Letters: Hope over immigration reform?

May 22, 2013

Re "Hope is paying a visit again," May 18

Once again we have a "cry me a river" story in The Times about the plight of illegal aliens.

Hope is not paying a visit again. My son was killed in 2010 after being struck by an illegal alien motorist.

Hope is awakening from a nightmare and realizing your loved one is still alive and wasn't one of the more than 4,000 people a year killed by illegal alien drivers. (That's from my own research, based on a study done by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.)

You report that under the current reform bill, illegal aliens would have to pass a criminal background check. What it didn't say is that the current bill would allow for up to three misdemeanor convictions. Under the current bill you could kill people in two separate collisions and still be on a pathway to citizenship.

How about a story on the real victims of illegal immigration?
