Where is the loss to America? Maybe all of those jobs that Americans don't think about and don't want to do, but would be upset if they had to live without. You don't think that there are tons of citizens clamoring to pick your food, do you?
The low price of illegal labor hurts us all. Do you think there would be as many unhealthy people in America is food cost more. You can not have healthcare reform until the number of fat people in America is reduced. Most drugs are for conditions associatee with being over weight.

At the bottom of the article it lists two other incidents that were 'hate' crimes against ecuadorean immigrants. Why in the h.e_l_l would they put that in there? Why didn't they list all the people ecuadorean immigrants have killed. I hate the msm!

Makes one want to go out and buy an SUV or a VAN and watch and wait for 'Ramdan' to cross a street somewhere.

After years of listening to illegals demanding;many citizens are sick of it.
We're sick of our government selling us out for greed.
We're sick of the illegals invading for greed.
And we CAN NOT allow ourselves to be swayed by the pity party.
These invaders will kill you in a heart beat given the chance. If you are white:they have stated they will remove you "by any means necessary".
Now,why would we care about people who threaten us again?
This is what it has come to,as has been planned by the elitists.
They want a war. Collateral damage.
Who was demanding? This guy was on his way to work. I have no beef with the valid argument that people should not be here illegally. I have a huge problem with those among us who think it doesn't matter that this guy died IF he was an illegal immigrant.

And the argument that illegal immigrants use up any significant portion of our resources is hogwash. Most of them do not use any resources at all.

Undocumented residents are guilty of a civil offense and are NOT criminals.

Illegal Presence in the U.S. has always been a civil, not criminal, violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Deportation and the associated administrative processes are civil proceedings.

IF YOUR A "SEMPER FI" guy, then you fought for the rights of this man whether he was legal or not...at one time ur ancestors came here for the prosperity that it provides.

People would give their left nut to be here and all you can do is discredit the human spirit to be free. Live where God is accepted, democracy and freedom reign.

I served my country for 10 years (Army) so a man like you can try and protect what was God given to you. Well, I believe we all deserve the opportunity to be free. If you were that man that died, you would have died "illegal", yes, but damn proud you gave it your best to be free!

I hope you ask God for forgiveness! I forgive you! God bless you!

I have a friend that's fighting as we speak in Afghanistan. He was born in Mexico, came here for a future, his family and has made it. He protects you in the streets of Chicago, and while serving his country in the Army.

Yesterday, our Illinois Army National Guard units in Afghanistan, which my friend served alongside, died in combat as suicide bombers wreaked havoc.

I served alongside this American citizen and former Mexican. He'd have my back, without a doubt. See past the color, status, religion and start living for something higher that yourself!

Thanks Chicago. I too feel the same way. Mr. Semper Fi is really Whimper Fi. He is a God-less fool to wish this kind of treatmnet on anyone.

According to the article the driver of the SUV did stop and call the cops. Possibly in the interim of stopping and calling the cops, the driver of the van, being two cars back and not having seen the accident or the victim, ran over him, entrapping him underneath the van.
Well, I and i'm sure 99% of other drivers are aware when they run over a small pot hole. How do you run over a body and not notice. That driver has absolutely no conscious. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

This will be hard to explain but I think the driver of the van didn't run over him with the tires of the van, but ran over him between the tires. So the initial motion when running over something was not felt. When the driver passed over the victim, he became lodged or caught underneath the van.

It was on TV. Traffic camera or security camera. You see one pedestrian cross the street and then the other guy...BAM!

Yes it is a tragedy that this little girl is missing. The local link here for news is the following:

http://news4jax.com
http://firstcoastnews.com
http://jacksonville.com

They brought in an equine search unit from Texas and folks with trail mules are looking. As you know Florida is boggy in some areas and nearly impossible to search on foot. Keep Haleigh in your prayers. This little girl needs them.

Yeah right,go to any Emargency room and yell "Immigration,papers please" and see how many people leave or faint!
Take a walk through an inner city school,and check out the number of illegal kids sitting in the classrooms!
Do a search on the net and get some real figures regarding the squandering of resources on illegals!
I fought and bled for my country,not for foreigners to come here illegally! The Illegal immigrants bring diseases,crime,and in this case,if the man was illegal,caused the drivers traumatic psychological stress!
I am sorry the guy died,but if he was here illegally,I am glad he is gone!
For those of you who are such bleeding hearts for the Illegals,I say you are unpatriotic to support people who wantonly and knowingly break the laws in place for the protection of Americans and people who have followed the laws and come here legally!

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free....This is what you fought for...the greatest country in the Universe. And people are willing to die to get here.
