06/11/09 - A California Reader Sees Irony In Abel Maldonado's Possible California Gubernatorial Candidacy
From: Leo Ahumada, Flushing, NY
As you are probably aware, on the evening of Monday June 8 an illegal alien by the name of Zacaria Conces-Garcia killed an 8-year-old girl and her mother in Brewster, NY while drunk-driving. Here is the link to the story as well as video of the monster responsible: [Mom, child killed by alleged drunk driver, WABC Eyewitness News, June 9, 2009]
The reason I write to you is because I as well as many of my fellow citizens are sick, tired and angry of hearing this happen so frequently. My heart goes out to the victim's family. There has to be a way to get results from both our officials and ICE. The status quo cannot and must not be allowed to continue, regardless of what our detractors may say.
I believe that in the case of NYC and NYS, the elected officials responsible as well as officials in ICE should be held personally responsible for the deaths of all these innocent people. Perhaps it is time for the victims' families to come together in a class action suit against those responsible for allowing these criminals (and in the case of sanctuary cities, welcoming them to break our laws) to continue to live here without any repercussions at the taxpayers' expense.
I have nothing against legal immigrants, I myself am one. My parents and I immigrated from Argentina in the early 1970. We did it by the book, broke no laws and in time became citizens and productive members of our community. It angers me to no end when I hear or read in the media about these criminals being referred to as "immigrants" when in fact they are not.
My elected officials are useless (both parties, which at this point have morphed into one party). I've called ICE numerous times. (In my case I have personal reasons, because in 2005 the house next door was sold to a Salvadorian landscaper who has turned the home into a flophouse full of drunken dirty illegals and lots of pregnant young ones as well. Nothing like seeing someone defecating in broad daylight on ones shared driveway. Last month eight of them were arrested for MS-13 ties to a recent murder.)
I live in Flushing, Queens once a beautiful middle upper class neighborhood that is being turned into a Third World dump. And it has become a hotbed for Salvadorian illegals and MS-13—none of which seems to matter to the elected officials. For a brief period I was a US Border Patrol trainee, but towards the end of my training I suffered an injury which killed my aspirations of serving in a cause I believed in. (That fact hasn't been helpful when contacting ICE either).
I'm sorry for this rant, but I've witnessed firsthand how damaging our immigration system is.
