Blood On Their Hands



“It’s not an illegal alien story; it’s a drunk driving story,” Geraldo Rivera once asserted on “The Factor,” following the slaying of an innocent American in a familiar way. The argument made by open-immigration fundamentalists, left and right—from (Tamar) Jacoby to Geraldo—is that the illegality of the perp is irrelevant to the crime. These advocates would thus dismiss as redundant to the facts of the case the illegal status of “Carlos Martinelly-Montano, 23, whose Aug. 1 collision in Prince William seriously injured two Benedictine nuns and killed a third, Sister Denise Mosier, 66, all of Richmond.” (The Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Promulgators of this tack are serious, although they should not be taken seriously. For this crushingly stupid claim to stick, you would have to demonstrate that had this drunk, illegal alien been stopped at the border or been deported, his victims would have nevertheless suffered the same fate. AGAIN: For this conceit to fly, open-border fetishists would have to show that had Martinelly-Montano (and all the others) been deported or jailed, his victims (and all the others) would have nevertheless suffered the same fate at the hands of another drunk driver (murderer, child molester, etc.)—a deeply silly suggestion.

The Times Dispatch reports that,

Judicial Watch, a public disclosure group, said today that it has a received a copy of the report by the Department of Homeland Security that was kept secret after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had declared her office would thoroughly investigate the Prince William case and make it public.
The 35-page report deals with the criminal history and legal status of Carlos Martinelly-Montano, 23, whose Aug. 1 collision in Prince William seriously injured two Benedictine nuns and killed a third, Sister Denise Mosier, 66, all of Richmond.
Martinelly-Montano is scheduled to go to trial March 28 on six indictments, including felony murder, maiming resulting from driving under the influence and involuntary manslaughter.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said the report, which his group sought through a Freedom of Information Act request, shows how this country’s patchwork of policies toward illegal immigrants and deportation can “blow up in our faces.”
He called the report “a clear indictment of Obama’s lawless approach to illegal immigration. An innocent person lost her life because local police officers and immigration officials couldn’t be bothered to enforce and obey the law.”

In case you don’t know, Bob Clark, director of one of the most delightful films ever made, “A Christmas Story,” and his 24-year-old son, would probably be alive today if not for a drunk, unlicensed, illegal alien careening down Pacific Coast Highway (not that you’d know it from this report; which deploys the passive form of the verb, as if to imply that Clark combusted spontaneously, or something)

    Actually worse than the drunk drivers are women stalking murderers like Ingmar Guandique:

    The part about the illegal alien controversy that upsets me the most is the utter trashing of the rule of law (and mostly by those who are oath-bound to enforce it). How can University of Virginia give discount rates to an illegal Montano while an American citizen such as my grandniece would have to pay a much higher rate? How is it that Homeland Security (in the form of TSA) fondles 4 year olds where no reasonable suspicion or probable cause exists but doesn’t see that actual law violators get deported?? How do we have politicians who refuse to fence our borders or enforce immigration statutes then claim that Presidents can strafe foreign countries that do not attack us by whim.

    To top it all off, we have a War on Drugs turning much within 100 miles of the US Mexico pseudo-border into a Lawless free-for-all.

    America is abandoning the rule of law to the rule of whim.

    Who is perplexed by these events? Not I nor anybody else who looks at things with the slightest bit of logic. We, the American tax paying, bill paying public amount to nothing, just as long as the aforementioned taxes and bills get payed. To object to our country being turned into a third world war zone flies in the face of the politicians who want a new bloc of ignorant, and hopefully anti-American, voters who will help keep them in office permantly. Of course the perpetually guilty white weenies haven’t the backbone to stand up for the country or common sense and are willing to sacrifice our American culture, civilization and our very physical safety in order to assuage their guilt. I might mention their own families are in this mess too. What this country needs is leadership with the cajones to tell it like is, fight for the United States, not against the United States and the political smarts to overcome the liberal MSM to get his point across. I think there are enough regular people out here to carry it off. Close the borders, now.
