According to the figures cited by Rep. Steve King
, the crimes committed daily by illegal aliens take a shocking toll against innocent American citizens.
What would that May 1st look like without illegal immigration? There would be no one to smuggle across our southern border the heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines that plague the United States, reducing the U.S. supply of meth that day by 80%. The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day. Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals. Our hospital emergency rooms would not be flooded with everything from gunshot wounds, to anchor babies, to imported diseases to hangnails, giving American citizens the day off from standing in line behind illegals. Eight American children would not suffer the horror as a victim of a sex crime.

One recent addition to the tragic list of citizens sacrificed for open borders was Randy Fout
, 55, the Assistant Principal of Mountain View High School
of Meridian, Idaho. He was killed October 4 when his `72 VW Beetle was smashed by a stop-sign-running truck driven by illegal alien
, Jesus Guzman-Manzo. The car burst into flames
when it hit a power pole
. He was dead when rescuers were able to pull him out of the car.
The driver fled, and state police searched the area with dogs. He was located in the home of his aunt
Wednesday night, after she called authorities. He was later jailed for felony hit and run
. He may also be charged with vehicular manslaughter
Students described Assistant Principal Fout as an upbeat and friendly guy, encouraging to kids and caring about their well being and education.
"He`s so friendly and he makes everyone feel like their important. The way he asks his questions and he always wants to know about you. Even if he doesn`t know you personally, he will know you personally. He just loves all the students," said Kimberly Anderson, Junior."He was just one of those people that you wanted to be around all the time," said Brynn Seegmiller, Freshman.
