Had that illegal alien NOT been here; the kid that got killed might be here in 2014. I agree 100 percent about our American crooks; we def DON'T need more her in the US. Sheesh!

But by that logic, if the person driving had been a US citizen, you might as well say, "Had that guy's mother not f_____ that guy's father, that guy wouldn't have been here, and that kid would still be alive." It doesn't wash.

It's both. I know you don't want enforcement of federal laws, but this is real serious.

Not a good analogy. Citizens have a right to be here.

The majority of Americans are required to have auto insurance.

Definitely what I saw in El Paso.

It is both as illegals drink and drive and do not carry insurance at disproportionate rates.

My father in law was hit and badly injured by a drunk driver. It was a hit and run but they caught up with him later. He too was an illegal without insurance.
