Illegal Alien Who Killed Two in Drunk Driving Crash Only Gets 12 Years in Prison
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.
“De La Lima-Vargas was arrested on two counts of first-degree manslaughter, DUI, reckless driving and two counts of reckless endangerment following the deadly crash,” the report said. “He pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree manslaughter and DUI Wednesday.”
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.
