Ray Tranchant shows picture of his murdered daughter (from powhatan life)
The Virginia Commission on Immigration met in Norfolk recently, allowing one of the citizens of the Commonwealth who may have more authority to speak on this subject than many of us ever will, to have her chance to address these elected officials. From the Virginia Pilot:
Colette Tranchant cried as she held up a large photograph of her daughter, Tessa, at a public hearing on immigration Wednesday night at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
In March 2007, Tranchant’s daughter was killed by a drunken driver who was in the country illegally.
“We are losing something that no amount of money can replace,” Tranchant told the Governor’s Commission on Immigration, a 20-member panel that is studying the effects of immigration in Virginia.
That illegal alien that killed Colette Tranchant’s daughter had five previous interactions with area law enforcement for drunken driving, and was let go every time he was caught. It was only until this senseless tragedy that authorities did anything to remove this dangerous illegal alien from the Commonwealth. Deaths like these are 100% preventable, if only government would get and keep illegal aliens out of our country.
No jurisdiction in Hampton Roads has enrolled in the Section 287(g) Program that would allow criminal illegal aliens to be processed for deportation by local law enforcement or jail personnel. As a result, many criminal aliens are released back into this community after they are released from detention.
