This guy gave the police 3 different names and the car had out of state plates. He shouldn't even have been living in this country. You can't even feel safe on the roads anymore. Lauren didn't deserve this.

I think this is an excellent idea. I believe the majority of people who drive drunk are alcoholics who just cannot drink responsibly. They don't bother with calling a cab, friend, or whatever. This way they would have no choice.
Only problem with this device in the car is the cost. Just like we legals have to pay for the non-legals attorney. I am sure we would end up paying for these devices into the cars of the illegals, because just like everything else, if they can not afford it, the rest of us are responsible for providing it. Still I wouldn't mine, however the people that don't mind, are the ones that are not going to drink and drive to begin with.

You whites complain when there are hispanics that happen to commit a crime, yet when there are hispanics that are trying to earn an honest living for a hard days work (which you would be incapable of doing yourself), you report them? If I was the contracter I would have returned to your house at 2am and smashed your windows for being such an ignorant @sshole.
"You whites"? What the hell does that mean? You racist. "An honest living"? How? By coming here illegally? That's a crime in itself and they don't pay income taxes, another crime among others. If you were a contractor you'd be out of business with that statement about smashing windows. A$$hole.

If this doesn't bother you then just delete the message. If, on the
other hand, it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hope you forward it to every legal resident in the country including every representative in Washington , D.C.- for as long as it takes to restore some semblance of intelligence in our policies and enforcement thereof.

I wonder which political party has the guts to do something about this.

Let me make a wild guess,illegal, no insursnce,no license and drunk.


It doesn't matter whether they were illegal or not, white or black, spanish or anything else. It was a stupid decision that could have been made by ANYONE. I feel so terrible for that poor young woman and her family, and I am very angry at all of the racial hate that I read day-to-day on these posts. I understand that many of you are upset about people who are here illegally and that is your right to voice that, however using terms like "wetback" aren't appropriate. It leads to prejudice. You're going to assume that just because someone is another race, automatically makes them illegal and that they have no right to be here - which isn't always the case.

So the illegals here who are bankrupting our country should be called what respectful name? Its not racisim to hate an illegals, they are criminals who are here for their own purpose and contribute nothing to society.
Wetback is kind of fitting for someone who would rather by pass the line, get shitty pay and then complain about it.

Thank You Melissa. Well said. I wish this country could do something about the people that are in this country illegally. But I don't hate them for wanting a better life.(No matter what country they are from)

Every day you see people on this board posting hatred about different races, nationalities, even hatred toward different towns. It's all very sad.

So using your analogy, I can move my family into your home and your neighborhood, because I want a better life for them. My neighborhood is not the best, and all I want is for my family to have a chance at a better life. Be sure to stock up on lots of groceries!

I AM laurens friend and will miss her dearly, all your ideas are great, fines and all but they will never bring her back. She was a unique individual always smiling, always worried about someone other than herself. Her smile brightened up any situation.... Life is not the same with out her. She is and always will be "STATUS AMAZING"!

Truth be said in the case of lauren he was illegal, the car wasnt registered to himself, nor is he a licensed driver... they cannot figure out who he is, he is not registered. They have reason to believe his car was stolen... so in this instance, if he want here ILLIGALLY i would still have my friend... he deserves the same as she got.. short changed on life.. Lauren suffered soo much, internally bleeding from almost every organ.. her chest was cut open to pump her heart...more than once... ILLEGAL people need to go and currupt there own country...

I did educate myself.
I found hispanic makes up 65% of the local court calendar. Yes, 65%
Mostly DWI/DUI, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, Criminal Impersonation, DisCon, Burglary, Robbery, Shoplifting, Domestic Violence, Assault, Various Weapons Charges, Public Intox, Child Molestation, you name it.
The Court Clerks office had to hire numerous full time spanish speaking clerks and a courtroom interpretor at taxpayer expense simply because YOUR people refuse to assimilate and learn the native language here, ENGLISH.
Its easier for you to play the race card and label me a racist hoping to shut me up and others like me for stating the facts and interfering with your overwhelming sense of entitlement. God forbid we should have the nerve to speak up.
And I suppose you will argue till you're blue in the face that la raza isn't a racist organization too.
You are nothing more than a hypocrite and a natural born racist.
I'm not against immigration, only against ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
thank you!!!!!!!!!! Im glad someone said it!
