Almost a year ago exactly, yet another drunk-driving illegal alien killed another American citizen. This time, it was Sarasota, Fla., and the vehicular killer will spend 13 years behind bars.
It’s a small price to pay for 26-year-old Daniel Garcia, the blotto border jumper who will be 12 years younger when he emerges from jail than Pamila Yoder, the 51-year-old wife and mother he killed without a moment’s thought of what might happen if he got behind the wheel.
Even as Congress considers legislation that would vastly expand the powers of the U.S. Border Patrol to enter land controlled by other federal agencies, the Obama administration has ordered that same agency to scale back its search for illegal aliens.
Despite numerous problems in the prosecution’s case, Border Patrol agent Jesus "Chito" Diaz was sentenced to two years in federal prison for convictions stemming from his supposedly rough treatment of an illegal immigrant caught smuggling drugs.
The Department of Homeland Security is authorizing illegal aliens to work in the United States, a Senate commitee learned October 19. According to CNSNews.com, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, got confirmation of this news in response to a question he asked Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano (photo at left).
