I will cry for that fact that our govt would rather take care of illegals than their own citizens (whimper!)
a few tears for those kids in newark who got their heads blown off by illegals (tears drop!)
and i'll cry for the future of our country if we don't do something about these illegals (bawling profusely!)
oh yea a few more tears for our military and veterans who sacrifice/sacrificed their lives so our government can stab them in the back by accomdating these illegals.

Yes, I would've called no matter who was driving. As a professional in the transportation industry, I've made numerous reports to police over the years....reckless driving, smoking dope while driving, drinking and driving.
Today I was a victim of road rage when a white guy who lived up the block gave me the finger and then threw his shoe at my car when I confronted him. He later apologized when the police showed up at his door.
I can't make this stuff up. Frankly I don't care where people are from, as long as they act responsibly.

Sorry, I don't have much fear about retaliation. If we all thought about the risks of doing the right thing, we'd be pretty bad off. As it is, I feel immigrants are taking advantage of our hospitaility and using the benefit of the doubt for their personal gain.


Maybe the drunks thought that pablo-me was an illegal as well.

Man, that's really funny.

If we all fear retaliation, we'd be in a completely lawless society. As it is, I feel many immigrants are benefiting from our openess to other nationalities, and selfishly taking advantage of the letter of our laws, social welfare and educational system.



Oh by the way, this happened in Aurora, Colorado where they have a major illegal alien problem.

Good for you! I don't know how many times I haven't gotten justice for something that illegal immigrants did just because they pretended not to understand the law or speak English. For instance, by little dog was almost killed by two huge Akitas several years ago in Reno, and when I tried to go to their door to tell them about it and ask for payment of veterinary bills, all I got was "No speak English" as they hid behind their door. My dog is permanently disabled because of what happened. For God's sake, act civil or get out! (And that goes for everyone.)

this post raises some excellent points. what is the purpose of calling them immigrants when it is impossible to have any foreknowledge? the meat of this is that they were driving drunk. white, black, asian, or latin, it is a crime and that is the important thing. bringing race or immigration status (which is in no way foreknown) just clouds the issue and shows a very disturbing mentality towards people of different races/cultures.

Drunk Driving = Bad

Assuming people who speak Spanish or look Hispanic are illegal immigrants = Bad and very prejudiced

Let me clear this up.. I don't support Drunk Driving.. I also don't support racism.

I would of called the cops too, because of the drinking, and told the story without the hate message attached to it.
