People who don't obey the law won't obey the law when given more freedoms. Expect more DUI felonies which will get alot of people deported. Be ready for more American deaths.

DUI's culture gap
Latinos in S.J. account for disproportionate amount of arrests.

They think having a license is a get out of jail free card.

"No other ethnic or racial group has such a high level of DUI arrests statewide, according to the California Department of Justice. Whites account for about 41 percent of DUI arrests, Blacks make up about 6.5 percent, and the remaining 7.5 percent encompasses all other racial groups combined."

" The DUI arrest rate for Latinos in Raleigh, N.C., is 45 percent, while they account for only 8 percent of the population, said Eric Siervo, a public-policy manager at the National Latino Council on Alcohol and Tobacco Prevention in Washington.

ยป Latinos account for 43 percent of DUI arrests in Texas but only 32 percent of the population, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

"The Spanish-speaking population makes up 41 percent of Miami's citizenship and is overrepresented in death and injury caused by impaired-driving crashes," said Susan Isenberg, president of the Miami-Dade Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving."
