It wasn't convenient to stop the car and free the poor guy, just like it wasn't convenient to apply to come here legally.

These people are told they can do whatever suits them, commit felony document fraud, identity theft - whatever they please, whatever is convenient, and no laws apply to them.

I know, I know, a tree doesn't belong in the middle of the road.
Just like criminal illegal aliens don't belong in this country.

The dent wouldn't be there at all if the criminal illegal alien wasn't there either. Gateway crime.
So... you're not... answering... the question???

Same reason they don't bother getting insurance and why they don't follow immigration laws. They are being told they are above the laws.
So why is it that americans who don't get insurance don't get it, and why is it the ones who flee the scene of an accident flee the scene? Are they being told they are above the law?

The pattern of pretending this sort of behavior is unique to illegals continues. I know, someone will say "BUT WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT LEGAL PEOPLE" or "WHY ARE YOU MAKING EXCUSES". I'm not.

Right, and the people who want to keep america all to themselves (because hey, I'm already here, screw those guys that didn't get in before ME!) are just big old shining examples of loving thy neighbor and helping others.

Yeah. Again, a trait unique to illegal immigrants, right?

Any data showing they're prosecuted for these crimes less than citizens?

There you go again. You start with talking about how THIS ONE GUY is a scumbag and from there jump to talking about "these people" in the general sense. Pretty much the textbook example of bigotry.

As already pointed out, if the illegals weren't here, they would not be breaking our laws or be illegal. Trouble grasping that?

You haven't shown any link between their illegalness and their propensity to drive drunk. Therefore, kicking them out (and let's be clear, you're not talking about JUST kicking out the drunks, you're talking about all illegals, whether they have any history of DUI or not) isn't likely to have any effect on DUI rates greater than kicking out the same number of any other group.
You are correct. I haven't shown any link. But then, I haven't tried to. You are the one claiming no link. Let's see some proof of this. Or any of your claims, for that matter.

BTW, "any other group" of illegals, not just Mexicans, needs to be kicked out too. They are by definition laws breakers, no matter how you try to spin it. As for your claim of an attempt to "JUST kicking out the drunks", another one of your lying claims. No one but you has uttered those words, an you in a false context. Seek help.

This is why the entire premise is bogus. It's just an excuse to go on a witch hunt. It's the politicization of a tragedy.
This is why your entire argument on the subject is bogus. All you want is for something like the dream act to come along and supersede established laws in favor of the illegals.

Quote:
If I waved a magic wand and made them all illegal, and the same result occurred (which would be the case since their legal status has no link to their drinking and driving) would you still make this thread?
[/quote]

Again, delusions of grandeur. No one said all illegals are drunk, much as you try to claim they did. Also, if you don't know (as is apparently the case with all US laws) drunk driving IS illegal. Regardless of who does it.

If you understood this, would you still continue your defense of the illegals?

Love thy neighbor? You really are a hoot. Thanks for posting. I enjoy the comic relief.

A trait unique to illegal immigrants? Not really.....but it is a trait that is common with illegal immigrants.

As I said, deflection. And poorly done at that.

Just for fun though, chances are extremely good that this illegal that his your car has no insurance. This being the case, yes it would take longer to repair your car.

Even you should be able to grasp that
