist, or whatever, the federal governments wanton disregard for the enforcement of our immigration laws is destroying the lives of innocent Americans. While this family attempts to pick up the pieces in the wake of this unspeakable tragedy, Obama and his cronies at the Library of Congress are working to remove the term “illegal alien” from the public lexicon, and border patrol officers are being hindered from the performance of their job. Is it any wonder why voters are furious?
