One of the most controversial hot-button issues raging in America right now is that of illegal immigration. Liberals, true to form, are totally for allowing folks willy-nilly into the country without a single care of who they are or what they have done in the past.
The problem, of course, is that tons of violent criminals have been leaking into the country as a result of our nation not enforcing its immigration laws, leading to drug problems, welfare fraud, and violent crime running rampant.
A good case in point is the story of a teenager riding his bicycle who was killed in a hit-and-run where an illegal immigrant was behind the wheel. This is becoming a regular occurrence in our country and it’s time to stop tolerating it.
Miguel A. Ibarra Cerda, a 21-year-old Mexican national who was working at a Burrito King in the area, pleaded not guilty to reckless driving causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
Cerda, driving a Honda Odyssey minivan, struck 14-year-old Justin Lee as the teen was riding his bicycle. Credo was reportedly driving in excess of speed limits and was on the wrong side of the road when he hit Lee. Witnesses say he sped off immediately after the accident.
Police tracked down and arrested Cerda in Lansing, Michigan, and they believe he was trying to get back to Mexico.
Lee was a student and football player at Walled Lake Western High School. He had dreams of attending University of Michigan to play football and study forensic science.
Is it really all that surprising that Cerda was breaking the speed limit and then ran off, leaving the victim to die in the street? Of course it isn’t. This man didn’t even respect our laws enough not to cross the border illegally. Why would he have any sort of respect for our other laws?
This sort of scenario is becoming more and more common, which is a shame on us as a country, as we have placed the rights of illegals above those of citizens, which simply isn’t right.
This doesn’t mean Americans are anti-immigration. On the contrary, we want folks of every nation and culture to come here and contribute to making America the best country in the world. We just want those folks who desire to be part of our society to respect our laws. That doesn’t seem like a whole lot to ask.
