Illegals involved in crashes, traffic stops, say authorities
My buddy David is jus gunna loveeeeeeeeee this one!
"Four vehicles loaded with 42 suspected illegal immigrants were involved in separate accidents early today on highways in Eastern Colorado, authorities say. Two other vehicles were stopped on the Western Slope, with more suspected illegal immigrants inside.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in the process of arresting each of the suspected illegal immigrants, Wynn said.
At 6:35 a.m., a 1995 Ford Econoline carrying 16 people rolled on U.S. Highway 6 near Brush. No one was injured in the accident and all 16 occupants were taken into custody by immigration officials, Master Trooper Ron Watkins said.
At 7:11 a.m. on Interstate-70 near Seibert, a Chevy Suburban rolled with 10 occupants aboard.
At 8:03 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush a 1999 Chevy Suburban rolled with four occupants. Some of the passengers had minor injuries, but no one was taken to a hospital, Watkins said
At 8:19 a.m. on Interstate-76 near Brush, a 1998 GMC van with 12 occupants rolled. No one was injured, he said.
The series of accidents happened as a stream of illegal immigrants are entering the U.S., mostly from Mexico, at the beginning of the growing season, Wynn said."
OK...May I delicately point out:
Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.
Illegal Immigration is a Crime
"Apologists for illegal immigration like to paint it as a victimless crime. But in fact, illegal immigration causes substantial harm to American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population--the poor, minorities, and children.
Illegal immigration causes an enormous drain on public funds. The seminal study of the costs of immigration by the National Academy of Sciences found that the taxes paid by immigrants do not cover the cost of services received by them. We cannot provide high quality education, health care, and retirement security for our own people if we continue to bring in endless numbers of poor, unskilled immigrants."
Well, ya best buckle yer seat belts now...they're on the roads...and from the way it looks...it's gunna be one bumpy ride.
