AUGUST 15, 2007
In yet another tragic example of the governmentâ??s failure to protect Americans from violent illegal immigrants, a drunken Mexican man with a criminal record killed an entire family when he crashed his car into theirs on Houston freeway.
The illegal alien, Juan Felix Salinas, suffered minor injuries and was out on bond for a previous assault charge. His blood alcohol level was three times the Texas legal limit when his speeding vehicle rammed into another occupied by a 26-year-old woman, her husband and 2-year-old son.
The Williams family, which was returning from a movie, died immediately in the burning wreckage. Their small car was instantly demolished by the powerful impact of the illegal alienâ??s much larger speeding van.
Not only was Salinas free on bond in a criminal case, he had been previously deported to his native Nuevo Leon Mexico two years ago yet entered the U.S. again illegally and was allowed to remain in the country after his recent arrest for assault.
It took the horrific murders of three innocent Americans for federal authorities to finally take action. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have finally placed a so-called â??immigration holdâ? on Salinas, who has been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter. The Williams family would still be alive had their government acted sooner to rid the country of this multiple offender.
Making matters worse, Salinas didnâ??t even have a valid driverâ??s license and never should have been operating a vehicle on a U.S. highway. The Lone Star Times verifies that Salinas only had a Texas identification card frequently obtained by illegal immigrants.
