An illegal alien living in Oregon who killed two people when he ran a red light while driving drunk received only a 12 year sentence for his crime.

Eduardo De La Lima-Vargas, a Mexican national, was arrested in August after mowing down a young couple, 34-year-old Logan Wilson, and 32-year-old Jessica Wilson, according to The Salem Statesmen Journal. 

He was driving a truck and pulling an occupied horse carriage. The Wilson’s were riding a motorcycle.

The grandmother to of the Wilson’s children, Debbie Stroud, expressed her malcontent at the light sentence.

“I didn’t think justice was served at all,” said she reportedly said.

Court records indicated that witnesses to the crash saw De La Lima-Vargas’ truck swerving wildly before the crash.

“The night of the crash, responding officers described Vargas as smelling strongly of alcohol and swaying on his feet while standing,” the report said. “He failed a field sobriety test and his blood-alcohol content was at 0.10% two hours after the crash.”

The legal limit to drive is .08 percent.

De La Lima-Vargas, who came to the United States as a teenager without any skills or education, highlights the problems with America’s immigration system that have not been addressed by elected officials in Washington, D.C.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice

Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.

Published

on

As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.

Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.

DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.

DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.

Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”

The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
