At a South Florida Democrat fundraiser, B. Hussein Obama opined on the origins of the opposition to open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.
From Micheal C. Bender's blog at palmbeachpost.com:
“A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year,” Obama said. “If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it’s not surprising that would happen.”
And all this time I was thinking it might be tragedies like this that are being repeated over and over and over again while our government twiddles it's thumbs.
Josh George died Tuesday night after his family made the difficult decision to remove the Bluffton High School student from life support.
Only George's immediate family was with him at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah. A waiting room had been filled with his friends and coaches since the two-car crash early Sunday in which George's vehicle was struck by an alleged drunken driver. George was coming home from the prom at Bluffton High School.
The suspect in this murder??
Following news of the death, Bluffton Police Chief David McAllister and Solicitor Duffie Stone announced they will meet as soon as today to discuss upgrading the charges against 20-year-old Juan Jose Olague Roman.
Roman was arrested and charged early Sunday with felony drunken driving involving a wreck resulting in great bodily injuries, leaving the scene of an accident involving great bodily injuries, driving without a South Carolina driver's license, operating an uninsured vehicle and disregarding a traffic signal.
After tracking Mr. Roman down by following the trail of car parts in his wake to a house occupied by nine others where he was renting a room, he also allegedly gave the officers trying to identify him a false name.
As I stated earlier, from illegal Mexican gangs murdering law officers and innocents in drive-bys to our children and grandchildren being senselessly snuffed out by illegals who have no business being in our country at all much less driving on our roads, I would have thought that might be what's driving the overwhelming majority of American's feelings on enforcing current immigration law.
