Judge: Drunk Driving Illegal Immigrant’s “Unique Cultural Background” Makes Him Incompetent to Stand Trial For Killing a Man


It never ceases to amaze me & they want to give them driver's licenses?

My suggestion? Anyone pulled over who is not a citizen, here in this country illegally, should have the car confiscated as evidence for the criminal trial, "aiding and abetting fugitives". No matter who owns the car, unless it was stolen.

That will solve one problem. Now, the next...this guy is competent enough to come to this country illegally, he is competent enough to be on trial for breaking laws.

When will the madness stop?

It won't. It's all downhill from here.

They can never assimilate to our ways but also cannot be deported back to the country they do understand?

Capitalists will do whatever they can to avoid a "labor shortage" which might mean needing to raise wages to attract workers. As such, you will never see an end to immigration or enforcement of illegal immigration laws, they want everyone desperate for a job and fighting over each and every one. If they can have an exploitable underclass outside of formal protection laws, even better. If ever there's a threat of it becoming an employee's labor market they will open the immigration flood gates, formal or informal, to prevent it. That's why American wages are stagnant and will remain stagnant forever, general upwards pressure on average wages will never again be considered an acceptable situation ever again by big business.

There is no labor shortage, however. We have 23 million Americans out of work.

I wish I could argue with you but; you're right.

Tho either big business will start playing ball again or we're gonna see the labor battles of 100 years in the US again IMHO.
