“Nine Illegal Immigrants Killed in Palmview Accident”
I’m sure there is a valuable lesson for them to have learned here somewhere.
The bastards were trying to escape the scene.
Yeah. Like... if stuffed in a van with 20 people, never take the window seat.
Too bad. So sad.
It's too bad that the people, Obama included, that put down this great country don't view the U.S. as a land of opportunity like these illegals do. So many of them are at the mercy of coyotes, but yet come illegally because it is so much better here.
I realize that they are law breaking illegals, but if I were in their same situation, I might try to get to the U.S. for a better life also.
Wow. The US is such a s&^% hole of racial hysteria, I hate to see these wonderful and deserving people risk their lives like this to come here!! (sarc)
I wonder if say, Cuba or Albania, etc. have this kind of problem with people throwing caution to the wind JUST to get in...hmmmm.
I’ll bet the van was white too!!!
note to illegals. stay home its not worth it.
Well I don’t give a hoot about the invaders, but you make an excellent point about our own citizens not realizing how great it is here, and the reasons why, which they are trying to destroy.
What I want to know is if these ‘immigrants’ want to come LIVE in the US, why don’t they just cross at the legal border station?
I can’t wait for the survivors families to sue us for something.
And for the UN to chime in.
And for the various open border groups to cheer their courage for suing us.
And for Obama to say they looked like his imaginary latin son.
And the driver was a white Jewish Nazi member of the Illuminati.
I have asked for years this question:
If America is as bad a place as most liberals say it is, why do so many people try to sneak IN instead of sneak OUT?
Immigrants have green cards and are legal - is now - has always been.
the proper terminology is “illegal aliens.”
correct the media, if you can!!
True. I feel for the families of the dead.
It is too bad when a group can profit off the misfortune and death of others, but...hey... politics is a dirty business.
This is a result of a country and a people— Mexico, that has no shame, no compassion for it’s own people, a criminal regime for a government and absolutely no will or desire to fix itself, finding it much easier instead to break into our country, violate our laws, our citizens safety and property, steal our wealth and turn around and blame us for it’s problems. Mexico, where is your shame?
Mexico has socialized medecine and, at this point in time, very low unemployment combined with a bright economic outlook.
You don’t know squat. Those people could very easily be criminals deported from the U.S. and now returning to committ more crimes.
The male driver was reportedly in critical condition and was heavily guarded by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the hospital.
As the infallible Food Stamp President would say, “what we have here is a teaching momment”.
I agree. I want the invasion to stop, but I don’t wish ill on anyone. I do want illegals sent back home.
I wish Mexico could be improved so that we don’t have a flood of people looking for a better life.
Our food stamp president just lost a bunch of voters that might have voted for him several times over.
Update: Feds charge 6 with deadly accidently that killed 9
Not the 15 year old driver.
