Keep the name Tyler Evans
in mind as you watch the Senate amnesty extravaganza this week. He was a four-year-old boy killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien last August. The driver, Christian Javier Sanchez-Rubio
, was a Mexican too inebriated to keep his vehicle in the right lane and as a result, an innocent little boy is dead and a loving family is devastated.
Sanchez-Rubio was recently sentenced to just 10 years in the West Virginia state penitentiary, with parole allowed. That sentence hardly seems adequate punishment for such a terrible crime.
Police said after his arrest that Sanchez-Rubio had provided a fake immigration document and a Mexican driver`s license, both of which identified him as Jose Carlos Madrigal. He had worked at coal mines throughout Boone County, police said.

Sanchez-Rubio was apparently racing with another man, Marvin Navarro
, when his Dodge Dakota truck plowed head-on into the car driven by Terry Evans, the father of Tyler. A younger son in the back seat, Micah, was injured but survived.
The family has posted a heart-breaking website in remembrance of the boy they lost — Tyler Lee Evans
— with many pictures showing happy family life — Tyler on his pony

of innocent citizens killed by illegal aliens
In addition to the family tragedy caused by a drunk-driving illegal alien, the case also awakened local concern
about foreigners taking mining jobs in Appalachia, a subject I covered last year ("American Miners Now Targeted"
). As usual, business owners want slave-cheap labor
and lie that the American work ethic is diminished.
