Digger at Digger's Realm today discusses a topic that I unfortunately have personal experience with-- Illegal Alien Drunk Drivers.
In 1997 I was on the shoulder of I-35 at the Kansas City Airport trying to fix my car that had broken down. I had been under the hood of the car and dropped a bolt. I moved out from the hood just a split second before the car was totaled by a drunk, Illegal Alien who was backing up the shoulder of the Interstate. After hitting me, he left the scene. Thank God for a Good Samaritan who saw the whole thing, checked on me first (I had minor injuries) and then followed the illegals as they drove around the Kansas City Airport on blown tires.
The two Illegals were apprehended, and charged with DUI and Leaving the Scene. I found later that they served 30 days in jail and were sent back to Mexico. Of course, I was never compensated for the damages.
It is nice to hear that finally this issue is being given attention.
