‘I never would have imagined getting that call,’ she tearfully recalled. ‘Never in one million years expected that.’

On Tuesday, the driver, Anna Gonzalez, tearfully entered a guilty plea for causing the fatal accident as Robinson looked on, a button with her dead son’s photo pinned to her pink shirt.

The grieving mother then showed the judge the many bills she has had to pay in connection with the accident scene, even though her son was not at fault.

You would think that they would make the illegal alien killer foot the bill. Just when you think you've read it all with regard to the criminal acts of illegal aliens American tax payers are still expected to foot the bill.

Illegals won't pay for anything.

I'm sure the pro-illegals will be along shortly to tell us that a) Americans drive drunk so you can't single out illegals for driving drunk and b) the real problem is that illegals can't drive legally and should therefore be given driver's licenses. The test should obviously be administered in Spanish to make life as easy as possible for people who live here and can't be bothered to learn English.

No the real problem is that employers continue to hire illegals, luring them in... Until that is fixed, yes I think an illegal should get a drivers license and have insurance. Certainly would have helped here...

You would think that public services would clean up the accident scene on a public highway. But it's South Carolina.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Just because someone gives you an incentive for committing a crime does not absolve you of responsibility for committing it. Illegals aren't children and should not be treated as little kids incapable of following laws. Illegals should either go home or take the bus. Give them a driver's license and you are essentially giving them residentcy and all other kinds of rights including the right to vote. An American driver's license should be reserved for American citizens and American citizens only. Anyone else should be allowed to drive only if they have foreign driver's license and legal permission to be here.

What would have helped is the criminal not coming here in the first place. It's bad enough he thumbed his nose at our laws. It's inexcusable that he came here and killed someone through his own horrible actions. We have enough home grown criminals. We don't need to import anymore.

I suppose you think we should let him serve his time and then grant him American citizenship?

Yeah silly me. Thinking that someone should actually obey our immigration laws. We've got six billion people in America. Oh wait. We don't. Because most people don't do that. If they can't immigrate here iegally they don't just hop a plane or sneak in here.

It's not okay to break our laws. It's certainly not okay to drive on our roads without permission and kill our citizens. Stop treating illegals like stupid children. The reality is that people obey laws they don't like all the time. Illegals have no excuses. Your first act when applying for citizenship (which is what they're doing) should not be to break multiple American laws.

If American citizenship is that desirable we certainly shouldn't just hand it someone with a DUI and a GED in Spanish who has been in violation of many important laws for a decade or two.

Your solution is enforce and deport right? How many years will that take? We need some stopgaps..

Obama has managed to deport over 400,000 people. Once we make it clear that you will not gain anything if you come here without permission many others will leave as well. But handing out amnesty and driver's licenses to make life easier for illegals will only increase the number of illegals.

Your solution is amnesty. That punishes the American public for something we didn't do. It ignores our wishes and hands us the bill for the economic desires of what is largely Mexico's dysfunctional underclass. That's cruel.

The person should not have been here. Illegals should not drive on our roads. Doing so should be a deportable offense.
