Thankfully there were no other vehicles involved which is generally not the case with these frequent accidents directly related to Illegals.

In spite of their huge size, a Suburban even in the best of shape has limits and I believe 6 or 8 passengers is about it.

Many many thousands of taxpayer dollars wasted because of a bunch of arrogant disrespectful illegals.
There are times that the border patrol is chasing the immigrants and it can be quite dangerous for other motorists on the road.

[quote=malamute;4789113]I think your question should really be directed at the Mexican human traffickers who are responsible for all these deaths. We can be very thankful that no Americans were killed or injured by these people. They had absolutely no business on our highways and were risking the lives of many innocent people to commit their crimes.

Human traffickers are the scum of the earth and should be given far harsher punishment than they are getting.[/quote

I totally agree, they are no better than a pimp.

I've got a better idea. Keep them out of the country in the first place, using whatever means necessary. If they do get in and are injured, take them to the nearest ER, stabilize their condition (admitting them to the hospital for further treatment if necessary) and as soon as they are able to be transported, return them to their home country. Send the home country a bill. Tell them either pay up or we will deduct the amount of the bill from any foreign aid we give you.

By the way, you still haven't answered my question about how much in taxes a minimum wage earning amnestied illegal with three kids will pay.
I did not respond to it because it would be the same with the illegals or
legals.

Illegal immigrants pay rent don't they? Which in turn is paid by the landlord in the form of property taxes.

Sales taxes?

They may pay an inproportionate amount of taxes, but the myth that they pay zero taxes is just plain wrong.

Jesus f***in Christ, what a cold sentiment.

This may be hard to believe, but an American life is worth no more and no less than a Mexican life. I know you may think otherwise....

Illegals effectively by little or no taxes. That is a fact.

Food: 0 Tax

Rent: MAYBE a sales tax (many landlords don't collect one) - it this is the case - it goes to the city - and none (generally) is used for services for illegals

Illegals are criminals. They are violating US laws. They are invaders.

I care more for those who are LEGALLY here - than the criminals

RARELY if ever, Sassyone . . . in this case NOT.

This accident, as with the majority, was caused by extremely overloaded conditions (two to three plus times the recommended load) plus poor to no maintenance of the vehicle (old and/or worn tires, etc). All directly related to the blatant disrespect the coyotes have for the laws of this country as well as their fellow citizens.

You are so right, some people fail to see and accept that fact.

Here's a fun game to play. If any of you people go to church, why not take a moment to call your pastor and ask him whether, in the eyes of God, Americans are more valuable than Mexicans. (And if so, by how much.)

Want to play?
