Is this an "Illegal Alien Story"? Sadly, yes

I'm sure you have all seen the movie A Christmas Story, about Ralphie and his misadventures as he attempts to secure a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas. It was directed by Bob Clark, who is also famous for kicking off the teen sex hijinks movies of the 1980s with Porky's.

Bob Clark and his son were killed yesterday by a drunk driver in southern California. When I heard that over the radio, I will admit that the first thing I thought to myself was that the drunk driver was probably an illegal alien. Keep in mind that the news story on the radio didn't even give the name of the drunk driver; my guess was based totally on a gut feeling. Later on, I found this news story online, and lo and behold, the drunk driver was 24 year old Hector Velazquez-Nava, an illegal alien from Mexico.

Driving while being an illegal alien (DWBIA?) has been a story that has started to gain traction in the media as we see more and more of it. I even glimpsed one article recently that chalked it up to being part of the "immigrant culture" (?!)

But who am I to badmouth illegal aliens? They are all here to work and be productive citizens right? Right?

Good Day to You, Sir

Yes, this is tragic and some out there will defend this "piece of trash." How can we expect them to obey any laws of our country when they came to this country illegally in the first place? After you break the law the first time, it is much easier the second time around.

Give him the death penalty. That is all he deserves.

Is it O'Reilly or Hannity that's been on the case of the young women in Virginia Beach killed by an illegal alien?

And Virginia Beach is a sanctuary for them--the police will not seek them out or report them to the INS.
