Michelle Malkin doesn't like it:
"After the White House news conference this morning, Bill Kristol on Fox News praised President Bush's remarks about 'immigration reform' as 'eloquent.' Beg to differ. The president's open-borders statements were empty, garish platitudes strung together sloppily like cheap Christmas lights…"
On immigration, the Administration is repeating the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.
Oreina Zarco-Alvarez, a 28-year-old Mexican immigrant farm worker, legal status unspecified, killed volunteer firefighter Mario Cuhna when she struck him with her automobile in Monterey County near Salinas last March.
Zarco-Alvarez, who fled the scene of the crime, had no driver's license and no insurance.
Although Zarco-Alvarez plead guilty to the lesser charges, the most serious, vehicular manslaughter, was dropped.
Writing for the Monterey Herald, reporter George Sanchez closed his story (December 14) with this observation made by her court-appointed lawyer: "…Zarco-Alvarez has two children in her native country whom she badly wants to be reunited with after her sentencing in February."
Sanchez (firstname.lastname@example.org) did not report the wishes of the bereaved Cuhna family.
