In a story that expands upon the problems I highlighted a few days ago in my Governor Cuomo post, we now have learned that an illegal alien who had been previously deported twice is responsible for yet another needless death. As I’ve discussed extensively on this site in the past, the human cost of our government’s open border policies is incalculable, although there are several websites devoted to calculating just how disastrous those polices have been for American citizens.
Drunk driving and illegal aliens go together like a hand in a glove, so the fact that Johoan Rodriguez is responsible for Officer Kevin Will’s death should surprise no one. Neither should the leniency shown by our nation’s jurists towards other illegal aliens who’ve absconded from the law.
After successfully pressuring Governor Cuomo into abandoning Secure Communities, the next item on the wish list of the open borders lobby is reviving the disastrous proposal by disgraced former governor Elliot Spitzer to distribute driver’s licenses to illegals. In order to express your opposition, I suggest you contact your legisator directly. Here’s a link to the New York State Senate’s official website, and a link to their counterparts in the New York State Assembly. One of the factors that forced Elliot Spitzer to abandon his support for the asinine policy of investing illegals with driver’s licenses was public pressure. Conversely, one of the reasons Andrew Cuomo has taken his indefensible position on Secure Communities is because only one side of the debate is being heard. We can’t allow the discussion of immigration and criminal alien issues to be dominated by our opponents. They already have a virtually inexhaustible funding mechanism and control of the mass media. The only weapon we have on our side is the overwhelmingly support of the public, and we need to utilize that weapon effectively. Otherwise, we’re going to have to endure reading once again about the deaths of brave police officers like Kevin Wills in the future.
