The fight to end illegal immigration doesn’t stop at the border. There are hard-working Americans doing everything they can to keep us safe. Yet the left does everything in their power to undermine our government, protecting illegals and giving them a free pass.
It’s this tendency, to coddle and protect perceived victims and minorities, that makes conservatives furious at liberals. If we are to all be treated the same, why protect criminals? Why treat them differently, even better, than legal citizens?
We may never know. But one widow is learning that even judges go easy on criminals, if they are from south of the border.
Margarito Quintero Rosales fell asleep at the wheel and crossed the center line of the highway, striking a vehicle driven by Collin County volunteer firefighter Captain Peter Hacking, Breitbart Texas reported in April 2016. Quintero also killed Hacking’s four-year-old daughter, Ellie, and his 22-month-old son Grayson in the crash. The illegal alien was not licensed to drive.
Shortly after the crash, KRLD radio reporter L.P. Phillips contacted immigration officials and learned that Quintero is an illegal alien who had been deported in 2008. Police arrested the criminal alien at the scene and officials held him in jail until his conviction…
The widow expressed her feelings of the loss of her husband and two children.
“I miss their kisses,” she told the interviewer. “I miss everything about them on a daily basis.”
She went on to express her shock at being re-victimized by the justice system that will let Rosales go free after serving a two-year sentence for three deaths.
Quintero received a credit for time served of more than 500 days before his conviction, the Dallas ABC affiliate reported. His jail time will be completed in a little longer than 100 days…
I guarantee you that if Rosales had been a legal citizen, he would have been sent to jail for the rest of his life. He was guilty of killing a father and two young children. On top of that, he didn’t even have a driver’s license. All of the crimes he broke would have been compounded on top of each other, to ensure he would never have seen the light of day.
Yet because he is an illegal, he only got two years. Most likely, he will only serve 100 days in jail.
This kind of mockery of justice is what drives Americans to demand immigration reform. This man was in the country illegally. He wasn’t even allowed to drive. Yet he not only flaunted our immigration laws, he took the lives of three innocent Americans.
How is he not properly punished? What message is that sending to the rest of the country? How can a judge do that and not feel shame?
This is why we must keep fighting illegal immigration. Otherwise more lives will be lost.
