MADD Silent on Amnesty Law That Rewards Drunk Drivers

As preposterous as it may seem, illegal immigrants with drunk-driving, domestic violence, aggravated assault and child abuse convictions will qualify for amnesty under the immigration bill pending in the U.S. Senate unless an amendment introduced by a Texas lawmaker is adopted.

Incredibly, groups that would normally be vocal on these sorts of issues have remained silent. For instance, the nation’s largest organization working to stop drunk driving and support victims of the violent crime—Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)—refuses to criticize the proposed law even though it will essentially reward those convicted of driving dunk. Through a spokeswoman, MADD said it “doesn’t get involved in immigration matters.”

Under the current legislation, crafted by the bipartisan Gang of Eight in the senate, illegal aliens convicted of the crimes mentioned above are eligible for probationary legal status, officially known as Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI). This means they can qualify for a Social Security number and state driver’s license as they embark on a 10-year path to permanent residency. Three years later, candidates become eligible for American citizenship.

Here is a gut-wrenching example of who could benefit from this; an illegal immigrant who killed a 28-year-old father and seriously injured his two young children over the weekend while driving drunk on a New Jersey highway. The illegal alien, Manuel Gutierrez Vazquez, did not have a valid driver’s license yet had been arrested a few weeks earlier for driving drunk in another state, according to a local news report.

Though the outcome of the first DUI arrest is not clear, it’s not unreasonable to assume it wasn’t a felony because the illegal alien was released and he kept driving. Even if he was charged with misdemeanor DUI after the arrest weeks earlier, Vazquez would have been eligible for amnesty under the measure pending before Congress because it allows up to two misdemeanor convictions. Drunk-driving statutes vary by state and are often handled as misdemeanors settled with fines and community service when there are no serious injuries.

In many cases, as in this one, drunk drivers become repeat offenders. This week prosecutors in New Jersey’s Mercer County charged Vazquez with multiple felonies, including death by auto and causing serious injury while unlicensed. Convictions for those DUI felonies would forbid the illegal alien from receiving amnesty but it shouldn’t take the atrocious murder of an innocent person and serious injuries of his kids to exclude a candidate.

ASPCA is seemingly down fine with animal abuse as the Mexcrement is famous for animal abuse.

Ugh! I would lose my license to practice, probably end up with the yellow plates because I should know better.

Much to Spook's dismay, moving to Mexico; returning after a hiatus so I have some rights.

Hold on to them, Glit.'They' are taking away more every way they can.

MADD's always been a liberal group. When asked how they would like the government intruding into their home, warrentless, and searching it, the reply was, "I have nothing to hide." That's the mindset the idiots have.

You don't think that a person from Mexico would be punished the same as you for a DUI?

More Mexcrement. More animal abuse. ASPCA is silent on the Mexcrement invasion while knowing it abuses animals. Silence is approval.

I agree. To stand by and do nothing is an act in itself. An act of cowardice.

I do have to say, from my experience, the Mexicans that work and care for thoroughbred horses are hard working, kind to, and knowledgeable about the horses.

Where's the sign language button on this thing?

Your knee reflexes are just fine. Comprehension, reading skills, not so good.
