And to think that Houston remains a sanctuary city. Too bad Texas Democrats blocked the law that would have ended that status before this border-jumper killed Officer Kevin Will.
A motorist accused of killing a Houston police officer while driving drunk is in the country illegally, MyFoxHouston.com reports.
Police say Johoan Rodriguez was drunk when he drove his car into a road block Sunday morning, striking and killing Officer Kevin Will with the Houston Police Department.
Rodriguez has since been charged with intoxication manslaughter of a peace officer, felony evading, and possession of a controlled substance. Police say he had .3 grams of cocaine in his pocket along with an alcohol level of .238, according to the station.
I'm sure that we will hear all the right words out of the local Democrat politicians about how terrible this incident is -- but not one word will be uttered about the need to get rid of a class of people who commit a disproportionate share of crimes in our community (and that is setting aside the fact that 100% of them break our nation's laws just by being here). And when those of us on the right dare to point to the problem created by our out-of-control southern border, the usual race card will be played by the usual suspects.
But let's be honest about it -- if we did more to stop border-jumping and to remove the immigration criminals, we would not be preparing for the funeral of another a good cop who died doing his job. The same was said five years ago when the dead officer was named Rodney Johnson. Maybe next time, if the law enforcement officer killed by an illegal immigrant is named Hernandez, Salazar or Sandoval, those who style themselves as spokespeople for the Hispanic community will finally start giving a damn about the toll that illegal immigration takes in terms of the victimization of American citizens and legal immigrants at the hands of those whose right to break the law they defend.
