The Washington Examiner posted an article today about Miguel Angel Villasenor-Saucedo, an illegal alien who fled the scene of an accident that killed two people in Louisville, Kentucky. Mr. Villasenor-Saucedo was charged in the accident and is still at large.
The article reports:
“Soon after the fatal accident, it was learned that Villasenor-Saucedo was a Mexican national illegally present in the United States,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. “Upon learning of Villasenor-Saucedo’s illegal immigration status in the United States, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office began investigating Villasenor-Saucedo and found that he had previously been deported from the United States on eight occasions and did not have lawful authority to be present in the United States.”
Despite the suspect’s background, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Villasenor-Saucedo faces “a maximum potential penalty of no more than 2 years in prison” if convicted.
Obviously I am not a lawyer, but 2 years in prison seems a rather light sentence for someone charged in an accident in which two people were killed. Also, if America actually had borders, this man would not have been in the country and those two women might still be alive.
Two families are having a very difficult holiday season because someone who should not have been in the country was responsible for the death of someone they love. It is time to enforce our borders. This is not acceptable.
