Virginia Virtucon notes yet another example of the effects of illegal immigration and the persistent failure of government at all levels to deal with the problem:
A 30-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador will spend four years in prison for crashing his pickup truck into a police cruiser while under the influence of alcohol.Jose Joe Velasco, of Herndon, was sentenced in Loudoun County Circuit Court July 23 with DWI, assault on a law enforcement officer and driving on a revoked license, Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman said. The DWI charge is Velasco’s fourth in 10 years.
This is precisely the situation that the Rule of Law Act would help to address. Instead of waiting for the fourth time an illegal alien drives drunk and assaults a police officer, his unlawful status would be determined at the first arrest and he would be deported well before even the second offense. When the open borders lobby opposes police checking the legal status of persons detained for a violation of state or local law, this is the kind of individual they are determined to protect.
