"Morales does not have a Minnesota driver's license, and "she doesn't have a (driver's license) anywhere that we're aware of," said Lt. Mark Peterson of the Minnesota State Patrol."

"Morales also told police she was driving to Norcraft Cabinetry, where she had been working for a month, and that it was her first time on County Road 24."

"Two brothers, the daughter of a teacher at Lakeview school and the son of a former Lakeview teacher were killed in the crash."

"Six people, five of them students, remain hospitalized at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center in Sioux Falls, S.D. One student was due to go home later Friday, spokesman Kenyon Gleason said. Two other students were in fair condition and two were serious; the adult at the hospital was in fair condition."

"Another student remains hospitalized at Mayo Clinic in fair condition."

I know that this is a hot button issue in America, and in Hamblen County. But when does Illegal stop meaning ILLEGAL.

More tax dollars spent on taking care of her while we wait to see who she really is. She took the lives of CHILDERN.

The company that she worked for should be investigated/fined for hiring her.

And since she is here illegally, she will most likely be deported, and not have to stand and answer for those lives. Then she will sneak back over here in a months time. Sad isn't it.

Don't forget Hillary Clinton's idea. She said at one of her campaign stops that she thinks illegal immigrants should be allowed to have a drivers license in this country.

I see no reason why this story is linked to a Morristown, TN forum.

So are people in Morristown not allowed to discuss anything outside of Morristown? Or are you a Hillary supporter who didn't like my post?

since it is posted in the Morristown "News" section and not the Morristown "Forum" section, i suppose it's more a sign of a bad editorial decision.

post/discuss on any topic you wish. i will do the same.

It is news for everyone, It is an example of how our country is playing "peek a boo" with the Illegal problem in America. Morristown has had it share of Illegal Hispanics killing legal citizens.

Anybody who connects this to her being illegal is racist, plain and simple.

Legal citizens kill people in crashes all the time.

This particular deadly driver being an illegal alien is completely irrelevant.
If you do not see why it is irrelevant then I feel sorry for you.

Illegal alien is not a race, it is a status. Therefore no racism is involved.

Same difference, prejudiced against a status instead of a race.
Citizenship status has nothing to do with with driving like an idiot.
How often do you hear about an illegal alien in a dealy wreck anyway, I haven't noticed many at all.

yet....

What about all of the local born and raised crack heads and the old drunks who kill people around here?

How about that high dude who wiped out that man and his baby daughter on the wrong side of the Interstate a couple of weeks ago, where was he from?...hmmm Tennessee maybe?

Or the old drunk up in Athens TN a couple of years ago who killed the teenagers and got out of his truck worried about his F*****G dog?

Or the idiot who killed the 2 teenaged highway workers on the Interstate last year, who was speeding in the rain with an illegal load?....hmm Tennessee again.

The list goes on.....

If the illegal alien had not been in this country maybe those people would still be alive. Deport all illegal aliens, I do not care where they are from. There are proper procedures to follow to gain access to this country.

All you just did was bring the argument full circle.
Your reply did not contribute anything new to the discussion.

My argument is that the driver's citizenship status did not contribute to the accident. The same number of people would have died the exact same way even if she were carrying a piece of paper saying she was legal.

The problem is not illegal aliens wrecking, the problem is the streets in general are becoming more deadly, this is due to unchecked elderly drivers, drinking, drugs, lazy cops and a lot of plain stupidity. We need to fix the real problems instead of trying to blame it on paperwork.

I agree. Remove all illegal aliens from the United States of America effective immediately!
