Two More Americans Struck Down

Donna and Sean Wilson

Add Donna and Sean Wilson of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, to the terrible list of innocent Americans killed by illegals aliens with numerous prior arrests. In other words, the Wilsons' shocking deaths from a frontal collision in a June 8 DUI accident were entirely preventable, and would never have happened if the government were doing its primary job of keeping out invaders.

Today's headline underlines how inept and callous the immigration bureaucracy has become: Man not deported after 14 arrests [The Tennessean, 6/16/06].

Federal and local authorities are trying to figure out how an illegal immigrant from Mexico managed to avoid deportation despite being arrested more than a dozen times in the past five years, agency officials said Thursday.

Gustavo Reyes Garcia, 28, has accumulated dozens of criminal charges and been arrested 14 times in Nashville without being flagged by federal authorities for being in the country illegally.

What's wrong with Nashville and the feds? The accused killer, Mexican Gustavo Reyes Garcia, had four previous arrests for drunk driving and should have been considered a dangerous person and shipped home after one DUI. Or even better, never allowed in at all.

Donna and Sean Wilson were active in the local Baptist church and had two grown children.
