With all due respect to those people who died...........may that serve as a warning that the illegals need to stay home----------it is not worth risking their lives 'making a run for it'.

As usual, the hapless US taxpayer will be left to cover the costs of helicopter transport for 10 illegal aliens to various hospitals and all the bills they run up while in the hospital.

I doubt it; the accident occured in Pinal County just S of Florence* Sheriff Joe has jurisdiction over Maricopa County (Phx).

*BTW: I drove down that exact road 4 years ago and; suffice to say, it gave me the creeps.

Nineteen more reasons we need to GET SERIOUS down at the border, Greatday.

Thankfully there were no other vehicles involved which is generally not the case with these frequent accidents directly related to Illegals. This was probably nothing more than driver error and/or vehicle failure due to extreme overload conditions. 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.

I would cut ocexpo some slack here.........not many people outside of Arizona realize that Florence is not Maricopa County.

To do what? Scrape the human remains off the road?
For somehow willing this accident to happen?

Put the poms poms away. This wasn't an arrest or anything.

Yes what do they expect when they break every kind of law they can? They come in illegally, they drive without licenses and insurance, they can't read the road signs because they haven't bothered to learn English, they figure the seat belt laws don't apply to them.

Most likely this was a stolen SUV, stolen from some American and the driver not only didn't know how to drive but didn't know a thing about that particular vehicle.
